I'm over IT Cosmetics and more

This is a good place to vent your frustrations, so those of you that are ready to tell me "if you don't like it, don't buy it" can save it. I am so tired of IT cosmetics, their constantly overly excited reps and the same products being offered either on TV or .com. I am so happy QVC has brought UD and Becca in to offer some alternatives. We used to have so many more options for clothing, jewelry, makeup, everytihng and I've spent SO much money at the Q over the years I don't even want to know. They seem to be narrowing down their presentations and offerings to I assume what sells the best; or maybe the brands are getting tired of them!

And for those of you that say, just don't watch, there was a time in my life where QVC was my friendly, fun place I could go to get away from things. It wasn't just a TV channel.  I could count on the hosts' expertise and friendliness and if a product was offered by QVC, I could count on it. So for people like me, it IS sad to see those things go away. 

That may seem ridiculous to some of you, but many of you long timers know what I'm saying.

👍yes! to the first half of your post.

But the highlighted section is gone, because what the public requires from shopping has changed dramatically since then.

   But I think it's natural to experience it as a loss.

I loved one mascara that was gifted to me, and by the time to order it, nowhere to be found.Smiley Sad

I ❤️ IT Cosmetics but I do grow tired of the constant airings. I just stay on top of new products, ODOs, etc. on QVC.com.

That’s where I do all of my Q shopping, with a rare exception. If I want a demonstration I click on the video.

Re: I'm over IT Cosmetics and more

I do like a couple of their things, primarily for the silk they use in the powders. Even Hourglass does not come close.

Ah, yes, the lack of options....

Can't say I miss Capodimonte, though.
