QVC is more than a shopping channel. I have recently discovered that you can order online (and through their app) and as the exclusive stockists in the UK of U.S. top natural brand Tarte Cosmetics, this is an important fact to know! Tarte is hot Stateside and it is picking up heat over here in the UK as well. On my current wishlist are Lights, Camera Action Mascara and the Amazonian Clay Concealer.
QVC is also the exclusive stockist for Josie Maran skincare, another popular U.S. brand. There are plenty of suprises to be found through QVC – here are some of mine!
QVC also stocks brands that are hard to find elsewhere such as Algenist (which I’ve only ever seen in Space NK) – a high performance skincare brand from San Francisco. I’ve also discovered that when you shop online through QVC and when you are taken to the product page, you can also watch videos that explain what the product does so it’s very useful! Interviews are with beauty professionals, brand ambassadors, scientists and make-up artists who can explain the product that you want to purchase. I think it’s really useful because it brings the department store to your fingertips and the beauty hall to you. It’s all about self-service!
Some products that I like and that you may or may not of heard of yet are:
While researching renewable energy solutions, a team of scientists uncovered Alguronic Acid – the breakthrough ingredient found in Algenist skincare. This patented anti-ageing ingredient can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to leave you with a more even and radiant-looking complexion.
A unique haircare line made from locally grown super-botanicals of the rainforest which are combined in never-seen-before combinations – unprocessed, raw and natural.
Murad is now well known but wanted to highlight the range anyways as they make such good products! Hydro Dynamic Ultimate Moisturiser from Murad has a thick, creamy, velvety texture and dramatically hydrates for up to eight hours.
Simply apply the water-resistant lotion once a day help to protect your skin from harmful sunrays and combat the premature signs of ageing. I need this one for summer!
OPI is one of my favourite nail brands out there. The nail polish stays on and looks fantastic. I am in love with this dusty rose nude – it’s perfect for every season. The brand is the choice of Hollywood’s A-listers and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me!
I have recently fallen in love with Joan Collins lipsticks – she makes a good one! This is a brown-toned one called Katrina and I absolutely love it – the colour is unique and the formula is very hydrating so your lips don’t feel dry.
I hadn’t heard of Laura Gellar before until I discovered it through QVC. Renowned make-up artist Laura Geller’s cosmetics range features her innovative baked formulas and easy-to-apply, wearable colours and collections, perfect for women of all ages and skin types. This is a gorgeous one below and great for holidays because it contains highlighter, powder, bronzer and blush all in one compact!
