After seeing some positive reviews on Youtube and also reading positive reviews on IMBB, I decided to go ahead and buy some lipsticks from Gerard cosmetics. Today I am reviewing a Gerard Cosmetics lipstick in the shade French Toast. Read on to find out more about this shade.
$19 but I got it at a discounted price.
Decadent, warm with a rich delicious undertone. This neutral hue will flatter all skin tones. We packed this lipstick with pigment for a smooth and buttery application that will remind you of our favorite breakfast food!.
My experience with Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick – French Toast:
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a chubby little golden bullet which looks a little like a MAC lipstick. The tube has Gerard Cosmetics written over it and has the shade sticker at the bottom. The cap clicks shut. The golden packaging looks classy. But the reflective packaging also picks up a lot of fingerprints which I don’t like.
Shade / Pigmentation: French Toast is a beautiful light brown shade. This is a lovely earthy toned lipstick which will look good on most skintones. It might even be the perfect MLBB for some of you.
The lipstick is fairly pigmented and one swipe is enough to cover the lips.
Texture / Finish:
The lipstick has a creamy texture and applies smoothly on the lips. It does not tug at the lips at all during application. The lipstick feels crème when you apply it but it settles down to a semi-matte finish with a nice sheen. I would not call the lipstick hydrating; but it does not dry out your lips either. There does not seem a need to apply a lip balm prior to the application.
This is not a transfer proof lipstick and transfers easily on cups and glasses. Unfortunately, the lipstick disappeared on me within 3 hrs. Since, this is a light shade, it does not leave any tint behind. Personally, I am fine to reapply my lipsticks whenever the need arises.
To summarize, this is a beautiful everyday wear lipstick with a decent formula. If you do not mind the low staying power, you can definitely try this shade. However, at the original price of 19 dollars, it seems a bit pricey.
Pros of Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick – French Toast:
• Beautiful nude shade
• Glides smoothly on lips
• Does not feel drying on the lips
• Decent pigmentation
• Classy packaging
• Very affordable
Cons of Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick – French Toast:
• Transfers a lot
