Mary Kay began in 1963 with 5 beauty products and has grown into a worldwide cosmetics craze. The company started by Mary Kay Ash has given women the opportunity to become independent businesswomen. The business model utilizes girls’ night parties where the sales rep sells her goods to a group of women that drank one too many cocktails. In more recent years, the brand has developed a reputation for being antiquated and appeals mostly to older women that have been using the product for the past several decades. So the question is, Are Mary Kay Cosmetics Still Good?
I felt the same way about Mary Kay products until recently when I received a bag full of samples. To be honest I almost threw the bag away. I had used a couple of their products in the past. And that was only because I had a co-worker that was selling it and I felt obligated to buy something.
After using a few of the samples I have changed my tune and have discovered a beauty line that I really do like to use. Here’s a peek at my stash. Go on and give it a try for yourself.
