GIRLACTIK MATTE LIP PAINTS


I first heard of the brand Girlactik when I came across the shade Demure in a makeup tutorial on Instagram. It was such a perfect shade of browny pink and I obviously had to get my hands on it. When I first tried it, I fell in love with its formula straight away and then went onto purchasing two more shades. The overall range consists of 10 shades.

The texture of these liquid lipsticks is mousse-like and easy to apply. It's super pigmented and with one dip into the tube it will cover your entire lip. I tend to wipe off all the excess and then use a lip brush to apply. It dries matte within seconds and can be layered for a richer colour- it does not make your lips look flakey when you layer the shade.
Like most liquid lipsticks, these come with a doe-foot applicator. I like using a lip brush for a sharp finish. I always tend to dab a little Carmex underneath any of my lip products solely because I don't want my lips drying out. However these matte liquid lipsticks weren't drying at all, nor were they sticky.

They are all super long lasting- I've worn the lipsticks for an entire day through to evening (around 7-8 hours) without any touch ups (tip: use a nude lip liner underneath to encourage its longevity). When I got in, I noticed only a small area in the inner part of my lips had come off.
