I'm always amazed with the number of jewelry accessories that my wife, mother-in-law and daughter have in their possession. If costume jewelry was actually worth any “real money” we would all be rich! Well, I should rephrase that. Clearly there is a huge market for costume jewelry and accessories otherwise we wouldn't see whole stores dedicated to them at your local mall. Although it's probably profitable, I'm pretty sure it's expensive to have a physical store in a mall. But what if I told you, you could get in on the whole jewelry accessory craze right from your home?
Well, apparently you can and I'll cover how in my Paparazzi Jewelry Review. So sit back and relax as you learn how to turn your accessory hoarding ways into some money!
What is Paparazzi Accessories?
“Paparazzi Accessories” is a home based business that allows work at home seekers the ability to sell affordable costume Paparazzi Jewelry and accessories. Consultants are able to promote the products using online parties, home parties, word of mouth or many other ways that are totally up to the consultant. The company was started in 2010. They are headquartered in Hurricane, Utah. If you don't like the idea of having to sell anything to make money, you have other options such as SurveyJunkie.com.
About the Paparazzi Jewelry Accessory Products
The lure of most costume or fashion jewelry accessories is that there are various types, styles and most importantly they're affordable. Well Paparazzi takes it a step further by keeping all “Paparazzi jewelry” and items at $5. I'm very surprised by the variety of the jewelry and accessories and how they can be so affordable without looking cheap. Check out some of the jewelry and accessories yourself.
How Do I Become A Paparazzi Consultant?
Chances are you're reading this Paparazzi Jewelry Review and thinking I can definitely sell these accessories especially if they're only $5. Well, that's exactly why Paparazzi Accessories has a home based business opportunity that anyone can join. You're known as independent consultant or Paparazzi Consultant.
Because this is a business and not a job, there are obviously expenses that come along with starting any business. To sell for Paparazzi Accessories you need to purchase a start up kit. The start up kits are priced at $99, $299 or $499. You're able to choose whatever starter kit works with your budget or needs. All the starter kits come with marketing material such as invitations to invite people to your home parties, sales bags, display hooks, receipts, Paparazzi jewelry repair kits, etc. If you don't like the idea of paying for a home business, you can start one for Free with Wealthy Affiliate. If you want another way to make some extra money, you may want to consider SurveyJunkie.com.
How Much Money Do I Make as A Paparazzi Accessories Consultant?
Paparazzi Independent consultants earn 45% commission every time they sell Paparazzi Jewelry or any of the other Paparazzi Accessories at the retail price. Consultants are able to buy the Paparazzi Jewelry & accessories at wholesale prices and then resell them for $5 or more. Although $5 seems to be the sweet spot. The other way to earn with this home business is recruiting other Paparazzi consultants where you earn 5 to 10% from your downline or team volume.
Paparazzi Accessories, Jewelry Complaints
Not Listed With The BBB
A lot of people swear and die by Better Business Bureau ratings. Most of you know how I feel about that if you've read my BBB Work At Home article here. But if you are one of those that determine a company's legitimacy by that BBB letter grade, you'll be disappointed with the fact that Paparazzi Accessories currently have none. This could be a good and a bad thing because it means there hasn't been any formal complaints filed against this company at the time of this review. However, if you feel more comfortable working with companies that have a positive BBB rating, you may want to look into Wealthy Affiliate and SurveyJunkie.com.
Hosting Parties (Optional Now!)
A lot of reps seem to sell the products using home parties. That part of the business would personally turn me off because I'm a hermit and barely enjoy having my family over let alone other people. LOL However, recently the company provided consultants with their own website. This allows reps to avoid the home parties and focus on doing online promotions which is right up my alley. They also do Facebook parties which are totally online as well. So although many people use home parties you're not forced to do this to be successful. But getting traffic to your site is important and fortunately Google can send tons of it to you for FREE with the proper training.
The company seems to suggest selling the product at about $5. However, you could sell it for more. But $5 seems to be the sweet spot as people will buy multiple items in a sitting as my mom did when she learned the price. LOL. That said, you're probably going to need to sell a lot to make some life changing money or will have to supplement some of your own sales by recruiting others under you to make some real money. But making “Real money” is subjective because everyone has different costs of living and income needs. However, given my experience, it seems like selling in volume won't be an issue with that price range and the quality of the products.
So Is Paparazzi Jewelry Accessories Legitimate?
Yes, it is! As you read above, I don't really see a lot of cons with the Paparazzi Accessories Work At Home Opportunity. Although you don't neccessarily have to join it to make money with selling jewelry. Wealthy Affiliate can teach you how to do it without Paparazzi or help you get FREE leads for your existing Paparazzi business.
My mother-in-law makes jewelry accessories all the time and she's definitely made some money. People are always asking her and my wife where they buy their jewelry and once they find out she's made it, they want to pay her to make them some as well. So I know it's a business that can be successful and easy to get into.
But you have to treat it as a real business and work hard on it. Unfortunately, my mother-in-law is more of the creative type and is less interested in making the money. I always wished I had her skill because I'm the business type.
But now I can get into this business without having to make the jewelry because I've decided to become a Paparazzi Consultant as well.
Update: Within a week of joining Paparazzi Accessories, I made my first sale of $40 purely by accident. I was excited about this new venture and just wanted to show my mother, my starter kit and the products that came with it. But she immediately wanted to buy multiple pieces when she learned the price and tried on the jewelry. Now obviously I can't make a living selling to my mom. But it proved that the product does really sell themselves without any high pressure tactics which I love. Oh yeah, Later in the week I also signed up my first consultant as well! Great start!

They actually have an “F” with the BBB with numerous complaints and no positive remarks. But this was probably written before that?
I LOVE this site! Came across it looking for reviews on another MLM but I am a Paparazzi consultant. As with all endeavors…it takes time, information, education, support and most of all desire. Paparazzi is my fun distraction for as long as it makes me smile. If you have any Papa questions, I’ve been with the company for 2 1/2 yrs and full of info lol. I wish you all well with your businesses and future businesses. Eddy, thanks for all the useful info you have about all these companies. Cheers!
Paparazzi founders. You need someone to check Tracey Rose Holliday on Facebook. She has been fired for selling other jewelry then lying about it. Then she signed up under her husband ss # but someone turned her in and you fired her again. Now she is ordering paparazzi under someone else name that was under her and selling paparazzi jewelry under Holliday Hazit. I just saw video she did live Nov 5th at 8pm central time. Thank you so much. I don’t know how to get in touch.
I’ve had a horrible experience with paparazzi, not the company but the people who sell it, they reel you in and then you end up on your own, I have been signed up for 5 months and my upline judge me and always say I’m the bad person Everytime, my upline was depressed she wouldn’t talk to me so I asked my other team members, and she went off and said to come to her. So pretty much she’s mad because I was worried… I dont get it. But I will admit that if u sign under someone please know them don’t do it off that back, because you will probably get pushed to the back burner after u sign up. Paparazzi needs to know the people the have, because their going to loose a lot of customers if this continues. My upline blocks everyone who doesn’t buy, even though on her live she said no need to purchase just play games and talk. It’s a lie. But please don’t fall for it. Some people just think of money and it’s horrible
I sold paparazzi for about eight months. The final straw was when it took three months for corporate to answer my email. My jewelry would often arrive broken. I was told by customer service. I would have to pay to ship it back.
My advice is run. They are a pyramid scheme and only time they care is if you’re not making your personal volume every month.
I hope that there is a class action lawsuit for their shady business practices.
I will probably throw my left over inventory in a garbage bag and take it to Goodwill. No offense to the garbage bag as a garbage bag is too good for this mass produced stuff.
Thanks for sharing your experience Olivia.
I definitely experienced broken pieces on arrival as well. The quality isn’t the best but I don’t expect it to be at that price point. But I would hope they have some quality check process before shipping the items to a rep. Clearly people love the company and are making money. I don’t know if I would call it a pyramid scheme. They have a real product that you can sell. They’re not just making money by signing up reps.
OH NO, I apologize for the bad experience you have had. If by chance you didn’t waste a good garbage bag throwing the jewelry away, would you be welling to just get rid of it and ship it to me??
I so agree. Horrible company to work for.
I make jewelry but I can’t sell it for what I have into it so I have thought about selling this myself so glad it is there
I also make and sell my own jewelry. I recently came across a Paparazzi Consultant at a Arts & Craft Fair and couldn’t believe their prices. I’ve tried MLM businesses before and the only way you can make real money is having other consultants working for you. However, I do question the quality of their product over my own. Also, my jewelry is like my signature, it’s original. I haven’t seen too many people who have copied it.
From my experience, I am skeptical of MLM’s. I don’t have to go to any rallies and listen to a lot of pep talk. Or read any self-improvement books. I do it because I enjoy it.
I can’t see the sense of investing at the ‘least’ another $300 to get started when I already have an inventory over $1000. What am I suppose to do, cut my own prices and take a loss. I’d be cutting my own throat.
MLM’s are not for everyone. It takes a certain personality, a lot of tenacity
and hard work. I’m just too old for that game.
So, for name sake and do yourself a favor. Do as much research on MLM’s and the company before you leap. Do not judge a book by its cover.
For you doers and shakers, I wish you all the best.
I was give earrings as a gift from paparazzi accessories and read a lot of the comments about the company and since I am a big fan of shopping local and found out it’s not made even in America! I bet the people who make this crap for people to sell for $5 maybe get 10 cents or less for their hard work and also dealing with metals and hazardous fumes and chemicals so for me I will buy local their are a lot of people I can help to live a better life and benefits my community
How does Amazon sell papa jewelry? I saw it sold by “lots” of 20 pieces, 40 pieces, etc. I won’t buy like that. Can you please tell me how Amazon gets to do that? I thought it was suppose to be sold by a consultant not another company. I’m alittle confused by this.
Can you explain please?
I am assuming it may be a rep. But who knows.
It stinks that there are some who seem to have had a bad experience with Paparazzi. The potential is there. Does it take work? Absolutely! Are you going to get rich overnight? No! But with persistence and consistency, you can achieve success. I signed up under a brand new consultant who expected instruction from her personal sponsor. She did not get any support or useful guidance. I have made it to where I am by doing my own research and am looking forward to building my business now that I have more time on my hands to invest in my business. I have passed on things that I have learned to other consultants who aren’t even on my team. Paparazzi is a company that believes in building each other up and I will uphold that to the best of my ability.
For those stating that you can sell the jewelry for more than $5.00 if it is a fundraiser, please consult your handbook or call compliance. You cannot sell for more than $5.00 and if you are caught, you will lose your consultant ID and all that hard work is down the drain. I wish you all well. If you are looking to purchase or join, look me up on facebook! @SassyNClassyBling with Laurie. Wishing anyone who reads my comment all the best. Thank you for your review Eddy with a y! 🙂
You’re welcome Laurie. Thanks for sharing your experience.
I’m a big fan of Paparuzzi, however, I’ve been dealing with one of your consultants, I order, I pay for my jewelry and she keeps sending me excuses for not sending me my jewelry or just doesn’t bother to get back to me, when I confronted her about my jewelry. This is illigeal and she needs to be reformended for doing this to her customers! She owes me a $50.order presently. She just sent me another order I ordered and paid for over a month ago! This needs to be made right.
You should visit their corporate site and contact them directly about this.
You can’t please everybody, I Love everything about it. I’m meeting with one of your Paparazzi Consultant on MondayApril 22, 2019 here in Macon, Georgia. I have purchased alot of it and will continue to buy and sell for myself this time,I’m so excited finally find someone that will get me started. I can’t give her name just yet but she’s a beautiful, spiritual,loyalty young lady that solded me completely after watching some of her videos. I Love everything about it. Thanks for the gorgeous Accessories at an affordable price.
I don’t think it is really about pleasing everyone. It’s just a matter of acknowleding that no company is perfect and will have some areas for improvement. It can still be a great company. But it’s good for folks to know the good and bad so they can decide for themselves what they want to do. Clearly it’s been all great for you and that awesome.
I would not recommend it. At first it is ok, but then you realize, you really it is not worth your time. It is good for a hobby but nothing more. I left and would never recommend to anyone to waste their time. The jewelry arrives broken sometimes. The customer service is horrible because you can Never reach anyone and NOONE writes back via email correspondence.
Thanks for sharing your experience and opinion. It should be interesting to see if the reps come after you in their comments or acknowledge some of the short comings you experienced.
Clearly there are a lot of folks that love the jewelry and business. But I experienced broken pieces of jewelry as well when I purchased my kit. Hopefully the quality has gotten better. But given the price point,
I don’t expect the best of quality.
Well, well, well… What do we have here? Just joking. To be honest, your experience is your own. I’m a consultant, and would tell you, that I am NOWHERE nearly as successful as a lot of the Consultants I know. But due to their success, and monthly checks, I could argue with you that it is NOT a “waste of time”.
I’d also argue that you either had a bad “sponsor”, or you didn’t like that work, and expected a “get rich quick” scheme.
The customer service has NEVER been horrible. Trying to reach them is annoying as hell sometimes, but to say that the CS is horrible, is a bit dishonest. Especially due to the fact you admit to being able to reach them. How can you judge something, you rarely or have never seen?
Yes, the $5 jewelry arrives broke sometimes. For the last 2 years I’ve been in, I’ve had maybe 10 or 15 broke pieces. I’ve ordered THOUSANDS! And I’ve had NO issues getting it resolved.
You had an opportunity to make a good situation great. And for whatever reason, YOU didn’t capitalize on it. It’s not worth YOUR time. Please make that clear, before you destroy someone’s chance of possibly becoming something better. You’re not speaking “facts”, you’re speaking anecdotally.
I’m not a big money making Consultant. I don’t like a lot of the jewelry personally. I think the Meetings they have (especially Vegas) is lacking. BUT!!! I will NOT deny the fact, that it’s a good way to change your financial situation.
I did have a close friend that I referred to sell paparazzi jewelry for extra money. She was having problems from her present job. After I helped her get started; she started avoiding me so I stayed away.
I watched one of her lives and ordered alot of pieces plus I won 2 free pieces with one of those being a ZI piece. I paid for the jewelry online and she sent me a receipt. On the following Friday I received a call from an agency wanting me to give a reference on her. I gave a good report. Then by that following Monday she blocks me.
Today she sends a message to my daughter telling her to tell me to check and see that she has reimbursed me and that she wasn’t going to give me my free pieces because I had “been so mean to her.” The deadline to pick it up is today and my daughter was going to pick it up at Ginger Brewers husband’s place of business Phone Probs in Scottsboro Alabama. Can she do this legally. I want the merchandise and she charged me tax when she didn’t charge any of her other customers tax
Uh you may want to contact Paparazzi directly regarding this.
Sharon, I am SO SORRY that you had thus experience!! I am a new consultant and would love for you to join my FB lives and VIP page (Jessica’s Gem Boutique 73)! And…you might even win some free jewelry! 🙂 for real this time!!
Hi Eddy, Thank you for your review. I am an independent Consultant for Paparazzi Accessories and have been since 2016. I’ve found the jewelry to be of the same quality as any retail chain or department store. I find the women who buy the jewelry are smart shoppers looking for cute products at an affordable price. The compensation plan is effective for generating a realistic income comparable to standard weekday employment, with a generous product commission of 45%. I’ve enjoyed meeting various women who are looking for friendship, trendy, affordable accessories and find the company to be ethical, and a positive venue for reaching professional goals. As a college graduate with a medical background, I value quality, efficiency, and integrity and find Paparazzi is worth my investment and time. As a Consultant interacting with Paparazzi, I’ve always felt the compensation was fair and generous and their communication honest and quick to respond. I find the jewelry to be intact, well made, and varied to suit trends and classic tastes. I am a capable leader and appreciate my hard-working team and find that the overall response to becoming a Consultant is positive. With so many misleading ideas regarding direct sales and thousands of people who have tried and failed- Paparazzi for many others and I has been a resounding success.
You’re welcome. You sound like you’re from the company headquarters. lol That said, thanks for sharing your experience and insight. Everyone has different experiences with the company which is what you see in the comments. Some would argue the quality isn’t the best but considering the price point it’s still a good buy. The company clearly cares for their consultants and tries to help them grow. So like any company there are good points and bad points. And there is no denying that and people should be aware of the good and bad.
Too often I see reps of direct sales and MLM companies try to paint a perfect picture of the company and opportunity. And that’s an insult to people’s intelligence. So I think it’s great to hear positive feedback like you have provided. And some of the negative ones as well so people can come into these opportunities with a realistic expectation. So I appreciate your comments and the others.
They do have BBB complaints and they go unanswered. Realistically speaking you do not make 45% commission when you are paying tax on retail value of things you pay wholesale. Its $2.75 plus .45 cent tax per piece and to recoup they tell you to tax your customer and pocket that tax. Also. You forget that you lose 2.9% plus .30 cent on PayPal fees. Not math genius but you don’t profit when paying those fees.
That’s an interesting breakdown. I wonder how other consultants make this math work for them because clearly some of them are.
In answer to the comission break down. 45% is the comission that would be made if sold at the base price of $5. Since you are a business owner and this is your “store” you would charge tax. If you have a brand through Paparazzi Acessories that is a business and not a hobby then there would be business choices made as with any other businesses to recoup cost. So the $5 collection would be $5 plus tax. Zi Collection $25 plus tax. When a person walks into any store the price listed does not include the tax. The shopper expects to be charged tax, shipping (if applicable), etc. This is not different. Nor is it a problem with customers.
I am a loyal customer and can say I love the products. For $5 I feel I’m getting better than what I may find in department stores! Not every piece is perfect but I can fix it and it’s usually the free earrings that sometimes come damaged. The rings can’t always be worn on the finger I would like but the designs are amazing. It’s definitely addicting as mentioned in the article women like variety!
Thanks for sharing your experience with the products. Have you tried the business aspect as well?
I love how cheap the accessories are, and love the look of a lot of them. I know several people who are consultants, and usually buy from them, as well as other people. The jewelry is advertised as great quality, great materials that won’t cause allergies, at a great price. One of those is true, I’ve bought several pieces that have broken as I take them out of the packet, as well as the frist time I’m putting it on. I’ve had two pairs of earring that have caused allergic reactions as well, they were both “copper”, I don’t know if those are made differently, all the others have been fine. I am savvy when it come to manual stuff, I used to make jewelry myself, so I’ve been able to fix what has broken, but not everyone can do that. Their rings are advertised to fit anyone who is a size 5-10, I wear a size 5 on my ring finger, 6-7 on middle and pointer fingers and most rings fall off, again, I am able to redo the stretchy band, and make them fit, but it is a major pain. To me it’s not a HUGE deal, $5 would be around the price I pay for materials to make one piece, so this just saves me a bit of time, and not every piece breaks, they are not great quality, but what do you expect for that price. I am always asked to join teams, and become a consultant, but I just don’t feel I can advertise something that has been false to me.
Thanks for sharing your honest opinion and experience with this company.
Then you might be allergic to copper. All our items have no lead or nickel. That may be the one type of metal your allergic too without knowing it. Hope that helps.
Just bought some Paparazzi jewelry over the weekend from the sweetest Saleslady. But unfortunately I get allergic reaction to certain metals and that is exactly what happened to me. Although the jewelry looked nice it is poor quality. Lia Sophia line never irritated me.
What is the jewelry made from?
Paparazzi uses a blend of metals to make all our jewelry. The products are primarily made of iron, but do include other trace minerals. Those trace minerals are made up of a metallic alloy or either zinc, steel, aluminum, or copper.
Is there any nickel or lead in the jewelry?
No. All of our pieces are completely nickel and lead free. However, they are not classified as being hypo-allergenic.
I love selling Paparazzi Accessories online right on my facebook. I also go to vendor trade shows! I don’t do any home shows.
This was a great review and good comments, thanks. I just signed up and I should be receiving my start up kit in a few days. I’m really excited about getting started. I’ll update you Eddy on how I do. Thanks again
Sounds good Paula!
Paparazzi is real!!! My distributor has zoomed in her sales this summer. Ive helped her ($5) a lot!
Women like vareity and at this price, we can have it!!
Damn you shameless about pushing this obvious scam LOL.
Do tell why it’s a scam. If I were shameless I wouldn’t discuss the bad things as well. But I love when people call things a scam without any real insight. So chime in.
Do tell…?? What are your facts on Paparazzi exactly?
What kind of wages do the women how make the actual jewlery earn? I know it’s from China, so how are the working conditions in comparison to those in the states. Is this an ethical and fair businesss to the women producing the jewlery?
I would like to know the same thing ?
I worked for a Paparazzi warehouse fulfilling orders for like a month or so, I tried to stick it out, but they treat their employees terribly. It was summer in Southern Utah and they wouldn’t even turn on fans or AC because quote “it would ruin the jewelry to cool it down”???? Also they were rude to their employees and fired people with little reason (a girl once brought her supervisor the wrong size box, the supervisor didn’t specify so the girl grabbed the medium size, she was fired on the spot). I honestly cried because of how terribly they treated people myself included and I don’t cry easily. I thought of reporting them but figured it wouldn’t do much. I would be shocked if they treat their manufacturers ethically. They treat people as if they are disposable, super old fashioned and I’d say there were questionable practices. Just one persons opinion, but a lot of my co-workers agreed they were just more desperate than me. Also this was in the States so I imagine that it’s probably much worse wherever they are sourcing the jewelry.
Thanks for sharing your experience. Hopefully what you have described here isn’t the norm.
I have never heard of Paparazzi jewelery, my coworker invited me to a party and I was curious to know what ‘exactly’ this is about. After googling and reading your review, it gave me some interesting ideas. Thanks for expressing your thoughts and ideas about paparazzi. I’ll let you know how the outcome came out after the home party..
I’m happy the review helped Von. People love the company. Just make sure you do what’s right for you and don’t feel pressured.
For one thing – you cannot sell the Paparazzi Accessories for more than $5.00 – unless it is a fundraiser, then you can sell the items at $7.00 – that is $2.00 each for the group with the fundraiser and you get your 45%. That is the ONLY exception. That is in the rules. You can get in trouble with the company if you are turned in selling for more than $5.00 – also – if a customer sees you are selling for one price and another consultant selling for another price, then you are in hot water. Just sell at the $5.00 like the company requires and you wont have a problem. You don’t necessarily have to spend a certain amount to stay active every month – as long as you make a purchase – or if you have people ordering from your site.
Just giving feedback on what you said about not being able to sell for more then $5. You absolutely can sell for more but, why would you want to? it is not against the rules to do so. If your raising your price and your customers know there are others selling at the normal price, you are going to lose customers. so stick with what is best is what I say. have a good day papa sister.
I became a consultant for Paparazzi about 3months ago and I can Honestly say I LOVE IT. I see my sales increasing each month not to mention I do this on the side, I also have a full time job and 2kids so I stay pretty busy. Paparazzi has given me a since of freedom and has built my self confidance.
I am seeking to become a consultant and I am interesting in knowing how Paparazzi worked out for you Destanie?
There is a required amount you have to purchase every month to stay active. which is 25 pcs. which isnt alot. this is really easy to sell. i just started and sold all my stuff in 2 days.. which gave me a profit of 75.00 . and i bought the $99 pack.
That’s so good to read Kandi!! My first kit is on its way and I’m sooo excited!!
Hope you’re still doing well!!
I just started with Paparazzi As A Consultant In May And So Far I Love It Everything Has Been Going Great For Me So Far I Would Recommend Paparazzi To Anyone Who Is Looking To Start There Own BusinesS
well, i placed an order with my niece about 3 months ago.. i wasn’t going to but thought i would be nice to order about 5 items. She lives in FL and i live in NY.. i gave her my address to mail the stuff, never received. i have sent her facebook messages and she is ignoring me.
I am so sorry about that you did not get your Jewelry from your niece. I will tell you I love paparazzi jewelry. I am very allergic to nickel and this is what caught my eye about paparazzi jewelry. The jewelry is nickel and lead free in addition it is fun and affordable. I don’t want your experience to deter you from trying out paparazzi for yourself. Please give paparazzi another chance..
Debbie I’m sorry that you didn’t get your items either. Maybe you should go to the website http://www.paparazziaccessories.com find you a consultant and order those items again. Hope you haven’t already paid her. Good luck.
I loved this review!
I am a paparazzi consultant myself and have been since March 2017. I have 6 people under me and they all love it too. I have been with direct sales since 2011 and this is by far the best company I have worked at. I love that we don’t have any monthly quotias and people buy from me wherever I go.
Eddy is right about some jewelry breaking, but they have been getting better at not letting that happen. When you get a consultant kit you actually get a jewelry kit so you can basically fix most broken pieces. However, you can also call corporate and they are excellent about making it right.
I do a lot of Facebook live shows. I live in Missouri but I have customers in Texas, West Virginia and even Pennsylvania.
I love everything about this company. The benefits, my upline, my downline, the owners, even the other consultants that aren’t on my team. I have gotten super close via Facebook. This business has really changed my life. I don’t have to go work in the nursing home everyday. I actually stay home and homeschool my kids and work this business. I would love to answer any questions anyone has-even if you dont want to join my team and had another sponsor in mind. I just love this company.
I am a consultant and I agree that some of the pieces do look a bit cheap, while others look very nice. I have had a few break, or come to me broken, or even have some of the chains feel as if the metal wasn’t de-burred so it feels scratchy. This being said, it is $5 jewelry! So for that price, it really is pretty nice. If their QC could be just a bit better, I think this would push the company to the next level. When I wear it myself…which I do! I get tons of compliments. When I say it’s $5 a piece, people are surprised. I recommend it if you have the time to invest.
Thanks for confirming some of my points and sharing your experience. I appreciate it.
I have been very successful with Paparazzi Jewelry and love helping and mentoring my team.
Hello everyone. I am a paparazzi consultant and I absolutely love it. If your thinking about signing up please email me to get you started. I will mentor you as you go and also do one on one video chats with you if your outside of my area. Look forward to hearing from everyone.
I am just starting out as a consultant. For those interested ..but have questions…please feel free to contact me. You can also reach me on Facebook.
I was wondering how it works after the initial order is made … after the starter kit… do you just order another kit? Or is it a contract that automatically is shipped? Do you get to pick the jewelry?
Karla – After you make your initial order you then order pieces. You can order as much or as little as you want of any piece for sale. There is no contract – you do not have to order anything else. If you want to be active during the month (to make commissions on top of your retail profit) you would need to purchase 25 pieces a month. But again there is no mandatory ordering. You may already be a consultant by now but I wanted to answer your question incase no one else did.
Eddy, can you share why you left paparazzi?
There were two main reasons. 1. Face to face sales wasn’t really my thing. I wasn’t big on the whole facebook parties thing.
2. I wasn’t happy with the quality of the jewelry. They look great but they seem to break too easily for my liking.
That said I still think they’re a great company. I think it’s right for certain people and clearly folks are having success. But I prefer passive income that I make from my blogs like this one and my new one MoreRealReviews.com I enjoy blogging more and prefer to have people that come to me that are already interested in the products or companies I may be covering. I just find it to to be an easier business model that fits my personality and needs. So ultimately I’m not knocking them. But I just realized it wasn’t right for my personality and needs. I hope this helps.
I am also interested in selling paparazzi jewelry. I have a part time job and wonder how much time, weekly i would need to invest.
I am interested also, but am curious about the same . Is there a minimum you have to buy each month to stay active? Do they charge shipping?
I’m interested in signing up to become a paparazzi consultant but I do have one question… is there a certain amount of jewelry you have to buy each month?
HI. Wondering if it’s possible to find pieces slightly older. I bought a necklace around a month ago and one of my friends would like one of the same.
I’m a paparazzi consultant and I love what I do. Its nice to be able to be home with my kids and still bring in money.
Thanks for sharing your feelings and experience.
Eddy are a consultant????
No I’m no longer a consultant.
The company specifically says that we cannot charge more than $5 plus tax. My city is 7% tax so $5.35 unless you have to ship some of your personal inventory, then you can charge shipping as well.
I am was a consultant for Paparazzi and although i like some of the jewelry it was hard for me to sell it because it is cheaply made and I am just not getting the support I need to keep it going. I ordered jewelry from paparazzi to sell and upon inspecting it some of it was already broken. The problem with this is that they only give you three days to inspect all the jewelry. My last order was over 100 pieces and I just didn’t have the time to inspect all of it within 3 days, so i ended up paying for broken jewelry that I could not use.
Another thing, some of the jewelry is just not so nice. The pieces that they send to you as hostess gifts are crappy (in my opinion), so I just let me daughters look at them to see if they wanted any of those pieces because I felt that people would look at me crazy for offering them that particular jewelry for hosting a party.
I have not had any home parties because the people that I know are just not that into Paparazzi, but I did however sell it at events around my city and surrounding cities. My experience was not the greatest, but i have talked to other that seem to think that Paparazzi is the cat’s meow. I was told by the person that I signed under that one lady is making $2000 a month with Paparazzi and I do believe that is true, because I have spoken to a few of them myself and they are totally and completely in love with Paparazzi and how it allows them to stay at home with their children.
One other thing that I don’t like about Paparazzi is the commission, 45% of $5.00 is $2.25, but with the cost of shipping if you don’t order $100.00 worth it is actually subtracted from the profit and also it hard to charge $5.50 because people will always say they don’t have the .50 cents.
i have noticed that the quality of some of the jewelry is getting better. I saw a few pieces yesterday that made me do a double take. It could be great for someone, it depends on what you are looking for and what you are trying to get out of it. Also make sure that your upline leaders are people that you can go to about anything. I got more support and understanding from people that I was not associated with. I just posted on facebook that I needed help and someone messaged me. Also, you will not be able to change upline leaders after the first few days. I talked to Paparazzi about this and they would not allow me to switch. The reason why I wanted to change was because I could never speak with her. I sent her a message in September and to this day I haven’t spoken with her yet. The person I signed under was ok, but we eventually stopped talking as well. She was always to busy because she was doing this or that.
It is not totally bad, but just be careful, because from my experience some of them are just out to get as much as they can from as many people as they can. Paparazzi offers a lot of incentives for everything you do and they want those incentives.
All experiences aren’t the same so if this is something that you want to do, go for it and make it work.
Thanks for sharing your experience. I agree about the quality of the jewelry. If they could make significant improvements there then it’s a good opportunity.
I’ve been an independent consultant with Paparazzi for just over 2 years. The company is constantly improving in every way they can, including the quality of their product. They’ve been around now for 6 yrs. I think that shows they aren’t just a flash in the pan. I for one am in for the long haul. Feel free to contact me if you’d like any current information on the company.
Of course it’s a scam. All MLM are a scam unless you get in in the beginning.
Save your money and start a real at home business like writing a blog or getting a real list of suppliers and drop ship direct from your website.
Jeremy, I totally get your disdain for MLMs. I’m not a big fan of them either but I’m objective enough to admit they’re not all scams. There are some bad ones but it doesn’t mean they’re all bad.
I don’t think its a scam, but people are saying its cheap, yes it is going to be cheap jewelry because its only 5 dollars, I mean come on now how great do you think 5 dollar jewelry is going to be? Of course it isn’t going to last forever.
It is a scam…i just bought $25 worth and there was so cheap-i can’t even wear it! No worth it at all…to buy or sell!!!
I don’t think they’re an outright scam. But I do think their products can be improved. So I hear ya there.
Do they have a catalog to show your customers at a home party?That would make it so much easier.
I don’t actually remember. I know that the products change often so thats why you want to send people to your personalized website.
I am interested in selling Paparazzi jewelry. How do you get paid? It seems that the money you do make from parties goes right back into purchasing for inventory so you really don’t have anything in the end. Is having a team the only way to actually make money?
My friend sells paparazzi. I get tons of kids jewelry. I have 4 girls, and ive never had problems with quality. My kids love it
That’s great to hear Kim. Maybe the quality has improved since this review was written.
Yesterday I attended a car show where I came across a lady that was selling Paparazzi. I was struck at how cheap the items were and how good they looked. I purchased several pieces and my friend spent $50! When I came back home I thought I’d like to sell that jewelery in events such as car shows, conferences, conventions, etc. I wouldn’t want to sell in house parties though.. My question is if I could do that and if I can choose the items. Also, the lady that sold Paparazzi had a pink tent. Does the company provide it? Thanks.
Thanks for sharing your experience. It sounds like you really liked the products. Yes you can choose the items you want to sell and yes I believe you can sell them in those venues that you mentioned. I just think you can’t sell where there is another rep present but I could be wrong. I’m not sure where she got that pink tent.
I am also A paparazzi consultant I love the freedome that this company gives you to sell and buy as much as you want, the posabilities are endless with this business, you can not expect to make A lot of money all at once, everything takes time, I started by selling to my family and friends, it is kind of hard for me to make new clients in my small town but it is some how working out for me 🙂
I have loved working in this all these months and I dont plan on stopping 🙂 I suggest yall give it a try also 🙂
I’m glad you’re enjoying it. Any business has endless possibilities and yes they all take time. So no argument there. Has Paparazzi improved the quality of their products. That was one big turn off for me was how easy the merchandise would break. I’m mean I don’t expect them to be super strong but they were very flimsy in my experience.
I think while the company is “legitimate”, it’s success is short lived because once people realize it’s poor quality they stop buying. I’ve been designing, crafting, and selling jewelry for 8 years and a friend of mine gave some of her paparazzi to me for material, it was so weak and low quality I couldn’t use it. The product is not only inexpensive, it is also cheaply made. This is one of those “get wat you pay for” scenarios. So my point is if you want to fill someone else’s pockets choose a company who takes pride in their product, and supplies quality items that people can make use of for awhile. I can see buying cheap jewelry for kids because they don’t take care of it but adults like lasting jewelry.
I can’t argue against the quality of the jewelry. I found it to be very cheap and easy to break as well. So I hear you. It’s something they really need to address to make this a long term company.
Hi! Eddy, I just came across Paparazzi last week, being invited to a FB party & am awaiting arrival of my purchases. Also became interested in becoming a consultant myself. Checking out reviews, I discovered yours today. Your coverage of the company seems to be fair & complete. Thanx, I really appreciate that. I just have one question (w/2 parts), are you still a consultant & still happy w/this company? Or if you are no longer w/Paparazzi, could you tell us why? Thanx in advance for your reply, manga 🙂
Thanks for the kind words. I do try to keep all my reviews fair so you can make an informed decision. I am no longer with the company, I decided to refocus on other things I was doing. I was also disappointed by the quality of the products. The jewelry breaks too easily even though it’s nice stuff. So they need to improve that.
The Paparazzi Jewelry company is not a scam. The company is legitimate. I did sign up to be a consultant and was fine, however, I was very dissapointed with the quality jewelry. The pictures make it look so nice, I researched this company extensively before deciding to buy, because I like the fact you can do cash and carry. However, the very poor quality of the jewelry was a real bummer to me when I ordered my starter kit and jewelry to sell. It is very similar to dollar store jewelry or those very cheaply priced jewelry & cosmetics stores you can find in malls where items sell for $2 a piece. I could buy something at Walgreen’s for the $5 price and get something at a better quality. So, even though they have a great business idea, I could not sell this in good faith to customers. A few pieces of the jewelry had already arrived broken and twisted from my inventory, and a friend of mine bought some from my first show, and a week later it broke. This company must be getting this jewelry for 25 cents a piece and the markup to consultants is about $2.75 per item, so you could make more money buying up cheap store jewelry and reselling it at a lower price, which is sad. I sold off the rest of it at a garage sale for $1 a piece, because I could not in good faith sell this to anyone, knowing that it would break again and again.
I can totally appreciate your thoughts and I have to agree with you to a certain degree. The quality of the jewelry can definitely be improved. Thanks for keeping it real and sharing your experience.
I like your info. I at first was not going to look at you website since you do more than this review. But i read the post and feel comfortable posting you. I am thinking right now since I have no money to purchase a kit, but I do design and sell my jewelry, and i do have a lot of $5.00 jewelry. I am planning to have my own parties and events and I think Paparazzi can help me buy helping make money if my high end jewelry does not sell. I want to be the one at an event that blows peoples mind when they can meet the artist and the consultant for another company. Plus, I won’t have to kill myself making tons of jewelry. I can make money and concentrate on buying more expensive jewelry making tools and jewels to make my jewelry even better. I have already put some money aside in my PayPal account to save up. I want the $299 kit. And later after i purchased my kit I most likely will have you as an consultant, since I have no one and Think you live in California. Please feel free to check my website.
I attempted to reply to Lajuana, but I was unable to do so:
It’s great that you want to sell Paparazzi, Lajuana, but what you are proposing violates the Paparazzi Policies and Procedures. You would be able to sell Paparazzi OR your handmade jewelry at an event such as a craft show or trade show or a home party, but selling both at the same time is against the P&P.
That means you are working for the company or fanchaising. I would not eve use my jewelry with Paparazzi jewelry. I would not put my jewelry with any companies jewelry and call it mine. I have my own bags, and other business attire. I would sell them both but not as one. I use Paparazzi for Paparazzi and my business as my business. You do not criss cross business, but having extra inventory and selection is the key. That should not be a problem. It it is there are other wholesalers, but I do like this company style. Thank you but I will contact Paparazzi.
Great article! After spending $50 at an online party for Paparazzi, I thought, “wait…I can sell Paparazzi and purchase items at the wholesale price for $99?” The best part is…the jewelry is nickel and lead free which is great for me since I have sensitive skin. I have friends who joined other HBB and had to pay $300-$1200 for their “starter kits” through other vendors, and some of the products in those starter kits never sell. If someone is interested in selling Paparazzi but is afraid to get the $99 starter kit, the $99 starter kit is a great kit. Unlike other HBB where you buy the least expensive kit and then wonder why you don’t have the same benefits others’ do, the $99 starter kit is a great starting point.
It contains 35 pieces of jewelry and LOTS of materials (bags, handbook, hooks for pegboards, jewelry display, and much more.) The Paparazzi support system is great as well (from corporate and other consultants.) It has been quite a bit of fun for me! What I like to do is if someone is hosting a party and decides he/she (yes, there are “he”s in Paparazzi!) wants to sell Paparazzi, I give them all of the commission I made from their party to purchase a starter kit. It seems fair. Many of my friends who sell Paparazzi meet their annual sales goals by the shear amount they purchase for themselves to wear or as gifts for friends and family so the sales goals are not absurd 🙂
Glad you liked it Shelby. Thanks for chiming in and sharing your thoughts and experience.
Once you get your $99 starter kit, can you order individual pieces as you need them or do you have to order the next kit?
Yes, once you get the kit you have access to purchase the jewelry at wholesale and there is no minimum purchase. However, you must purchase a certain amount per year (around 100 pieces a year) to continue to purchase at a wholesale price.
What Paparazzi kit did you purchase to get started? $99, $299 or $499?
I believe it was the $99. But depending on how well you do, you’ll find you wish you bought a higher package.
I am a consultant and share the profits with my daughters! We love it! It honestly sells itself:-). We do low cost vendor events and Facebook virtual parties at this time. Haven’t been able to secure an in-home party yet but I’m sure we will sometime!
That’s great! It definitely does sell itself. It’s just a matter of getting out there so people can see the product. So great job!
I am very interested in giving this a try. I have been an independent consultant before and really enjoyed it. I love jewelry and am eager to get started.
Sounds good Beth. Feel free to give it a shot!
Thinking about becoming a rep, but wondering about the hostess plan for in home parties. Is there one? Or do you as a rep make up your own?
I believe you create your own. But the company helps you in terms of what to do and how to promote it.
Corporate states that you must give at least 5% of sales to hostesses as FREES. Meaning, for every $100 their party sells, they get one free piece. I always do more than that though. BTW, February is DOUBLE hostess reward month!! 🙂
Thanks for providing that additional info.
I tried selling Paparazzi a few years ago. I was intrigued by the beatiful pictures online, did a lot of research. However, I was dissapointed when I received my jewelry kit. The quality was very poor, the jewelry was so thin and breaks easily. I have seen better quality jewelry in Walgreens for the same price. I ended up doing only 1 home show, and selling the rest of it at a garage sale for 2 bucks each. I did not want sell something that is a poor quality product. One of my friends had her jewelry break only a week after, and a couple of my pieces were broken upon receiving it. I would not sell this jewelry for $5. This jewelry looks like stuff I see in the dollar store.
Thanks for sharing your experience. I wonder if things have changed since the few years ago when you first started with the company. I think given the price point no one is expecting this stuff to last forever. I liken the quality to what you find in the mall accessory stores where no one is expecting that this is some tiffany jewelry especially when it’s so affordable. But thanks for sharing your experience and insight.
I’m a paparazzi consultant and yes things have changed since then like with any companies.
I’m a single mom that is a teacher and I am looking for a way to supplement my income. A friend of mine sells Premier Design jewelry and I was thinking of going that route. While researching PD I came across Paparazzi and I haven’t read too many negative reviews like I have with other businesses. I am really giving Paparazzi more consideration now but I have never met anyone that sells Paparazzi nor heard of it until I started my research. I am concerned about quality so I’m thinking of buying some pieces on line before I fully commit. Thank you for your post. It has helped me lean more to Paparazzi.
You’re very welcome. The quality is on un par with the accessory jewelry you find at malls. I was very impressed with the look and quality of the pieces. And trust me for $5 they go flying. But check them out and let me know what you think.
I ended up buying 6 pieces from a consultant here in town and I ended become a consultant! I recieved my kit on Friday and will be having my first party next weekend 🙂
Sounds good Vanessa. Keep us posted!
Hi, I have quite an interest about getting into this paparazzi business. Although I am confused from a few different things I have read. Like if everything is $5, how could u possibly make 45% profit? Or about Marking stuff up to make up difference so u make a profit?? Well then it doesn’t makes everything $5?? Thanks for any info. Tina
Thanks for your question. I need to make that more clear in my review. But basically as a consultant you get the jewelry and accessories at wholesale prices. So where we may get the pieces for $2.75, you sell them for $5 and that’s your profit percentage. You could sell it for more. But $5 seems to make the products move. I just became a consultant recently and I was just showing my mom all the sample products that came with my starter pack and she bought $40 worth of rings, bracelets and necklaces in one sitting. I wasn’t even trying to sell her. But when she saw the items and heard the price point, she just went nuts. lol
So I think the price point of $5 works well from my limited experience but it can be more if you want. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thanks Eddy for the quick reply. I am wondering after u sell your starter kit do u just purchase individual pieces as needed ? R they all $2.75 each? Thanks! Tina
Also is it ok to get info from you here or do you have another contact?
You’re welcome Tina.
Yes you purchase them for 2.75 each. Most all pieces are sold individually. There are the kids line (starlet shimmer) that are less but the main product line you can purchase for $2.75 as a consultant. Feel free to ask any other questions here. I’m sure it will help others too. But I can email you too if you want.
Ok Eddy, here r some more questions, u said it was ok! 🙂
Just wondering how many pieces on average u order to replenish after each party? Is there a monthly quota to meet? And lastly not to sound skeptical but what is the quality of the jewelry beacause it is so inexpensive? Does it hold up? Thank you for your time, Tina
Great questions Tina. I definitely need to add an FAQ above. I’m new to the company so bear with me.
The jewelry is made offshore so that helps keep the costs low like most products we all buy.
The quality is on par with the jewelry you find at accessories stores in the mall. So these aren’t pieces you’ll be passing down as family heirlooms years and years. But they look very fashionable. Some pieces that came in my starter kit seem like something you would find in higher end stores but without the higher end price tags. Lol
Most parties average 20 to 200 pieces sold depending on how well the hostess has promoted the party.
Restocking is up to you. You buy as little or as much as you want. If your inventory is big then replinish what sold if you are trying to build your inventory levels up then most consultants will put all the profits back in and increase their inventory since variety helps sell more. It also depends on how many more parties you already have booked.
No monthly minimum unless you have a team below you then its 25 to 50 pieces depending on your level.
Hope this helps.
Eddy, I have been thinking of becoming a paparazzi consultant for quite a while now, but always have been hesitant, but after reading your review and the positive comments from others, I think it is time to bite the bullet. I LOVE Paparazzi Jewelry, so I already know the product and that will make it easier to sell. Thank you for the review.
Hey Jeanne, I’m glad my review could help you make an informed decision. Please come back and report how you do with this opportunity. It’s one of the few I’m seriously considering as another source of income.
Jeanne, there are a ton of great new changes at Paparazzi. Now is a great time to join. If you do not have a consultant to talk to and have questions please let me know. I would be happy to help.
Eddy I just came across your review, thank you. There are so many new business or work from home things popping up and they are not all legit. I have been a paparazzi rep for a couple years and have never had luck with other companies. People love the $5 price tag and that it is right in front of them, I’ve never had luck selling from a catalog or online when I was with other companies. In order to be successful there is an investment of time and money to be made it is not a get rich quick scheme. I do events and parties, but love basket parties… I have sent out a basket of jewelry and at the end of the week the hostess is handing me $200+ which if needed I can keep it all or reinvest.
Also, as of 8/23 there are some changes to note… the kits are changing the smallest being $99 and there will no longer be a $40 enrollment fee. Website is still free but we will be able to accept online orders now 🙂
You’re very welcome. And yes there are so many new work at home opportunities that are scams and it’s exactly why we’ve created this blog. In any event, thanks for sharing your experience with Paparazzi. It’s definitely one of the few home businesses I feel is easier to make money with because of the nature of the product and that it’s affordable. The fact you can advertise the product just by wearing it makes it even better. Thanks for the updates on the changes. I’ll reference your comment regarding this. Please keep me posted on how you’re doing with the company!
I just discovered Paparazzi Jewelry. I am not a fan of hosting parties at my residence, mainly because of the size of my apartment. I will be hosting a Facebook Paparazzi Party next week, so I will keep you posted as to how successful that is. If it is a success I may consider becoming a consultant! Thank you for this blog, it was very informative.
Sounds good. Keep us posted. Just keep in mind that running a business is a long term thing. It’s something that you may need to give many months before seeing some initial results. Too often people go into a business with an employee mentality and give up if they don’t see results right away or a couple of weeks. So just keep that in mind for this or any business.
I look forward to your update. Thanks for supporting this blog! I appreciate it!
Eddy, thanks your excellent work on this review, now my wife is a happy Paparazzi independent consultant, it was an excellent timing for us, she quit her job to spend more time with our daughters, but she wants to be active and get any extra income to help the household, so she did signed up and she is really happy with the company, the products are really nice. It has taken some time for my wife to build the foundation of her business but she is getting there really fast (a month). Now we are getting ready to go to a Business Expo in South Texas (McAllen, Tx) to sell the product and show the business opportunity to several of my wife’s friends that are very interested. The reaction from all the women that have talked to my wife about these products has been awesome, the product really sells by itself.
So I have to thank you again Eddy for your great work and timing on this review.
I am going to try to keep you updated on the progress of this business.
Sounds Jorge. Please keep me updated.
This was a great review. I am a fairly new Paparazzi consultant and I love it!!! I teach elementary school in NC and therefore needed a way to supplement my income. While in not making millions of dollars YET, selling Paparazzi has given me some extra income!!
I’m glad you’re doing well with Paparazzi and making some extra money! Keep us posted.
I am a Paparazzi Independent Consultant and I love it! I mostly do large events but I also do a few home parties and Facebook parties as well as sell on my website (Link removed by admin. No self promotions links allowed.) Thank you for posting such a great article. I love when people give positive reviews about Paparazzi!
Sounds good. So tell us more about how you do large events. Are you selling a flea markets or something?
Have you been doing this for extra income? Feel free to share more about your experience. Thanks.
Eddy, it was great to come across your article this evening. I am a new Paparazzi consultant and love the product. After creating a large collection for myself, I thought it would be worthwhile to become a representative. I love all the flexibility they give and the 45% commission is definitely nice. Hosting parties are not all home-based anymore. I like that I can sell it from Facebook, Instagram and other Social Media outlets in addition to at home parties.
Thanks for chiming in. It’s great that you actually tried the product for a while before deciding to sell it. I always think you have better success that way. Have you successfully made any sales or money with the company yet without using home parties?
Hey Eddy, another great review! This sounds like something to get into if you love jewelry like I do. But … that being said, I’m just not a home-party type. I don’t even have my own place and I’m looking into things that are virtual that I can take anywhere. So not for me but definitely for someone who likes that approach.
Thanks for getting “back to work” providing us with reviews of possible ways to make money.
Good to hear from you Ana! Thanks for the kind words as usual. I’m totally there with you. I’m more of an all virtual person as well. I want to be able to make money anywhere. That’s why I’ve loved my business all these years. I’ve literally run my business while being on vacation in the caribbean, on cruise ships, etc. And that’s the type of freedom I love. So I totally agree with you!
Thanks for chiming in and the continued support. It’s always appreciated!
And thanks again, Eddy, for making it easier to comment. It got kind of sticky there for a while with that … what was that hoop we had to jump through to reply before? I just had that with another site I liked. Oh well …
Well thanks for bringing it to my attention. I had a few people mention it. But when you mentioned it too, I knew it must have really been a pain in the ass. It was a service I was using which in the past was very easy to use disqus but they must have made some changes that made it harder for everyone. Honestly I was wondering why I was getting less comments. I thought I may have lost my touch. LOL
Mmmm … it was apparently easy on your end, which makes me think of how I’ll want responses in my blog. I’ll definitely keep it in mind but I won’t use it. Yes, it kind of made the responder jump too many hoops, asking for a password I wasn’t sure I had to create then and there … I’d just as soon not have it on my site. Glad it’s not here anymore. We still have to enter our email and name while responding, but no pw.
Yes it was easy on my end to remove because it was just a plugin on my site that I could turn off. In the past disqus was very good. But obviously they made some changes that made it more complicated. So lesson learned. Thanks again
I posted yuesterday but don’t see it here. Do you only show the ones that agree with you?
I responded to your comment yesterday here: https://www.workathomenoscams.com/2014/06/10/jamberry-nails-review-can-you-make-money-with-nail-art/comment-page-1/#comment-25848
I don’t expect everyone to agree with me and always welcome intelligent debate and discussion which is why I approved your comment. But if you have an actual comment about Paparazzi Jewelry, I’d be happy to hear it.
Just wanted to say I always love reading your posts Eddy. Keep up the good work!
Thanks so much! I LOVE hearing from you guys. So keep the comments coming!
Always welcome Eddy.
Nice. Low price points also gives you such a larger audience. I sold Avon for four years and did well. I would think about sampling some for look and durability, then if I could afford it, make a small investment and hit the farmers markets and craft bazaars held over the summer. I did well that way. Sounds like this could do well too, I ran across another hbb the other day. Fingernail polish sheets. Jamberrynails. Heard of them?
Another great Eddy!
I agree there is definitely a great appeal to this business for the various reasons you mentioned.
Hitting farmer markets and other flea marketers during the summer is a great idea. We have so many of them here in my town, it’s something I’m seriously considering.
I heard about Jamberrynails, it’s something I may review in the near future. What is HBB?
Thanks for chiming in and sharing your thoughts. If you decide to do this, please come back and share your experience. It’s always great hearing from my readers.
Eddy, thanks for all the information you share with us. HBB could mean Home Based Business, just a thought. Again, thanks for being the generous person that you are.
Thanks Ron! Samone clarified that for me. LOL
I thought she was using an abbreviation for a specific home based business that I wasn’t aware of.
In any event I appreciate the kind words and support Ron. It’s always good to hear from my readers.
Hbb=my lazy abbrev for a home based biz.ðŸ˜ƒ
This may not be relevant anymore, but I just wanted to let you know Jamberry Nails actually don’t contain any polish. They are nail wraps made of vinyl. Basically like stickers, but you use heat to get them to really bond to the nail. You can stick them on without heat, but they don’t last nearly as long. I really love wearing them. I am a consultant, but I’m actually looking into switching over to Paparazzi, which is what brought me to this site. 🙂 So far, I’m loving what I’m reading!
