This has never happened before to me. I was at the mall and happened to see a woman applying a lip gloss that was simply gorgeous. It stopped me right there and because I knew I was staring too long, I had to say something. Well, the truth made it easy. I told her that her lip gloss was really pretty. She replied with a ‘oh, yea?’ and she took my sincere compliment seriously. I mentioned that I am a beauty blogger and just randomly notice pretty stuff. (Insert canned laughter) She showed me the tube, and I said it was nice, and told me it was Mary Kay. I was so surprised because I haven’t looked at Mary Kay products in a very long time. Then she told me she was a Mary Kay representative. Oh, no! I thought. What did I got myself into it? She started digging in her bag and I knew I was going to get to see all the new items MK has, ala brochure. But this nice woman, GAVE me a brand, new tube as a gift! She didn’t even give me a business card.
If I spent the time, I know durn-well I’d find a nail polish in my stash to match this. It’s an orange-ish red with red and magenta sparkles. So not in your face sparkly, though. Check further down and you’ll see.
A simple, random act of kindness. It, truly, made my day. And, after trying this out myself, I wish she would have given me a card. I would like to try other shades. I did some research and found that Mary Kay’s Nourishine Plus Lip Gloss comes in 14 shades and is $14. The anti-oxidants and botanical extracts keep the lips smooth and hydrated. It promises to be long-lasting and good at conditioning my lips.
I wore ‘Red Passion’ for the rest of the day…
‘Red Passion’ is smooth, really smooth. There’s not fragrance or taste. Only thing I didn’t care for was that it was somewhat sticky/tacky, at first. That causes me to want to rub my lips together too much. And, that has to look weird. Other than that, I like it!
Thank you, nice Mary Kay lady, wherever you are!
