Ready Set Jet: A "Beauty with Purpose" Brand that Brings New Meaning to the Word Multitasking

By Robin Tolkan-Doyle, Beauty Editor

It's pretty evident the world doesn't need another beauty brand. However, when there's a social impact behind the birth of a brand that demonstrates how beauty can be more than skin deep, that's beauty on another level entirely.

That's why I've been telling everyone I know about Ready Set Jet —a new “beauty with purpose” brand comprised of mix-n-match, multitasking skincare and makeup batons for women either on-the-go or at home who prefer a more Marie Kondo-minimalist approach when it comes to their product regime.

Here’s a quick rundown of the Beauty Baton Collection:

The Hydrate and Glow Baton has a skin Glowing, Exfoliation Scrub on one side and a Hydrating Face Balm on the other.

The Cleanse and Prime Baton pairs a purple-hued Blurring Primer with a trendy, eco-friendly waterless cleanser/ makeup remover.

The Sculpt and Shine Baton is a Contouring Complexion Stick on one end and a Pearlescent Highlighter on the opposite.

Highly pigmented multi-tasking Lip and Cheek Stain Sticks in berry and pink are available add-ons that can twist on to any existing baton as well.

All items are housed in minimal, reusable packaging and formulated with good-for-your skin antioxidant ingredients including Golden Seaweed and Marine Fennel.

Here’s where Ready Set Jet gets beauty entrepreneur and women’s empowerment advocate, Shalini Vadhera, created Ready Set Jet as a means to uplift underprivileged girls and women in the slums and villages of India.

Along with her 501c3 Power Beauty Living, Vadhera will use part of the products' proceeds to fund the Ready Set Jet Academy, a virtual and in person space in India that will give this marginalized demographic the tools to gain financial and professional freedom by becoming economic players in the beauty industry.

The students, most of whom consist of acid attack survivors, burn victims, widows, orphans, girls who have fallen into human trafficking and LBGT members, will learn job training and leadership skills, technology for educational and business advancement, and beauty certification to break their cycle of poverty. Upon completion of the academy, these girls and women will be able to start working as professional make-up artists in the wedding, spa and salon industries, or as entrepreneurs ready to start their own ventures. Considering most of this community is destined to a life of squalor and servitude, this will be a life-changing opportunity once the world opens up after the pandemic.
