Mary Kay Cosmetics Business Opportunity

The Mary Kay Cosmetics business opportunity is for women who want to sell cosmetics and skincare products. In the West Coast and the East Coast, there are a large number of Mary Kay consultants offering the Mary Kay Cosmetics business opportunity. However, the Mary Kay Cosmetics business opportunity has a major flaw for new Mary Kay consultants who don't know anyone, don't have family and friends and are broke. New Mary Kay consultants cannot just seize the Mary Kay Cosmetics business opportunity and make a fortune with it. Overall, the Mary Kay Cosmetics business opportunity is only for a certain type of women.

How much does it cost to become a Mary Kay consultant?

To become a Mary Kay consultant, you have to be sponsored  and then buy the Mary Kay cosmetics starter kit which costs $100, plus shipping. What you get is shown below. Apart from enough literature to get you Mary Kay business started, you also get some Mary Kay products, enough to do a facial on someone and get them interested in Mary Kay cosmetics. All the Mary Kay products you get are worth about $400 overall.

Mary Kay Cosmetics Business Opportunity

After signing up as a new consultant with Mary Kay, you are supposed to buy inventory of Mary Kay products. Unlike most other network marketing companies which discourage consultants to keep inventory, Mary Kay Cosmetics rely on consultants keeping inventory because of their business, discount, and commission structure. This is why when a Mary Kay consultant goes out of business, she often has tons of Mary Kay products on sale. However, if you quit Mary Kay Cosmetics within one year, Mary Kay does refund 90% of your cost, subject to rules and restrictions of course.

So, how much does the Mary Kay Cosmetics business opportunity cost?

First the $100, plus shipping, for the starter kit. Then you have to buy your Mary Kay inventory. The price break kicks in when you buy $200 or more worth of products. Once you have purchased an order of $200 or more, you are an 'active' Mary Kay consultant. Then for three months, you are entitled to purchase all Mary Kay cosmetics at 50% discount. Otherwise, you will be buying at retail prices.
