A Package From Canada

I said on Tuesday that I would try and make my next post a happy one - well it most certainly is - Yesterday I received a lovely swap parcel from the lovely Michelle from Lipstick Rules :)
Myself and Michelle have been sending packages backwards and forwards for nearly a year now and this was the latest thankfully it only took a few weeks unlike the last one which took 4 months lol
Anyways she was super generous and sent me a huge batch of goodies :)

First of all she sent a lovely card with the sweetest message in it - I really appreciated it so very sweet and some goodies including a Pecan Praline Bath treat which smells amazing, MAC Pigment in Partylicious, some Chanel samples, a Sephora lipgloss and some Go Smile Touch Up Smile Perfecting Ampules - I think these are for breath freshening,and tooth whitening - I can't wait to try them
She also sent me some Milani and Nyx goodies, and 2 NYC Blushable Creme Sticks in Plaza Pink and Big Apple Blush which I can't wait to play with, and a Face Atelier Shimmer Dust in I think Snake Eyes - OMG this looks amazing very like MAC Blue Brown pigment :)

She also got me some bits from Maybelline Eye Studio - we have some of this range but not in my opinion the best bits - I was lucky enough to get a gel eyeliner in Blackest Black and a brush, and two marbelized eyeshadow duos in 50 Tantalizing Teal and 80 Sinful Sinnamon, and a quad in 60 Spirited Seas

She was also kind enough to send my some more goodies from Canadian brands including Faded Violet nail polish by Joe Fresh, two eyeshadows also by Joe Fresh in Pale Pink and Chocolate, an Annabelle trio eyeshadow in Amazon, and an Annabelle small shader brush. She also sent me two items by Lise Watier - a brand I've been very interested in trying - she sent me an Eye Shine Pencil in Lime and a Hydra Shine Lip Stain in Peche which I can't wait to wear with a tan - it's fabulous peachy coral shade

I am so, so grateful to Michelle for sending me such fabulous goodiesxx If you haven't ever done a swap I would thoroughly recommend them, as well as getting some lovely new things you really make new cyber friends across the globe :)
Thanks Michelle you are an angel x If anyone would like any review or swatches on anything I've received please let me know xx
