Simple Beauty in Under Four Minutes

About a year ago I started using an Aritstry Essentials Makeup Kit.

This is some excellent mineral makeup, but in addition to the quality and great price (half the price of the competition), what really sold me was the simplicty and ease of the kit.
Let's face it, a product can be excellent, but if it just sits there on your bathroom counter or in a drawer, what good is it?

I thought that I didn't have time to "put on my face" because I'm a mom of young kids. But the reality is that I've always lacked that "girly" gene. I am not one of those women who has 13 lipsticks. Just the thought of owning 13 lipsticks is enough to make my head spin.

I'm a simple gal who likes simple things. If I have too many choices in front of me I get paralyzed and refuse to participate at all. The only major choice I've had to make with the kits is deciding if I needed the light, medium, or dark. Very easy, very simple.

And the exciting part for me is that I've actually been using the makeup. It takes me three minutes and 53 seconds to apply everything I need. Having a nice, natural look has led to many compliments, which has led to a slight increase in my self-esteem.

Oh yes, I'm supposed to be spiritual and say that it's the inner beauty that counts. But come on, let's get real. I can have the glow of God, but there ain't nothing wrong with avoiding looking like I just rolled out of bed.

A kit includes: mineral foundation, concealer, color-quad for eyes and cheeks, lip shine, mascara, eye brush and face brush.

My Pastor says this, "If the barn needs painting, paint it!" :)

Seriously, as a guy, I've sold several of those kits just by giving gals that little sample postcard. It's an easy sell if they're looking for mineral makeup!

Sorry if this comment is showing up twice, I had a problem with my internet.

By the way I didn't mean to say Your barn needs painting, I hope you realize it was just a joke :)
