Last time I went to Jo Malone I noticed that the perfume in the bottle was clear, not the light yellow as usual. I released something wasn't right but din't know then they were bought by EL. What a shame... It was my staple brand, and luckily, I have a few bottles at home and will be using very sparingly. Until they last.Didn’t EL buy our Jo Malone? I used to love JM but tried after they were bought out and have never bought again.That I can see on Q.
I remember this too!I remember a few years ago, maybe 5 or 6 (possibly more though, I'm not 100% sure), the Christmas Day TSV was an Elizabeth Arden collection. I'm not sure how well it sold as obviously the programmes for that day are pre-recorded, but the brand was never seen or heard from again on Q.
Turandot it's on at £35 +£2.95 for 20ml & 50ml £79 +£2.95 - how does this compare to normal high street prices?
My mum wore Youth Dew way back. Yes, they sell it and the dreaded Double Wear. It is very long-wearing like 16 hours and really for oily skin and heavy coverage but they brought out lighter versions. I remember on a beauty forum a lady in her mid-60s with dry skin telling us she went to try an EL foundation explained her skin type etc and the first thing the SA did was pull out Double Wear.
Estee Lauder is seen as a brand for mature ladies, they did try being hip by getting Kendal Jenner as the face of the brand a few years back. Did not attract any younger people and miffed off their normal customer base. Then they did a collab with Victoria Beckham then she moved on and brought out her own makeup range.
As said usually if EL brought out a brand example Aveda first thing they did was pull the brand from QVC UK. I remember being at the Aveda counter which had just opened in Debenhams way back and the counter manager telling me "Oh we are leaving QVC, they are too low for Estee Lauder brands!" Bobbi Brown on QVC US used to get TSVs and we are talking quite a few and Bobbi appeared on there. We never got any and she never ever appeared on QVC UK.
Estee Lauder like a number of the other big brands who used to go around buying up other brands are having hard times at the moment. EL was bidding to buy Charlotte Tilbury but pulled out when the price got too high for what they could afford. Puig ended up buying CT and rumour has it for a billion!
They have just brought out a new updated version of Advanced night repair serum.
I've got samples, it feels heavier than the previous one, doesn't soak in as well, and I don't like it.
The spiel for it is off the scale though, as it often is. Some products should be left alone, it was already really good.
Youth Dew good grief yes! I admit to wearing it in the 70s. It must have been detectable in the next street. It makes me feel ill now if anyone walks past me wearing it.
Their Double wear foundation is dreadful but their Double wear mascara is great.
I’m not surprised EL is on QVC because QVC are desperately running out of things to flog by the looks of it, because they’re selling more high street brands than ever before especially the likes of Joop and Davidoff for example, even Baylis and Harding, once the individual p&p is added though it makes it more expensive than the high street so can’t see why they’re bothering, unless they’re trying to be like IW......again......who sell Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gautier, and Oscar de la Renta to name a few.

It's great that you always keep us (me) updated about the goings on at iW. Shoppy by name, shoppy by nature. I hate watching IW - it just seems muddled, so
Looking at the prices listed on Q for EL items, you could buy them a bit cheaper when JL or Debenhams have their 10%/15% discount days, as well as some other online retailers of course.
The advantage for Q will be the money back guarantee though, which is great if you are trying for the first time.
