  • I have honestly never used Mary Kay. I have walked into one of the stores but I found them to be expensive, but this was years before MAC came out lol

  • I love Mary Kay. It is priced competitively with department store brands but is NOT sold in stores, only through independent Mary Kay consultants. It would be 2 - 3 times more expensive if sold in a store. It's also been the number one brand in the U.S. in the combined categories of facial skin care and color cosmetics for 17 yrs running, and last year sold $2.3 billion in wholesale sales compared to Estee Lauder (which encompass 13 different brands including MAC, Clinique, Lancome, Bare Essentials, Bobby Brown, etc.) which sold $2.7 one brand sold almost as much as 13 combined. Mary Kay consultants provide unparalleled customer service that you don't get with department store brands.

    So yes, I love them, lol. Sorry for the long answer :)

    I'm also a Mary Kay Independent Senior Beauty Consultant.

  • Sold it for years until I found something better. I found a company that sells custom blend mineral and liquid and you dont have all the quotas to meet.

  • Nice products but way too expensive.

  • I don't like Mary Kay at all. They eyeshadows wipe right off, the mascaras clump no matter what and it's too expensive to buy something that doesn't work right and then have to go buy something at the store to replace it.
