Many people simply think of makeup when they hear Mary Kay®.  However, Mary Kay® offers much more than just quality makeup.  They offer innovative skin care lines like Timewise® which has been clinically proven to offer age-defying benefits, basic skin care products and even a new botanical based skin care line and mineral makeup line.  They also offer top of line fragrances, bath products and sun care for men and women.

Mary Kay ReviewMary Kay® was founded nearly 50 years ago by Mary Kay Ash who desired to help women achieve success and inspire them to do great things.  Mary Kay® has since grown into one of the largest global direct sellers of skin care & beauty products.

To celebrate reaching that milestone, Mary Kay® has released a special edition Dance to Life™ Eau de Parfum. It is designed “for the woman who dances with every beat of her heart”.   This would be the perfect gift for any mom, grandmothers, sister, aunt or special friend that inspires you by how they live their life.

The Dance to Life™ perfume has become my favorite perfume, for every day activities to special nights out.  It is a soft floral scent with notes of apples, Rose de Mai, jasmine, magnolia, vanilla and warm amber.  I love the way it smells and have received so many compliments on my perfume since I began using it.

Mary Kay® also offers some great holiday gift sets & gift ideas. The Peach Satin Hands set would be great for any female in your life or you could create a custom gift set based on her favorite Mary Kay® products.  For the men in your life, the MKMen®’s line offers bath, body and skincare products and several colognes.

When you visit Mary Kay’s® website you can also find some great makeup and beauty tips & advice.  To really understand all the products and benefits that Mary Kay® offers you can schedule a Beauty Consultation or host a Beauty or Makeover Party.

Olivia started her Mary Kay business in 2011 after using the products for a few years.

The start up cost was minimal- only $100 for a starter kit valued at $600 and consultants make 50% commission on everything they sell.

  • I’d like the Mary Kay Lash Love mascara & eye liner because whenever I do my makeup it’s my eyes where I pay the most attention to. I love having curled eyelashes with black mascara and eyeliner, I don’t even wear foundation or lipstick but my eyes are always made up 🙂

  • Like the “TimeWise® Miracle Set” .. age-defying benefit in the set, oh yeah .. want to take this home, Thank you for the chance.

  • I like the Beauty That Counts® Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss, TimeWise® Miracle Set® and Mary Kay® Extra Emollient Night Cream 🙂

  • I really love the Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in peacock blue because it is just so pretty =},I also love the Mary Kay Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush because it would be nice to have a brush i don’t currently have.

  • 1. Oil Free eye makeup remover…always hardest to remove mascara so I don’t wake up with raccoon eyes!
    2. NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss because it is NOT sticky so my hair won’t stick to my lips and gives back $$!
    3. Dance to Life™ Eau de Parfum as it sounds like a fun and good-smelling perfume!

  • I’d like to try the Warm Amber products. They have all kinds of things like shower gel, lotion and perfume. I like to layer scents and this sounds like it smells really good.

  • I love the lipgloss, you can never have enough. I have at least 20different ones lol The eyeliner and the satin hands would be great too! What a great giveaway! Thank you 🙂

  • would love to try Mary Kay again. Was a long time ago when I remember mixing the eye shadow with water to put on. About 20 years ago. How about the TimeWise® Miracle Set® (normal/dry)

  • I like the Satin Lips Lip Balm! I think it will make my lips nice and smooth, and help protect it from the harsh winter air!

  • I would love to try the Mary Kay Exotic Passionfruit Eau de Toilette Body Lotion and the Mary Kay Exotic Passionfruit Eau de Toilette as I think the passionfruit would smell great and I would love it.

  • I would love to try the TimeWise Miracle Set because I could definitely use some help with skin care products and I would like to try the Mary Kay Eyeliner because it’s waterproof

    • Oh, and why! I like that MaryKay’s mascara doesn’t clump and that if you get it on your skin you can just easily flake it off. I like the timewise face wash because my face feels great after i use it with no tightness, dryness or oily-ness

  • I’d like to try the TimeWise® Night Solution, TimeWise® Targeted-Action® Eye Revitalizer and TimeWise® Moisture Renewing Gel Mask

  • Do i HAVE to pick a favorite? lol there’s so many to choose from! foundation, lip gloss, eye liner…ahh i love it all!

  • I’d like to try the Mary Kay® Foundation Primer Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15*. I have heard a primer really extends your foundation wear. I have never used one so I would like to try it.

  • I used to be a consultant for many years. There’s so much to love about MK that I am hard-pressed to pick one thing. Satin Hands is always a winner because it is just so luxurious. I can also say that the TImewise foundation is one of the few foundation that provide me an exact match without breaking the bank.

  • I’d like to try the creme lipstick in really red because I need a classic red shade of lipstick. I’d also like to try the concealer because I’m always looking for a great concealer.

  • The True Original™ Cologne Spray and the TimeWise® Age-Fighting Moisturizer (normal/dry).
    My son loves the cologne and I despretly need some aging cream!

  • Simply great. I just love the way you describe and represent you blogs. Thanks for sharing such a nice info. Well done. Very helpful must say.
