M.A.C Cosmetics, the revolutionary cosmetics brand in beauty innovation, joined forces with BellaNaija Style, Africa’s premier digital platform for fashion, beauty, and lifestyle, to host the BNS Women’s Month wrap-up event #HighTeaWithBNS.

Held on Sunday, April 28th, 2024, at The Mercedes-Benz Center in Victoria Island, Lagos, the exclusive gathering celebrated phenomenal women shaping the African landscape.

The luxurious soiree celebrated the remarkable women who drive and shape the African beauty, fashion, entertainment and lifestyle industries. It provided the perfect platform for women to connect, honour each other’s achievements, and be empowered. 

Hosted by the talented Motunde Ibironke, Head of Partnerships & Projects at BellaNaija the brunch showcased an immersive experience featuring M.A.C’s latest innovation, the M.A.C.Ximal Silky Matte Lipstick.

Pushing things to the max has always been part of the M.A.C DNA, so they didn’t hold back when it came to reformulating and refreshing their iconic Matte Lipstick to give lips MORE with a new silky matte finish and good-for-lips formula that looks richer, feels better and lasts longer.

MORE COLOUR – with a full-coverage, pigment-rich payoff in our widest range of [40] famous and all-new shades.

MORE COMFORT – with a creamy blend of coconut oil, organic shea butter and organic cocoa butter that conditions and nourishes lips.

MORE CARE – with instant and eight-hour moisture.

MORE LONGWEAR – with 12 hours of non-fading, long-lasting colour that leaves lips looking visibly fuller from the very first ultra-vibrant glide.

MORE LUXE LOOK – with a high-shine packaging design on the outside and M·A·C-embossed bullet on the inside.

MORE RESPONSIBLE – with a lipstick case that features at least 30% PCR material.

The iconic Matte Lipstick that changed the world may have been reimagined, but each famous and fresh hue still serves up that signature vanilla scent you already love (or soon will…).

In addition to the beauty experience, M.A.C Cosmetics organised Beauty Games, where guests tested their M.A.C. knowledge to win a gift box.

A captivating #BNSConvos session was hosted with Idia Aisien and Hilda Baci, moderated by BellaNaija’s Chief of Staff/Head of Strategy Mary Edoro. Their discussion on audacity, collaboration, and navigating the digital space with authenticity deeply inspired the audience.

The event was further amplified by a captivating performance from Falana.

High Tea with BellaNaija Style was a remarkable affair that brought together distinguished female powerhouses such as Banke Kuku, Ejiro Amos Tafiri, Chioma Ikokwu, Mimi Onalaja, Latasha Ngwube, Onyeka Ugwu, Toluwani Wabara, Anita Adeoye, and many more luminaries from various industries.

The collaboration between M.A.C Cosmetics and BellaNaija Style perfectly embodied the essence of the event — a fusion of beauty, style, sustainability and the undeniable power of women.

The M.A.C.Ximal Silky Matte Lipstick is available for purchase at Essenza, both online and in-store nationwide.
