American Budget Beauty Swap Haul

I have such an exciting post, well for me anyway. I took part in Naomi’s ‘Budget Beauty Swap’ which had a theme of valentines day, very suitable for the time of year. This swap really appealed to me as there was a possibility of swapping with someone from the US and I had wanted to try a few US brands for a while now. The main rule was to stick to a budget of £10.
I was paired with the lovely Natasha from Bellezakisses who, after a few email exchanges, sent me some absolutely amazing goodies! She obviously went over the budget by adding some bits from herself in addition to the beauty swap, but I am ever so grateful for everything. 
Here’s what she got me wrapped up in two gorgeous pink and red tins:


 EOS Balms: Strawberry sorbet (pink), Summer Fruit (red)
Sugar Kisses: Sugar Lip treatment, Sugar Rose Tinted treatment
Maybeline Whisper: 30 Pin up Peach
Jordana Lipstick: Bahama Bronze
Jordana Lipstick: Lavender Lady (matt)
Milani Lipstick: Pink Love
Cherry Culture Lip Balm: Peach
Outlast Lip Stain: 420


 NYC: Bowling Green, Yankee Blues
Wet n Wild: I’m getting sunburned, Walking on egg shells
Jordana Eye pencils: Bronze Fest, Pecan and Purple

Nail, Mascara, Blush, Chocolates
Zoya polish: Carey
Wet n Wild mascara: Very Black
Milani Baked Blush: Berry Amore
Chocolates: Ghirardelli (dark and caramel) mmm 
I just want to say a great big thanks to Naomi for organising the swap and Natasha for the wonderful things you sent me. I really wanted to try the wet n wild eyeshadows, Milani Blush and EOS balms… got them now!  I love them sooo much! I hope you liked what I got you Natasha 🙂
