Taos cosmetics is a fun, fresh & sassy beauty brand from Nigeria that is continuously evolving and improving for the benefit of cosmetics lovers from around the globe! We tested out their #TaosGlow highlight palette and were surprised at how effective it was!
If anyone was ever a fly on the walls here at Glam Africa HQ, you would be exposed to the amount of playing dress-up with the products that get sent to us, we would be ashamed to admit!
We pulled out the Taos Cosmetics cosmetics and fell in love with their #TaosGlow highlight colors because no matter the skin tone, the hues highlighted the skin so naturally making every contour pop! Knowing that none of their products are tested on animals was also an added plus.
The brand was started by Vanessa Onwughalu, who’s passion was born when she was 9 years old out of the love for her mum’s red YSL lipstick. The staying power was very strong and as a young child she took note of this. At this same age was when she decided the name of her beauty brand TAOS , which is her mother’s initials. She started research in 2011 and samples and testings started in 2013. In the summer of 2014 the brand was born in the UK but didn’t launch till November 1st 2014 in Nigeria.
The palette consists of 3 colors: Queen Bee, 1992 and Hollywood.
The beauty of this brand is the shimmer in the palette is also great for a natural eyeshadow and blush look. We used Queen Bee for the eyeshadow and finished off with Hollywood dusted subtly on the cheeks.
The 1992 gives a very subtle shimmer for that perfect day-time look and appropriate for any boardroom meeting
Let us know you if you are just as excited about the palette as we are.
