Nadia Hussain is calling out Nabila for calling her out
Former supermodel Nadia Hussain caused a ruckus on social media after she shared a screenshot of a personal chat with the renowned makeup guru Nabila.
Nadia recently launched a new product - a makeup palette - for her makeup line; it is an all-in-one product that can be used for a last-minute touch-up, giving seemingly flawless skin.
When the ace stylist got to know about Nadia's latest product, she went on to message the latter, saying, "Don't you have a brain of your own?" Nabila was referring to how Hussain’s product is similar to what Nabila already offers.
How do we know this? Hussain shared a screenshot of their private conversation on Instagram.
The model then went on to reply, "Firstly, it's not your copyright item. Secondly, it's a totally different product anyway." She added, "You [Nabila] are a brand on your own. Why should it bother you?. No need to be insecure."

But that wasn't it. Nadia accompanied the screenshot with a fuming caption. "This is truly what being insecure means!" the model shared, adding, "I am just shocked, speechless, appalled, confused, and yet feel victorious at the same time! For someone of Nabila's repute, to stoop to so low and send me such an underhanded message on the launch of my product is just beyond me! I cannot tag her because she has blocked me."
"I have attached a quick scroll through of my conversations with her since 2019 for people to know that yes it was her who sent me that ridiculous message, and also a screenshot of a few digits from her phone number for those who know her personally so no one can say these images are doctored or that it was sent from someone else's number whose name I had changed to her’s!"
When approached to speak on the matter, Nabila laughed. "Never a dull moment in my life, right?" she told The Express Tribune. "The palette was a concept that was developed in my bag. It's my feature, my finest production."
Nabila said her trademark product was in the making for fifteen years before it hit the stores."I challenge it openly for anyone to claim this product as their own. It's one of a kind and you won't find it anywhere else in the world."
Talking about the screenshot of a personal message Nadia shared, the stylist shared how she came to know about the former's recently launched palette. "Somebody sent it to me as a joke - meaning how it was the same product. My shortcoming was that I engaged in a conversation. I shouldn't have talked to her," she shared.
"Copycats are a form of flattery. That's what I think. I don't want to stoop to her level by responding to a post she has shared. That's not my style. I am better than that. What I do want to say is that it [sharing the screenshot] was rather crass of her. We speak often, so I know she knows about my product."
Hussain wasn’t available to comment on the matter despite repeated attempts.
