So, I made a friend that lives across the country from me. We both share the love for makeup, and I absolutely adore her! Recently she suggested to send a spare product to me, and I got really excited. I was planning on asking for her address around Christmas time so that I could send her something special, but instead, we totally became makeup penpals. Our skin (and taste in lip products) are on opposite ends of the spectrum, so we both have ended up with products that we just don’t or won’t use (or have extra of).
I am leaving for Washington State tomorrow for a little over a week (expect a lack of posts, I’m sorry!), but her package to me came a day early! It was supposed to arrive right after Todd and I hit the road. It was definitely a pleasant surprise!
If you don’t follow Bronze and Blush already, then give it a go right now! She posts pretty much daily, and I love reading every one of them! My little care package will make it out to her once I make it back from Washington :).
She packed it all in one of her ipsy bags, and I am really excited because I needed a small bag for my purse!
Well, isn’t this photo wonderfully out of focus? I took a break from packing to post, so sorry for the lack of photos! I will review all of these products (along with many others I have recently started using) soon!
- Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base
This little sample is just SO CUTE! I am about to go to Etude’s website and die from a cuteness overload. The packaging says that it’s a “light and fluffy” moisturizing makeup base with SPF 25. I’m excited to try it!
- Chella Hello Beautiful Eyes Indigo Blue Eyeliner Pen
I think she got this in an ipsy bag, but I’m not completely sure. Colored eyeliner is right up my alley, and I don’t have a darker, indigo blue. I think this will be great for daily use! I love my stila felt tip eyeliner, so if this one doesn’t smudge, I’ll love it too!
- Smashbox Camera Ready Full Coverage Concealer
This concealer leaned a bit too yellow for me, but I decided to try it anyway. I ended up layering my current concealer over it, and I was impressed! Yay!
- Milani Lipliner in Cherry Pie
I must confess, this is my first Milani product. I really want to pick up some baked blushes sooner or later. I already own two red lipliners, but I think that you can never own too many red lip products! I am excited to try this.
- Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Electric Orange
I am the bright lip queen! I have been itching for an orange lipstick, and this lovely lady answered my prayers. I haven’t tried it yet, but it smells nice. My first red lipstick was from Maybelline, and I liked it!
- Clinique Different Lipstick in A Different Grape
I actually already own this exact lipstick LOL! I will be gifting this one to my mom because I know that she’ll like the shade as much as I do. It’s a nice deep purple. Toni thought I would like this, and I do haha!
- theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer
So, this was the product that she had a spare of. I LOVE IT SO MUCH, IT’S ALREADY ALL OVER MY FACE!!! This is a great highlighter and eyeshadow. It’s gold tinted, perfect for summer, It is my first product from theBalm, and it will definitely not be the last.
Thank you so much Bronze and Blush! I am so excited to use everything you sent!
