In Other News MAC Cosmetics Is Now Sold at QVC and HSN

Welcome to a world where you can buy MAC Cosmetics at QVC and HSN. Yup, that’s right MAC Cosmetics is now sold at HSN and QVC as of today! As you know MAC became available at Ulta in 2017 and also, launched at Sephora in Canada around the same time. It was a shock to see MAC, which is commonly associated with department or freestanding stores, to available and sold at Ulta. I never thought I’d see the day! But Ulta has been busy collecting many different Estee Lauder brands lately. Sephora obviously lost the bid on that one because US stores never did get a lease to sell MAC in stores.

Fast forward three years later and MAC is now sold at QVC and HSN as well! What’s interesting about this would be the fact that both QVC and HSN have a huge catalog of MAC on offer. When MAC launched at Ulta it really started out with smaller selection of product. Not the case with this launch! I see a lot of the regular catalog items available from lipsticks to single eyeshadows and palettes. I wonder in the future if they’ll get the seasonal launched too.

The thing that’s great about MAC being at QVC and HSN is the ability to not only save money but also buy items in a bundle. If they do seasonal collections imagine buying value sets from this collections at a cheaper price? That would be great! Both QVC and HSN have many deals and sets from a variety of brands available so I don’t see why they wouldn’t do the same with MAC.

Both QVC and HSN also offer installment billing on almost all purchased they can be paid over the course of 4 to 6 monthly payments. It’s sort of a win win situation having MAC available for purchase from these locations.

Some folks might find it weird seeing MAC offered on shopping networks but as an avid QVC/HSN consumer I’ve always scored great deals on many different luxury and mid-range brands like Tatcha, Too Faced Cosmetics, Urban Decay, and many more.

What do you think of MAC Cosmetics turning up at HSN and QVC?

Thanks to Kimberly for sharing this info today!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Products sold on shopping channels can bring in a lot of money. No rent, overhead, salaries, etc. The cosmetics industry is struggling. Consumers want deals and discounts. I know that I do. Far too many products are being released and end up at discount shops.

    Don’t know if the Canadian shopping channel will get Mac products. Lots of small towns and rural areas in Canada where people cannot get mid to high end products without traveling an hour or two or more to a metropolitan area. It makes the product more available. Some folks may think it may cheapen the brand. If our shopping channel can sell iPads and more, it can certainly sell some makeup.

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen. The old attitude of keeping products limited and hard to find is clearly no longer drawing in customers. As a previous poster said, the cosmetics industry is struggling mightily. Seems that the only holdouts to fire sales and mass markets are the few very high-end brands like Chanel, etc. I will be interested to see if they too have to revise their marketing strategies.

    This article and the comments are really making me think in a positive direction. I know the two big issues of this year are causing a lot of pain, but they have also suppressed some serious negative concerns. I know, that sounds vague. Suffice to say, I really like the good things happening this year and celebrate the end of some things that needed to end a long time ago.

        My own scattered thinking. Not really relevantly negative about MAC or cosmetics in general. A better way for me to rephrase would be,

        Beauty and fashion industry, and your/this website in particular is a genius forum to discuss political and intellectual issues. The general public thinks beauty and fashion are shallow subjects.
        We are proving them wrong.

        But I imagine it creates enormous amounts of work for you to go through the comments.

        Who would ever have thought high end brands would be affected like this? In past recessions, I don’t think they were this much affected.

        About my scattered brain, I blame it on the eclipse and this year’s months long planet retrogrades. It’s been affecting some of my relatives too.

        End on positive note. The Muse website is a fascinating wide scope look into the style world.

          oooo ok! I got ya now ;-D You are right. I think many people think beauty is a very shallow topic. I also think right now speaking about it or fashion not only appears shallow but also, perhaps selfish. COVID, BLM, and the upheaval of our world is topic priority so when you’re blogging about beauty you def come across as some shallow, unenlightened individual. But I truly believe you can get into a deep, intelligent, and sure, political conversation when you talk fashion and beauty. Ugh! I have 700+ comments to get through and they are all pending because I like to write back as much as possible but sometimes I overwhelm myself lol! It’s weird what’s happening to luxury brands but maybe change is what we need! A little shake up to keep things interesting right? Maybe it’ll make us value the things we do have versus the consumerism we were giving into the last few years! THANK YOU that made my day ;-D
