@missjewels:  I sold it… or rather tried to in college and I ended up with a lot of extra stuff when I realized it wasn’t worth it.  I still buy Mary Kay from a friend for the items I like, but I will never sell again. 

If you sell, do not get a starter kit.  You don’t need it.  Your customers will wait the week it takes for the product to ship to you.  You do not need to start with stock on hand.  Your support system is as good as who you report to.  If they tell you it’s easy, they’re trying to get you in and will probably pressure you into buying $500 worth of “stock product.”

I don’t hate the company and I still use a lot of their products, I just have a lot of issues with their business model.

I like MK and I think they have a lot of good products.  Like any business, I think a lot of what you get out of it depends on what you put into it.  I was thinking of selling MK myself because I wanted the 50% discount 🙂 so I’ve done quite a bit of research.  Again, I don’t think it’s all good or all bad, but I think a lot of the recruiters and reps misrepresent what it is.  If anyone wants info visit, pinklighthouse.com and pinktruth.com.

look up pinkpyramid.com I believe is what its called.


I’ve sold a lot of direct sales in my lifetime, i had considered them, but I agree with one of the PP that said their business model is not that great. They promise a lot…very few make what they promise.  FTR not all direct sales companies are like this.


That being said, I LOVE their 3 n one moisturizer and eye makeup remover lol

I was in Mary Kay for 2 years. I was in and out of Director qualification and car qualification twice. PM me for all my thoughts.

Meh. Two of my coworkers sell it and are constantly inviting me to events like muffins and makeovers or happy hours. I have very little interest as the makeup is REALLY expensive and I’m already pretty happy with the brands I use (Sephora’s organic line, Tarte and Clinique).
