Shortly after I started writing; I was out on Twitter and I happened to run across a wonderful 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 very happy to be accepted into the GC Affiliate program. I love that I can purchase great products at a discount and that I have the ability to 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 mine.
There are endless choices when it comes to lipsticks from this company. Everything from the classic bullet style (that I purchased) to liquid lipsticks, to glitter lipsticks, to building your own lip kits. I fell in love with the shade Berry Smoothie so that is what I ordered.
Gerard Cosmetics Website Description:
A beautiful mix of fruity and complex hues combine to create our Berry Smoothie lipstick. Opaque, sophisticated and fresh, this color will add delicious dazzle to your makeup look. We blended up Berry Smoothie for the makeup lover who craves an elegant and ultra chic hue. Full coverage and a super comfortable formula combine to create an elegant and effortless lip color.
This lipstick sells for $19 for 0.14oz. With taxes, shipping and duties this cost $27. This shade applied smooth and easy. It felt hydrating on my lips and not heavy. I love the color. It is just so pretty. The product stayed in place and was perfect for about 4 hours. Eating and drinking did prompt immediate touch ups. There was no bleeding or feathering even without a liner.
