My Swap With Vanessa! (@makebelievemua)

posted on: 1.03.2012

This post is seriously a long time in the making. Back in early December (or was it late November? I don't know my dates anymore), me and my friend Vanessa, whom I met at IMATS this past April, decided to do a swap! It was my first swap, so of course I agreed to do it! I was super excited to shop for Vanessa. She's gorgeous and sometimes I think we may be the same person. You can check out her blog post on what I got her right HERE. She also has a really great Youtube channel as well.

Anyways, I received her package December 24th. The same day I left for my cruise. Like, we were literally heading out the door when the mailman knocked on our door with the package. So I savagely ripped it open and was so excited to see what was inside! I was even more excited when I saw what was inside the package.

I don't even know where to begin! Well, as you can see in the picture, she got me two Milani blushes and a Milani nail polish, all of which I love. I've heard great things about Milani blushes, but never got around to purchasing them. And let me just tell you... These blushes are crazy pigmented! I couldn't believe how pigmented these blushes were. Don't worry, I will be posting swatches here on the blog very soon.

She also got me an Urban Decay Stardust lip gloss, which I am also obsessed with! I actually have one in a lighter shade, and almost got this shade. These lip glosses are phenomenal! Swatches of these glosses are coming soon too.

Then she got me something I totally was not expecting. The Yves Saint Laurent Shocking Mascara! Holy crap when I saw this in the box, I almost passed out. Almost. I was so excited! The packaging is so fancy and regal and gold and pretty, and the mascara definitely does not disappoint. I actually wore this mascara all throughout my cruise, and people kept asking me if I was wearing false lashes. It's that good.

Then she also got me this beautiful black quilted purse. I swear, it is like Vanessa knows my thoughts because I have been searching for a new purse after my last purse's strap broke! This is my new favorite bag, and anyone who knows me knows how much I love my crossbody bags. This was the perfect gift!

And last, but certainly not least, is that freaking AMAZING calendar Vanessa custom made for me. This is truly one of the most thoughtful and amazing gifts I have ever received. The calendar is so beautiful, and she incorporated some of my makeup looks into it, along with some inspiring makeup pictures.

This whole swap experience was such a wonderful experience. I had so much fun shopping for Vanessa, and I absolutely loved everything she got me. Thank you so much Vanessa! Swatches & reviews on these products coming soon!
