Durban was abuzz with influencer activity on Tuesday for the launch of retailer Mr Price’s first-ever beauty brand; Scarlet Hill.

Why the name Scarlett Hill?

Well, according to the Mr Price website, scarlet comes from the colour ‘scarlet red’, which is a fierce and sassy version of our iconic MRP red.

“Hill goes way back, like back to 1985, to where the first-ever MRP store was opened, Brickhill Road. Yeah, talk about a throwback!” explained the brand.

For the launch, they partnered with musician Shekhinah and make-up artists Lungile Thabethe who will be the first-ever Scarlet Hill influencers.

They also have bath bombs, shower caps, eyelash curlers

Prices range from R9.99 to R89.99.
