I was a Mary Kay consultant–these “pampering parties” are just sales pitches–they want you to not only purchase their products but also want to recruit you to become a Mary Kay consultant.  I would suggest canceling.

Sorry Mittens!!! 

You will win something someday–I just hope it has nothing to do with Mary Kay.  πŸ™‚

David’s sells your information to all kinds of other places – prepare yourself, and don’t be afraid to cut them off right from the beginning and ask that they remove you from their list.  You didn’t win any contests; you’re just being recruited to attend a sales pitch.  πŸ™

Yea- I have been dodging the Mary-Kay lady for months…I won, but I dont want the party or any part of it.

She was reaaaaaaaaaaaalllllly hard to get rid of.

These women are basically told to “stalk” you because eventually they will break you down.  They make their money by selling product and recruiting women to become “beauty consultants” and what better place is there to find women than bridal salons and wedding expos?! 

I can saw soo much more but this isn’t a bash Mary Kay consultants thread!  πŸ™‚

Meh – I “won” the same thing and went, knowing it was a sales pitch.  I was new to the area so none of my friends were nearby so I just went alone.  I listened to the pitch, got to test the Satin Hands/Satin Lips (which I did buy but I already knew I liked the stuff before I ever got there), got my make-up done and got some free Mary Kay make-up out of the deal.

Just because you go to the sales pitch doesn’t mean you HAVE to buy anything, then or later.  Go, enjoy the testing, and take your free stuff!

its like the cruise you win from celebrity china and theres another one i cant remember though. they call and say congrats you won and exclusive blah blah blah….always ask how many other brides won. if 1 is not the answer tell them to shove it because its a “come sit through our speach, buy our crap then you get a junky prize that a million other people got…” its just a scam

I *won* one of these once too, but I actually enjoyed it. My saleslady wasn’t pushy at all (she’s in the minority, I know), but rather really helpful. I learned a bunch about skincare and makeup application that I didn’t know and I really liked the stuff I ended up buying. My friends and I had a great time.
