Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about REBECCA

As some know (most don't), I am a beauty consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics (there's a link to my site on the side of this page). This week, I'm going to list 13 of my favorite Mary Kay products and, if anyone finds something they'd be interested in trying, let me know! :)

1. Time-Wise Miracle Set--this is probably the product I couldn't LIVE without. The 3-in-1 Cleanser cleanses, tones, and exfoliates, all at the same time. Then there's the day/night solutions. The day solution protects your skin from the harmful UVA/UVB rays (among other things) and the night solution firms and tones your skin while you sleep! Then, of course, there's the moisturizer--I can't say enough good things about this!

2. Microdermabrasion--I'm the queen of exfoliation! I can't get enough. This stuff is two steps, refine and replenish. The "replinish" step is the one that makes the MK set different from having microderm done at a dermatologist's office. It puts all the necessary elements back into your skin so you can put on your makeup directly after treatment.

3. Oil-Free Hydrating gel--gives skin that healthy "glow" without being greasy! LOVE IT!

4. Firming Eye Cream--the name says it all. You can feel this stuff firming your eye skin immediately after applying.

5. Satin Hands--I love to have soft hands. This three step set also has a light peachy smell, which is awesome.

6. Facial Highlighting Pen--looks almost like concealer, but it isn't. It actually brightens up the area under your eyes and practically erases signs of undereye circles. I need 10 of these!!

7. Time-Wise Visibly Fit body lotion--If anyone's interested, I have a before/after pic of this product. I slather this stuff on after I shave and I get virtually NO razor rash! Also helps with those icky spider veins!

8. Eye Primer--I didn't think I would like this stuff. But, I tried it and it really works. My eye makeup looks WAY more vibrant and stays on MUCH longer when I use the primer.

9. Eye Makeup Remover--I used to think I wasn't THAT picky about my eye makeup remover, until I left my Mary Kay at home once and had to use a different brand. It's oil-free so it's not greasy and it practically lifts the makeup off with NO rubbing!

10. Tinted Moisturizer--for those Saturdays when you're running to the store and don't want to put full makeup on, but don't want to look pale and washed out either. It's a moisturizer with just a light color to it. Just enough to even out your skin, but not enough to be heavy.

11. Medium Coverage Foundation--speaking of "heavy", I hate foundations that make you feel all slimy and gross. The MK foundations don't do that. It hardly feels like you're wearing any foundation at all. And it doesn't transfer once it dries, which is great on the clothes!

12. Dual-Coverage Foundation--I use mine as a pressed powder, but, since it's also considered a foundation, you can wear it alone and have a sheer coverage.

13. Ultimate Mascara--a lot of your other brands have a mascara that lengthens, another one that volumizes, and another one they call "waterproof", etc. Mary Kay has put all of those elements into ONE mascara. This is another one I didn't realize I was picky about until I used it for awhile and then had to use another brand when I left mine at home! It's amazing!

There's a debate raging at Is Mary Kay a cult?

Your input is invited as you seem to have experience and perspective in this area. Thanks.
