Ever wonder what kind of lipstick colours Gigi Hadid likes? Well, just take a look at her new collection with Maybelline to find out.
This past Friday I previewed some items from her collab with drugstore brand Maybelline (of which she is a spokesperson), but I wanted to do the lipsticks separately. There are six colours in this collection and they are part of the ColorSensational Matte lipstick formula. I’ve always been a huge fan of Maybelline’s lipsticks since they are so comfortable to wear and the formulation is top notch. There are six colours in this collection, all being housed in packaging similar to the rest of the collection, matte millennial pink with her name on it in holographic writing.
I received four colours, McCall, Erin, Khair, and Lani. There is also Taura and Austyn, and all the shades have matching lip liners, which I didn’t receive so I can’t comment on those. I have tried Maybelline’s ColorSensational liners before though and did like how they applied.
So what’s with the names? I thought the same thing. McCall is a beautiful nude named after one of Hadid’s best friends; Erin is a deep mauve with purple undertones named after Maybelline global makeup artist, Erin Parsons; Khair is a classic, universal red with orange undertones, named after Bella Hadid’s middle name (Gigi’s sister); and Lani is a deep red with blue undertones named after another one of Gigi’s best friends. As for the other shades, Taura is Hadid’s signature nude shade, named after her astrology sign, Taurus; and Austyn is a warm shade, named after another one of her friends (she has a lot of friends apparently).
At first glance, McCall was clearly going to be my favourite, and it totally is, however, after swatching the other three, I’m totally digging all the shades, yes, even the reds. Erin, the taupe is lighter on compared to how it looks in the tube, and the two red shades are just stunning and so holiday and vacation appropriate.
These lipsticks will be released with the rest of the collection on December 5 (however they are available for preorder through Amazon.ca and Walmart.ca as of right now). They will retails for an SRP of C$11.99 each.
