Hello Gorgeous, today, is a very important day, it's set aside as the National Day of Prayer. Wikipedia says this about it: The National Day of Prayer (36 U.S.C. § 119) is an annual day of observance, designated by the United States Congress, when people are asked "to turn to God in prayer and meditation". The law formalizing its annual observance was enacted in 1952.
So, for our nation, I encourage you to take a moment and pray today for the nation, your state, your city and the leaders in government. While you are at it, throw in some other prayers for good measure. If you need help praying this through, email me. I'll help you out!
Now, when you are through praying, read below. This is the most intriguing and interesting bit of information I've seen lately about the statistics of women and makeup and buying trends. It even comes with a nifty chart and we have the folks at Market Force to thank for it. So, thank you Market Force.
As you get ready to read the tidbits below, remember that there is just one day left to get in on the Mother's Day giveaway...and a mere 7 days left til my birthday...I'm actually thinking of putting up my "wish list" on the blog...still thinking about it because you know the Word of God says " you have not because you ask not" so I am planning on asking. (*wink*)
Cover Girl is Favorite Makeup, According to Market Force Consumer Survey Beauty study by customer intelligence company reveals the cosmetic brands consumers prefer most
BOULDER, Colo., May 3, 2010 — Cover Girl is consumers’ favorite cosmetics brand, according to a Beauty survey conducted by Market Force Information, a worldwide leader in customer intelligence and customer experience management solutions.
The survey examined which cosmetic brands are most popular among consumers and why, as well as their favorite places to shop for cosmetics. It was conducted last month among Market Force’s network of 300,000 independent mystery shoppers and merchandisers – consumers across the country dubbed The Force™. More than 5,000 consumers responded.
Cover Girl dominates among cosmetic brands
Seventy percent of the survey respondents said they wear cosmetics. Out of 60 cosmetic brands, Cover Girl was cited by 14 percent as their favorite, placing it on top. Clinique was second on the list with 10 percent of the mentions, and Maybelline (L’Oreal) and Mary Kay tied for third with 8 percent each. See Graph 1.
Graph 1: Favorite Makeup Brand
Brand trust is greatest influencer in makeup selections
When the consumers were asked what they loved most about their favorite makeup line, they chose brand trust over all of the other factors – the actual product attributes mattered much less. More than two thirds said they love their makeup because they trust the brand, while only one third cited loving it “because it feels wonderful.” Factors like uses humane testing/is environmentally safe were not weighted strongly and emerged toward the bottom of the list.
Now does that report mirror what or how you buy cosmetics? As I was reading it and checking in on what's going to be aired this week on Oprah I came across this blurb on her website "Four brothers were found living in hell...nealy starved to death by their parents. Find out what really happened. Then, a tumor destroyed half her face. Now, she is ready to face the world.".
You know I read that and thought, 'grace grace God, I will pray for my nation, for the great state of Arizona and for all the children who aren't being parented by the Word of God and by the leading of Jesus because He taught love and anyone who is starving their children most likely never experienced love themselves'. Phew, it's going to be a great day of prayer!
Enjoy the giveaways and get ready, there is more to come!
