Cost of Mary Kay to Individual: $200
Experience With Mary Kay: I was a server at a restaurant, and one day was serving a table of four MK directors.
I didn’t think much of it, just some red-jacket-wearing, humongous-hair-styling, plaster-faced ladies.
At the end of the meal, one of the women handed me her card and complimented me numerous times. She then asked if I would like to get together for a pampering session, and again, without much thought, gave her my contact information and went on with my day.
Sadly, I don’t remember how much they tipped me. I’m sure that they did, because they probably just charged the meals on their MK Visas and figured “Why not? I’m already $20,000 in debt already”. Besides, if they left great tips, I would be more likely to attend the pampering session, win-win for everyone. Oh, the irony. Lose-lose for everyone.
To make a very long story short, I got sucked into the entire selling thing with promises of “great profit!” and other such conniving lines.
I quickly realized, through Pink Truth (www.pinktruth.com) that MK is not what it seems to be.
Everyone must break free from MK, especially before you’ve even gotten roped into it.
Luckily, I only lost around $200, but there are many less fortunate who have lost tens, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Not only that, marriages, family relationships, and friendships have been destroyed from MK.
I am so glad I got out by confirming my suspicions — the night that I figured out MK was an MLM scam, I Googled “Is Mary Kay a Scam?” Always follow your hunches.
