Gigi Hadid coming to Australia

Global fitness leader Reebok and Gigi Hadid are bringing the brands largest women’s campaign #BeMoreHuman to Sydney, to empower females across Australia to create positive change for themselves and the world around them.

On the 16th of November, Reebok will host a two-part event at Carriageworks, to celebrate women who are kicking the door down to let change in.

The event will begin with invited guests experiencing an immersive women’s event revealing an Australian-first glimpse at Reebok’s latest collection and campaign messaging.

To close the event, guests will sit down to an intimate brunch and discussion featuring Gigi Hadid and a soon to be announced line up of leading Australian women who will share their perspectives and stories on overcoming the physical, mental and social barriers that stand in their way. Gigi will also be launching her exclusive Reebok collaboration on the day.

As an inspiration to women across the world, Hadid empowers women to be fearless in their pursuit of what they really want in life. “I always try where I can to step out of my comfort zone, I think being more human is realizing no one wakes up feeling like a superhero. You have to find things on a daily basis that inspire you and that make you happy and feel creative, feel like you want to get out in the world and make a difference.” – Gigi Hadid

 

Reebok is not only revisiting its heritage of being a women’s-focused brand, but more importantly, celebrating strong women with powerful voices, who are inspiring others to action – at a time when action is needed!

“Celebrating women is nothing new for Reebok… and we’re still at it today,” said Arnna Johnstone, Reebok Pacific’s Senior Brand Manager. “It’s an amazing time for the Brand as we launch the latest evolution of our ‘Be More Human’ campaign. It is represented by a diverse mix of women who are each making positive changes to the world in their own unique way and in turn, inspiring others to be the best version of themselves, physically, mentally and socially. Creating positive change is fundamental to the Reebok brand.”

Featured in the global campaign are artists and athletes including Gal Gadot, Danai Gurira, Gigi Hadid, Ariana Grande, Nathalie Emmanuel and local Athletes Tia Clair Toomey & Kelly Cartwright, who each tell their own personal story of overcoming barriers to become their best self. They are featured alongside women who have built organizations that are empowering females and making history, including Reese Scott, Founder of Women’s World of Boxing; Shannon Kim Wagner, Founder of the Women’s Strength Coalition; Jenny Gaither, Founder and CEO of Movement Foundation; and Yelda Ali, Founder of Camel Assembly.

Gum you can swallow: introducing Australia’s first locally made & organic plant-based digestible chewing gum

Although its been established that traditional chewing gum doesn’t take 7 years to digest, it is true that it can cause a number of gastric issues when swallowed. Moreover, with many supermarket brands opting for synthetic resins, fillers, preservatives and artificial sweeteners, gum can contain controversial ingredients, such as Butylated Hydroxytoluene, Titanium Dioxide and Aspartame, that can be detrimental to the human body.

Containing 100% natural and organic ingredients, Mast Chew is Australia’s first locally manufactured plant-based and sugar-free chewing gum made from an ancient Mediterranean gum called Pistacia Resin.

Used for thousands of years to maintain gut health and treat abdominal related issues including heartburn, gastric and intestinal ulcers, Pistacia Resin is a mastic-like secretion from the Pistacia genus of trees, and is combined with Xylitol and mint to create a unique yet familiar minty fresh flavour and texture that cleanses the mouth and soothes the stomach.

Containing no synthetics, latex, sugars, colours, additives or artificial sweeteners, Mast Chew is easily digested by the body and has been shown to assist in the treatment of stomach ulcers when swallowed.

Offering antimicrobial benefits, Mast Chew assists in the aid of dental hygiene by preventing tooth decay and eliminating bad breath. Chewing of gum has also been linked to reduced stress, improved memory function and decreased hunger levels by mimicking the rhythmic act of chewing food.

Available in a 16-pce blister pack ($4.50 rrp) and 35-pce bottle ($6.95 rrp), Mast Chew is available nationwide at www.afpishop.com

Rihanna Hosts Fenty Beauty First Anniversary In Sydney

The atmosphere was electric in Sydney as Rihanna celebrated her beauty brand, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, with Australian editors, influencers and makeup artists. Sydney was the last stop on Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty World Tour after surprising fans in New York, Dubai, and Singapore over the last few weeks.

 

Hosted by Sephora and Fenty Beauty, guests played in a larger-than-life Fenty Beauty world full of fun and immersive brand experiences. Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick was brought to life with an oversized Saw-C Seesaw inspired by the orange lipstick shade ‘Saw-C.’ She gave the first worldwide sneak peek of her holiday collection with an oversized ‘Chill Owt” Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Palette that guests could stand in, throwing shimmery confetti in the air for photos to show their perfect highlight. The ‘Chill Owt’ palette is now on sale exclusively in Australia before the rest of the globe launches it beginning October 12th.

Following the party, Rihanna surprised clients who were shopping at Sephora’s flagship store on Pitt Street in Sydney. Fans were in awe as Rihanna did makeup touch-ups and took selfies with adoring fans. Sephora, in turn, surprised her with a customized Fenty Beauty surfboard that she signed, and will be given away in the store to one lucky guest in the next few weeks. Check the store for more details.

Fenty Beauty’s Global Makeup Artists, Priscilla Ono and Hector Espinal were also in attendance. Rihanna’s stunning makeup was done by Priscilla Ono, who used all Fenty Beauty to create her look:

Prep – PRO FILT’R INSTANT RETOUCH PRIMER
Foundation – PRO FILT’R SOFT MATTE LONGWEAR FOUNDATION in “320”
Under Eye – PRO FILT’R SOFT MATTE LONGWEAR FOUNDATION in “300”

Blotting Powder – INVISIMATTE BLOTTING POWDER
Eyes – NEW & LIMITED EDITION HOLIDAY KILLAWATT FOIL FREESTYLE HIGHLIGHTER PALETTE and MOROCCAN SPICE EYESHADOW PALETTE

Rihanna was inspired to create Fenty Beauty after years of experimenting with the best-of-the- best in beauty – and still seeing a void in the industry for products that performed across all skin types and tones. She launched a makeup line “so that women everywhere would be included,” focusing on a range of traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades.
