I personally enjoyed it and I do use some of Mary Kay’s products now 🙂 I thought they do tell you that you can bring bridesmaids and stuff and make it a group affair? At least that’s what they told me when they called.

They didn’t trick you.  You did get a facial, correct?  They never said it was an individual session.

@Shoshota:  I’m confused… what were you tricked about?  Did you not win something?

Ugh. I did NOT sign up for a Mary Kay facial when I went to David’s Bridal, but they sold my information to a rep anyway. She’s called me a few times and it’s SUPER annoying.  

I used to sell Mary Kay and now have quite an aversion to their practices and product.

Yeah I don’t get how they tricked you either, you got a facial out of it which is what you won…

@bells219:  David’s Bridal will sell your info to everyone.  After I made the mistake of giving my correct info, I went online and moved my wedding date from June to this past February, hoping that maybe the calls and emails would stop (it seems to have worked).  I even got a call from Men’s Warehouse, who mentioned getting my info from David’s.  The caller then just came out and said she wanted to schedule the tux fittings, no asking about our needs or seeing if I was interested.  Ummmm . . .  maybe I don’t want to use MW, and have the tux situation reserved elsewhere (in our case, there aren’t any MW near our venue, but I just found it odd and rude).

@Shoshota:  I can understand how you felt tricked.  I got the same “You’re SUCH A LUCKY BRIDE!!!” phone call, but being that I used to be the one selling, I knew what it was.  

There is a reason behind their philosophy of only have you apply the makeup, but because you’re the one doing it, I certainly wouldn’t call it a “pampering facial.”   It’s more like a “Free access to samples of colors that probably won’t work for you,” kind of facial.

@Shoshota:  I don’t see how you were tricked, but feel free to vent. Telling others to stop commenting though, usually doesn’t work, as it’s the internet and everyone is free to give their opinion.  You can ask for a mod to close the thread though, if it really bothers you.

I get how you were tricked, the same way my friend was. Thought it was something alot more upscale then it was. Pretty much you had a session with a mary kep sales  lady, did your own facial which was 1 scrub on your face, put this scrub on your hands, and applied makeup on yourself with ugly colors. My friend  “won”  that and a group of us went and we thought we were getting facials and a bunch of cool stuff. It ended up being at this ladys house which was filled with her grandkids, smelt gross and was super dirty. I was disgusted! I didn’t do half the stuff bc I wanted to get the heck out of there.  I think it’s a gimmick they do to up their sales. It sucks!

David’s bridal gave my number to Mary Kay and whatever their men’s store is. It’s not really a facial like you might be thinking, basically you won the chance to have a Mary Kay party at your house. Which you could do at any time regardless of if you “won a contest” lol
