Harmon Return Policy Changes

drugstore skincare

As of April 20th the Harmon Return Policy has changed! Harmon’s used to take returns without an original receipt but starting in April they want you to have your original receipt in order to get a refund.

If you lose your receipt they’ll still offer a refund but it will be 20% off the selling price of the item. They can actually use the credit card you used to make a purchase to look it up if you do lose your receipt so long as the purchase within the last 365 days!

So if you’re anything like me and you kinda toss receipts willy nilly on your desk or into the bottom of your bag do BEWARE because you’ll be suffering a 20% cut off the item you return without it!

New QVC Shipping Rates

There are new QVC Shipping Rates that were launched today which look quite great!

New QVC Shipping Rates as of 2/2/2015:

  • All apparel, beauty, and jewelry ships at $3, regardless of price or weight
  • Most items under $50 and less than 1 lb ship at $3
  • Most other items under $100 and 1 lb or more ship at $5 or $7
  • Items $100 or more ship at existing S&H rates; however, many of these include S&H or offer free S&H

As part of this change, QVC will no longer discount S&H when you buy two or more items in the same order.

Additionally, QVC will continue to refund original S&H on returns if an item is defective or that was made an error.

I was exploring the site and even larger beauty purchases like the Clarisonic was marked at $3 to ship. I still hate I have to pay shipping on every single item I purchase but I love $3 shipping on all beauty, that’s VERY reasonable. I wonder what the return shipping label will be like, I think it was $5.95 to $7.95 before, curious if that will be $3 now too? I doubt it but here’s to hoping!

None the less, this is very exciting news!

Thanks QVC!

NARS Temptalia Foundation Matrix Goes Live!

temptalia matrix

NARS launched their newest foundation for the Spring season which is entitled All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. This long wearing formula promises fuller, natural looking coverage according to NARS and is available in twenty shade selections.

You know me, I do so love a natural looking foundation! I’m hearing great things about NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation so I’m eager to try it out for size.

Problem though, I have no idea what shade I am in NARS foundations. No worries though as Temptalia has launched a NARS Matrix that went live on her site today! It’s pretty darn nifty as it allows you to upload your own photo and uses a color discovery technology that analyzes skin tones and undertones to recommend you a shade of the All Day Luminous Foundation.

The technology created by was developed over a three month period and tested using hundreds of different photos across many different skin tones to perfect the algorithm, logic, and rules of the Color Discovery engine.

Tthe Matrix can be used in one of two ways the first of which is by taking a high resolution photo and uploading it to the engine. When uploading your photo keep in mind that it must be a clear, high resolution image that does not have a busy background. Once you upload the photo you can use some tools to perfect the lighting of the image and other settings. Now the nice part is the engine works to either select and recommend a shade of the new NARS foundation or it’ll choose from other popular brands like MAC, Dior, Laura Mercier, and more!

The second option you won’t need a photo! Just select the foundation from a range of different brands, tell the Matrix about your skin and undertones, and it’ll recommend you colors in the foundation product you selected.

The Temptalia Color Matrix is something that Christine has labored over for several years and this new and improved version takes things to an exciting level bringing you an easy way to get a foundation color match without every leaving your computer.

You can try it for yourself now at
