What Marissa Carter definitely DOESN'T want you to say to her about Cocoa Brown
It drives her mad!
Nobody can deny the incredible success of Marissa Carter.
She started a salon a number of years ago, and has pretty much been building an empire ever since.
In fact, just last week Marissa launched launched a 103-product makeup range - pretty impressive.
I was lucky enough to sit down with Marissa Carter recently, to chat about her business successes.
There I was having a great time, asking loads of fun questions.
Until I landed on one that she was less than happy with (and I don't blame her to be honest).
I asked: "Were you surprised by the instant success of Cocoa Brown?"
I am a moron.
"I HATE when people say that Cocoa Brown had instant success," she said.
"It did not have instant success! Nothing was instant. I had built up loads of customers in the salon; that did not happen overnight."
"My salon was eight-years old when I started Cocoa Brown so I had that kinda ready-made base of customers to start out with."
So much hard work and time went into developing Cocoa Brown.
Carter Beauty Behind The Brand follows Marissa as she prepares to launch her most ambitious project yet: Carter Beauty Cosmetics.
The affordable range (it all comes in under €15) includes a jet black gel liner (€4.95) and high pigment eyeshadow palettes (€14.95), as well as colour-pop matte lipsticks (€6.95).
