My fav matte liquid lipstick? Review & Swatches on 5 shades of Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte

Today I decided to show some of my favorite matte liquid lipsticks of all times: Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte liquid lipstick.

I currently own 5 dusty shades which are not the easiest thing to find all the brands.

They dry totally matte in a few minutes -not too quickly, not too slow- without enhancing the fine lines or causing dryness on the lips. Actually, non of these shades had ever made my lips looking dry.

Hydra Matte liquid lipstick has a velvet, light consistency and a doe-foot applicator which allows you not to use a huge amount of liquid lipstick while you don’t need it.

All the shades I tried share exactly the same consistency. Their package is also very beautiful, a frosted tube with a gold top, ideal to put it in your vanity.

You can easily wear those without a lipliner as they offer intense coverage but in case you feel the need to use a lipliner, you can pick either a lipliner you already own or one matching lipliner of Gerard Cosmetics’ collection.
