On June 11, Mary Kay served as official sponsor of the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund’s annual Super Saturday event in Los Angeles. The Mary Kay  booth, which exuded southern California vibes with its colorful design was a must-visit for attendees.  What drove guests to make a beeline towards the Mary Kay booth? Six shades of NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss were displayed at the Mary Kay lip bar where guests were encouraged to test and take home their favorite shade.  Popular Santa Monica-based confectionary, Bon Puf, served corresponding flavors of cotton candy tying in the lip gloss theme throughout.  Guests were encouraged to participate in the flamingo ring toss game, where they could win a Discover What You Love makeup bag. Lastly, a gorgeous hot pink wall with Mary Kay branding served as the perfect spot for guests to take selfies with their cotton candy after stopping by the lip bar.  Actress Vanessa Lachey was among the attendees at the Mary Kay booth and photos of her later appeared in People, Hollywood Reporter and US Magazine. 

Mary Kay’s sponsorship benefitted the Ovarian Research Cancer Fund, which serves to better diagnose, treat and ultimately cure ovarian cancer.  Super Saturday, which is held annually in the Hamptons and Los Angeles, began in 1998 to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund after Harper’s Bazaar Editor in Chief Liz Tilberis was diagnosed with incurable ovarian cancer.  Her many friends in the beauty and fashion industry came together to put on this exclusive event to raise money to do more research on ovarian cancer, which is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women.  The Mary Kay brand publicity team knew Super Saturday was the right event for us to sponsor and support such an important cause to many women. Every year A-listers attend Super Saturday; for Mary Kay to not only be a part of it, but to be among the most in-demand booth there, was beyond exciting!
