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

Become an Agent of Change

This critic thinks we should become agents of change. Little does she know, we’ve been doing exactly that for 16+ years. We’ve been educating women on the truth of Mary Kay, and that’s some change I can really get excited about.

I am sure you all well blast me on your website and make fun of me, if you even read this, but I feel sorry for all of you.

You know its kind of sad to read your website. If the women on this site spent half of their energy building a business the way Mary Kay Ashe did, instead of dissing what the ones doing wrong are doing, they would be really successful. The actual truth is most people want to live in a little shell and have money just come to them without having to work for it.

I am SO glad I finally went with MK products. I do it my own way, and only what I feel will bless others. I enjoy not having to stand in wal mart or target searching through tons of goop to figure out what will work. I enjoy not being ripped off by the department stores. I am happy to know that MK does not test on animals. I think it’s great that our products are safe and scientifically tested.

I think the fellowship of women is a blast! No I am not going to go broke trying to work for MK, but excel making MK work for me, the way that Mary Kay, who was told by all the men advisors in 1963 that she would never make it.

yes I think MK needs to go back to there founding principles, and yes i think your website is mean spirited.

I feel really bad if you were hurt by someone doing this , and I think that if you would become an agent of change instead of an agent of anger you could really do something special.

    In today’s world of internet reviews, few of us are searching through tons of goop in Target and Walmart, plus we know which drugstore and department store products are worth the money. Plus most online retailers have generous return policies versus having to deal with a moody Independent Beauty Consultant getting butthurt that money is being taken out of their own wallet. Try again, sweetie.

    We are not going to make fun of you or blast you, we are going to debunk some if not all of your claims.

    You know its (sic) kind of sad to read your website.

    What is sad is reading the screenshots of women desperately trying to Find a Way, Make a Way and get those sales. And the lies that their uplines and competitors tell them to get that elusive customer to make that all important purchase or better still become another cog in the pink wheel.

    If the women on this site spent half of their energy building a business the way Mary Kay Ashe did, instead of dissing what the ones doing wrong are doing, they would be really successful. The actual truth is most people want to live in a little shell and have money just come to them without having to work for it.

    I know Tracy has a successful business and I know lots of other women here have long and successful careers, so I guess we can use our free time how we please. And no, I don’t think any-one here believes in the Money Tree.

    I am SO glad I finally went with MK products. I do it my own way, and only what I feel will bless others. I enjoy not having to stand in wal mart or target searching through tons of goop to figure out what will work. I enjoy not being ripped off by the department stores.

    Personally I enjoy not being ripped off my MK, Younique, Lipsence etc. Then again I rarely wear make-up but yeah, I hate pawing through piles of stuff so I go to Sephora and put my few purchases on my daughter’s card. Some-one can profit off my purchases that way.

    I am happy to know that MK does not test on animals. I think it’s great that our products are safe and scientifically tested.

    Got some bad news for you, hun. https://veganbeautydiary.com/is-mary-kay-cruelty-free/

    MK isn’t cruelty-free. And all make-up companies have to have their products tested it’s the law not a business preference.

    I think the fellowship of women is a blast! No I am not going to go broke trying to work for MK, but excel making MK work for me, the way that Mary Kay, who was told by all the men advisors in 1963 that she would never make it.

    I’m glad you enjoy working with women, I did too when I worked. And friendship is often overlooked as the valuable resource it is for a balanced lifestyle. However if you make a profit in MK or any other MLM, most of the time it is detrimental financially to those below you in your downlines.

    yes I think MK needs to go back to there(sic) founding principles, and yes i think your website is mean spirited.

    MK’s founding principle was to make herself and her family rich and that’s is continuing to this day. The website isn’t mean spirited, unless you find objective truth to be so.

    I feel really bad if you were hurt by someone doing this , and I think that if you would become an agent of change instead of an agent of anger you could really do something special.

    Please stop with the emotion shaming, anger isn’t a negative emotion to be repressed. Anger can be a useful tool if it’s channeled into a useful goal. Slavery wouldn’t have been abolished nor would women’s suffrage happened without righteous anger.

    But the number of women and men this website have helped get out of MK and the problems surrounding the MLM model is a measure of it being an agent for change.

      “And all make-up companies have to have their products tested it’s the law not a business preference.”

      Only to sell in China, which Mary Kay chooses to do, therefore MK chooses to test on animals.

      1. Lazy Gardens

        There is a HUGE database of already tested ingredients. Products that only contain ingredients on this list do NOT have to re-test the mix. New ingredients have to be tested, and it is usually outsourced to specialist companies.

        It’s international treaty level reciprocal acceptance with a double-shot of politics – and China-USA have been negotiating the issue for a loooong time.

    instead of dissing what the ones doing wrong are doing

    It sounds to me like this critic doesn’t want the wrongs being shown to the light of the world. we are not dissing ( Aziraphale knows I hate that word!) by talking about the abuses that people in the company are perpetrating and perpetuating in order to make a handful of change on each external sale.

  4. Frosty Rose

    I was far angrier as a part of Mary Kay than I ever have been since I quit. Most of that anger was due to the fact that I wasn’t experiencing the financial freedom or success I was promised. I was stressed out, depressed, overwhelmed and exhausted. A lot of that energy manifested as anger at both my upline and my downline. After all, I was doing what I was supposed to do. If all those other people had held up their end of the bargain, I’d have made National 10 times over.

    Pink Truth is an agent of change. Since I began reading these stories, I have found a community of others who see through the lies, and that has allowed me to come to terms with what happened to me, and with what I inflicted on others (that second part is by far the hardest). And I have been able to release my anger and channel that energy towards becoming an agent of change myself.

    Pink Truth is a fellowship. We didn’t have to pay money to be here. The members of this community will not turn our backs on us because no one here is profiting from us.

    Sharing our truth and warning others and helping them get out of MK is a huge agent of change in the best possible way. We don’t judge each other. Newcomers come here and find compassion and real world help to get out of the fog.

    Because of Pink Truth I’m finally finding my way through the grief that was caused by MK. I find it hilarious when folks like you talk about the few “bad apples” who are doing it wrong and follow up with fake emotion. There are more than a few doing it wrong if a site this can be around for this long gaining new members each and every day.

    If you ever choose to liberate yourself from the abuse and cult like environment you are in by acknowledging the truth, you too, will be welcomed here. You too will be given valuable information on how to return your inventory etc.

    So the choice is yours. Be part of the problem (perpetuating MK) or be a part of the solution (helping others get out).

    “If the women on this site spent half of their energy building a business the way Mary Kay Ashe did, instead of dissing what the ones doing wrong are doing, they would be really successful.”

    Then why aren’t *you* doing it? Why are you not starting an MLM company like she did? Here’s what you need to do to be like her:

    – Be a founder of an MLM company, as in start the entire company
    – Get women to buy your products by saying it’s an opportunity
    – Call customers business owners because it sounds impressive
    – Have them work hard finding other women to buy your products; don’t salary/wage them
    – Don’t call them dupes to their face; call them sharp
    – Never let on that they are actually your customers building *your* billion dollar corporation
    – Get those duped into your scam to write into PT thinking they can compare to you. You, a brilliant con artist taking advantage of low-income women while your family enjoys a private suite at Cowboy’s Stadium.

        Claymore: the sword, or the anti-tank mine?
        Either one would be totally cool, but I’m guessing the sword.

        I can bring my air rifle! It’s accurate enough to hit a fly at 20 paces, and powerful enough to have at least a 50/50 chance of killing it.

    “If the women on this site spent half of their energy building a business the way Mary Kay Ashe did, instead of dissing what the ones doing wrong are doing, they would be really successful.”

    No MLM since the beginning of time has been able to produce a true net profit for even 1% of participants. This is not the fault of the participants. These systems are designed to produce this outcome. Sales to outside customers represents a tiny fraction of product sales in MLM. The tiny sliver turning a true profit are doing so at the expense of the 99% that must lose money.

    This is the actual design of every MLM system. Profits come from selling overpriced product to the salesforce, 99% of whom can never recover their costs. The cash flow in MLM comes primarily from the MLM sales reps, not retail customers. There is no real retail market for the product. So the only way to move product is to recruit more reps…who are the true, target customer in every MLM.
