Laura Geller Luscious Lips Liquid Lipstick in Cherry Almond

One of my mum's favourite makeup brands is Laura Geller. Personally I've not tested too many of her products. The ones I have done have been ok, but nothing I would rate as favourites. The Bronze and Brighten Kit I tried was quite nice, but the gel liner I got in my Birchbox a long while ago now was a pretty epic fail if I do say so myself. However I'll try pretty much any product once, so when my mum ordered a gift pack full of Geller products and gave me, the beauty enthusiast, a chance to test everything whilst it was brand new I jumped at the chance.

The first product I reached for was this lovely liquid lipstick. I've been all about the lip paints since those gorgeous Rimmel Appocalips Lip Lacquers came out. Granted, this isn't a patch on those, but the whole concept is similar.

This product is more of a cream than a gloss. It is applied using a doe-foot applicator which I find to be the easiest way to apply product. I'm definitely not a lip brush sort of girl.

The colour, Cherry Almond, ended up being quite a lot more brown/beige than expected. I figured it would be a nude pink but it does come slightly different on the lips.

The colour is quite flattering on my skin tone but I would still prefer something a little less brown. Putting the colour issue to one side, the cream texture is quite lovely. It applies evenly and is reasonably opaque. It makes your lips look smoother and more perfected from what I have experienced. It's not too drying either. Granted, as the product wears off your lips do dry a bit but it's nothing extensive or uncomfortable. What I did like was that the colour was left behind, though the cream aspect had worn off. This meant that I still looked put together until my next application.

Over all it was a nice enough product. I'm still not so taken by this liquid lipstick that I would actively go and buy another myself. I feel like there are products on the high street that suit me nicely and are easier to get hold of. Having said all this, I would recommend it to anyone who's already looking to try this product. It's my personal favourite of Laura's so far, but that's on personal preference of that type of product I look for. I've got a blush and some eyeshadow to test out next so we shall see how they go.
