Review: Maybelline x Gigi Hadid West Coast Glow Lip Kits

22 January 2018

Mondays are for power reds, and the Lip Liners and Lipsticks from the Maybelline x Gigi Hadid West Coast Glow range offer high wattage!
Sunkissed and sultry, this glowing makeup collection is inspired by the warm California vibes of Gigi Hadid’s hometown. Boardwalk or catwalk, either way the West Coast Glow makeup collection is hot. A sunset red lip and a golden glow, this collection is so major.

The West Coast Glow collection features three gorgeous bold shades of red lipsticks that’s easy to glide on the lips with a creamy-matte finish.

Like what I did with my review of the East Coast Glam Lip Kits, this will focus more on the Lipsticks as I rarely wear Lip Liners anyway.

The shades included in the East Coast range are Austyn, Khair, and Lani.

I am a bit confused about the names to be honest, because the descriptions say Austyn is a "warm orange" while Lani is a "blue-based rouge", but the Lipsticks I have seem like they may have interchanged the two? From the swatches above, Austyn looks like a true red to me while Lani looks orange-y. Notice the discrepancy between the Austyn Lip Liner and Austyn Lipstick (first two swatches from the left). From the descriptions, the Lip Liners are okay, though.

Here are my lip swatches.

Austyn Lip Liner

This is such a perfect va-va-voom, bombshell red. I LOVE THIS! I wear this on times I feel too lazy to put makeup on. Powder, eyebrows, and this and you're good to go. Notice how different the colors look, though --- as I mentioned above, the Lip Liner looks orange while the Lipstick is a true red.

Khair Lipstick
I don't have the Khair Lip Liner so this is just a swatch of the lipstick alone. It is said to be Gigi's favorite and is dedicated to her sister Bella, whose middle name is Khair which translates to "benevolent" in Arabic. Khair is a happy medium between Austyn and Lani, a basic cherry that is flattering to all skin tones.

Lani Lip Liner

Lani looks more orange-y in person, especially when applied alone. If I'm going to wear the Lip Liner with the Lipstick, I think I'm just going to swap Austyn and Lani.

I love how my phone camera captured how even the application is for all three Lipsticks. If I were to describe these products in one word, it will be effortless, which has really been Gigi's style ever since. I love how her personality and style translates with the products under this collection.

Of the three colors, Austyn is my favorite. All three applied smoothly with no tugging. The formula is creamy matte and did not leave my lips feeling nor looking dry. They also lasted for more than three hours, with touch-ups needed after meals.

The Lipsticks cost PhP349 each while the Lip Liners cost PhP249 each, but I believe they have a Lip Kit promo where you can get both in a set for a cheaper price.

The other products I used on my face are all from the Maybelline x Gigi Hadid Collection. This is actually a series of reviews I am doing to showcase the products I have from the line.
