    Thumbs up An interesting experience..

    This past weekend i was in Chicago getting together with family. Day after Christmas, i was in one of the upscale malls with my sister. While my sister was browsing through the clothes, i was busy herding my sons and nephews in the handbag section, of course
    There was a very attractive lady next to me who was looking at some bags, and found it amusing when my little one kept offering to buy every handbag in sight for me

    She walked up to me and gave me her card. she is the senior marketing director for a major line of cosmetics ( i won't name it). She asked me if i would be willing to be their face model for a new line of mineral products I thought she was kidding, but she seemed serious so i gave her my phone number and forgot all about it.

    She called me yesterday, as soon as i got back home and spoke to me at length. Long story short, she is sending me a box of all their new line of products. she wants me to use them and then she said she would follow up with me and take it from there...

    I am pretty excited. the cosmetics i use generally are neutrogena and aveeno and they always come off a drugstore shelf and so far my skin is pretty good. I am looking forward to seeing what the products are.

    I had a lady walk up to me in a store once and ask me if I would like to try some products. Turned out she was a just Mary Kay rep that wanted me to come to her HOUSE... Ugh! No offense to any Mary Kay reps out there, but there are some pretty annoying ones around here.

    I think this is really cool Fedup! I would love it if a marketing person from a big cosmetics company approached me and offered me free products! When will you get to try them out?

    I know BrS. I was a bit skeptical too. But the lady did not ask me anything about coming to her place or buying anything She had her assistant mail a care package to me yesterday. I also checked her out on the company's directory and it is legit..
    I am going to have fun playing with make-up like a little girl

    LOL! Yeah, I would have been like "Wha? Who? Me?! Is there a hidden camera somewhere?". That is really awesome and I bet it felt pretty darn good too! I would be so flattered if someone thought I was face model material!

    Thank you Ladies

    I feel silly so i don't want to name any company.

    The biggest thing like BrS said, it felt really darn good . After over a decade of marriage and kids, a compliment like that is a definite confidence booster
    even if nothing pans out, the compliment and the cosmetics made me feel good, and that makes it worthwhile
