I went a little Mary-Kay happy this summer by trying some of their skincare products.
I have a friend that lives in Jasper, AL that just recently became a Rep for them.

Can I just do a quick shout out for women starting a home based business?! I think it's such
a great thing! Gives women the opportunity to have income, flexibility, and for those
that are mommies the ability to stay at home! Of course not everyone that sells Mary-Kay or
any other home based business are stay at home moms... for some this is extra income to
make ends meet, but regardless of the circumstance I think it's great and I
encourage you all to support women doing this!

If you have resources and funds to help someone out that is starting a new business...
DO IT!! It's hard work and they could use your help! Ok. End of spiel.

If your like me I have never been super interested in Mary-Kay products. They kind of
have this stereotype of being dated, uncool, and un-accessible. You don't read or see
a ton of Editorial write ups about their products and you don't see all the latest celebrities
promoting their stuff. BUT, that doesn't mean they don't have great products. Mary-Kay
has really done a lot to rebrand and repackage. I must say... they have come a LONG
way in their packaging. It looks great.

So, the products I have bought and am currently using are as follows:
TimeWise Eye Firming Cream (Best-seller)
TimeWise Matte Wear Liquid Foundation (spring 2011 award for O Magazine)
TimeWise Even Complexion Mask
Oil Free Eye Make Up Remover (Best-seller)
TimeWise 3 in 1 cleanser (Best-seller)
TimeWise Age Fighting Moisturizer (Best-seller)

The products I have been most impressed with so far are the matte wear foundation,
even complexion mask, and eye firming cream. My eyes can be somewhat sensitive
after removing make up and I have been so impressed that the eye cream does not burn
at all when applying after removing eye make up. The foundation is great! It gives a little
more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, but with more oil control.

I'm not as impressed with Eye Make-up remover as I was hoping I would be. I had heard
great things about it and it's good don't get me wrong, but I feel like the cheap over the
counter stuff works just as good. I have been using the Neutrogena stuff for long time and

So, there you have my two cents about Mary Kay. If you know someone in your area that is a Rep try out some of their stuff and help them at the same time! If you don't know anyone
I will be more than happy to refer you to someone who can help!

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
