EVENT: Maybelline’s 100th birthday party with Gigi Hadid!

Wow, Maybelline sure knows how to throw a birthday party! I was lucky enough to attend the #Maybelline100 event tonight, and I can honestly say it’s one of the best blogger/media events I’ve been to. Killer guest list, great food, a stunning skyline view, amazing products, and a bonus Jonas… more on that later.

The event took place at The One Eighty, a restaurant on the 51st floor of a building in downtown Toronto. They even provided free Uber rides to people attending!

Seriously, custom bendy straws??? How cool is that? And yes, I did manage to take one home with me.

After sipping on a few drinks on the balcony with some of my fave ladies, we went inside to discover all the new Maybelline goodies coming out over the next few months. Hold onto your hats…

Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette
JUNE: The Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. We’ve seen our friends in the US going on and on about this one, and it’s finally here! Retail $16.99 CAD.

You’ll also see a new mascara called the Colossal Chaotic Lash with an innovative new brush on June 9th.

Maybelline Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil
For July, Maybelline is releasing Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in 5 shades (black, brown, cobalt blue, white and grey). Retail $11.99 CAD.

Are you ready…

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Gloss
BABY LIPS MOISTURIZING GLOSS! Come to Mama. There will be 12 shades in 3 different finishes (shimmer, cream and jelly). Retail $5.99 CAD. But sadly, you’ll have to wait until July to get your hands on these.

Another release in July –  the Define and Fill Duo Brow Liner a double-ended pencil with a powder tip on one side and a wax on the other.

Maybelline Color Blur Matte Lip Pencil
Another stunner, Color Blur Matte Lip Pencil comes in 10 vivid shades and is meant to be worn either bold straight from the pencil or blurred using the special smudger on the end. Available in August, retail $11.99 CAD.

Better Skin
The SuperStay Better Skin Foundation (12 shades, retail $14.99 CAD) and Concealer (6 shades, retail $10.99 CAD) hits store shelves in September. This is a longwearing foundation that actually improves your skin over time.

After swooning over all this product, I saw something out of the corner of my eye. My boyband spidey senses were tingling…

Maybelline Joe Jonas
OH HEY, JOE JONAS! People mostly left him alone, although when we asked for photos later on (and blew his cover) he was extremely nice!

Also spotted, the Beckerman sisters!

What’s a birthday party without cake? When it was finally time to blow out the candles, we all grabbed a glass of champagne for a toast from Maybelline’s new IT GIRL, Gigi Hadid.

Stunning, am I right?

She gave a toast, which I couldn’t really hear most of, but she seems very genuine and at ease.

And more because she’s so fun.


Blowing out the candles. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAYBELLINE!

And then, there was cake.
