If you follow me on YouTube,
you know that I've been doing regular swaps
with Karolina aka ohfaciq for a while now.
I'm truly spoiled by swapping with her....not only
do I get goodies from across the pond
(she lives in London) AND also get goodies
when she travels back home in Poland,
but I also get her awesome & fun friendship.
We've been having a blasts with these swaps.
So here is my latest goodie box.
GOSH eyeshadow trio in Golden Sea
I've not worn this as of yet, but I am absolutely
in love with the cool spring tones of this trio.
I'll be sure to post an eye look with this.
Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pens in Navy, Black & Purple
These I actually requested from Karolina.
I'd heard alot of about them, and since I'm such a fan
of the felt tip eyeliner, I had to give these a go.
The tip is SO fine and they go on flawless.
They did run a bit on me, but I've got watery eyes,
so I can't say how they would work on anyone else.
I top them with eyeshadow and they don't budge.
I love them!
GOSH Varnishes in Gasoline, Frou-Frou, & Blue Metallic
GOSH is always on my swap list.
They've got some really stunning colors,
and the formula is great.
Gasoline had been on my list for a while,
and she found it for me, YAY!
It is a bold shimmery Violet, SUPER pretty.
Frou-Frou is a intense shimmery cool Pink,
I wish I had this one for Valentine's, it is a winner.
Metallic Blue, WOW.
An icy teal, this color is SO hot for spring!
Even though I had specifically requested Gasoline,
I think Blue Metallic is my favorite of the trio.
Model's Own in
Tangerine Queen, LimeLight, Beth's Blue, Buff Pink, Orangeade
Model's Own is another one of those absolutely fantastic
UK based companies. I own several polishes from them,
thanks to Karolina. I haven't tried a polish yet, that I didn't
absolutely love the formula.
and the color selection is AWESOME!!
Model's Own is definitely in my 5 top polish brands.
I picked these particular shades in preparation
for Spring & Summer. I'm going to love using these.
Eyeko Polishes in
Lilac Polish, Military Polish, Petite Polish & Vampira Polish
These are so cute! I'm loving the bottle and the packaging.
These are my 1st Eyeko polishes, YAY!
Though I love them all, being a vampire lover,
naturally my favorite is the Vampira Polish.
Black jelly packed with red glitter, what's not to love?
The rest of the colors are all great for Spring and
I am eager to use them.
The formula is incredibly smooth,
and some only needed a single coat.
Sensique Polishes in #235 & #237
NAILED Polish by Sleek in Geisha Seal
Sensique, if I remember correctly, is from Poland.
I've got a few others from previous swaps.
Again, I can't rave enough on these formula's,
they are really good.
I am not a big fan of Red shades unless it is the
siren; in your face, smut Red.
This nails it (no pun intended)
Geisha Seal is hot, HOT, and went on flawless in a single coat.
Lastly, she sent me a re-fill on my new love,
BOOTS Oil-Free Mattifying Lotion.
Most Target's carry Boots, but not this particualr product,
so Karolina has been kind enough to supply me a new bottle whenever I run low.
She also sent
Pure Nature's White Tea face mask,
which I tried for the first time last week, and it is AWESOME!!
Tea, it really does work wonders, inside and out.
So, that's it for this swap, but I've already started a new list,
as I am sure she has too!
