On last night’s Last Week Tonight, Oliver explained that companies like Herbalife Nutrition and Mary Kay work on a multilevel marketing basis – which means their business model is basically a barely-legal pyramid scheme .
The brand sells cosmetics via a multi-level marketing scheme ( MLM ), with ‘beauty consultants’ of Mary Kay recruited to sell the company’s products directly to those within their local communities. Beauty consultants are not employees of Mary Kay and do not receive a salary or wage.
came up with this silly idea of calling Mary Kay a “ dual -level marketing ” program. Apparently, they didn’t like the fact that the system the company uses is multi-level marketing (MLM) so they made up a new name that they try to differentiate from MLM.
Avon Products, Inc. or simply known as Avon is a multi – level marketing company in beauty, household, and personal care categories. Avon had annual sales of $5.57 billion worldwide in 2019.
Mary Kay’s makeup products are better quality, but Avon has really good bath and body products! Both companies have great products though, in my opinion!
Your real profit from selling Mary Kay , is what is left after costs, and it will be less than 50% of your total sales . Retail sales are however not, the only way to earn money with Mary Kay . Depending on how many people you can recruit, Mary Kay will pay you between 4% and 13% commission on any sales they generate.
Some MLMs are illegal pyramid schemes. Most people who join legitimate MLMs make little or no money. Some of them lose money. People who become involved in an illegal pyramid scheme may not realize they’ve joined a fraudulent venture, and typically lose everything they invest.

MY WORK IS HAVING A CRAFT FAIR IN NOV AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE SOME OF THE MARY KAY PRODUCTS THERE. They can win the drawing, but you do not book them or sell them product. Just a few words of caution, We cannot legally demonstrate or sell product at a booth.
Technically, no. Scentsy is not a pyramid scheme . It’s possible for Scentsy consultants to sell Scentsy products and earn a commission for doing so.
Rodan and Fields is a multi-level-marketing company. Rodan and Fields is not a pyramid ” scheme “. They are a reputable company and they operate within the guidelines set out by the Federal Trade Commission’s Amway decision.
Dual distribution describes a wide variety of marketing arrangements by which the manufacturer or wholesalers uses more than one channel simultaneously to reach the end user. They may sell directly to the end users as well as sell to other companies for resale.
The reason Avon is bad is because it follows the unethical multi-level marketing model, which creates a pyramid of sellers. The people at the top make great money and the people stuck on the bottom often lose money.
