Beauty Swap with Those Stars That Shine

Hello Everyone!

Today I have a super exciting blog post for everyone! My lovely friend Sarah from the blog Those Stars That Shine and I decided to do a beauty swap. I live in the states while she lives on Scotland so we have access to different make up brands. Sarah's blog is one of my absolute favorites and she always leaves such nice comments on my blog so I highly recommend you check her blog out! I adore everything that she has sent me and I cannot wait to do some reviews and some compare and contrast posts. Anyways, here is the exciting part where I show you what Sarah got me! Once again thank you so much Sarah! I love all of it!

Everything came in the super cute green and striped box. Inside was a bunch of colorful confetti and then all the goodies were wrapped in tissue paper! Some of the things had cute little messages on them saying things like this product is her favorite scent or that this color is beautiful! I thought these were such a cute little touch.













 Sarah includes some cameral candy and a Scotland keychain which is already on my keys and a super cute post card! I thought this was such a nice touch. I already finished all of the cameral candy and they were absolutely delicious. 


 Next, Sarah got me a few things From Make Up Academy or MUA for short. First thing she got me from MUA is a 12 shadow palette in Undressed. It has a bunch of great neutral colors. Next, she got me a MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Reckless. I swatched this on my hand and it was so pigmented! I can't wait to see how long it lasts on the lips. Lastly, she got me the MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter. I have already tried this and oh my god it is amazing! Look out for a review soon.



Bourjois is the next brand, I got a few pieces from. I received a blush in Golden Lilac. It is a pretty   lilac with gold shimmers. I really like how this smells, I know weird. Next, I got a Color Edition 24H Cream to Powder Texture in 6801. This made me think of the Maybelline Color Tattoos so look out for a comparing or possible dupe post about this! I also got a Mega Liner in Extra Large Dark Black. I already tried this and it is amazing for winged eyeliner looks! Lastly,  I got a color Boost in Orange Punch. This color is gonna be awesome for summer!


I was so excited when I saw this little Topshop pack. I have been dying to try some Topshop make up. In this neon yellow pack came a cream blush in Morning Dew and a lipstick in Rio Rio. I've actually never tried a cream blush before so I am super excited that my first one is a Topshop one. The lipstick is  bright red color. The packaging on both of these is so cute!


Soap and Glory is a brand I could get at Sephora but the price difference between the UK and America are nuts. The American prices are three times as much! Sarah was so nice and send me a few body products and a few make up bits! For the body stuff, I got a Clean, Girls Body Wash, The Righteous Butter Body Moisturizer, Hand Food Hand Cream and a Sugar Crush Body Buttercream. I always see Zoella talk about the Sugar Crush so I am so excited to try it out! For make up bits, Sarah sent me Sexy Mother Pucker (nice play on words there!) Lip Lacquer in Riot which is an absolutely beautiful red and a Smoulder Kohl Liner in Superblack which I have yet to try out. 


 Lastly, she sent me a few other bits and pieces. I got a Body Wash in Strawberry by The Body Shop which smells so fresh and delicious! I also got a Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer which I asked for because it is amazing and I wish we could get it in the states! I also got a Seventeen Phwoarr Paint Concealer which Sarah says in her favorite so I am excited to try this out! Lastly, I got a Deluxe lipstick in Prohibition which is a nice cherry color.


Thank you so much Sarah! I honestly could not be happier. I love doing beauty swaps because it allows you try out new brands and favorites of other bloggers which is so awesome. You all should check out Sarah's blog Those Stars That Shine!

Lots of Love,

  12. This is a great idea. Most of the blogs I read or videos I watch contain products that are hard for me to get, I'm sure you find this issue as well. Great blog and I love your witty blog name. Great work!
