I have a new to me brand to share with you today, that you might not be familiar with either. GA-DE Cosmetics has been in business since the mid 80s, focusing on luxury color cosmetics, skin care, and fragrance. GA-DE is an Israeli brand, and I expect to see them more and more in the US. I feel like the products I tested out on are on par with Chanel.
GA-DE Cosmetics have nailed the sweet spot between product performance, aesthetic, and on trend shades and formulas. They are constantly trying new shades, formulas, and techniques to bring their customers new and beautiful products. The GA-DE brand is environmentally friendly, does not test on animals, and supports the community by donating and sponsoring local non-profit organizations.
I tried the Crystallic Luminous Silky Blush, Crystal Lights Lip Gloss, and Designer Lashes mascara. I couldn’t have been happier with the shades I was sent for review. I have the shade Sensual Blush in the Luminous Silky Blush, which is a beautiful neutral tone of plummy bronze. It doesn’t have shimmer, but it’s got a beautiful lit from within glow. It’s smooth, pigmented and lasts all day. Bonus points for the beautiful quilted texture pattern. I also love the large clear window, so I can see exactly what shade it is when I grab it from my makeup stash.
I have the Crystal Lights gloss in Sunstone, which is a beautiful nude loaded with shimmer. It has a moisturizing creamy feel with a scent of vanilla. It performs more like a balm, leaving my lips feeling soft and smooth. This is such a perfect nude shade, and I love the fun shimmer. The Designer Lashes mascara is a great choice if you like to add length and definition to your lashes. It has a large bristle brush that I would compare to the CoverGirl Lash Blast line. I feel like it’s a solid mascara formula for its lasting power. It doesn’t irritate my eyes, and there is no flaking or smudging.
The mascara retails for $18, the gloss is $20, and the blush is $30. They also have some gorgeous looking eye shadow palettes that are worth a look at.
