Beauty blog Christmas swap!

A while ago Jasmine from Sweetaholic Beauty hosted a beauty bloggers Christmas swap, where she partnered girls from around the globe to swap products for Christmas. I was lucky enough to be partnered with Nay Denise from Tres Beau Glamor, who is from the US. We decided to set a limit of $50, and WOW. I was totally shocked with how much was in the box when I opened it!

It's hard to find a place to start, but I'll start with the things I was most excited about when I opened the box, which was the Lancome products. These were an eyeshadow quad, a single eyeshadow, a 'super enhancing mascara base' and some sample sized mascaras. I love all of these products (especially the mascara base with the mascara, so great! and the single eyeshadow is super duper pigmented!)

Lipstick in All Done Up, single eyeshadow in Officially In, and the quad shadows: Pink Pearl, Pink Zinc, Drama and Successorize

Next the lipsticks. I love Covergirl lipsticks, so I was so excited to see 2 lovely shades of these, Fairytale and Delight. The covergirl lipstick I own is super long lasting, and these are no exception. I also got a Revlon colourburst lipstick in Peach, 2 L'Oreal color riche lipsticks in Tickled Pink and Peach Fuzz, Maybeline lipstick in Coral Lustre, a wet n wild lipstick in just peachy and NK lipstick in Orange Tint.

Swatch order as above.

There were also some lipglosses. 3 L.A Colors glossy lips lipglosses in Sweet Treats, Butterscotch and Pink Icing, Elf super glossy lip shine in Watermelon, NK lipshine in Taupe, Milani crystal gloss in fruit punch and a clear Bobby Brown lip gloss. There were also 2 carmex lip balms in original and cherry.
Sweet Treats, Butterscotch, Pink Icing, Watermelon, Taupe, Fruit Punch, Clear, Cherry and Original. 

Next there were a bunch of really pretty single eyeshadows from NK. These are great because I don't own many coloured eyeshadows. I got 3 purples, 2 pinks, a green and two blues (these don't have names, just numbers). I also got 2 wild and crazy eyeshadows in New u Girl (yellow) and Crazy on You (orange).

Order as above.

Ther were also 2 eyeliners from Prestige in Shiraz and Lagoon, a multicolour blush from Kleancolor and an Isis Idel Cosmetics lip conditioner in Innocent.

She also sent me an Avon skin softener in Imari, an Apricot scrub, and a makeup case full of Lancome samples, manicure guides and nail stickers!


  1. What a great swap - next year I'd love to be a part of this swap too!!

    1. I've seen heaps of people do swaps, so I'm sure you'll come across one to participate in before next Christmas :)

  2. Oh wow that's a lot of stuff for $50! Jasmine from Sweetaholic Beauty is a gem for organising all these swaps :)

  3. What an amazing swap! I love Lancome :)

  4. I am so glad you liked the products!!! We definitely have to do another swap if you're up for it :)

  5. Great swap! BTW I changed my Favourite Beauty Products for 2012 post into a tag... I tagged you at the end of my post because I would love to see what your favourites are!

    1. Oh awesome, thanks for letting me know because I probably would have totally missed the tag at the end! Hopefully I have some time soon.
