Beauty Swap with SkinDeepBeautyBlog - UK to Canada!
March 21, 2013
I could not be more excited to post this video and blog! Astrid from SkinDeepBeautyBlog have been talking about having this swap since late 2012! We set a limit of $50 CDN (£31) and created little wishlist for products we would really love to try. I'm so happy about the items I received and I will definitely use them all!
Let's jump into everything, our videos are listed at the end of the blog post.
Everything was wrapped in this awesome paper. I forgot to take a photo before I started filming and dug in!
The glitter, different designs, and the UK inspired wrapping paper really made this box special! :)
Ofcourse we had to include some goodies! I requested Cadbury chocolate, specifically Flake bars... oh man all these treats were delicious and went way too quickly!
She also included this beautiful cuff bracelet! I have a few outfits in mind that would go great with this gorgeous cuff from East.
Let's jump into the beauty goodies!
Soap & Glory Wowed Mouth Lip Palette
This was purchased at Boots for £7!
I'll have an indepth review in a few weeks for this palette with much better photos! I love the idea of a lip palette, and I can really see myself wearing these colours. *The colouring in this photo is way off, sorry!*
TopShop Louise Gray Creme Eyeshadows
Purchased in the sale for only £2
Purchased in the sale for only £2
Louise Gray is a Scottish Fashion Designer that teamed up with Topshop for a Limited Edition Collection. This doesn't have a name or product number I can see so I'm not sure how many other colour combinations were available for this collection. I'm excited to try these out in the Spring and Summer.
Sleek Pout Paint in Milkshake - £4.99
I asked for this because I've had my eye on it for quite some time! I've heard these are great dupe for OCC Lip Tars. I look forward to experimenting with this!
Collection(2000) Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light 02 - £4.19
Looks like the brand is cashing in on the hype over this product because apparently it went up quite a bit in price. I plan on doing a full blown review on this bad boy because I am already enjoying it, a lot!
Barry M Nail Paint in Colbalt Blue and Indigo
Purchased from Superdrug, 2 for £5
I've heard so many great things about Barry M in general, especially their polishes. I requested these two shades and I couldn't be happier with them both. I'm excited to experiment with these some more. There will be an Nail of the Week post happening soon featuring these two.
Collection Shimmer Shades in 2 Blushalicious £4.19
So beautiful! This is one of Astrids favourite and has been for years. The two top shades are a satin-matte finish and the two bottom have subtle shimmer. I'll have an individual review on this as well.
Sleek i-Divine Ultra Mattes Darks Palette - £7.99
I am so excited to have this! I'm really loving matte shadows and I've been dying to try Sleek palettes. I can't wait to try this out and give an in depth review.
And last but not least a skincare sample!
Elizabeth's Daughter The Daily Moisturiser SPF15
Apparently this is a natural sunscreen and great for sensitive skin. This is right up my alley and I look forward to trying it out!
I couldn't be happier with this swap and how well it went. The only thing I wish I could change was the price of shipping to the UK, it was $35!! Everything is perfect and I will use all of it. I can't wait to test out these products and give full reviews on them all.
I hope you all check out SkinDeepBeautyBlogger, she has amazing reviews and is incredibly sweet. I can't wait to hear what thoughts she has on the products I sent to her.
Have you tried any of these products?
