I have been a terrible blogger, this post should have gone live two weeks ago but alas time has got away from me. I just get so tired when I get in from work, like I literally have no energy. It is really horrible. Anyway this lack in blogging is no reflection on the awesome post I have to share with you today. My dear real life blogging pal Alyssia from Alyssia Rose and I met up a decided to exchange some beauty goodies with each other. You can see what I gave Alyssia here.
So lets start with eye shadows, Alyssia has single-handedly helped double the size of my nude eyeshdow collection with these gorgeous eyeshdows. The large palette is Go To Heaven! by Makeup Revolution and contains some more pinky neutral shades including both mattes and shimmers. There is also a single eyeshadow by Makeup Revolution in the shade Make it Happen which is a lilac toned brown-taupe. The smaller pallette is Essence Quattro Eyeshadow in the shade To Die For. Ever since Alyssia posted her full face of Essence products video I have been meaning to try some of their products out so I am very excited to try this one! I am so happy that I can now shake up my eye looks for work with these beautiful new shades!
Alyssia also gave me a couple of other eye-related products. The I Heart Makeup (Makeup Revolution) Eye primer which I had been wanting to try for a while now and will work work perfectly with the shadows mentioned above! Also she has given me another Essence product in the form of a black Eyeliner Pen. Alyssia raves about these pen-type eyeliners where I have yet to be converted so I am am interested to try this and see how I get on (hopefully I can master flicks now!)
The next two products are face products. We have the Makeup Aceademy Undress Your Skin Flawless Skin Primer. I am yet to find a primer that I can rave due to my fussy oily skin and having tried both highstreet and high end products I still can't find my Holy Grail item so I am very interested to try this one. I can't believe Alyssia manged to find a primer that I haven't tried yet. I also got given Collections Speedy Blush in the shade Tickled Pink. This is a beautiful peach toned pink and will look lovely with some neutral smoky eyes!
Lastly we have this Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipgloss in the shade Flamingo! I love this so much and it shows how well Alyssia know me! I am always wearing my daring lipsticks and pink sis one of my favorite shades! I am also the biggest matte fans so this is just perfect and I can't wait to try it! Alyssia also sent me a more work appriote shade of lipsticks but that has alreasy been sojourned into my handbag as it is a perfect work wear shade but it will have it's own post (hopefully) later in the week.
In all thank you so much Alyssia for doing this swap with me, I love it all. I can't wait to do another one!
