Recently, I dabbled in a beauty box swap with my friend Sara. I thought I'd give you guys a peek into what I got and my first impressions. The budget was £35. Lets get that box opened...
Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser | From what I see so far, I can already tell this is set to be a firm favourite. It really does keep your skin looking 'poreless'. It makes my skin feel super soft and its made the foundation on my face look a lot better. Its early early days but its looking good.
Maxfactor Creamy Blush in 'Soft Murano' | The colour is a winner. Its a brick red with pink undertones - Thats the best way to describe this colour. Its beautiful. The formula so far does not seem to be drying, it seems to apply evenly. I do love a good cream blush. I find for dry skin types like myself, they put a bit of dew back into the desert that is my face. And this one is very pretty.
Bourjois Highlighting Powder | Said to be the dupe rocking a cheaper price tag to the infamous Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders, I am going to say - I am excited to be giving this a try. It looks like a fine powder thats far from chalky. And its a beautiful pristine white with a bit of shimmer to it. I like a highlight that shimmers. They catch the light so beautifully. And who doesn't love a good dupe?! I will keep you updated on this one…
Urban Decay 24hr glide on pencil in 'Gunmetal' | Yep. She spoilt me. Oh my. Its something I have been itching to try for absolutely ages and she gave it to me as a gift. This snazzy number will be seeing a lot of love. I love a good grey eyeliner, so this will be right at home. I am looking forward to rocking the colour on my eyes. Grrr. Love. It. Dearly.
Bath Gels from Sephora | Last but not least, some really cute bath gels from Sephora. Oh my. I think I am drowning in cuteness. Those dogs!?! I don't know if I could bare to see them dissolve in the water. Call me a drama queen but hey I am a sucker for cuteness. You should have seen the packaging? It was stupidly cute as well.
Its safe to say she did a super good job. She knows me SO well. I love doing beauty box swaps with friends, just because you know they know what you like.
