International Beauty Swap with Victoria Earls

Victoria Earls and I have been planning this International Beauty Swap for over six months! Crazy right? I have to say though, it was well worth the wait. If you are in the mood for watching me waffle on with no makeup on and be incredibly tired.. watch this video on YT :P If you would rather not see me being a complete tool…read on!

I just want to give a run down of all the products because there are so so many (spoilt much?) and I haven’t even had a chance to try them all yet!


A couple of exciting palettes that are perfectly travel sized! The ever coveted Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (RRP $29.00 USD) was probably my shining beacon of light. I’ve used this awesome palette almost every single day since opening Vic’s package. It’s awesome, love it.

I have dabbled in the Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow & Eyebrow Palette in Disappear til Tomorrow (RRP £4.00) and I can see what the fuss about! I saw this one on Raspberry Kiss’ blog back in May of this year and thought it was a great palette with so many shades to try!

I’m a big fan of Too Faced products, and this one comes with an iPhone 5 cover. Score! The Too Faced Jingle All the Way (RRP $25.00) has awesome candy shades and a built in bronzer that I am looking forward to making some looks with.



These amazing lip shades from Makeup Revolution are super pigmented and the colours are right up my alley, AND they are all only£1.00 a pop!! Vic did an awesome job to say the least. From left to right are: Nude Matte, Depraved, Rebel with a Cause, 100% Vamp and Black Heart.



Some more great lip colours (which all happen to be perfect for this Spring in Oz! #blogpostception). From Left to Right, Rimmel London Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick Shade 06 (not available in Australia :(…)Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Coral in Gold (RRP $9.95), Wet ‘n’ Wild Megalast Lip Colour in Just Peachy (RRP $7.00) and Manhattan Soft Mat Lip Cream (RRP £3.99)





These Rimmel London Scandaleyes Shadow Paints aren’t available in Australia as yet, so I am pretty stoked I get to try these out! Two amazing colours that I will get a lot of use out of too!





Some more awesome eye products. Swatched from left to right: Babara Daly Longwear Eyeshadow in Shimmer Sand, Wet n Wild Mega Liner in Chocolate Brown and Green (RRP $8.00 ea), Collection Extreme in Purple and Avon Color Trend in Ultra Violet. I’ve been loving the Collection Extreme felt tip liner, it’s such a great change from my regular black liner (same with the brown wet n wild liner, it’s awesome!)


Last but not least, delicious candies and an awesome ring!!!

Have you ever considered doing/had an International Swap with another blogger?

    I SO want to do one of these with a US/Oz blogger, there are so many things I need to try that we can’t get in the UK :(

    What an amazing bunch of products! This has definitely got me in the mood to try and get involved in a swap sometime soon.
