What do you think about Avon...

I was thinking about selling it. Then some people told me it's cheap and it's not worth it. Also do the reps get a discount?? Just want opinions... I'm not looking to make tons of $. I just like makeup and would have fun selling it.

  • I love Avon! I order from my rep every month or twice a month. I love the make-up and shampoos, perfumes etc..

  • I hated selling it. I might have made $5 the whole time that I didn't have to spend on buying the books and samples and shipping and all that crap. I still owe them money because on my last two orders, no one paid me so I had to take it out of my own pocket.

  • I'm selling it and it is king of cheap but the products are great so I send everything I earn on make-up.. They have some really cool stuff. And yes, you get a discount!

  • Yes reps get a discount, but unless you have a huge market you really cant make any money..

  • I was going to do Mary kay but it's $100 to sign up and I'm not going to spend that. I just want to find a make up to sell that is good and not expensive to sign up for.

  • I love some of avon's stuff. I sold it for a while and did pretty good,I made $200-$300 every 2 wks.plus I was working another full time job.I went to the 3rd top seller spot in less then a month. But then I got greedy and started buying stuff for me and blowing my profits, so I stopped selling it. But I did love selling it.
