Jaclyn Hill, one of my all time favorite makeup artists, has teamed up once again with Gerard Cosmetics to create a gorgeous lipstick that fits in with the current 90’s lip trend. Jaclyn prides herself on recommending products that are great for all skin tones + her most current creation is no exception. 1995 is a muted, brown rose color and it is simply stunning. The packaging is also absolutely lovely – gold, sleek & simple.
Today is my first time wearing this lip color + it is love. I chose to keep my face very simple, sticking to bronzer, highlighter, a cat eye and MAC’s Warm Soul Blush. This lipstick deserves to shine, so keep the rest of the face neutral. The pigmentation is insane and the lasting power is incredible – I ate breakfast and chatted with friends and this lipstick held up. The only downside, which is not unusual for highly pigmented, long lasting lipsticks, is that it is slightly drying and accentuated the flaky bits on my lips. Next time I will prep my lips with a scrub + slathering them in a rich ointment prior to application.
