Hey y'all! Today I have a beautiful lippie from Gerard Cosmetics that was the creation of professional makeup artist & YouTube beauty expert, Jaclyn Hill.
When I was given the opportunity to review this, I absolutely had to try it. I discovered Jaclyn Hill and this particular lipstick by watching a review by Wayne Goss. I immediately went to her channel and slipped into a black hole of her videos. I think I was only a few in when I hit that subscribe button and I've been a fan since.
This shade was inspired by the revival of the 90's. Of course being a teenager in the 90's, this was instantly my type of color. In fact, I seem to remember a similar colored gloss that I wore back in the late 90's.
1995 is a brown nude with rose tones. I'm not usually a fan of rose shades, but once I noticed how great this looked on her I had to have it. It instantly screams for a grungy smoked out eye look with a flannel shirt & some Green Day playing in the background.
Now finding shades that work well with my light skintone and red hair can be challenging, but this works. In fact, I think it as one of those universal shades that looks great on everyone.
The formula is a matte, but not one of those that dries out your lips. With most matte lippies I'm either applying a lip balm like crazy throughout the day or applying the lipstick over & over again. Not with this. There's not even a noticeable smell either. So that's another bonus.
I love everything about this lipstick. What do y'all think?
