REVIEW & SWATCHES: Gerard Cosmetics Lipsticks

ITEM: Gerard Cosmetics Lipsticks
RRP: $19USD + shipping (However there are always discount codes available for packages and/or free shipping). 

There is overwhelming social media attention channeled into the Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks and I decided that it would be good to do a review and swatches since I had so many of the colours (both new and old). I don't have every single colour, but I feel that I have enough colours and have tested them out enough to be able to write a meaningful review.

TOP 5: Bronzers

My Top5 Foundations Post and Top5 Nude Lips Post (both links provided) were both very popular, so I have decided to do my next instalment of this series. This one will be my TOP 5 Bronzers.

If you know me, I am obsessed with bronzers. If I could try every bronzer under the sun I would - and I believe that I will venture to do that (I just need unlimited monetary funds). Nonetheless, I have decided to narrow down the ones I have to my top5. I have tried my share of bronzers, but have not tried every single popular one so this list is prone to change over time. However these are my favourites for the time being.

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit

ITEM: Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit

Thanks to the popular demand of my review on the ABH powder contours (link is HERE) and the ABH liquid lipsticks (link is HERE), I found that the Cream Contour Kit was inevitable.

After testing this extremely popular product - the Anastasia Cream Contour Kit, I have decided to do a complete review and swatches of it for everyone. I only purchased the Medium Kit because that is what I thought would be my shade. However, there is also a Light Kit and a Deep Kit. They are also in the process of releasing a Fair Kit but have yet to do so.

For my fellow Aussies out there, this is available on the Anastasia Beverly Hills website (as linked above) - which ships internationally. For others, Macy's also stock this product. If you shop through Ebates (link is here) you can also get cashback on your purchase (making the product even cheaper than through the direct website)!

So now that we have gone through all the logistical things, we will jump straight into the review and swatches!
