Haul: Gerard Cosmetics


In early March I came across a promotion for Gerard Cosmetics which included 2 lip glosses for $20 since I've been wanting to try these products for a while I decided to give their products a try. While I was on the site I checked out the sale section and there was a lipstick and lip gloss combo which was also $20. So I thought perfect... 4 lip products for $40 plus free shipping. In Australian dollars it cost approximately $54. 




The colours I bought were;

1. Lipstick in Nude

2. Lip glosses in Nude (light pink nude), Deduction (dark and vampy) and Salmon (peachy orange) 


My order came in less then 2 weeks, which was amazing. I couldn't believe how quick it came. However when I received my order I noticed something odd about the lip gloss in Seduction. It looked almost as if the tube was half empty. So I sent an email about my concerns and they responded to me within a day. And this was their response.

"Hi love,
We are so sorry this has happened :( Please provide me with your order number so I can send out a new lipgloss to you. Also please let me know what color lipgloss that is.
Thank you for your patience!
Alexis"

A few days later I got a confirmation stating that a new one was on its way. This order took a little longer to arrive but nonetheless it came. And it was as pretty as a picture. When I opened it I was amazed the way it came. One top of that it came with a personalised note and a pen. Will never say no to a pen especially one this cute looking. If this isn't customer service I don't know what is.


So if you are wanting to give these products a try I would HIGHLY recommend this company. Big thumbs up!!!!!

Check out their facebook site as well because they usually have promotions going on.

Review: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Image: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Claims: "Extremely fast drying top coat. Protects your nail polish against chipping"

How long would you expect a "quick dry" top coat to dry, 60 seconds maybe 2 minutes? Well don't expect too much from this top coat. Every time I've used this top coat I've had problems with my nail polish smudging or sheet lines when I wake up. 

The top coat does dry fairly quickly however the nail polish remains soft and smudges if your not careful. I tried it a few times but the last time I tried it I left it for an hour and a half to fully set and without doing anything that would ruin the polish before going to sleep but when I woke up my nail polish had sheet marks. All I can say is disappointing. 

Yes it is a cheap product but from essence I expected a lot better. I've used a few essence products but this was the WORST. 

In terms of protection from chipping I don't believe it makes much of a different. My test for this was rimm…

Review: UBU Shady Lady Eyeshadow Brush (No. 30)

Claim: "All eyes on you baby. Love your lids with this short synthetic bristle brush perfectly molded to your eye shape."

If you want a brush to apply eyeshadow all over the lid then this is NOT the brush for that. 

There are a few reasons why it's a bad all over the eye lid brush. 
1) Bristles are not flexible 
2) Bristles are too firm 
3) Bristles from the base are fairly thick but as it tapers to the top it becomes too thin therefore not enough eyeshadow can get onto the brush to actually be applied smoothly all over the lid. 

However, this brush is really good for applying eyeshadow on the lower lash line. So if your looking to set your eyeliner with eyeshadow this is a handy tool. It is the right amount of thickness and firmness to apply eyeshadow on the lash line. 

Cons:
- Doesn't do what it claims

Pros:
- Great for lower lash line
- Cheap 
- PURPLE

Rating: 2.5 

Where and how much: K-mart - $6.00
