Re-discovering MARY KAY!!!

Beautifuls, I’m excited to say that I found a renewed love for Mary Kay.¬† Its been about two years since I’ve used or purchased Mary Kay cosmetics.¬† It wasn’t because I didn’t like the products I used…One day I said to myself “self if you can purchase Mary Kay, then you can afford MAC”¬† and that’s what happen I “upgraded” to MAC and slowly but surely other high end brands like Lanc√īme`, It Cosmetics, Becca to name a few.¬† While of course discovering more and more drug store brands.

Several months ago¬†an old Co-worker was like “Jackie I know you like makeup…my wife sells Mary Kay.¬† Let her do a facial with you”.¬† Needless to say I never took the opportunity to meet with her until the other day.¬† I was hesitant on setting up this appointment because for¬†1. I stopped using Mary Kay and 2. I was on a no¬†makeup buy.¬†¬†So I figured I would go¬†knowing I wouldn’t¬†purchased anything…LIES!!!¬†¬†I did the facial ( cleanse, moisture, prime) those products were great as well.¬† Then Brenda introduced¬†me to cream to powder foundation.¬†¬†I love the fact the color match is perfect.¬† I can¬†barley tell I have the foundation on.¬† With the choice of eye colors, mascara and lippie I feel in love with Mary Kay all over again.¬† For more product details refer to the picture below.
