Gwen Stefani surprised Carly Pearce with a gift ahead of their “special one-of-a-kind performance” at the upcoming 2023 CMT Music Awards.

On March 18, Stefani took to social media to share a clip of her hand-delivering a present to Pearce, who was in the midst of touring with Stefani’s husband, Blake Shelton, on his Back To The Honky Tonk Tour.

The clip documents Stefani’s journey from Los Angeles on a private plane to Pearce’s dressing room backstage at one of Shelton’s concerts. 

“Ok Carly Pearce, you told me you were a GXVE fan. I’m about ready to hook you up,” Stefani said. 

“We’re doing it! Where are you Carly?” Stefani said as she made her way through the backstage area to Pearce’s dressing room. “Look what I brought for you all the way from Los Angeles.” 

“Oh my God!” Pearce said in shock as Stefani handed her a GXVE-branded black box full of makeup products.

“These are the best products in the whole world! It’s my favorite, I told her I bought my own earlier to the show because I just wanted her to know this is all I use. So, thank you!” Pearce said as she graciously thanked and hugged Stefani.

The generous gift package included a red GXVE hoodie as well as a makeup bag and several other GXVE products such as lipstick, eyeshadow, and more.

Pearce also shared the clip of Stefani surprising her with GXVE goodies.

The high-quality makeup brand, which is sold exclusively online and at Sephora, features an array of products, including eyeshadow, mascara, lip gloss, gel liner, eyebrow pencils and more.
