I will be reviewing the Gerard Cosmetics Star Powder – Audrey today. I have three variants from this range. Everybody desires that beautifully glowing skin in pictures and, followed by that, one loves the compliments that people pile up on those pictures. This is true for me too. Some women are blessed with a clear, glowing skin but people like me need a little help. Not that I mind because this gives me the excuse to hunt down new illuminators and highlighters. In my search for great highlighters for tanned Indian skin tones, I came across these beauties from an American brand called Gerard Cosmetics. Gerard Cosmetics recently came out with these gorgeous highlighters named after old Hollywood beauties: Marilyn, Lucy, and Audrey. I will be reviewing Audrey today. Read on to find out more on how it fared on me.
Whether you’re going to a breakfast at Tiffany’s or taking a Roman Holiday this will be the highlight for you. Inspired by one of the world’s most celebrated Hollywood icons, this Star Powder will make you feel your prettiest. Audrey is a warm champagne gold that is reflective and high shine. Build it up for an intense glow or dust it lightly on your cheekbones for a subtle sheen. Pure pigment and an ultra smooth and blendable formula will make this your go-to highlight.
My Experience with Gerard Cosmetics Audrey Star Powder:
This range is called the ‘Star Powders’ and these powders come in a beautiful gold compact packaging with a mirror (great for on-the-go) and a clear plastic sort of a protective lid to protect your powder from clumsy fingers (like mine) which tend to drop things quite often. However, if you ask me to comment on how much the lid protects the powder, I will say it doesn’t necessarily because my precious Audrey highlighter came shattered in its packaging. When I opened the bubble wrap and cute black tissue paper, my heart was in my throat because all the powder had spilt out of the compact case since it was broken.
Audrey is described as a warm champagne gold highlight and you guessed it! It was named for Audrey Hepburn and it looks beautiful on all skin tones. On me, since I am dark, Lucy is better as it is a beautiful and natural-looking highlight for my cheeks. The shimmer can be seen so I wouldn’t mind using these to a party rather than every day. I feel we Indians are a little too conservative with our makeup to want to go all the way with a highlighted face.
I love Audrey’s soft gold champagne color that I use as, yes, an eye shadow too. The texture is super soft and buttery. It goes on so smoothly and you need just a wee bit to get that gorgeous glow. I love the fact that these powders can be used as eye shadows or body shimmers too and of course as a highlighter for the high points of your face. The product, overall, is very versatile and Audrey is the most versatile out of all the Star Powders.
Pros of Gerard Cosmetics Audrey Star Powder:
• Shade flatters all skin tones
• Texture is easy to blend
• No visible glitter
• Packaging is gorgeous and classy
• Quantity is good
• Versatile product
Cons of Gerard Cosmetics Audrey Star Powder:
• Clear plastic lid doesn’t actually protect the powder from breaking
(Only because the protective plastic lid is not actually protective)
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Gerard Cosmetics Audrey Star Powder?
Definitely! But I can’t repurchase these in the immediate future only because these will last forever. My next purchase will be their lipsticks as I saw some really good reviews on IMBB.
