Known for her sassiness and gorgeous looks, reigning Big Brother Africa (BBA) 2013 champion, Dillish Mathews, will launch a gloss and lipstick collection, on Valentine’s Day.
The collection called Dillish’lip will be launched under Vault Cosmetics.
Dillish announced this initiative through Facebook stating, “‘Dillish’” by Vault Cosmetics launches in Zimbabwe on 14th February 2014. Cool matte lipsticks and lip-glosses available soon. Namibia launch is in that same week too! Love yourself this Valentines.”
Vault Cosmetics founder, Jackie Muchanyuka-Mgido, who is originally from Zimbabwe, has worked in the United States as a Hollywood-based celebrity make-up artist.
This new initiative will be an addition to Dillish’s already impressive compendium of projects, among them her shoe and hair supplier business under High Definition Investments.
Mgido approached Dillish with the idea for the collection and the latter did not hesitate to proceed.
“I was impressed by Dillish’s humility. I approached her with the idea when I was just starting up the business without any money to offer her, yet she said yes. I was pleasantly surprised. She had just won Big Brother Africa, yet her humility was admirable,” said Mgido.
Enquiries have since been flooding in from South Africa and Nigeria with interests in getting involved in the business.
“We have been holding off printing because we needed to finalise the deal with Dillish first. We will hold an event on the of eve of Valentine’s Day (February 13th) where Dillish will take pictures with fans and sign autographs. The main event will then take place on Valentine’s Day at a local club, which we are still negotiating for with the owners,” Mgido said.
