Why you need these liquid lipsticks in your life

I’m in love. I think I’ve found the one.

Well more than one to be exact. It started off with a Posh lunch with one, followed by a delightfully Demure evening with another. Next thing I know I’m with a different one every day of the week, sometimes two. Each of them beautiful in their own unique way but all of them so comforting and here in my life forever.

Girlactik Liquid Lipsticks

Girlactik Liquid Lipsticks

That’s right, I’m in love with Girlactik Liquid Lipsticks!

Girlactik is the brainchild of the super glamorous LA native Galit Strugano. What started off creating a foolproof eyeshadow base blossomed into a whole beauty empire and her story (which you can find online) of how Girlactik became to be, is not only seriously inspiring but demonstrates how much thought and care Galit puts into creating each product.

I’ve spoken about my obsession with Girlactik liquid lipsticks before and how they are the most comfortable matte liquid lipstick I have ever come across. What’s more, after makeup food comes a really really close second on the list of things I love and every Girlactik lipstick I have tried has the staying power to get through any cuisine I crave.

Given my love for these liquid lipsticks you can imagine my excitement when I was sent several shades from the classic matte range as well as all three of Girlactik’s new metallic liquid lipsticks to try out.*

Girlactik Liquid Lipstick

Now you know me, I love trying on different lipsticks so you can see what it actually looks like on the lips but as well as showing you photos of the different colours, I have described a certain look with each one, whether that’s an outfit or suggesting certain colours that match well. I feel this is an integral part of getting ready, as although some of you might want to walk round nude in public (please Kit Harrington) we are all bound by social rules that dictate clothes must be worn! This means once you’ve decided on your outfit you need to pick that perfect lipstick to help you achieve an overall cohesive look.

Girlactik Liquid Lipstick in Blossom

First up is Blossom. This gorgeous fuchsia is the perfect matte mix of red and pink. As well as going perfectly with lace and light airy materials, I’m getting definite oriental vibes so pair with bright grass greens and bold sky blues.


Girlactik liquid lipstick in Bashful

Bashful is a perfect peachy nude. As soon as I applied this to my lips I immediately thought pastels. Lilacs and pistachio green or even creams and deep navy for those colder months.


Girlactik liquid lipstick in Starlet

I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about Starlet as it is such a bright pink but the moment I put it on I loved it and wore it for the rest of the day. I even ate three fajitas and drank numerous cups of tea and it was still going strong! Starlet has blue undertones which means it goes great with crisp whites and denim. Jean shirt, dungarees, denim jacket, heck go nuts and cover your whole body in denim and it will still look great.


Girlactik liquid lipstick in sweet

Oh how sweet is this liquid lipstick in Sweet. I love that this has a matte finish opposed to glossy as it give this feminine pink more of an edge. Now I’m not just being a bit extra holding the rose as if I’m in a romance film (or maybe I am) but the yellow centre, mauve pink petal tips and leaf green, that make up this white rose all go perfectly with Sweet. Apply that to clothing and you’ve got yourself a fabulous outfit.


Girlactic liquid lipstick in spice

Think rich tans, oranges, even emerald greens for this next lipstick in Spice. Since I’m still saving up to go to India (one of my must-visit desinations), combining Spice with just the right outfit makes me feel as if I’m practically there!


Girlactik liquid lipstick in Sahara

I have a soft spot for this next lipstick Sahara as my surname actually means person of the Sahara desert. It’s like my version of finding my name on a keyring! One of the first in Girlactik’s metallic range, loads of colours go well with Sahara but the one thing they have in common is cool undertones and when it comes to matching an outfit with this peachy gold dream just think of the sand and the sky.

Girlactik liquid lipstick in Romance

What could be better than my favourite colour lipstick, oh I know a pink lipstick with a metallic finish. This literally is Romance in a bottle. I would wear Romance with non-metallic pinks and greys during the day but at night it would be rude of me not to wear sequins. So here I am rocking a grey evening gown with sequins that shimmer Romance pink in the light. Nailed it.


Girlactik liquid lipstick in Crimson

The last one in the metallic range is Crimson. This wine red dress was a must, throw on a black leather jacket and I would be feeling full on glam rock chic. If in doubt monochrome is always the way forward.

So in my previous Girlactik post I made a pretty bold claim that they are the best liquid lipsticks in the world. Do I still think that?


The first thing I noticed about these lipsticks is that the formula is consistent with every single one. They all glide of easy peasy lemon squeezy, no streaks or flakiness just nice even colour. The metallics are just as comfortable and long lasting as the classic mattes, if not more so which seems impossible. There were times when I even forgot I was wearing a lipstick at all and it wasn’t until I caught my reflection in the mirror I had to remind myself to make sure I take it off before bed!

There is a shade that suits everyone, actually more than one shade as you can see here. Perfect for every day, every evening, every season. In fact they’re so long-lasting they would probably last the whole year. Don’t worry though, a few wipes with makeup remover and your lips are ready for another shade.

Come join the Girlactik club, you won’t be disappointed.

    I’ve tried the NYX lip lingerie line of liquid lipsyicks but that’s as far as I’ve ventured. Maybe I’ll give this a go in the future!

      You won’t be disappointed. I’m always a bit wary trying out liquid lipsticks as they can be so uncomfortable to wear but these are great and the pigmentation is amazing. so worth it xx

  2. September 3, 2017 / 7:22 pm

    Okay I’m off to go and buy the whole collection! They are gorgeous! I’ve heard such great things about this brand! Your lips are actual goals too ❤️

      Ahh Thank you! Romance is gorgeous isn’t it. Pink is my favourite colour and I do love a metallic lipstick so it is the perfect combination. xx

  5. September 3, 2017 / 7:27 pm

    All the lipsticks look amazing! The pigments and the colors are so nice! I didn’t know this brand but as they are cruelty free, I’ll check them out! xx corinne

      The pigment is crazy good in all of them. Only one dip into the tube is enough to cover my lips. All Girlactik makeup is cruelty free and a lot of them are vegan friendly too! It’s such a fab brand xx

  6. September 3, 2017 / 7:32 pm

    Argh, these shades just all look PERFECT on you. I’ve just splurged on a bunch of lime crime liquid hippies but this has made me want to test these too. I literally can’t choose a fave shade, they all look so amazing! Bashful looks stunning on you! x

      You can never have too many liquid lipsticks! Bashful is gorgeous. Such a nice pretty peach nude. They are all lovely tbf, I can’t pick a favourite xx

  7. September 3, 2017 / 7:39 pm

    What a beautiful collection of shades! I’ve never heard of girlactik before, but their products seem like such great quality. I think Bashful, Sweet and Spice are my new favourites, I’ll definitely have to pick some up x

      Yeah it’s such a shame you don’t hear much about Girlactik over here but they are amazing. I try and get a friend who is going on holiday to America to pick one up for me but I’d definitely buy from the Girlactik site as well if I can’t wait! haha xx

  8. September 3, 2017 / 7:42 pm

    I’ve only ever tried one liquid lipstick and didn’t get on with it but I’ll have to invest in some of these as they look amazing on you! Loved this post x

      I totally know what you mean. I have tried some really bad liquid lipsticks *cough* Mac *cough* haha. I mean the colour was great but when it makes your lips feel like the desert in under a min it’s just not worth it. Girlactik Lipsticks are honestly like wearing nothing. They are fab and the shades are gorgeous xx

      September 4, 2017 / 10:43 am

      They are the best aren’t they! Honestly don’t know what I did before liquid lipsticks haha. It’s nice to just apply it and voila you’re set for the whole day xx

  9. September 3, 2017 / 7:48 pm

    OMG YES. I love Girlactik’s lip liquids too! I’ve blogged about it as well and I think everyone should know about how amazing they are. My favourite is Demure because it suits me perfectly but every shades look great on you. And may I say, you have the cutest and prettiest lips x Ain (www.captaineverland,co,uk)

      Yes! They are aren’t they? I’m always surprised more people haven’t heard of Girlactik liquid lipsticks as the formula is the best I’ve tried. Demure was one of the first shades I owned and it is the most perfect berry shade. I do love them all though! xx

  10. September 3, 2017 / 7:56 pm

    Omg those metallic ones look to die for!! I didn’t know that Girlactik was available in the uk? I’ll definitely be picking at least one of these up xx

      There are some UK sites that sell a good selection of the classic shades so definitely worth checking out. The metallic ones I think are only sold on the Girlactik site atm but they are so good it’s maybe worth a little check out too haha xx

  11. September 3, 2017 / 8:06 pm

    Ahh! Blossom and sweet are gorgeous

    • A love affair with Beauty
      September 4, 2017 / 10:33 am

      I was so surprised with Blossom! I thought it looked a bit too bright for me but then when I put it on I just left it on all day as I loved it so much. Sweet is just the most perfect classic nude pink. I just love them all!! haha xx

  12. September 3, 2017 / 8:17 pm

    I always hear Tamana ‘dress you face’ talk about this brand and think they look great. And they look so fab on your lips! You have such lovely ones! 😂 May have to add to my kit!

      They really are great. I’ve had a few of them for years and they always got compliments when I wear them and then when I got to try out more shades I was so impressed they were all the same high quality. I think there are some proper UK websites you can buy them off if you don’t want to pay international delivery but they don’t have the full colour range. xx

  13. September 3, 2017 / 8:32 pm

    I am so glad that liquid lipsticks exist and these ones look amazing. I usually stick to NYX liquid lipsticks but I might have to try a few of these!!

      Same!! Whenever I wear a normal lipstick now I always get disappointed they don’t last long. NYX liquid lipsticks are great. I’ve got a few of the suede lips and for the price as well they are really good. However I have noticed some of the shades are a bit hit or miss with the formula, whereas so far every Girlactik lippy I’ve tried is perfect! xx

  14. September 3, 2017 / 8:57 pm

    I LOVE these colours! fab post, I need to try this brand out

    • A love affair with Beauty
      September 4, 2017 / 10:27 am

      They’re great aren’t they! I don’t even think I have a favourite. You can get them from some online UK stockists but the metallics you can get from the official Girlactik site. well worth it though. xx

    September 4, 2017 / 11:27 am

    Haha yup that was my thoughts on Crimson too! Yeah I love metallic lipsticks. I’m not brave enough to wear whacky colours so metallic lippies is great as it looks so glam. xx

  16. September 5, 2017 / 6:14 pm

    I’ve never heard about this brand before. These liquid lipsticks look so beautiful. I love this Bashful shade. It’s definitely something I would go for. x

  17. September 5, 2017 / 6:23 pm

    Wow, this is a beautiful post! I think Bashful & Spice are more my type of colours. I don’t really “do” lipstick and I’m certainly not that confident to go with bright colours either! So always something subtle and nude for me. Your photos are absolutely stunning xxx

  18. September 5, 2017 / 6:41 pm

    I’m absolutely in love with Blossom and Romance! Metallic lipsticks are one of my fave current beauty trends and both of those colors look amazing on you! It’s so lovely to learn about a new brand, especially when it’s a liquid lipstick that works so well.


  19. September 5, 2017 / 8:02 pm

    the shades of these liquid lipsticks are extremely pretty,would love to try it out some time! great post!!
