The Baltimore school system failed to notify the city ethics board of a possible violation in a case involving a principal who recruited teachers to buy and resell Mary Kay products. "We are still the administrators of the BCPS ethics law," said Dana Moore, chair of the Baltimore Ethics Board. "There is a requirement that we be notified if there is an ethics complaint. We were not notified." But Michael Sarbanes, director of community engagement for city schools, said the system handled the issue as a personnel matter and that no one filed a formal ethics complaint.

When we "glimpsed" Seles Gadson at the Towson Farmers Market, the speech pathologist and Mary Kay leadership development trainee said her look that day was "Michelle Obama; the belt with the sweater. But, generally my style is anything that will create a conversation." The 28-year-old Woodlawn resident certainly got us talking, in her black cardigan Forever 21 vest over a black cotton tank from Nordstrom, belted with a wide black patent leather belt. It was also from Forever 21, as were her black pinstripe pencil skirt, crystal filigree ring and black patent leather doctors bag. Her black patent flat thong Blue Suede Shoes sandals and tortoise shell sunglasses were Filene's Basement finds.

Gloria Mayfield Banks didn't wear makeup, but went to a Mary Kay skin care seminar anyway to support the host, her best friend. She didn't intend to buy anything that night 14 years ago but walked out with a pink, signature Mary Kay bag filled to the brim with toner, lotion, cleanser and a face mask. She decided to sell the cosmetics to help pay for a messy divorce - a turn in her life that eventually made her a millionaire. Mary Kay was an unlikely choice for Mayfield Banks, who has an M.B.A.

W e've all heard how devoted Mary Kay women are to their brand. The popular cosmetics line encourages its mostly female sales staff to invite friends and neighbors into their homes, then sell them makeup, lipstick, perfumes and lotions that make them feel beautiful while profiting the company. A Mary Kay event is a combination Tupperware party and extreme makeover that seamlessly mixes the business of selling beauty products with the pleasure of using them. That pleasure was in short supply this week, however, after The Sun's Liz Bowie reported that several teachers at a city high school had complained that their principal pressured them into buying thousands of dollars of Mary Kay products they didn't want and were unable to resell.

Though several public officials have criticized a city principal who recruited Filipino teachers to buy and resell Mary Kay products, Baltimore school board President Neil E. Duke said Monday that the system responded appropriately in its handling of the case and that the board would not investigate any further. "A very thorough investigation was undertaken which resulted in an appropriate response by the administration," Duke said, adding that he would not comment on what that response was because it is a personnel issue.

Transparency should be the rule, especially with organizations supported by public funds. It seems as if the officials and governing body of the Baltimore City Public Schools raised the draw bridge without granting public access regarding the obvious and odorous actions of a principal who was pressuring Filipino teachers to purchase Mary Kay cosmetics ("School system defends response," March 16). Who will watch the watchers? McNair Taylor, Baltimore

The principal of a Baltimore City high school recruited seven Filipino teachers on her staff to buy and resell thousands of dollars of Mary Kay cosmetics, a business arrangement the teachers entered reluctantly but felt would keep them in good standing with their boss. Principal Janice Williams of the Institute of Business and Entrepreneurship high school in West Baltimore sometimes went to the teachers' classrooms last school year to ask for their credit cards to purchase lipstick, perfume, foundation and eye makeup, according to three of the teachers, who said they never intended to use the products and were unable to resell most of them.

You know a confident woman when you see one. There's something in her stride, in her lifted chin. Her complexion glows, her posture commands attention. Something about a confident woman makes you want to know her, or at least know more about her. Mary Kay Ash, the late founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, once said, "While clothes may not make the woman, they certainly have a strong effect on her self-confidence - which, I believe, does make the woman." Which is exactly why we wanted to get to know the four fashionable women profiled below.
