Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Serenity Review

This has been on my wishlist for sometime after seeing it through YouTube land. It looked like the perfect nude lipstick for me and I'd heard good good things about this formulation of liquid lipstick. As an aside...this is my 200th blog post - what better way to celebrate than finding my holy grail of liquid lipsticks...

I was so pleased to find out that the product more than lived up to my expectations. After hating most of the liquid lipsticks I had previously tried due to dry, flaky formulas, I was glad to love this formulation!

Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick Formulation

It's a medium consistency, feeling more like a stain than a thick liquid lipstick. In fact, it felt very much like my much beloved Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Lacque lip product, except it dries! I found it applies really easily.

The product also dries really quickly, no waiting around with parted lips, scared to put them together in case you ruin the good work! And once dry, it doesn't flake, crack or crumble. It feels flexible, moving with your lips as you talk, eat, drink etc.

Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Serenity

I chose the shade Serenity as a pink based nude with just a hint of brown to keep it looking natural. The pigmentation of the lipstick is intense and as it comes in a frosted package, actually caught me by surprise. It's not a natural nude but more of a natural colour...if that makes sense?

It's a lip colour that people notice you're wearing...but that doesn't stand out. It's actually beautiful in life, warming up my face and matching wonderfully with a smokey eye look. It doesn't fight for attention...but does command it. 

All in all, I am IN LOVE with this liquid lipstick. The lasting power, shade and formulation are all winners for me and I'll definitely be going back to Gerard Cosmetics for all my liquid lipstick needs in the future. 

What are your favourite liquid lipsticks?

Have a beautiful day, inside and out
