Hello beautiful people! I'm super excited about this post today because my friend Becky from Star-Violet and I did a beauty swap! This was super fun because we decided to trade some products that we didn't use much or want anymore.
This was my first beauty swap so I was so happy to get my package in the mail! It really made my day since it came to me on a week that I was super sick and feeling so blah! I was in such awe at all the products she sent me and at her generosity. Thank you so much again Becky, and everyone go check out her blog too! She's an amazing makeup artist!
I had to laugh because she wrote and note on the inside of the box that said 'excuse the condition of this box' because she reused it and I did the same with the box I sent her LOL! I scribbled with a sharpie over all the logos from where the box came so we had the same idea haha!
I totally forgot to include this in the picture above! But it's an Urban Decay Nail polish and look at the skull on the top!! I'm obsessed. It's such a pretty dark purple shade! I usually only wear dark nail polish so this is perfect.
Next is the Too Faced a la mode palette, which you saw from my previous post on a spring makeup look. This is seriously so gorgeous and I was shocked when I saw this in the box!
This is a blush by Illamasqua. It's such a pretty color and have been wearing it everyday! I haven't tried anything by this brand before so I was excited about this one.
Next is the UD chill makeup setting spray. I've tried the other sprays from UD but not this one so I can't wait to test it out. Next to it is Mac velvet teddy which I have wanted for forever. I couldn't get good lighting so it looks kind of peachy color here lol!
Once again, thank you Becky for all these amazing goodies! I totally want to send you another box of stuff because you sent me so much!!
Thank you all for reading!!
That looks like an amazing box of goodies, Ashley and she got you really good stuff! I'll hop over to her blog after this. xxReplyDelete

Thanks Shireen! She has an. Amazing blog, you'll love her!Delete
What great colors & shades!ReplyDelete
You know Ashley, this is an excellent idea! Sometimes, there's makeup that doesn't work for me and I just throw away when another person can use it. I think that's what I'm going to be doing for now on with products. I reuse boxes all the time. So that's good that you guys did that. I just saw Urban Decay's nail polish and was wondering about it. Love the packaging! She sent you some really good stuff! Can she send her left over left overs to ME! HAHAHAHAHA Great post doll! I miss Pilar. Have you talked to her?ReplyDelete
I agree kim! I usually just let all my stuff I don't use sit there and go to waste so it's nice to give it away to someone who will use it! Let me know if you ever want to do a swap! And definitely try the UD Polish!!Delete
I miss her too!! I emailed her and we talked a little bit but that was a few weeks ago!
I'm ashamed of the shape that my UD pencils are in LOL I think I should've at least sharpened them :PReplyDelete
I'm really happy that you like everything! Glad it came at just the right time, hehe. I was hoping that you didn't already have the Too Faced palette cause I know you own a few of their products :) It's pretty weird to me seeing the things I used to own in someone else's hands now, but I know you'll give them a better home <3

LOL no worries about the pencils, I didn't even think about that lol!!'Delete
And I do love too faced shadows but I didn't own this one, so I was excited too! And I know what you mean ahah, but I'm glad you liked everything I sent you too!!
Wow so generous of her!! :)ReplyDelete
I haven't forgotten the swap we said we would do hehe. I'm thinking that I will take some Aussie goodies with me when I go to the US and ship it from there cause it's ridiculous to ship from here. I will let you know!! :)
