Whitening Lightning (Gerard Cosmetics) Lipgloss - Review & Swatches

If you're a part of or follow the online beauty community, chances are you've heard of Whitening Lightning (now Gerard Cosmetics) Lipglosses

I didn't pay much attention to the brand until I started hearing about their lighted lipglosses.  Ever since I saw them featured on my favorite beauty Youtube channels, I'd been wanting to get my hands on some.


There's a small mirror on the side of the tube and 2 little lights in the cap that light up when you open it.  This gloss is perfect for reapplying on the go and even in dark places.

Thankfully they are changing the packaging on these.  My tube of Pouty Princess came in the original packaging that almost looks like what a free toothbrush from the dentist would look like.  It has a drawing of a mouth and the phone number and website on the tube .  My tube of Nude came in their next try at repackaging and thankfully they removed the drawing and phone number so it was a big improvement.  Rose Hill came to me in their current packaging which I love.  The cap is gold and it's got a "GC" (for Gerard Cosmetics) on the cap .  Much more classy!

I wouldn't wear Nude on it's own because on me it's just too nude, if that makes sense.  It looks really nice on top of a lipstick.  Pouty Princess and Rose Hill are similar shades of a rosey mauve but Pouty Princess is super shimmery, kind of reminds me of one of my old MAC Dazzleglass glosses.

The gloss itself is wonderful.  I've heard people say that these aren't sticky which is not true.  It's just sticky enough where it lasts about 2 hours on me (which is a lot for me).

These glosses retail for $24 which is a bit much for a lipgloss in my opinion (that isn't a luxury brand, that is)!  It feels like I waited forever for a decent sale and a free shipping code but I finally got both a couple of weeks ago. I paid $29 for 3 glosses and got free shipping.  That's less than $10 per gloss!

If you want to purchase these, absolutely wait for a sale and google coupon codes, there are some great ones out there!  And be patient, I'm so glad I waited until they were at a low price and I was able to find a free shipping coupon code!

Overall, I love my new Whitening Lightning/Gerard Cosmetics glosses!  I have to admit, my favorite thing about them is the light, but of course the gloss itself is pretty great too!

Have you tried these glosses?  What's your favorite lipgloss?
