Facts, opinions, and the real story behind Mary Kay Cosmetics.

Someone Misguided Is In Charge of Pink Truth

I received an email asking who put Pink Truth together and whether it was one former sales director with Mary Kay. I asked why it would matter, and got this in response:

It would matter because IF that is the case then that means I being one person, who is also a previous sales director and been raised in the company could orchestrate information next to the “pink truth” to set the record straight….

Because it’s obvious that someone misguided whom ever is in charge of the pink truth site AND if this is truly the feelings and concerns THEN obviously there is a cry for someone to set the record straight….

Being felt led to do so, I can and I will, gladly… I’m sorry whomever is responsible for the mid representation of Mary Kay Ash’s business, but I can assure you it is not all according to as the pink truth says so.. There is a legitimate Godly business unfortunately not every woman who joins the company represents it as so…

The good news is, that one day each one of us Will stand before our maker, whether we believe this truth or not, and answer to what we did in this life.

I apologize for the misrepresentation of this company but I am a firm believer of Mary Kay Ash’s God given dream to be utilized as a tool in hopes of changing women’s lives with confidence but more so upholding her image…what image? It Should be the image of Christ.. But to ruin and bash every Mary Kay representative is a little harsh… To set the record straight, might be just as much of a challenge but I promise you, IF priorities are lined up accordingly as God first, family second and career third, there would not be an issue..

Unfortunately we do not live in a perfect world.

I challenge you to look beyond your hurt of this misrepresentation and open up your spiritual eyes as to seeing that Biblically, we are not to present a problem unless there is a solution.

I could present a Biblical solution to all of this, honest. And I intend to do so..

That is why it matters, because to Jesus, a hurt and wounded heart, matters. He loves us all and He cares about the concerns of people. He sees the hearts and lives and He is taking note, even at this very hour. I challenge you to open up your heart to Him. If you listen, and draw near to Him, it is a promise that He will draw near to you….

The pink truth may be about some pretty harsh statements and may be true according to the representation of whomever gave the wrong example, But the only perfect man was Jesus and lead this email message to you, because He cares for you that much. I challenge you to listen to His voice, that He wants to bring you healing. I challenge you not to keep your heart hardened and listen to His small still voice. There is only one Truth and with it comes deception, yes. There is biblical truth, it is a responsibility to search for it, if you do, you will find it.

I am due to write a book on how God made Himself known to me. I was an atheist and the Spirit of God came to me and spoke to me and how to hear the difference in the voice of the world verses His voice, and Has been leading me ever since and has lead me to you.

There is no need for any confrontation about details, the only thing that really matters is, Do you know Jesus Christ as your Best Friend? There may be an area that has caused you pain and He is right there waiting for you to give it to Him, to show you the way, the truth and life. There is nothing else besides this truth. Everything else comes from it OR goes against it.

The pink truth is a loud voice with no solution; Here is your solution.

I don’t know you but I see your name is Tracy and I leave you with a prayer, because the Bible says we either speak blessings OR curses and I speak a blessing over your life. I was challenged to share Jesus with someone today and that person is you.

I don’t know what you believe, but All you have to know is that Jesus loves you and He died for you and He wants to fill your life and change you from the inside out if you let him.

You see, this is not about pink truth. This is a matter of your life.

I would advise a solution NoT just a problem. The world wants and needs answers. Here lies your answer….Or the beginning at least.

Take Care Tracy, I will continue to utilize the Truth that is within and expose the powers of darkness because this is what we as children of God are called to do. And greater love has no man than to lay down his life for his friends…… Hope you find some sincerity here. In the name of Jesus, I bind up your hurt and loose freedom in Christ. Today, for you. Repent and obey, the only way to begin your spiritual freedom is to forgive. Forgiveness is a powerful thing, when you loose forgiveness, you are in turn forgiven and all that has you bound is loosed. I pray that this will be so for you and maybe one day I will meet you in faith and know that God truly did a miracle for you today. So be it.

If all this seems crazy to you, Good… God is trying to get your attention. He Loves you that much… I will pray with you any time. I love Jesus more than anything in this life, honest. And He has set me free. I know He is real.

      The Blood Of Jesus Christ Washes Away The Sins Of The World.

      That is my recollection of an oftenheard statement in church, and I’m not being blasphemous, I am illustrating how a good kbot can take ANYTHING and twist it to their purposes.

  1. NayMKWay

    This is just sad. This writer clearly lacks the sophistication to undertake a dispassionate analysis, instead resorting to vague statements about motives and mottos.

    The facts are available to anyone with a modicum of math skills and a copy of the Mary Kay compensation plan. One doesn’t need to be on the inside to see that 99% of reps lose money in this scheme. In fact, the view is a fair bit clearer from the outside.

    But critic, this site has plenty of conttibutions from former Directors who used to drive Cadillacs; they well know what goes on behind the curtain. Maybe you should try listening to those who know more than you do.

  2. Kristen

    Does she realize that Pink Truth is about Mary Kay? Because it seemed like she forgot about halfway through her diatribe and switched to trying to convert Tracy. I do not believe that this writer was a sales director. She’s a prime example of how Mary Kay will zero in on someone who is spiritual and start using it to their advantage. Heck, half the work has already been done for them. I’m not knocking spirituality. I’m a believer. But we have to be careful because corrupt individuals will use this to their advantage. I don’t want my company or boss bringing my spirituality into my job. That’s my business. The very idea that Mary Kay uses God as part of their company motto is manipulative, not the wonderful thing about them.

    “Mary Kay Ash’s God given dream to be utilized as a tool in hopes of changing women’s lives ” Mary Kay Ash wanted to found a business where she would be the top person – thats all.

    1. Mountaineer95

      Lol you know it. MKA was nothing more than a shrewd businessperson who found a way to get rich while convincing those making her rich that they were getting rich as well.

      Nothing more (except possibly that she was one of the earliest and most successful people to do so) and nothing less. Just a user. And yet so many “modern women” (like the sad case who supplied us our laughs today) don’t get that they’re being conned…everyday and in every way, by both MK Corp and MK Directors.

      I cannot imagine how poorly the job outlook is for these bots that vehemently support MK. If I were still a hiring manager (and it’s been over a decade since), I’d research EVERY candidate for any of my positions and you’d better believe that this “research” would include their social media…

      …because as soon as I saw some of the business-related (but ridiculously unprofessional) posts…like the slumber party hotel room where the director who couldn’t attend was present as a photo of her taped to a stick held by the two IBCs in the pic..I’d move that candidate’s resume to the trash. Or shredder. Or a trash-collecting shredder.

          Lazy Gardens: “Mary Kay Ash’s God given dream to be utilized as a tool in hopes of changing women’s lives ”
          Well, having been listening to So What by Pink quite a lot lately, as she says about the ex — And you’re a tool. lololol yes, yes indeedy, MK Ash IS DEFINITELY A TOOL

  4. Destiny Angel

    “There is no need for any confrontation about details, the only thing that really matters is, Do you know Jesus Christ as your Best Friend?”

    I would hope my best friend would gently take me aside and tell me in plain English that I was being mislead. That they would show me how toxic people are. Show me their social media where they lie, where they brag about stealing and minimize it by calling it a life hack. A friend. a true friend would do that.

    Jesus after all was the one who braided a scourge and sent the moneylenders and other traders fleeing from His Father’s house. As an atheist, I don’t think either God or Jesus would support the deceit and theft that MK allows to permeate almost unchecked through all levels of the company.

  5. Mountaineer95

    Blah blah blah, if you think PT isn’t “true”, then please provide facts and proof that counter the recent front page post here about how few Pink Caddy Directors there are and how little income they make. Or really, choose any of the posts here about earnings, which are BACKED UP BY PROOF, and prove how they are wrong.

    1. Mountaineer95

      Dear down-voting Kaybot: you seem to have missed the entire point of this comment. PROVE OUR NUMBERS WRONG. Any of them. Once you do that, you’ve earned the privilege to downvote everything your little heart desires. Until then, it’s put up or shut up.

    1. NayMKWay

      Going out on a limb, but I’m guessing self-published. Her writing “style” is enough to send any legitimate editor into convulsions.

      I mean, I dare anyone to diagram her opening sentence.

      1. Mountaineer95

        Yeah, my crazy Uncle has “self-published” a five hundred page science fiction novel. And he’s a Jehovah’s Witness (no offence if any of you are Witnesses)…so everything he writes factors that in. He mailed me a copy just before thanksgiving, and texted me two days ago to ask if I’ve read it yet. Lol, I have not. How can I read an actual book when I spend all my time on my iPad reading Pink Truth?

      2. Mountaineer95

        Forgot to add that as an English Major, I diagramed a *#$&-ton of sentences. Like sentences that took over an entire chalkboard (apparently dry erase boards weren’t a common thing in the early 90s) to the point that I could do it in my sleep.

        But I ain’t touching that sentence lol.

      1. Juliet

        lolololol you cracked me up alright, with “Wonder if He’ll publish it, too.” lolololol just thinking how hard it is to get a legitimate book published, and how unwelcomed the self-published tomes are, lolololol.

    2. Mountaineer95

      A downvote? lol ok. Let us know what you think after you’ve read her novel.

      And no, she doesn’t get pity points (oh, she comes from a poor background, blah blah blah) that excuse her absolute slaughter of the English language and its common practices.

      Anyone, and I do mean anyone, can learn what’s appropriate and what’s not in written American English. Just professing the “need” to write a book does not a skilled author make.

      Those who are saddled with the responsibility of reading this “book” (If it does happen) are the ones who can tell us all about it, saving us from having to actually read the thing. They are our heroes.

    The Jesus aspect and all of the proselytizing are part of why I left MK. If there was hate in my heart, it was from that. If you didn’t have a Christian view of EVERYTHING, you were treated quite differently. I don’t want you or those like you to pray for me. Just don’t.

  7. Kristen

    “I bind up your hurt and loose freedom in Christ”

    “Forgiveness is a powerful thing, when you loose forgiveness, you are in turn forgiven and all that has you bound is loosed.”

    WTF does this mean? Even if she’s trying to say “lose forgiveness”, why would anyone want to do that? Does she mean “choose forgiveness”? Also “loose freedom in Christ” sounds like some kind of a sin. Aye aye aye.

    1. Juliet

      From Kristen-WTF does this mean? Even if she’s trying to say “lose forgiveness”,
      I believe she would be better off saying LOOSEN or release. Loosen the hate that prevents your forgiving another. Release the power of forgiveness in your heart. Either one is WAY BETTER than what they wrote.

        1. Juliet

          lol thank you Nay!! I so appreciate your presence, you have such, what I would define as “arcane”, knowledge, and that is what I love to learn. My dad was filled with more bits of knowledge than the wacky aunt’s box of “pieces of string too small to use” had strings!

          As you say it is CORRECT English, I will agree, but I disagree with so much of correct English lololol, but as always, hearing the full length of the statement makes all the difference. “Loose the bonds” is perfectly understandable but “loose forgiveness” is also as weird as
          what Kristen pointed out. “Loose the bonds trapping the flow of forgiveness within your heart” – lot more words, I am sure it could be more succinct, but at least I am not rofl with how this pastor’s wife is preaching the opposite of her meanings if people don’t sit around parsing out what she likely actually meant.

        2. Data Junkie

          I in no way endorse the form of Christianity promoted by the PT critic above, as I think folks like this do more harm than good for the faith.

          However, she is simply using “loose” in the verb form as found in some Bible translations:

          “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:19 NIV.

    1. NayMKWay

      To me, it reads very much like someone trying to write beyond their education. I’ve seen it a lot (in spoken form) in TV shows like Judge Judy, where an uneducated individual throws extra flourish in their speech to sound more erudite.

      Instead of a simple “then,” they say “what had then happened was.” because they think it sounds formal rather than pointlessly wordy.

      1. Mountaineer95

        “extra flourish”

        Is that kind of like “flair”? Like, back in 2008-2009 when we were first on Facebook and we could “award” one another with “flair”? My old hard drive from that time is long gone, but I’d love to resurrect that flair somehow.

  8. Pinkiu

    I have been a pastor and am married to a pastor. I can tell you from scripture that God does not bless or honor deceit, which is the foundation of ALL mlms. For instance:

    Psalm 101:7
    No one who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no one who utters lies shall continue before my eyes.

    Romans 16:18
    For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.

    Colossians 3:9-10
    Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.

    Mary Kay SDs and NSDs are full of deceit. How do I know? I was an IBC for years (choosing not to go into DIQ) and have witnessed first-hand how the entire mlm process is all about deceiving people about the opportunity all in the name of increasing their own bank account. Consider how your SD answers when asked about projected income claims or why having a “full store” is so necessary when a new recruit doesn’t yet know who her customer base will be. Consider how many SDs fill out the initial order form for a new recruit loading her with soon to be discontinued items or packaging changes or seasonal items that we all know don’t sell well. Why? Because the recruiter/SD gets a cha-ching in their bank account.

    At our church, members are not allowed to use any aspect of our property for mlm business. While we have some people who still engage in various mlms, it’s discouraged. God does NOT look at MK as a means of salvation.

    If you do not believe us about the culture of deceit and mlms, just spend some time reading through Pink Truth. There is an overwhelming amount of articles and discussion posts that share first-hand evidence of the deceitful practices of Mary kay.

    1. Char

      ”first-hand evidence”

      Right on! I absolutely agree with evidence aka proof, facts, math, science. But something isn’t jiving here: “I have been a pastor and am married to a pastor.” Isn’t that preaching “faith” and belief without evidence? (Rhetorical) This author genuinely believes in Mary Kay, and genuinely believes she’s had a calling from God. Her letter reads like a church sermon.

      “I can tell you from scripture that God does not bless or honor deceit….Psalms, Romans, Colossians.” Since we’re quoting, I like this one:

      Matthew 7:2-5
      “Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye“

      *My post is solely about hypocrisy.

    I need to get down to my tasks for the day lol which Pink Truth is first, of course, but I really ranted today 🙂

    #1 – I hesitated to ever call myself a Christian because of the HORRIBLE connotations that the word too often engenders, and believe me, I am one who cannot accept anyone’s statements of being a “church person” as being representative of NICE PERSON. QUITE…..THE….OPPOSITE. As a victim of horrible spiritual abuse, it is a triumph to know Jesus as I do and to call myself a Christian fills me with ecstatic joy, but that is INTERNALLY. Christians have ruined the word………….

    #2 – MK Ash was a fraud in every way so of course her business has to be fraudulent as it came from her.
    Wake up, people. Look at it. You don’t INVEST IN YOUR OWN BUSINESS, you are paying MKcorpse for the privilege of buying products even you can’t use, due to quantity if not dislike of the product, and that is NOT investing. That’s senseless buying. PLEASE TAKE A BUSINESS COURSE. Even one course could transform your life and set you free.

    I learned about Jesus Christ long before I joined Mary Kay and when I joined I was so happy that the company’s motto was “God first”. Sadly, I never saw God in anything that happened in Mary Kay. Chicago was full of back-stabbing and gossiping. It was treacherous. God was nowhere to be found.
