Hi Lillybeth, I just thought I’d give you a little bit of feedback on the make-up I got from you. I am so thrilled with it all. It’s great to have a refreshed look and to be right into enjoying make-up again rather than it being a bit of a chore as it had become, and I’m keen to do a second session with you.
Just for your interest, I was using a fairly expensive make-up, Lancome’s Teint Idole, and I couldn’t tell the difference really between that and the Mary Kay so I decided to do half my face in one and half in the other and I truly could not pick any difference.
I have also done one eye with the expensive Lancome mascara and one with the Maybelline. I could have looked quite weird as you can imagine but it was a close call with the Maybelline slightly better!
I am delighted to have found such quality make-up for a much, much better price point. - Kate, Tauranga (Mini Makeup Lesson + Free personal shopping service)
Instead of being exclusive or blindly loyal to one beauty brand, I aim to use the cheapest of the most effective makeup products on the market, especially those that are accessible here in Tauranga, New Zealand.
A quick browse product ratings website Beautypedia.com will prove no beauty brand is failproof, regardless of price tag, prestige or celebrity endorsement! I've been using Beautypedia as a trusted resource for almost ten years and you should too! It can potentially save you thousands of dollars on disappointing products and time and energy spent trying all the different formulas.
Unlike consumer-review websites, Beautypedia reviews are created by a small dedicated team of researchers who work in the cosmetics industry and understand cosmetic formulations and what makes a product long-lasting, effective and safe. Most big brands sold on the US market are listed, but local NZ and Australian brands are not. Where not reviewed I use my own ingredient knowledge and experience to decide, along with consumer reviews online.
So from various brands I 'cherry pick' the best and leave the rest!
One of my favourite consumer brands is Mary Kay Cosmetics (MK). Much of the MK makeup performs superbly alongside the other professional and consumer makeup brands in my kit, and rates well on Beautypedia. Other products I rely on are carefully selected items from brands NYX, Yaby, Maybelline, Paula’s Choice, Bella Vi, Inika, ColourPop, to name a few.
Ask me to make personal recommendations for you from the products and brands in my kit, or Mary Kay Cosmetics. Because Mary Kay is not sold through retail stores, I give you access to MK through my business account, and can also pre-register you (if you don't already have an consultant) so it's easy for you to shop online via MK's 'beauty direct' system yourself.
If the product in my kit you want to purchase is not available in NZ stores, you can access them through me or I'll tell you how to purchase online for yourself. I avoid overpriced products, so you’ll only get honest recommendations for products that are effective AND sanely-priced.
OPTION 1 - Through the MK website:
Shop on my Mary Kay website at www.marykay.co.nz/lillybeth (click image above)
Shipping is $10 NZ-wide and if you need help or want a personal recommendation, they've made it very easy to contact me through the website.
OPTION 2 - In person through Lillybeth:
Order in person with me, on the phone, by email or use the contact form on this website. You'll make pay by internet banking with the account details provided on the ‘contact’ page, or with credit card details (VISA/Mastercard). I'll then add your requests into her next order and post them out when it arrives.
Ordering this way means shipping is cheaper ($3.95) but you may have to wait until I personally place an order. I'll inform you if this is the case.
By ordering directly with me you're not limited to MK; you can also receive honest recommendations for other branded items in my kit.
Try before you buy in Tauranga
If you’re in Tauranga, New Zealand, you have the opportunity to ‘try before you buy’ as I offer free 30 minute appointments for you to test and sample the products fomr my kit in real life before ordering. You can also choose to host a small gathering/party in your home with a few friends to find out if Mary Kay can give you the look you want. This isn't something I 'push' but is a policy of Mary Kay Cosmetics that their consultants offer free, personalised service and group parties. If you're keen to host some girlfriends for a fun appointment, I'll happily oblige. Or ask to experience MK in your paid makeup lesson or makeover. Then place your order. Easy!
I'm all about unbiased beauty advice and we proudly have a ‘no purchase required’ policy at our paid bookings, but women often ask where they can purchase Mary Kay Cosmetics and the other items from my kit after experiencing them in their makeover or lesson.
