You must be knowing by now from my previous posts here and here how much I love Gerard Cosmetics. Gerard Cosmetics is best known for their revolutionary Hydra Matte Lipsticks which are super matte and highly pigmented. O! How I wish I could own all of them. Though, I do have a few in my kitty that I would like to share with you.
Price – $20 (INR 1,300)
What shades of a lipstick does a girl need basically? A Red, A Pink & A Nude, isn’t it? I have picked the basic essential shades of a lipstick for this blogpost. These shades are not only in the essential’s list but are also one of the best sellers and popular shades from Gerard Cosmetics.
The three shades are –
- COACHELLA – It is a bright Pink colour.
- 1995 – As the year suggests, 1995 was about browns and nudes and this is the perfect nude/my lips but better kind of shade and so 90s.
- IMMORTAL – Wow! This shade is purely fierce, its SO Red. It takes two layers to get the real colour as applying just one layer gives a weird pinkish red?!
Review – The lipsticks glides on the lips like a cream. It is not at all runny. I love its texture and just a single swipe gives an opaque finish to the lips. A second coat can be applied to give a better colour to the lips. Its full coverage formula and dries instantly giving a velvety matte look to the lips. Despite being very matte, these lipsticks are not drying at all. The lipsticks stays on the lips till you take it off; Immortal made fade a bit on consumption of food and drinks but nothing to worry about.
I love these lipsticks and have already ordered a few more shades from the Hydra Matte range. I highly recommend it to you guys if you love matte lipsticks and strongly dislike sheer and creamy textures.
Until next time with more product reviews, xoxo.
