Tales of a Pale Face US Beauty Swap

Not long ago I signed up to a beauty swap over on Tales of a Pale Face. I asked for an international swap and hoped that it would be someone from the US, as I've never been and have lusted over the products they have, you can't get over here, for so long! My wishes came true and I was paired with the lovely Stef from Beautiful Beakers who lives in Boston. 

After chatting for a few weeks, telling each other what our likes/dislikes are, setting a budget and a send by date, not long later, my parcel came! I'm absolutely over the moon with it! So many great products from so many brands I've never tried! Although I did feel a little bad as my money didn't stretch as far as Stef's did, I guess you can get more for your money in the US! 

Starting off with Milani, I got a gorgeous rose powder blush, I've had my eye on these for so long! I also got a beautiful berry shade lipstick and a lovely pink lipgloss. I'm so obsessed with these and the packaging is to die for! 

Next I got some pieces from Wet N Wild, a gorgeous eyeshadow palette with some fab shades! I love that it has the area of the eye you should use them on, I also got 3 separate eye shadows, all in my favourite neutrals. Also 2 lipsticks, one in a red shade and one in pink. 

From Covergirl I got a mascara, I've been eager to try something from Covergirl and the mascara sounds great! From NYX I got an individual eyeshadow in a gorgeous navy shade and a liquid eyeliner in a nice brown shade. 

From ELF I got a tone correcting palette which looks so good! I get a very red face so I'm excited to use this! I also got an HD blush in a lovely dusky pink shade. 

Finally as my birthday was over the period of the swap, Stef included a lovely little gift which was a miniature Tarte matte lip tint which is divine! 

I'm so thankful to Stef for picking me out such lovely pieces, don't forget to check out her blog Beautiful Beakers
