Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick Review

      Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick

      There has always been hype around Gerard Cosmetics liquid lipsticks in the beauty industry, but I never really knew why. I thought, tons of beauty companies are coming out with liquid lipsticks, so what could be so special about these?

      Well, I now understand what the hype is all about.

      These Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks are incredibly long wearing, but moisturizing at the same time. Most liquid lipsticks end up on either end of the spectrum – the Colourpop (reviewed here) are very pigmented but a bit too drying, the Maybelline (reviewed here) are not quite as intensely pigmented but are moisturizing. It’s like they’d always have to sacrifice one thing for the other. So it’s amazing how these liquid lipsticks from Gerard Cosmetics can deliver both!

      APSU Varanasi Review

      I’ve recently been testing out a few different body care brands, but one brand in particular that I’ve been loving the most is APSU.

      APSU is an Australian-owned luxury spa brand, offering a selection of luxury body products formulated using the highest quality ingredients possible. All of their products are paraben, SLS and SLES free.

      Combining influences from the East and West, APSU’s boutique products offer a unique experience in traditional bathing rituals. Having developed two exquisite product collections, the Funaya and Varanasi ranges, APSU is creating the ultimate in luxury body products.

      APSU’s PR kindly provided me three products from the Varanasi range that “delivers Eastern culture in a Western spa style, drawing from Hindu culture and inspired by the golden goddess Annapurna, Queen of Varanasi.”

      The hero ingredient of the Varanasi range is 24 carat gold leaf, which has been crafted to nourish the body, mind and spirit through this range of luxury products.

      Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Collection

      The beauty world went crazy went Kat (Kat Von D) and Jerrod (Too Faced) announced they were joining forces and coming out with a collection as both of their brands are very popular and well loved. So I was very excited to be able to grab the palette on the day it was released last month.

      After a whole month of playing around with these palettes, I’m ready to finally share my thoughts on them.
