Gallany Cosmetics Review – Makeup Trends for Fall 2016

Gallany Cosmetics is a unique beauty brand, created by cosmetics chemist Ida Gál-Csiszar. The company believes, “You don’t have to sacrifice quality for affordability.”

This is an appropriate statement because shoppers often feel that high-end prices will lend high-end results.  As beauty enthusiasts, we know this is not the truth and can look amazing with a moderately priced product.

Gallany Cosmetics Product Review:

Gothic or Dark lips is one of the makeup trends for the upcoming season.  This lip color can be applied for a date night or paired with a darker tone business suit. Either way, it’s a popular lipstick shade and should be worn with minimal makeup accents.

Gallany shipped a beautiful Semi Matte Lipstick in the color Black Cherry.  This particular lipstick shade is between a dark chocolate and berry hue.


To apply, use a lipliner and top with Gallany Lucite Lipgloss in the color Frisson. The Semi Matte Lipstick lasts for hours and hydrates the lips.

Another very popular makeup craze for the new season includes the “no makeup” lip trend. Gallany has created a Semi Matte shade in the color Just Nude.  The hue is a “true nude” and looks amazing with everything!

Apply the Gallany Lucite Lipgloss in Tutu for a high, sheen finish.


The kit also included Private Jet Black Mascara and Eyeshadow Quad (Cabaret) along with Budapest Face Palette Trio.  All of the items listed coordinate flawlessly with the lipsticks and glosses.


Aside from creating quality cosmetics, the packaging was beautiful with a copper/gold tone.  To learn more and order visit Gallany Cosmetics.com
