Liquid Lipsticks Love: Gerrard Cosmetics Longwear Lipsticks #1




So I wanted to start a new series on liquid lipsticks because of my love for them and because a lot of the liquid lipsticks I post on my Instagram I've always had questions in terms of formula and whether I liked the different lipsticks I posted about. To be honest I don't like every liquid lipstick in fact my first experience wearing one was so bad it took me a while to reach for any of them again.

Today I will be discussing the Gerrard Cosmetics Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipsticks. I bought these for half price on beauty bay
because they were on sale and I needed a liquid lipstick that was longwear for holiday. I purchased two lipsticks one was in the colour Mile high and Cher. Watching the swatches on YouTube these were my favourites.

THE PACKAGING


I love the packaging for these lipsticks I was quite surprised when they arrived because I didn't know that the packaging from the boxes to the actually bottles would look so sleek and elegant so I am really impressed with the packaging.


THE FORMULA

So when I first opened the bottle I realised that the formula smelt really good it reminded me of sweets so nice. It was a bit tricky the application at first because of the way the brush was shaped but I got there in the end and now I'm so use to it that its fine.After applying it I noticed that the formula was different from any liquid lipstick I have tried it dried in 2-4 mins after application but it wasn't drying on the lips it felt really comfortable. The lipstick dried completely matte but with no crackling, crumbling or flaking.

Also I wore this lipstick out and I ate,drank and laughed and it stayed on for such a long time I never reapplied and when it faded it was a natural fade not like that chappy or patchy fading that you tend to get from other liquid lipsticks. The formula for these bad boys are golden I don't even use mine alot because I save them for special occasions.

SWATCHES


I absolutely love the colour Cher I think its such a versatile colour that can be worn no matter what skin colour you are. Mile High on the other hand didn't suit me a whole lot but that could be down to the fact that I had gotten a tan from being at holiday so I cant wait to try it around winter by itself. These two colours however make a stunning Ombre lip with Cher on the outside and Mile High on the inner parts of your lips. 

My swatches didn't quite turn out how I wanted I attempted to swatch in a heart shape but got distracted and it ended up looking like a sort of cloud haha!. I would have re-swatched it but I love these liquid lipsticks so much I couldn't bring myself to swatch it again. ( That's real love)

OVERALL
I purchased these at Beauty Bay when they had a sale for £5.50 but there original retail price is £11 which is not bad considering how great they are.If you'd like to give them a purchase you can find them Here! 

So the packaging is great, formula is great, there cruelty free and the colours are stunning. I've currently got my eyes on 1995 and Everything Nice so I will probably give them a purchase very soon!


Can a liquid lipstick be long wear and moisturising at the same ?


I hope you found this review helpful! I tried to include as much information as possible but overall I'm quite happy with these. I would love to know if you've tried them and what are your thoughts!

  11. Great review. I haven't worn a liquid lipstick in a while. I just kind of got tired of the stickyness. How is this one for stickyness? I like a bit of shine in my lipstick too so it's hard to find both non-sticky and shiny at the same time.
