My first YouTube makeup swap is live and I couldn't be more excited! I was so happy to swap makeup and other goodies with my friend Jolien Nathalie, who lives in Belgium. I was anxious to get a taste of European culture through my favorite thing: cosmetics!
Catrice Defining Blush in Love and Peach
I fell in love with this clear packaging and the pigmentation of this blush is amazing.
I can't even talk about how pretty the packaging of this product is. So whimsical and fun.
Neapolitan ice cream, anyone? I just think this is so pretty. I'm so happy she sent this; I've been really needing a new concealer palette. I've been using a Victoria's Secret one that is dried up and the hinges are falling off! Ha!
Another product that I've been needing (wanting?) is mascara! I am obsessed with full lashes a la "They're Real!" so I'm excited to try these two out.
Catrice Limited Edition Celtica Baked Eyeshadows in Paralilac & Celtic By Nature and Yves Rocher Kohl eyeliner in black
I literally gasped when I opened these shadows! They are so glowy and fun. And I just love the design on this kohl eyeliner!
L-R: The Body Shop lipstick in 07, Catrice Infinite Shine Lip Gloss in Little Red Dress, Catrice Ultimate Colour Lipstick in Pinkadilly Circus, and Yves Rocher Nourishing Lip Balm with Almond Oil
I love that she picked up an assortment of lip products for me to try! The Body Shop lipstick is one that I would definitely choose for myself and the other two colors are a bit more daring, which I love! They are absolutely gorgeous and I cannot get enough of the Catrice packaging. It's just so pretty.
Loveau Purifying Face Mask, Yves Rocher Hydrating Day & Night Cream, and Nectar of Nature Soft Moisturizing Cream with Mallow
Now this is the part that really excited me: skincare! I've been a sucker for skincare lately and these products were beyond generous.
And to take it all off...
Thank you so much to Jolien for being an excellent shopper and friend! Here's to hoping one day I get my butt on a plane to Europe and experiment with more goodies! Please make sure to pay Jolien a visit on her YouTube channel or blog!
