Since I'm on a bright-lipstick kick lately (actually, always), I thought I would feature another lipstick brand I can't get enough of.
It's sort of an under-the-radar brand that got its start on Instagram, and now they're kind of having a moment. I feel like I'm seeing this brand everywhere.
It's called Gerard Cosmetics.
The Brow Bar To Go is a pretty hot little item for them, as is their custom double-highlighter "power couple" . . .
. . . but I'm rather partial to their wide range of lipstick products and colors. They've got a great line of liquid lipsticks, which you already know I'm a big fan of, but it's their cream lipsticks I've been crushing on lately.
These three beauties found their way into my mailbox (and then onto my face and into my heart) the other day.
They're super vivid, highly saturated, and go on beautifully, but also, I think a quick round of applause for gorgeous packaging is in order. They are quite photogenic, yes?
Of course, I had to start with the brightest of them all...
I was completely beat when I got home, and I felt like I looked like the walking dead, but a sucker-punch of color to the old kisser and suddenly my face looks alive again.
Mai Tai is a really orange-y red, so I'd caution you to make sure your teeth are nice and white when you wear this because orange undertones can make your smile go from Crest-commercial to meth-commercial status real quick.
Other than that, I think this color is really fresh and fun.
