As I told you all in my last post, I have become an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics. I have always held Mary Kay as a Company in high regard, due to their reputation as an excellent company for both makeup and skin care. While researching and trying to make a decision, I learned quite a lot about Mary Kay that I did not know.
I was aware that Mary Kay was founded by a woman – Mary Kay Ash. I did not realize that the company had been founded all the way back in 1963 – the year I was born. Mary Kay Ash was way ahead of her time. She changed the world of business by creating more opportunities for women, empowering women to do all that they could, and lived by the motto of “God first, family second and career third.” She was a woman of amazing integrity.
My own personal experience with Mary Kay started in the early 1980s, when my cousin had an at-home party. I was just out of High School, and while I absolutely loved the products – at that age and with the limited income of my first full-time job, I told myself that the reason they were SO good was because of the extra time we took in applying the products. I do think this was partly true, but as an older and more experienced person – I truly understand that MOST of the difference was in the products themselves. Mary Kay was in fact THAT good.
Mary Kay products are not cheap, yet they are not expensive. You might pay more than in a drugstore, big-box store, but you won’t pay as much as you would in an expensive “mall type” store. Mary Kay will never disappoint. This much I know!
I also learned that Mary Kay is a very socially conscious company. They have what is known as Pink Doing Green. This highlights different programs that the company is involved with, including recycling, planting trees, implementing bio-degradable packaging as well as using renewable energy and sustainable packaging. Mary Kay also makes donations to and has commitments with organizations helping women, from domestic violence to health concerns affecting females and issues with Covid-19.
So, besides amazing Skin Care and Makeup – which I will cover in a coming post -Mary Kay is a pretty great company. A company that I am very proud to be associated with.
