I ordered these lipsticks and lipglosses a while ago and I love them they are so pigmented and last really long on the lips. I am not usually a fan of lipglosses but I love these ones! The reflective gold packaging is also gorgeous and sleek.

I had a slight issue with one of the lipglosses leaking but it didn’t bother me too much but I emailed Gerard Cosmetics customer service to let them know what had happened, I didn’t feel it was necessary to be sent a new one but they sent me one anyway along with a hand written note, pen and in beautiful gift wrap! Their customer service is brilliant and cannot be faulted they are extremely understanding with their customers.

I ordered the lipsticks in the shades Berry Smoothie, 1995 and Buttercup. All of the lipsticks are really pigmented and I like to mix them together sometimes to make my own shade I often mix Berry Smoothie and Buttercup together for my favourite nude. When the lipsticks arrived I thought Buttercup would be too light for me and make me look too pale but I love it for days when I am just going for a really natural look. 1995 is perfect for those of you looking for a Kylie Jenner lip colour and Berry Smoothie is slightly more pink based than 1995 which is slightly more brown. 1995 and Buttercup are both part of the Jaclyn Hill collection.

I ordered the two Jaclyn Hill lipglosses in Rose Hill and Butter Cream again these are really pigmented and last long on the lips and are probably my favorite lip glosses I have ever tried, they are not too sticky and don’t leave a horrible white cast on the lips. Rose Hill is a perfect shade for summer and I love pairing it with Buttercup to brighten it up. Butter cream also is a perfect match to Butter cup if you wanted a matching gloss and also goes well over a brighter shade if you wanted to tone it down slightly. The lipglosses also have a mirror on the side and the lid lights up when you take it off making it so much easier to apply your lip gloss on the go.

Overall I cannot fault these lipsticks or the customer service I received from Gerard Cosmetics and I will be ordering from them again in the near future. The lip products are not too expensive and there’s often deals on or lipstick/gloss bundles which also make it cheaper.
