The unwritten rule of human nature dictates that, as long as you slap a designer name on any product, then it will sell. That is how much people love designer products. But that does not necessarily make the product good. There are counterfeits all over that sell just because a designer name was slipped into the packaging. For this reason, most designer makeup brands in Kenya work hard to make their products worthy of their name.
