Girlactik Headquarters Visit & Cosmetics Review

Girlactik Headquarters Visit & Cosmetics Review

I was so excited when the founder of Girlactik Cosmetics Galit Strugano called my cell directly and invited me to her Headquarters to personally show me where the magic happens and tell me about the brand first hand! 

As a pro Makeup Artist usually brands will just send products in the mail for me to try, which is still so awesome and exciting! But I really loved that Galit reached out personally. 

I had heard of the brand and seen other people use it and after attending a live seminar with amazing Makeup Artist Juanice who is the Dept Head on Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, she used Girlactik and raved about it in her class. 



The Girlactik Offices were totally gorgeous and chic!! Glam room goals for sure! I loved all the glam touches, chandeliers, fur and makeup everywhere! I got a tour of the offices, where they keep inventory and ship out orders daily and Galit put together a bag full of Girlactik goodies while telling me about the brand. Its so inspiring she started the brand in 2000 with only $1800!! With so much competition and a million new brands coming out constantly im so impressed Girlactik is still thriving!

I love this so cute!!

After the office tour we sat down and I got to preview Galit's "Vault of Newness" that she carries around with her & swatch some really exciting and gorgeous products Galit has coming for 2018. I cant say what they are but I am so excited for her and what she has coming up!! It was really cool to see in person Galit's passion for her products & brand she really cares and is very hands on!


As soon as I got home I was excited to lay everything out and open all my new makeup!


Above you can see I got so many amazing products to use! Matte Liquid lipsitcks, Face Glow Highlighters, Luminous Face Veil Powders, Brow Pencils, Metallic Eyeshadow sticks, Liquid Liner,  Invisible Shadow Primer/Eraser, Lip Pearl Duo Glosses, 2 x Face Glimmer tubes.


Above is 2 of the Face Glimmers top is PinkDiamond & the bottom is 14K these can be used as an eye shadow base to really make your eyes pop, or as a liquid highlight that will dry and stay put on the top of your cheekbones, under the brow or tip of the nose. 


Above are swatches of the Metallic Shadow Sticks they are soo gorgeous and pigmented as you can see! These are beautiful as a smudged liner, or as eye shadow or as an eye shadow base, I used the shade Sateen alone all over my clients eyelid with lashes for a natural look on a shoot recently, then for the last look I used Tuxedo all over her lid as a base for a really dark smokey eye! (See below)
