International Makeup Swap!

Last month I took part in a make up swap with American youtuber/blogger Liz which was really exciting!  We set a spending limit and a date for when we would send our parcels.  I had sent mine a few days before she sent hers so when it hadn't arrived over a week later I was getting really concerned, however they both arrived on the same day which was funny!

The sending process in America seemed so complicated compared to ours (whack an airmail stamp on it), there was a list of all the items in it on the outside, a couple of stamps, and Liz was asked for my phone number!

Anyway, on to the exciting part, here are all the items she bought for me:


I am so pleased with everything she picked out for me!  The only thing I have tried out so far is the eyeshadow quad which I used to create a really simple smokey eye, however I was in a rush and didn't use primer so by the time I got home it had melted off!!

I will do individual reviews of all the things once I've had a chance to try them out for a while.

If you would like to see everything I bought for Liz then click here to watch the video of her opening my parcel.

This was such a fun experience and I would love to do it again, it's just quite expensive because of p&p :(
