I’ve got a number of exciting posts this week! A guest post is coming up tomorrow from a regular reader and a collaborative promotion with a big name is coming up sometime middle of the week too. So stay tuned at Viva Woman! But first, I just learnt that Mary Kay, one of the largest direct sellers of skin care and cosmetics in the world, is launching their range of more than 190 products in Singapore this month.
Direct selling by independent beauty consultants
I’m attending their media event next week to find out more but judging from the media releases, it looks like the products will still be sold very much the way they are sold in the US – by independent beauty consultants. In fact, they are organizing a business opportunity event this Thursday on 5 Mar from 7.00pm – 9.30pm at Ritz Carlton Hotel. Guests speakers include Mona Butters, National Sales Director of Mary Kay USA and General Manager of Mary Kay South East Asia, Mike Strong. Admission is free and limited only to 200 members of the public. If anyone reading this is interested to sign up, just call 65-62266888.
Popular products reviewed at Makeupalley
However, I hope that the company will also make their products available at some stores because I know some women aren’t that keen to purchase from direct representatives. And it’ll be a shame because I ran a quick check at Makeupalley and found that Mary Kay has a number of products that are rather popular and well reviewed by the gals such as their makeup remover, eye shadows, Micro-dermabrasion, Satin Hands, Satin Lips Mask and Balm which received average ratings of over 4 out of 5.
Perhaps those who have tried using their products can share your experience and your favorites?
