Christmas Swap w/TheStyleDiet Makeup Swatches!

Hi My Loves!!!

As most of you know Anna (TheStyleDiet) and I have formed a friendship over the years on you tube. Our babies are also only one day apart (not planned I swear haha).... so it's rather cool that we are going through the same baby stages at the same time :)

Anyway, on to the actual post. This year for Christmas we decided to do a Christmas swap with each other. Basically we just bought gifts for each others families and seeing as they live in Ireland and we live in the US, we sent things to each other that the other couldn't get in their hometown.

Of course I filmed a video showing the goodies that she sent :)


Here is the makeup that Anna picked out for me (great choices my lovely):

Bourjois Effet 3D Gloss Volume & Shine Elixer #46

This is a really glossy dark pink lipgloss with a slight sparkle to it. Smells fruity and has a brush applicator which I love! It puts down a nice amount of color and is so shiny :) I can't wait to use it!

Bourjois Smoky Eyes Trio in 05 Vintage Rose

This is a nice little trio with a highlight shade and then a soft mauve with a sheen and a deep plum. All are shimmery. Great for blue eyes or green eyes. I wore them all today and they looked really pretty for that sultry plum smokey eye. I forgot to put on my normal eye primer so by the end of the day they did have some creasing but still looked nice and true to color. :)

Next is probably my favorite out of the bunch.....

Bourjois blush in 54 Rose

It's a nice combination between a rosy pink and peach and I think it would work really well on a range of skin tones. Nice and pigmented and I love the small packaging which makes it perfect for throwing in your makeup bag or purse :)

Last but certainly not least.....

17 Lasting Fix Lipstick in Mulled Wine

I wore this today with the Nyx Deep Red liner underneath and it was very pretty. Just a nice deep red lip, perfect for this time of year. It does have a typical lipstick smell but it stayed on nicely and I love the packaging. I remember buying 17 when I was a teenager and lived in England,miso when I saw this lipstick it brought back memories of being a young teen shopping in Boots with all my girlfriends (fond memories)..... Wow I feel old now! Haha!

So there are the makeup bits and swatches as promised. Typical me forgot to take a picture of my makeup for the day, but I did wear all of these items today other than the lip gloss and I loved them all.

A HUGE thank you to Anna and Jonathan for sending such lovely gifts :) I really appreciate it so much love and I hope you like yours as much as I love mine :) I'm so glad we have become such good friends!! Your the bomb diggity dog :)
