Summer beauty swap parcel

A little while ago, I arranged a summer beauty swap on my blog. Over 30 bloggers signed up to swap goodies with another blogger, and after pairing everyone up, I allocated myself a swap partner too! 

I swapped with the lovely Laura from Laura Lou Beauty. She's an amazing makeup artist, so buying for her was going to be a bit of a challenge, but after having an email discussion on likes/dislikes, I started shopping! 

We swapped parcels late last week, and I so so excited to see what was inside:

I had mentioned to Laura that I love anything to do with nails, so she bought the most amazing moisturising gel gloves that are great for dry hands. There's also a My Face powder which she told me is a favourite of Charlotte Tilbury's, my first Laura Mercier lip glace, Jurlique Love Balm and a really pretty MAC nail polish. 

She also included some fab samples, again of things that I haven't used before, so I can't wait to test them all out! A massive thank you to Laura for my goodies. 

If you took part in my summer beauty swap and you've posted about your swap parcel, please leave me a link to your post in the comments, and I'll include them all in an updated version of this post. I hope you all had a great time swapping!

  1. This is such a great idea! And a brilliant way to try out new things, based on how the other person reads you!
