Gerard Cosmetics may not be the most loved brand due to certain bad PR moves, oh well. This post has been sitting in my drafts for the longest time. I have swatched their lipsticks - 1995 and Rodeo Drive $19.

The packaging is pretty to look at with the reflective gold bullet. However it doesn't feel like the price you're paying for. It feels pretty ''cheap' as it is very light and plastic-y. Good thing is GC always has some kind of promo code that gives you pretty good discounts.





1995 has a Matte formula which isn't too drying. It is a burnt terracotta shade with a hint of peach. Such neutral shades are great for work.

Rodeo Drive has a Satin finish, even though this feels more like a cream to me. Very moisturising and blends out beautifully. It is a gorgeous mauvey dusty rose. This used to be my everyday lipstick for quite a long time.

    1. Thank you! I have yet to try the 1995 liquid lipstick but I prefer the comfort of the lipsticks :)
