Spring beauty swap with Kim

A little while ago, I set up a beauty swap to enable lots of bloggers to receive a surprise parcel of goodies from another blogger. I was paired up with the lovely Kim from Call Me Kim and after a few emails discussing likes and dislikes, we went away and started shopping!

A few weeks later, I received an amazing gold box (she really put me to shame with her packaging) and I lasted about 5 seconds before tearing into everything that was wrapped up inside.

I'd mentioned I love eye liner, and Kim sent me two colored MUA liners in gorgeous blue and purple shades. I'm trying to be more experimental with the colours of makeup I wear, so these will be perfect to help me do that. 

Inside the box there was also a MeMeMe cosmetics blusher, which reminds me a lot of Benefit's boxed ones, a Barbara Daly eye shadow and a heart shaped tin full of Nivea lip goodies. Nivea's blue lip balm stick is my favourite, so it was great to see one of these in the tin, along with two of their lip butters which I haven't tried before. 

Last, but not least, was a massive bottle of Treacle Moon bath and shower gel in an amazing lemony scent - citrus scents are my favourite, so this will be getting a lot of use over the next few weeks! Kim has also put lots of chocolate and cake in the box (yum), although my boyfriend devoured the Milkybar bunny before I had chance to! 

I really enjoyed swapping with Kim. I got a lot of brands in my box that I haven't really tried before, so I'm really excited to get testing. You can see what I sent Kim over on her blog. 

I'll be arranging another beauty swap in a month or two, so if you'd like to take part, keep your eyes peeled for a future post.

Have you done a beauty swap with another blogger before? What was your favourite thing you received?
