Gerard Cosmetics- the brand becoming more and more famous from Youtubers and Instagram beauty gurus. Jaclyn Hill also collaborated with them and created a few of her own colours. Naturally, I started to get really curious so I began following them on Instagram. They frequently post lip combo sales, where you basically can buy bundles of 2, 4, 5 and 6 lip glosses/lipsticks for basically $10 each vs. $19 a pop. I really wanted to try them out, so the day they posted that they were doing free worldwide shipping I just had to order!
They were offering a bundle of 2 lip glosses and 2 lipsticks for $39 and also a bundle of any two lip products for $20. I got both combos since why not?
GLOSSES (from left):
Shimmer of Hope: A nice pale pink nude! I chose this over their famous ‘Nude’ because I wanted a light nude that wasn’t too warm.
Coral Craze: A super gorgeous coral-pink.
Rose Hill: This is one of the colours that Jaclyn Hill created for this brand, and I wanted to try at least one from her line! This is a coral-red with a slightly cool tone.
These glosses are so pigmented!! No sheerness happening at all. They aren’t very sticky and they almost remind me of liquid lipstick because they go on a bit thick for gloss. They are designed to compliment the GC lipsticks, and it always looks amazing when you layer them on top. These are just as long lasting as most gloss, so you get a couple hours or so.
LIPSTICKS (from left):
Berry Smoothie: Goes on lighter than it looks. This is an ideal minimal effort colour when you want to be a little more done up without too bold of a lip colour.
Tequila Sunrise: This perfectly captures summer! Its a perfect pinky-coral and I’m obsessed!
Kimchi Doll: This was made by Youtube guru Sophia Chang, and this is probably one of my fave nude lipsticks ever. It’s a perfect muted pink-nude and it gives a gorgeous “no-makeup” pout.
These lipsticks are different from anything I’ve ever tried- they go on SO light! They are pigmented but I feel like I have room to build them up too. They have a matte finish but they don’t dry out your lips as badly as other brands like MAC!
Here’s a closer look at Sophia Chang’s ‘Kimchi Doll’. I just love the pretty black script on the tube!
Each gloss also has a mirror on the side and the tube lights up when you open it! The light is kind of a cool feature at night, but sometimes when I’m out and want to touch up my lips, I don’t necessarily want to be lit up!
I’m happy with my purchase and look forward to future orders from this company! They frequently have combo deals, so if you’re interested in trying them I recommend following them on Instagram as you’ll always know when they’ve got free shipping! I also want to add that I live in Canada, and I got my package within like 3 days, so that was awesome.
