In Detail Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick Ecstasy Review, Swatches
The shade Ecstasy is a light grey tinged purple shade with cooler undertones. I personally felt that after its application, the shade turns a little deeper.
The formula is really amazing and the application is smooth with no transferring. But it may feel sticky until it dries completely. So let the shade dry for 30-40 seconds and it will set it to matte texture. I would advise to moisturize your lips before its application in order to avoid unwanted creasing. These lip shade really stays on lips for long without regular touchups and they does not come off easily. You need to use a makeup remover or baby oil to get them off.
It feels very light on lips. I am in love with its elegant packaging. However not very happy with the quantity of this product which is very less as compared to other brands’ liquid lipsticks.
One thing I adore about these liquid lipsticks is that once you have applied them you don’t have to worry about touching up the shade and stays for a long time. The colour is very unique. You will hardly find any dupe of this shade. It’s a nice shade for everyday look. Also can be use for formal meetings or day functions. Girls who like light colour lip shades would really be happy with the shade.
The best part is that these lipsticks are cruelty-free.
