The second beauty swap that i took part in was run by Lucie from FatBeautyx. She did a brilliant job organising the swap so i want to say a massive thank you to her. I was paired with the lovely Mariette - she isn't a blogger but i will link her twitter if you'd like to check her out as she is a fellow make up obsessive. She put together such a lovely package and i can not wait to try everything out! I also really love that she included a little letter giving me pros and cons of each product which i thought was a really nice touch.

Mariette choose the perfect selection of products for me; she got me the Maybelline Lasting Drama Black Shock Gel Liner which is meant to be a dupe for the Benefit Gel Liner so I'm curious to see what it's like, she also got me Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara which is another mascara I've wanted to try for a while.

The Seventeen Cheek Stamp in Bashful is another item that I'm really curious about to try out - Mariette also told me it was a in between blush/bronzer shade so I'm looking forward to trying it out. The ELF Mineral Eyeshadow in Elegant is a lovely neutral shade which i think will make a lovely base colour - normally, mineral eyeshadows aren't something I'd go for because I'm clumsy and I'll probably end up with it everywhere but it looks really nice and I'm definitely going to try it out.

There also a I Heart Make Up Wow Gloss in the shade No Need to Panic which is a lovely pink shade and she also included lots of samples too which i thought was a lovely addition - these included Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, Benefit Coralista Lipgloss and also samples from Bioderma, Phyto and some others.

I love the package she put together and I'm looking forward to trying everything out and 'm sure you'll see them all featured on my blog at some point. A massive thank you to Mariette for such a lovely package, I'm really excited to try everything out.

Have you tried any of these products?

    2. OMG Natalie this post is so sweet, I am so happy you liked it as much as I liked mine ;), love the bronzer as matte ones are not that easy to find (and I am not gonna start talking about how I love the brushes cuz it would be too long)..... Thanks again to Lucie for organizing this swap as I got pretty goodies and a new lovely blog to follow ! wishing you, all the Merry Lovely things for Xmas ! x
