A little while back Gerard Cosmetics had a whopping 50% off their website to celebrate them hitting 1 million followers on Instagram. I hade been wanting to make an order for a while (see my last haul here) so this discount was the perfect excuse! Here's what I picked up....
L-R: Iced Mocha, Ecstasy, Serenity, Ruby Slipper
I haven't tried the Hydra Matte Liquid lipsticks so I picked up 4 in the shades Iced Mocha, Ecstasy, Ruby Slipper and Serinitu which is the colour Manny MUA created for the brand. The formula of these is one of the nicest liquid lipsticks I have tried,the pigmentation is amazing, the colour doesn't bleed I don't even have to put a lipliner with them and the biggest bonus is that they don't leave you with that 'but hole' lips look (LOL) like some liquid lipsticks do!!
Next I picked up the Star Powder in the shade 'Marylin' which is a beautiful gold/warm toned highlighter, the above swatch does not do the colour justice. This highlighter is now my firm favourite, it is so super pigmented you barely have to touch your brush into the powder to get the most amazing pay off. I can't wait to get my hands on all of the other shades of the Star Powders!!
The final thing I picked up is the Eternal Eyeliner in black, which is a liquid eyeliner. I love the applicator on this its so easy to use and creates a perfect winged line. However I'm not 100% keen on the formula of the liner, once applies the liner dries with a sort of sheen to it, so to the eye the liner looks almost wet. It also dries to more a dark grey colour rather than a jet black so I tend to use this liner to get the shape of the wing and I then go over it with another black liner to deepen the colour.
Have you picked up any Gerard Cosmetics products recently? I'd love to hear some recommendations of what you think I should try next!
