Almost 11 years after I witnessed the launch of Mary Kay in the Philippines in 2000, I was able to attend the introduction launch of their newest Timewise skin care line additions – TimeWise® Moisture Renewing™ Gel Mask and the TimeWise® Liquid Foundations last Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at Makati Shangri-la Hotel.
Admittedly, even as I came home with me that May 2000 night with a bag full of Mary Kay products, it was only my mother and sister who were totally into them. Fresh out of college, foundations and all other makeup stuff (save for their creamy lipsticks that I loooove) don’t really have that much appeal to me back then. Eleven years after, I have a total change of heart. Given that all skin (including mine) will go towards the inevitable – maturity, I really would rather slow it down if I can at all help it. That is probably what the norm is these days anyway.
Anti-Aging stuff in the market is the new rockstar, if you still haven’t noticed. We can see it in practically 4 of probably every 5 beauty product launches. But how do we figure out the best, right? By trying, that’s how. I love how I get invited to try these things out for myself through these launches. I just started using Mary Kay’s Moisture Renewing Gel Mask last Wednesday and the Matte-Wear Foundation last Thursday. I will surely let you know how both will fare in a month or two.
