Women Are Taught to Lie In Mary Kay

mlm-liesThis is the story of a former Mary Kay director who was taught to deceive women in order to get the numbers to move up. When her directorship finally ended, she and her husband were forced to put their dreams on hold while they recovered from near financial ruin.

Here is the truth and nothing but the truth. I have always tried to be straight forward and honest, but sometimes we lie to ourselves.  Well over the last few months I have come to see clearly some things I have lied to myself and others about.

I signed up for Mary Kay 2 ½ years ago just to get my product at cost, since I was using plenty of it anyway.  Well after doing some reading I found it was much more profitable than the MLM I was doing for 1 year before Mary Kay.  It also offered a lot more as far as support and training.

Pink Truth and Mary Kay on ABC’s 20/20

pinktruth_on_2020Tune in to 20/20 on ABC on Friday October 2  for a story on the truth behind Mary Kay’s multi-level marketing “opportunity.” MLM is not a business opportunity, it’s a clever scam that has been made to look like a business. Host Rebecca Jarvis takes a look at long-time multi-level predator Mary Kay Cosmetics. Those on the side of MLM say you can make “unlimited” money on your own terms, while those who are on the opposite side have found that 99% of distributors actually lose money.

Four long-time Pink Truth members were interviewed at length for they story. They were all sales directors, and therefore part of the “top 2% of Mary Kay.” These women are part of the Mary Kay Cosmetics success story. Or are they? The truth is that the majority of the sales directors are barely making a minimum wage living, while some of them are actually losing money.

This story digs into the Mary Kay con that has been crafted and refined for over 50 years. Please take the time to watch this story. And if you have any friends or family involved in multi-level marketing, please encourage them to watch too.


Mary Kay Directorship Production = No Problem

This comment was left by a Kaybot on our article about a former Mary Kay sales director. She mistakenly believes that the women on Pink Truth don’t take responsibility for their own actions. That’s not true. They do take responsibility for listening to their upline and finishing directorship the way everyone does…. with fake consultants and purchased production.

It is important to note that this consultant believes that doing “30 faces per month” for half a year will sustain director production for the year. It won’t. And you should also know that she says “because I do it”…. yet she is NOT even a director.

This is a great look into how someone can create a mess in Mary Kay if they try to buy their way into leadership? How about doing the faces and having fun!! If you did not make a goal oh well? Mary Kay is first about the product and the customers. If you loved that part so much you should have not had this much trouble. Continue Reading →


The Dozen Deadly Mistakes Sales Directors Make

A national sales director offers more “advice” to sales directors, even though we know that little of it really makes a difference when you’re working in the no-win MLM system.

This little gem comes from a Mary Kay national sales director who has been begging her area to increase her personal income for the last year. (Yes, you read that right.) From her sales director newsletter:

I believe I’ve come up with a TOTAL AREA WHOLESALE number that will take us to DIAMOND CIRCLE (my commissions=$200,000) and INNER CIRCLE ($325,000) Let’s shoot for Diamond Circle this year as a stepping stone WHILE WE BUILD to INNER CIRCLE!! Continue Reading →


Top Ten Reasons to Get Out of Mary Kay Directorship

Written by Raisinberry

#10- No longer having to attend the annual clap and cry session in Dallas, awarding women for their ability to use multiple credit cards.

#8- To develop intelligent language skills to replace, “awesome! dream big! pink hugs!love and belief!, fake it till you make it!, you bring about what you think about! and restore normal, thoughtful communication. Continue Reading →


The Real Cost of Mary Kay Directorship

Written by PinkPeace

Nobody tells you what it costs to be a Mary Kay sales director. If they did, no one would want this position. It’s the sales directors I feel sorriest for in this business, because they are squeezed from both sides in order to try to be successful.

The minute you finish DIQ (and girlfriend, I know you put in a whopping amount of personal production to make it happen), you are confronted with expenses you didn’t realize you’d have. Continue Reading →


A Letter to My National Sales Director

Written by Raisinberry

My Dear NSD,

The letter you are about to read is coming from the heart of every Director in your National Area, who has had a breath of fresh air long enough, to evaluate the reality of their business. Parts of this letter will be painful to us both, and parts will offer healing. When I review my career in Mary Kay, I am left asking myself some very hard questions and these questions I am asking of you as well. Continue Reading →


Never Miss Production Again!

Who would have thought that a Mary Kay director would brag that other directors “deserve” to earn $15,000 a year?

I mean, after all, if you’re working full time for $15,000 a year, that’s about $7.50 an hour. Doesn’t that sound grand? Boy. I can’t wait to be a Mary Kay sales director!!! But the below email suggests exactly that… directors deserve to earn $15,000 a year.

And the truth comes out! This director admits that if you’re getting monthly production of the minimum $4,000, you’re only making about $600 a month as a director. Can you get excited about that? Someone in Mary Kay is finally willing to tell the truth about this loser of an opportunity. (The email also mentions the real deal in Mary Kay… recruiting!) Continue Reading →


The Glory In Wilted Laurels

Written by Raisinberry

It occurred to me the other day that Mary Kay Ash transferred her unhealthy workaholic tendencies to thousands of women all over America.

What seemed like good counsel was her notion that each achievement one attains should only be celebrated, briefly, with the next goal clearly in view. I believed this whole heartedly. I won my first car in Mary Kay back in the days when they sent you a small car poster cut in 4 parts, and as each month of $4,000 wholesale was completed, then sent you the next part.
