    This is the first site I have encountered that requires me to sign up and subscribe so that I can read an article. I don’t suppose anyone would be kind enough to share their information, or better yet, copy and send me the article (josephine.lark@ymail.com)? I’d love to read Virginia Sole-Smith’s experience and personal opinion of Mary Kay.

    And they want to call Mary Kay a scam. The real scam is having to subscribe to an online magazine to read just one article.
