A Pop Lipstick We’re Obsessed With: Gerard Cosmetics

 

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog. This is going to be a casual post which is also my first post of the Gerard Cosmetic Lip products I got them through online order.

I’ve always wanted to try these lipsticks after hearing so many youtubers raved about them and also saw them on instagram.

Anyways, I apologized for posting this review a little late. Don’t get me wrong, I love them but it’s just that I wanted to try each shade before giving my final thoughts and opinion. Off the bet, I could clearly narrow a few that could be ranked as my stand out lip products so far if you continue reading …

So, I got a few lipsticks and lip glosses to show you guys in this post. When I tried them on my lips, I was completely sold. I was like – that’s what I’ve been missing all this time. I’m obsessed with them now.

To be honest, I really like the packaging of both the lipsticks and lip glosses. They look quite luxe and I’m loving it.

First of is the lip glosses I got in the shades Nude and Pouty Princess.

They are just ridiculously pigmented and resemble lipsticks more than anything. Incredibly buttery and creamy (as the names suggest!) they leave my lips feeling hydrated and smooth while the color lasts for hours. I’m quite impressed with these!

Each lip gloss clicks to lock when fully closed. This creates a seal to keep the lip gloss fresh. To talk more about the packaging, it gets better than the gold prettiness. There is also a mirror on the tube! eeee! Yes, a mirror. Oh and did I mention the light? This is a genius idea, they made this lip gloss all-in-one. How cool is that, right!

The light! It’s on the bottom of the cap, so when you point it towards your lips, it lights them up so you can see when you are applying the lip gloss. And,finally it comes with the standard doe foot applicator which makes gliding a breeze.

Here are the color swatches up closed.

About the gloss in general, the formula is a little hard to apply evenly but once done, bam, beauty except a little too sticky in my opinion. I find the texture to be thicker than other lip glosses I tried by far, which makes my lips feel sticky and heavy. Let me put it this way, this formula would definitely reminds you that you had a lip gloss on. If that make sense!

They didn’t have a strong smell except the shade in Pouty Princess which I find it to smell a little plastic-y, and the Nude smell like caramel. The scents didn’t bother me that much, it’s just scented enough to be pleasant without being overpowering.

Honestly, I’m sad to say that being not a huge fan of sticky lip gloss costs me a toll. I love the packaging and colors but the texture/ formula does bother me – so it’s a miss for me. I’ll probably pass it over to my daughter to try.

I decided to purchase the Hydra – Mattes because the curiosity was killing me, I mean the colors are gorgeous as is the packaging so I just HAD TO HAVE IT. Also I just really wanted to be the person that gives the best and the most honest review ever.

A blood red that will pull them in and take hold. Perfect for an evening wear for your truly striking makeup look.

These take between 2-5 minutes to fully dry on me. And they’re extremely comfortable to wear. I had absolutely no cracking, crumbling or flaking. These dried completely matte yet felt so so soft on the lips. I love love this!

The packaging is so pretty I really love it. Its got a frosted plastic bottle and a gold lid.

I find that with one swipe you can completely coat your entire lips, but I like to get more product to make sure that they’re fully covered or it can dry a little thin.

Just look at how pigmented this formula is! Intense red that’s so dramatic and classic. I mean LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL THIS IS!

Verdict on this product : I would BUY THESE – I’m so happy I did. The formula is great.

And now to the lipsticks!

Yes, a gold bullet. I really like it, very luxurious:) The bullets look like the MAC ones except they are not as high quality. Cute packaging nevertheless!

These offer nice pigment, they last decently long and they go on like a dream.

Throwing shade is about to have a whole new meaning especially when you have Fire Engine, 1995, Berry Smoothie and Vintage Rose to be added to your vanity.

They don’t tug at my lips and it makes them feel great the entire time the lipstick is on. Love love the high pigmentation of this product.

I have one of the pink shades and one of the coral shades but there are 19 in total, encompassing beiges, corals, reds, pinks and purples. Go to their website to find out more.

Swatches from left to right is Vintage Rose, 1995 (total perfect nude), Fire Engine and Berry Smoothie. I find they wear for a solid 3 to 4 hours, even after a few cups of coffee, and fade evenly.

And I would say that overall, I like these and recommend the lipstick and liquid lipstick. I also really really like the packaging.These are amazingly pretty, I think I’d live in it! hahaha!

Lastly, it’s worth mentioning the beauty with Gerard Cosmetics, is they DO ship to Canada (yay!) and often have sales/codes/offers for free shipping. Yes. Free shipping. To Canada. Yes!

Got any question about them, let me know in the comment below.

So, that’s it for today my friends! I hope to see you again on the next one:). Bye for now!

Love you guys!

BABES IN BLOGLAND COLLAB| CHRISTMAS TREE MAKEUP

 

HEY FRIENDS! Today’s post is in collaboration with my other three good friends namely, Ingrid from Curly Spring Blossom, Kaily from Hello Kaily and Stashy from Stash Matters. I echoed what Stashy mentioned in her blog, yes we scratched our heads thinking deeply how to do a Christmas Tree Makeup look. This calls for me to put on my CREATIVITY Thinking cap …(blink!blink!… blink!blink!).

thinking cap

It’s exactly one week before Christmas, I could imagine my family gathering downstairs by the fireplace exchanging and opening our presents in pyjamas, and yes under the Christmas tree.

I haven’t decided which makeup look to wear yet frankly but I’ve some great inspired look I found from pinterest to be of interest. I share here a few Christmas Tree look and could certainly need your help in giving suggestions to which would look glamy on me and you 🙂

What do you think of this one, the model wearing evergreen with pine cones and ornaments? Very unique, I love the green with a dash of golden yellow eye makeup look. To be honest, I couldn’t imagine myself to pull off with this gorgeous headdress on the model but I really love the color shadows used in this particular look.

This might be what I look like with a headdress on 😛

I’m going off topic here, but why don’t we all take a few moment to thank the soldiers, marines/navy, men and women in uniform today, how grateful and thankful we are for their service to keep our country and us safe. We’re thinking of them for many couldn’t be back for Christmas this year with their family.

Going back to where I started, below are some inspiration looks for your eyes to feast on or be inspired.

Or, maybe as Snow Queen look adorned with all white sparkly silver fir leaves and a beautiful headdress. I really like this Frozen look, looks cold but IT HAS STYLE. Anyways, here is a million dollar question. Who doesn’t like Elsa from FROZEN?

Are you thinking what I’m thinking, love? “Baby, it’s cold outside …” I would probably tell the guy, STOP whining and go home LOL! She’s wearing a smashing warm makeup with red winter berries decor and golden color hue Christmas tree makeup.  It looks Stunning and festive, it brings warmth and joy to my heart. ❤

Green is my favorite color when it comes to fashion style and eye makeup look. I have brown eyes so I can pull off with green eyeshadows nicely. According to Makeup Geek “Generally, teals and purples look best on brown eyes but other colors can work too”. Green is another eyeshadow color that looks amazing on brown eyes.  If you have hazel eyes, it makes them appear more green.

Which eyeshadow color is your favorite?  Do you notice your brown eyes “pop” more with certain colors?

Should I be a walking dictionary … I meant to say Walking Christmas tree, hahaha!

Yoda: What says you?

Or do a face paint of a Bon Sapin. This looks super cute and pretty in my opinion but definitely not on me. I’m too old to rock on this look.

Last but not least, a brighter and fun color makeup look that is so glamorous.

I hope you all have fun with your makeup!  Tell me below some things you notice work well with your eye color, and share pictures if you can 🙂
