I’m so excited to be writing this post – Gerard Cosmetics has come out with a new product line which is their Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipsticks. Many of you know how popular liquid lipsticks are at the moment and it seems that almost every company is coming out with them. Liquid lipsticks can be tricky as there are many different formulas and not every liquid lipstick sets/wears the same. The formula of the Gerard Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks are quite liquid-y but they apply evenly on the lips and dry to a matte finish, while also feeling comfortable on the lips. They are matte but have a certain amount of moisture to them which I really appreciate. Each lipstick retails for USD$20.00 and there are just three out at the moment. Gerard Cosmetics was kind enough to give me an awesome code for you guys which will make any 3 Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipsticks for USD$38.00 plus FREE SHIPPING! The code is “Julia3for38”. I also have a regular sitewide code which is valid for 25% off your entire purchase which is: “juliasallure”. You can purchase everything from their website.
One of the Liquid Lipsticks in the shade “Serenity” is very special as the talented Makeup Artist & Beauty Guru on YouTube “Manny Mua” created the color with Gerard Cosmetics. I love supporting makeup artists and he did such an amazing job with this shade – it’s sooo gorgeous!!
Here are the swatches on my hand of each color:
Serenity: a warm pink, with hints of brown.
Aphrodite: a truer, peach based nude.
Mercury Rising: a bright orange based red.
Here are the swatches on my lips (one layer applied):
Overall I am really impressed with these liquid lipsticks. They’re extremely long lasting and are really comfortable to wear. They also fade really evenly and naturally after hours of wear. Some other liquid lipsticks I’ve tried can flake off the lips and feel really dry, but this formula is really hydrating and wears beautifully for hours. So excited that Gerard Cosmetics came out with these liquid lipsticks and I can’t wait to for them to release more shades!
