Younique vs Limelight Comp Plan Breakdown…

In this article I will be doing my best to give you an idea of the two compensations plans and some of their similarities and some of their differences.

Younique vs Limelight Earning on Commissions:

Younique: 20%- 30% based on your status rank (your first $1,000 you will earn 20%)

LimeLight: 20-35% based on your sales and/or team volume (your first $1000 you will earn  20%)

after the first $1000 you can earn up to 35% commission on your own personal sales.

Younique vs Limelight Monthly Sales Requirements:

Younique: Get 20% and then 25% after your first $1,000 (must maintain a minimum of $125 in sales every rolling 3 months)

LimeLight: No sales requirements to be paid the base 20%.  (Must sell $1,000 first in order to unlock the ability to earn an additional 5-15% on your sales! And team group volume)

Younique vs Limelight Earning on your Downline:

You start to earn on your downline starting at PINK Status … Here is a breakdown of the different color levels and what you would earn at each level:

Pink 3% (0% on anyone in your downline who has promoted to Green or higher)

Blue 4% (0% on anyone in your downline who has promoted to Green or higher)

Green 5% (But only 3% on any team in your downline who has promoted to Green or higher and 0% on any Greens or higher below them)

Orange 5% (But only 3% on any team in your downline who has promoted to Green or higher and 4% on any Greens or higher below them and 0% on any Greens or higher below that.)

Purple 6% (But only 3% on any team in your downline who has promoted to Green or higher and 4% on any Greens or higher below them and 0% on any Greens or higher below that.)

Black 6% (But only 3% on any team in your downline who has promoted to Green or higher and 4% on any Greens or higher below them and 5% on any Greens or higher under them and 0% on any Greens or higher below that.)

*So to sum it all up …. every status rank will unlock a new level you can earn on, However, if you start having greens level up 3 and 4 deep in your downline, you will lose MASSIVE amounts of money.

With LimeLight

Earn 5% on anyone you enroll (available after your first $300 sales)


Level one- 3%

Level two- 3%

Level three- 3%

Level four- 3%

IN ADDITION once you reach the top 3 ranks:

an extra 2-3% on leaders that pop up under you.

*If people under you promote faster than you, you are never penalized, you earn what your rank provides you, no matter what.


Younique: NONE

LimeLight: Once you become an official Beauty Guide ($1,000 cumulative sales) anyone you bring into your team, you will be MATCHED their first $1,000 in sales and paid on it as if they were your own sales. For example, you sell $500, your new recruit sells $500, that means you get paid as if you sold $1,000.
