BEAUTY REVIEW: W/ GERARD COSMETICS



Hiiii ! Today's post is pretty exciting because it's been a really long time since I write anything about beauty. I am going to try really hard to incorporate beauty into the weekly posts; As much as I love everything about style and outfits, beauty is another area of interest which I secretly adore. While I am writing this I am currently looking for ways to store my makeup, which is practically spilling out of my dresser drawers LOL !!

Anyways, I recently ordered some lipsticks from Gerard Cosmetics and I completely fell in love with them. Not sure why I have waited so long to try these. I suspect because I've stuck to the usual brands, but NO MORE ! I know these will quickly become some of my favorites. Also, the best part, they are always on sale ! I was able to get three of their lipsticks for $20, which it an amazing deal (makeup wise anyways..) !!! 

Ok Let's get started...!

I have to admit, I am a true sucker for presentation and cute packaging. Although I regret not taking a photo of it, I'll still tell you about it lol. All of their orders come in a sleek black package complete with a adorable message on the top of the box. They also packaged the lipsticks nicely with tissue paper and cute "confetti", which I appreciate. I know this is kind of silly to talk about but it really makes the experience of opening up a package more pleasant and enjoyable, and Gerard cosmetics gets an A+ for that !


The lipsticks come in black little boxes; and I must say I absolutely love the gold tube packaging of the actual lipsticks! It makes them look so luxurious and easy to identify in my overflowing tub of other lipsticks ;) ! Simple, but it makes a statement, which I love. 




It was difficult choosing from their selections since they have so many nice ones but I decided with these three: Underground, 1995, and Cherry Cordial. The second I saw the colors in person, I was so happy I chose them!!!

Here they are!
L to R: 1995, Underground, Cherry Cordial


Now let's talk about the shades specifically....


1995 : I've seen and read so many great things about this shade, and now I know why. It is absolutely beautiful. It is a mix between a very subtle burnt orange with a hint of brown. It is described as a matte color, but it glided on smoothly on my first try. This is a must have color !


Underground: To be quite honest, I was a little scared of this color when I saw it online but I just took a risk and chose it. I never gravitate toward gray tones or muted colors because I feel like they would make me look sick LOL...But oh. my. goodness. I was/am so wrong about this shade. It is the PERFECT mix of a cool gray color with some pink undertones. As much as I thought it would be a "scary shade" to try, I know I will be wearing it often. It is such a nice change from your typical nude color; so take the plunge like I did and get this color!! Totally worth it. 


Cherry Cordial: I just knew I had to try one of their dark shades because I feel like the darker shades are always so flattering on everyone. This is a great shade and it definitely lives up to its name. It is a very dark burgundy red almost close to purple but its not!!! It is such a nice change to the other dark shades that I own which are more on the purple side. This shade can really transform any makeup look.
