Red, passionate lips!

Red, passionate lips!

The New Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss loves your lips with feel good benefits, serious shine and gorgeous new colors you can’t be without.  There are 14 new shades to choose from.  The names are just as fun and sultry as the lip glosses themselves from Mango Tango to Red Passion (shown here).

Some ingredients that are beneficial to keeping lips moist, protected and conditioned are:

  • Pomegranate Sterol – helps strengthen the skin barrier, which is essential for maintain lip hydration.
  • Antioxidant-Rich-Complex – formulated with Vitamin E which is good for skin conditioning and soothing & Vitamin C derivatives that targets collagen production to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Aloe Leaf Extract – helps soften and calm skin.

Mary Kay conducted studies on the New formulated lip gloss and 9 out of 10 women agreed that it delivered an instant boost of moisture.

Personally, I love lip gloss and usually wear it over lipstick for the polished look and shine.  I’ve noticed while conducting skin care classes that when women put lip gloss on over their lipstick – it adds a glow to their face and helps them look more youthful and vibrant.

Your Lips Say It All

Pinks
The woman who treasures a pink lip shade possesses a beauty that never goes out of style. Classy and feminine, she’s the measure of a true lady. But don’t be surprised to discover a fun, flirty side winking beneath the pink.

Metals
A metallic lip luster is the perfect shade for a girl on the cutting edge of fashion. She knows how to add that extra something to make any outfit go from simple to amazing. And when it comes to the next new thing, you can bet she’s already there.

Berries
You’ll find shades of berry on the lips of a woman living life to the fullest. She’s energetic, enthusiastic and walks into a room with confidence. It’s no wonder she’s drawn to a lip shade as lively as the life she’s leading.

Neutrals
Don’t be fooled by demure lips in neutrals. When it comes to expressing her style, this woman knows how to make a bold statement. Spend an afternoon with her, and you’ll learn to expect the delightfully unexpected.

Chocolates
Generous and giving, the woman with a loving heart can’t resist a lipstick in a warm chocolate shade. She exudes genuine affection. She’ll make you feel fabulous. And of course, she’s as sweet as candy.

Tawnies
For the sophisticated woman, tawnies are the lip shade of choice. Gifted with impeccable taste, she appreciates the fine things in life from beautiful art to artisan coffee. When it comes to perfecting her pucker, only a shade of tawny will do.

Reds
She’s confident and sophisticated. She’s glamorous, trendy and classic all at the same time. She’s true to the end, and her beauty spans a lifetime. What more can we say about the woman in red?

Something for Everyone!

This past Summer I flew to Dallas, Texas to attend the Mary Kay seminar.  It was an event that changed my life.  I met women who were, like me, just starting out in Mary Kay,  others who were enjoying just being a part of something (aka girlfriend time) and those who wanted it all and developed a career in Mary Kay.  I realized that in Mary Kay there is something for everyone!

I initially joined Mary Kay, because I liked the products and saw the business as a way of meeting new people and helping women.  Since having attended seminar and being more involved in Mary Kay and actively working as a beauty consultant my commitment and passion for growing my business has developed to a greater level.

During the past months while working my Mary Kay business, I have developed friendships and have grown as a person.  I have learned skills for overcoming personal objections from the mean girl aka Negative Nellie who lives in my mind and says things like, “You can’t do this,” “You’re not good enough,” etc.  I’ve learned productivity skills such as creating goals, tracking my progress, keeping focus and being consistent.  I’ve learned how to manage a business and to sell the products that I’m offering, which is invaluable because whether it is Mary Kay or another business – I have learned the art of selling, money management and running a business.  The best of all is that I’ve learned to be positive and to believe in myself, which has inspired me to dream big and set attainable goals.

All that I’ve learned as a Mary Kay beauty consultant has been passed onto my children who are now at ages that they are starting their independent journey in life.  I’ve taught them skills to be successful both personally and professionally.

There is a saying in Mary Kay, “God first, Family second, and Career third.”  When I first heard it, I did not understand what it meant, but have since learned that is about creating balance in one’s life.  Imagine having a business that you can work around your family’s schedule with the faith in God that you are going to be successful in supporting yourself and your family.

While at seminar, I saw how Mary Kay rewards and recognitions its sales force.  There are a variety of cars offered, including a Pink Cadillac, world-class travel to places like Hawaii, Paris, Italy, and jewelry.  The most exciting is that women are recognized for their efforts of working to grow their business.   I couldn’t help but take a picture in the Pink Cadillac.

Whether it is cosmetics, candles, jewelry, pots and pans or plastic bowls, when you buy from someone who is in direct sales you are supporting a small local business.  You will most likely get better prices on the products that you buy as those direct sellers are interested in keeping you as a customer and will generally work with you and your budget.
