Beauty swap with Alessia

A little while back I responded to one of Alessia's (Whispers from Angels) tweets asking if anyone fancied doing a beauty swap. I love swapping - it's a great way to try out new products, and also get to know a bit more about another blogger.

We set a budget of £30 and planned to send at the end of February. I knew that she liked MAC lipsticks, so wanted to get one of those for her and also something from the Topshop makeup line as I'd read that she wanted to try it out.


My parcel arrived last week, and I was so excited when I opened it. It was packaged up beautifully, with a little card on top. When I lifted the bubble wrap off, I was amazed at all of the goodies underneath! 

She included: 2 Topshop nail polishes in pastels shades (perfect for spring), glitter nail art sprinkles, Lush Happy Hippy shower gel, Lush Ocean Salt face scrub, Sleek Lash Out mascara, Sleek rose gold blusher and DGJ Organics Berutti hair oil. 


I am so pleased with everything included! I've not tried many Sleek products before so am really intrigued to try out the mascara and Topshop make some of my nail polishes. 

I want to say a big thank you to Alessia for such a fab parcel. You can see everything I got for her over on her blog.

Have you tried any of these products before?
