World renowned cosmetics giant, MAYBELLINE NEW YORK now has a Lagos branch and boy are we happy. Now, we can sing along to the popular theme song, May Be She Is Born With It Nigerian style. (Now thinking of the Nigerian beauties that would best represent the brand as ambassadors….. Tiwa Savage has to be one of them – just thinking aloud here ) .
This is great news for cosmetics lovers for an international brand such as MAYBELLINE to have an outfit in Lagos. Yes we have indigenous brands from successful Nigerian Make-up artists Banke Meshida-Lawal and Tara Fela-Durotoye but having an international brand that produces affordable cosmetics with a fantastic product range is also healthy competition.
Its also fantastic that the brand’s Artistic Director in Nigeria is the super amazing makeup artist, Bimpe Onakoya who has been long overdue for a superb role as this – must say she is the perfect person for the job.
These are the people you need to know representing the MAYBELLINE New York brand in West Africa – Bukola Balogun (Brand Manager, L’Oreal Central West Africa ), Idorenyen Enang (Managing Director, L’Oreal Central West Africa), Segun Ajayi (Commercial Manager, L’Oreal Central West Africa), and Sekou Coulibaly (General Manager, Consumer Products Division, L’Oreal Central West Africa).
MAYBELLINE NEW YORK had its official launch at the Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos with an exclusive party consisting of some of the finest and biggest names in the Nigerian Beauty industry as well as friends from the entertainment world – Tiwa Savage, Ifeoma Williams, Ono Bello, Rita Dominic, Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Stephanie Linus, Banke Meshida-Lawal, Agabni Darego, Jumia Shagaya, Bola Balogun, Fade Ogunro and more.
