I just received these three new beautiful Gerard Cosmetics “Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipsticks”, so I thought it would be a perfect time to do a blog post reviewing them and swatching them for you all! Gerard Cosmetics have pretty recently come out with liquid lipsticks in their makeup line and are slowly creating a beautiful collection. Right now they have six liquid lipsticks a part of their collection altogether. These three that just came out are perfect shades for Fall and are quite popular colors for this season! I did a blog post with swatches of their three previous shades which you can find here. You can purchase these liquid lipsticks on their website. They were kind enough to give me some awesome codes for you all to cheapen the price of their products. You can use the code “juliasallure” for 25% off sitewide. I also have an awesome code which will make any 3 Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipsticks for USD$38.00. The code is “Julia3for38”. (The liquid lipsticks are originally USD$20.00 each)
Each liquid lipstick has a doe-foot applicator which makes it nice and easy to apply an even coat of their liquid lipstick. I noticed a slight change in formula for these new liquid lipsticks compared to the previous 3 I have. These new ones are a bit more creamy in consistency while I noticed the previous liquid lipsticks had a more liquid/loose consistency. They seem to dry the same on the lips – completely matte with no transferring but they don’t make your lips feel dry, they leave them pretty hydrated for such a matte formula. I have to say I really love the formula of their liquid lipsticks, they feel comfortable on the lips and they fade pretty evenly without cracking or crumbling off like some other liquid lipsticks can seem to do.
The three shades are:
IMMORTAL: a rich, opaque crimson red.
INVASION: a grey toned nude.
ECSTASY: a purple/mauve nude.
Swatches on my hand
As you can see by the swatches, each shade is highly pigmented and they do dry to a complete matte finish. Some of the lip swatches may look a bit wet still, but that is just because they did not dry 100% yet. Once they are completely dry they will look very matte and they will not transfer. I really adore these shades and I truly love their liquid lipstick formula. I am totally loving these grey/mauve nudes at the moment! I was so excited when I saw that this company released more Fall appropriate shades. Let me know your thoughts on these lippies and don’t forget to take advantage of the awesome codes the company hooked me up with! ❤
