Yes, the Mary Kay “Warm Chat” Does Hurt People

 This story was sent in by one of our readers. She was “warm chatted” by a Mary Kay consultant, and was very hurt when she figured out it was all a recruiting tactic…

I am a mom of a 10-month-old boy, he’s the light of my life. Since I had him I have joined in a few activities for new moms in my neighborhood but haven’t found a lot of other moms I “clicked” with. Most of my existing friends don’t have kids yet, and I would really like to meet some moms to hang out with and have playgroups with as my kiddo grows up.

I love my friends that don’t have kids and hang out with them when I can, but those with kids know that your life changes completely, priorities change and when you no longer have all day to get pedicures, lunch and go shopping it’s hard sometimes to keep up with what’s going on with your friends who do have that kind of time. I would really like to make friends with moms who have the same values I do about what to teach kids, and so far it’s been difficult to find that in my area, although I keep looking.

Help Me Recruit You into Mary Kay

Here’s a little recruiting questionaire that a Mary Kay consultant is supposed to use to “get to know you better.” The truth is that it’s really meant for her to find out what you “hot buttons” are so she can manipulate you as much as possible.

Are you in need of some time with adults? She’ll play on that. Does your car need some expensive repairs? You’ll hear all about the money (mostly non-existent, but why let the truth get in the way). Want to make your family proud of you? Guilt trip from her about how you should be making them proud.

You get the picture… Notice especially the husband manipulation that is being set up.  Continue Reading →

Everyone Can Hold 2 Mary Kay Classes a Week!

I’m not sure how a Kaybot can presume to know the details of everyone’s life and conclude that anyone and everyone can hold 2 Mary Kay classes a week… but that’s not stopping them! Below is another one of those “if you can’t do it you’re a loser” type of rantings from a Mary Kay nsd.

In the Mary Kay world, “2 classes” is easy and anyone can do it. Those of us who have been in Mary Kay (or have had friends and relatives in MK) know that the hard part of that theory is actually finding women to book the classes, then hoping that they actually have them. That’s a lot harder than it may sound to an outsider. Continue Reading →


The Mary Kay “Sales Tactics” Are Evil

The debate rages on between the “pro” and “anti” sides of the debate about Mary Kay Cosmetics.

On one side, we have women who claim Mary Kay has a wonderful opportunity that has enriched many women. Everything in Mary Kay is optional, and only lazy losers who didn’t work hard enough and couldn’t say no to the occasional unethical director failed.

On the other side, you have women who have the ability to apply logic and reason to the situation They realize that since 99% of women lose money in MLMs, this isn’t a wonderful opportunity. They know that Mary Kay has put millions of women in debt. Continue Reading →


Mary Kay a Less Stressful Way to Pay the Bills?

 Those who have tried to make a true living with Mary Kay will tell you that it is anything but “less stressful.” Yet here is one sales director’s description of how easy it is.

Ever considered a less stressful way to pay the bills:

It’s great to be open minded about other options in today’s economy because of the changing job market. Plus, I believe that no knowledge is lost; it just makes us more powerful as women. This may or may not be a fit. My job is not to persuade women to change careers by any means but simply to educate them on the changes with our company and the career. Continue Reading →


No Doesn’t Really Mean NO in Mary Kay

Here is an email response from a recruiter who has just been told that the friend has changed her mind about joining Mary Kay and won’t make any big decisions without praying and getting input from her husband. She says she’ll let the recruiter know if she ever changes her mind about Mary Kay: Continue Reading →


Job Description For a Mary Kay Sales Director

 This is another one of those writings that gets emailed ad nauseum from Mary Kay sales directors. News flash: The hundreds of Mary Kay sales directors who step down, quit, or are fired every month can vouch for the fact that directorship sucks.

It’s not really about leading or helping women. It’s about signing them up fast enough, and getting them to buy enough inventory, so that the sales director can “move up” and make more money. Continue Reading →


Your Downline’s Failure is Your Gain

 Written by Raisinberry

It’s time to share one of the most self serving and diabolical aspects of National Sales Directorship in Mary Kay Cosmetics. While you may have thought you had heard it all, you have not. There’s more.

To highlight the aspect I am about to share, we need to be reminded about what we have been sold in regards to making it to the pinnacle of success in Mary Kay. These women are the crème de la crème. They model all that is good and right and noble about Mary Kay. They are executives, who allow you to sit at their feet, gleaning all that you should know to follow in their footsteps. Such generosity of spirit! They are in your amen corner, praising you to success and rewarding your integrity and work ethic, with the main goal of raising up new leadership in the “Mary Kay way”. That is of course until they figure out they can make more money if they just let you fail. Continue Reading →


You’re Going to Cause Me To File Bankruptcy

Mary Kay really works, but a recruiter is blaming her recruits for causing her to file bankruptcy. Does Mary Kay really work?

I find it ironic that the critics of Pink Truth say we shouldn’t blame any of our Mary Kay experiences on anyone else. That we were completely in control of everything, and if we believed all the lies we were told, too bad! Continue Reading →
