_11 / GERARD COSMETICS HYDRA-MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICKS, REVIEW & SWATCHES

💄

 

Hi guys ! Welcome back. This week was terribly full of work, and finally I had one week end day to post this review. Today, lets talk about the Gerard Cosmetics Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipsticks. I discovered these on instagram, and I was like “Girl these colors drives me craaaazy”, and the minute later I had 4 of them in my basket. They are 20$ one but, the really cool thing about Gerard Cosmetics is that they have super fucking cool deals. At the moment, you can get 3 lip products for 35$ with the code Hydra35, 4 lip products for 45$ with the code Hydra45 and you can also have 3 different lip products (gloss, regular lipstick and liquid lipstick) for 20$. Seriously, isn’t that sick ? Anyway.

First of all, the packaging looks really minimalist and nice, and doesn’t look cheap. The standard tiny moussy applicator makes the product easy to apply. But, because there is a BUT, at first, I was fucking chocked about the lipstick size. Like on camera you can’t really see it but it’s like soooo small. Almost the size of a Nyx Soft Matte lip cream. Ok it’s not a really confusing thing I know, but I expected a taller tube. Annnyyywayyy (neurosis bitch).

I got these 4 gorgeous shades : 1995 (my birth year ahah), a beautiful reddish nude brown, Cher, a mauvy cool tone, Iced mocha, a cool tone mauvy brown and Plum crazy, a deep red-brown. By the way, these liquid lipsticks have a strong strawberry sugar scent that fades away at the application.
But guys, even if the color range is insanely beautiful, the coolest thing is the formula. OMG WHERE DO I START ? This is a creamy-liquidy texture that goes on lips like a fucking dream. It takes a little time to dry, like 2 or 3 minutes, but when it’s dry, it’s like dry for ever.  It’s so beautiful I wanna cry. This formula feels really velvety on the lips, and seems to be more “hydrating” than other liquid lipsticks. And oh god, this stays FOR EVER ON THE LIPS. For the first test I wore it on an entire day, eating, kissing, talking and it stays for 10 hour, no crumbling, no tackyness, no fading (even in the inner part of the lips, yes, seriously). I was so chocked because I think that this formula as almost dethroned my LimeCrime on lasting power.

(Excuse these messy swatches and this horrible skin)

As you probably noticed, I’m literally in love with these liquid lipsticks, and I just can totally recommend them. Even if they are a little bit pricy, with the special offers, you can definitely find the shades that you want for a super duper price !

_03 / BENEFIT ROLLER LASH MASCARA, REVIEW & DEMO

💫

Hi there ! Little saturday post because I’m currently testing the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara and wanted to share my thoughts with you little witches 💜 Obviously, I’m not a mascara addict (WHAT ?) because I just own I think three or four different mascaras, and most of them are drugstore mascaras. A sleepless night as another, thinking too much and surfing on Sephora, I read about 50 different reviews and comments about this product (aw fuck don’t you have something better to do at 2 a.m bitch) and finally order it.

WHAT BENEFIT SAYS ABOUT THE ROLLER LASH MASCARA :

” It’s a roller for lashes! The eye-opening Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush grabs, separates, lifts and curls…while the instant curve-setting formula holds for 12 hours. Contains provitamin B5 and serin, ingredients known for their lash-conditioning benefits.

  • Ink black, satin finish
  • Water-resistant & easy to remove
  • 87% said it gives long-lasting curl*

* Consumer panel survey on 31 women after 4 weeks

  • #1 best-selling Prestige Curling Mascara in the US* “

Plastic brushes, tiny straight barbs, and curved applicator

Well, that sounds good because, seriously, I have fucking shit eyelashes. They doesn’t have curve, they are straight and not filled. Thank you holy mother nature, you’re so kind with us ! Anyway, just wanted to test this and see what’s happening on my face.

FUCK YEAH I GOT EYELASHES, THANK YOU

The formula is really good, my lashes doesn’t seems to be clumpy with two coats and that’s a realllllyyyyyy good point because I hate clumpy lashes that reminds me my grandma mascara. Love the plastic brush (obviously I only love plastic brushes for the moment), it’s really easy to apply the mascara on the lashes. Don’t know if it’s really curl my lashes, but seems to be better, and no falls throughout the day. Definitely have to try it a little more, but HELL YAY I CAN SAY IT, I LOOOOVE IT 😭💜 Recommend it so much girls, go !

Hope you loved this post. If you have some great mascara plans to share, please leave a comment below and don’t forget to like/subscribe !
