Mary Kay Upgrades to Pink Escalades

Mary Kay Upgrades to Pink Escalades

Remember back in the 1980s and 1990s when Mary Kay used to give their top saleswomen pink Cadillacs? Now that its 2011, they’ve upgraded to SUVs, and a lucky group of winners got to take a tour of the GM plant where their all-new pink Escalades were coming off the line.

In total, 44 of these pink Escalades were given out to lucky Mary Kay cosmetic reps. It’s great to see that the classic Cadillac incentive has been updated, we’re just not sure that we’d be seen driving a pink Escalade. Yes, it is a company car of sorts and it will be used to help promote the business, but won’t someone please think of the children and the husbands who have to be seen in it? And sure, it could be worse – the tone of pink could be a garish Pepto-Bismol hue instead of a flirty rose blush.

Here’s a question for those of you who may have some Mary Kay kind of insight – how long do you have to wait before you can paint them? Is there a stipulation that says that you must wait a year before going silver? We really want to know, so fill us in using the comment section below.

    I’m going to have to pass on that offer… I’m more of a neutral gal when it comes to car colour.

  • Ana

    In the words of Mary Kay herself…. and what color is the Escalade that YOUR company is giving YOU for your hard work and determination?

    Truth be told I’ve never met one husband or child that doesn’t want to be seen in their mom’s Pink Cadillac. To answer your question, you cannot paint them and i’ve never heard of anyone wanting to. I have heard numberous times of people wanting to get their own cars painted in the Mary Kay pink and can’t because the color is exclusively for May Kay. When you are in a pink cadillac tinted windows are a must because people are constantly breaking their necks and taking photographs of your car. I don’t know why you would want a boring silver car when you could have a free pink car that gets compliments multiple times a day.

    I just wanted to know what happens to the cars after the consultant has driven it for the two years? I mean you just can’t go out and buy one off the used section of the lot.

    Thank you for defending the pink. People against it are just jealous
