Hello everyone, so a few weeks back i received my Gerard Cosmetics package, FINALLY! Ive been following them on Instagram for a while and i fell totally in love with all the stuff they’ve been coming out with.
I got 4 lipsticks, because you know i’m a hoarder and lipsticks are something i love to hoard.
So the shades i got were; Rodeo Drive which is a warm neutral mauve, Tequila Sunrise which is a warm peach, Fire engine which is an orange toned red and Cherry Cordial which is deep maroon.
I love the packaging of these lipsticks, the shape is similar to MAC lipsticks but the gold packaging just makes it 3000 times more attractive. You get a pretty decent amount of product in the stick which is bound to last you a while.
Now the finish of all these 4 lipsticks is different, i would say Rodeo Drive and fire engine have more of a creamy texture and finish on the lips, and i say this because they are one of those finishes with which you can press your lips together and move them! However Tequila Sunrise and Cherry Cordial are matte finish lipsticks and a bit drying, i’m not a huge matte lip fan and so Tequila sunrise is my least favorite out of all primarily because it makes my lips feel dry, i love the color of it thou, a very wearable color it is indeed, it is my favorite peach color and because i love the color so much i make it work by using a lot of lip scrub and vaseline!
Cherry Cordial is my FAVORITE! Love the color, it is not as drying as Tequila Sunrise and is more wearable, i love the shade of the lipstick, it is the kind of deep red which gives you a very retro meets classic look.
I feel like it is one of those colors that a model on the cover of Vogue magazine would wear, now i could be raving about this lippie more than you like but I’m just expressing my love for Cherry Cordial, i just can’t love it enough!
