My dear friend and fellow beauty blogger BettyGirlMakeup and I recently decided to do a little makeup swap which ended up being a massively epic "Greatest Makeup Swap in History". I realise that's a big claim but I'm pretty confident I can back up my affirmation, it's all relative baby!

En masse I adore everything she selected for me and 2 weeks after first receiving the package I'm still astounded by such generosity and overwhelming thoughtfulness from a woman I haven't even had the pleasure to meet in person. I will try and keep the mushyness to an absolute minimum but I really wanted to say the online beauty blogging community is just amazing and I am so pleased and honoured to be part of it. I have come across some truly inspirational and extraordinary woman and look forward to finding many more!

Now for what we all came here for - MAKEUP:

Note: I've included a brief description with my first impressions, I plan on reviewing everything in detail ASAP - if you have any requests feel free to comment below and I will try to get the requested reviews out first. 

Sephora & Pantone Universe Color of the Year Lipgloss set

You all know how crazy I went over the lipstick from the same collection, these did not disappoint.

Sephora Prisma Chrome Eyeshadow in Moon Glow #36

I love the texture of these new hybrid gel shadows, beautiful used both wet and dry.

Sephora Mini Nail Polishes - Hippie Hippie Shake #46 & Sunset on the Beach #66

A nod to the Pantone colour of the year the mini bottles and names are so cute.

Sephora Retractable Waterproof Lip Liner in Naked

I've used this lip liner everyday since I received my package about 2 weeks ago - amazing.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil in Delinquent

Beautiful purple with purple shimmer - these things DO NOT budge!

Urban Decay De Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray

I'm not convinced this is as good as my normal Skindinavia setting spray yet - I need to do some more in depth testing.

Sephora Dual Pocket Mirror in Iridescent Peach

How sweet is this little peach toned mother of pearl mirror? It reminds me of something Betty Draper would have carried in her purse in Mad Men. Incentive to touch up my makeup throughout the day!

Betsey Johnson for Sephora by OPI Too Too Scented Nail Lacquer in It's My Pink

Straight off the bat I am a little disappointed, after applying 2 coats and waiting for it to dry there was no real noticeable fragrance. The shade and finish however is gorgeous.

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Nomad

The most amazing colour for spring but I am currently rocking it in Winter and plan on wearing it all year round.

Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in Saint Tropez #336

A Sephora exclusive (how irritating is it when they do that?!) This was the last one in store and I like to imagine Betty had to undergo a total WWE smackdown in order to get her hands on it, haha!

Too Faced Glamour To Go II Palette

I am very impressed by the pigmentation and texture of the eyeshadows for a little travel palette, I will definitely get a lot of use from this baby!

Too Faced The Naked Look (500 Point Perk)

I've seen a bunch of reviews of this perk on YouTube and was irritated I couldn't get my hands on it in Australia. I love using everything just as advised on the card for a easy but flattering look.

Physician's Formula Happy Booster Blush in Pink

After a little bout of illness this week I packed on a good amount of blush to try and give myself a good boost of happiness - unfortunately it's no alternative to Prozac but it is a pretty pink blush.

Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Beauty's Touch

Love! I've been wearing as a blush/highlight on the top of the cheekbones. Beautiful on fair skin.

Milani Baked Bronzer in Glow

I've always been curious about the Milani Baked Bronzers, I have a few of the blushes and they are amazing. There is a lot more shimmer than I am used to in a bronzer but I have been loving it again used on the top of the cheek bones as a bronzey blush/highlight.

Sugarpill Cosmetics Samples

My first experience with the brand Sugarpill, I am impressed!

As always thank you all for reading and participating in my blog - I love you guys!
