I know, I’m super late on the wagon but it’s still never too late. This review is something about all favorites collab. Our favorite super-model Gigi Hadid has collaborated with the cult favorite brand Maybelline, bringing us the #MaybellineXGigiHadid collection. This collection was launched quite a long time before, which is the cutest range ever. Who else specially loved their PR boxes(lucky you bloggers out there who received them)? omg I was so in love with their amazing packaging and literally everything; lipsticks, eyeliner and eyeshadow palettes being my most favorite. I had to get the eyeshadow palettes, coz those were what pulled my attraction the most. And in this post, I’ll be talking about these Gigi Hadid palettes.
Gigi Hadid X Maybelline India. One collection. Multiple looks. An EXCLUSIVE LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION created and designed by the Maybelline Ambassador, Supermodel Gigi Hadid herself.
A complete range, featuring Gigi’s favourite shades of lipsticks, eyeliners, brow liner, mascaras, primers, strobing cream and eye shadow palettes, this is totally a one go-to collection for every millennial. Fun, Playful, Exclusive, Exciting, Trendsetting. Words that describe the Supermodel Gigi Hadid and her Limited Edition Collection.
The first thing that I had in my wishlist from this Gigi Hadid collection are the eyeshadow palettes and then I also happened to get the liquid strobe cream coz I’m all about glow babe!
AVAILABILITY : The Maybelline x Gigi Hadid collection is available at Nykaa, Amazon, Myntra, Flipkart, Shoppers Stop websites online and you can find this collection at your local beauty supply stores and malls.
I picked all of mine from Nykaa during a sale, coz I felt the price point was quite on the steep side for the little palettes, and the strobe cream pricing was ok-ok types.
MAYBELLINE x GIGI HADID EYESHADOW PALETTES
A beautiful six shades palette that is perfect for creating custom eye makeup looks. Has both matte and shimmery shades to easily take you from day to night. Available in 2 variants.
- Cool Palette : Mauves, Pinks, Golds and Rose Golds.
- Warm Palette: Nudes, Browns and Champagne golds.
PRICE : INR 799/- for a 4g palette.
Packaging, these MaybellinexGigiHadid palettes come in pale pastel peach colored, pretty sturdy plastic cases although with no mirror and no brush applicator. But I think they should’ve included a mirror at least for the price point. And thank god, I’m glad that stupid dual ended sponge applicator was not here anymore, I don’t even want it. It has a clear lid so the shades be visible. The front has beautiful Gigi Hadid logo and backside we have all the info about the palette. And oh these palettes have named each shade and have also given a little info-graphic for beginners, of how to use the shades.
I was so intrigued by both palettes that I had hard time deciding which one to pick, which made me get both of them. The shadows are very soft, very finely milled and they are well(mediumly) pigmented. They blend in very smoothly and easily, without going patchy. A little fallout is obvious, which is totally acceptable with any eyeshows. I like the fact that both palettes have a base shade, lid colors, crease shades and a highlighting shade. This is what I look for in any typical eyeshadow palette. I’d definitely say these are one whole palettes to create a full look, thumbs up Maybelline and Gigi Hadid. Both palettes have distinct crease colors, and look at the pigments of them, they create that perfect shadow for the crease. For the shimmer shades, working with fingers is the best to bring out the intensity. Coz dabbing with a brush only gives fallouts and doesn’t apply properly. I wish the shimmers had much more intensity to them. I find myself reaching out to these palettes whenever I’m on vacation for the compactness, I can fit them even in my smallest makeup pouch, and for having the every day wearable shades.

The only thing that made this simple tube also look cute, is probably the peach color theme going on. Packaging, it goes with the color theme of this entire collection and comes in a pretty flat squeezy tube with a screw lid. The details about the product is mentioned on the back of the tube and the shade name is mentioned in the front itself. This does not come with any outer cardboard box type, just the tube with a plastic seal is all it comes in.
There are 2 shades available in the Liquid Strobe : Iridescent & Gold. Being a tanned skinned babe, I thought I’d go with the Gold shade. It is a rich creamy liquid strobe with great pigmentation. It sets to a dry matte finish. And yes, true to its name this is a pure gold shade with kind of multicolored micro-shimmers. I found this strobe cream having a ton of shimmers in it which show up obvious on the skin. That’s the reason I like to use it under my foundation or mix with my foundation for that glow. Personally I would not prefer using it on top of my makeup/foundation. This shade would suit medium to dark skin toned girls, and yes it depends on how you wanna use it.
Overall, this chic Maybelline X Gigi Hadid collection is kind of a hit and miss. For me personally, I love the eyeshadow palettes and the liquid strobe which I’m glad I picked. I think I was not at all interested in the lipstick collection, and I felt I have eyes on no shade and being very normal formula lipsticks. If you’re looking forward to get anything from this collab, I’d suggest you get the eyeshadow palettes (Warm or Cool, depending on your preference) and the strobe cream.
