Blog Swap with Abigail from Shrinking Wallet

S1

As most of you probably already know, I was lucky enough to head overseas to Japan late last year. Abigail from Shrinking Wallet (and if you don't know who Abigail is, then get you had better go check her blog out right now!) contacted me asking if I wanted to do a swap! Abigail was heading over to the US for the holidays, so we could share beauty products that we don't normally get in Australia!

Firstly, I want to say that Abigail was an amazing swap partner! She was always contactable, and she got me everything on my wishlist! (Wish I could have done the same for her, but it was so hard finding things in a non-English speaking country!) So a big thank you to Abigail!

All the goodies I received. Spoiler alert: I love everything!


 

S3

Lancome Color Design in Hotness
Swatched Below!

I was so excited when I pulled this out! Firstly, I have only a small collection of high end products, and nothing at all makeup wise from Lancome, so I'm feeling very special already! Secondly, the colour is amazing! It's definitely a colour I will wear! She picked the perfect colour! 

S4

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Obsessed
Swatched Below!

This was one of the products on my wishlist! I had no colour preference, as I didn't want to put her in a tight spot in case the colour I wanted was sold out. But, to be honest, I was secretly hoping for Obsessed, so she chose very well! I'm totally in love with this already!

S5

Covergirl Flamed Out Mascara

I think Australia has only just had this released, but I'm someone who never buys mascara for themselves, so I'm happy to get this! I've heard really amazing things!

S6

Maybelline Baby Lips in Quenched and Peach Kiss

Ohhh yay, I'm so happy to get this! The Australian Baby Lips are definitely different to those released to the rest of the world, and I have no idea why! They look very different and I bet they feel very different, too! I'm really excited to try these out, so look forward to a comparison post!

S7

Zoya Polish in Dream, Essie Polish in Bazooka, Milani Polish in Pink Flare
Swatched Below!

Zoya was another thing on my wishlist! Their products are really difficult to get here in Australia, but I already have a fair few so I thought I'd be safe and ask for one from the newest collection! Abigail picked Dream, which is a truly gorgeous colour! She also picked me up a beautiful bright Essie (which I adore!) and an adorable Milani polish! This will be my first ever Milani, so I'll be excited to see how it goes!

S8

Covergirl Bombshell Shine Shadow in Ooh La Lilac
Swatched Below!

I was so excited to get this! This is something I'm almost certain we don't have in Australia yet (please correct me if I'm wrong since now I want more!) and so it's pretty cool to try out! I've already tried it out a few times and have been so impressed!

S9

Sephora Makeup Case

Ohhh I love my makeup cases! My sister was a tad jealous, as she is also a big fan of makeup cases! 


S10

Samples Galore!

Abigail also threw in a few samples; a Gucci Guilty EDT sample, a Noir Tease sample, a Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer sample (score, can't wait to try this!) and a Phyto Paris Express Conditioner sample! 

S11

Swatched: Lancome Hotness, Urban Decay Obsession, Covergirl Ooh La Lilac
s12

Swatched: Zoya Dream, Essie Bazooka, Milani Pink Flare

Firstly, a giant thank you to Abigail for doing a swap with me! I absolutely loved everything I got, and I'm feeling very spoiled right now! I'll definitely be doing some reviews on these products shortly, so stay tuned!
Abigail - if you ever want to swap again, definitely let me know, as you're a fab swap partner!

If you haven't checked out Abigail's blog Shrinking Wallet, do it now! She's a gorgeous Aussie blogger! If you want to see what I got Abigail from Tokyo, check out here post here.

Have you tried out any of these products before, if so, what did you think?
