We’ve been waiting with bated breath to get our hands on supermodel, Gigi Hadid, and mega international makeup brand, Maybelline, collaboration in Pakistan. Well ladies, thanks to just4girls.pk/blog, the hottest collection is available online just in time for the summer! We’re so happy with what they’ve come up with, and the results do not disappoint. According to Gigi herself, “I have always believed that great makeup doesn’t have to cost a fortune. I was empowered to create something that I couldn’t find before, while also making sure it was a full set at an affordable price.” Thank you Gigi.
The first bit of the collection to come to light is the Jetsetter Palette includes two concealers, two lip balms, four eyeshadows, one blush, bronzer, highlighter, and mascara in rosy hues that capture the model’s signature California glow. The rest of the line is organized in two beauty looks that Gigi has come to embody as a bicoastal “It Girl”: East Coast glam and West Coast glam. East Coast glam (three lipsticks with matching lip liners, a tinted primer, liquid strobe, liquid eyeliner, mascara, two eye contour palettes, and an eye contour brush) is the ultimate representation of New York and cosmopolitan glam. It is inspired by SoHo, which is Gigi’s favorite neighborhood. The palette is designed to help a city woman go from sharp to sexy. West Coast Glow, on the other hand, (three lipsticks with matching lip liners, a tinted primer, liquid strobe, gel eyeliner, two eyeshadows palettes, mascara, and eyeshadow brush) will also take a gal effortlessly from day to night, but has a more “laid-back, beachy feel. It is inspired by California, because that is where Gigi is from. Since there is so much to choose from, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing cause hella options, I’m here to help you ladies out in choosing which products are 100% worth purchasing and adding to your own lil collection. From lipsticks, to mascara and liquid highlighter, below are the best products from the Gigi Hadid x Maybelline Collection:
- The Gold Liquid Strobe is just GORGEOUS. Good thing it’s already summer, because you will need a bit of a tan before applying. During the summer months, we are all about bronzing the heck out of our faces and highlighting with golden hues, which is why this product is easily one of the favorites in the collection. It can also be used as an eyeshadow base that looks equally as gorg. The highlighter is easy to blend, packs a real punch in terms of pigment, and is all around a fabulous little product that is definitely worth getting from the collection if you are into the golden, dewy summer look.
- The Matte Lipsticks are to die for, ladies. Despite being marketed as matte, the six lip colors that Gigi included in her collab are surprisingly non-drying with an amazing color payoff. They are super creamy, long-lasting, easy to apply, and the packaging in divine. The top model’s personal favorite is a classic browny nude shade named Taura–because of her star sign, Taurus. There is also an amazing classic, true red shade called Khair, which is named after little sister Bella’s middle name. Another great shade for the summer is an iconic orangey-red shade called Austyn. It is one of those go-to shades for summer events and jazzy nights when all you need is a pop of color.
- The Fiber Mascara will have you looking all bright eyed and bushy tailed, regardless of how much sleep you get on all the sleepless summer nights to come. It is a double-sided product that is pretty fun to use. First, you apply a coat of mascara as usual, then you brush on the tiny white fibers encased in the opposite end of the tube, which build your natural lashes before you seal them in with another coat of mascara. Be sure not to brush the fibers onto your bare lashes; they’ll just fall into your eyes, which hurts. Overall, it’s just a very good, non-clumpy mascara.
With 18 products in total (including brushes, primers, and colors to fit all your glam girl needs), there is literally something for everyone in Gigi Hadid’s inaugural beauty collection. Best of all, nothing costs more than PKR 1,700, so you can get your supermodel game on without breaking the bank. All of the products mentioned above are available on just4girls.pk/blog, so up the ante ladies and get them while they are still available–because they are summer in Pakistan hot. I also just want to end this by saying that GiGi’s collab is 100, but so is her political woke game. Home girl is pro-Palestine, advocating for Palestinian rights, and raising awareness via Twitter. Check it out, cop some makeup, and get behind the cause! #FreePalestine
