Tyra Beauty Business Shut Down: Shocked & Hurt

As a person who joined Tyra Beauty in January I am shocked and hurt to hear that Tyra has decided to shut down business operations in Beauty Direct Sales.

While I have been blindsided in a way it is not totally shocking. But it does hurt after you have put your time , energy and hopes into a business.

Just the last week I had 4 Beautytainers sign up with me and another Beautytainer I was already training. I was busy promoting them and helping them find themselves in their new business.

Only to get TyraMail from Tyra saying that the Tyra Beauty was shutting down business operations in July 2017 . Wow…

There are a number of reasons why I am hurt that Tyra Beauty is closing. As an Entrepreneur I look for good investments and I acquire them. While I already had my hand in the beauty cookie jar with other MLM companies I liked what Tyra Beauty brought to the table. Namely Tyra. She is a brand in and of herself and she is shall I say Fierce. Lol. Ok we can laugh. Let it out lol.

We love her story and yes … We were rooting for her!!! Lolll. Ok I like to joke and maybe we need some laughs right now. I took a look around Facebook and I see that many people are bummed by this.

Especially since Tyra Beauty just rolled out a new website and some new toys. I thought Tyra did a super job with her business set up. We had a lot of cool things to work with.



Because I do not know what went on behind the scenes I will not comment on why Tyra shut down Tyra Beauty. There will be people who rag on her unfairly and those who defend her to the hills. I will not be neither because I just don ‘t know what happened.

I do know that business is hard. She put herself on the line. She believed in herself and yes she believed in millions of ladies across America and the world that we would be able to build a business with her brand. I am a man who saw the power and possibility of her business being successful. The next thing after Mary Kay and Avon.

Though I like Mary Kay and Avon and they are still viable and powerful business options. I was looking for something more today and forward looking brand wise. Tyra gave us that. But running your own business for the first time is hard.

That is why many of us jump on to MLM. Because who has the money, connections, and business savvy to deal with all the lawyers, taxes, and people . So I think it is wise that we not be so harsh on Tyra. She took the jump. She put in the time.

I think she saw that it was not worth the time and money that she had to invest to make this business viable. So it was better to jump ship instead losing more time and money down a dead end street.

I will say this. Tyra had a great idea. She had great products as far as I can tell. My wife tried one of her products . It looked great!!! Sorry my wife is not much for makeup or business she did not try the rest of the products that I asked her to try from Tyra. So I cannot tell you much about the quality of Tyra ‘s makeup products. But I assume that they are super. I have heard that much and I saw the names of those who were killing it. I was like wowww this is a great business to invest in.

So I told ladies about it and I am glad I got some ladies on my team this week. It felt great and the new ladies were super excited to start. I was super excited to help them. All I need is some ladies to show the ropes of how to sell beauty products online and in person. I knew we were going to rock.

Then I saw the news in my inbox today. Tyra sent us TyraMail. It was not good. She said she was closing down Tyra beauty.


Share with us how you feel about Tyra Beauty closing? 

Although Tyra Banks Beauty business is now closed. The products and the excitement is real! If you would like to shop at Tyra ‘s shop here is a link.


Update: I just went to Tyra ‘s site and all of the products are sold out. Sorry!

  1. I just found this out , when I went to use my reward points that were gone , I’m so sad it was honestly the best makeup and the only makeup I will wear, I was a beautytainer that got let go after being reassured by tyra herself that it wasnt true, but I still love her I’m sure she had her reasons , I just wanna know the truth,and why is she not making the makeup anymore , it was honestly the best!!! I know alot of people were butthurt about the whole thing, but I wasnt, and I wish her the best!!! I actually won her BOSS necklace she was wearing in the pictures all the time, with a handwritten letter and I will charish it the rest of my life

    • Hi Angela! Wow that is too cool. As I am a man. I never tried the makeup. I am so glad to hear that the quality was so good. Great to have a unique and awesome brand to share with the world. Yes it is very unfortunate that things didn’t work out. As an Entrepreneur I respect her decision and her try. I think it could of been done better. But who is perfect?
      Did you find another beauty line to promote? I know many women were really pushing it hard and making sells!

      You represent the human toll of what happens when a MLM falls. You are building up a business and putting your name on it then it falls. I still work with MLM’s. But that is why I am also building my blogging business. My blog will always be up and working for me. I am not dependent on anyone. That is why I advise people not to put all your eggs in one business whenever possible.

      Build the business then try to diverse as soon as you can.

    • Hi. I am well aware of MLM’s and what they serve as. They are legal. They help people to change their lives. Health, Motivation, Education and income. I myself have not made a lot of money in MLM’s . But I know people first hand who have. I will tell you that it is all what you make it. Everything is not for everyone. And…. Some people ‘s main reason for being in Network Marketing is not money.

      They love the experience. They love the friendships they gain, they love the products, they love buying the products at discounted rates.

      And…. They love the fact that one day if they do the right things they may a small or large residual income. I am on of those people who believe that. So while I think you for giving me advice. I am well aware of the business landscape.

      I advice people when they decide to do Network Marketing AKA MLM ‘s to have a game plan. Guess what business is not easy. If so everyone would quit their job and start a business. MLM ‘s are great because you don ‘t need a huge start up investments to start a business.

      Your name is not on the line. You don’t have to worry about the major headaches of running a business. But you have the ability to make some good money. So like anything else I understand Pros and Cons. I weight the risk and see if it is for me or not. I personally love it.

      Although as you see I have my own website. Where I make income from many different areas. I am not depending on an MLM or anything else. Which is wise. Diversification of your income is wise.

      MLM ‘s are a great way for people to diversify their income. With little or no risk. With little or no stress. Again try opening up your own business. Which I think is a great idea. But it comes with much more responsibility and headaches.

    • I am also very aware of the Pink Truth website. The anti Mary Kay and MLM website. Are you the owner? I feel the same way about Tyra shutting down her business as I do about Mary Kay. Although I sometimes have issues and questions. I am not in that persons or companies position. Perspective goes a long way. Furthermore I think that a lot of the negative is false or overblown information .

      I love that you have the right to think what you think and even though I am a Mary Kay consultant I am no yes person. The truth is the truth. I love telling the truth.

      However I believe that the Pink Truth website goes overboard in its attack on Mary Kay. You can go to most business and any organization and find some things to disagree and rail on if you want. This is the great part. No one is making you be apart of Mary Kay or any other organization. I love Mary Kay. Even though I have some issues with some things. I understand why they do it for.

      I have my own ideas. But guess what I am not what you call an owner. I do not own the company. So if I want to be apart of it I am not going to be disgruntled. I will enjoy the great things that the company gives. That goes for MK and any other organization.

      The Person who made the Pink Truth website is an ex MK consultant . They got out and decided to create a site to trash MK. Ok fine. That is the way you do it. But I doubt you are hurting MK. I would also say that anyone who makes a decision not to join MK or buy from MK because of your site is making a mistake. Because I have not seen most of what you report in in MK.

      I know many people who have been in MK and who are in MK. They love it! One of them is driving a Pink Cadillac. The others have been in the company for years and they love it even though they are not making the money they would want.

      Again I only speak the truth. I have my thoughts about certain things. But I know my place. I am just a consultant in someone else ‘s super business. Which I have made a lot of sales from over the 3 years that I have been in it. People love the products.

      So everyone is entitled to their opinion. Thank you for sharing yours.
