Beauty Swap with the Lovely MakeupLand2011

Hey everyone,

A while ago I tweeted about some products I couldn't get my hands on in Ireland. That day I got a lovely email off Chie (MakeupLand2011) from the United States suggesting that we do a swap. I love the idea of beauty swaps as it's a good way to try stuff out that's not readily available in your own country and there also great fun. I've done two swaps before which I really enjoyed. Of course I was only too happy to take part in this one.

Chie is the nicest girl ever and so genuine. If you haven't checked out her YouTube channel you should definitely have a look. I love her videos!!! They are so informative and there's everything from step by step tutorials to reviews etc. I was really excited about this swap. We organised it about two weeks ago now. It actually doesn't seem that long ago come to think about it. Last Friday Chie emailed me to tell me that she sent my package.

Imagine my surprise, after I came home from work on Wednesday my package had arrived. After a quick glance I realised it was from Chie. I was beyond excited about it. As it was delivered on Friday I really wasn't expecting it so soon. It was such a awesome treat.

When I opened my package I was left speechless. I was so shocked with all the lovely goodies she sent me. I wasn't expecting so much.

Here is what the lovely Chie sent me...

Victoria's Secret 'Pink' Beach Bag
This bag is gorgeous. Here in Ireland we don't have a Victoria's Secret so I was so happy to see this bag. Purple is also my favourite colour.

Victoria's Secret 'Pink' Water Bottle
 I love this water bottle!!! I really like the design. It would be definitely something I'd buy if I seen it in a store.

I got such a surprise when I seen what was inside this bottle!!

Bath and Body Works PocketBac Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel in Raspberry Frost Donut, Lunch Box and Lemon Pomegranate

Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Lipgloss in Slice Of Heaven and Passion Fruit

EOS Lip Balms in Honeysuckle Honeydew and Summer Fruit

Sephora By OPI Nail Varnish in Already Famous

NYX Blush in Pinky and Peach

Covergirl 'Pure Romance' Eyeshadow Palette

NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Beige and NYX High Definition Eyeshadow Base

Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette

I don't know how everything fit into that water bottle but they did!!!

I got this gorgeous card of Chie. It gave me a bit of background on all the products that she chose for the swap. She also sent me a assortment of sheet masks (above picture) which are popular in the states. I'm really looking forward to trying them out.

I bet you can see why I was left lost for words. Everything looks amazing. Thank you so much Chie for the amazing products and gifts. We will have to do a swap again in the future. All these products will last me for ages I bet. I will definitely keep you posted on how I get on. I've used a bit of the EOS lipbalm in Honeysuckle Honeydew and I love it...the packaging is so cute.

I'm really looking forward to trying everything out and will let you girls know my thoughts!
