The Nigerian beauty brand that stole our hearts; Hegai & Esther!

In my early days as a makeup artiste, i remember watching several videos and viewing pictures from popular makeup artistes such as Beauty and the Beholder, Tints Makeup Pro, Kristabel Makeup, Makeup Tales, Topal touch and several other industry favourites, who use this brow filler and it comes out looking flawless.  I got curious about the brand, ordered mine and to my utmost surprise found out it was a Nigerian brand, how i was filled with pride 🙂 knowing that half the makeup artises in Nigeria actually a Nigerian brand?! Wow! Who would have thought this brand would grow to be this big? But again, when you put out a good product with an even better price point, people will support you. Today is all about celebrating Hegai & Esther and their new not-so-new range of products.

H&E Brow Gel


The Brow Gel

What more can i say about the H&E brow gel? it definitely isn’t their newest product but its definitely one of their best! This product is platinum, a best seller, easy to use, smudge free, comes in three different shades from really dark to light brown, water resistant, lasts all day and most importantly, very affordable based on Nigerian standards. The shades are Nubia, Toffee and Ebony, it can achieve both bold and natural looking brows. In my opinion, we should be exporting this product to the world. Its way too good to not share, it retails for N2,500. Layefa beauty teaches us how to “werk” the H&E brow gel in this video
