Vault Cosmetics breaks new ground

HARARE - Vault Cosmetics has entered two African countries, Zimbabwe and Namibia, following its successful launch on Saturday.

Vault is owned by Hollywood-based Zimbabwean make-up artist, Jackie Muchanyuka-Mgido, who launched the make-up line in 2012.

She wants to make it the  best  make-up line in Zimbabwe.

She is working in conjunction with 2013 Big Brother Africa reality TV winner, Namibia’s Dillish Matthews, a business woman in her own right.

“I just came back from Namibia and we launched our products at Dillish’s Salon,” Muchanyuka-Mgido said.

“Namibia was amazing, Dillish got support from many people including female ministers and we even got 800 likes on our Facebook page in one day.

“We did a double launch of her salon and our lipstick and lip-gloss.”

Jackie is a woman on a mission with a motto of taking everything one step at a time.

“We decided to start with lipstick and lip gloss because I have not trained anyone yet on how to apply make-up,” she said.

“I don’t want to be like the other make-up lines which just flood the market with products which people don’t know how to use.

“We will train people on how to apply our products and the training will have to take place here, it can’t be done outside Zimbabwe.

“This is our own product so it will be good to have people coming in and learning from us (me and my girls).”

Vault has received overwhelming response from people in different countries and Jackie intends to capitalise on that.

“In two months, we will be launching in Nigeria as the demand is high, people are waiting for the products.

“Dillish also has another film deal there and the launch will be the same as that of Namibia, just lip stick and lip gloss.

“We will not get make up into any country without training, I would rather do things slowly the right way than rush and not attain my dreams.

“I am also considering the South African market but it is saturated, there are a lot of products there plus I don’t think they know Dillish that much.

“I have been talking to many people but I’m not sure if we will be successful. But there are other markets that really want our products, including Angola, Zambia and many other African countries.
“The support and inquiries I have been receiving from different countries is overwhelming,” she said.

She explained that Dillish was one of the many Vault ambassadors to come, and there would be more, including a local one.

“Dillish is not the full face of Vault, just like Rihanna is not the full face of Mac, she just represents one part of our product,” she said.

“We will have several ambassadors and among them will be Zimbabweans.”
