This week's guest is lipstick queen, Poppy King.
Poppy King was HUGE in the 90's thanks to her range of Poppy lipsticks. If you’re a woman over 30 chances are you owned at least one of them, but probably more. Her first range was named after empowering female characteristics and within 3 short years, Poppy Industries had become the biggest cosmetics company in Australia.
At its height, it was turning over $8mill a year, which was huge in the '90s but in the early 2000s the company dissolved and Poppy moved to NY to work for Estee Lauder.
Now she’s back with a new range called Lipstick Queen, available in Mecca, and she talks to Mia about what it was like building a business at a time when female entrepreneurship wasn't a thing.
Guest: Poppy King, Founder of Lipstick Queen
Producer: Rachel Corbett & Rachael Hart
