With the surge of international makeup brands arriving in our country, the cosmetics industry in the Philippines has been getting more and more competitive. As consumers, it takes quite an effort to get to know all these brands that are coming in and learn which products are really right for you.
Last week, I was lucky to be invited for a one-on-one product tour with Girlactik Philippines’ CEO and marketing team in their retail outlet in Glorietta 5 to get to know more about the brand and their products.
Hollywood makeup artist, Galit Strugano, founded Girlactik Beauty. She developed a sparkle formula that would work effortlessly for her, as well as for her celebrity clients. Galit’s concept was simple: she wanted a “sparkle makeup that actually stayed put.”
Over time, the brand has blossomed to a full range of makeup line which now includes pigmented shadows, blushes, glosses, shimmer dusts, waterproof eye shadow, and tinted moisturizers. With the brand’s specialty in glitter makeup, the line has attracted a high-profile celebrity following including Eva Longoria, Britney Spears, Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Lowndes, Kristen Bell, and Christina Aguilera to name a few.
Swan Dance International Trading, which primarily supplies, retails and distributes ballet products and accessories, now carries the local distributorship of Girlactik Beauty.
Girlactik Beauty, a brand that has established itself in revolutionizing the use sparkle makeup in Hollywood, also boasts that all of their makeup is organic. When you check the label, you can see that their cosmetics is infused with Vitamin E, castor oil (which helps fade age spots), sunflower oil (a natural calming and emollient for the skin), safflower oil (which helps rejuvenate dry skin), and some are even infused with green tea. Only good stuff and nothing scary or bad for the skin.
With this, I would like to show you some of my favorite Girlactik Beauty products:
Girlactik Beauty Eye Glaze (Php1,370)
Topping off the list would be Girlactik’s Eye Glaze. What’s unique about this product is that it’s a cream shadow in a lipgloss tube. It has a velvety texture and is easily blendable. Its lightweight and waterproof formula makes the product last all day without creasing. Girlactik’s Eye Glaze is infused with jojoba oil/esters which is known to increase skin hydration and ward off wrinkles and fine lines.
When blended well using your finger, it gives off a subtle dewy shimmer application on your lids or browbone as a highlight. It dries up fast so it’s a bit tricky to apply. You also have to keep in mind that, with this product, a little goes a long way. You may opt to concentrate the product on your inner tear duct to catch more light in that area and open up your peepers. If you wish to use Girlactik’s Eye Glaze as a shimmer eyeliner, you can use your trusty eyeliner brush and concentrate the product on your lashline.
Girlactik Sparkle Sets (Php1,450)
The brand’s highest-rated product, Girlactik’s Sparkle Set, is formulated to have no-mess which lasts all day without smudging. Each set contains a pot of black cream liner base and a pot of colored glitter pigment. Channel Beyonce as the high-sparkle glitter liner instantly adds oomph to your girl’s night out get-up.
You can also make your lashes sparkle while using Girlactik’s Sparkle pots. Dip your finger in the glitter pot and dab some loose shimmer powder onto your lashes while it’s still wet with a fresh coat of mascara.
Girlactik Matte Bronzer (Php2,110)
Not everyone is blessed with a good bone structure. Get that perfectly chiseled face and channel any of the VS angels with Girlactik’s Matte Bronzer. It works on almost all complexions and gives off the vibe that you have just vacationed on St. Tropez.
Girlactik’s Matte Bronzer is available in two shades: Cabo (Fair to Medium skin) and Casablanca (Medium to Dark skin).
Girlactik Star Gloss (Php1,380)
Girlactik’s Star Gloss ranges from sheer to frosted finish. It has a thick consistency that stays put on your lips for hours to keep them moist and sparkling. In fact, Jennifer Love Hewitt swears by this product’s lasting power.
It’s versatile–you can use this as it is for a sheer coverage to get that fresh and youthful look. Or you can top off your favorite lipstick with Girlactik’s Star Gloss to add shine to your sexy pout.
