Owning all MAC Lipsticks is every girl’s dream but the price of each product makes it difficult to buy even a set of lipsticks. The only alternative is to look for similar products from other companies but until now, nothing even came close to the quality and formula of the MAC Lipsticks. I have made several researches and saw YouTubers like Jaclyn Hill and CarliByBel rave about this particular brand of lip products and how affordable and great they are quality wise. So I ordered several of their lippies from the Gerard Cosmetics site. But before I start to hoard all the colors I decided to test their quality and longevity to see if they’re worth the $$. They also provide free shipping with tracking which is great. And it took nearly 4-5 weeks for the package to reach me. They came in securely and each lipstick was carefully wrapped with a thank you note.

So I picked up 3 Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks and 1 Gerard Cosmetics lip gloss from left to right are Berry Smoothie, Fire Engine, 1995 & Plum Crazy. The packaging looks super pretty and luxurious. The lipsticks are very creamy and glide on the lips beautifully. Even though they are creamy they look more like matte lipsticks when you put them on yet they are not drying. The Gerard Cosmetics lip glosses are more like liquid lipsticks they are so pigmented and lasts a great amount of time before you have to reapply. I am very happy with the colors and the product quality. I know now why these are raved so much and I am very happy I finally picked them up.

Berry Smoothie is a beautiful muted mauvy-brown which is a perfect everyday color. It is a close dupe for MAC Lipstick in Fastplay.

1995 as the name suggests is a 90s color which is reddish brown and it looks different on different skin tones. One me it looks like a darker nude and on people with paler skin tones it will look a lot darker. It is an almost dupe for MAC Lipstick in Taupe & Velvet Teddy.

Fire Engine is a stunning matte red which just brightens up my complexion like no other. I could rock this over any other lip color if I have to. This lipstick and no base makeup with only winged eyeliner and mascara I am good to go. It is an affordable dupe for MAC Lipstick in Ruby Woo.

Plum Crazy lip gloss is unlike most lip glosses out there they are so pigmented and the formula is almost like Too Faced Melted Lipstick. And it is a pretty close dupe for MAC Plum Lipliner but in gloss form.

The Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks usually retails for 19$ and the Gerard Cosmetics lip gloss for 24$ each and using some coupon codes I got a great deal. And you can get them for 9$ each which is awesome. I’ll leave them down below.

Hope you all found this post useful. See you in my next post. Until then stay beautiful. :heart:
