In addition, to evaluate the relationship between brand image, perceived use value, brand price and brand loyalty of cosmetic products in Nigeria. The author of this body of work adopted a descriptive survey research design (quantitative approach), where questionnaires were utilized to facilitate data collection. Data was obtained from the students of University of Lagos, Nigeria.
