I have been on the hunt for a Liquid Matte Lipstick for a few months now and have tried around 7 different brands only to find they wear quickly or rub off easily.
After being recommended by an MUA friend i finally ordered two beautiful shades of Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick from Gerard Cosmetics. I was a little dubious at first as they do not have any UK stores but risked the US online purchase. I need not have been worried. For starters their delivery was quick and I had no problems at all!
I purchased two of the matte lipsticks, one in the Shade ‘Serenity’ and other in ‘Cher’. Instantly I was in love.
The Shade above is Serenity.
The shades are so absolutely perfectly spot on to what I had been searching for. The texture is not too thick but not completely moussey. I would say it takes around 3 or 4 minutes to dry and I find it lasts around 4 hours before touch up is required- that’s for someone who drinks a lot. But even then it hardly needs doing. If I hadn’t been sipping on water all day it probably would have last double that. There is no cracking and no flakiness either. It feels soft on the lips and doesn’t dry them out. This shocked me somewhat as all the other good quality brands I had tried had dried my lips after an hour.
The applicator is the perfect size for getting into all those creases and corners and is very soft on the lips.
The smell and taste is simply divine! It kind of reminds of a creamy chocolate.
The product retails for $20 USD which is around £14.
This Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick from Gerard Cosmetics is a must have for ALL makeup bags!
