Blog Swap with Ashllyd

My Blog Swap parcel from Ashllyd is here!
Ashllyd and I decided to do a blog swop in October last year and it has been a lot of planning to get to this stage but we are finally here! I sent my box to her in December. If you would like to see what my box looked like then click here.

And here is the box that Ashllyd created for me. I think the box is really really cute. Bows are always a plus when it comes to me. When I opened it up I noticed a note from but I find personal hand written notes to be private so I haven't included this in the blog swop pictures. However, on this note it explained that she did buy me a fifth product but I did a review on it before she got the chance to send it to me, so she has offered me something else which I shall explain later. For now, lets get into what she got me:

Revlon Lipstick in shade 415 Pink in the Afternoon. I really love this lipstick. I haven't tried it on yet but I swatched it straight away and it kind of reminds me a little bit of the I Love Winter lipstick from MAC that I got for my birthday. I think that this one is a little bit more pigmented but I am still excited about wearing it and I am sure I will be blogging about this very soon!

Rimmel London Blush and Highlighter 21 Summer Feeling. These are really pretty colours. I swatched this again straight away and it was quite a muted colour which I didn't expect. I also realised that the powder was really soft and had a lovely texture. I am sure I will have fun giving this a go!

Rimmel London Lip Gloss 61 Pink Taffy. I am not really a lipgloss girl to be honest. I don't like my hair getting stuck on my lips and the general feeling of them, but I did swatch this, and the colour seems really nice. It has a slight shimmer and seems quite translucent which was unexpected after seeing the packaging. I shall certainly give this a go on a night out and see how it wears.

Essie Nail Polish in 461 Pink Ribbon. This is what immediately caught my eye. I love Essie nail polishes and this colour is right up my street. I have quite a collection of nude pinks now but I love adding to the collection. This colour looks like it will be stunning for spring and I can't explain how excited I am about getting it on my nails. I just wish I hadn't painted them with a different colour just last night! haha.

And finally, as I mentioned, she bought me a fifth product but I ended up already having it. Therefore, she has kindly said that I can give away a chance to get your blog redesigned by her to include in my next giveaway. Fancy giving your blog a spring clean? Well keep tuned because my giveaway will be coming up really soon and will include a few extra makeup items I have been planning for you :)

Thanks again to Ashllyd for this box. It was lovely and I am really happy with everything I recieved :)
