The blogosphere has been all abuzz about the new lipsticks that Gerard Cosmetics recently launched, and I thought that I would give you my take on them.
I have two perfectly on trend shades that should appeal to a great many lipstick fans: one is a peachy nude and the other a peachy coral. They both offer exceptional pigmentation and full opaque coverage in a single pass. Nude and Tequila Sunrise are long-wearing mattes that are a touch heavier and a bit more dry than regular lipstick formulas, but akin to the texture of many of the mattes on the market today. I find them to be comfortable on the lips but I do feel their presence. The cold winter weather has prompted me to apply a lip balm first since my lips have been dry lately and I need a bit more emollience, and if you have dry lips you will likely want to apply a balm first as well.
Nude is described by Gerard Cosmetics as, "our famous nude lip gloss in lipstick form. Buttery, full coverage and a stunning neutral hue that can be mixed with any lip color to create the perfect lip color."
I would describe Nude as a mid-tone warm peachy nude matte lipstick.
You will note that neither shade is a flat matte, but instead has a slight sheen.
