Billings, MT- When you think of vending machines, you might think of snacks and drinks. But a small business in Billings has introduced a new kind of vending machine to Rimrock Mall that sells cosmetics.
Standing in the middle of the mall – don’t miss the dazzling pink Latina Chingona Beauty Vending Machine.
The products inside are handmade by owner Anzuhe Aceves in his home workshop.
The 20-year-old started her business to spend time, care for, and support her two children. During Covid, Aceves created her online store that offers a mix of cosmetics, jewelry and boutique clothing.
But when Aceves started in business about two and a half years ago, when he shared his first set of eyelashes online, he didn’t expect a reaction from the community.
she said: And I was like, “What do you know?” So I started buying little by little. I don’t know how I got here, but honestly it just happened. “
Her beauty business is booming right now, and Aceves says she spends most of her time preparing, packing, and shipping the packages she purchases.
Vending machines in Rimrock Mall cater to the demand for Latina Chingona products, providing people with easy access and an opportunity to try out new beauty products at affordable prices.
Aceves says one of the reasons she installed the vending machine is because “I found it easier to go to the vending machine than to wait. It takes about an hour, and for eyelashes it takes an hour and a half. , you just reuse it, you don’t have to throw it away, you can try different styles.”
Aceves also prides itself on collaborating with other companies and artists, stating that they strive to foster a culture of inspiration rather than competition.
Like Art Into Beauty in Valencia, who made Acebeth’s claws.
Aceves plans to expand beyond Rimrock Mall and hopes to soon have a vending machine in the city of Billings with her products and other collaborators.
