A reader named Marie sent this message describing her experience as a guest at a Mary Kay meeting.
I appreciate your website as well as others who feel the same as I do. I was invited to a MK meeting/skin care. Was made to take off personal makeup to try MK products. I looked terrible/like a stuffed pig, colors were not for me. When the meeting leader showed me a huge case of products that she unrolled,retail to me over $200, I guess I gave her the impression I was not interested, she slammed it on the table.
I was told the next step was to have a personal meeting with the consultant who invited me there. I did meet at her home. She gave me a makeover, much like the one at the meeting. This lasted 2 hrs, when applying the makeup was only supposed to take 15 mins. Needless to say I never purchased MK products & ran as fast as I could from there. It was all very CREEPY!
P.S. There was a story in my local paper this week about a lady who was picking up her pink cadillac. She had been getting a new one every few yrs for 30 years. I guess it is possible to do that, although I wonder what the numbers actually say, & at what expense to others.
