GRL PWR: Mary Kay International Women’s Day items

To all the ladies out there, happy International Women’s Day!

To be a woman in today’s day and age is truly a blessing.  Females have come a long way and can pretty much do anything and everything that a man can.  I am a proud female and love hyping up my fellow women as there are so many inspirational females out there doing amazing things.

I’ve chatted about Mary Kay Ash during previous International Women’s Days and she is truly someone who I admire for what she has been able to do not only in business, but for other women.

After experiencing inequality in the workplace, Ash launched her business in 1963 and disrupted the idea of “business as usual”, turning the male-dominated workplace upside down. The cosmetic pioneer dedicated her life to empowering women and putting them in control of their own futures, and her company is now operating in over 40 countries worldwide.

In celebration of International Women’s Day this year, the beauty brand has released three products to celebrate women, as well as to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation. Their charitable foundation supports both Look Good Feel Better, which supports women living with breast cancer, as well as charities that help end domestic violence by providing grants to women’s shelters and community outreach programs.

Mary Kay Wings of Hope Bracelet Set and Hope Soars Scarf First up, is the Hope Soars Scarf (C$19.50), which is a limited-edition pink scarf that inspires women to fly high and achieve their dreams.  This scarf, when opened up, features a wings detail in a fuchsia colour that blends wonderfully with the baby pink in the rest of the scarf.

The scarf is 100 per cent polyester and will be the perfect accessory for spring. Best part is that 100 per cent of the proceeds support the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation, so not only do you get a beautiful scarf, but you are also giving to a great cause when you purchase it.

Another item where 100 per cent of the proceeds go to their charitable foundation is the Wings of Hope bracelet set (C$18.99).  This stainless-steel silver bracelet set includes a beaded bracelet paired with one that features a wings motif filled with zirconia stones.  These two are really pretty paired together or by themselves.

This set is in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation, and at under $20 it’s a really great gift for a special female in your life.

Limited edition Mary Kay Lip Kit for International Women's Day

Now the item I am most excited about today is their two limited-edition lip kits.  I actually posted about these lip kits on an IG Reel last week (click here to check it out) and I am so obsessed with the colours they chose.

These lip kits (C$32) are available in both a beautiful fuchsia pink and a pinky-nude shade. Each lip kit comes with a lip liner and a creamy lipstick.  The lip liner is a creamy formula which you twist up to dispense the product (no sharpener needed) and the lipstick pairs perfectly with it to give you amazing colour payoff and show-stopping lips.

I love the two shades they chose and honestly it’s tough picking a favourite.  I love the nude since it’s so wearable, but the pink is really bold and will be so perfect for the spring weather up ahead. If you are thinking of grabbing one, don’t wait since they are limited edition and are expected to sell out.
