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!

  6. I've been hearing SO much about Gerrard Cosmetics as of late. Perhaps they're not really worth the hype of they're drying. I think I dislike drying lipsticks as much as you do! At least the colours are gorgeous :)

  7. Hey Sophia, just came across your blog and now I'm a new reader :)
    Thanks for this review, since the formula is so drying, I don't think I will be a fan haha!

  13. The colors came out gorgeous! I hate that dry lipstick feeling. But the color payout is amazing. The last two colors have to be my favorite.

  18. I like the two darker shades and I agree with you that the pink isn't really your colour. The dark berry, however, looks fantastic!

  27. I personally like the Cherry Coridal. I think it can be tricky pulling off a dark color like that but you make it look easy!
