Pippa O'Connor's make-up sells out less than a week after it was unveiled


Model Pippa O'Connor can add make-up mogul to her extensive CV as her cosmetics collaboration has sold out already.

The beauty blogger (30) launched her Pippa Palette with make-up brand Blank Canvas last week, and the Kildare native revealed that the product has sold out only days after it was unveiled.

It doesn't officially go on sale until next Monday, but fans have been able to snap theirs up on pre-sale through her website.

The mum-of-one has been working on the palette with Blank Canvas for the past 18 months after she got in touch with the brand's founder, Una Tynan.

"A couple of months ago I'd been really let down on a big make-up campaign that I was set to be involved in," said Pippa.

"I was really annoyed and upset by it, but in hindsight it was the best thing that could have happened to me.

"From that day on I was adamant I would do even better and produce something that I was a part of from scratch."

The project was one close to the model's heart, and she has even named the shades after her nearest and dearest.


"I wanted to keep it very personal and name the colours after people (and animals) special to me," Pippa wrote on her blog.

"My favourite shade without a doubt is Lulu - named after my mum Louise."

With her new venture into the world of cosmetics and her busy blog, Pippa has no time to expand her family just yet.

However, she is keen to give her young son Ollie (2) a baby brother or sister some day, despite the toll it takes on her body.

Speaking to Stellar, the fashionista admitted she would consider having plastic surgery after having another child.

"I'd definitely consider a boob job after my next child," she said.

"There'd be no point doing it now.

"I breastfed Ollie for four months. Your boobs are never the same."

Pippa also said she wouldn't rule out getting Botox to keep her youthful looks, though she is weary of getting addicted to it.

"I'm not against it, but I feel like, once you start, you can't stop," she said.

"When people do it excessively, it looks dreadful.

"Maybe we just don't notice the people who do it well."
