What the brand says
Gigi Hadid loves to share the tips and success gathered from her modelling career in her new collaboration with Maybelline. The Gigi Hadid Lani lip kit is a exclusive limited edition design that has intense highly pigmented colour enriched with sensuous, precious oils.
The Gigi exclusive lipstick has been designed with a creamy no smudge formula that reduces the chances of bleeding. As I find a lot of lipsticks often end up with slightly uneven edges I was keen to see if this worked.
For my review I’m testing Lani, a vivid red lipstick and lip liner. The lipstick and lip liner are slightly different tones of red but this is only noticeable if you look closely.
First I lined my lips with liner and then filled in my lips so my lipstick doesn’t slip off. The liner is quite creamy so it was easy to get a full vivid line around my lips. When I coloured in my lips with the liner it did feel a little drying however. The lipstick itself has a really creamy moisturising formula that soon eradicates the dryness of the liner. It has a really strong matte finish. My lips are really thin, especially my top lip, so I was delighted with how full my lips looked when wearing the lipstick.
I was really impressed with the longevity of the lipstick. Surprisingly it seemed to give me full coverage for around 4-5 hours. After eating and drinking the lipstick faded a lot quicker and left a patchy finish. After the lipstick started to shift it did seem to smudge slightly. This somewhat goes against one of the major selling points of the lip kit.
I give it 4/5
- Gives full coverage for a lot longer than other lipsticks I’ve tried
- The lipstick is creamy and comfortable to wear
- Bright intense colour
- My lips look a lot fuller
- The liner is slightly drying
