From the "About" Page:
"About Pink Truth
Pink Truth was started on July 4, 2006 as "Mary Kay Sucks," and quickly became the fastest growing and most widely consulted resource for women in and out of Mary Kay Cosmetics.
The site began to take a lighthearted, yet critical, look at the Mary Kay "business opportunity." As the readership exploded, the site became more focused on providing a wealth of information to Mary Kay women around the world.
In November 2006, the site made the switch to the name "Pink Truth" to signify its commitment to information-sharing about the truth of multi-level marketing companies that prey upon women. The focus has been (and continues to be) Mary Kay Cosmetics, but other pyramid schemes and MLMs are discussed as well.
The site was founded by Tracy Coenen, a fraud investigator and forensic accountant who investigates a variety of frauds and scams. After seeing thousands of women fall victim to false income claims, misleading marketing materials, and flat-out lies about the business opportunity, Tracy decided to do her part in warning consumers about Mary Kay.
Tracy believes that Mary Kay is a product-based pyramid scheme, which means that many people at the bottom of the pyramid must buy significant amounts of products so that those at the top can get the big commission checks, “win” the cars, and go on the fancy trips. This is common with multi-level marketing (MLM) companies such as Mary Kay. They depend upon an endless recruitment of new people who purchase inventory packages, in order to transfer wealth from the bottom of the pyramid to the few at the top."
