Opening this box today was one of the most exciting moments of my adult life. I seriously felt like I was five years old on Christmas morning. I've read about swaps from makeupalley and other blogs, along with seeing them on YouTube and desperately wanted to participate in one, at least once. A couple months ago I was contacted by a reader of my blog and we have been emailing back and forth since. I consider her a dear friend and can't wait to meet her one day!
In case ya didn't know: A swap is when two people agree on a budget and purchase each other makeup/cosmetic items or trade items that may not work for them.
I wanted to share with y'all the lovely items Azza sent me all the way from Malaysia! :)
Isn't this the cutest box ever?
An adorable note written by one of her children :)
All makeup items from Malaysia! I'm so excited to try them all!!! There is a list below of everything that she got me :)
A swap wouldn't be complete without MAC :)
Azza sent me some AMAZING items!
Dame Blush
Raspberry Swirl Lipstick (LE)
Embrace Me Lip Pencil (LE)
Picture Pink Lipglass (LE)
Gold Mode Pigment (LE)
Reflects Bronze Glitter
She's Got Class Crushed Metallic Pigment

She also sent nine eyeshadows by a brand called Elianto. I glued magnets on the back and placed them in an empty MAC palette I had laying around. They are so buttery and pigmented!!
A present for Mason's first birthday! This touched my heart... so sweet of her to think of my little one :)
I don't know why, but I'm obsessed with the packaging on this headband!
My gorgeous new MAC makeup bag :)

  10. Swaps look like so much fun, I'd love to do one one day but it's hard because I don't have much of a choice for makeup where I live to be able to buy for someone! Azza was so kind and generous, you've gotten amazing products! Those eyeshadows are so pretty.
