A girl can never have enough lipsticks!
Todays post is on a new liquid lipstick that arrived in the post today. I am so obsessed with liquid lipsticks right now, they’re so lightweight, durable and easy to apply! I’ve never ever tried any of the Gerard cosmetics products before and now i can’t believe why. I’ve been blown away! This product is not only an absolute steal; it is a gorgeous colour and looks divine!
So let’s start of with first impressions on the Hydra Matte liquid lipstick. It looks so sleek and classy. The packaging almost reminds me of Chanel packaging. I like the gold featured on the box and how it’s simplistic yet superb. the lipstick itself is in a long tube which is frosted with a gold lid printed with Gerard Cosmetics. It looks pricey and to my surprise this item wasn’t expensive at all. It was just under £10!! To me thats a fabulous price for what you’re getting. I was expecting it to be around £12 to £14.
The texture of this is creamy almost mousse like.It glides on so easy and feels amazing. I find that most liquid lipsticks go dry and flaky after a while but this one, well this one is gold dust. It did not go dry at all. Another thing I’m super impressed with is how durable it is. I’ve been wearing it for about 4-5 hours and its still there! That is so impressive, even after eating and drinking. It doesn’t just disappear either, it just slowly fades.
So the shade i bought was called ecstasy. Its a superb colour. Pinkish, purplish kind of colour. I can’t even begin to describe it! I’ve never really worn shades like this but I’m definatly going to start! I wore it with a winged liner, greyish eyeshadow and some falsies. If i was just wearing this for an everyday simple look i’d wear with just mascara. You can also over line with this as well, the line of your actual lip is less visible than other products. I really liked that!. I bought this off beauty bay as its an american brand so their actual website charges a lot for taxes.
Would love to know what you guys think!
Lots of love,
