Aussie beauty retailer Black Moon Cosmetics has closed its Melbourne store after six years in business, the company announced on Tuesday.
The company said it would be opening a store in Sydney’s Westmead, the largest suburb of Melbourne, in a few weeks.
Black Moon Cosums Melbourne stores are owned by Australian company AO Beauty, which is also owned by the parent company of Lush Cosmetics, Lush Australia and Lush Europe.
Black Night Cosmetics operates over 200 stores in the country, including in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Hobart, Darwin, Hobson’s Bay and Alice Springs.
In 2018, Black Moon Australia sold its flagship store, the Westmeads Black Moon Beauty store.
It had previously been owned by AO beauty.
The store closed on Monday.
Black night cosmetic company Black Moon has been at the forefront of the cosmetics industry since it opened its first store in Melbourne in 2016.
It has a portfolio of over 100 cosmetics brands including Black Night Cosmetic, Black Night Haircare, Blacknight Body Care, BlackNight Beauty and Black Night Face Care.
Blackmoon Cosmetics Australia CEO Rob Smith said the decision to close the store was not unexpected.
“We were just so pleased that Black Moon would close, it was the right decision,” he said.
“Black Moon was a really good store, a really big store, it had really been a good place to grow and to develop, and it’s a really, really good business.”
