Beauty In Lagos

Hiya Guys!

My first encounter with Gifty's Daughter was at the first LMUF (see post here). As soon as I saw the NYX stand all the way in the far corner, I dropped everything and made a beeline for their stand and it has been pure love ever since. But the difficulty for me was, they were based in PortHarcourt. Imagine my glee when I discovered they had launched a store in Lagos too!

So a few weeks ago I visited the Gifty's Daughter store! This visit had been on my to-do list for a while, and without even realizing it, I had actually been to the store before it opened. A friend had read my blogpost about the Ben Nye Banana Powder (this one) and mentioned she'd been to a store in Ikeja that sold a variety of shades of the powder, but that it seemed like a new store, because they were kind of still setting things up in there. Nonetheless, I asked her for directions to it, and with my iPhone map at the ready I headed down to the store, only to find it shut.

It was when I read Dimma's post ( about her visit to the store and the description of its location that it clicked! THAT was the Gifty's Daughter store I went to! So random. So anyway, I went back again and this time they were open and I had a good look around and even picked up a few things. I will share my haul in a post tomorrow, but today I just want to share with you guys a few pictures I took while I was in the store. Enjoy!

Please excuse my tiny images. I shall be getting my paws on my new DSLR next month (August). So expect much sharper, clearer, higher-resolution images on BiL! *excited*

I really love how Lagos is changing rapidly, a few years ago we could only dream of finding a Z-palette in Lagos, let alone OCC LipTars or even a MAC STORE! I don't know about you guys, but I am loving all these beauty-stores popping up, they really excite me!
