Zaron Makeup & Hair market storm

All my twitter followers know that after my visit to Blush on saturday i was headed for an interview with Oke Maduewesi (remember her? owner of Zaron Makeup & Hair). Well, it seems that the interview was not to hold as a market storm had already been pre-arranged. Trust me, i got to Lagos Island where they were and literally jumped into the fray along with them.

Here are pics
The Zaron crew
Me posing in the market with my undersized tee (i had to squeeze into it.) New year resolution 1 - lose weight.
A song and a dance in Flora Truworths. They looked at us strange.

Kelechi 'Bedazzled' Igbojekwe and I. She is a member of Nigerian MUAs, yippee!
Ok, i just had to add this picture. Of course you know i couldnt have left without a couple of them pretty clear makeup bags. i bought two of them along with a cute little tweezer to supplement the lovely Lola maja ones i have and they are now resting in my makeup bag (yes, bag) until i have work for them to do.
A big Zaron distributor who insisted we give her samples (they filled a dish she brought out, lol). Henceforth, every person in the market requested for a sample too. Miracle that we werent beaten up and the samples all collected.
standing in the sun (ain't funny my dears. of that i can assure you)
In the mix
Posing in the sun
a happy sale and one sample given out.
and another sample
and another sample
and yet another sample
the crew and the bought over customer
"Abeg leave me alone joo. Who told you im interested in what you are selling"
No one can accuse us of not trying can they? we didnt discriminate at all.

She had to scrutinise the flyer. Wonder if she could really see through the sun  glasses.
And another sample parted with.
"You want to take a picture of me"
"I already have", I replied
They look alike dont they? No, they arent sisters, just another sample parted with and a bought  over customer
last stop before the home run.
So, amongst the heap of things i learnt was that the market women who sell the beauty products and who paste their face with different colours are actually the biggest customers. They know which product is good and which isnt and they know how to market on the grassroot level.

Im sure you all remember the post on the launch of Zaron in september? Well, im happy to say that Zaron now sells like wildfire. Im getting some more Zaron products before they run out of stock cos right before my eyes the stock was running out fast.

Have you bought your own Zaron product? What is your opinion of it?
