IMG_8786-1

Hello Guys,

This is coming later than expected. I am sure a couple of you guys have noticed we are back on WordPress.com that’s because Iamdodos.com is currently being updated but all content will be on Iamdodos.wordpress.com

I have been battling going ahead with WordPress.com but in a few weeks Iamdodos.com will be back up.

I miss blogging and I still have giveaways coming to celebrate #IAmDodosIsOne.

Don’t give up on us just yet we’ll be back and better!

Love Always,

Dodos.

IAMDODOS IS ONE!

Tunde K. Mason for iamdodos.com

Hello Guys!

“Only a small percentage of blogs survive their first year”

Today I am proud to say that I’M ONE OF THEM!

Exactly 326 days ago, on the 8th of September 2014, I hit the “Publish” button for the first time! Of course without knowing what I was getting into at the time. My only desire then was to post photos of my outfits, create makeup looks and share some of my favorite makeup products.

Fortunately for me, many other fantastic people decided to join me on this beautiful crazy adventure, and helped me a great deal in shaping what IAMDODOS has become today! I am more than grateful for that and most especially you guys, my amazing readers giving me those amazing hits (sometimes lol).

I know you guys are probably wondering if I have any exciting plans and announcements. I have some really good stuff coming your way in the next week or two and I cannot wait to share. IAMDODOS wouldn’t be here without you and I’d like to say thank you to you guys in a big way. Watch this space, more great stuff coming. 

                                        Here’s to many more years of blogging and building a great community where we can share beauty and fashion tips.

Happy One Year Anniversary to US!

LANCOME – Product Review

IMG_7191FullSizeRender-8IMG_3394

The Advanced Genifique Youth Concentrate
IMG_3408-1

 Hello Guys,

This is my first time trying out the Lancome Genifique  advanced youth activating serum and so impressed.I’ve been using this serum for 5 days! and I have literally dumped  my other serum..

Lancome  says its the fastest way to more radiant skin in about 7 days and honestly I agree. I have seen changes more in the texture of my skin than anything else.

Steps!
I use this in the mornings and at night on a perfectly cleansed skin, apply two/three drops of Advanced Génifique Serum evenly across your face and neck and gently massage the formula has been incorporated in skincare routine.

IMG_7196

My Take!

 – Serum absorbs quickly without looking oily or greasy after application.

-My skin feels soft, smooth and clear.

– My skin stays hydrated all through the day.

-My foundation applies evenly and easier.

I know this would be beneficial to much older women because it Improves the appearance of radiance, clarity, firmness, evenness in skin tone and texture. Oh and my mum has joined in using lol. However  it’s a little on the pricey side but definitely a good investment! I highly Recommend!

Lancome Shine lover!

IMG_3396

Shine Lover is much more than a lipstick, it’s a state of mind”- Lancome  says. Includes Rose de Muscat Oil which infuses the balmy texture with moisture that hydrates, rejuvenates, and smooths lips.It definitely has that semi glossy finish as the formula melts on lips which makes it easy for application. For those of us who aren’t crazy for matte lipsticks I recommend this product.

Lancome L’Absolu Rouge

IMG_3402

L’Absolu Rouge lipstick unlike the Shine lover has more intense color glides on evenly but looks satin.This lipstick is highly pigmented which give rich, intense, long lasting color. I will surely try this on my next client.

Grandoise Mascara

IMG_3403-1The Grandoise wide-angle fan effect mascara comes in amazing colours.This is pretty weird as I am sucker for mascara wands they determine how coated your lashes are. The Patented swan-neck wand allows you to reach every lash from corner to corner, even the smallest lashes do not feel left out. I know this because I tried the wand on a different mascara and I was amazed at the result. Unfortunately I was not bold enough to try out this mascara in Purple however, I hope to create a fun look with it.

Teint Idole Ultra 24H

IMG_3407

The Teint Idole Ultra (24H) foundation got me pretty much excited when I discovered it has a unique liquid light essence. A new generation of bioptic pigments combined with classic mineral pigments.  Together, they reproduce the appearance of inner light of perfect skin, by recreating the intensity and pristine freshness of its radiance- Perfect ! I’m thinking this will be perfect for strobing, next youtube video maybe? Oh yeah the fragrance of this foundation is amazing I’ve never used scented foundations before ( quite excited) and it has SPF 15 perfect for Nigerian sun.

For anyone in lagos you can get Lancome products from Essenza store at The Palms Shopping Mall Lekki. I will be creating some interesting looks with a these products and I cannot wait to share.

Happy New Month Lovelies!

M A I S O N

Tunde K. Mason for iamdodos.com

Hello Guys, I have been MIA for a whole month, I have missed blogging and thank you all for your comments . I had to take out time to focus on structuring my business which most of you know is D’Artiste by Dodos. I sincerely apologise for being a terrible blogger but I am back now and promise to be as consistent as I can be. I am ready to compensate you  all heavily by *winks* bringing you some good stuff which I have cooking.

As you guys might already know, I live in Lagos. And Lagos is a beautiful fast-paced city. So fast paced that sometimes we get caught up in the hustle & bustle & miss some gems. One of such gems is Maison Fahrenheit Hospitality. I spent my day at Maison Fahrenheit Hospitality, a boutique hotel in the heart of Victoria Island with a breathtaking rooftop lounge overlooking the Atlantic.
