State Side Swap - part 2

... Part 1 here ...

EOS Lip Balm Sphere in Honeysuckle Honeydew
I rank this the second most exciting product of the swap. Again, I read plenty about this lip balm on the web... surely also because of the spheric container. Apart from that, they are 100% natural and 95% organic... and considering the cool packaging and quality ingredients you get, they are actually cheap!
I got to admit that I love to twist the wee ball of product on my lips - you can do both upper and lower lip in one go! ;)
I picked this flavour as it sounds the most interesting - it smells like melon to me :S - still pleasant... and needless to say I WANT THEM ALL!!!



NYX Cream Blush in Glow
From NYX, I decide to try this blush as everybody is saying it's a dupe for Mac Posey (which was on my wish list). I like it very much - it's a cooler toned pink than I, usually, wear but I found it suits my skintone, too.
When I opened it, I thought it looked very similar to Mac Something Special but as you can see - in the picture - Something Special is definitely more coral.
For the product itself, NYX is sticker and gives a more dewy finish, whilst Mac dries matte on the skin.
I like both results, personally!




l: Something special - r: Glow
NYC Ultra Moist Lip Wear in 316 Blossom
 Very bright in the tube but it, actually, mutes down on the lips; very moisturising and comfortable to wear... I can never get tired of rocking fuchsia lips! ;P



Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr in 30 Pomegranate Punk
I, finally, got my Pomegranate Punk! I complained before how this colour wasn't released in Uk.
You all must have tried the colour tattoo already, so product-wise is like the one you find in Uk; packaging-wise is completely different and they could be easily two different products. Personally, I prefer the British pot.
This eyeshadow reminds me of Chanel Illusion d'Ombre in Ebloui but the Chanel is more of a rusty colour, while the Maybelline more purple/plum.



Betzy sent me these extra perfumes to try, too.
L'Etrog by Arquiste, especially, is very me! :)


I had never thought about swapping with somebody overseas before because I was worried about custom, but everything went smoothly; it was fast too and we got each other parcels in about a week.

Here is the link to Betzy's Blog again... so you can check out what I sent her!
... I can, definitely, see another swap on the horizon... ;)

  14. Such lovely products! Lots of beauty blogging favs in there :) I'm still waiting for the Maybelline cream eyeshadows to come to our shores, I'm eyeing the bronze one but Pomegranate Punk looks really pretty and more unique. I love the NYX cream blush, it's such a gorgeous colour. I have one in Natural which I've been loving lately. Really impressed with the pigmentation, texture and quality.
