My Friday Finds feat. Yankee Candles and Younique
I feel there is a need to update you on the Younique situation. I signed up to join Younique back in October last year, and I really did feel it was going to be the answer to my prayers , being able to sell make up from the comfort of my home, and earn enough not to have to go out to work any more. Unfortunately, this did not happen. Don't get me wrong the make up is FANTASTIC, and although people kept telling me that they would purchase the amazing 3D Fibre lash mascara off me, a lot of people backed out once I had ordered their products, saying they did not have the money. I had abuse off people saying not to fill their Facebook feeds with spam, and so felt like I could not promote the products properly. So because this was not working and you could not sell through Ebay (even though hundreds are doing it and getting away with it!!!) I wasn't getting the sales. There was a lot of pressure to meet targets and to be honest it was causing a lot of stress and anxiety. Even though it is denied, Younique is a pyramid scheme, and although people at the top are making millions and are amazing at what they do, unless you are in people's faces all the time, you won't get the sales. I was told that you are not allowed to sell at fetes and car boots or on Ebay, but others were doing the exact same and getting away with it. I was told you were not allowed to sell in hairdressers or beauty salons, yet others were and getting away with it. I was fed up of not getting anywhere and being sent nasty messages on Facebook and so I gave up on my dream. Even though I am not a Younique representative anymore, I still saw some new products in their range last week and so decided to order some of their eye make up remover wipes, a bronzer and a cream eye shadow.
So not many purchases this week, but I am pleased overall with the items I have got. Let me know in the comments if you have a candle addiction or if you have tried Younique and what you think of them. Love to hear from you all.
See you soon
