Caption This Mary Kay Photo Tasteless: Mary Kay Directors and NSDs Defending Unethical Business Practices 47 Comments antique rose June 8, 2013 at 10:27 am 8 years ago Coming Soon to Toys R Us! It’s the Jay-Oh doll! Eleven and one half inches of life sized polyurethane. Remote control dial makes this unique doll say inspiring MKC slogans’ “Order now” “Show up to go up” “Fake it till you make it” and more. batteries not included MLM Radar June 8, 2013 at 10:56 am 8 years ago With those eyes and lips I envisioned Maleficent. The personality type fits too. MLM Radar June 8, 2013 at 10:59 am 8 years ago That link above is the Maleficent picture. Check the color palette. It never occurred to me that Maleficent used Mary Kay makeup, but that could explain a lot of things about her. Jessica June 8, 2013 at 6:04 pm 8 years ago Just goes to show the Spring 2013 Zen Collection isn’t as versatile or wearable as advertised. anan April 7, 2014 at 2:48 pm 7 years ago It’s the new spring color guacomole for Mary Kay!!!!! NeverWasPink June 8, 2013 at 11:17 am 8 years ago I still haven’t stopped laughing over what rings90 said about “so this is what a $600 personal-use order looks like then?” Bwahahaha…. Chessie June 8, 2013 at 11:21 am 8 years ago I agree with 99.9% of the info this website puts out. But I think this picture lowers the standards to a “mean girl” expression. People do need to have the accurate information about the “marketing plan” of MK, but let’s not sink to this level. Embracethis June 8, 2013 at 1:15 pm 8 years ago Mean? It’s not mean to comment on the fact that this NSD is wearing a ridiculous amount of makeup. Lynn June 8, 2013 at 3:11 pm 8 years ago Agreed. TRACY June 8, 2013 at 5:52 pm 8 years ago Sorry, but when one of the top members of a MAKEUP company makes herself up to look like a clown, I reserve the right to criticize. 🙂 oshunanat June 9, 2013 at 11:41 am 8 years ago I would agree, except that she’s priding herself on being a professional and looks anything but. That’s not to say that there aren’t pros at MAC or at MUFE that have on a ton of make-up too, but the difference is that there make-up is applied properly and in a flattering way. Ortega? Not so much. The thing is, if she kept the eyeshadow to the lid and wore something more neutral from the crease to the browline and cut the amount of eyeliner in half and filled in her brows a bit less, she could actually look really nice. As it is, for someone marketing herself as someone capable of teaching other women to apply make-up she looks a fool. Comparing this picture to Cruella just highlights the difference between a bunch of make-up applied well (Cruella) and poorly (her) Susan June 10, 2013 at 9:09 am 8 years ago Oshunanat, You hit the nail on the head. Ortega isn’t in Mary Kay so that she can teach other women how to apply makeup. She (and other NSDs) are in MK to sell an opportunity, front – load inventory to fresh meat and have a “lifestyle”. Ortega’s lack of cosmetic application skills drives that fact home. Kittycat June 8, 2013 at 12:03 pm 8 years ago What to do with all those products I can’t sell. D June 8, 2013 at 4:48 pm 8 years ago Just wait until April (when the prices go up) CaliforniaGal June 8, 2013 at 7:21 pm 8 years ago Amazing! The Mary Kay NSD has more makeup! This is so wrong on several levels. justwow June 8, 2013 at 8:04 pm 8 years ago Record Breaking Ortega National Area! I want to thank all of you for being women of excellence and being one of only 250 National Areas in the entire USA! We picked up our 11th Trophy On Wheels ‘The Powder Pink Cadillac Escalade’ last week. It had a $90,000 sticker price! I had a professional video made as my gift back to you as many of you live in different States and around the world…. I want you to experience the joy and celebration that your sister consultants felt in that Magical Moment! Watch Video Here => http://tinyurl.com/mf4qjaw justwow June 8, 2013 at 8:06 pm 8 years ago Let me be more specific– this was waiting for me in my inbox. The level of narcissism is astounding Jessica June 8, 2013 at 11:49 pm 8 years ago All of the NSDs are egomaniacs. But Gillian Ortega is the worst of them all.So many of her videos on youtube are of her opening her gifts in front of consultants and rubbing their face in it. I get sick when I watch the video where she makes (“allows”) one of her minions to open her package for a directors trip. As if it’s not bad enough that the consultant went into debt placing orders so Ortega could go on the trip. Now she has to open her mail as well? TRACY June 9, 2013 at 8:18 am 8 years ago I found the hair video funny. EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW HOW I MAKE MY HAIR SO AMAZING!!! Listen… if you’re using a bump-it or anything close to it, your hair is not amazing and NO ONE should copy it. Jessica June 9, 2013 at 3:59 pm 8 years ago Copy my hairdo! You’ll be sugar sharp and won’t have to re-do your hair for three days! You too can look like a reject Texas high school homecoming queen! You know who else teases her hair every three days? My grandma. No thanks. sonotpink June 13, 2013 at 8:50 am 8 years ago I just can’t believe any modern professional woman would wear her hair that way on a daily basis. for a wedding or special occassion, yes. But not to work everyday. And how in heck does it last for three days? Does the woman not shower or sleep? 15yearspink June 18, 2013 at 1:05 pm 8 years ago (1) What decade was this pic made??!! I haven’t seen eyes like that since, what, the late ’80s? (2) Jessica, you just slandered “reject Texas high school homecoming queens” everywhere. And our numbers are legion. Sniff, sniff PinkfanbutnoMKfan June 9, 2013 at 11:33 am 8 years ago That woman was so egotistical I could barely stomach it. And all those women clamoring around the car like it was the best thing in the world to see. My old director earned her Cadillac because she had convinced probably 5 to 6 women to order $3600 + wholesale. she had 3 red jackets (when I was in that I recall) one of whom went into DIQ because her family signed up to sell just to her qualified in time. I don’ think she made it and she dropped out. I see her old office assistant has gone into DIQ multiple times and is unable to finish. When I remember seeing the car I did think it was pretty cool and the SD did ask me to take pictures… now I look back and laugh at how dumb it was to fan over a gas guzzling vehicle. whatwasipinking? June 9, 2013 at 9:42 am 8 years ago Just watched the video…ugh. Sickening. Scrib June 10, 2013 at 1:39 pm 8 years ago “I had a professional video made as my gift back to you…” TRANSLATION: Thanks for ordering when you probably didn’t have to, but did anyway in an effort to get me to stop haranguing you! While you’ll never drive the car you helped me “win,” be sure to enter next month’s contest where you can have a chance to ride to the grocery store with me in the back seat! And as a special “thank-you,” I got my son to throw something together in between his onomatopoeia-stuffed internet coaching monologues. Love, Gillian. BOOM Kinzie June 8, 2013 at 8:29 pm 8 years ago It is unfortunate because Gillian does have a very pretty face. MLM Radar June 9, 2013 at 11:05 am 8 years ago Yes, botox and facelifts can do that. Siri June 9, 2013 at 3:09 pm 8 years ago Pretty is as pretty does – she has the face she deserves I’m afraid… Scrib June 8, 2013 at 8:52 pm 8 years ago Once again, I’m laughing because of what recruiters are told to say to potential MK recruits who object with “Why should I join MK? I don’t wear makeup!” “Would you be surprised to learn that many of our most successful consultants and Directors don’t really wear a lot of makeup — but they are committed to good skin care?” NSD Ortega appears to be really, REALLY committed to good skin care. ttp June 8, 2013 at 10:34 pm 8 years ago “Mary Kay Clown School of Cosmetology” That much makeup troweled on is aging her. Less is more! Nichole June 9, 2013 at 6:39 am 8 years ago Since mk eyeshadow isn’t that pigmented, do you think she tells her downline to just use a whole pan on each eye (rather than admitting that she uses a different brand altogether)? Siri June 9, 2013 at 3:11 pm 8 years ago A whole pan, lol – I have visions of her cooking up a batch of goop and slathering a saucepanful on each eyelid! la June 10, 2013 at 11:08 am 8 years ago I am sure she does tell her downline to use a pan on each eye. Gotta keep those star orders rolling in! Whatwasipinking? June 9, 2013 at 9:43 am 8 years ago I’m pretty sure Cruella has on less makeup. onceapinkhead June 9, 2013 at 9:59 am 8 years ago And Cruella’s expression is far more sincere. NeverPink June 9, 2013 at 1:59 pm 8 years ago I had to laugh that throughout the video, Gillian was putting on MORE Makeup. Gah! NeverPink June 9, 2013 at 2:02 pm 8 years ago I also had to laugh on the FB comments, that one person posted that she can’t wait to take Gillian’s car for a test drive. Who thinks that will ever happen? ha ha Siri June 9, 2013 at 3:25 pm 8 years ago It says on her website that she has ‘won’ ten cars; I assume that means she’s driving the most recent one, and the rest she’s either sold or given tofamily members. When you win something, it’s yours to keep, right? No? Run that by us again, Gillian? NeverPink June 9, 2013 at 5:03 pm 8 years ago I also had to laugh that at one part of the video, when Vince Jr, Gillian’s son, is standing near his mom, they are talking about two women that basically helped watch Vince when he was younger so that Gillian could run her MK business. How ironic IS THAT? I thought MK made it possible to be a SAH mom but they admit on her video, that she had to have other women help raise her son because she was gone so much doing her MK business. I laughed out loud. Did anyone else catch that? Scrib June 10, 2013 at 1:43 pm 8 years ago Yep, I did! “We always talk about how you guys sacrifice at the beginning to get to the place where you want to be, right? So Wanda and Teneille, they hooked me up for Mom when I was growing up so she could go out and work her business…” ~Vincent Ortega Jr. MK is all about “God First, Family Second, Career Third?” NOPE PinkfanbutnoMKfan June 10, 2013 at 8:05 pm 8 years ago Yep caught that too. jolie June 9, 2013 at 9:04 pm 8 years ago Yes i caught that, I thought career was third?….Ive watched a ton of youtubes videos on MK, Gillians take the cake, What an empty, decetiful narcisstic family! anon June 10, 2013 at 7:07 am 8 years ago It’s Tammy Faye’s long lost daughter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FormerMKGUY June 10, 2013 at 1:20 pm 8 years ago All MK girls look like Drag Queens….lol FormerMKGUY June 13, 2013 at 3:24 pm 8 years ago Oh wait, drag queens usually have taste!…lol notapartyfan June 10, 2013 at 5:10 pm 8 years ago She even looks worse in the video (it that’s possible). Good grief. She’s made up like a clown! That is not an exaggeration, if you haven’t already, check out the video. Makes me wonder what the sales people thought. They had to get a huge chuckle out of that get-up. Yeah, I know they don’t care if you have 3 heads as long as they’re selling cars, but really – there had to be some major snickering and cellphone snapshots going on that day. I’m just so taken back by what she looks like I couldn’t possibly focus on anything she has to say. Nichole June 22, 2013 at 11:58 am 8 years ago Ha!
