Secret Santa #3- Australian Christmas Beauty Box Swap

Hi!

This post is quite exciting, for me anyway! Doing a Christmas box swap/ Secret Santa was a first for me this year but lucky for me, I took part in 3 of them! This one however was done over seas with the wonderful Nalini behind the blog; Made up Maiden from Australia. This swap was organised by Jasmine from Sweetaholic-Beauty so thanks for organising it!!

First up, we decided on a price and what we wanted to send eachother, like what brands/products we couldn't easily access where we lived. I wanted to try something from The face of Australia and definitely try the baby lips lip balm fro Maybelline. The price we agreed on was £20/$30.

These are what I got in the post from Nalini:




Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Glow (Pink Blast)- Love love love! Will be carried everywhere with me, especially on placement J
BYS Blush Duo (03 Miss Pink)- A girl can never have too much blush, so this is great. I’m particularly loving the darker pink.
Natio Rich Colour Creme gloss (Calm)- Couldn’t have got a better shade, as In like the girly tone of pink.
Natio Liquid Eyeliner (Plum/Black)- I am an eyeliner person, and I always buy black, so I love this alternative colour which is a dark purple which I already have on now haha
BYS eye shadow palette (Dessert Sands)- I know browny/golden/sandy colours suit me more and I feel I can wear them a whole lot for a suitable look. Beautiful shades!
Savvy Automatic Eyeliner (Jade)- Was excited to try this brand and I love eyeliners. Not my usual colour, but it is pretty wearable. I love the fact it comes with a mini sharpener and corrector. So cool!
Innoxa lipstick (Marigold)- he shade goes well with my skin tone and leave lovely sheen. Perfect for New Years.
Natio meditate natural perfume (Bakhu Attar)- When I opened the box, I spelt this gorgeous fragrance. I thought maybe it was sprayed with perfume and really wish I had that scent to keep in perfume form. The last thing I pulled out was this, so was very happy I got it. It smells to calming, can’t wait to use!
Face of Australia Mascara (Black)- I asked to try something from this brand is was very happy as you can’t get that here. The mascara end is different to my other and very fine to give that extreme curl, so I like!
Essence Stay with me lasting Lipgloss (09 Hottest Pink)- The pink of this is lovely to just watch, but just as nice a shade on the lips. The pipette at the end is so cute and I love it for that more than anything haha.


I loved everything I got and really appreciate it all especially coming all the way from down under! I would love to do more swaps in the future, maybe from the US next time. So let me know if you would like to do so in the new year.

Thanks again Naliini, I hope you like what I got you :)
