QVC, Cosmetic Executive Women Launching Charitable Cancer Beauty Initiative

April 23, 2013

QVC is partnering with Cosmetic Executive Women Thursday with a program whose net proceeds will benefit Cancer and Careers, a program of the CEW Foundation that supports men and women balancing work and cancer, the home shopping network said Monday.

The two-hour broadcast, “QVC and CEW Present Beauty with Benefits,” will feature more than 15 prestige beauty brands across categories and price points. It will air at 9 p.m. Thursday.

The event aims to will highlight the philanthropic efforts of the beauty industry while giving viewers a chance to support a worthy cause through a multiplatform shopping experience.

“From color cosmetics and fragrance to skin and hair care products, various products from select brands such as bareMinerals, tarte, StriVectin and Mally Beauty will be offered,” QVC said in its press release.

As added incentives, QVC is offering a gift with purchase that consists of beauty samples from participating brands, and shipping and handling will be offered at no charge.

“Beauty with Benefits reflects QVC’s ongoing commitment to support the success and wellness of women through the power of relationships,” QVC U.S. CEO Claire Watts said in a canned statement. “We’re thrilled to bring the beauty industry together to give consumers the opportunity to shop for a cause on April 25, while increasing awareness of the resources provided by Cancer and Careers.”

Throughout the evening, viewers will be informed of the impact each purchase can make in the lives of men and women affected by cancer. Unique content created for the show is scheduled to include inspiring segments featuring those who benefited from Cancer and Careers along with an interview with CEW President Carlotta Jacobson.

Plus, industry experts and QVC regulars, including Laura Geller, founder of Laura Geller Beauty and Chaz Dean, creator of WEN Hair and Body Care, will share beauty tips guaranteed to make everyone look and feel good.

“I am so pleased to see CEW and QVC coming together for the first ever Beauty with Benefits show,” Geller said in her canned statement. “As a longtime supporter of Cancer and Careers, I have always believed that if beauty companies could join efforts to give back, we could make a significant impact. It not only feels good to educate women on how they can look better, but it feels even more empowering when you know you are personally helping to make a difference.”

To build further awareness for Cancer and Careers and the broadcast, QVC will optimize its social media efforts through an Instagram campaign.

For the first 500 photos tagged with the hashtag #beautywithbenefits, QVC will make a donation to Cancer and Careers. QVC plans to promote the event through additional platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.

Additionally, actress Regina King (love her in “Southland”) is supporting the initiative as the “QVC and CEW Present Beauty with Benefits” PSA spokesperson.

Host Lisa Mason, Totally Choking Up Twice, Bids QVC A Teary Farewell Tuesday

December 15, 2010

We almost started tearing up ourselves as we watched longtime QVC host Lisa Mason do her emotional final show — Diamonique, fittingly — on QVC Tuesday evening.

Mason also did the big reveal about her plans: She has written a book about God called “Big Life Lessons From That Still, Small Voice.” More on that later.

Ms. Mason got choked up and was literally speechless twice during her two-hour show: For a few moments when her fellow host, Jacque Gonzales, called in on-air to say goodbye, and when makeup vendor Laura Geller called in at the show’s finale.

Mason, clutching a tissue, couldn’t get a word out when Gonzales called in. There was a long silence until Mason composed herself and Gonzales spoke up.

“You are my mentor, and took me by the hand day by day and step by step,” Gonzales, tearful herself, told Mason.

Gonzales threatened to hop on a train to Manhattan and stalk Mason in her Upper East Side neighborhood.

“I love you,” Gonzales said.

“I love you too, sugar,” Southern belle Mason replied back.

Later on, Mason joked about her temporary loss of words. “Was it an awkward moment of silence?” she asked. Only if someone doesn’t have a heart, Lisa.

Then near the end of the show, Geller called in and Mason just put both her hands up on her face, covering her eyes, and didn’t say a word, she was so emotional. Geller spoke up and filled up the dead air, singing praise for Mason until the beloved host was able to speak.

“Stop crying, wipe those tears already,” Geller told her.

They apparently see a lot of each other, since Geller lives on 68th Street in the Big Apple and Mason and her husband Gino are on 76th.

“Girl, did you see I lost it?” Mason told fellow host Jane Treacy later in the show, referring to her emotional reaction when Geller called in.

Mason got weepy more than once, not just with Gonzales and Geller.

There were plenty of other call-ins, including former QVC host Kathy Levine, skin care vendor Dr. Adrienne Denese, makeup vendor Mally Roncal, designer Louis Dell’Olio, Affinity Diamond expert Michael O’Connor and Chaz Dean.

QVC also aired clips of QVC hosts Dan Wheeler, Jayne Brown and Leah Williams saying their goodbyes to Mason.

Mason, who joined QVC in 1995, also offered a bit of advice to viewers.

“Find a way to bring happiness to your life,” she said. Amen to that!

QVC did Mason a kindness by flashing the home page for her new website, lisamason.org. We tried to get on the site after the show, but it was down. Maybe it crashed from the traffic from her fans.

Finally, Mason briefly talked about her book.

“It’s a great book, it’s not about me,” she said. “But it’s called ‘Big Life Lessons From That Still, Small Voice.’ It is about God and it’s coming out end of February. I’ll let you know where. And I want you to be there with me when we launch it. And it really is about how important God is to me and always will be. That will never, never, never vary in my life.”

Then Treacy and Wheeler come on the air with Mason, Wheeler handed Mason a bouquet of roses, and Treacy brought out a big cake that said “Best Wishes: We Will Miss You.”

For astrology buffs, Mason is a Capricorn born Dec. 28, which is also her wedding anniversary with Gino.
