Awhile back, my awesome blogger friend Weng from Wengiful and I decided to do a swapbox!
We concluded that we would spend a maximum of $40 on the goodies to send to each other.
It was a tough decision on choosing the items to send to each other but in the end I did choose items which thankfully she didnt have, so you can see what I sent her [here]
I pretty much died on the inside, when I opened up the parcel, kind of like opening a Christmas present and seeing a variety of gifts, it just gets you excited :')
Anyways I did receive this parcel before my exam time so it was a great pick-me-up before the dreaded exams.
Obviously the first thing I saw was this Skin79 BB Miniature Set as it was the biggest out of the products. Perfect time to get this set though as I will be going overseas early next year and I will be trying to pack light in terms of makeup! I do have the full sized version of the Hot Pink one and I have been itching to try the other versions so lucky for me!
Next one I picked up was the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Palette. Although I told Weng that Im not a huge fan of shimmery products, I think it was a smart to include a product that you personally like! I love the concept of the All-in-1, as you can use this as multiple things if one doesnt work out for you. I am a huge fan of highlighting so I know I will be using this one a lot next year when the formals and 18th birthday parties start!
The two Hello Kitty products were the reason why we started the swapbox as it was available where Weng was and she was nice enough to get them for me!
As I my main makeup product is eyeliner, she got me the Hello Kitty Eyeliner which will be exciting to try since I still am looking for my hg eyeliner or even a decent one for daily use. I wont be testing it out yet until I finish my current liquid liners!
The second one was the Hello Kitty Lip Balm! I love trying out different lip balms and lets face it, you can never have enough lip balms! The scent reminds me of the Crabtree and Evelyn Rosewater hand cream and I find that it soaks in the lips hydrating it quite well so it doesnt feel like a layer of lip balm doing nothing.
Leaving the best till last, the Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eyebrow Pencil made me jump on the inside. Im nearly out of my current hg eyebrow pencil (Etude House) and Ive been wanting to try out other Korean eyebrow pencils. Cannot wait till I start using this!!
Thanks so much Weng for the swapbox!! Will definitely be up to doing it again in the future :)
