The L’Oreal team consisting of Sekou Coulibaly (General Manager – Consumer Products Division), Bukola Balogun (Brand Manager – Maybelline), Kesiena Ogbemi (Group Brand Manager – Soft Sheen Carson) presented the brand and their products to the excited VIP guests and believe me when I say they have got some great things lined up with you, the African woman, as its main concern.

They had products like their Dark & Lovely Color Intensity hair colour that I can’t wait to try, the Maybelline Colossal Mascara that I am falling in love with and the Maybelline Kajal that already has my heart. Plus a little something for the men, the Blue Ice deodorant.

The tea party provided an avenue for L’Oreal to inform those in attendance about its upcoming activities and product launches for the year 2014, as well as to create a platform for the attendees to meet and mingle with one another which L’Oreal deems imperative to promote unity in the beauty industry.

It was so refreshing to see a Nigerian man talking so passionately about makeup. Ladies, they exist and are out there. Some of them get why we do what we do!

The event kicked off with Bimpe Onakoya (the Makeup Artistic Director) introducing the Clear Smooth Powder, which we all literally couldn’t wait to try. Then the guests were treated to individual matches and samples of the powder which will be launched to the general public later this month.

There was also a question and answer session with Kesiena Ogbemi on hair products, and guests were also given the opportunity to check out available L’Oreal products including the kajal & mascara.

So who wants to be the first to try the Maybelline Clear Smooth All In One Powder?” Bimpe said with a smile.

The event rounded up with a tour of the L’Oreal Ikeja office which spans two floors with a fabulous salon, marketing office and more. We were then led to the lunch room where we nibbled on sumptuous finger foods, had some hot tea & coffee (perfect for the rainy day) while networking.

L’Oreal stressed its appreciation for its VIP guests and what they do, and treated them all to gift bags.

      LOL! Had to scroll back up to the pictures to see this person who made you so alarmed that you had to use exclamation marks like wild fire.
      I don’t know what she looked like before but she looks pretty and fresh to me oh.

      Apparently that’s the latest style of skirts now. A plain one won’t have looked so bad. Weave on and Photoshop cover a lot of sins.

    i like this site, its positive and has great commentary .But as a reader i would like to suggest something be done about the layout it is waaay too busy. Gives me a headache should be toned down a bit.

    Loooool, Looooooooool at the person Liz Yemoja is giving heart attack. Its not that serious na. Perhaps not one of her most glam looks, but shes rocking it natural. Looks okay to me!! Over sabi is a disease.

    Really lovely! Nice to put a face to the name- Bella Naija’s Jennifer looks really lovely. So jelux of all the freebies they got. I spy one of my favourite entrepreneurs- Chinma of girly essentials- best customer service I’ve had in a while. Now popping over to the site to continue my long abandoned shopping; and Chinazor and Sisi Yemmie, whose blogs I follow. That clear smooth finish all in one powder looks interesting. Hope girly essentials has it now. Will not like to pay delivery twice o. 😉 Good on L’oreal for hosting this tea party, good to know that the Nigerian market is really opening up to international brands who take the market serious enough to organise such events.

    [email protected], take your birth very well infact have a rebirth of yourself. Bella Naija Comments are informative but since the last few weeks you have been commenting on this blog, you have been a turn off. There is a good saying that says” when you get to Rome, behave like a roman” that means conform and in this situation, the highest standard. Please do us a favour and do not comment any more expect if it’s going to be an intelligent and informative comment. Thanks

    • Alero

      March 12, 2014 at 9:02 am

      Except** actually,”except if it’s going to be an intelligent and informative comment” 😀 . I agree with you. In the past,I looked forward to BN comments much more than even the stories and pictures. The comments made me understand that we have highly intelligible random commentators in Nigeria; however, lately, I am beginning to have doubts. But everyone should have a say though.

    LMAO! bleed blue be nice! hahhahaha @ bolthy. Deb, sadly you do not have the power to tell him not to comment on this blog again. You don’t pay for his internet neither do you have control over him. Yes he is like a fly one just wants to flick away but sadly we will just have to live with his like and Dj Stelch too. Hopefully, very soon they will get bored with this site. BN is causing it by now introducing LIB type posts on this blog. That’s why more of them are “emanating” (to borrow Miss SA’s term) on this blog. lol

    • L'afrique

      March 11, 2014 at 11:16 pm

      eDreamz and DJ STELCH make me squirm too. Their comments are so irritating. But yeah, you’re right, the internet is for everybody so we no fit shout.

    If only you guys know how desperate l’oreal is. Some big naijahotjobs brands will lose out, …let’s just keep watching…..emerging market domination….

    @Lol Yes oh L’Oréal doesn’t play at all. Strictly about business and numbers, serious headache for indigenous brands.
