  • Self Identified Competition

    My top three competitors or The Crayon Case, Juvia's Place, & GloGirl Cosmetics. The successful black owned cosmetic line all have something in common, they are big revenue generator coming for almost nothing. Crayon Case was established by Louisiana's very own Reynell Steward from New Orleans. She started out as a restaurant worker and then created this brilliant cosmetic line that was different and brought light to the black owned cosmetic lines making her not only my biggest role model in this category but my biggest competitor as well. Next, Juvia's Place, another black owned cosmetic line, became one of instagram's most looked to and favored Indies beauty brand created by West African Chichi Eburu, who have inspired us colored girls to wear vibrant colored eyeshadow. Last but not least, GloGirl Cosmetics, created by Tosca Hillman with a creativeness that simultaneously driven a passion into the cosmetic category. This cosmetic line represents pure boldness, power and uniqueness that has grasp the world into her cosmetics. I have chosen these big cosmetic brands & not small business because I know I have the potential and drive to become successful if even bigger than these companies some day. These big CEO's started from almost nothing turning nothing into something big and successful. With my drive, hustle and determination, I know I can do this and make it happen. What makes my business different from my competitors is because I have evaluated my target market. I have focused on skills and service that can benefit customers. My competitors didn't start focusing their skills and services that could have benefited their customers til after they gained revenue and seen what was best for customers and what customers didn't like in that niche. I have even did a campus survey on my college campus to women and girl who favor this niche, getting a good sight of what they like and dislike most about cosmetics. Also I aim to establish the best customer experience provided to my customers, getting them to become loyal and recommending potential customers. Lastly, My business is set apart from my other competitors because my business will posses diversity. Yes my products are created for colored woman but I will expand my horizons creating products for different types of genders, race, and ethnicities becoming a powerhouse something like L'Oreal Cosmetic Line.
