Maybelline x Gigi Hadid Lipstick in Khair Review

Maybelline x Gigi Hadid Lipstick in Khair Review

Long time, no lipstick review. Even though there's heaps of lipstick blog posts waiting for some daylight in my drafts folder, I'm totally going to ignore them and proceed with this fairly new release- Maybelline x Gigi Hadid Collaboration in the shade 'Khair'. There was so much interest in it when I posted about it on my Instagram Stories.
I got gifted this one by my dearest Shayoni (from Sweet & Bitter Blog), who definitely went out of her way (literally!) to come see me off at Delhi Airport when I left India in January this year. She chose such beautiful keepsakes for me but it is her smile (which for some reason I can't get out of my head) and her genuine love and kindness that I'll remember for life. Meeting and getting to call such an amazing humans my friends & my tribe is the highlight of my blogging journey.

Maybelline launched this collection collab with the supermodel and ever so stunning Gigi Hadid, sometime late last year. The products have been flying off the shelves ever since. I do not own any other product from this collection except this lipstick so I can't comment on their quality & finish. The collection features three categories of products that represent Gigi's roots and lifestyle- East Coast Glam, West Coast Glow and  the Jetsetter Travel Makeup Palette.

Antipodes Halo Skin-Brightening Facial Mud Mask Review

Antipodes Halo Skin-Brightening Facial Mud Mask Review

I'd be real honest, as much as I pretend to know about skincare, I keep my skincare fuss free. There are no daily masks or DIY's involved, there are no super expensive high end creams, there are no unnecessary extraaaa steps in my night time routine. Cleanse, tone, serum, moisturize is my mantra and it works for me. I truly believe beauty is skin deep. What we eat and how we conduct our life in general has a lot of effect on our skin. A happy face makes all flaws disappear..isn't it?

Antipodes Brightening Facial Mud Mask Review

So when I receive a mask that claims brightening and demands to be used twice a week, it feels like a chore. I oblige like all bloggers do. You've gotta test a product as per manufacturer's recommendations. Well I use it the same day it arrives as I have a pesky pimple on my chin. It looks rather cute but I don't like its pus-filled look and it hurts too..ouch!

Half an hour with this mask on (probably more time that the brand recommends!) and some scrubbing to take it off , I notice my pimple is gone. Like wow! Is masking really magic? I try it again  few days later on some milia like whiteheads on my forehead. Works a charm! I'm convinced, this guy is definitely onto something here.
