I love my lip gloss, like Nyachomba loves her mascara. If there's one thing I cannot leave the house without its a tube of lip gloss... and a spare.
My go-to lip glosses of choice that I find affordable and simply fantastic are Maybelline, Revlon and Cover Girl - in that order. I usually stock up when I get to travel, or send a friend to bring me a pile whenever possible. HOWEVER! I recently found a pharmacy that stores both Maybelline and Revlon lip glosses at UNDER 1000 shillings. Woop woop!
Up top is my old tube that I replaced with the Revlon ColourBurst - Bordeaux
Found at Medlab (name?) Pharmacy at Valley Arcade: for Kshs. 850/- Go there... Now.
My new Bordeaux is the heavily pigmented swab to your left. This stuff is like super pigmented! LOVE ❤
The swab to the right is my old Super Lustrous - Mauve.
Now my hair, that's another story. As you may have found out by now I don't bother with styling, so this is just a two minute up-do that I do to my old twist outs.
I grab a scarf and tie up the back, leaving the front hanging out. Super simple.
You can also find L'oreal, Maybelline, and Victoria Secrets (I detest VS lip glosses with a passion, urghh...) at the Valley Arcade pharmacy. I made off with my Revlon and two Maybellines (730/- a pop) and I will be back for more, to support my habit. I have seen these brands at other areas in Nairobi, but this is the cheapest drug store thus far. I know The Junction has a few outlets that sell Revlon, but they were at about 1500/- ain't nobody got time for that...
My shameful stash as found in various hand bags and clutches... I have a serious problem.
Do you guys know any other hidden areas where I can find cheap glosses here in Nairobi?! If so let me know.
Thanks for stopping by!
