Girlactik is a beauty brand which I’ve heard a lot of American YouTubers mention but until recently I’d never tried any of their products, and I didn’t even know we could get our hands on them until I discovered that Beauty Chamber are their approved UK stockist. Although I’ve seen Girlactik products featured in videos before, I’ve never come across the Girlactik Le Creme Lipsticks but from looking online they appear to be one of Girlactik’s most popular product ranges. There are a total of six shades within the range, and each retail for £15.75 which is around the price of a MAC Lipstick.
Color your lips with a richly pigmented, silky smooth lipstick. The luxurious creamy texture adds the perfect color to your lips, imparting just the right amount of color with a semi shine/semi matte look that’s hydrating. All are Must Have shades with a Red Guava scent. Use the lipsticks over the Matte Lip Paint to create a different color. A favorite is the naked combined with the Allure lip paint for a nude healthy lip color.
I have two of the shades from the range; Naked which is a warm brown toned nude, and Couture which is a a scarlet red. The Girlactik Le Creme Lipsticks are packaged within gorgeous, gunmetal metallic casing with the brand name on the bottom half of the lipsticks in lilac writing. The lipsticks really do smell lovely and fruity, and I can smell the fruitiness whilst wearing them which doesn’t bother me in the slightest as the scent is so nice but it’s something to consider if you don’t like to be able to smell your lip products whilst they’re on the lips.
I am so wowed by how incredibly creamy these lipsticks are, and yes the clue is in the title of Girlactik Le Creme Lipsticks but they’re definitely one of the most creamy and silky lipstick formulas I’ve tried as they apply as evenly and easily as a lip butter but they’re intensely pigmented as you can see from the swatches above which are just two swipes of colour each.
Being totally honest, when I saw Naked in the tube I wasn’t really a fan as it’s such a browny nude and I tend to prefer pinky nudes but it’s a lot more flattering than I thought it would be and you can change the tone and colour depending on which lipliner you apply underneath. I like to wear Naked with a rosy pink liner as I find pinky tones to look better against my cool undertone but I imagine Naked would look amazing on those with warmer complexions.
Couture is just a signature red which everyone needs in their collection, and I’m pleased to say that the formula of these lipsticks is spot on as it doesn’t bleed or feather which is great for such a bold shade like Couture and they really do rival the likes of the YSL Rouge Volupte formula yet the Le Creme Lipsticks have greater longevity.
