In the bag was brush wash, makeup remover and a High Intensity Pigment Eyeshadow Palette called Hajia Gambo Sawaba. Edwin came over and we played around with the colorful palette and came up with 3 interesting eye looks. Continue on to see…

On Sunday, during the long sallah holiday, I attended the launch of Philomena by St. Genevieve at The Social Place. St. Genevieve is a clothing line by Genevieve Nnaji, a very popular Nigerian actress. She has been trying to bring St. Genevieve for a while and I think she found the right partner to do it with – Jumia. The collection will be sold execulsivly on the e-commerce site starting from Wednesday (aka yesterday so go shop before it’s all gone)

The collection features wardrobe staples and basics for you to mix and match with other items in your wardrobe. I really like the dresses (especially the one Aunty Gene wore with the zips). All the items are below N10,000 which is affordable. Check out images from the event below. (Photography by Bunmi Ajakaiye)
