Few weeks ago, the lovely Betzy - from Betzy's Makeup - asked me if I'd fancy a swap with her... so, I jumped at the chance of getting some goodies from the USA.
My parcel arrived few days ago and ever since I haven't stopped playing with my new make-up.
(I'm gonna split the Haul into 2 posts as it's very picture heavy, sorry!)
First of all, the box: Betzy used a BirchBox to send me all the items and I'm sooo gonna keep it!!! :)
I'm, also, loving the floral tape - too cute!
I asked for brands that I can't find in Uk or items that are yet to be released in Uk (see Revlon Chubby Stick - exciting!!!) - and luckily, loving everything so far.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 001 Honey
This is the one that I was - mostly - looking forward to try out!
I adore the Clinique Chubby Sticks and these look like exact dupes but cheaper... these really just came out in the States and it's really hard to find swatches online so I just picked the colour which looked most unusual but still wearable.
The gamble paid off because I'm so pleased with my choice; I'm not really sure how to describe this colour so I'll just let the swatch do the talk. ;)
Believe me, It's so so pretty!
Maybelline Bouncy Dream Bouncy Blush in 60 Coffee Cake
I, actually, like the bouncy consistency - although you end up wasting product. I think it's easy to work with and easily build-able.
I picked this colour because I have too many pink blushes already - It's, actually, less orange than in the picture and very flattering on the skin.
Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadow Trio in Knock On Wood
I saw so many youtube videos where people rave about these eyeshadows... I chose this trio because pink and purple are my most used eye colours.
These are lovely - very buttery and a joy to work with. They have a great pigment payoff (even the lighter shade) and blend very well. I'd, definitely, love to try some more of these.
Wet n Wild ColorIcon Blusher in Pearlescent Pink
Probably, my least favourite of the lot; as I said above, I have loads of pink blushes already so nothing particularly exciting about this product.
Still, lovely quality powder and I will, definitely, use it - safe blush choice!
Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color in Burgundy Frost
Another WnW item - hehe :)
Pretty, deep red shade with a bit of shimmer in it - can't go wrong with a red manicure and this colour will work well for a pedicure, too.
It lasted well for 4 days straight and dried super fast. I think, for the price, you get a good deal here.
