USA Swap

Last year, I did a swap with Betzy  from California (posts 1 & 2); it went really well so we decided to organize a new one. A couple of weeks ago, I received her parcel with these lovely items and loads of extras:




Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Trio in Silent Treatment 
I love WnW trios; quality is great, the powders blend easily and they always get the perfect color combinations. Been wanting Silent Treatment for a while - that eyelid colour is gorgeous!



Maybelline ColorSensational Lipcolor in 515 Coral Crush
Every Spring I get all obsessed around corals; this shade is perfect for day and night and very moisturizing on the lip.



CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in 400 Temptress
Never tried anything from CoverGirl before; packaging is cure and the colour has a beatiful sheen to it. For what I understand this brand is very affordable and I'm liking the quality so far.




Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream in Mudslide
This is amazing, I want every colour! It's not really a lipgloss but a lip cream so the colour payoff is very good. The tingle is totally different from your ordinary plumping product; it's actually refreshing, like rubbing an ice cube on your lips, nearly numbing in that sense but not uncomfortable. It's really hard to describe but it's definitely due to the peppermint in it. If you have tried the Burt's Bees lip balm, you know what I mean.




l-r: coral crush, temptress, mudslide
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Exposed
This colour is perfection! It would never normally go for a brownish blush but this one has got the right amount of pink to it and looks beautiful on the skin. I really don't understand why Tarte is not available in Uk, it'd do brilliantly and I'm looking forward to try more of their products.





I'm also looking forward to try the Maybelline Baby Lips and the Softlips - they are basically SPF for  your lips and I read great things about them! :)
I love overseas swaps - have you done one before?
