As of this month, I'm officially an ex-presenter. I joined the company in 2014, basically to get the starter kit.
Just $99, and back then the starter kit was amazing with all full-size products. Well, back in 2014 the original 3D mascara was also amazing. I've got a wonderful full-time job that I love, and really only intended to join Younique for the discount. But my friends LOVED the mascara.
They bought and bought, and told their friends who also bought from me. I moved up the ranks almost unintentionally, and made some nice extra spending money. Then, in mid-2015, the company changed. They changed their mascara formula.
Seriously, the dumbest move ever. The new stuff sucks. My friends who are still in Younique don't even promote it anymore. I actually saw the new mascara (Younique brand) for sale half-price on Groupon Goods.
After the mascara debacle, I pretty much lost all of my sales. A few of my friends bought the liquid foundation, but when they went to re-order, Younique was out of stock. My friends moved on to other brands. The Younique market is saturated.
People are over it. They're expanding to other countries, I suppose to find new markets of customers who aren't over it yet. My friend who first introduced me to the brand is black status and her commissions have been getting lower and lower. She's ready to jump ship any day now.
Prices are high...too high for the average consumer, and the quality is just ok. For months, I didn't even make the minimum order to stay a consultant. Finally, they terminated me. No hard feelings.
I've been over Younique for a while now.
All of my friends who were in it have either left or are about to leave. If you've got direct selling talent, you are wasting it at Younique.
