First impressions - GWA Natural palette & 2 Maybelline lipsticks - and link to a bargain price!!!

Hi everyone and happy October!! I can't believe it is this far into the year already. I really love autumn though and the changing leaves are so pretty.

I popped into town today and I bought a few new bits of makeup. I got the Natural palette from GWA and also 2 lipsticks from Maybelline.

So first things first. The palette by Girls with Attitude. It has 12 shadows in it and are, as it suggests, a very neutral palette. 

GWA Natural eyes 12 piece eyeshadow palette

There are 12 shades in the palette with a mix of matte, sheen and shimmer. I swatched the shadows onto my arm and first impressions are that the shimmer shades are really pigmented however the matte shades really do struggle to give much pay off and are quite patchy with just one sweep.

I would need to work with this palette to see if the shades are buildable or not. I do think the shimmer shades are very pigmented and are really pretty though and great for an every day look or to add some shimmer to an evening look.

Next up are two lipsticks by Maybelline. I usually struggle to find a shade that suits me but not today - I think the lipstick fairies were smiling on me today because I found not one but two..... yes TWO beautiful shades.

The first shade I tried was shade 630 and I cannot believe that it is on Amazon for only £2.50 .... argh I paid £6.99!!!! I think I am going to have to stock up on some more shades!

The colour is so nice on and I just love it. It feels really nourishing without being to heavy. One of my new favourites.
The next one I bought was in shade 240 and boy oh boy it is so pretty.

It is a really pretty mauve shade with a gold shimmer. I do not usually like shimmery lipsticks because I usually find them really drying on my lips but wow, wow, wow ..... this is unbelievable. It is so gorgeous and feels really moist. I had thought the previous lipstick was my favourite but honestly this one just pips it! 

I have put a video up on YouTube if you want to see how the eyeshadows and lipstick look 'in real life'

I am delighted with my purchases today. I hope you have found this useful. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and I will be back again soon
