The lovely Des from Simple Charm Beauty and I did an international beauty swap! We arranged it probably about 2 months ago and we both received our packages pretty much the exact same day. It was so excited and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some American products which aren’t available in the UK.
It was so lovely to make a new friend through it too! We’ve spoken pretty much everyday since we started to organise it which has been really lovely. She is such a friendly person and if you haven’t already, you should go and check out her blog.
We set a limit of £40 and the equivalent in dollars, but i’m pretty sure we both overspent. Then we told each other what we like and what our skin type etc is. We then went out and had lots of fun shopping for bits for the other person!
This is all the bits I received in my package and I LOVE absolutely all of them.
I also received a Jordana Eyeshadow pencil but I completely forgot to photograph it separately.
|Wet & Wild Palette|
I’ve obviously never tried anything from Wet & Wild but I am seriously impressed with this little double quad palette. I’m not gonna say too much because i’d like to do a full on review at some point!
|Wet & Wild and Zoya Polishes.|
Three nail polishes were really lovely to see in the package. I absolutely love the colours but I haven’t tried any yet.
This foundation is absolutely HEAVENLY. I seriously love it and it has given my trusty Bourjois Healthy Serum a run for its money.
|3 Blushers. (Milani, Tarte, NYX)|
Each one of these blushers are gorgeous gorgeous colours and feel great on the skin. My eyes lit up like a kid in a candy shop when I saw a tart blush as I have had my eyes on this for so long but haven’t been able to get my hands on it.
|NYX butter gloss and Wet & Wild Lipstick.|
I have seen so many posts about the butter glosses and saw Essie button rave about them so I was super happy to see one of these in the box. The wet and wild lipstick is also gorgeous.
This palette is SO pretty. I did have a sneaky little use of it before photographing it, naughty blogger I know. It is so pigmented and the colours are absolutely beautiful. I know Des is jealous of this one so, if you’re reading this, which I’m sure you are, thank you for sending it to me and not keeping it for yourself 😉
I am so grateful for everything that I received and am so happy with each and everyone of the products. I wouldn’t change any of them.
Have you done a beauty swap? Would you do one?
