“Maybelline Gigi Hadid Collection” is an exclusive limited-edition collection created and designed by none other than Maybelline ambassador Supermodel Gigi Hadid herself. This complete range features her favorite shades of lipsticks, eyeliners, brow liner, mascaras, primers, strobing cream, and eye shadow palette. This is the one go-to collection for every millennial. Although this collection was launched in the United States a while back, Maybelline brought them to India just recently. That too just only few items from the entire collection! As usual I was drawn immediately toward lipsticks, and I picked up the shade “Erin.”

My Experience with Maybelline Gigi Hadid Matte Lipstick Erin
Packaging: This lipstick comes in a matte powder pink tube with Gigi Hadid written on both the sides of the tube in holographic print. The packaging looks too classy. The white and silver detailing on the pink packaging gives this lipstick a luxurious feel. The cap shuts off with a click, making it travel friendly. Unlike other Maybelline lipsticks, this lipstick comes with a silver outer packaging with holographic prints. All information, including the ingredients list, is printed on the outer packaging. However, only the shade name and the manufacturing date are printed in a color-coded sticker at the bottom of the tube. This opaque packaging will be an issue if you have more than one shade in your stash.
Shade: Gigi Hadid lipsticks come in two varieties: “East Coast Glam Collection” and “West Coast Collection.” The former consists of three natural signature nudes, whereas the latter consists of three bold statement-making reds. There is definitely one shade for every skin tone. “Erin” is a beautiful purple brown with grey undertones. It could be a cool-toned nude on darker skin tones. Although the darkest shade among the three nudes, it is not a stark but a pleasant purple. It is a really great color for day and night. However, this shade may look different on different skin tones.
Here are swatches of all shades available in Maybelline Gigi Hadid collection:
Taura is a peachy brown shade that will suit fair skin tone and will barely suit medium skin tone.
Mccall is a pale nude shade that will suit only fair skin tone.
Austyn is a classic red that will suit all skin tones.
Lani is a little deeper red than Austyn and will suit all skin tones.
Khair is a red with orange undertones and will suit all skin tones.
Erin is a purple brown with grey undertones and will suit all skin tones.
Texture: The texture of this lipstick is soft, creamy, and lightweight. It goes on really smooth and has a satin finish. It feels so soft on the lips. The color is moderately pigmented, and few coats are needed to cover up the lips. However, it does not feel heavy or patchy upon layering.
Performance: This lipstick is the creamiest matte one I have ever tried. It glided on super smoothly and did not dry the lips out. As the color payoff is quite moderate, layering is a must. However, building up the color is very easy as it does not get sticky, tacky, or flaky. It does not accentuate any dry patches or fine lines. Rather it remains smooth and weightless. It has a creamy and lightly hydrating consistency, which gives non-drying and comfortable feel. “Erin” is a unique purple brown shade with grey undertones. I do not have any such color in my collection. I also love how subtle this particular shade is, and how natural it looked on the lips. It was the perfect barely there nude shade and really worked with my complexion. It is not waterproof nor transfer proof. It stays put really well for 4–5 hours before fading from the inside of the lips. Although it transfers to cups and spoons, it can survive light snacking. It does not leave behind any stain on the lips and is easy to remove. Overall, it is a unique shade with a softer and lighter formula.
