I went to the downtown area in Dakar today. It turns out that there is a store that is the Senegalese version of a dollar store. My guide showed me various options, some too daring for my sensibilities( we're talking blue lipgloss).A lot of the items had to be bought in bulk in order to get a good deal. I had no problem with that since it's usually so hard to get makeup that works for my skin tone, especially at a discount. I admit that I'm having a bit of buyer's remorse over some things, but everything is pretty much useable. I can't wait to start playing with my face!
For reference, all of this cost the equivalent of thirty five USD. Not too bad, I guess.I plan to use everything in Senegal and beyond.
