Correction: June 2011 Issue of The Look

Please note that the June 2011 edition of The Look contains an error. The Look incorrectly names Sweet Cream as one of the shades included in the new regular-line Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color Bundle in Hypnotic Hazel (part no. 043864). The Hypnotic Hazel Mineral Eye Color Bundle contains the following three mineral eye color shades: Cinnabar, Hazelnut and Honey Spice; it does not include Sweet Cream. All online communications for the June 2011 quarter, such as the e-Catalog version of The Look, online Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color Bundle flyer, online shopping pages and MKeCards® all contain the correct shade information for the Hypnotic Hazel Mineral Eye Color Bundle.  

We sincerely apologize for this error and any confusion it may cause you or your customers. Thank you for your understanding and support.

Beauty Blotters® Updates

As you know, the price for Mary Kay® Beauty Blotters® Oil-Absorbing Tissues will increase to $6 from $5 effective March 16, 2010, because the product is being repackaged to reflect the new coated paperboard pop carton which supports Mary Kay’s Pink Doing Green® campaign. The new part number is 041758. Please note that you may start to see the updated packaging for Beauty Blotters® as early as mid to late February because we’ve sold through our existing inventory featuring our former Mary Kay packaging. However, the price increase will not take effect until March 16.

Managing Your Inventory
In preparation for the addition of these new products to the line in early 2011, we’ll make the following changes you’ll want to keep in mind:

  • Mary Kay® Medium-Coverage Foundation will continue to be offered; however, you can expect a $1 price increase in December 2010. Due to declining sales, this price increase is necessary to offset our production costs with increased cost of materials and a lower demand.
  • Due to low sales, Mary Kay® Full-Coverage Foundation will phase out in December 2010. The TimeWise® Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation is a great option to offer your normal to dry skin customers who are looking for a liquid foundation.

The new TimeWise® Liquid Foundations are a beautiful addition to the wardrobe of Mary Kay® foundations you can offer, with a variety of foundation types, finishes, shades and benefits to fit your customers’ needs and the look they desire.

As we approach the launch of these new foundations, you will want to check this site often for updates and tips to help you in guiding your customers to find their way to beauty with the perfect foundation.
