So I needed a new everyday eyeshadow palette and I wanted to support a local business so I ordered from Austin company Gourmande Girls. I’m also forever on the hunt for the perfect nude lipgloss and I have to share my finds.
First, the eyeshadow. It was on sale so how could I resist? It arrived quickly and I couldn’t help myself, before I even snapped a photo I tried it. The matte shades go on smooth and not too dark. An over abundance of pigment is as bad as not enough. The mattes in this collection seem to be true to color and not too sheer. There aren’t a lot of shimmery options here as it is an everyday palette, but the sheer shimmery ones had a surprising amount of pigment and shine. 👍My photos aren’t great cause I didn’t use filters on the makeup for obvious reasons.
The lip gloss. FS54 Nudist is the dish on the left, LG06 on the right. I don’t like arm swatching because people’s skin tones are so different. As a half Asian, I have yellow tones so I always feel a swatch on plain white with sheer and thick areas is the best example. Anyway, texture was not sticky, consistency was smooth and distribution was even. A solid find. Full disclosure, I was sent the lippies as a bonus but paid for the palette.
Sorry for the makeup smudges on the box and the disturbed shadows, I couldn’t help myself and dug in as soon as they arrived.
I also appreciate ethical, non animal tested and paraben free products. Suffice it to say I’m in love with my new palette and and pleased to have a new favorite indie makeup! Yay!
