UK Swap with Vicky from Northern Blush

  A couple of months ago I planned a swap with Vicky from Northern Blush.  From my previous experience with UK swaps my packages take FOREVER to reach the UK yet Vicky managed to get mine in about a week.  The package she sent me however has been lost in the mail and she kindly sent a back up swap package via express mail.  I'm sure the original package will pop up eventually but it was really sweet and generous of Vicky to send this second package.

  Vicky is from Yorkshire, England and I'll be actually taking a mini trip to York with my family while visiting Scotland so hopefully we can meet up.  I love everything Vicky has picked out for me as besides the foundation I haven't tried any of these particular shades before.  We both like the same types of colours when it comes to makeup so each item is something I would have picked out myself.

  I received:
  • MUA Eyeshadow in Shade 30 (an amber-bronze colour)
  • Collection Eyeshadow in Steel Grey (a light silvery green)
  • MUA Pro-Base Eye Primer
  • Seveteen Shine Supreme Lipstick in Hot Stuff (a neutral glossy red)
  • Seventeen Lip Crayon in Bold (an orangey coral)
  • Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix Foundation in Shade 51
  • Sleek Blush By 3 in Sweet Cheeks (how amazing are these colours!?)
  • Fashionita Blushes in Amber Glow (a burnt orange) and London (shimmery dark coral)
  • Marks & Spencer Percy Pig gummy candies (which I couldn't help but open; sweet things don't last long in my house)
  I'll be testing these products out over the next little while so expect to see some reviews soon.  Thank you again Vicky; I love everything!  If you'd like to see what I sent to Vicky please check out her post here :)
