Mary Kay - More Information
For more than 50 years, Mary Kay has been known for its iconic pink Cadillac. The color was created specifically for Mary Kay Ash in 1967 when she ordered the car from a Dallas dealership to be custom painted to match her lip and eye palette. She later rewarded the top five members of her sales force with a pink Cadillac and has been doing so each year ever since.
