What's Inside my Spring 2014 Swap Box from Lauren!

Hey everyone!

Just this past week, I received my swap box all the way from Lauren in England! Lauren is a wonderful friend of mine, and fantastic makeup artist as well, so be sure you go check out her website!

We have been doing swaps three years now, and I don't see us stopping anytime soon! So, keep reading below to see everything she sent me for Spring! 

The perfect box with everything wrapped so nice and neat! It didn't stay this way for long!

Everything out of the box and unwrapped! Add a ton of happy squealing, and you can picture me opening everything!

~Mac Prep & Prime - Lauren know I have oily skin, so I can't wait to give this a try! Hopefully, it will keep my makeup lasting way longer this summer! 

 ~Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream - I am all about easy and natural makeup, so I can't wait to give this a try for the spring and summer months!

~Bourjois CC Eye Cream - With my last class coming down to a slow end, I have been under massive amounts of stress, and my eyes look horrible! This CC Cream helps with my under eye darkness, and is fun to apply!

~Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - How Lauren knew my perfect shade is beyond me! This little concealer works wonders on small imperfections and under eye!

~Sleek Blush By 3 Palette in Lace - This is such a beautiful blush palette, that it will get a blog post dedicated to it!

~Bourjois Cream Blush in 02 - Bourjois is quickly becoming one of my favorite UK brands! This cream blush is perfect for applying on the go for a touch of color!

~Collection Work the Color Neutral Shadow Palette - I am all about neutrals (occasionally I like to add color), and this palette is fantastic for that! Plus, the highlighter is actually cream, and works great on your cheek bones as well!

~Barry M Glow Palette - Another little gem that will get its own blog post soon! It has a wider variety of neutral shades and a beautiful soft pink blush! I'm thinking of summer travels with this guy!

~MAC Zoom Lash Mascara in Lofty Brown - It is almost impossible to find brown mascaras over here, so I was super excited to see that Lauren found one for me! As I said, natural makeup is my thing, and this little beauty will be a perfect addition!

~Ojon Restorative Treatment and Mascara - How did I not even know this existed?! This mascara has treatment for your lashes at one end, and mascara at the other. Great two-in-one product!

~No. 7 Ballerina Makeup and Set - Let's just take a moment to admire this makeup bag! I think it's simply gorgeous, and it has already been tucked inside my purse with my essentials in it. Inside this makeup bag was a selection of No. 7 products such as an eye shadow, lipstick, mascara, and moisturizer! All of the products are very me colors, and I can't wait to try them out!

~I love Strawberries & Cream Body Spray - Ok, this might be the best smelling body spray I've come across in a very long time! It's fruity, sweet, and smells like strawberries & cream! Need I say more? 

Lipstick Heaven!

~MAC Dreaming Dahlia Lustre Lipstick - This lipstick is perfect for spring! It is a beautiful reddish coral color that works wonders to brighten up your look!

~MAC Morning Rose Cremesheen Lipstick - A new favorite of mine! This lipstick gives your lips a soft rose shade that works day or night!

~Illamasqua Immodest Matte Lipstick - A fun, bright matte pink lipstick that goes on with ease? Yes, thank you! This lipstick will be a staple for me this spring and summer!

~MAC Flair for Finery Cremesheen Gloss - This lip gloss matches the lipstick Lauren sent me for Christmas, and I am so glad to have it in gloss form! Another must-have for the warmer months!

Candy Overload! The UK Easter Bunny has been here for sure! By the way, all of this chocolate is incredible! Those Creme Eggs... drool!

Buttons and chocolates oh my! And, that Mint Truffle Bar you see at the top was the best piece of mint chocolate I've ever tasted!

Crunchy chocolate mini eggs! Delicious!

Mr. Bean! This little bunny is still sitting on my desk looking all cute! Almost too cute to eat... almost!

There you have it, all of the wonderful goodies Lauren sent me for Spring! I believe that I have been properly spoiled this season, and I can't thank her enough for such a sweet package! 

Thank you Lauren!!!
