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 →


You’re Just Bitter Because You Didn’t Succeed in Mary Kay

An email I received from a very “successful” woman who has been in Mary Kay a whole month!

I started selling Mary Kay a little over a month ago, and I happened to run across your site this morning. I find your site to be extremely one-sided. Of course, not everyone is cut out to run a business, not everyone is cut out to be a Mary Kay consultant, or you would find everyone selling it, if it was sooo easy.

I am not sure what kind of Sales Directors those people on your site have but they were obviously not of any caliber. I was never lied to or told that I NEEDED to buy inventory. I still haven’t bought any inventory yet and have already made over $2,000 for my family from Mary Kay. And I do not have any other source of income. I have three children under the age of four and I don’t have much time to put into my business but I am doing well. Continue Reading →


Have You Read “That” Website?

Yes, “that” website, is in fact Pink Truth. This email was written by a Mary Kay sales director who doesn’t want women to read Pink Truth because it might cause them to doubt Mary Kay. The thing is…. we’re just telling the truth. And yes, it causes doubt because it is in conflict with the misrepresentations women receive from corporate, sales directors, and recruiters.

You Didn’t Want to Do the Work it Takes to Succeed in Mary Kay

A note from a Mary Kaybot…

It seems that those who created this page simply have an ax to grind and can’t stand the idea of any woman having ambition, a positive and uplifting product, or success. Mary Kay is like any other business in so far as it takes a certain personality type to succeed in its structure and sell its products. Mary Kay treats women like thinking adults who are the best judge of their own character and personality, and who can decide for their own selves whether they can succeed in the company. The fact that they do not hold extensive personality tests and interviews to see if there is a personality match is smart on their part because they show that they are not judging a woman and her ability to succeed in the business.

Pink Truth Is So Negative!

Here are a handful of comments from Pink Truth critics. It’s fun to be reminded how negative we are. It’s a good thing we’re really so positive… positive that Mary Kay Sucks!!!

From Giovanna:

the negative comments make me sick! everything is so negative when you want to see it like that…. it’s better to get over and move forward . If Mk is past, leave it in the past… my advise! don’t live regretting things! it’s life and nothing is perfect! for those who claim that the MK is free ad. of course, but you are the one who is driving it.. so i guess that’s is a good thing in life, being able to drive a car! don’t be so negative…

From Renee:

Why does the Pink Truth go on and on with such negativity? If you don’t like Mary Kay that is your choice but your raging ragging is over the top!! Why not take all that negative energy and try to start your own business doing something else? Little, medium, big businesses succeed OR FAIL everyday in the US. That is called Capitalism and Freedom. Get over your failure as Mary Kay reps! Move on!! This is a sick sight! Sorry I stumbled on it but interesting to see how many like to blame someone else for their failures.

From Linda:

None of your negative comments get to me. You are ALL catty females that thought MK was a get rich quick scheme. from the looks of it. I just joined MK in November, but at 60 years of age, with a Nursing career behind me (which ultimately messed up my back) and babysitting my God son four days a week for 24/7, how is it that I am doing sales of a MINIMUM of $100/wk. WITHOUT really putting out a lot of effort?

In the course of my lifetime, I have known a LOT of women. The negative thinkers NEVER succeed at ANYTHING as long as they MUST pick apart anything that they didn’t succeed at themselves.

I’ve learned that these negative thinkers can only find validation in themselves if they put others down, be it groups or individuals. Only those who failed at their endeavors because of their own lack of effort and positive drive in life will cluster together, because MISERY LOVES COMPANY.

So, ladies, having stumbled upon this site, and gaining nothing but sour grapes, I will take my leave of your bitter negativity, because when one is not being lifted up, one is wise to extricate oneself from the trappings of being surrounded by unhappy people.

Au revoir, Mes Amie’s! Auf Wiedersehen!

From Yair:

ok, i have like a billion things i would like to say and i dont even know where to start, but what you do is wrong, i dont know if you worked or not(which must have been the case) but your trategy was the wrong one. you should keep this kind of things to your self, this make you look like a b%$#. mary kay really changed my life, im not in mary kay but my mom is, she is an excecutive sales director, and i live from mary kay, and believe me that the life style that she gives me i dont think she can afford it in another job. shou should think before oppening your mouth. i live from mary kay and i live good.



Pink Truth Members: You Suck!

A now former member of Pink Truth offered these kind words for all of us in the comments to one of our articles. I couldn’t risk the comments being buried… I wanted the whole world to see how wonderfully kind and supportive Mary Kay women are.

The whole company just makes me feel warm and fuzzy. How about you?

I present Missy’s kind words…

I have been a consultant for 8 years and I’ve seen good and bad. The thing that upsets me most is that you are all pointing the finger at the company. This is a great company with a few Independent Contractors that lack integrity. I have seen this company revoke directorship and cars from consultants for the very issues stated in this blog.
