The Gigi x Maybelline collection – Is it worth it?

gigi maybelline lipsticks

I have been waiting for this collection to Launch in the U.K. For ages now because I had my eye on these nude lipsticks from the new maybelline x Gigi Hadid collection! And boy they don’t disappoint!!

The collection is separated into two, you have the west coast glow and east coast glam collection with the west being more “Sunkissed and sultry, this glowing collection is inspired by the warm Cali vibes of Gigi’s hometown “  which includes bold red lipsticks, lip liners and highlighters and the east being “Fresh, bold, fierce. It is all about the cat eye in this city chic look look inspired by Gigi’s home away from home, New York City” with more wearable nude shade lipstick and lip liners, eye shadow palettes and liquid liner.

We all know that nudes are my Favourite  shades so I had to pick up a couple from this collection to try out.

 Maybelline is my favourite drugstore lipstick formula though so I knew I would  love these.  They’re matte lipsticks but so creamy and comfortable on the lips and the shades I got were McCall and Taura and they are the most gorgeous nudes ever and look so flattering on!!

There is three nudes in this collection although I only got the two lighter shades which are more neutral and beige toned. The shade Erin is more of a darker brown, so these will be lovely for all skin tones, like I said the formula of these is just the same as  Maybelline’s other matte lipsticks, which are so creamy and pigmented. It doesn’t even feel like a matte on. So if you’re not a lover of dry matte lipsticks then you will love these. The lip liners are also super pigmented and creamy and are great for outlining your lips.

 

The packaging is nude, which I also love, with Gigi’s signature in silver holographic text which looks really cool, I would have loved nude and gold but it is still really nice and looks gorgeous on my Vanity.

 

A lot of people have had mixed feelings on this collection, due to the fact the prices are a little bit more than Maybelline’s regular products, I can’t comment on the other products in this collection as I haven’t tried them, but like any collection especially with new packaging and a collaboration with a celebrity you can’t expect the price not to increase a little bit. The normal matte lipsticks are £6.99 and these are £8.99, so I don’t think £2 more is that bad also the lip liners are £2 more as well.

Mccall is the lighter one out the two I have, Its a gorgeous classic neutral nude shade that looks so pretty on. Its that perfect my lips but better shade.

Taura is a more dark beige shade and again looks so nice on the lips, both these shade are quite cool toned.

    There’s something about this collection that doesn’t sit right with me after watching Tati’s YouTube video, however, if they are available on a cheeky 3 for 2 offer I could be tempted by the shades you’ve gone for!

    I really like the packaging and my friend’s kids call me Gigi so I’m very tempted! The palettes seem a bit pricey but I think I’ll go for a couple of the lipsticks 🙂
