Mac is finally here!!! I first heard that they were coming to Nigeria in December and you guys couldn't begin to imagine how excited I was. They opened their first store at Ikeja city mall last month and I'm still patiently waiting for them to open the one at the palms.
I went to the store in Ikeja with the intention of repurchasing my studio finish concealer in NW45 and getting a few lipsticks.
The store looked like most mac stores I've been to. The layout out made everything easy to find and accessible. I know this is a computer generated image but I think the store looks exactly like this. I didn't bother going there with my camera because I know that Ikeja city mall has something against taking pictures inside a store. I wish I had pictures to show you guys though.
They had most of the things I asked for but some lipsticks were out of stock including ruby woo.
I bought the studio finish concealer in NW45 and two lipsticks in Up the Amp and Cyber. The lipsticks which sell for $15 dollars in the US and £14 in the UK sold for N3,800 each and the concealer which sells for $18 in the US and £14.50 in the UK sold for N4000. Americans are so lucky!
Up the Amp - Gorgeous lavender colour with an amplified creme finish. The colour pay off is amazing. I'm sure that I'm going to wear the heck outta this lipstick.
Cyber- beautiful eggplant/intense dark purple colour with a satin finish. This lipstick is not for the faint hearted. I know that I considered getting this several times but always changed my mind the second I was about to pay. Its extremely creamy and perfect for those who like it vampy.
Has anyone gone to the Mac store?
