It’s that time again! As another round of Pretty Little Beauty Swap comes to a close, it is time to linkup and share your PLBS experience. Linking up is a mandatory part of this program, but I love seeing what everyone received and reading their posts. It honestly sometimes even gives me an idea of things to try.
Wow! I truly feel so blessed. I have never received such a sweet and generous package of goodies. Let’s get real we set a budget, I stuck to it and Miss Meagan so did not! She so spoiled me! I am seriously 12 hours later still in pure shock! Opening these packages every round is like Christmas morning to me. When I opened this box I was not sure whether to cry or to scream, so I screamed. Neighbors all around most likely heard this, but I couldn’t help it due to how excited I was when I saw all of these goodies. Meagan seriously did not have to do all this and I have expressed my gratitude to her in an email that started with “Holy Freaking Crap.”
Normally those words don’t come out of my mouth, but I was so flustered and shocked that this was all I could keep saying. Wondering what has me so up in arms? Well grab a cup of coffee because due to how much she sent me this is going to be a long post! Check out what Meagan sent me for this round of Pretty Little Beauty Swap!
Becca Radiant Satin Foundation in Sand
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
Deborah Lippman Polish in Mermaid’s Dream
Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigment in 35 Breaking Bronze
Wet n’ Wild Megaslick Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Colour in 161A Made for You

NYX Wonder Pencil in WP01 Light/Clair
Covergirl The Super Sizer Mascara in 800 Very Black
Master of Beauty Essentials Brush kit: Foundation, Buffing, Contour, & Eye shadow Brush
Pink & Gold Heart Makeup Bag
I have to say I know being my partner is tough because of me having so much makeup, but Meagn looked at is as she was providing me with products to use on clients. Little did she know that I would be keeping 95% of this for myself! I say 95% because I am giving the Too Faced Chocolate bar palette & shadow insurance to my mom! Her birthday was actually Monday so she was super excited that I was passing these along to her. I love my Chocolate bar palette and am so excited to share this with my mom! She is in love with these products!
The Becca foundation! Yes I said BECCA foundation, is amazing! The color sand is way too light for me due to my recent beach trip, but mixing it with my Stila Aqua Glow Perfecting Bronzer about half and half makes it the perfect shade. I can’t wait to wear it a few more days to really get a feel of how it wears. I will be doing a review of this for those of you wondering if it will work on oily skin.
I have been eyeing this Maybelline mascara & pigment ever since they came out. I am sucker for mascara and actually just about bought this one the other day! I can’t wait to test it out and review it! I have honestly wondered if these pigments would hold up to my standards ever since Maybelline launched them. I am such a lover of bronze shades and was super excited that Meagan chose this one for me! I swatched it and have to say it is simply gorgeous! Spritz your brush with MAC fix + and it is simply perfection!
This bag is perfection as well! I love the design of it and already have it in my handbag! Speaking of perfection! I love this Rimmel powder and have used it for years now! However, a product that I have been looking for an unable to find locally is this Wet n’ Wild balm stain! This is seriously is a gorgeous color and I know I will be buying more! I also have not tried this wonder pencil, but it has been on my list for some time. I think it does a great job at helping fix lipstick mistakes where you over line your lips without giving you the dreaded “concealer lips.”
Finally let’s talk brushes & nail polish! M.O.B. is not a brand I am familiar with. I mentioned to Meagan that I am picky about brushes and primarily use high-end brands. Not sure where she found this brand, but these are seriously good brushes. I used the foundation brush to blend out concealer and it was perfect! Heard of Deborah Lippman? I admit on my many Sephora shopping escapades I never have tried this brand. However, the name Mermaid’s Dream is spot on. It is a gorgeous shade of sea foam green with blue glitter. I painted my nails last night with this and it is super cute!
Thanks so much to Meagan for completely making my week! Work has been crazy for both of us and I am so glad I was able to get to know her and share this experience with her! I hope all of you have as amazing of a round as I did! I truly can’t wait to see what all you received!
