Yesterday my wife called me at work to let me know she was going to a Mary Kay party at a friends house - fine, no big deal - I assumed she'd pick up a few little things for $10-$15. Well, turns out I was half right. She DID only get a "few little things", but the price tag was $76.80!! OUCH!! How can a few little bottles of creamy tan goo cost that much??? I bet that if the truth were known, the imgredients in the "Mary Kay" product line are *EXACTLY* the same as the $2.95 crap you can buy at Wal-Mart. Will someone please explain to me what makes this garbage so valuable???

In my opinion its not the products.......ITS THE PARTY! The ladies all get a chance to get away from their beer swilling hubbies for a few hours of "girl talk" I for one do not begrudge my wife going to such affairs.....mind you I prefer it when she goes to the Fantasia parties!!!! Wooooo HOOoooo

Be glad, that's cheap. My wife spends a lot more than that every trip to the Este Lauder counter.

Buy some ammo to even things out.

"Mary Kay" is like Amway. Get your wife away from it! Or she'll have you selling it and wearing it.

Consider yourself lucky. My wife recently bought a new line of skin care products from Neiman Marcus. The total was over $700.

Hee hee - my wife thinks Mary Kay is a famous construction company in Phoenix! I laughed so hard on the way home from eating out the other night, I just couldnt tell her the truth....[whacko]

At least she hasn't found out about MAC or BCBG. I myself have a hard habit of Origens skin care. That stuff will drain the ammo fund, quick!

Yes, my wife's make-up bill is scary also. My wife without make-up is even more scary. [:D]
