I found some videos last year during shutdown. I do my eye make up a bit different, and my blush. (eye-liner not all the way to the far corner of my eyes and the line finishing up, not down, also my blush is higher so it doesn't drag my face down. Medium to light neutral eye shadows rather than darks.)

Here's one video that reminds me so much of MBR and JRT's current applications. A few changes make a HUGE difference.

 

@TexasTiffany,  you nailed it with your post and that photo could actually be MBR's poorly and inappropriately applied eyeliner.

Here's Chaz with one of his dogs and a model from the beauty show last night. I made this screenshot to show the dog, but then I kept thinking there was something odd about the picture. It's the model! She was wearing a green gaiter mask that matched the color of the large aloe plant (?) behind her. If you squint at the picture, it looks like the aloe leaves are part of her face, like she's some alien creature.  You can imagine Chaz fainting when she turns around and he realizes he was styling a leaf head monster.

Poor Janie is really starting to look worn and torn.  Fake exuberance at her (our) age can be exhausting and takes a toll.

She needs to tone everything down.

I love her hair style. Trying to get mine into a version of that, just a little longer. 

And I'm an XL/1x, but I think she is a large? Maybe a large/XL?

I do like her. I think she is for real. I think?

IMO, KG is beautiful at any size. The southern belle shtick works for her.

Her beauty pageant history and involvement certainly gives her a leg up in knowing how to accentuate the positive.

I give her credit for hard work + creativity = success

JohnnyStar5...with all due respect, I don’t  really think JT’s exuberance is “faux”. I really do think she’s a Norma Desmond. When that red light goes on, so does she. She seems to feed from it. She looks worn, just like Norma, because she’s stuck in the makeup fix that she’s been in for decades. She’s addicted to the energy of being a “star”, albeit on a small stage. She can’t...won’t...give it up until it gives her up. 
oy...listen to me...psychiatrist to the stars...🔮🤦‍♀️

IMO, the Blabster’s downhill slide became apparent when she began neglecting her hair.

Looking back at old pics, a well groomed head of hair softened her look.

Her current lazy, sloppy, clumsy, depressed self assessment is all I can think of when looking at her.

A prop glass of wine in her hand at all hours of the day reinforces my thoughts of something deeper going on than a camera-ready smile.

I agree. I can watch her and listen to her easily, and enjoy it. (mostly....sometimes she can get a bit hyper and I have seen a few of her items that veer towards garish but mostly not). I watched her last night with MaryBeth and I think they worked beautifully together.

These days, I'll stick around and watch anyone on QVC who isn't screaming at me, cackling at me or with a co-host, looks well groomed, gives good info on the product, or doesn't make up storylines and says she's a spy in the Czech Republic who sells fruit baskets as a side hustle.....

So, I rather enjoy Kim Gravel.  Sure, she gets a little boisterous from time to time, but when she does, it feels like real joy instead of manufactured BS.

That's the million dollar question.  Shortly before she departed the Q, she celebrated her 25th anniversary, and mentioned something along the lines of hoping to be there for 25 more.  So why say that, then leave?

I do too. Besides liking her personality, I appreciate that she really knows her products inside and out and presents them well. Contrast that with some designers like Isaac, who often looks surprised when he sees one of his items, as if he's laying eyes on it for the first time (and probably is!).

She had people doing her hair back then. She can't handle that curly mess for some reason, even though  they show straighteners all the time.

A caption from Just Jill's article:

Me and my QVC colleagues at the funeral of Joan Rivers

OK, first, the grammar. Drives me insane. It's bad enough when people say it, but to have it in print when you have time to proof read and edit is inexcusable.

Second, the caption talks about being at Joan Rivers' funeral and they are all smiling like they are at a party. I just found that really offensive. A little smile, perhaps, but not like they showed in this picture.

Agreed.  The photo posing, taking, and posting was in such poor taste.

I remember seeing it when it was originally posted and thought "who takes a photograph at a funeral?" 

A bunch of QVC egomaniacs who need to hitch their wagons to the nearest celebrity, dead or alive.  That's who.

You'd think being on television almost every day for years on end would be enough to satisfy them, but seems like it caused an attention addiction.

After the bell pepper incident the other week I think someone has given David some rudimentary training in knife skills. He dealt with an onion in the chopping board and knife set demo a little more confidently, but still looked very much like a rookie.

What a stupid, disingenuous thing for David to say about a product that has his brand name on it, and not on the back but right on the front!

Sundays were the day my husband and I would watch ITKWD.  We can't anymore.  He is so full of himself in a way he hasn't been before.  I know he was always pretty self-important, but lately he's just become unwatchable for us.  The repetitive product doesn't help, either.

A very special edition Medic Alert bracelet, exclusive to QVC and ITKWD.

It automatically calls 911 if you are eating any of David's Half Homemade recipes, to alert the hospital to get the angioplasty instruments ready for your arrival.

It will account for differing levels of urgency, depending on what you ate and quantity consumed.

Example:

Mac and cheese with bacon and 14 different cheeses:

One serving:  Ready the heart monitor

Three quarters of a baking dish:  Sterilize the unclogging equipment

 

Buy as many as you want.

Store in your gift closet.

Give out at Christmas for immediate use, after you've served the donut bread pudding. 

Comes in 12 colors.

Sure.  Just like the at-home parties where adult beverages are served.  Inhibitions lessened = more sales.

Back to:an earlier post, I have not noticed that the wine in JRT’s glass gets any lower.  It is a prop, unlike Shawn’s use.  (I don’t really care if Shawn is drinking,  but don’t want other who care, to think JRT is in the  same sales mode.)

Susan Graver:  "Women tell me they've changed over their entire wardrobe to liquid knit."

Well, they're just nuts. 

Jen (wearing Susan's tie sleeve liquid knit top): "I'm 5'6" and wearing the xx small."

Then, without mentioning the dwindling pandemic, but planting a seed that another cause of death is right around the corner:  "Life's just too short to be uncomfortable."

The top was pulling under her arms, but baggy all over the body of the shirt.  Same fit on an even slimmer, less busty Kadisha.

Pulling is not comfortable.  It's right up there in annoyance with an itchy sweater or fly buzzing around your face.

I guess with all of Susan's attention to creating a properly fitted trouser, she totally forgot about properly fitting a top.🤷‍♀️
