Ok, let's quickly do this......

I bought this brush egg at the last LMUF (Lagos Makeup Fair).

I bought it because i was tired of washing my brushes with my hands...i usually dip the brushes in warm soapy water and then twirl it round and round in the center of my palm. That always gives me a weird feeling which i detest. So before i left for the fair, i put  '1 Brush egg' on my 'to-buy' list.

Sooooo cute!

I bought a light pink one and i've used it about 15 times since then. Once for general wash day, and the other times for random washes.

Reputable online makeup stores in Nigeria

Good Morning!

One of the questions i get asked a lot is "Where do you buy your makeup from?"

Now, the fact is that i don't buy a lot of makeup these days...gone are those days when i used to buy makeup like it was going out of fashion. These days, i only buy what i absolutely need....not what i think i want.

I hardly walk into stores to buy makeup......i do most of my makeup shopping online. The only time i buy in-store is when i attend makeup fairs and when i go to Little Extra's Store in Festac.

So, in this post, i would be sharing with you some of the reputable Nigerian Online Makeup Stores i know....some of them i have patronized, some of them i haven't.

Most of these stores listed above accept payment on delivery...isn't that just great?

The DF Store.

This is a Nigerian pre-order store which carries makeup and skin care products. They don't keep anything in stock, but anything that is made or sold in the U.S.A is available for preorder. This means that you can contact them and tell them what product you want, they buy/ order it for you over there and ship to Nigeria. They deliver all over Nigeria, which means that your products gets to your door step.

However, you have to pay to their bank account before your package is sent to you because pay-on-delivery is not possible *I'm sure you understand why*. Processing and delivery takes about 3 weeks.

I'm not sure they have an online store because they don't keep things in stock, but if you are on Instagram, follow them @the_df_store . They regularly put up pictures of products you might want to buy through them. However, if you want something that wasn't posted on their page, you can ask them for it. If you are on BBM, add them up with 569026A8. For whatsapp, contact them with plus12189797906. *My 'plus' sign is not working, so i wrote it in words before the numbers. Add your 'plus' sign before the numbers when trying to save it ok?*.


For really nice brush sets and brushmats, you can buy from Cheecheelive. Follow her blog HERE. Or add her up on BBM D1F880CE.

So, these are the online makeup stores i know. I'm sure there are some others, but these are the ones that have been brought to my attention and some of the ones i love as well.

Have fun shopping!

Beauty Africa Exhibition & Conference 2016

Good evening.....

How many of you are excited to read the title of this post? You don't know how excited i am that the Beauty Africa Exhibition & Conference is coming to Nigeria this year again! This is the third consecutive year the event would be holding in Nigeria.....*whoooop-whooooop!*.

Oh, and Blushes 'n Dimples is once again an official blogger for the event *whooop-whoooop again!* The first event in 2014 was amazing! I haven't forgotten it at all. The second one in 2015 was even better....and this year 2016, they plan to surpass the past two events!

If you attended the first two editions, i'm sure you understand what i'm talking about, and can't wait to attend this one. However, if you didn't attend any of them, here's another opportunity you don't want to miss *i wouldn't miss it if i were you!*.

The conference is aimed at all Beauty Professionals and business owners, and it's a 3-days event. There will be expert speakers from the region (Nigeria), and from across the globe as well. The speakers will showcase the latest methods and insights from each of the sectors throughout the 3 days. There will also be hour-long live demonstrations on models from Beth Model Agency.

Now, there will be something new that wasn't done at the conference of the past 2 years. This 2016, there would be a panel of experts who will be discussing the A-Z of the manufacturing of beauty products, looking at the opportunities, the red tape and logistics involved in this process.

And just like was done the last two times, there would be a dedicated session on marketing, Social media, and business opportunities for Beauty Professionals who are looking to enhance their branding. customer reach and drive revenue.

Oh, and there is a very interesting line-up of speakers...people who i'm certain that you would love to meet.

Did i mention already that attendance is free? All you need do is register HERE

I would be doing follow-up posts here to let you know all that would be happening at the Exhibition / Conference........

Stay tuned..

B 'n D Makeover | Ft. Lolade

Lolade has been a blog reader and a BBM friend for a loooong time, and about 2 weeks ago, i met her for the very first time!

She has very beautiful skin, and if not for the fact that she's a very busy person and also lives far from me, i would have loved to work on her face as often as possible.

Beautiful and clear skin plays a huge part in achieving a flawless makeup base. I thoroughly enjoyed working on Lolade's face.

PRODUCT REVIEW | Sonia Kashuk Highlighter

For a long time, i wanted a highlighter......well, because everywhere i looked on the social media, i saw glow! Blinding glow! Some looked like they bathed themselves with their highlighters, and some were just perfect and in the right places.

So at the LMUF i got the Sonia Kashuk highlighter because i had seen a few people use it on Instagram, and also because their products were on sale *you know awoof feels good*.

This highlighter comes in a gold compact case with a magnetic flap.

At first when i started using the product, it looked like it wasn't showing up at all, but it turned out that as with most new products, you have to rub the brush well into the highlighter to break the surface *because it's usually as though there's a dry layer covering the product*.
