Gerard Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick

It took me a while to jump on the craze of the liquid lipstick bandwagon but now I'm on it, I'm hooked! Looking through the millions of brands which produce liquid lipsticks it was hard to pick out which one I wanted until I came across Gerard Cosmetics' matte iced mocha.
I'd never actually tried anything from Gerard Cosmetics before so, I was intrigued as to whether this was going to be a good purchase or not at £9.50. The packaging is beautiful with the frosted glass alongside the gold detailing it leaves you feeling as if you'd just bought a £40 liquid lipstick.The delivery from Beauty Bay was super fast which was brilliant as I was extremely excited to open up my parcel to then instantly swatch the liquid lipstick onto the back of my hand. 

I fell in love! Iced mocha is very similar to MAC's stone lipstick which was sadly sitting on my wishlist for ridiculously ages. If you're unfamiliar with stone it's a cool toned nude with grey undertones; it looks incredible on paler complexions.
When applied onto the lips it is very smooth, not sticky nor drying whilst leaving a pure matte finish on your lips, it looks incredibly gorgeous! I felt like the iced mocha queen. Considering it's matte and not drying on the lips this is a huge positive about this liquid lipstick compared to others. Not only is the consistency amazing but when eating and drinking throughout the day it was unstoppable; the lipstick only began to show signs of wear after 4-5 hours in the middle of my lips. When it reached the 6 and a half hours stage it was near enough the end of the lipstick's longevity test.

Overall I'm so pleased with this Gerard Cosmetics' liquid lipstick and I hopefully will pick some more up in the future. Have you tried this one and what's your favourite liquid lipstick?
 Thanks for reading.
