Ok I’m about to make the boldest statement I’ve ever made. Girlactik Lip Paints are THE best liquid lipstick in the world FULL STOP.
Yup, I said it, chuck out all your other lipsticks Ladies and Gents, because the only ones you need are Girlactik.
Now I’ve actually had these two beauties for nearly two years, but the reason I am only getting round to writing this post now is because I genuinely wanted to do them justice and get some decent photos so you could really see what I am on about.
Girlactik is an American beauty brand that is sold in selected boutiques throughout North America, and can be shipped internationally when purchased on their website. Since I was scared of the shipping cost and custom charges at the time, I was lucky enough to have a friend who was going on holiday to New York and after a bit of begging and a promise of a huge I.O.U, I persuaded her trek around Manhattan for an elusive Girlactik Stockist.
I spent weeks up to the day she left looking at swatch after swatch of all of their famous Lip Paints to decide what colours I wanted, and even though I would happily have them all, I eventually settled on Posh and Demure.
I would describe Posh as a deep peach, and for me it is the next step up from a nude lip, when you want something more colourful and a little playful. Since it isn’t either overly peach or pink, I think Posh would look beautiful on a variety of skin tones, day or night.
Demure, is exactly as it sounds. I stunning deep berry shade, that I think works for all seasons not just Autumn. Even though it is a bright colour, the matte finish tones it down, making this Lip Paint perfect for every day wear.
Every single thing about Girlactik Lip Paints is correct.
They glide on super super smooth, are ridiculously lightweight but still provide a huge colour payoff. They smell subtly of vanilla cake, and sweet pastry, which is a delight every time I open the tube and apply. However, the biggest plus point of these Liquid Lipsticks is that they dry to a full matte lip with almost negligible flaking and drying of the lips! Seriously, once it dries, it stays smooth with no cracks and minimal transference after eating and drinking. The only thing I had to do throughout the whole day is touch up a teensy bit in the middle of my lips.
I cannot explain how nice these feel on my lips in comparison to other matte liquid lipsticks. They simply are amazing.
So what are you waiting for? Even if it’s your Nan’s Sister’s Uncle’s Cousin who is going on their hols to America, get them to get you some Girlactik Lip Paints. Seriously, if your friend is going, hide in the car boot, chuck all her clothes out the suitcase and get in, because the anger they will feel towards you will be totally worth it if you can get your hands on one.
Personally, I am trying to justify a trip myself just to go get some more of these!
