Beauty Swap Box With Coleen

This blog post is definitely my most exciting one so far! This week, I did my first swap box with the lovely Coleen! She also has a blog which you can check out HERE.

We both agreed on a budget first of all and then decided to fill a box full of beauty bits to send in the post to each other! We were both super duper excited to send our parcels and for the other person's to arrive on our doorsteps, as we had no idea what the other person had sent us! It felt like Christmas!
Coleen's parcel from me arrived 2 days before mine did and that made me even more excited! It was definitely the best thing to come home from school to!

If you want to see the products I sent to Coleen, check out her blog post HERE, I shall now tell you about the amazing items she sent to me!

Coleen's parcel arrived in a heck load of bubble wrap (as we were both so worried that things would get damaged, but thankfully they didn't as the postman was on our side!) however, I soon tore that off haha! Her items were in the cutest mint and white box with lots of confetti inside with the loveliest little card.

Coleen sent me 10 items and I am so grateful for all of them! Some of these things I probably would've never tried if she hadn't sent them to me and I honestly just wanted to put everything on as soon as I opened the box! Here's what she sent me:

Lush Bubble Bar Slice - 'Pop In The Bath'

For some bizarre reason, I have never tried a Lush Bubble Bar as I always go for the bath bombs! However, this one looks super pretty and I can't wait to use it. It will certainly come in useful whilst I am taking my exams and want a nice, relaxing bath! (sorry for the broken flower on top haha)

Maybelline Dream Sun Bronzing Powder With Blush

This bronzer and blush, not only look pretty in the packaging, but they look really natural on the skin and will certainly be perfect for the warmer months!

No7 Precision Lip Pencil - 'Soft Blush'

I've never owned a lip pencil but, after trying this, I'm wondering why on Earth not! I adore the colour and it matches pretty much perfectly with my new Little Mix Jade Collection Lipstick! It is super easy to apply and I love the fact that it is wind up!

No7 Stay Perfect Duo Nail Colour - 'Hot To Trot'

I'm so happy about this item and the fact that it arrived in one piece haha! Its basically 2 nail polishes in 1 and I think this will be perfect for the warmer months because the colours are so summery! The pink and gold match really well and I'm looking forward to pairing them together by wearing the gold on an accent nail.

Avon Super Extend Extreme Mascara

I have never really owned any makeup from Avon, for some reason, so I was really excited to try this, plus, trying new mascaras is one of my favourite things! This honestly makes my lashes look amazing with great volume and separation!

Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo - '65 Pink Gold'

I love all of the products, however, I think this one may be my favourite! The Maybelline Colour Tattoos always look and sound amazing and I can't believe I've never bought one! This pink colour is SO 'me', so great job Coleen haha! It is so super pigmented and lasts all day! I absolutely love it and I can see myself investing in more shades!

Color Essential Lipstick - '832 Kiss Pearl'

This is another thing that I think might be one of my favourites! This lipstick, once again, is such a 'me' colour. Its a pale pink and a really natural shade, meaning it will be so easy to wear! I wore it today with the Colour Tattoo and it matches so well!

Barry M Natural Shadow & Primer Glow Palette 2

I actually had this product in my basket when in Superdrug to buy for Coleen, before I swapped it for something else haha (great minds think alike!) I love the shades in it and, because they're really natural, I will certainly get lots of wear out of them all as neutral eyes are my favourite.

Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover

This is something I have heard nothing but amazing things about online so I can't wait to see what results it gives! Now, I will be able to wear my Colour Tattoo, Barry M palette, Avon Mascara and then take it all off with this haha! I actually used it this evening and it did an amazing job!!

Clinique Superprimer

I've never used a primer before which is ridiculous as I'm always thinking about how much I could do with one haha! I used this today and I could definitely see the difference! My makeup did not budge!!

So those were all of the things Coleen gave to me! I couldn't be more grateful so I owe the biggest THANK YOU to Coleen for agreeing to do this swap box with me and sending me the most gorgeous things! This whole thing was super duper exciting to take part in and I had the most fun shopping for your items, even if I was in the store for about 5 years haha! Sending you loads and loads of love!

Make sure you take a look at the things I sent to Coleen and check out her other blog posts as they are rather fabulous indeed!

Which is your favourite item out of everything Coleen sent me?

Love, Emily :) xx
