I’m just a bitter negferret mood-hoover who failed at MLM, because I didn’t want it enough. Also, I am a “dumb-dumb” for falling for MLM in the first place…

Yes, its true – Elle only wrote this blog because she is bitter and jealous of Younique success stories. Honest.

Don’t worry, that’s a joke, huns.

In the spirit of Timeless Vie‘s “But Why Aren’t You Balanced?” post, I want to address the whole “you’re just a disgruntled former rep” drivel, following a bizarre exchange of messages sent in from a follower. You’ll see those shortly.

When I started telling my #Poonique story in March 2017, I knew that some people would not like what I had to say. Back when Timeless Vie and Bot Watch were kindly talking to me, and explaining what a crock of shite MLMs truly are, I observed the work they were doing over social media.

Using #MeToo to Flog Crap Mascara? Not Cool, Younique Huns…

Elle has noticed that Younique huns have already began using the #MeToo movement to push their crappy products & ‘charity’ – read on.

I was recently saddened and infuriated by Younique huns, all at the same time. Before I elaborate on why, let me give you some background.

Social media users will be no stranger to the #MeToo movement, where victims of sexual assault and harassment united on Twitter to publicise their experiences.

MLM Selling in Facebook Groups: “Three Spaces on My Team”, Mum-Shaming & Timeless Vie’s MLM-Free Network Zone

Admins of Facebook groups are inundated with MLM recruitment posts & reps trying to bait their members, as well as parent-shaming. Read how they are fighting back…

If you have a Facebook profile, chances are you’ll be a member of a Facebook group. With the rise of MLM’s presence over social media over the past few years, it makes (unfortunate) sense for presenters/reps to utilise these groups for their own agenda.

This article will discuss subtle (and not-so-subtle) MLM selling in Facebook groups, Timeless Vie‘s MLM-Free Network campaign, and how group admins and their fed-up members are starting to push back.

Observations From a Concerned Friend: Magda Needs Saving From The Y-Life

Elle recently received an account from Lillie, a woman whose friend Magda has been sucked into Younique. Read her rant on how her friend has changed, and not in a good way…

Many followers have been kind enough to contact me to share their experiences with MLMs – check out my Tales From Former Huns section to read their accounts. This tale, however, is a little different.

Today, I am sharing this saga from “Lillie” [not her real name]. Lillie is a frustrated friend who wishes to discuss her observations of Magda, a stay-at-home-mother who is truly besotted with the Y-life.

Putting Timeless Vie’s MLM Bingo into Practice (Yes, it Really Happened)

One of Elle’s followers recently got to play Timeless Vie’s MLM Bingo game with a Younique hun – let’s find out if she got a line or a full house…

Regrettably (for some), I’ve been a bit quiet these past few days- for those of you who interact on my Facebook page, you’ll know that my chronic illness has been a bit of a sod (it is relentless). I’ve sat down to write a little something tonight, with the intention of keeping things lighthearted.

Back in 2016, anti-MLM giants Timeless Vie created a fun game, in their article Let’s play MLM Bingo! Believe it or not, one of my followers actually got to play very recently, and I was there to witness it. In this post, I tell you about her gripping and exciting game as we play along.

Presenters – You Need To Stop Telling Customers That Younique is Cruelty-Free, Now.

Elle stopped being a Younique presenter in early 2016, and is sadded to see that presenters are STILL wrongly claiming the company is cruelty-free…

For those of you that followed my #Poonique saga, you must remember Harriet’s quandary in Chapter 10 – whether to admit to a vegan customer that she had lied about Younique being cruelty-free?

This was back in late 2015 – I am saddened to see that it is still happening in 2017.

You’re About to Lose Your Younique Presenter Status? It’s Really Not Your Fault

Elle receives some screenshots from a follower, featuring a Younique presenter who is upset she is about to go inactive. The advice she receives is questionable. Elle also discusses the concept of “stock/party swaps” and discovers some new MLMs she hasn’t even heard of before.

For those of you that followed my #Poonique saga, you saw how the Butterflies were made to feel inadequate.  The uplines were always at hand to tell us that our negative mindsets were causing us to fail.  

The purpose of this article is to observe the hun-behaviour witnessed on social media, and provide my opinions on how they conduct themselves (based on my own experiences as an ex-presenter).
