I did my first ever Gerard cosmetics shopping, a Little over a week ago. And I just got my stuff yesterday. I have to say I had a few oopses with 2 of the products. 1 of the lip glosses came with a dingy/bent doe foot applicator and one of the lipsticks had a glob of something yellow and gross looking on it. (I wiped it off to take these Photos). But Gerard cosmetics was nice enough to send me 2 new products to replace them. So I will wait with the reviews, until I get them. I know Gerard cosmetics does a lot of collaborations with bloggers and youtubers, and I just want to make it clear that I bought these myself and Gerard cosmetics have no idea who I am. So no collabs here.
I can't wait to try everything and see if I think these are as good as everybody seems to think they are. A few first impressions: I was not expecting plastic packaging and wow does that packaging collect fingerprints. 2 products out of 8 were "dingy", not a great statistics. The products don't really smell like anything except for 1 gloss, that smells like oranges? yup, just the one. So right now I'm seeing som inconsistencies within the brand, but wether or not it will be enough to influence my final verdict, has yet to be uncovered.
