My First Ever Halloween Swap

I recently participated in my first beauty blogger swap and it was really cool. The swap was organised by Sweetaholic Beauty's Jasmin and she did a great job. I was connected with beautiful Yessie from the US who writes over at Cinnamon and Zoey Kisses and we share a common blush and lippy addiction.

I was so excited to receive my Halloween goodies and Yessie did such a good job with what she picked. It was all so incredibly thoughtful. The colour choices were excellent and it's all things that I am going to use. It's a lot of fun getting access to some of the brands that aren't available here in Australia too. I sent Yessie some Aussie beauty products and I think we were both very relieved that everything arrived safely.
I received the Wet n Wild MegaPlump mascara which is right up my alley. I love a volumising mascara and being hot pink it won't disappear in my makeup bag. The NYX eye shadow in Cryptonite is absolutely stunning and one that I'm sure will look good on its own and with a coloured eye liner. I'm also a huge glitter fan so the Jewelry Heist from Spoiled is perfect. The eye shadow trio from Wet n Wild brings me down memory lane because I used to wear pink eye shadow in high school and I'm ready to bring it back. I've used Maybelline's Baby Lips before but I haven't tried the tinted version so I'm looking forward to pinking up my lips with Strike A Rose.
The Brazilliance tanner from tarte has me very intrigued, and since contouring is all the rage these days I am really excited about trying out the e.l.f. studio Blush and Bronzing Powder. They both have a beautiful shimmer to them so it's a good sign. Lucky last is another gloss for my growing collection and it's the Butter Gloss from NYX in the shade Merengue. It's such a pretty shade, and one that Elle Woods from Legally Blonde would approve of.
I was also thrilled to receive a pair of cute Halloween socks and some sweets. I didn't even have to do any trick or treating which is an added bonus. I wish I could have made Yessie's gift look more Halloween-esque but at the time I sent it there was no Halloween merchandise in the stores yet.

Are you into Halloween? Will you be trick or treating?

  2. I love Halloween but I don't know anyone who celebrate this day here. We use to make huge celebrations out of this day back in Canada! Do they celebrate Halloween in Norway?
    This is a great gift you received! Enjoy!
