Mabotja, 22, a third and fi­nal year stu­dent, es­tab­lished her busi­ness Fancy Sap­phire Cos­met­ics at her Pre­to­ria North home in 2016. Grow­ing up, Mabotja would never leave the house with­out make-up, par­tic­u­larly lip­stick. “The fo­cus on my lips started in pri­mary school, I was never a Vase­line girl,” she says. “When I got to ter­tiary I wore lip­stick ev­ery­day of my life. I then started play­ing around with the dif­fer­ent lip­stick colours. That’s when I thought of hav­ing my own cos­met­ics line.” Mabotja says the lip­stick brands she loved wear­ing in­cluded Avon, Yard­ley and MAC. “I've al­ways looked up to these in­ter­na­tional brands, MAC, Estée Lauder, Bobby Brown, In­glot, just to name a few.
