Last month, my good Blogger/Twitter friend, Jazmin and I decided that it would be fun to do a makeup swap. It was both our first time so we didn't know what to expect. We didn't set any rules or anything, we just had fun with it.
We sent out our packages the first week of December so that was just another thing to add to my list of things to be anxious about in December--her package, my birthday, Christmas!
I can't tell you exactly what day my package arrived because now it feels like it was a long time ago. She posted her end of the swap rather quickly. I'm just doing it now. I'm so sorry.
But nonetheless, I loved my package and everything in it. Thank you so much, Jazmin!
This was the top of the little cardboard box that she sent my goodies in. I loved it at first sight! I mean, she took the time to decorate it for me and personalize it. Now that was sweet.
Here is how it was neatly wrapped up with this berry colored tissue paper and a cute star sticker. I laughed when I saw this because I thought it was so weird how that "berry" color is my favorite color and that I have a thing for stars. We never discussed that and that's why I thought it was so funny that she decorated my package like this.
And here is the sweet little letter she wrote me. I thought it was a nice touch. I appreciate that she took the time to do this. And yes, Jazmin, we should do it again!
I got two perfume samples. Viva La Juicy Eau de Parfum Spray by Juicy Couture and Attimo Eau de Toilette by Salvatore Ferragamo. I've never tried the Juicy Couture perfumes before but I do have a Salvatore Ferragamo perfume which I love!
Left to Right:
Physicians Formula Plumping Lip Color Plum Palette in 2462 Spices: I am new to the Physicians Formula brand and I love their cream liners but have never tried their lip products. The colors in the palette are beautiful and I can't wait to try them.
Maybelline New York Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm in 25 Pink Punch: Finally, I got something that was all the rage on YouTube and in blogs! I've heard great things about this lip balm here and I'm so excited to try it out!
Kiss Nail Dress in pattern KDS04: I have never tried these dry nail polish strips before. Not just this brand but nail polish strips period. And these are so fun! They are black based with multi-colored and multi-shaped jewels scattered about. You can feel the tiny jewels! These are so unique, I love them. Again, I am really excited to try these on.
St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub: I have tried this before but such a long time ago. But I do remember loving it! It's oil free and exfoliates with all natural exfoliants. I had forgotten all about it so I'm glad she brought it back into my life.
Left to Right:
Montagne Jeunesse Chocolate Masque for Normal, Dry, and T-Zone Skin: Just yesterday I tried Montagne Jeunesse masks for the very first time in my life thanks to Influesnter and their Holiday VoxBox and I really liked it so now I'm really happy I got some more to try out.
Befine Food Skin Care Single Serve Exfoliating Cleanser: I saw this and at first I thought it was a snack! Leave it to me to always be thinking about food! But it might as well be with ingredients such as brown sugar, sweet almond, and oats. It's natural, paraben free, vegetarian proteins and allergen free fragrance.
Montagne Jeunesse Mud Pac for Normal, Dry, and T-Zone Skin: Now this one is going to be fun! I'm so happy to have received so many face products. I never purchase face products. I should though. I really need to start taking care of my skin and thanks to these goodies here, I will be able to start. I told my sweet-tart, "how cool, I got so much face stuff" and he tells me, "it's because you're 30 now. Maybe she's trying to tell you something." I had to laugh out loud at that one!
Oh and yay! I got some new nail polishes to add to my collection! I got Sinful Colors Professional Nail Polish in 944 Innocent and Confetti Long Wearing Nail Color in 085 Pop the Cork Purple. Such fun colors! I need to try that purple ASAP.
So that's it! I love all my stuff and I just wanted to say thank you to sweet Jazmin for all the wonderful presents she sent to me. I would love it if you would visit Jazmin's blog and show her some love. She's such a sweetheart.
