Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Skinny Dip

I wanted to share this absolutely gorgeous shade of liquid lipstick. It is one of the Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks (£11.50) and is in the shade ‘Skinny Dip’. I don’t know exactly how to describe the shade, it’s a nude that leans towards pink and brown but I feel like there’s a hint of mauve too. Whatever it is, I think it’s one of my favourite shades!

The formula of these is really nice. It’s not at all drying for a liquid lipstick. The application is lovely; it’s creamy and opaque and you can do your entire lips with one dip. It takes a few minutes to dry down to a matte finish. When it does it gives a velvety, plush appearance and I find it doesn’t enhance the lines on my lips as much as some other liquid lipsticks. It’s not completely faultless, I have had a few incidences where it’s broken apart slightly or formed that weird white line around the inside of your lips, but this isn’t the norm and is probably caused by me not exfoliating my lips beforehand or eating something! So I wouldn’t let that put you off and I say definitely give them a go if you love the matte lip look. It is a very nice formula and not too expensive. The frosted glass packaging is also a nice touch. 😉

What do you think of the colour? If you have any questions on the formula, please feel free to ask me in the comments!
