Old school Magic

dsc07020

I was at an open market in northern Nigeria recently and guess what I found…?? I bet you can  already guess from the photos. I saw the good old magic lipstick our mothers used in the 80’s and 90’s sitting pretty on the shelve in one of the cosmetic stores i visited. I was so excited to see this, i purchased it immediately. I had no idea it was still  available on the market.

I decided to search for more “old school” makeup items but sadly, i found only the classic black eyeliner pencil which was also used as lip liner back in the day(talk about old school trends, lol).

The magic lipstick stays true to its name. Though green in colour  it immediately changes to red upon application. I was so fascinated about this as a child.

The black eyeliner remains classic black however the application is not smooth and  pigment  not intense but I guess for the price you can’t complain.

I wish i found other “old school” makeup items like the sweet sixteen Brown powder in the cute can , wet lips, chapet lip balm, Tony Montana powder,River island lipsticks etc. so i could   photograph and blog about them but sadly I couldn’t find any of them.

If you by any chance know where I can find any of these items, kindly comment below or send me an email.
