Hello gals! I am so very lucky to have been able to swap with the stunning and ultra-generous Chanriya from Pinkstrawberrielove <3 She lives out in California and has access to amazing Korean and Japanese cosmetics, and I am super-grateful that she's hooked me up <3 It feels like my birthday came early XD
First off she sent me loads of lashes and a cute Dollywink lash case - awesome because I will be able to rewear some lashes now I've got a chic little place to stow them.
She sent me several sheet masks, a couple of which I've tried before and enjoyed (the Earl Grey and Hello Kitty ones). These are especially refreshing in the summer! If you can hunt some down I recommend giving them a try.
Next up is a fun-looking peel-off mask. I've been lax on exfoliating lately and I found the Boscia black mask a bit too harsh/hard to peel off, so I hope this one comes off in larger pieces.
Pinky-peach and lilac nail polishes from The Face Shop: The pinky-peach one looks a lot like the one she sent in our last swap, but I can't compare at the moment because it's in my personal box at the nail salon I go to. I love a good lilac and the one currently in my collection (Orly Lollipop) pulls much pinker than this one. I'm glad to have a true lilac now ;)
Peripera My Color Gloss, Fruit Jelly Tube Gloss from The Face Shop, Skinfood Tomato Smoothie Tint
Skin Food Rose Cheek Choc#2 - this is so cute. I thought it was a lip balm until I read the lable. I am excited to try out their cheek colors!
Three Peripera eye shadows in a cute floral drawstring bag - how adorable are these? <3 There's a chocolate shade, a buttery gold color, and a peachy orange. So perfect for Summer.
Stila Eyeshadow Duo in Orchid: This combo should look great on my green eyes. I'm hoping to tuck them into my small Z-palette that currently has a lonely MAC Melba blush pan in it.
Visee Gold Loose shadow and Majolica Majorca pinky-red pressed shadow - Riya knows I love a red and gold sunset eye <3
NYX Ultra Pearl Mania loose shadows in Very Pink Pearl and True Purple Pearl - remind me so much of Sugarpill Birthday Girl and Paperdoll. I hope we've got some dupes here :-D
The Face Shop Soft Natural Powder Foundation - The compact is a cute teardrop shape and it's definitely the season I need to powder. Most days, I'll try to get away with just some concealer and a powder like this on top, so I'm really looking forward to trying it.
Mini Pet Fruits Hand Cream - Oh my gosh, this is so adorable <3 <3 <3
Hadanomy Collagen Mist - The bottle is a heart, people. A PINK HEART! My Kawaii Receptors are tingling! I love refreshing face mists and I don't actually own many (two: MAC Mineralize Charged Water, nearly gone; and Urban Decay De-Slick) so I am so thrilled to get this. Riya read my mind!
Cute stationery - Thanks so much, Riya! I used to hoard stationery so I weened myself off of buying it and always ask friends and family for stationery as gifts but I still don't get enough ^.^
Loads of skincare samples - I love trying new skincare; it makes me feel so pampered. Paying for full-size without testing samples first is not a good idea if you've got reactive skin like me, so I am always happy to get samples so I can make sure my skin loves it before investing.
Whew! I can't thank Riya enough for the amazing array of stuff. She's such a doll - I definitely can't get most of this myself. Thanks sooo much <3
