Blogger Beauty Box Swap

I always loved getting things in the post, and when I was younger I collected as many pen-pals as possible so I always had nice things coming through my letter box . Since I've gotten older and most of my post comes in the less pleasant form of bills, I have to work harder to balance them out with nice post - which is why I nearly always sign up to any blog swap I  come across! 

This most recent one was organised by Kat over at Tales of a Pale Face, and I was paired up with Rachel. After swapping a couple of emails about what we wanted it was time to sit back and wait for my parcel to arrive!

I love it when things come individually wrapped - it's like a mini-Christmas! 

Along with the little wrapped gifts, I got a little collection of perfume samples - I love these as they're great for travelling or carrying around with me. I can't wear perfume for work so if I'm going somewhere afterwards and want to smell pretty one of these is a lot easier to just stick in my bag than a full size bottle! 

I've been a long time fan of the first Undress Me palette from MUA so it's lovely to have Undress Me Too in my collection now too! And the MUA Lash Boom mascara to go with it - I love the fat purple package and am hugely intrigued by the weird shaped brush!

I also got the Collection Shimmer Shades in Blushalicious - four very pretty shimmer blusher shades, and a delicious chocolate lip butter that smells/tastes just like chocolate milkshake, mmmm!

And then, who doesn't love a bit of sparkle? I know I do anyway, and this Diamond Nail Manicure set from Accessorize should leave my nails twinkling away while the Collection Glam Crystals gel lines should do the same for my eyes!

A big thanks to Kat for organising the swap, and a massive thanks to Rachel for being an awesome swap partner and sending me so much awesome stuff! You can see what I sent in return on her post about the swap here - and if you know of any other swaps I can sign up to or you just fancy sending me some post then do let me know!

  4. I never have much look with blogger swaps, I've done two and sent out really nice stuff and got the worst crap back.
    This however looks thoughtful and a very good swap.
