GERARD COSMETICS LIQUID LIPSTICKS

Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks | £9.50 (varies, please see end of post)

I've had these liquid lipsticks for a while now, I thought I'd try and test out all the colours I own and its individual texture before writing up my full review on them. I loved Gerard Cosmetics original lipsticks (reviewed here) so when these came out, I obviously had to get my hands on them. I purchased 7 of the 15 shades which I thought I'd reach for more and will suit my complexion. The range consists of a range of reds, pinks, grey toned purples, browns and oranges - so there's definitely a shade to suit every one of our complexions.

THE SHADES
Cher
- medium rosy brown with warm undertones


Ecstasy

- purple with neutral undertones


1995

- mauvey brownish nude


Iced Mocha

- mauvey pink with deep brown undertones

Everything Nice
- soft nude with beige undertones


Invasion

purple with cool grey undertones


Gravity

- deep purple with cool grey undertones

FORMULA
These are slightly on the thick side and slightly moussey. The doe-foot applicator makes it really easy to apply and control the product. I tend to wipe off all the product in the edge of the tube and use what's left on the applicator because these are super pigmented. They dry 100% matte within a few seconds but not to the point it dries out your lips - no cracking, no bleeding, no peeling, no flaking.

LONGEVITY
They last a good few hours and do slightly fade on the inner part of the lips after eating as most liquid lipsticks tend to do. They last even longer on the lips when worn with a lip liner underneath.
