Take Mary Kay to the next level:
In this Mary kay review video, we talk about the benifits of being a mary kay representative. I will address the marykay opportunity claims and reveal what the major problem that mary kay consultants run into. You will also get a solution to that problem.
Mary Kay, Inc. is a privately owned multi level marketing company that offers cosmetics products directly to consumers. According to Direct Selling News, Mary Kay was the sixth largest direct selling company in the world in 2014, with net sales of USD 3 billion.
Mary Kay is based in Addison, Texas, outside Dallas.
The company was created by Mary Kay Ash in 1963.
In 1968, Mary Kay Ash purchased her first Pink Cadillac, where it was repainted on site, by the dealership owner, to match the Mountain Laurel Blush in the compact.It was such a good rolling advertisement that Mary Kay Ash decided to reward her top five producers, by providing them with a Pink Cadillac paid for by the company in 1969. Pink was an obvious color choice, matching the company's eye and lip color palettes.
Mary Kay has had scam complaints and scam accusations, but to clarify the hype, Mary Kay is not a scam.
Since then at 1980, the shade used by the Mary Kay fleet has been exclusive to Mary Kay. Every two years, a Director or National Director (often referred to simply as a "National") can requalify for a new Cadillac. When the two year lease has expired, the cars are repainted, prior to being auctioned off. The shade of pink has changed over the years. In 1998, the color was changed to "pearlized pink". In honor of its 35th anniversary, the Mary Kay edition, white GMC Jimmy sport utility vehicle was offered in the United States. In 2007, top Independent Sales Directors can still earn the coveted pink Cadillac.
In 1989 the company announced a moratorium on animal testing of its products, after pressure from animal rights groups. They were among the first in their industry to do so and to sign the PETA pledge.
However, in 2012 Mary Kay returned to animal testing, because it is required by law in China for all health and beauty products. Thus Mary Kay has been removed from PETA's "Don't Test on Animals" list to the "Do Test" list.
"We do not conduct animal testing on our products or ingredients, nor ask others to do so on our behalf, except when absolutely required by law," says Crayton Webb, director of corporate communications for Mary Kay, in a statement. "There is only one country where we operate where that is the case—China."
Established in 1996, the mission of the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation is two-fold:
Committed to eliminating cancers affecting women by supporting top medical scientists who are searching for a cure for breast, uterine, cervical and ovarian cancers.
Committed to ending the epidemic of violence against women by providing grants to women's shelters and supporting community outreach programs.
In May 2006 The Foundation awarded 13 cancer research grants of $100,000 each to esteemed doctors and medical scientists in the United States. In October 2006, the Foundation awarded $20,000 grants to 150 women's shelters across the United States for a total of $3 million. Celebrities who support this organization are Jennifer Hanson, Miranda Lambert, Naomi Judd, Jewel etc.
There is no reliable data for earnings from retail sales. The quoted figure of US $1,250 per year (2010) for the average consultant was derived by dividing the annual wholesale sales by Mary Kay Corporate, by the number of consultants in Mary Kay. This figure is obviously incorrect, as it does not take into account product returns, eBay, auctions, sales at a discount, and purchases by "personal use consultants" --- all of which would lower this figure.
