New Blog to focus on Pink Truth

Hi all!

Thank you mk4me for the kind words and the great posts.  I would like to announce a new blog.

This blog is hosted by one of our readers - Michelle - and will have a link (along with a quick summary) to whatever Pink Truth is posting.  Not sure at this point if it will be updated daily, weekly or what, but it should be pretty current.

The blog can be found here -

The idea here will be that this blog can stay focused on discussing Mary Kay as questions and thoughts arise.  The blog that Michelle is hosting will be for responding to things that Pink Truth is saying.

If you have no desire to be weighed down with the garbage on Pink Truth, you can stay here and help keep this community alive.

But if you enjoy occasionally picking a fight, or if you are just frustrated that no one gets to respond to Pink Truth and want to speak your mind, give this new blog a visit.

Hopefully this will keep the two concepts separate, but give room for both of them.

Thanks Michelle.

What can I expect?


momof8 said...
I am so glad I found this blog site. Would you please tell me exactly what to expect if I decide to sell MK? I know the cost of the starter kit. What else is there? Do I get a set of make-up for me--if I'm to be wearing it from "head to toe?" Is the name tag included? and the decal? These sound like relatively inexpensive details, but I can't afford anything unnecessary to begin. I've been out of the country for many years and we're needing income. What exactly can I expect at the beginning?

The starter kit will give you what you need to begin your business... the only thing I feel need extra to start presenting the product are cotton balls. When joining the Company does have the 50 free business cards but after that, the business starter kit which varies in price is a great thing to have, you get business cards, the reorder labels, a stamper with your information on it, and a magnetic name bade (I believe that kits start approx. $39.99) - this is optional not mandatory. The Mary Kay website is a nice option and as a new consultant you get it for half price for the first year so that would only be $25 - but if you wish not to do this, people can still go to to see everything on line. To process credit cards, there is a fee for propay but if you only do a cash or check business, you would not need add this expense or could add it when you wanted to make paying with credit or debit cards an option.

What can you expect?? There is no definites. Other than if you sell a liptsick for $13 and purchased it from Mary Kay for $6.50, you have earned $6.50.

No, you would not get a set for yourself... however if you sell $200 worth of products, to cover the initial order, you get to select $400 worth of products, so after you order everything your clients needed, you in theory, could then select $200 worth of items you wanted and it would be covered.

Hope this helps, if I misunderstood, just leave me a comment and I will expand on this!

Thinking About Rejoining?


A great question from one of our readers: I did MK for about 1.5 years quite a while ago and really enjoyed it, but I also see how people can have bad experiences and need to keep a healthy, balanced perspective. I went inactive/terminated in 2003, so if I wanted to be a personal use consultant at this point, I'd need to start all over right? I'd really just like product for myself at the discount and have no need for the starter kit. Is the $20 deal the right one for me? Thanks again for your helpful site.

My answer is yes, you would need to rejoin and maybe on the choice, lol. Let's break it down with the November special. If you use the miracle set, mineral poweder foundation/brush, oil free eye makeup remover, and mascara... even at cost those items would come to $76. With the starter kit for $75 - you would receive all of those items plus Look Books, mirror & trays, and lots of other products, you could sell, give away, donate to a woman's center, whatever... and then in six months or so when you need more products, then put in your product order.... or for the $20 second chance opportunity, you get catalogues and some misc. stuff.. and then you could place a minimum order to get all the times you would like.

So, it boils down to if you use all of the proudcts, I think the starter kit would be the way to go with the special, if you use velocity, or don't use the miracle set, or the products you get in the starter kit, then go with the second chance! Either way, imho, it is a win/win for you if you love the products!
