New Orleans native Supa Cent was filled with tears of joy on Monday morning after making a million dollars in less than two hours.
Supa started off doing hilarious videos on the popular social platform “The Vine” in 2013 and she instantly became a viral sensation. She later started her own cosmetic business “The Crayon Case” in 2017 which is an eye-shadow palette of bold colors that resembles a box of crayons. The social media sensation has since taken the beauty community by storm.
The Black-owned cosmetics mogul hosted a Cyber Monday sale on Nov. 26 and by 10:13 a.m. that morning, she received over 10k orders. Minutes later, she grossed $1 million of revenue in just over an hour. She took to Instagram to record the experience and broke down in tears of joy.
“Million Dollar Day in a hour in a half😢. GOD THANK YOU‼️,” Supa wrote. “A b**ch busted tables and cleaned hotel rooms. Don’t tell me it’s not possible 😢♥️🙌🏾🖍💯.”
Fans applauded the New Orleans native on her much deserved success.
“Congratulations. I followed you since your storytime days and you deserve this! ❤️.”
“You are an inspiration! Congrats queen👏🏽!”
“you’re a true inspiration. You’re proof that if you wisely invest the money from your regular job into a business venture you’re passion about, you can become your own boss and a millionaire. I love your glow up ❤️!”
“Definition of making something from absolutely nothing !! Congratulations Queen ❤️🙌🏾.”
“When I grow up I wanna be like you Queen👸🏽😘.”
Many people don’t know, but Supa Cent worked as a waitress and housekeeper for years before cashing in on her passion. However, she stepped out on faith and turned her passion into money.
“Don’t hate on yourself,” Supa told WDSU during an interview in June. “Along your journey, many people are going to tell you what you can’t do and what you shouldn’t do. Don’t be that person to yourself.”
