  • i used to use this cleansing mask and it was awesome! I forget the name of it, but I remember it was pink and you left it on for 5-10 minutes. My skin felt wonderful afterward.

  • I use to only wear MK for years. Love great with the serum you apply after. I have never really liked the foundations- they dry my skin out. The purple moisterizing gel is pretty good too. Mascara sucks.

  • Personally I would choose a higher quality product to sell. I dont think there are many women out there into mary kay anymore. I would choose a more crunchy granolla brand that you can believe in. the mary kay line just sounds 1950s and of low quality. This is perception... but it will be easier to sell a product if the perception of it is better.

  • I tried it. I wasn't impressed. I can buy Clinique at the counter in Macy's and even Merle Norman for about the same price. I felt that the cleansing products were a little too heavily perfumed for my allergies... The foundation wasn't heavy enough for my taste. The powders were okay. I don't really wear eye shadow, so I never saw a big need for that. They do not have the type of eyeliner that I like.

  • I used to sell Mary Kay. I love love love the satin care products. But I do have to say that the products are not as good as they used to be when Mary kay was still alive. I stopped selling because it was very overwhelming to have 2 full time jobs on top of having to just became too much work. It has been 5 years since I stopped selling so I am not familiar with their new products, but I did like them.
