Gallany (Hungarian for girl) Cosmetics was invented by Ida Gál-Csiszar, an entrepreneurial woman who immigrated to the United States from Europe. She worked as a chemist for major beauty brands in the industry and soon decided that she wanted to create products that the general consumer would love, use and better yet, could afford without breaking the bank.

We got the opportunity to test and wear some of the products from the line so let’s dive right into the descriptions and the photos of everything that we received:

  • Second Skin foundation in the shades N10 and N70 ($32; 1 Fl. Oz) – This is the lightest full coverage foundation that I have ever tried. Second Skin was created with color corrective light diffusing spheres that were weightlessly suspended in a serum formulation that floats above lines and imperfections to give the look of vibrant, luminous, healthy skin. There are currently 8 shades of this foundation available.
  • Trios face palette in Malibu and Geneva ($23) – these are the perfect palette for you to take while you’re on the go! You can use the shades for your eyes, cheeks and face. The swatches below were applied with 2 swipes to build up and you can see the true colors (photos taken with flash and again with no flash).
  • Creme Satin Lipstick in Divine ($22) – this is a creamy wine shade with slight brown undertones to it.
  • Lucite Lipgloss in Dahlia ($18) – this is a deep berry gloss with purple and silver glitter specs in it. It does apply very light so you may have to build up the gloss if you want a seriously shine pout – and I mean who wouldn’t for spring? Keep in mind that this does have a slight vanilla fragrance to it.
