Gerard Cosmetics

There has been so much hype about Gerard Cosmetics' lipsticks that I just had to buy some and try them out for myself. I bought only three lipsticks from them because these were the only colours that really caught my attention. I got the lipstick colours in All Dolled Up, Fire Engine and Cherry Cordial.

First of all, the packaging is gorgeous! It reminds me of the Mac lipsticks but with the all round gold coating. Packaging is definitely an A+. I love having these in my collection and just looking at the packaging makes me happy (sucker for nice packaging, I know, but who isn't?!).

The formula of these lipsticks are not my favourite. They kind of remind me of the Lime Crime lipsticks in the sense that they are hard to put on. They definitely don't glide on nicely like some of the other lipsticks that I have tried. The formula also is really drying on the lips. The colour does last quite a while and also stains my lips which is a huge plus for me!

Out of all of them my favourite is probably Fire Engine. It's such a nice red that has sort of a orange tint to it. Cherry Cordial is a great colour for the fall but All Dolled Up is a bit too barbie pink for me and I don't think it really suits me.

Overall, these lipsticks are quite nice and I would buy more if Gerard Cosmetics came out with more colours!

October Beauty Favs

October is now gone and November is here... Where has time gone? Feel like just yesterday I was getting excited for Halloween!
Anyways, here are some things I have been loving in October.

Dolce&Gabanna 3 L'Imperatrice is my FAVOURITE perfume and I just got another one and I have been absolutely loving this all of October. It smells very sweet and girly. If you can get your hands on one of these I say get it! You won't regret it if you love girly perfumes!

NARS Blush in Desire is a blush I have been wearing all throughout October. I know the colour looks a bit intimidating but it gives you just the nicest natural pink flush on your cheeks. But beware it is very pigmented so a little goes a long way. You can never go wrong with a NARS blush!

Evian Facial Spray has been a lifesave this month. Since where I live is starting to get really cold, my face has been feeling so dry (not to mention I have dry skin from the beginning). But this has really helped my skin when I'm on the go to give some moisture. Plus it feels very refreshing on the face.

Becca Hightlighter in Moonstone gives you the nicest highlight. This is my first Becca product and so far I'm really impressed with it! This is the lighest colour and like the blush, this is very pigmented so make sure you only grab a little on your brush for that inner glow look!

Stila Waterproof Brow is very different as it is more like a ink pen rather than the usually brow pencils. I was really scared to use it at first but it gives you the look of having more hair on those sparse areas on your brow. I use this with my Anastasia Brow Wiz and it gives you a full natural looking brows! You must try it out!

L'oreal Miss Manga Mascara is better than any high end mascara, in my opinion. I love this mascara! It holds my curl, it gives me volume and length! I have been grabbing this everyday and I think this is going to be a holy grail product! The only downside is that this mascara dries out really fast but since it is quite affordable, it's no big deal.

Soap&Glory Sexy Motherpucker in Fuschia-Ristic has been my go-to lip colour for October. I love this product. It goes on smoothly and doesn't leave a sticky feel plus the colour lasts for quite some time! I am in love with this colour. It is a orangey tone but looks amazing on your lips!
