Gerard Cosmetics - Lipstick

On this sunny sunday I've got some new lippies for you in 4 very different, but pretty colors!

The boxes are the same like the Hydra Mattes, pretty!
The packaging of the lipstick is completely gold with the logo. It's made of a very light plastic. Don't you think these look a bit like bullets? - It gives a whole new meaning to the word 'lipstick bullet'! 

The colors.
I got four different shades: 1995, Berry Smoothie, Dragon Berry and Cherry Cordial.

1995 is an incredible pretty color. It's a brown-peach kind of color with a matte finish and it's my favorite of all four. It's a 'my lips but better' in a heavier version, a 90s version. This is the most hyped Gerard Cosmetics lipstick and it is definitely worth the hype. This is a non-wine color that I will actually wear.

Berry Smoothie has a cream finish and it's kind of a pink version of 1995. It applies very smooth because of the creamy texture and I really like this color too.

The next one is also a 'berry', Dragon Berry. When I ordered it, the lipstick wasn't swatched on the website yet, I actually thought it would be more pink, more of a 'Tom Ford Plum Lush". But it turned out to be a purple-pink tone, I like it, but it's something that I need to get used to. A very special color. This one has a satin finish.

The last one is Cherry Cordial, a berry matte. (Couldn't help it, sorry.) I expected this one to be my favorite, but I like the other shades better. This one doesn't cover as well as the other ones, 1 layer is enough for the others, this one needs two. Cherry Cordial does last longer than the others because it stains the lips. The mattes are more demi-matte, or even three-quarter-matte: less matte than an Inglot matte, matter than the Urban Decay mattes. They also don't feel dry.

The packaging is pretty, but very light. The lipsticks are creamy and pigmented. What I like the most - and why I might be purchasing some again - are the colors. The shades are so original. I can see myself getting Rodeo Drive too. YouTubers like Mannymua often have discount codes (check the box below the video) and Gerard Cosmetics also often does promotions like 4 lipsticks for $36 for example. 

What do you think? What's your favorite?
