Introducing: Mary Kay in Singapore ft (TimeWise Plus+ Skincare)

On November 22, 2012 by Michelle Ng

Hi all!

 

Many of you may not have heard of this brand – Mary Kay. I have actually gotten to know about this brand from review sites such as MakeupAlley and Beautypedia, both from USA. Some time back, I was invited to a blogger session about Mary Kay at Cafe de Jardin (Beach Road).

Mary Kay is one of the world’s largest direct selling companies with more than $2.5 billion in annual wholesale sales worldwide. Mary Kay was founded in 1963 by Mary Kay Ash with the goal of helping women achieve personal growth and financial success. Mary Kay remains committed to enriching women’s lives, and today more than 2 million people of all backgrounds are enjoying the advantages of being Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants. Mary Kay’s high-quality skin care and color cosmetics products are sold in more than 35 countries around the world. To learn more about Mary Kay, visit www.marykay.com or www.marykay.com.sg.

Do you know? Mary Kay does not have a standalone store in Singapore, even in the USA. What they have are beauty consultants that sort of freelance and provide a service for you at the comfort of your own home, office or even outside. All you have to do is to give them a ring! Want to know more about their products, they have a website listing our all their products and prices.

More than 2 million people sell Mary Kay® products worldwide. With flexible hours and an open-ended opportunity for success, a Mary Kay business has proven to be an ideal choice for individuals of all backgrounds. Members of the Mary Kay independent sales force are in business for themselves, set their own schedules, build their own customer bases and determine their own level of success. The leaders in the independent sales force are Mary Kay Independent National Sales Directors and Mary Kay Independent Sales Directors.

Through their direct selling business strategy, their earn their sales from word of mouth. You can see there are barely any advertisement seen on media etc. They believe that with the word of mouth from family and friends, it truly shows how good their products are.

I am very impressed with their philosophy of selling. It is definitely not easy to sell based on recommendations by family and friends. But hey, they sell because their products works and not through crazy marketing that some brands do. So kudos to Mary Kay!

The event was held at Cafe de Jardin at Shower Tower (Beach Road).

They are best known for their duck sandwich, and I can see why! Juicy and succulent.

Now onto the Mary Kay products!

Eye Intrigue Color Quad that contains four shades from neutrals to pinks to a deep tone of red.

Swatches:

Mary Kay bold shine lip color in Poised Pink

Swatches:

This feels like a liquid lipstick to me. Pigmented and if i may say so, works on all skintone!

Here it is on my lips. The shade is very much “my lips but better” shade. Very natural.

Mary Kay® Gel Eyeliner With Expandable Brush in Tempting Teal and Jet Black.

Swatches:

Mary Kay’s new cologne for men,  True Original™ Cologne Spray as seen below.

This is a fresh and clean scent for men. I feel like spraying this on myself too because this is very different for the usual heavy musky cologne.

  • Top notes: Lemon and Fuji apple
  • Middle notes: Amber and cedarwood
  • Bottom note: Patchouli

Need something for your delicate hands? They have the Peach Satin Hands hand cream, scrub and softener.

This hand pampering set is awesome! I cannot praise the scent enough. The peach scent reminds me of gummy bears! This is great as a gift too as they are sold in a set. Highly recommended. It makes my hands feel very soft after giving it a try.

The Regena-Firm™ Complex contains:
