You Get Out of Mary Kay What You Put In!

From a Pink Truth critic:

If you spent as much time and effort in your own business rather than running down Mary Kay you may find yourself as successful as the many thousands of women who do direct sell Mary Kay products. The company has changed my life and many other womens lives I know. I support my husband, 2 children and pay off a mortagage all through my business.

Why have I been so successful, because I believed in myself, and the products. I find many of your comments are obviously coming from bad experiences resulting from no self discipline, effort and time that is required to successfully manage your own business. Mary Kay do not suck people in, you are all criticising something you really dont seem to know alot about. With any Independent business you get out of it what you put in. Maybe you should look at yourself rather than the company!!??


Hello Mary Kay Directors Who Saw 20/20

Written by Suzy Q

So, we taped hours and hours of painful, humiliating, humbling information about our experiences in Mary Kay, and ABC diluted it down to about 12 minutes. However, it made an impact and I was pleased to know that. It is not often that Darrell Overcash interrupts his Saturday to contact the directors.

This is for you, my sister directors. I left Mary Kay Cosmetics several years ago after a non-stellar run in massive debt. I peaked in 2003 or 2004, I can’t remember… and before all of the “I am quitting drama”, I started reading Mary Kay Sucks (the original name of Pink Truth) and I was totally devastated. I had never before heard or read anything remotely negative about MK. I couldn’t believe people were actually posting negative information— it was the first time I heard the term “frontloading.”

I told everyone I would bleed pink if it was required, and thought of myself as a lifer. I would never ever leave Mary Kay. I had given up a career, let my professional credentials lapse, and my only goal was to be the woman Mary Kay wanted me to be. I remember the call from corporate telling me about her death and I burst into tears. Continue Reading →


Mary Kay on the 20/20 “Not So Pretty In Pink” Story

little pink liesMary Kay Cosmetics was hoping that ABC’s 20/20 would share their version of the story: that lots of products are sold, lots of money is made, and Mary Kay enriches women’s lives. Unfortunately for them, Rebecca Jarvis dug into the other side... the ugly truth about Mary Kay. The company runs an elaborate scam that takes hundreds of millions of dollars out of households each year, while enriching a very small minority of participants.

The sad truth is that more than 99% of people involved with multi-level marketing will lose money. It is nearly impossible to make a consistent income (no matter how small or large)  just selling the overpriced products. The data that proves that almost no one is making money from actually selling Mary Kay products to customers. And even at the top of the Mary Kay pyramid, not a whole lot of money is being made.

Here is Mary Kay’s official response to the segment:

Important Message from U.S. President, Darrell Overcash
Published 10.3.15

Mary Kay products have achieved top 10 beauty brand status globally and we continue to top consumer loyalty lists. Continue Reading →


Pink Truth is Filled With Negative Rants

Why are you doing this? Anytime I look for something for my business your blog comes up. I do understand that this did not work for you, but its not a blanket experience. It works for some and not for others.

The 4 minutes it takes me to type this isn’t really worth it, but its hard for me to understand where God plays a role in the time and energy you have put into making this website. Its filled with negative rants about how it didn’t work for you. But it does work for others, many others, enough others that it can be given a fair chance. It just seems like you are bitter because it didn’t work for you.

Its hard to believe Wal-Mart does not work for everyone (shoppers, employees, distributors) but it still stands as a multi-billion dollar company…., there are thousand of companies or jobs that just didn’t work for some people, but that does not make it bad for everyone. I truly believe that your analytical and writing skills can be channeled to really do something amazing….just not this. This is just way too negative and I have to find a way to block your site from my searches. I don’t know your name, but I will be praying that God heal your heart from whatever tore a hole in it. God bless.


We Don’t Want You in Mary Kay

Don’t Blame Mary Kay For Being a Failure!

A bit of advice for us from a concerned Mary Kay consultant…

I find all your posts very amusing.

A lot of the women in here seem to be having a big hangup about Mary kay and about the way that Mary Kay does business. The REAL PROBLEM is YOU. You are the ones who are all at fault becuase you didn’t make any money in Mary Kay. It’s nobody else’s fault. It’s not your director’s fault and it’s not the company’s fault. You make your business become what you put into it. It seems like a lot of women in here are in denial that the REAL PROBLEM is themselves and NOT Mary Kay. A lot fo the Mary Kay consultants are not trained or do not want to be trained properly. Continue Reading →


You’re Not Being Fair! You Didn’t Work Hard Enough!!!

A friendly note from someone who thinks we have no idea what we’re talking about and we didn’t work hard enough in multi-level marketing!!!

Hello Pink Truth:

I stumbled on your site by accident. I read on just to see if you had uncovered some things about MLM businesses that might be new and different and, of course, accurate.  To my disappointment, I found many generalized short statements not supported by sufficient detail to help any objective person to learn anything about the businesses.

Feeling the Mary Kay Love…

 I always find it amusing that women who are so “positive” and “fulfilled” through their Mary Kay Cosmetics experience can hurl such insults and threats at us. Gosh, if we’re so horrible, why do they want to stoop down to our level? Check out the advice for us from this happy and loving Mary Kay consultant…

This site is SICK. At least half the comments  are from individuals that are STILL in MK, have been to  Seminar, and go to meetings. Are you people really that sick to be involved in something and hate and criticize it at the same time?  If you hate it so much (i.e. weren’t successful in MK and are a raving, jealous lunatic) then get a different life (outside of this demented website) and forget about those of us that are successfully helping women who are THANKFUL for an opportunity, any opportunity, that has helped to change their circumstances. My life was changed, and why is that such a problem for you people? Oh, yeah, because you are insane. Continue Reading →


How Many Mary Kay Cliches Can You Put in One Email?

This critic has really been drinking the Mary Kay pink Kool-Aid!

I am really sorry to have to say this, but you have a really sick sense of humor!!

There is a reason that Mary Kay Cosmetics has been the #1 selling cosmetics in the U.S for 15 YEARS IN A ROW!! I am very offended by your comments, and of your insensitivity towards not only Mary Kay herself, but also to Pam Shaw, who just happens to be one of the top NSDs in Mary Kay today.

I completely understand that you are entitled to your opinion, but you are sadly mistaken. I have known more women who were beaten down into spineless nothings before they got into the WONDERFUL business of Mary Kay. Now they are empowered, self assured, and most likely making a lot more money then most of the rest of us do. If Mary Kay doesn’t work for you then fine, don’t do it. But PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not go bashing it just because you don’t like it.  Continue Reading →
