A member sent me a flier that she received from her director showing all the “gift sets” and holiday products from Mary Kay.
It wouldn’t be a Mary Kay holiday season without a gold shimmery product. You’ll find a shimmer powder and a lip gloss to fit this bill.
Besides the limited-edition products, this guide highlights “sets” of the regular line products. Everyone knows that the teen on your gift list would be crazy about getting the Eye Care set, which consists of a MK eye makeup remover and an Ultimate mascara (sarcasm alert). But you’d be crazy to spend $29 for just two mediocre cosmetic products. Drugstore copies or equals of these exist for a fraction of the price.
The prices on these products really struck me. I guess it just hit me all over again. Ten dollars for men’s shaving cream? That means the consultant is paying five dollars. I can buy lots of great shaving cream for a buck or two. The MK hand cream was always one of my favorites, but eight dollars is more than I want to spend for soft hands. The body lotions and cleansers, especially, seem ridiculously high.
But hey! We all know MK products are so superior to other brands that they are worth the extra money. Right?
