We first met award-winning makeup artist, Katelyn Galloway, two years ago on YouTube. Under the moniker Kiki G., the sassy, platinum-blonde Virgo won us over with her infectious personality, practical makeup tips, and beauty industry insights.
But behind the virtual fame, Kiki was working on a much bigger project - one we were hungry to be a part of.
A self-proclaimed Olympic gold medalist in perfectionism, Kiki has been hard at work building a revolutionary new cosmetics brand called Salt New York. The company aims to create necessary, high-quality products for people who, as Kiki says, “like pretty makeup, smart things and obsessive organizational abilities.”
The first product from Salt New York, a magnetic makeup palette funded by pro makeup artists worldwide through Kickstarter, is set to roll out very soon. Join our waitlist here to receive exclusive launch alerts and be the first to shop.

Why The Palette Is Different
Cosmetics packaging in the U.S. accounts for more than 25 million tons of waste each year - gross! To combat this, The Palette is made from the highest-quality, eco-friendly, post-consumer recycled materials and vegan leather.
The zippered compact includes a magnetic panel on one side to secure depotted makeup pans from your favorite brands and an unbreakable mirror on the other side for easy makeup application on-the-go. Throw The Palette in your bag, toss it in your kit, sit on it, step on it…okay, don’t do that…but the point is you can feel confident toting The Palette around without fear of breaking your precious makeup staples.
In coming months, Salt New York will roll out a collection of STELLAR makeup essentials (seriously: Kiki has spent six years perfecting these products, and you’re going to freak out) that fit perfectly in The Palette.
