Confessions from a Skeptic

05-30-2013 7:20 AM

Before I begin, let me be very clear. I LOVE Mary Kay products!  I am a walking, talking advocate of the brand.  I proudly wore Mary Kay products long before I began to work here 9 years ago.  My makeup bag is Mary Kay exclusive.  And if you read my last blog post about spring cleaning your makeup bag, then you know I’m very particular about what makes the cut for my makeup bag.

Even with my love of Mary Kay, I paused when we were launching a sheer translucent loose powder that was supposed to work on all skin tones.  I have to admit that I was a skeptic.  A powder that worked on all complexions.  Come on. Really?

For years, I’ve enjoyed Mary Kay Loose Powder in Bronze 2.  Having worked here and been close enough to the product, I understand that a loose powder doesn’t really impart color. It’s designed as a finishing touch to go over foundation to help eliminate shine so my makeup looks fresh all day.  Regardless, there was still something unsettling about applying a bright white loose powder to my brown skin.

But, Mary Kay proved me wrong.  I tried the new Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder and, in this case, one size does fit all. Yes, my fellow skeptics, it worked amazingly well.  Even my sister Paula, a Mary Kay loose powder Bronze 2 addict and a fellow white loose powder skeptic, LOVED the new product.

A couple of strokes with her Mary Kay Powder Brush and she was completely sold. This is a big step in my family because it took years of me wearing the products to show them that Mary Kay has a plethora of beautiful shades that look amazing on brown skin and all complexions. Gone are the days when some of my family members believed that Mary Kay products weren’t for them.    

I feel blessed to be associated with a brand that delivers the very best products for all women.  That’s one of the many reasons why I love my Mary Kay!  What about you?   Tell me why you love your Mary Kay?
