A USA Beauty Swap Haul

This is a super long overdue blog post, I just haven't had the time and my beloved camera until recently to do a blog post this topic dserved. As many of you may have read I have been shopping for a swap for the lovely Andrea all the way in my favourite place called America. She got her package incredibly quick which is a shocker for Royal Mail. Anyway you can read her sweet post here if you want to see what I sent her. She also has an amazing blog so follow too if you like :).
 Andrea didn't have many specific items she wanted to try so I had free reign pretty much but as I love the US and I know what they have that we don't I of course had a list of things which she kindly got for me (along with surprises she picked).
So this lady got SO much into one tiny little box...skills right there.
Terrible picture but I lost the dslr pictures I had taken. Just wanted to show how she wrapped everything up in tissue and cute stickers! It was like opening Christmas presents but better.
forever 21 necklaces
 Some dainty little forever 21 necklaces with a spoon, bird and I think a moose.
Sephora opi bath and body works nail art pen nyx orange maybelline colour tattoo eyeshadow
 Bath and bodyworks pink chiffon body lotion, sephora OPI nail art pen, Nyx orange blusher Kerastase elixir ultime, and maybelline eye tattoos.
smashbox quad eyeshadow set, smashbox eyeliner
 A smashbox eyeshadow quad (I was SO surprised and excited she sent me this, my first smashbox make up) Sephora liquid eyeliner, a smashbox eyeliner, a presitage eyeliner and a lip brush.
baby lips, eos lip balm, wet n wild lipstick, revlon lip butter
 These products above are some that I requested and was super excited to try, Baby Lips lip balm, Eos lipbalm, wet n wild lipsticks and revlon lip butters (these weren't on sale in the UK at the time)
Some funny and random things like perfume samples, a fake fly haha, bobby pins...a letter..
buxom lipstick
My most anticipated product...Buxom lipstick in Bombay!
I'm so pleased with everything she sent me and superrrr grateful she did this swap with me and I can't wait to try everything. Yep, I've avoided using most of them till I had done this post.
I have done swaps before in the past and I love them, there exciting and fun. I'm one of those people that loves to shop for others, buying presents and making sure they LOVE everything.
Also like Andrea said, swaps are a great way to meet people and I too have felt like I've made a friend. Our never ending chats about shopping and make up...and everything else..priceless! If you have never done a swap before....do one! It's definitely a great experience.
