So, Estee Lauder products are going to be sold on QVC?

It's not like Lauder can't be bought anywhere else........very boring.

 

It's not most of their junk can't be bought anywhere else. Honestly, the channel has gotten so bad it's almost not even fun to mock it anymore.

I wonder how successful they have been with the products they bring in to attract a younger audience. It seems like the clothing lines don't last very long. I bet a lot of the makeup lines are shipped directly from the vendor so it probably doesn't cost the vendors much to be on there. And if they don't sell much through Q, no big deal. Programmer Jennifer, we demand answers.

I love looking at the sweaters on Irish days, but I have two that I never wear.  Too expensive to give away!! 😂. I guess I will just look at them and admire them.  lol.   Kind of like that Quacker Factory appliquéd suede jacket I have!

Estee Lauder is actually going to be a tsv!  I guess with all the malls and dept stores closing, they need to resort to home shopping. Their night repair is a great product though as boring as it is. Tried and true!

Unfortunately, everybody on QVC presented it as an old lady product. They all went on and on about remembering their mothers using it, and other old products such as Youth Dew. Estee Lauder needs a perked-up ad campaign for the product, leaving out the emphasis on the history of the Mrs. Lauder, and positioning it as competitive with newer products. Maybe they could also repackage it in some more attractive bottles. Those bottles are very meh.

EL is definitely recognized as a mature and classic product line. An original in the beauty business. Sadly, the Q hosts made sure to remind us over and over.  I discovered the Night Repair from numerous bonus samples my Mom or I would get by purchasing their other products over the years. I didn't realize it worked until I stopped using it for and few days. It's one of the few serums that absorbs quickly into the skin, is not smelly (very important), nice texture and makes your skin feel and look soft. Their Doublewear foundation is great too but expensive and there's much more affordable and just as good out there in the drugstores.  They should update the boring brown bottle. Reminds me of Perricone which I tried a sample and not good.

because they are obsessed with "story" thing ,  too much on everything with the "story"  it's one brief sentence you go into the product 

I can never tell who QVC wants to sell to ,

Almost ten years ago, Estee Lauder did their collab with Lilly Pulitzer. It was very popular, but I think people were buying rando stuff just to get the Lilly bag and Lilly branded GWP items. I don't think it did anything to create brand loyalty. I myself did not continue to use any of the products I bought so I could get the GWP. Estee Lauder was a few years ahead of the 2015 Lilly x Target that basically broke Target and caused the cancellation of the in-person Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale (of which I was a camp out veteran). 

I agree on the repackaging and I think they would be wise to launch another collab with brighter/more luxe looking containers. In this age of social media and social media influencing, everything is about how things look in photographs. Although I do think Advance Night Repair should stay the same in its chem lab bottle - that is a forever classic!

So is Quacker Factory gone from qvc?

No, but the hours have been drastically reduced and most of the little time it has is spent over on Q2 (Angel is one of the OAPs who does a host-your-own live show once a week).  Angel has said on air more than once that it's because they're having trouble getting new product in from overseas so they have less available to sell.  They've also started saying this more with respect to D&Co and I'm sure they have problems with others, so there's more than one clothing brand in which they're digging stuff out of the warehouse just to have stuff to put on air.

I thought about trying this Laura G TSV when I saw it on the QVC home page a couple of days ago, but watching Laura’s brief demo video about the colors made me see it’s not for me. Not one cool shade for those who have pink undertones.  Her range is more limited that It Cosmetics.

I don't buy the story that they can't get product.  Other lines like Logo, Gravel, Graver and the like don't seem to be having problems getting their stuff.  Maybe if they didn't produce their products in slave labor camps in China, they wouldn't have so many problems.  Yeah, yeah, I know things would cost more, but I have no problem with that.  Hell, Graver's stuff is already expensive even though it's made overseas.

When did Q start not allowing returns on sale items?  I noticed today on Q2, they're doing clearance items and it's all sales final, no returns whatsoever.  I know I've returned sale items before when they didn't fit.

From what I understand, with the items that get the final sale designation returns are only allowed if something is defective or Q screwed up, like sending someone the wrong item.  Otherwise, congrats, you own it.

Some of that stuff has likely been sitting around for years.  As well, they're also clearing out things that are very limited in size and/or color, so even if you wanted to do an exchange you probably can't.

I watched a bit of Chaz Dean's WEN stuff this afternoon.  I don't even know where to start.......he's always been a bit odd to me in both the looks department and demeanor.  Now, he's over the top.  Just plain weird.  I swear, he's like a Bubble Boy - can't do this, can't wear that, this gives him migraines, can't be in the sun.......on and on and on.  I get it and feel for him, but couldn't he try to be just a little bit normal?

I think that once people become wealthy, they can get more nitpicky, especially if they are celebrities who have an entourage of people stroking their egos.. The rest of us have to learn to live with a lot of crap.

Maybe Chaz Dean and the Unwashed One could be sent to a camp this summer. Some sort of bucolic place where they can be coaxed out of their eccentricities and back to a sense of renewed normalcy.

Has anyone noticed this about our friend Jane......She is CONSTANTLY adjusting whatever top/shirt she wears, she even pulls it down prior to sitting down on the couch.  It almost is a nervous tick, it is constant.  Next time she’s on, watch it.  It’s very odd

Jill B did that all the time,  it's because the clothing doesn't fit them properly

across the sizes of all the women most of the time they are in too small clothing , even Ade had on some pants that were too tight for her

Absolutely! Everything is ill-fitting (i.e., too small) and therefore shows every lump and bump, which is why the constant tugging. Carolyn does it too, although not nearly as much as Jane.

It's amazing how sensitive world-wide shipping is to the slightest hiccup in the system. I think covid related stoppages led to many of the advance order items.

Yeah, each one of those shipping containers loaded on board are about the size of a semi trailer.  Makes one wonder wth happened.
