This week’s Make-up Monday post is dedicated to the Crystal Cattle and Cowgirl Crush Beauty Swap!
For my second beauty swap, I was paired up with Brandi Lang of Lipstick & Tractors, and it was really great getting to know her! Brandi is a lot of fun and I feel like we have a lot in common. After we swapped a few emails regarding our beauty habits, what new things we wanted to try, and our go-to beauty looks, we shipped off our boxes to each other. I hope Brandi loves her box of goodies as much as I do! You can see what she got here.
I received my first box from Brandi on Monday; it was full of great beauty products & samples, and a sweet little handwritten note explaining some of the items! A CC cream, an organic blemish sample kit, another set of sample cleansers & moisturizers, an ULTA Super Shiny LipGloss, and a beautiful shade of Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick. The lip products were my fave, but I’m enjoying trying the CC cream too! it was a product that I had never used before.
On Wednesday I received another box from Brandi (well, from MAC which made me SO excited even though I’d only seen the box at this point) and tore into it right away. Brandi had gotten me a MAC Eye Shadow in Satin Taupe. Good lawd, is this stuff incredible! Brandi loves a smokey eye, and thought that I would enjoy this color. And I do!
I’m a little (read, a lot) ashamed that this is my first MAC product. I had avoided purchasing any MAC products only because I’ve heard so many great things about them; my wallet wouldn’t like me too much after a visit to the MAC counter.
Over all, I loved my Beauty Swap box once again and I look forward to participating in another swap soon!
