First Swap, with Taygan! =D

Super excited that Taygan from My BlOgSpOt *Montser Girl* agreed on doing a swap with me! She's one of my closest friends here on Blogger, we tweet each other almost every single day and it's usually endless chit-chatting. LOVE. She is so nice and don't to Earth, I suggest you all check her out and follower her blog for me, k? Please and thankkkkkkkkkkk you! =D

I was soo excited when I got my package, she even paid extra for express shipping which I thought she was super nice because she really didn't have to spend extra money on me. I so excited to receive my package 2 days after she shipped it out! We had a tiny spending budget of $20 but when you see what she got me, you know she OVERSPENT on me again!! I felt sooo bad that I didn't send her more!! But, I was happy when I unwrapped it to find everything I wanted! (I can finally cross out some of the items on the Wish List =P). Thank you Taygan!! =D

Here we go with the GOODIES =D

Nicely wrapped by the wonderful Taygan!
Love the cute card too!

My first Wet n Wild product ever! I love this colour in Nutty (shimmery brown) =D

Hard Candy Blush Crush Baked Blush in 125 Living Doll
I loveeee blushes, this is a frosty light pink =D

Rimmel Lasting Finish Blush in 018 Pink Sorbet
I wanted this ever since I saw it on "amarixe" from YouTube. I am soo glad Taygan got this for me, I can finally cross it out from my Wish List =D
This is a light pink/corally colour with a lovely sheen =D

L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes in 630 Blackest Black with s BONUS eyeliner =]
I wanted to buy this combo when I saw it at Walmart but good thing I didn't because they jacked up the price here in Toronto compared to what Taygan told me the price she paid for it. So glad you got me this T! another item off my list ^^.

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Watermelon and Hard Candy Tinted Lip Balm in Bridal Blush
So far loving both of these!
Burt's Bee has amazing pigments!, Hard candy is quite moisturizing =D

Here are some sample swatches for the above items =]
Lighting is washing out a lot of the colours though =[

Cheeky Monkey Document in CM-P-108
This is one of the reason why Taygan and I did this swap. She got this nail polish in one of her Luxe Box and I got a metallic black in mine but I prefer lighter colour while she liked darker ones so I suggested that we should do a swap instead of just sending one nail polish =]. So glad to receive this pearly white, I can do french tips with this =D. Thank you again T! =D

YESto Cucumbers Facial Towelettes
Love this compacted makeup wipes that I can put in my tiny makeup train case! =D

Maynards Sour Patch Kids
Yummmy!!!! One of my favourite sour candy! Taygan got me a big bag too =D
This will last me for a while =]

Overview of all the things she got me^^.

Thank you again Taygan! I am very grateful and happy to have meet you on Blogger and I sure had tons of fun opening this swap (as you probably know from all the tweets I sent you while I was unwrapping everything =P).

Hope you all enjoy reading this, I always wanted to do swaps because I was A LOT of YouTube and I see swaps everywhere. Never thought I could have an opportunity to do one myself so I'm glad Taygan agreed on doing one with me =D

Also wanted to thank everyone who have entered my mini giveaway, you can still enter now, there's still a ton of time for you to enter because it ends on November 30th. Click picture to be redirected to that giveaway =].

Thanks for reading, hope you all have a wonderful weekend =D

Aww!! This is a great swap!! I love everything in here (especially the sour patch kids.. I'm a fat girl at heart.. Lol). One of these days we should do a swap too! :D hmmm.. What do each of our countries have that the other doesn't?! Lol, you guys don't have a Target up there right? I think that's what a lot of my Canadian gf's have said. Thats why they load up when they come visit the states.

Hi Alx! Awww that's so nice of Taygan to include so many extras on top of the $20 budget. She's such a nice girl and I love her blog :) ooo you'll have to do a review of the L'oreal Millionaire lashes if you have time! I used L'oreal mascara for years and years...only lately did I switch to Maybelline The Falsies mascara. But I'd like to know how this L'oreal mascara works for you since I haven't tried it before.
Hang in there with your studies Hun! I know you'll do well :)
