The lovely Sandra (from The Black Pearl Blog) and I agreed to do an international swap for the month of December. I’m sure you all know and love Sandra’s blog. The idea was for the packages to arrive before Christmas so they would be like holiday gifts. Mine arrived on the 24th, but the one I sent to her sadly arrived a little later. This was my first swap and it was so much fun. I suggest every blogger do a swap at least once!
I was beyond excited when I got this package. Everything inside came in adorable striped bags that resembled candy wrapping. The box was packed with goodies! I tried to put them back inside afterwards but they wouldn’t fit! I was ecstatic when I saw Sandra included the famous Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer and the Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer. Not only was I looking for new concealers but they are blogger favorites.
I was also sooo excited to see the Bourjois Liner Pinceau liquid eyeliner because I had always been curious about what liner Sandra used. I love everything she included and now have tons of lovely makeup to try out for months!!

I’m so grateful for everything I got. Thank you so much for doing the swap with me, Sandra!!! It was a great Christmas/Birthday surprise. I got so many products I wouldn’t have been able to try otherwise. And as I was opening the package I kept wondering why it smelled so nice then I discovered the Yankee Candle tarts. 🙂 I’ve tried some of the products already. The MUA #14 lipstick is gorgeous! I’m wearing Barry M Gold Mine Glitter on my nails right now. The Collection Lasting Concealer lives up to the hype, it’s my new favorite!
