Gerard Cosmetics | Haul + Swatches

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with the girls at Gerard Cosmetics, and first let me just say that they are one of the most kind, generous, and social-savvy group of women I've met!

I received a goodie bag loaded with lipstick, gloss, illuminators, teeth whitening products, and their brow bar -- Can you say "makeup-gasm"?  I mean, seriously, I was over the moon to open such a beautiful box of products.  Their packaging is on point: personalized, shiny, and yet simple.  Christmas definitely came in July this year!

What I love about these lipsticks is that they are all wearable -- Gerard Cosmetics has a couple fun, eccentric shades, but the majority are gorgeous shades that suit a variety of skin tones.  My favorite is Rodeo Drive -- a beautiful, mid-tone, rosy pink.

Rodeo Drive (left) + 1995 (right): Rodeo Drive is much more pink-toned and 1995 has more of a brick undertone (slightly similar to Mac's Paramount lipstick).

Gerard Cosmetics has 2 shades of their Star Powder -- Marilyn is better suited for my skin and gives a gorgeous, golden glow to the skin.

The BB Plus Illumination Creme was what I was most excited to try -- I can't even explain how beautiful this is!  It blends flawlessly into the skin and doesn't leave any color -- It just leaves the most even, glowing base.  I plan to use it for highlighting the cheekbones, but it will also be gorgeous mixed with a foundation for a summer glow.  I'm excited to mix with my Cover FX Custom Cover Drops for a glowing, even complexion!  Stay tuned for pics...
