Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Lipsticks | Swatches & Review ♥

Top to Bottom: Ecstasy, Aphrodite, West Coast and Serenity
Hi guys! I recently got these gorgeous Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte lipsticks from Beauty Bay. I bought two last month and I loved them so much I went and bought two more!

I thought I'd do a quick little review and some swatches of the colours I got!


These matte lipsticks are so amazing! They are £9.50 each which does seem like a lot, but for the quality they are definitely worth it!

They are so pigmented and last all day. To give you an idea of how long they last, I would apply it at about 8am and by 6pm it's still going strong! It's still pigmented and lovely looking, doesn't go patchy.


Here are some swatches of the 4 colours I bought, so you can see how gorgeous they are!

Top to Bottom: Ecstasy, Aphrodite, West Coast and Serenity
These Hydra Matte lipsticks are really amazing and there are more beautiful colours to choose from.

Have you tried any of these Hydra Matte lipsticks by Gerard Cosmetics? What's your fave matte lipstick?? I'd love to know!

Thanks for reading,

  2. I love Gerard Cosmetics! I have two Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks in Serenity and Cher! The Ecstasy swatch looks stunning but I'm worried that bright purple might not look good on me so I'm thinking of going for the shade 'Invasion' next time which is like ecstasy but has more of a grey undertone! I love these, you're so right, they last me all day too! I've never had another liquid lipstick like it! Great post x

    1. Cher is such a lovely colour - I nearly bought it haha. Ecstasy isn't that bright once it's on your lips, but it is a bit brighter than Invasion lol. Invasion is a gorgeous colour! :) x

  17. These really do sound (and LOOK - such gorgeous packaging haha) impressive. I love how you've mentioned the texture not being patchy as well, that's so important when it comes to liquid lipsticks :)

  24. I haven't tried Gerard Cosmetics before, I don't believe that we have this brand here. These shades are amazing, my favourite is Aphrodite and my second favourite is Ecstasy, both lovely shades!
