UK Swap with Sophie Is Made Up

So I'm kinda 2 months late on this blogpost BUT its finally here! While on twitter I noticed that Sophie tweeted that she wanted to do a swap with someone from the US. I was quick to respond because I definitely had a mini list of things I wanted from the UK. We sent each other lists and Sophie had a little more wiggle room with what she could get me (I couldn't think of enough stuff!!) so a lot of what she bought me was a complete surprise-but luckily this girl knows make up!

Here is a picture of everything out of the box.

Since there is so much I figured I'd highlight my favorites so far...

Bea-utiful Colors. All very light and shimmery.
17 Vintage Love- Perfect Pastels

Kinda clumpy, but the color will bring immediate attention to your eyes.
Collection 2000 Extreme Coloured Lengthening Mascara #4 Teal

In love with this liquid eyeliner. I don't know if its the brush or what- but it definitely beats my L'OREAL liquid eyeliner.
Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Eyeliner

This blush screams way too bright - but (with a light hand) it honestly is so pretty on the cheeks.
Blusher By BarryM 2 or 102?

From left to right...
BarryM Lipgloss- 18 Toffee (smells & tastes like toffee for REAL. aanndd its a nice beige color on the lips)
Natural Collection Juicy Lips- Fondant (milky pink/coral)
Boots 17 Mirror Shine Lipstick- Peace (this color looks intense but it is very sheer and perfect for summer)
BarryM Lipgloss- 12 (not sure of the name- but it smells like candy- milky baby pink)
BarryM Lipstick- 129 (lavender awesomeness)

Overall this swap was a success! I'm really happy with what Sophie picked out and I'm glad to have these additions to my makeup collection. She also picked me up 2 Sleek palettes- but I'm sure you've already seen plenty of pictures of them!
WARNING--if you do a swap with someone from the UK--shipping costs are highhhh! I paid $52 to ship my 5 pound box to Sophie (I know, I know, what the heck made it 5 pounds?!) Oh, and Royal Mail likes to take its time.

Be sure to check out Sophie's blog- its awesome. Trust me!
