Make-Up Mockery

Mary Kay

Not to dis the ultra successful, almighty Mary Kay, but this is exactly what I imagine I willl look like if I wear her products on my face… an old lady.

I must have misunderstood my friend half pint when she suggested that I attend a Mary Kay party hosted by our bartender one of our mutual friends. Maybe I thought she said, “Be at my house Thursday for a night full of bloody marys, kay?”. That would explain things a little better.

Firstly, I wasn’t really aware that Mary Kay is still around let alone that make-up is still being sold door to door disguised as a “party”. Sorry, but the only items I want someone selling to me in the comfort of my own home are pizzas and sex toys. Secondly, do people actually make money doing this? If so, is it even worth it? I’ll admit I am a bit bias being that the color pink makes me want to punch a baby (calm down, it’s called a hyperbole). Plus, I can’t say that I see the career appeal of driving a pastel colored vehicle of any shade. Nonetheless, I never falter in my friendship duties, so I will be atending this charade promptly at 7:30 pm tomorrow. I’ll even bring dessert.

Why can’t I hold all this make-up? LOL!

Even if Mary Kay is there herself, looking like she came straight off of the set of Tootsie as Dustin Hoffman’s stunt double, I will stand proud by my chums. I only hope that they will forgive me when I disappear after making an obligatory I-feel-guilt-tripped-into-buying-from-you-because-you’re-my-friend purchase. They will find me out back pretending my new lipstick is a smoke, finishing off a bottle of wine and hoarding the bread pudding.

Seriously though, apparently Mary Kay is still an extremely prevalent business, and I am not one to judge how others attempt to stash their cash … as long as I don’t have to participate. But, I will endorse the hell out of my own blog without trying to put blush on you. Click here and simply copy and paste this in to the post box: Becca at 25toFly likes to high-five herself.

  1. Luckily haven’t had any friends who are MK people, but one of my friends just joined Herbalife and now I’m getting the “I-feel-guilt-tripped-into-buying-from-you-because-you’re-my-friend” purchase… at least it’s supposed to help with losing weight, so I just eat stuff rather than put it on my face… ^.^

  2. “But, I will endorse the hell out of my own blog without trying to put blush on you.”
    What a relief!

  3. Mary Kay is the classic pyramid scheme. It’s not so about how much product you sell, it’s how many people you talk into joining the biz. Mary Kay did well because she was at the very top. My Home Ec teacher quit teaching to become an MK consultant and she made bank. Got herself one of those pink caddies and a mink stole.

    And you are priceless, that line,”…..Thursday for a night full of bloody marys, kay?” Is sheer genius. LMAO!

    • You are absolutely correct about the pyramid scheme. Also, I totally had to Google what a stole is, but I bet your teacher felt pretty pimp in her caddie with that thing on. Thanks for the compliment too :).

  4. You are too lovely. I was a Pure Romance consultant up until recently and I felt the same way. Only thing that women should be buying in a party scene is sex toys. And, I have a few MK friends, and I love them all dearly, but man, when they talk about MK, they get the crazy eyes. I have no idea what they do at those meetings, but they are trained to be make-up pushing drones. “Yes, I have a consultant,” is used on the crazy eyes regularly. Truth? I don’t.

  5. If Mary Kay can do it, why can’t we, right?? If she wrote a book, she’d rock it as an indie. 😉

  6. I get harassed by MK sales ladies on a semi-annual basis. I’m too nice to tell them I’m not interested and so they just keep calling and offering to give me a free facial…I have also been hit up by Amway and Rodan and Fields (both pyramid thingies). I must have an easy-target on the back of my head or something.

  7. Hilarious! I needed a good chuckle today! Enjoy the wine!
