Gerard Cosmetics Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss in Nude, Madison Avenue, Plum Crazy and Cocoa Bean Review & Swatches

If there's one thing about blogging, you definitely learn about companies you may have never heard about otherwise. I learned about Gerard Cosmetics last year, by watching some beauty vloggers on YouTube. Gerard Cosmetics are mainly known for their lip products & highlighters. I would see swatches of their products and they would be so beautiful. So I placed two separate orders (caught sales) the end of last year. I'll be doing separate posts for each type of product I purchased. Today I'll be reviewing their Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss. Let me tell you what is so unique about them! On the back of each is a MIRROR! ALSO, the base of the applicator wand LIGHTS UP! How cool is that? I really like those features. What's also fabulous is the formula! They apply really well and will make your lips look very smooth! No streaking you guys! They're very creamy! They have a little more stick than the Anastasia Beverly Hills lip glosses I reviewed yesterday, but by no means are they super sticky or tacky like other brands. I really like these. The only negative is they have a plastic package scent. But again, this didn't interfere with me wearing them. The ABH (Anastasia Beverly Hills) & LipKitByKylie frosted cake scents have really spoiled me. LOL Despite those two things, I'll definitely be buying more of these lip glosses. Kudos to Gerard Cosmetics for having a LIP GLOSS COLOR CHART (with the colors actually applied to lips) on their website, so you can see how each color looks (click HERE and scroll all the way down). I wish other companies did that! I purchased everything below with my own money (this is not sponsored) and as always just wanted to share my thoughts with you.

Each Gerard Cosmetic Color Your Smile Lip Gloss has a MIRROR and LIGHTS UP (at the base)!
They remind me of light-sabers in the Star Wars movies >.<

Those look like gorgeous shades! Also totally love the packaging!!

Lorena said...

Oh yes, those lighting packaging on glosses are the best ! They come in sooo handy !
While I have not tried Gerard, two years ago we were in touch with the Chinese company that makes these and the products I tried were amazing, the glosses were superb ! But the led light battery did not stand up to par :(

It's shame about the plastic packaging scent but the shades you got are very pretty Kim. The wear sounds great and the packaging is nice looking too.

Cee said...

Years ago I had a gloss from Avon that was similar - it had a mirror on the side and a light up applicator. I didn't like the gloss itself much but the packaging was brilliant! I've never heard of Gerard Cosmetics but I'm so glad to have gotten an introduction from you today, Kim, because these lip colours look stunning. I can't wait to try them myself!

Courtney Williamson said...

Plum crazy is such a pretty shade! Although the pinks really suit you. I'm not a fan of gloss in general, but if I am they're generally the ones that give you a nice wash of colour, which these seem to do pretty well.

You're absolutely right Kim, I have learnt so much from Vloggers actually and some bloggers of new brands. That's why I love reviews, I never tire of them, especially when it's of a brand that I've not tried before. These colours look nice, and of course I love the one with my name, haha. How cool about the LED concept. <3 Happy mid-week!

I back away from this company when I heard the co-owner and some male youtuber made fun of a customer youtuber saying she is ugly she talk about their lip product and she was positive about it. So this company left me in sour note not to consider! Because beauty is not everything in this world. It happen on snapchat around Spring of last year and it was all over the media they try to justified it by stating it was a joke unfortunately on someone expense.The shades look great but I will never buy from them. Here is the link of the victim. (I feel you should know as well) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROMtp1Xv4TA I thought you might want to know.

All these colors look beautiful on you Kim!! i know I've said that about the last two posts you did, but you've really chosen some great lip colors!! I haven't tried these yet either, but I hear nothing but good things about this company! I'm excited to see what else you ordered!

Lilli said...

Kim, that plum crazy and cocoa bean color looks so good on you! I love when anything lights up, makes for a good selfie too huh? :)


Natalia | Fashioned by Love said...

The plum looks so good! And what a bunch of features for a tiny little lipgloss. :D

Emmylou MW said...

You're on a roll with these glosses, Kim:) And I read that comment above that Jackie made....that's just too unfortunate:(

Ela BellaWorld said...

Each lip gloss has a mirror, how cool is that! I am not really a lip gloss person, some of them really feel sticky on the lips, good to know that these ones don't feel really feel that way. First and second shade look similar on the lips. My favourite is the third one, it is a gorgeous shade!


Nerline Germain said...

Having the mirror is cool, indeed. That's a good enough reason for me to buy it. I love all the colors on you, girl! It is hard for me to just pick one.

Pilar said...

I really Plum Crazy and Madison Avenue! All the shades look fabulous on you Kim!

JeannLiew | Luminnej said...

wow Kim! I can tell you are quite a lip product kind of gal, huh? Gosh, this is my first time hearing of the brand too and it comes in mirror and has lights too?? Sounds more like a gadget to me than a lip product, haha *_^

I have to confess I am not a huge fan of lipgloss, I only have a few of my favourites, and I don't wear them that often either but the shades here look lovely on you, though I would not personally like the plastic-ky smell of them on my lips *_^

Glad they work for you. Have a lovely week, Kim.


Jalisa G said...

I've heard so many great things about Gerard Cosmetics, too! I've never personally tried them, but I have to, especially after your trusted review. The colors are absolutely gorgeous and I love the finishes. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a lovely week so far!

plum crazy is a beautiful colour

Pamela RG said...

This product looks great. Simple packaging. The colours all look great on you. I like the Plum colour.

Shireen L. Platt said...

I have refrained myself from placing an order with Gerard Cosmetics when it was super hyped all over YouTube last year because I wasn't sure if all the beauty gurus were gushing because they had to. Now that I see you like it too then I will definitely place an order later this year!

Having the colours on lips really helped you pick some great shades for yourself Kim! The light and mirror is such a cool feature too! :)

Hey there Kim!
The mirror and light just sell this to me! I have to say that I love love love they way you've swatched each product and shown how it looks on your lips. Whenever I look at reviews I look for things similar to this to see how the colour would suit one's skin.
I'm a big fan of your blog, it's so sweet and you're so nice :)
I hope you remember me, I'm Selina :)

I really like that this brand shows how these lips glosses look on the lips and what about your new purchases, I love 3rd and 4th shade, they're beautiful, Kim :)

I have 3 of these, and I really love them! These colors look great on you. I think I have the nude shade too. It's really pretty!

Kay Cake said...

All the colours looks gorgeous on you! My favourite is Madison Avenue, it's such a pretty shade. I have one of their lipgloss and apart from the weird scent, I like the formula too, it's so creamy ~
