After I'd bought and loved one of Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Lipsticks in the shade Serenity, I decided to try a few more things out from the brand, plus I was totally swayed by the fact that I had a 40% off discount code so it seemed too good a deal to pass up! The code I used was GC40, just in case anyone was interested as it might still work.

The Hydra Matte lipsticks are Gerard Cosmetics addition to the Liquid Lipstick trend, and they are pretty impressive! They are opaque and feel creamy to apply and then they dry down to a lovely matte texture. They do stay a little tacky at first but that does go away after about five minutes, so just be careful not to rub your lips together or you might ruin it a little. They are really long lasting, as you'd expect from a liquid lipstick. Serenity is a lovely brown toned pink and Ballet Slipper is a pretty peachy pink and is a new shade to the Hydra Matte collection. I will say though that Ballet Slipper isn't quite as opaque as Serenity and I had to use a little more product to get it totally streak free, 

I also got two of the lipsticks in the shades Buttercup and Fairy Godmother. Buttercup is the perfect beige nude colour which actually looks really similar to YSL Beige Tribute lipstick! Fairy Godmother is a beautiful powder pink shade which looks a little deeper in colour in the bullet than it does once applied. The lipsticks themselves feel lovely and creamy, although they do apply quite sheer and it takes me a while to build up the colour to how I would like it, which I don't find ideal but I love the shades.

I really wish I'd tried a couple of the lip glosses too as I've heard lots about them!
