Recent Beauty Swap :)

So its about time I posted about my recent beauty swap with my dear friend Yessie @cinnamonandzoeykisses (check out her blog).  I was super excited to get my box which had some really cool beauty products. 

1. First and my absolutely new favorite must have, Philosophy "The color of Grace" Shimmer powder. I have been using it everyday. It gives my skin a soft pink sheer shimmer that does wonders for my face. I've gotten so many compliments. Patients tell me my skin looks amazing and radiant. I can't get enough of it !!
2. NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Eyeshadow Dust in a copper/bronze color. (sorry i peeled the label off) But It looks great on both the little bottle and on skin. 
3. ELF Baked Bronzer in Maui. I brush some on whenever my face needs some glow. No one wants to look washed out, right? Its summer in AZ so my skin is really dark right now, but I swatched these products from left to right (Philosophy Shimmer Powder, Elf Bronzer in Maui, MYX Eyeshadow Dust, and Jordana Lip Out Loud Gloss in BFF) 
4. LIP GLOSS!! Jordana Lip Out Loud Gloss in BFF.  What else can I say?? Its bright, Pink, and kind of has a watermelon-y taste. I love it!! 

5. Not one but TWO mascaras! Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Pop of Purple. I had mentioned that I wanted to try the purple one and next thing I know, there it is. A sure sign that my friend listens to me. <3  and Jordana Mascara in Black. I have been using this daily. Its light and coats my lashes evenly and doesn't clump. which is very important to me, because I have very short sparse lashes. So I like something like this that coats and darkens, but doesnt give me the spider lash look. 
6. There are two things I love, Vanilla and Coconut. Bath and Body Works has the best smelling stuff. I love Vanilla lotions. 
7.Nu Pore Collagen Essence Mask. I will use this this weekend. When I can sit in my chair and relax. 
8. Miso Pretty Blotting Papers. Every one should have a stash of these in their purse, desk, car. You never know what life is gonna throw at you or who you will run into. Because theres shiny happy people, and gross shiny people. Know the difference. 
9. Two nail polishes Wet 'n Wild Polish in Steel the Spotlight and Sinful Colors Polish in Fuji.

Hope you enjoyed this, if you haven't tried some of these products, check them out I'm sure you will like them.
