So as many of you may know, Gerard Cosmetics is a brand that has recently taken off- into full flight. Jaclyn Hill’s newest creations, “1995“, “Butter Cream” and “Rose Hill” have all been hits in the lippie department of the company. Gerard Cosmetics’ Color Your Smile lip gloss collection was created to compliment Whitening Lightning’s line, a teeth whitening product range. Since then, the line has expanded into 24 lip glosses, 6 lipsticks as well as brow palettes, a BB cream and much more.
You may be familiar with Gerard Cosmetics’ Instagram page, which often features big Instagram personalities such as Amrezy, Desi Makeup, Lustrelux and more. It’s almost the lip version of Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Instagram page, featuring brows and expert makeup looks.
Also, if you download the Whitening Lightning app on your mobile device, you can get 35% off sitewide and free shipping!
Today, I will be reviewing the “Nude” lipstick, Jaclyn Hill’s lipstick “1995” and “Nude” lip gloss.
I absolutely fell in love with the packaging as soon as I saw it. The lipsticks look like tiny little golden bullets with “Gerard Cosmetics” in black lettering and the lip gloss is in the same gold packaging with a mirror on the side as well as a light on the inside of the lip gloss so you could apply your lip gloss literally anywhere you go. They are all small and compact and purse-friendly.
“Nude” lipstick retails for $19.00 along with “1995” and “Nude” lip gloss retails for $24.00. They are both available on Gerard Cosmetics’ website, as I’ve linked the websites above. They often have sales, deals and discount codes so watch out for them!
This is the lipstick in “Nude”. Both “Nude” and “1995” are very similar in their color especially when captured on the camera, but when swatched, as you will see below, they come off very differently, as well as on the lips. Nude lipstick is a creamy nude with a hint of pink. This formula is very creamy and soft and wears for an extended period of time.
This is the lipstick in “1995” created by Jaclyn Hill. She created the color on trend with the whole Kylie Jenner lip fad that took off this year as well as the influence of 90’s grunge era. The color is a deep mauve with slight brown undertones. Keep in mind all these shades will look different depending on your own skin tone and lip color, as we all have a bit of pigment on our lips. I think this color suits a wide variety of skin tones though, and I really do enjoy it on myself.
When applied, the formula is very creamy and buttery, and glides on with perfection. The color is very pigmented and wears for a long time.
And alas, the lip gloss in “Nude”; and you can clearly see the little light that is built into the casing of the lipgloss, that turns off once it’s capped on. This is actually my favorite gloss out of all three because of the way it looks on my lips. It has a nude, coral tone with a bit of pink, and has a beautiful shine once applied. The formula is not sticky and has such a great wear time.
I tend to wipe off anything on my lips before eating and I do eat a lot through the day but when I do wipe it off, all the product still stays on and the gloss still remains apparent on my lips. The lip gloss is formulated to make your teeth appear whiter and I do believe it makes my teeth appear whiter, which is always a plus!
