Home shopping is addicting

Last night, I was browsing through the channels and saw that NARS was having a beauty event on QVC. I thought I’d check it out and see what they had to offer (I was bored). I got completely sucked in and ended up ordering a lip gloss set.


Shades in set:
-Triple X, a clear shine
-Striptease, a candlelight nude
- Harlow, a silvery mauve
- Orgasm, a sheer, warm pink with golden shimmer
- Bloodwork, a red vinyl

The way that they speak about the products that are being offered completely sucks you in. I need to make it a point to stay away from that channel or I’ll end up ordering something completely ridiculous that I don’t need. They talk about the products like you’re missing the next big thing and start talking about how many were already sold! Like if you don’t buy it soon, you’re going to be sorry. I know that’s their goal and it worked on me hook, line and sinker. The good thing about my situation is that I know NARS products are fantastic, so I don’t feel too bad about it.

Am I the only one that’s ordered something off of home shopping?

I have yet to order anything but I get seriously sucked in. {seriously} I am sure it is only a matter of time before I cave.

Oh Jules, you are not alone. I watch these things almost every night {that made me sound like a total loser}! I get sucked into it all - Bare Escentuals, Philosophy, Dooney & Burke! I'm definitely a home shopper!!! haha!

Jill said...

Oh, I know!!! I bought a wrinkle cream once and it really didn't work. :) They can suck you in.

I've not ever ordered from HSN, but I think it's worse that I bought something off an information once! It was that Bare Escentuals mineral powder and I have actually loved it. I bought it about 6 years ago and had never heard of it before getting sucked in its informercial. Fortunately now they sell at reputable places so at least I wasn't scammed - LOL.

Your dogs are adorable!

I've never ordered anything off QVC, but have been tempted!

Oh my goodness... I hate to say it, but I fall asleep watching QVC all the time!! I got sucked into a Philosophy one the other night, but luckily I didn't buy anything.

Let me know how the orgasm gloss is- that is the blush I use and I have always wondered about the gloss.

I keep hearing that! QVC is like the most watched show. LOL I better not start as I have a major shopping issue. xoxo

Good thing I wasn't watching that channel! HA! Those glosses are gorgeous, good purchase. I get so weak when it comes to make-up and stuff like that. When I went to Sephora the other day (with a lock on my wallet) it was the hardest thing I had ever done. Now I know what alcoholics feel like when they go into bars. it's just not healthy! On a good note, I will be indulging in Sephora over T-giving break, Ive been saving a little extra each week so I can go WIIIIIILD in there!
Have a great weekend!

I'm so guilty about falling for QVC stuff!! My mom is worse though, everytime she sees something on tv she buys it. You should see how many of those radish curler things we have in our kitchen...

I get sucked in all the time. My husband thinks I'm nuts. I rarely buy anything...but I do sport a Diamonique wedding band to work so I don't ruin the real deal under my gloves.

I have a confession....Im a QVC junkie! Aww! My aunts got me sucked into it, almost every Sunday we meet up for dinner and have a QVC watching party lol. Such a thrilling Sunday I know! Now is the best time to watch because of all the holiday stuff! Just wait til run into a Philosophy show, now those will suck you in!

Whitney said...

I can't watch HSN or QVC because inevitably, I will ALWAYS buy something. Ha!

The Browns said...

Oh, I love Nars too! I love their blush after my sister got me addicted to it!

Luna said...

i love those colors.

My mom got me hooked on home shopping. First HSN and now I prefer QVC. I've purchased tons of stuff.... In fact, I especially love Judith Ripka's line for QVC and she's on Sat and Sunday. Do you use ebates (free to sign up and you get cash back for purchases). QVC sometimes offers up to 6% back, so that's a great way to shop and save a litle....

Kari said...

pretty glosses! while i've never ordered from qvc, i admit i ordered makeup from an infomercial once lol. good purchase, nars is the best!

Wearing Mascara said...

I love their glosses. Let us know when you try the red vinyl. I've always wondered how it looks on!

Gwen said...

My grandma shops QVC all the time but I have yet to do so. She does find the cutest things for the little ones though. :) XOXO

For some reason I do not love online shopping, thank goodness!!! Love NARS lipglosses -- my fav right now has one on each end!

I'm addicted to QVC. It's my mother-in-laws fault. She's the one that introduced me to it. Love your blog.

Ooh, I love watching home shopping and I saw that NARS was gonna be on, but I didn't watch it. I do have the Orgasm lip gloss though (and blush) and it's a great color. I think you'll be able to use all of those!

Katie said...

Josh and I just ordered a TON of stuff from american eagle online because they were having such great deals.

Lis said...

Oh geez, Michelle from Stuttering Shell has me HOOKED on QVC now! It's crazy how interesting that channel is!

And I got a similar NARS lipgloss set at Sephora about 2 weeks ago and I am loving them all! I think "striptease" is my new favorite! :)
