Benefit Exchange!

Please excuse the files and upside down octopus in the picture!

A recent conversation with one of my best friends led to her professing her undying love for YSL make up. Shocked, I asked her what happened to her Benefit make up that she had starter collecting a few months ago and BOOM, I got a whole load of barely used make up for a mere £35!

I was very careful about hygiene; I sharpened the eye liner until it was all new product and I threw away all the make up brushes that she had used with the foundation and blushers. 

I am so excited about using these products. Have you ever tried any of them? What were your thoughts?

Have you ever done any make up swaps with your friends?


  1. oh wow total bargain, a lot of my friends arent to obsessed with makeup but it would be pretty fun to do a swap :) xx

    1. I know what you mean. I wish I could do more swaps :)

  2. I wish I could do a swap, but I'm so pale all of my friend's makeup would turn me bright orange! haha x


  3. Hi, thanks for your comment about the Laura M loose powder. It's still available :) If you would still like it, leave your email address as a comment and I'll be able to invoice you via PayPal. Thanks x

    1. I'm sorry but I got another one after I didn't hear back from you. Thanks for getting back to me now.

  4. I use 'That Gal' and 'Coralista' eveerrryyyday..
    They are my absolute faves :)
    I'm not a huge fan of the brush they put in with the pot.. But if you use a big blusher brush it goes on lovely!

    1. I do like coralista!
      I have to layer it on though because I find it isn't very pigmented. I agree about the brush too - I don't use them.

  5. I'm so jealous! Such an awesome swap!
    Wish I had friends that where into makeup!!
