Pink Truth is Distasteful

I’m sending this email as a call to change in regards to pink truths practices on spelling out the “deceptive practices” of this company.

I’m not really sure of anyone’s true walk or experience in this buisness, however, after researching your site it seems that all of your articles are filled with great disdain toward the buisness. Then again that was the whole point of it, but how can anyone try save another person from their own personal insecurities, failures, mishaps, etc; by being negative.

I am a proud Marykay Beauty Consultant, before that I am a believer in Christ! I did not come to know Christ through my directors, but I know that with Him, through Him I can be successful.

I also wanted to express that this site is distasteful, since we cannot control freedom of speech, the authors of this site has every right to post what they may. Moreover, I have that same freedom as well to speak freely and to state that though you are strong in opinion and have a great message of caution to share, the manner in which you do it, could fall on bad soil, in which you may block your own blessings. Often times we feel the need to safeguard others, from negative experiences , but the reality is your feeding your own spirit with negativity.

The Bible says in Phil 4:8 “whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, think on these things.”

So think on what you may say to expose a lie, but also examine yourself to make sure that you are in right standing to judge what’s right. I pray that you will receive this my in light &love, but to know that though you are no longer part of MaryKay, The Golden Rule is a lifestyle and not a tagline

God Bless you!

    this site is about FACTS. MK is simply an iventory front loading scheme where the product happens to be cosmetics. Fact that commissions are paid on orders and not sales is a TRUE definition of a pyramid scheme.

    and please, leave religion out of it. God is not out to deceive people into pyramid schemes.

    Please be careful because Mary Kay will use your faith for their own financial gain. Yes, we are disdainful because Mary Kay lied to us, manipulated us and does this to millions every year. Yes “Safeguarding others from negative experiences” IS a goal, perhaps the main goal, of Pink Truth. It is the duty of those who have been scammed to warn others. We may poke fun and seem bitter and negative but this is a way to heal from our experiences.

    “Often times we feel the need to safeguard others, from negative experiences , but the reality is your feeding your own spirit with negativity.”

    “So think on what you may say to expose a lie, but also examine yourself to make sure that you are in right standing to judge what’s right.”

    I’m sure God had a thing about not lying. I believe it is one of His big 10 rules. This is a whole bundle of victim-shaming coated with a syrup of pompous faux-religion.

    I think this writer would have chastised Jesus for “being negative” when he chased the money-changers out of the temple.

    This email is a perfect example of how fear of the negative can warp ones thinking (“toxic positivity”). Negative feedback is a good thing; it corrects a wrong move. We use negative feedback nearly every moment of our lives, to keep us from stepping off a cliff, drinking from the wrong bottle, missing a doorway…

    A circuit or control system without negative feedback is “inherently unstable.” Good name for it.

    When I read letters like this, it infuriates me the way that MLMs (including but not limited to Mary Kay) have hijacked Christianity. It also makes me mad the way that the church has become a feel-good place with a band and no real teaching so that people fall for this.

    Jesus came to save us from our sins, not so you can sell blush. You may be successful with Mary Kay, and you may not, but the Bible NEVER promises material wealth or success in ANY earthly endeavor. Luckily none of us is God, so we can’t “block our own blessings” except in one important way; we can look away from and distort the truth so much that it keeps us from joy and knowing Him. That’s what’s happening here. Praying letter-writer gets into a real church or good Bible study group.

      “It also makes me mad the way that the church has become a feel-good place with a band and no real teaching so that people fall for this.”

      YES!!

      My husband and I seem to have this conversation a lot, we get invited to a lot of churches that seem to preach the prosperity gospels and it’s just not our type of a worship. We also talk about 2 phrases we dislike hearing in today’s world, they are. – I’m a Christian and my church is so welcoming, you need to come because you would love it. And the 2nd one is – I do Cross Fit…

    The writer needs to stop ordering any product and see how loving and supportive her Director becomes towards her. MK isn’t about love and friendship- her only value is the amount of inventory she buys in order to financially benefit her upline and corporate.

      First, it is Mary Kay, not MaryKay. ROFL! The rest of your writing and thought process is just as bad or worse. Scoot along little girl, grownups are talking at the table. Come back in 3 years with your schedule C. If you can spell the name of your company correctly too, I will read your drivel.

    “I have that same freedom as well to speak freely and to state that (blah blah)…”

    Actually, you don’t. What I mean is that you do not have free reign to say whatever you want and however you want to ON THIS SITE. Tracy doesn’t HAVE to publish your comments. Now, you’re certainly able to START YOUR OWN SITE where you can share nothing but positive, feel-good posts about MK. But make no mistake: whenever you send comments to this site/site owner you have NO legal “right” that demands they be published or shared here.

    So go on and speak freely on your social media, to your friends, on the Pro-Mary Kay site you own and operate at your own cost (oh wait, oopsies, you don’t have that). But don’t assume for one minute that Tracy HAS to publish anything you send here or post here.

    “The Bible says…” —

    If she’s going to reference a particular book as her authority, this woman (created from male remnants of course. Lol) should not selectively ignore its guidance.

    1 Timothy 2: 11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection; 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence; 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve; 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

    She writes, “Moreover, I have that same freedom as well to speak freely” — Did she ask her husband or father first?

    I’ll bet she thinks men have one less rib; one donated to create woman. (Roll eyes) You cannot make this ridiculous $hit up. Oh wait, yes you can, especially when people don’t focus on facts. Don’t believe me? Count them!

    In my sojourn into Mary Kay, I don’t remember “faith” (as in God) being a big part of it, except as a general construct to keep me continuing to try in Mary Kay when I wouldn’t have otherwise.

    -“Have faith.” Which meant, stay in Mary Kay even though it’s not working because God wants you to.
    -“God first, family second, career third.” This was used as a marketing tool to support their outright lie that you could work Mary Kay for a few hours a week and make money at it.

    Maybe it was just my unit. I don’t know…
