The pink Cadillac bait has been updated, but the (apparently too-kitsch to be dangerous) 'Mary Kay' cultic trap, has remained the same for more than 50 years.
Yesterday, another blame-the-victim 'MLM Income Opportunity' cultic racket, 'Mary Kay Cosmetics' was again partially exposed by the US mainstream media.
Finally, well-informed journalists are starting to ask common-sense questions (concerning whether 'MLM income' claims are gross or net) when faced with deluded 'MLM' shills reciting the same positive script.
As soon as these questions were politely asked by an ABC reporter, 'Mary Kay' shills suddenly become evasive and their robotic smiles start to crack.
Like all 'MLM' scams, 'Mary Kay Cosmetics' has been hiding effectively 100% overall net-loss/churn rates, because it has had no significant, or sustainable, source of revenue other than its own constantly-churning losing participants - all of whom have been arbitrarily defined as 'Independent Business Owners'.
In reality, millions of 'Mary Kay' victims around the world (just like those of approximately 1400 other legally-registered US-based 'MLM' rackets) have been, and continue to be, duped into buying infinite shares of their own finite money.
