UK swap! (Thank you Magpie Sparkles!)

My first UK swap! Emma, AKA "Magpie Sparkles" agreed to do a drugstore trade with me overseas! Yay! This is a list of the contents of my package.

Divine Mineral Based Eye Palette in "Storm" (578)- Sleek Makeup
Mini Bourjois lipgloss in Au Menthol
The Little Pink Tin lip balm
MeMeMe Beat the Blues iredescent highlighter
BarryM lipstick #132
GOSH eyeliner in Bananas

This is the eyeshadow palette. It has really good neutrals, nothing too crazy. It has some matte colors and some sparkly ones. The colors are so soft and very nicely pigmented. I love this!

This is the Little Pink Tin lip balm, I am really liking the fact that this has SPF!

This is the Bananas eyeliner. OMG this color is very nice and very fresh looking for a lower lash line. I love this!

This is the mini Burjois lipgloss! It's so cute and it has a tiny loop of pink string so it can dangle from your cell phone or maybe even a key chain. =D

This is the BarryM lipstick. It's very smooth, the color is awesome. This picture doesn't do it justice. It looks like a rose/gold in the tube, and on the lips its metallic and almost bronzey. The finish is nice, kind of a satin. WOW !

This is a GREAT highlighter. The applicator is like a nail polish brush. The color is a peachy gold. This picture makes it look cool, it is not - its warm and when blended out, its a very nice gold. This looks like it would easily be an eyes/lips/face product - multi-taskers are the best.

That was a supercute swap! :))) I 'm getting ready for a swap myself, so this gave me a few ideas! :))

Oh really!?

Where are you swapping to?

Usa...and I 'm from one who joined the european-us swap bandwagon! :)))I totally understand what the girls meant when said that you can buy so much more in $ than in pounds or euros in my case! But nevertheless, it was superfun! :)

Oh Greece! Wow! That is on my list to visit before for a die. LOL, not that I'm kicking the bucket any time soon... LOL. The lady we swapped with was from the UK and it was SO fun watching her video of her opening the package! She was so darling and my mom really enjoyed it. I hope you do/did too!?
