For this swap I was paired up with Tabitha from a hundred tiny wishes. We got to know each other and she sent me some really great stuff!
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes + Que Bella Face Masks + EOS Lotion + Exfoliating Body Sponge + Baby Lips Dr. Rescue + Burt’s Bee Cuticle Cream + CHI Hair Oil + Biore Self-Heating One Minute Mask + Mint Earrings from her Etsy Store (an early wedding gift!).
Can’t wait to participate in the next beauty swap!
Back in March I signed up for the 3rd Crystal Cattle beauty swap AKA the Spring Beauty Swap. This swap was co-hosted by Taysha from Dirt Road Charm. I was paired up with Carilynn from A Patchwork Life. And boy did she spoil me! Check it out:
The wonderful goodies I received:
*Organix Coconut Oil Mist
*Teal Sally Hanson Nail Polish
*Hugo Naturals Himalayan Salt Scrub
*Polka Dot Makeup Bag
*Cute little bin to store everything in
*And YES, that is the UD Naked Basics Palette! Like I said, girl spoiled me! 🙂
I had a great time getting to know Carilynn and hope to stay in touch. And as usual I can’t wait until the next swap!
Crystal from Crystal Cattle has been hosting beauty swaps every so often. This is the second one, and so far have each been co-hosted by a different person. This time she partnered up with Courtney from Cowgirl Crush. Anyways, I was lucky enough to be partnered with Taylor from College Girl in a Ag World. And man did she spoil me :). So what did I get? Here ya go:
After chatting with Taylor about ourselves and our beauty routines, we found out that we have a lot in common. So that was great. She sent me a finger knit scarf that she made (!), an EOS lip balm in summer fruit, Dove Dry Shampoo, and three lipsticks!
The EOS lip balm makes me miss summer even more! Does summer feel like some mythical time that existed a long time ago to anyone else? Like the dinosaurs or something. I’ve been looking for a good dry shampoo for sometime. This Dove one works pretty good and has a really nice, clean scent. The top lipstick is Sonia Kashuk and the other two are Revlon.
1. Blushing Mauve (pearl) by Revlon. 2. Pink (pearl) by Revlon 3. Blushing by Sonia Kashuk. Three very pretty colors, prefect for spring if it ever gets here! They really can be worn year round (especially the first two) due to them being a nice mauve/neutral shade – which is great!
Like last time, I had a lot of fun participating in this swap and can’t wait for the next one! If you want to see what I picked out for Taylor check out her post here.
I signed up for the Crystal Cattle Beauty Swap, I had a lot of fun and got some great items! Now it’s time to reveal what I got. Taysha from Dirt Road Charm and I were paired up for the swap.
Items I received:
*MAC Lipstick in Viva Glam V
*MAC Eyeshadow in Sketch
*MAC Lip Glass in C-Thru
*Montagne Jeunesse Green Tea Peal Off Face Mask
*Cute card explaining the products and why she chose them
Taysha & I decided that we would just give each other our likes & dislikes and surprise each other with what we brought. She did a great job picking out colors and products for me! I don’t like bright lipstick so Viva Glam was perfect. I like a smoky eye so the deep purple was a great color to spice up a normal gray smokey eye. Check out Taysha’s blog to see what I picked out for her!

Anyone interested in doing a holiday beauty swap? I subscribed to Ipsy & Birchbox so I have a lot of beauty items that I won’t use. Plus, who doesn’t want an extra beauty gift this holiday season? I know a couple other blogs are doing this as well. I have thought of trying to set one up for a while, so I thought I’d give it a try. It could either be all samples or maybe one full size item along with samples? Leave a comment below if it’s something you’d like to do and if we get enough people we’ll set it up! 🙂
