International Beauty Swap!!

This post has been in the works for a while now so I'm really excited about finally writing it. The idea of an international beauty swap really appealed to me as here in the UK high street or drugstore makeup is quite expensive and there is a limited number of brands to choose from compared to America which is where the beautiful Deborah from Coffee, Prose, and Pretty Clothes lives. We gave ourselves a limit of £20 (and the equivalent in dollars) to spend on each other so I'm going to show you the lovely bits she got me! 

Wet 'n' Wild Nail Colour in Everybody Loves Redmond
As a big fan of red nail polish I had to try this out straight away! It's such an amazing colour and pigmented too (the picture is of one coat) so I'm really happy with this. I have obviously heard of Wet 'n' Wild but never owned anything by them as I think it's only sold in America so it's really cool to try out their products!

Wet 'n' Wild Eyeshadow Palette in Comfort Zone
I have seen many great reviews about the Wet 'n' Wild eyeshadows but have never tried them myself for the same reason I haven't tried their nail polish (so deprived) so I'm so excited to try these out. The colours are amazing! I like the bottom right one because it is really iridescent and eye catching and it is also the one Deborah told me to check out so I can't wait to use it. I tried to swatch it but my camera didn't do the colour justice. 

Physicians Formula Glossy Stain in Hot Pink
The packaging of this lip stain is like nothing I have seen before! So very very cute! Although the shade is called hot pink this is a lot more purple based which I love because it suits my skin tone really well. I think this will be great for a night out with Topshop's The Damned Lipstick under it. 

Covergirl Lash Exact in Very Black
I already know that I'm going to love this mascara just by looking at the wand. It is very similar to the Max Factor mascaras I love so I'll be interested to see which is a better quality as I think they are the same brand with different names or a sister brands.. something like that! I'm wearing this now and I can say so far so good, my lashes look long and defined.


Lastly in the package along with all these lovely makeup products Deborah sent a letter explaining why she picked each product and what to look out for with each one which I thought was a lovely thoughtful touch.

A big thankyou is needed for Deborah for agreeing to do the swap with me. I love everything you picked, it is all very my kind of product!! I can't wait to read your post on what I got for you and everyone reading this please check out her blog, it is amazing! Not your everyday beauty/fashion blog at all so definitely worth it CLICK HERE
