Beauty Box Swap

I have always loved reading beauty swap posts, they are probably one of my favourite type of blog posts to read. Recently I came across an Autumn Beauty Swap that was set up by Kat from Tales Of A Pale Face, who was looking for bloggers to pair together for a beauty swap. 

Not having a clue about how to go about arranging a swap myself, I signed up, and I'm so happy I did!
I was paired with the lovely Katrina, from Carousel Diary, who couldn't have been anymore of a better match to me for a swap if I had found her myself. 

We sent each other a few e-mails, letting each other know our likes and dislikes, and we also set a budget and decided to throw in a few of our own favourite items into the swap for each other to try out.

Katrina seemed to have pretty much the same tastes as me when it comes to beauty products, so I really enjoyed picking out things to send her, and hope she's enjoying them as much as I am enjoying hers

Her parcel had actually been sat at home for a few days before I could get to rip it open as I was away and it was killing me that it was there and  wasn't! So needless to say I dove straight into it when I got my hands on it yesterday!

L-R: Wet 'n' Wild Eyeliner/Brow pencils, Avene Ystheal+ eye cream, Bourjois mini polisher and file, Constance Carroll eyeshadow in 71, Wet 'n' Wild H20 Proof Mascara, Wet 'n' Wild Cover All concealer, Wet 'n' Wild Liquid Foundation

I'm so happy with everything Katrina sent me! 
There's a ton of Wet 'n' Wild products here for me to try which I'm so happy about as I've always wanted to try them out and we can't get their stuff here. 

I was also pleased that Katrina included the Avene eye cream in here as I'm quite obsessed with finding one that I like lately! 

The foundation and concealer are a little too dark for me for every day wear, but I'm sure they'll work when I have fake tan on and I actually ran out of a darker foundation for that purpose a while back!
I also got a lovely little note and a necklace too! :)

I've really loved doing this swap, and would love to do more in the future, so if anyone would ever like to do a swap with me get in touch!
