It's no secret I have no self control when it comes to liquid matte lipsticks ... well makeup on a whole but liquid mattes and highlighters I just really can't pass on! Girlactik was a brand I followed on Instagram for a while and if I'm totally honest I didn't really start seeing them being mentioned by others until mid year last year. The one thing they have become popular for is their liquid matte lipsticks without a doubt!
I was lucky enough to visit their stand at IMAT's in LA back in January which meant I got to have a play and swatch the lipsticks to get a feel to them. The stand was crowded as expected so I just had to get all the shades I could see (oops!).
Firstly lets start with the packaging, the box these come in has a lovely tile print effect, the tubes themselves are matte but not the type of matte that is lethal for fingerprints if that makes sense and then the lid is metallic. Now I don't know what it is but I get a hell of a luxurious feel from their liquid mattes, I could tell immediately a lot of time and effort has gone into these starting from the packaging to the product itself. The texture of the Girlactik Liquid Matte Lipsticks is quite different from the rest available on the market, I would describe it as very, very fine, lightweight, creamy-mousse texture and once on the lips I kid you not when I say you cannot feel these on the lips whatsoever, so I don't know what formula they got cooking in their but they've definitely done one hell of an amazing job!
