Top 5 Beauty Product Swap with Sweetaholic Beauty

Yesterday I came home to find an exciting package waiting for me. Yup, it was my swap package from Jasmine at Sweetaholic Beauty! Jasmine and I have both been having issues with our tracking numbers (damn postage!) yet we both received our packages on the same day. Yay!

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, let's rewind. Jasmine and I recently finished our 50 Day Spending Ban (read about it here and see how I went here and here) and, when we were creating the rules we decided we'd end it with a BANG aka a beauty swap. We decided we would give each other our top 5 beauty products and sent each other a list of dos and do nots. 
 Firstly, can I please just comment on Jasmine's writing? AMAZING. So neat. Also, as you can see, everything was packaged up so nicely. I love myself some good wrapping!!

Now let's see what she sent me!

 I have almost bought the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette so many times but, for some reason, I've never been able to justify it. Jasmine said this was the first 'expensive' make up product she bought and it's still a go to product for her. This is only the second Too Faced product I've added to my collection as well, so that's super exciting! 
 The second thing I unwrapped was The Balm's Frat Boy Blush. The last time Jasmine sent me a package it was the Illamasqua Powder Blush in SOPHIE (fitting name, right?) and I absolutely love it so I totally trust her. This is a rosy peach colour is beautiful and I can't wait to try it. Jasmine said she wanted to get me another shade which was, unfortunately, sold out so I'm dying to know what that was, purely because I hate not knowing things. 
 When I think of Jasmine I think of two things, bright orange lips and winged liner so I was not at all surprised when I saw Lime Crime's Opaque Lipstick in My Beautiful Rocket, the brightest of oranges. I'm not afraid to rock a bright lip and I absolutely love oranges so I'm so excited to have this. I've also been dying to try Lime Crime lipsticks so it's a double the excitement. 
 I'm really looking forward to trying the Hed Kandi by Eyelure Party Lashes after reading Jasmine tell me how amazing they are. I'm absolutely awful at applying fake lashes but I really want to learn and these are so lovely that I think they'll motivate me to practice. 
 Jasmine gifted me two eyeliners, Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner and Chi Chi Automatic Eyeliner. I told you she's an eyeliner gal! I've heard so many great things about the liquid liner but I keep forgetting to pick it up. I can't wait to try it. Jasmine said the Chi Chi liner has fantastic wear and doesn't fade. Woohoo!!
I have been on the BeautyJoint website about ten times in about as many days and each time I put the Wet 'n' Wild Comfort Zone Palette into my cart so I couldn't believe it when I saw she'd sent it to me. Great minds, Jasmine! She said this palette is her go to palette at the moment it's a goodie! 
 Finally we have two nail lacquers from Kleancolor, Mermaid and Twinkly Love. I've heard of Klencolor polishes but I've never tried them and I have no idea why because Jasmine said they're so affordable! I love the look of Twinkly Love, there's so many hearts in it!
Jasmine also threw in a selection of cosmetic bags and a little container which I'm fairly sure is from Daiso, a shop we don't have here in Perth. I definitely want to start using it to store my fake lashes.

Jasmine, thank you so much for the amazing goodies that you sent to me. I'm so grateful and can't believe how much you spoilt me. It's more than five, Missy! I know I'm going to absolutely love everything she sent me but I'm super excited for the Too Faced palette and I can't wait to do my make up with it. Thanks also for doing the swap.

I have had the most amazing time buying things for Jasmine and I'm so angry at myself that I forgot to include my non-beauty something. I'm definitely posting it.
