These Nigerian beauty brands will make your abandon your faves

If you are a makeup enthusiast, then you have probably found yourself in this scenario. Your favourite product finishes and you want to replace it, you have searched everywhere for an item you really want but can’t find it even in all the popular stores. Call it defeat, dejection or confusion, okay maybe we are being overly dramatic but yes, nobody should have to feel that way. Especially when there are other options you may not have explored. 

Forget about what’s in stock and what isn’t. Forget about what you’ve tried. There are so many options now in the beauty industry in Nigeria that you would be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t discover new brands and find products that can work to deliver your desired look (sometimes without having to shop physically). This is the time to give new products a chance to amaze you the way your favorites have over the years.

When it comes to makeup, few things are as precious as finding an  “alternative” that gets the job done. I can’t say they have it all, however, from personal experience and opinions from experts who are guilty of routine acquisition, these brands have hidden gems that you need to discover.

From lipglosses to eyeshadow palettes, these under-the-radar brands go out of the way to offer unique items that can suit your beauty personality. 

Curious about the brands on the list and their MVPs? Let’s get into it.
