GERARD COSMETICS LIPGLOSSES | BUTTERCREAM, CORAL CRAZE AND CANDY KISS



It currently feels like the antractic in Melbourne and I know people from UK and Canada are laughing at me because an Australian winter is never really that cold. However, this weather has  caused me to hiberate and online shop. 

While browsing through the pages of Gerard Cosmetics' website, I decided I needed a little injection of summer by buying pastel and bright lip glosses, my kind of logic. A few months back, I  wrote a post all about my love for these gems and the love hasn't changed, it's only grown.

Coral Craze - A true orange coral.



This thing I've always adored about these lip glosses is they last an incredible amount of time on the lips.  While the formula gets some getting use to, as they are incredibly tacky, they're worth the momentary discomfort, because they end up melting into the lips and locking in for the rest of the day. At times, I'll be wearing this lip gloss over a lipstick and am constantly stocked when by lunch it's still on the lips and as an added bonus not feathering.

They're also highly pigmented and exactly like what's shown through the packaging, which I love! There is nothing I dislike more than a beautifully pigmented lip gloss in the package, that ends up sheering out on the lips.  For me, these are very much a lipstick/lipgloss hybrid without being a liquid lipstick.

The packaging is also extremely sturdy, so you don't have to worry about finding lipgloss all over your handbag. Overall, if you're looking for a highly pigmented gloss, I'd recommend giving Gerard Cosmetics a go. There's always a discount code floating around, so you can always snap them up when they are on sale.

    1. Me too. I normally hate a tacky gloss but I always layer them so they don't feel as sticky.

  4. I've never been only impressed with these lip glosses. I have coral craze and candy kiss and I find the formula to drag as you're applying it, it isn't smooth or blendable and they tend to cling to dry patches. They are very pigmented though which is nice

    1. To be honest with you, I've never had this issue because I've always layered them over lipstick which assists them in gliding. I've never been a fan of gloss on its own xo
