GERARD COSMETICS – HYDRA MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK – Mile High

Mile High

This is an amazingly easy to apply, long-lasting, creamy liquid lipstick!

This lipstick, has the ultimate staying power – giving a vivid lip mocha blush colour for at least 6 hours.

This lipstick is one of the easiest I’ve ever had to apply, and with just one dip it provides great coverage –  and it doesn’t smudge your already applied part causing it to go patchy! It lasted three re-coats before it got clumpy and started to flake. It can withstand eating and drinking to with only minimal touch up – I was able to devour a three course meal and it still looked presentable!

Bottom Line: Gerard Cosmetics have just created the holy grail of liquid lipsticks! Thoroughly worth the higher price due to the amazing quality and easibility of applying with the built in wand!

Price: £11 @ BeautyBay.com

Gerard Cosmetics – Slay All Day Setting Spray – Jasmine

FullSizeRender

The one spray to rule them all! 

I’ve seen these sprays all over Instagram, and finally took the plunge after having such a good experience with their liquid lipsticks!

Well, I am so glad I did! I’ve been using Urban Decay’s Chill setting spray for years now, and I’m afraid that its now looking sad on my shelf as I’ve been using this constantly!

The smell is amazing, fresh and floral – but if Jasmine isn’t something you’d like – no worries! They’ve got nine other fragrances including coconut, peach, watermelon and green tea! Talk about plenty of choices! The scent lasts a long time, which can be off putting for some, but for me I love it.

This spray is so versatile as you can spray it before applying your makeup as a primer, and then spraying after your makeup is applied to set it all. The spray makes my makeup look freshly applied for my entire 10hr shifts, controlling any oil that could appear.

Bottom Line: Gerard Cosmetics have just created the best selection of setting sprays that really make you Slay All Day!

Price: £10 for the Mini 30ml, £14 for the full size 100ml @ BeautyBay.com

May 2017 – Favourite Products!

Hi Guys,

Here are my favourite products from the last month, the ones that truly stole my heart!

IMG_7982

1)  Anastasia Beverly Hills – Cream Contour Kit in Fair. £39 @ BeautyBay.com
This kit has now become a staple in my makeup bag! The creamy formula makes application a breeze and allows you to blend a lot more than powdered contour kits. I especially like to add my Farsali Rose Gold elixir in to the mix to achieve a dewy finish or to inject more moisture for dried out skin! Full review of this kit is here!

2) Farsali – Rose Gold Elixir. £55 @ BeautyBay.com
Wow! This beauty oil is insane! It’s so hydrating and you can use it in a plethora of ways, which are outlines in my review of it here! It smells divine – its a mix of Rosehip oil, Lemongrass and Orange peel – creating a beautiful citrus scent. These extracts help deliver numerous vitamins that can hydrate your skin whereas the Rosehip oils can help tackle hyper-pigmentation.

3) OFRA – Long Lasting Lipstick in Bel Air. £11 @ BeautyBay.com
This lipstick shade has become a quick favourite. It’s a light pale pink nude that suits every look! Its formula is creamy and dries completely matte. It lasts a few hours and topping up doesn’t cause it to go cakey or flake! The packaging is sleek, but it rubs off awfully easy.

4) Gerard Cosmetics – Slay all Day in Jasmine. £14.50 for Full size, £10 for Mini @ BeautyBay.com
This is my new staple for setting spray. It smells delicious – reminds me so much of my Jasmine iced tea! You can use it before your makeup as a primer and then afterwards as a setting spray. It really has kept my makeup looking freshly applied!

Stay tuned for my June favourites at the end of the month! ❤

1)  Anastasia Beverly Hills – Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette. £41 @ BeautyBay.com
This is an unbelievable palette. The colours are rich, highly pigmented and silky to the touch! Ultimate blend-ability, which means you can create soft ‘pretty-in-pink’ looks or fierce, valentine-esque smokey eyes.! Full review of this palette is here!

2) Gerard Cosmetics – Metal Matte Liquid Lipstick in Dreamweaver£11 @ BeautyBay.com
This lipstick has an amazing metallic finish, that isn’t flaky or stays tacky – it dries pretty much instantly and doesn’t transfer. This items versatility is unbelievable, you can use it as an eye shadow, or even as an eyeliner, to add a hint of rose gold to your desired eye look. It is so versatile!

3) Gerard Cosmetics – Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Serenity. £11 @ BeautyBay.com
This lipstick is one of the easiest I’ve ever had to apply, and with just one dip it provides great coverage –  and it doesn’t smudge your already applied part causing it to go patchy!
