Girly Junk, the brainchild of Robin Osborne, older sibling in this duo, was years in the making. Freshout of college, Robin took her blonde ambition to the beauty industry working for cutting edge Cosmetics Company, Stendahl and also Elizabeth Arden. Now mind you this was during a very fun time for cosmetics, the 80's, a time when big hair, bright cosmetics and 1000 watt lip gloss RULED! Robin dominated the scene until she took a detour
from the work all weekend mentality of Cosmetics and parlayed her Customer Service skills into IT industry of all places, where she dazzled the minds andhearts of computer geeks everywhere.
In the summer of 2002, Robin decided to come out of cosmetic hiding, putting her powdered nose to the grindstone to create a boutique that filled a void here on the South Shore. Fantastic, fun cosmetics that you would normally have to hit Boston to find, combined with her funky cosmetic know-how in application.
She couldn't do it all alone folks. In typical little sister fashion I left Los Angeles & the film industry after years of honing my skills at taking orders from beautiful people(come by anytime to hear celebrity stories and gossip), to follow Robin. Realizing we made such a great team was easy and having a store was a blast, but 3 years and 3 kids later, we re-invented ourselves (much like our role model Madonna)and kicked the store to the curb to focus on the fun part, Makeup!
