Around 6 months after Colour Junkie launched online, Life Pharmacy Northlands Mall emailed me and asked if they could stock my stuff! Of course I said yes! I was literally jumping up and down basically in tears. It was a dream come true. They’re a chain company so the chances of being stocked elsewhere was likely if the customers liked my products. The owner ordered 15 palettes and a few pigment jars at first which all sold out the same day she put them on display! That was insane enough, then she called me and said “hey can we get 30 palettes?” And I said yes. 2 days later they sold out. Then, for the next 6 months they ordered 50-80 palettes PER MONTH. Here’s what my first ever retail display looked like!
After being stocked in the pharmacy for around 5 months, Colour Junkie was added to the cosmetics area with all the other brands! We were lucky enough to be RIGHT NEXT TO AUSTRALIS. They’re like, huge. To be sitting next to them and to travel to the store in Christchurch from my home in Wellington was something I’ll never forget! I got to know the store staff there at all the other cosmetic counters and they were raving about my products saying that even older women enjoy them. Here’s what they looked like!
Where to from here? Well, due to being stocked in selected Life pharmacies nation wide, we have completely redone all of our packaging and we are currently having our own custom retail display units made up! I can’t wait to show you all what they look like once they are in stores. I plan on going to every single store we are stocked in and vlogging it all! Exciting times ahead x
