Last week on Thursday, Kiara Cosmetics won the People’s Choice Award at Westpac Business Awards 2019 – South & East region. Westpac Business Awards, People’s Choice Award was open to businesses who felt they have achieved success, with finalists decided by the community, customers, retailers and public. The New Zealand distributor for RevitaLash® Cosmetics was also a finalist for Best Emerging Business.
“It has been such a huge year for us and I am so proud of everything our tiny team have achieved. I am incredibly grateful to win the People’s Choice award - We couldn’t do it without the incredible support of everyone around us, especially our loyal RevitaLash stockists and customers. ” Annemarie Mason, Kiara Cosmetics
As a supporter of Look Good Feel Better NZ in 2019, Kiara Cosmetics hand-delivered 1,700 units to LGFB, who distribute the product to those with cancer, who need to restore their lashes and brows post treatment.
In the same week, the Kiara Cosmetics team donated their time and resources to host the sellout Pink event, EAT DRINK PINK. The event raised just over $11,800 for the cancer rehabilitation program, PaddleOn, run by Pinc & Steel. The PaddleOn program is a special program that helps men, women and teens make the transition from hospital wards, surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy, to balancing on a board and floating on the ocean. The program, run by trained cancer rehabilitation physiotherapists, is designed to assist people in gaining back strength, stamina and confidence and to have a better quality of life.
Kiara Cosmetics was a popular recipient of the award at last night’s gala dinner, capping off a ‘big year’. The People’s Choice Award adds to the Stand Out Award, Kiara Cosmetics received from RevitaLash® Cosmetics in January 2019. It was the first time RevitaLash® Cosmetics had felt compelled to present the award, and was in recognition of the dedication and commitment shown by Annemarie and her team. They recognised every aspect of the RevitaLash® Cosmetics business - the perfect translation of company ethos, brand values and mission that has been perfectly cemented into the New Zealand market.
