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

Pink Truth is Sick

It is amusing that women who are so “positive” and “fulfilled” through their Mary Kay Cosmetics experience can hurl such insults and threats at us. Gosh, if we’re so horrible, why do they want to stoop down to our level? Check out the advice for us from this happy and loving Mary Kay consultant…

This site is SICK. At least half the comments are from individuals that are STILL in MK, have been to Seminar, and go to meetings. Are you people really that sick to be involved in something and hate and criticize it at the same time? If you hate it so much (i.e. weren’t successful in MK and are a raving, jealous lunatic) then get a different life (outside of this demented website) and forget about those of us that are successfully helping women who are THANKFUL for an opportunity, any opportunity, that has helped to change their circumstances. My life was changed, and why is that such a problem for you people? Oh, yeah, because you are insane.

Women have commented that they placed huge orders and didn’t sell the products because they were too embarrassed to tell anyone about Mayr Kay. Ok, then you are just a bitter, pathetic dumb a$$ for complaining, and for being “talked into buying it” in the first place. What does that say about you? You didn’t have a mind enough of your own to make your own choices NOT to invest, if you had no intention of doing anything with it to begin with?

Wow. The deranged, maniacal rantings on this evil-breeding site are just one example of the sickness existing in this world today. Ya’ll need to get over all your anger and hatred, and get over YOURSELVES, before one of you finds yourself in a nut house. Seriously.

I was just curious about this site, because I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Now I am just in shock, but outside of that emotion, completely unaffected by your rantings and evil.

This company has been around for more than 50 years. It is solid. IF they were unethical or a MLM, as you call refer to it in your cybergossip, they would have been shut down. How come you don’t attack Avon, or Tupperware? Other successful Direct Marketing companies? Oh, yeah, because you are evil and any mention of GOD scares the crap out of you, and makes you run like scalded dogs. Or perhaps it’s that you were unsuccessful, and need to place blame somewhere other than on yourselves for your failure in the company. You just keep up the good work – and leave room for those of us who are actually successful.

    “Oh, yeah, because you are evil and any mention of GOD scares the crap out of you, and makes you run like scalded dogs. ”

    Oh my goodness, I needed this laugh today. I’m an atheist not a Chick Tract demon. Talking about God doesn’t scare anything out of me. Not even an eyeroll.

    And sadly, not even being a true believer stops people from committing crimes/sins. Just look at the number of pastors, priests and other religious leaders who have been charged with theft, sexual abuse, domestic violence and child molestation.

    She claims to be “completely unaffected” by us, yet she takes the time to write all that up. Since you’re “actually successful”, please tell us what your gross commissions were for 2021.

    We’ll wait right here.

    (I’m betting she’s no more than a Senior Consultant. She’s deep in it and has convinced herself and a team member or two and now is regurgitating what her Director says so she can morph into a Red Jacket.)

    PS—It’s mighty daring of you to criticize those of us who actually were in suits and those of us who love God. He is the whole reason I’m on here because I was helped by posts I saw and hope to return the favor.

    Still waiting for that commission total.

    I still think we ought to save these critics some time and give them a prepopulated form to fill out which allows them to criticize us and have extra time for warm chatting and stalking.

    Dear Pink Truth,

    You are all a bunch of (check all that apply):
    -bitter haters
    -lazy loosers
    -pathetic failures
    -negative nellies
    -gullible victims

    I concluded (without taking the time to read much on Pink Truth) that you:
    -didn’t work your business
    -blamed others for your failure
    -didn’t believe in God
    -had the unusual experience of working under an unethical director
    -have no life

    I’m not going to research this, but I want to educate and reassure you that there’s no way Mary Kay is a pyramid scheme because:
    -it’s been around like fifty years!
    -it’s taught at Harvard!
    -those are illegal!
    -it would have been shut down if it was
    -My director said that it wasn’t

    I recommend that you:
    -get a life and move on
    -take some accountability
    -realize that there appear to be thousands of women who are succeeding
    -all of the above

    In closing, I want to remind you that:
    -Mary Kay has changed my life
    -I’m selling an unspecified amount but I’m not sure what the number is
    -This site has not affected me at all
    -I am busy helping women and not tearing them down
    -all of the above

      Love this but one more.

      I’m not sharing proof of my profit that I’ve made in Mary Kay because:
      I lost it
      The dog ate it
      Mary kay is so wonderful that they don’t expect us to show what we sell.

        “I’m not sharing proof of my profit”

        Just have “faith” that it’s true.

        That word is the con artist’s best friend. Just think, the cons never have to provide any proof of anything. Not only that, but the person who has been victimized goes around bragging they have strong faith. It’s brilliant.

          Ooh okay, I want to play along. Here’s mine:

          1) you are all a bunch of pathetic failures;
          2) I concluded that you blame others for your failures;
          3) I’m not going to research this, but I want to educate and reassure you that there’s no way Mary Kay is a pyramid scheme because it would have been shut down if it was;
          4) I recommend that you:
          -get a life and move on
          -take some accountability
          -realize that there appear to be thousands of women who are succeeding
          5) In closing, I want to remind you that I am busy helping women and not tearing them down

          That was so much fun!

      Why is it supposed to be a selling point that Mary Kay (or any MLM company) is debt free? How does that do you or any would-be MLM salesperson any good? Because, trust me, you personally will not be debt free after getting involved with Mary Kay or any MLM. I’ve seen that sort of thing mentioned with Amway, NuSkin, Shaklee, Lularoe, Arbonne and countless other MLM’s. That, and their supposedly high Dun & Bradstreet ratings. WHO CARES? How does that matter to anyone getting involved with them?

      Please don’t bother wasting your breath on any prayers for those of us who despise ANY type of multi-level marketing, possibly the most fundamentally flawed concept in the world.

    “At least half the comments are from individuals that are STILL in MK…”

    Um, no. No one reading the articles and comments on this site for more than a few minutes could possibly come to this conclusion. If you’re going to just make up “facts” about Pink Truth, why should we pay any attention to what you have to say?

    Other than for entertainment purposes, of course. Your “deranged, maniacal rantings” gave me a nice chuckle, so thanks for that.

    (For the record, I have never been in Mary Kay or any other MLM.)

    Actually successful? Show me a copy of your W-2 (private info blotted out) and I will believe you. It’s extremely doubtful that if you added all the hours spent prepping for appointments, driving time, holding facials/classes, meetings, MK events, etc and divided by your MK income, you made more than minimum wage, if that. Your minuscule income without any medical benefits, paid time off, or long term savings sadly foretell a pathetic future tied to the Mary Kay wheel.

    Good luck with that.

      Personally, I’m not interested in how much, or how little, this person makes as a pyramid schemer.

      If she were to present a profitable Schedule C, it would only prove her a successful con artist pyramid schemer. She would be proving to us that she’s a skilled liar willing to take advantage of friends, family, and struggling women to line her own pockets. No thanks.

    2. Mountaineer95

      I guarantee that when she brags about her successful MK “business” to others, it’s always a success story; but when she meets with her tax preparer and/or her divorce attorney about alimony/child support, it’s nothing but “loss after loss after loss”.

    Writer, what “level” in MK are you? How long have you been in? How much have you “invested” in your “business”? Do you understand that your opinions and attacks will hold more weight if you’ve “been in”? Any comments/attacks/opinions will only hold weight here if you’ve attained some level of “success” in MK.

    You say “At least half the comments (here) are from individuals that are STILL in MK, have been to Seminar, and go to meetings.” Lol lady, do you understand how, if that (made up) statistic (of half) is true, it provides strong validation to the comments you read here, as opposed to the flippant and uneducated comments from someone like YOU (who has little to no experience in MK)?

    *sigh* You are just another dime-a-dozen Friday commenter who is NOTHING in the MK food chain. You should feel honoured that your comment was even posted here…but before you start thinking that you are more special or have more insight than anyone else, rest assured that are not and do not. You are just being used as an example of how completely clueless and ignorant so many people can be.

    If you truly want to make any kind of impact with your words, get an MK Director to supply you with actual evidence that counters anything written here.

    Until then, celebrate how awesome you are to have “made it” onto the PT Front Page.

      Also: “This company has been around for more than 50 years.” True; MK Corporate has been around for more than fifty years. But tell us, wise one, how many IBCs have “been around” for even FIVE years? How many have been around for TEN years? How many DIRECTORS have been around for over twenty years? Thirty years?

      You might be able to list on two hands (and count your toes too, just for giggles) how many INDEPENDENT Mary Kay ladies (ie NOT corporate employees) have “been around” for thirty plus years. Your lesson to learn here is that Mary Kay Corporate =/= Mary Kay “independent sales force”. MK Corp has been around for 50 years because of the millions of Mary Kay independent contractors who buy the products that Corporate is selling.

    “Women have commented that they placed huge orders and didn’t sell the products because they were too embarrassed to tell anyone about Mayr Kay.”

    Really? I read here all the time and I don’t recall posts that women were too embarrassed to tell anyone about MK. Please list the posts that stated this.

    What we usually read here is that women placed a huge order because of being manipulated by their SD. And…many had success selling to their warm market (family and friends). But once their warm market dried up, they were stuck with a large amount of products that no one wanted or were shades of makeup that were not their primary demographic

    One of the new Star prizes is a $24 Cuisinart cheese board. It’s also on Overstock, assuming even cheaper. $1,800 spent to get a board that apparently, according to the reviews, breaks when you open it.

    My, MK, you haven’t changed a bit.
