In January, me and the gorgeous Saratu from xshakespeare.and.stilettosx decided to do a swap.
Most people know how this works already, but just for the novices I'll say: we set a budget, told each other preferences in terms of products, colors, and brands, if we had any particular product request, and then we shopped, shopped, shopped!
So here is what I got:
From the top, clockwise:
Sleek "The Original" Divine palette;
MAC Cremesheen lipstick in Creme d' Nude;
Bourjois blusher in Cendre de Rose Brune;
Barry M Glitter eyeliner in 07 (gold);
Barry M Lip Laquer Crayon in 01 (Scarlet Red, I think?);
Barry M Dazzle Dust in Stormy Cloud;
MEMEME PussyCat cheek and lip tint;
Illamasqua cream eyeshadow in Amour,
and she included a sample of Flora by Gucci perfume (I HEART THIS - IT'S GOING TO BE MY NEXT PERFUME!!!).
Needless to say, I'm super happy and I love everything she sent me! I kind of have a feeling she went a little overbudget for this, because of the Illamasqua and MAC products - but then again, I went way overbudget with hers too LOL - can we ever behave for once???
I have to thank Saratu again for this swap, it was such a lovely experience! Not just because of the shopping, but also because it allows people to get to know each other a little bit better. When reading her blog (and seeing it grow from n°1 post - as we are two of each other's first followers) I kind of sensed she was a gorgeous person, inside and outside, and our emails exchange just proved me right! She is beautiful, smart, driven, and she likes literature like I do, which for me is a huge +++ :D so, definitely, check her blog out!!!
I really look forward meeting you, next time I hit the Big Smoke (which might happen sooner than I thought, as my bf asked me to go there with him for a weekend, to visit his long time friend who lives there now).
