lolol a thread right up my alley. I fucking hate that shit.

My most hated ones are the younique mascara. I’m sorry, but it looks like you just caked on 19 layers of mascara. Oh wait, it’s because you still did, and added some shit in the middle. You don’t need expensive shit to look that bad.

Eyelashes aren’t supposed to be cakey spider legs! Say no to spider lashes!

I briefly (about 6 months) was a distributor for It Works and now am so mortified to think about it in retrospect! I was totally on board with the products and still believe in some of them, but I can’t imagine how irritating I must have been to everyone. Yuck. The people in It Works are a special kind of special, too.
I do have a friend that sells doTerra and eventually plan to purchase some items from her, but she is the most non-marketing type MLM distributor I’ve ever met.

I do have to agree that lularoe is annoying and being automatically added to a party (of any kind) on Facebook is beyond frustrating.DHs coworkers wife is a consultant (so are 2 of their neighbors) and is constantly inviting me to shit. When I went to one and went into her spare bedroom it was from floor to ceiling of clothes. I seriously do not understand how they make money (he has told Darling Husband it is costing them) and can’t see that going anywhere.

However, I don’t believe all mlm’s are the same. I’m sure I’ll get a lot of shit on here for saying this, but oh well. I know several very successful and intelligent MEN and women who are involved with a particular company and I can guarantee you that they make more money than 80% of the people on here bitching about them….because the products work. The ones who are constantly blowing up fb are not the ones making money…

MLMs are the work of the devil. Seriously. You make your money off of suckering your friends and family, then getting them to sign up more suckers. You can call it a triangle or an inverted diamond or whatever makes you feel better, but if the money flows from a lot of people at the base on up to a few people at the top, then it’s a pyramid and it’s unethical and it really should be illegal.

chigirl217bride :  Yeah my bff and I were in the same sorority, so 100 of the same women all in 5 MLMs selling to eachother.  It’s literal hell.  And then they dm and act like they wanna say hi, and bam they go in for the ask.  We came up with the plan to start responding, “hey so good to hear from you.  Seems like the only time anyone reaches out anymore is to sell me something.”  haha!!

brereuther :  Ugh can we also talk about those “fitness coaches” peddling their 21 day fix and shakeology crap. No I don’t want to join your group so you can guide me to my best body. And why do most of them look like they’ve never stepped foot in a gym?!?!?!

I think the ones I hate the most are the ‘financial planning’ ones like World Financial Group. At least with the other ones, you get a product for your money (if you chose to buy).

ksn1219 :  This “particular company” is not the one you are involved with, is it? Because if it is aren’t you just indirectly shilling here? Of course you are going to say “it is not like all the others”. Spoiler: it is.

Ugh I know a girl who thinks advocare is going to make her RICH! I had to hide her on facebook and block her from inviting/tagging me.  Absolutely will not see it for what it is. It’s like she has been brainwashed.
