Mary Kay Flexes Its Muscle…Car

The Ford Mustang is the newest addition to the Mary Kay career car fleet. The vehicles are available to the beauty company’s top sales directors.

• At its annual seminar, Mary Kay—best known for its coveted pink Cadillac—unveiled its newest ride: a black Ford Mustang. The new muscle car, which entered the stage from behind a thick curtain of smoke and dazzling pyrotechnics, has joined the iconic Cadillac as part of the fleet of Mary Kay career cars for top-performing independent sales directors.

“At Mary Kay, for nearly 50 years, we have conducted extensive design work as we develop on-trend, high-performing color cosmetics and skin care products that consumers want and need,” said Yvette Franco, vice president of US marketing.

She added, “We applied this same, deep-rooted commitment to searching for a new Mary Kay Career Car option for our independent beauty consultants that beautifully blends style and sport, with functionality and durability—as well as one more way to inspire the Mary Kay independent sales force on their road to success.”


Soap & Glory BacksBathing Beauty in Hamburg

Soap & Glory sponsored Die Badende, 10-day public art project in Hamburg.

• A popular respite, Inner Alster lake has earned the title of “the living room of Hamburg.” And it was the city’s special relationship with water that inspired Oliver Voss to create “Die Badende,” a 10-day public art project that British beauty brand Soap & Glory signed up to sponsor.

Soap & Glory founder Marcia Kilgore was thrilled by the concept. “We launched Soap & Glory in Germany last year, and we've been looking for a way to say, ‘thank you’ to everyone for embracing our products, and making us a real success there,” she said. “At Soap & Glory, we consider it our calling to bring more beauty to the world, and have fun doing it—Die Badende does exactly that—all, of course, in our signature demure, subtle and understated way.”
