Swap with The Lovely Laura Jayn

Again, I am always blown away by the amazing supportive people I meet through this blog. It is nice to be surronded by people that not only share your interests but also your morals. I have been following Laura-Jayn's blog for quite sometime, and I adore it. So when she suggested a swap, I jumped at the opportunity. We set a dollar amount and agreed to send brands that you couldn't get in the receivers country. When her package came I was so excited. She sent me sooo many products I was overwhelmed! They were so well picked too, she actually considered my skin type, colours and preference. If you aren't following Laura-Jayn yet, you definitely should check out her blog here! Here is a look at the things Laura-Jayn sent me! (Pictures are broken down by brand.. there was just so many things!)



She wrapped everything so well! Nothing broke on its trip all the way from England!

4 Face Masks, the little red tin, and pink lip balm


MUA: Heaven and Earth Palette, Lipstick in Shades #4, 12 and 16, Lip Gloss in #5 and Glamour Days Palette


2True: Colour Drench Lipgloss in #4, 3 in 1 Concealer #1, and Smooth Matte Pressed Powder in #1


Sleek: Oh So Special Palette and Blush in Life's a Peach

Collection 2000: Big Fake Mascara in Brown Black, Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair, Cream Puff Lip Cream in Cotton Candy and Blush in Bashfull



Barry M: Dusky Mauve, Blue Moon, Strawberry I/C, Berry I/C, Peach Malba, and Magnetic Burgundy


I love everything she sent me! The stand outs? The powder, concealers and palettes! She did such an amazing job of finding products I would like (you will definitely see some of these in my July favourites!). So excited to dive further into these products!




Hope you enjoyed this post!
