Both brands are 2 of the biggest brands in the world. Every lady worth her salt know Mac Cosmetics Brand as a top make-up brand and also Clinique as a world class beauty brand under the Estee Lauder brand. As you read this, the ground is being prepared to launch the 2 brands in Lagos & Abuja, Nigeria in a big way.
The first brand for launch we hear is MAC cosmetics brand and according to our findings it would be launched at the Radisson Blu come Thursday, February 7, 2013. For several weeks now, many of those to work for the company have been recruited and have undergone rigorous training, to get them acquainted with the products and latest techniques used in handling them.
From our little findings, we hear the franchise might have been gotten from MAC Cosmetics SA. We have also heard that Paul Okoye is involved in the upcoming launch as the PR person. When the company launches and opens the store at the Ikeja Mall, Alausa, Ikeja, we hear that following in the footsteps of all the MAC Cosmetics stores all over the world, a certain percent of proceeds from sales of products would be donated periodically to an NGO involved in the treatment of HIV.
In the case of Clinique, we hear the launch is still a few weeks away, as the franchise owners are still on the lookout for the store(s) that fits the brand's image. We also hear that the brand is going to be launched in Abuja, the FCT. Franchise according to our findings was gotten from Clinique USA.
Both brands are coming in courtesy of Essenza, the top lifestyle brand that stocks Fragrances & Skin-care products and has several stores in Lagos and other parts of the country.
