Gerard Cosmetics Swatches & Review!

Gerard Cosmetics Review and Swatches

 

Gerard Cosmetics has been on our radar for a while. The brand is a favorite amongst some of the best YouTube beauty vloggers. Beauties like Jaclyn Hill and ShaaanXO have even created their own Gerard products. We’re so excited to swatch and review a bunch of their products (get ready for much more swatch posts in the near future!). Keep reading for a better look at their lipsticks, glosses, brow powder and more.

Gerard Cosmetics Swatches - Candy Kiss, Butter Cream, Nude, Cocoa Bean

Gerard Cosmetics Swatches - Candy Kiss, Butter Cream, Nude, Cocoa Bean

Clockwise from top left:

Candy Kiss: As often happens with lighter colors, this shade (created by ShaaanXO) goes on a little patchy, but it’s a gorgeous pinky nude. Perfect for fair skin tones. As long as you’re okay with having to work with it a bit, this is a nude that should be in your collection.

Butter Cream: This light pink applies well. With only two coats, you can actually get away with wearing it without a liner or lipstick underneath.

Nude: Holy grail gloss. This gorgeous nude gloss would look amazing with any nude lipstick underneath. Try it with a brownish nude like MAC’s Velvet Teddy or swipe it on top of a paler nude like MAC’s Myth to add a little life to it. PAMP FAVE!
Cocoa Bean: If you’re into brown at all, this is a must-have. It’s the perfect chocolatey brown, and would look stunning on a bunch of different skin tones. It’s a unique color and applies like a dream. It literally looks like there’s chocolate on your lips…and I mean that in the best possible way. PAMP FAVE!
 
Gerard Cosmetics - Rose Hill, Pink Frosting, Raspberry Sherbet, Bahama
Gerard Cosmetics - Rose Hill, Pink Frosting, Raspberry Sherbet, Bahama
Clockwise from top left:
Rose Hill: Jaclyn Hill created this rosy pink for Gerard. It goes on a bit sheerer than I expected, but it’s a stunning color. It will work for many skin tones, and it’s perfect for both day and night. This will be a staple in the summer. PAMP FAVE!
Pink Frosting: This is the sheerest of the bunch. It’s ideal if you want to add some glitter to your look. It’s simply a splash of sparkle.
Raspberry Sherbet: This is a fun neon shade. It goes on slightly purple on my lips, but I imagine it would look pink on others. It’s a great shade for summer, but keep in mind it goes on slightly patchy, so make sure you use a lip liner with it.
Bahama: If you want a bold look, this is perfect. It’s such a fun, unique color, and the pigmentation is crazy. I have to say though, it was extremely patchy – you’re gonna have to work with this one. Try using a lip brush for easier application.
Jaclyn Hill in Gerard Cosmetics' 1995
Gerard Cosmetics - Buttercup, Nude, Rodeo Drive, 1995
Gerard Cosmetics - Buttercup, Nude, Rodeo Drive, 1995
Clockwise from top left:
Buttercup: This is just the most gorgeous pinky nude ever. Love. Everyone needs this in their collection. PAMP FAVE!
Nude: Another winner. This beautiful brownish nude has a slight hint of orange that makes it completely one of a kind. Bonus: it applies extremely well.
Rodeo Drive: These lipsticks are really impressing me! This is the creamiest lipstick ever! It applies so easily, is a stunning color, works for so many skin tones…I could go on and on. PAMP FAVE!
1995: This cult classic, by Jaclyn Hill, really captures the ’90s brown lipstick trend. It’s a modern take on a classic, and gets it 100% right. Leave it to Jaclyn to create the coolest lipstick!
Gerard Cosmetics - French Toast, Fairy Godmother, Tequila Sunrise, Fire Engine
Gerard Cosmetics - French Toast, Fairy Godmother, Tequila Sunrise, Fire Engine
Clockwise from top left:
French Toast: This shade is very creamy and wearable, but is pretty similar to 1995. You definitely don’t need both shades, so just see which one works better on your skin tone.
Fairy Godmother: If you’re into bright, cotton candy pinks, this is a pretty summer shade. Keep in mind that it’s pretty patchy; use with a lip liner underneath.
Tequila Sunrise: Coral lovers, definitely pick up this cult classic. It’s so bright, fun and absolutely perfect for warm nights. PAMP FAVE!
Fire Engine: This classic red goes on so creamy and easily, which is rare for such a bold color. My only wish, if it makes sense, is that it was a bit more vivid. I feel like it doesn’t pack the punch some reds have.
