The mum-of-two is taking her success in the beauty industry in her stride. “I don’t have anything against influencers, but I am not one,” she said on Tuesday morning at the official launch of her own “edit” of 28 limited-edition products for the brand. “I’m a fan of the brand, I used it before I began working with them.”
Celeste says she came across the brand years ago when her kids were little. “I remember when they were babies I would be walking through Woolworths crying, eating, crying, going to the beauty section to get nappies for the kids and seeing MCo and thinking ‘that looks awesome’,” she said. “It was cheap, I had no money, and when I used it, I thought, ‘This is the t*ts.’”
The brand’s owner Shelley Sullivan, said response to Celeste has been huge, particularly in the last 24 hours since she shared her relatable make-up video.
“Celeste literally cleared out the shelves in Woolworths, with sales up 500 per cent in stores after her tutorial,” Shelley said on Tuesday morning.
“She’s bullsh*t free beauty, she’s real and she’s now a tutorial expert, and that’s why so many people love her.”
A Woolworths spokesperson also confirmed the brand has literally sold out around the country due to the ‘Celeste Effect.’
“Yesterday we saw a spike in sales for MCoBeauty, with a 520 per cent growth vs this time last year,” the spokesperson said, “We have more stock in our distribution centres being sent to stores in the days ahead.”
Among other products, Celeste caused the $24 XtendLash tubular mascara to sell out as well as the Mega Balm All-Over Ointment, which retails for $12.
