3 Events.1 Saturday.1 Nicole (INGLOTLive, MAC Viva Glam , House of Lunettes Store Launch)

Hi everyone. This post is a little different to the ones I usually do. This is one of me out and about. Not everyday product reviews 🙂

Last Saturday was the busiest day for me in my capacity as a blogger! I was invited by the good people at Inglot to come down to The Palms for INGLOTLive- which was an opportunity to come try out some products, learn more about the brand in general and have a chat about beauty with some customers. Did anyone know Inglot is a Polish (as in from Poland) brand- and their AMC foundation is specifically formulated for the African market? Interesting no? I only really knew Inglot for their black Gel Liner, which is EASILY the most famous and coveted gel liner on the planet. It is pretty much always sold out in stores. I was very happy for the opportunity to get to know more about the brand and its products. I’m  curious about the AMC foundation. It’s a great texture and it is FULL COVERAGE (my spec!).







(How dreamy does that foundation look?)

My next appointment was at the MAC store at 2pm! I was super stoked to be asked to come help sell lipstick from their Viva Glam range- proceeds from the sale of each lipstick goes towards AIDS funding and research. Anyways, I tottered over to the store to do my thing. And here’s how that went.




(Quick Lipstick change to Viva Glam lipstick)



(Top Row are all Viva Glam lipsticks, the one I’m holding is the one I used- its called Viva Glam Rihanna BB3).

Sidebar- Not beauty news, but the highlight of my entire day- at 4pm I had to attend a Pre Baptism class because your girl is about to be a godmother for the first time to the most adorable little girl! ME! I’M SO EXCITED! Already envisioning tea parties and mani pedis with her and my daughter. Please I’m accepting Congratulatory gifts in form of cash, newspaper announcements, and bags of rice. Oh and donuts. Thanks so much. Anyways, lets get back on track.

After the class, my last stop was at Centro Mall (Lekki) for the House of Lunettes launch. The brand ambassador is my gorgeous girl Lilian Esoro Franklin! It’s a very cute store with EVERY eyewear designer you can think of- from Jimmy Choo to Ray Bans to Bvlgari.

I really liked the ones I was wearing in the group photos, but I eventually settled on these.



(Love love love these!)

And thats it! I’m sorry I haven’t been updating as frequently. I’m currently the only person working at The Nicole Code HQ, so I have a lot on. But I have a couple more exciting posts coming this week so fret not! (Including one for a major website that I am so excited to announce tomorrow!). Stay tuned.

Have you tried any products from Inglot? Do you have any of the Viva Glam lipsticks? Have you been to House of Lunettes?

Let Me Know,
