Review: Gerard Cosmetics Lipsticks





(L-R) Buttercup, 1995, Nude, Cherry Cordial








At long last I have got my hands on some of the Gerard Cosmetics Lipsticks and boy oh boy are they beautiful. If you are an avid fan of many American Beauty Vloggers like I am then you would have seen these lipsticks talked about a lot, for months I have seen these pop up everywhere. Two of my personal favourites Carli Bybel and Jaclyn Hill rave about these lipsticks and I knew that I needed them in my life. I ordered the four lipstick deal from www.whiteninglightning.com, and used the code thankful4 to get four shades of the lipsticks for $38 dollars(£24.82), which for four really good lipsticks is a pretty good price. The shipping was free last month which was another added bonus, and they came really quickly! As I have been lusting over the Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks for quite a while its fair to say that I was very excited when the four of them arrived in the post. The first thing that caught my eye was the packaging which is absolutely gorgeous, it's similar to the MAC lipstick shape but it has a shiny gold casing instead. I chose the following four shades:

Buttercup - A sweet pink, this is one of my favourite of the four its such a wearable everyday shade and is really nice if you like slightly glossy pink lips which still give great colour pay off. 

1995 - This is the perfect shade if your into the 'Kylie Jenner lip'. This is the lipstick that I have really heard talked about a lot. It was especially formulated to resemble the Kylie lip and it really does. Its quite a dark natural lip colour and really makes the lips look fuller.

Nude - An orange toned nude. A medium nude, its not too dark and its not too light.  

Cherry Cordial - A vampy dark red/purple. I'm really excited to wear this one out as I love dark lips and its a really deep shade.

The formula of the Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks is really nice - its creamy to apply and they appear really matte on the lips (apart from Buttercup which has a slight gloss to it) but they don't dry your lips out at all. The lasting power is also on point they last for a really long time, I would even say some of them especially 1995 is on MAC's matte lipsticks staying power levels. I really love all of the shades that I picked up but would say Buttercup and 1995 are my absolute favourites! On a whole I'm really impressed with them and I really want to try some more of the Gerard Cosmetics products, they also have a really nice selection of lip glosses that complement the lipsticks.

Hope your all having a lovely day!
