A Li'l Gerard Cosmetics Haul with Swatches

Gerard Cosmetics haul

It has been over four months since I have been MIA, whoops! I am really sorry for the lack of posts, I just wasn't feeling very inspired during that time. A while back, I went some Gerard Cosmetics shopping when they were having their 50% off sale. Who can resist that, right? And when I received my package, all I wanted to do was to blog about it. Talk about some inspiration!

In a nutshell, this is what I picked:
1. Lipstick in 'Nude' (matte)
2. Lipstick in 'Tequila Sunrise' (matte)
3. Lipstick in 'Vintage Rose' (satin)
4. Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Ballet Slipper'

I was kinda skeptical about the liquid lipsticks since I have yet to find a formula that agrees with my lips. I might be one of those few who did not fall in love with the Colourpop ones and found them too cakey and dry. But I'd say on first swatch, I wasn't let down. Although I'd know for sure when I actually wear it for a couple of hours. And I LOVED the colour!

The lipsticks, surprisingly, were a tad bit of a disappointment. They lacked badly in pigmentation. I had to rub them back and forth to get some colour to show on my lips. I prefer wearing them with a lip liner underneath. All three colours were no doubt beautiful and the satin finish was very flattering and comfortable on the lips. I got them for around $10 each which doesn't make me regret my purchase. I would have been bummed if I had paid full price of $19. MAC definitely has better formula then!

Gerard Cosmetics always has some sale/deal going on their website and don't charge a lot of international shipping as well. I'd definitely recommend picking a few goodies because they are worth a try!

  4. Oh, the pigmentation of the lipsticks seems like a big letdown. I really want to read your views on the liquid lipsticks because they are in my wishlist. Thanks for the great post. :)
