The wait is over. Carter Beauty Cosmetics by Marissa Carter has arrived

The highly anticipated launch by one of Ireland’s most modern businesswomen has arrived: welcome, Carter Beauty Cosmetics. Renowned Cocoa Brown superstar Marissa Carter has brought a whole new addition to her already prestigious portfolio, which now includes 103 products. We adore brightening up our skin with Cocoa Brown products, so when Marissa announced on her newest venture, well, we knew it wouldn't disappoint.

A glamourous event took place in Dublin this week in the Morrison Hotel, where founder and CEO Marissa hosted a soirée of pink gin cocktails and delicious doughnuts layered in pink icing, all sprinkled with sugary goodness. While we chowed down on both the canapés and the stunning pink interior, the beauty guru arrived staying true to her brand wearing all pink, head-to-toe.

Between loyal Cocoa Brown fanatics and new experimenters, and a mantra like “Beauty Shouldn't Leave You Broke”, we already know her latest venture will be a hit. From long-lasting, jet-black gel liner, to high pigment, easy to blend shadows and colour-pop matte lipsticks, the Carter Beauty brand has something for everyone, without the hefty price tag. Her makeup range gives women a professional and quality product with prices ranging from €3.95 to €14.95. #TeamCB is taking over Ireland’s beauty market, and I'm all over it.
