Shortly after I started writing; I was out on Twitter, and I happened to run across a beautiful lady by the name of Jen Gerard. She is the head of Gerard Cosmetics. I was very impressed at how down to earth she is. As a result, I started looking into her company and her products. As time went by I was thrilled to be accepted into the GC Affiliate program. I love that I can purchase great products at a discount and that I can share a discount with others. If you are interested in trying out their products type in KERRY30 at the checkout for a 30% discount.
That said, this review is NOT sponsored, and the views and opinions are solely my own.
I ordered a Grapefruit scented setting spray, there are 11 different scents in total available. Everything from Watermelon to Coconut. The cost before the discount is $22 for 100ml. With the conversion to CAD, shipping at customs my price actually worked out to about $29.
Gerard Cosmetics Website Description:
Lock in your makeup look and look flawless for hours with our cooling, oil control mist that increases the look and longevity of your makeup.
I couldn’t wait to try it out, the bottle is recyclable plastic with a spray top. The scent was a very definable sharp Grapefruit. I think for my next order I will try something sweet. The smell does tend to linger on the skin. So, pick a scent that you won’t mind people asking you about in a couple of hours. The sprayer provides a fine gentle mist.
As promised, my makeup didn’t move at all. All day. I tried it for a week solid in a bunch of different conditions, and my makeup didn’t budge. So, on that front everything was excellent. The downside for me was that I found my eyes to be a little bit stingy after application. It went away pretty quickly and didn’t change my overall experience.
