Tried their makeup and broke out in stinging welts. No thanks. No problem with Revlon.

Haha...That was my bruhaha with Mary Kay back in 1991. Most of these companies avoid the "P" word (pyramid) like the plague. They insist they are anything and everyting other than a pyramid. I worked for the US Small Business Administration out of the Springfield, Missouri Branch Office, recieved a loan application, and made a determination that Mary Kay was a pyramid business, despite their protestations to the contrary, and pyramid businesses are not eligible for SBA loans. Up to that point, Mary Kay "consultants" had gotten a ton of small SBA loans all over the country. Anyway, Mary Kay called me up and gave me a tongue lashing and pretty much went ballistic - she was a tough lady. She appealed my decision, which ended up going to Washington for review by the agency legal staff. They concurred with my analysis, and SBA loans to Mary Kay folks stopped...

Only 3 percent of the people in this country make over 300,000$ a year.
Most of the women that do make over 300,000 a year are Mary Kay consultants. That is a remarkable number of women that have used this sales pitch to become wealthy.
Now I have never purchased any of her makeup. So cannot attest to how cheap it is. Not saying I have no flaws but I am not as handsome as Faceman and have resigned myself to being the second or third best looking guy around. STG may be number 2. But, that is debateable. Shalom

Yearling
Just ran across this thread and have to say that I began using the skin care products back in the early 90's and found a rep who became sort of a mentor to me in those days since she was a retired teacher and we had so much in common. At that time my skin condition improved tremendously, even had random people at work comment on how good it looked. Never much liked their makeup, though. Now at my age there are much better products out there for skin care, and yes they cost much more than Mary Kay but it is one thing that I splurge on other than my animals. Still use their microdermabrasion and mineral eye shadow, that's it. Hate their foundation!

Their products are ok. Never really used the makeup so I won't comment on that but the skin care stuff was fine.

I HATE how they push, push, push their salespeople until they quit or turn into demons from hell that chase you down and harass you into buying and then selling their stuff. The director of my kiddo's preschool banned the snotty, horrid Mary Kay consultants from bringing products, mentioning Mary Kay, offering makeovers or anything even remotely connected with Mary Kay after some things they said to me that she overheard.

Only thing I really use from MK is the skin care stuff. Its pretty much the only product I've found that doesn't make me break out worse. None of the MK consultants I've dealt with have been pushy at all. I know some that have done wonderfully with it and others that are in it just for the discount to get themselves the products.

I personally sell Thirty-One and Origami Owl. I'm not in those to make money though. I use it as a tool to meet people (and have made some great friends this way) and getting out of the house on a regular basis (I am a WAHM) and of course the discounts .
