Valentine's Day Swap Goodies!


The package when I first opened it!

Today, I went shopping with my Mum for my birthday. When I got home, I was delighted to see that a package was waiting for me at home! I was even more excited when I realised that it was my package from Marie, who runs the lovely blog MCMiki's Beauty Blog! (You can check out her awesome blog here!)

She signed up for my Valentine's Swap, and luckily we got paired up! 



Cute wrapping!

It was wrapped up in one big present, I was a bit excited by that!


Marie sent me a lovely birthday card! It's so sweet she included this, and she wrote in it that she hoped I would receive this before my birthday to make it extra special! I actually did, which was lovely!


Everything was all packed into this gorgeous cosmetic bag! I'm loving the cute little studs! It's perfect for me and definitely my style!


The contents of the bag! Exciting! As you can see she wrote little descriptions on everything for me! I actually forgot to give her descriptions of my products. 



All my new goodies!

Wow, she got me some amazing things! I'm so excited for everything!



Barry M Nail Paint in Amethyst Glitter and Watermelon

I'm loving the colours she sent me! I'm so happy she included a Gelly as well, so excited! I already have two other Barry M Nail Paints from a previous swap, and love them, so it's great to have another two!


Gosh Nail Glitter in Ruby Red

Ohhh this looks awesome! I've actually never tried anything like this before, so it will be interesting to use! The colour is also amazing!



Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate
Oh my gosh, I'm so excited! I see this all over the blogosphere, and I hear only good things, so I cannot wait to give this a go! 



Accessorize Blush Box

I've been lusting after something from Accessorize for a long time, so I'm really happy she included something! The packaging is so cute, and the colour looks beautiful, I can't wait to try it out! 



Sleek MakeUP True Colour Lipstick in OMG

I already have two lipsticks from Sleek already, so I'm very pleased to get more! This is an absolutely gorgeous colour, and I can't wait to wear it!



Rimmel London Apocalips in Big Bang

Oh. My. God! Don't mind me, I'm just hyperventilating over here! These babies have absolutely exploded on the blogosphere, and I did a quick test of these before I had to go out again, and they look amazing! The colour is simply gorgeous!



NYC Individual Eyes in Smokin'

Even though this is created for Blue Eyes, Marie wasn't 100% sure on what my eye colour was, but she picked neutral colours to be safe. I love neutral colours, so this is perfect for me! I love this little palette, it seems to have everything, so this will definitely come in handy!

-- 

Wow, I'm absolutely thrilled with everything she sent me! A giant thank you to Marie for everything, she chose brilliantly! I really hope she loves everything I sent her too!

I will definitely be reviewing these goodies soon, so let me know if there's anything in particular you would like to see sooner than usual!

Have you tried any of these products before? If so, what did you think? Did you take part in my Valentine's Swap? If you have, share your blog post with me so I can see what you got, too!
