Pippa O'Connor and Mrs Makeup lose thousands of euro as company goes under

Influencers Pippa O'Connor and Mrs Makeup were dealt serious financial blows this week with the news that a furniture company has gone bust.

Both Pippa and Mrs Makeup (real name Michelle Regazzoli-Stone) lost out after the closure of Hayburn & Co, which is based in the North of Ireland.


Speaking on Liveline on RTÉ Radio One today, Michelle revealed that she'd paid the company €12,000 for her dream kitchen earlier this year.

She and her husband drove up to the company's headquarters in Ballymena, Co Antrim yesterday to find that there was no-one there and no sign on the door.


In a statement on its website, Rayburn & Co has said:

"Due to difficult trading conditions, the business has ceased trading with immediate effect.

"All known creditors, including those customers who have fully paid or paid in part for goods are being contacted by post."

Michelle had recently been asked for more money for the work and was asked to promote the company on her social media. She had been finalising designs for her kitchen just last month, she said.

"I’m absolutely gutted. We have two kids. It’s six weeks from Christmas," she told host Joe Duffy.


She is now convinced that she and her husband won't see their money again.
