…Because you may well end up being your own Number One Customer…Well, if you’re anything like me.
Here’s my personal experience of being a Younique presenter and sponsor of late…
I have discovered that Younique products are the makeup equivalent of coffee or for me as a non-coffee drinker, chocolate! (i.e. Totally addictive!!)
Less than six months in, I now have just about all the Younique products that we sell, I think.
Not all colours and shades, but all the products, brushes etc. (PS: My favourite products are here!)
It’s not that cheap to get them all, let me tell you, but I have been strategic in my purchases and the Younique makeup collections are a great way to go!
My Past Week in Younique
Each week (or so), I do a blog called “My Week in Younique”. The MWY blogs started here and has grown on a weekly basis – documenting my experiences of being a Younique Presenter and Sponsor of a global team,…but this post today is a little different,…It’s about my feeding what, for all intents and purposes, I’d classify is a Younique addiction!
Love Buying Younique Products!
Danger danger! As February ended, all I want to do is shop on my own website. Again. So last weekend, because the sale price of the Moodstruck Mineral Pigment set of 4 (update now called Moodstruck Pressed Shadow Refills) – was going back up to its original price (after a catalog misprint last time), I had to buy them.
No, really, I did have to.
Also, even though I already had the makeup, I wanted the cute pink glam bag in the Love it Bundle that was only available during February, well, I had to buy that too.At least I wasn’t the only one who grabbed that cute offer… Younique mailed the other day us to say we sold:
“61,448 of them! That’s more than 2,000 a day…100 per hour…more than a bundle a minute, all month long!”
Fast forward to March. As it kicked off, as you may know, we came out with six new products, and as I didn’t have them, I had to buy them too. Rather aptly named, I purchased the Kid in the Candy Store Collection (no longer available but other Younique collections are always found here:)
- 1 Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stain
- 1 Splurge Cream Eye Shadow
- 1 Beachfront Bronzer
- 1 Blending Buds
- 1 Cream Shadow Brush
- 1 Shine Eye Makeup Remover Cloths
- 1 Younique makeup bag
Do you see how being a Younique Presenter might be a challenge? As most of my friends will attest, I’ve never been a big “makeupy sort person” before joining Younique. (Frankly some old college friends at a New Year’s Eve party shared their absolute “shock” of my new venture because it was so “left field”.) Since joining Younique though. I admit, it’s become a total obsession! I guess as far as addictions go, it’s not a terrible one to have, but still…it’s an addiction none the less.
Yes the makeup’s great, and I genuinely love running my own Younique business, but it does sort of defeat the purpose when you’re running your own business, and seemingly all the money you’re making, you’re just investing back in your own company (e.g makeup collection). Or feeding your addiction! That’ what it feels like I am doing…at times!
My Younique Rationale?
Naturally, addictions aside, if you are going to run a business efficiently, you need to be knowledgable about all the products.
You have to be able to have them, show them, talk about the and, in this business, photograph them (sometimes even on yourself) so it’s pretty easy to rationalize all my makeup purchases each month.
BONUS? The fact that it’s a legitimate tax write-off only adds to the pure joy of running my Younique company. But if you’re a total makeup addict already, this is definitely not going to cure you of your addiction. In fact, you’re probably going to be even more guilty than me of being your own top customer…and hey, if that does describe you, then I’d love for you to #jointheAteam now! 😉
In summary, jokey blog title aside, I have no regrets at all joining Younique so far. Remember, there are much worse addictions out there, so you may as well join me now and have some healthy, empowering fun playing with, and promoting, makeup across the globe! Right? Right!
