It's Christmas in July! (Or August!)

(I am soooo LATE on this post haha)

Awhile back I signed up for a Xmas in July Beauty swap. You can refer to the post here. The swap itself was hosted by Beast and Beauty.

Anyhoo, I was paired up with Chelsea from Confessions of a Beauty Addict. (Sorry for the late post Chelsea!) and she got me some lovely goodies from Australia! Lets begin shall we?




L: Face of Australia in Forbidden Fruit / R: Bourjois in Sweet Kiss


L: Australis HD Blush in in Shoot To Thrill / R: Face of Australia Blush in Nutmeg


Australis Lip & Cheek Tint in Renaissance Red and Portrait Pink

I absolutely adore the package she sent me! I told her I love bright pinks and reds and that is exactly what I got. I've never tried any of the brands above and am super excited! (The point of the swap haha!). 

I love both the blushes.... Shoot to Thrill looks matte but actually has the slightest shimmer that looks lovely. Not glittery at all. And nutmeg has this apricot champagne color that looks like a highlighter, blush and bronzer combined. A shame summer will be ending soon! Must wear this color as much as possible!

My only issue has been with the Australis Lip & Cheek Tint. No matter how many times I click, the product doesn't come out! D: I'm not sure if it has dried out in the shipping process but I'm gonna give another go at getting the product out another time. If I can I will do a separate post on it!

I loved this swap and loved who I was partnered with. Be sure to check out Chelsea's blog. You can also see what goodies I got her here.

**Side note**

If you read my previous post you may be wondering why I suddenly decided to post.
A. To get this way behind procrastinated post out there!
B. To somewhat distract me and motivate me

Who else did this swap? What awesome goodies did you get?
Take care! XO <3

  3. I had trouble with the lip and cheek tint too - I clicked for what seemed like 100 years and then just as I was about to give up, it exploded everywhere! It seems as though it either doesn't come out or comes out in an explosion!
    Lovely haul :)

  4. I got one of the lip & cheek tints in my package too! I just had to click it for EVER and then it finally worked. To avoid the tint-splosion thing I just clicked kind of slow, to see if this time was going to be the time it took... Good way to keep your hands busy during a TV show! Once you get them working though, they're great.

  7. Oh no! The tints don't work? I have one and it does take A LOT of clicks to get it working, but if you still have no luck I will send you a replacement prod!

    Glad you loved your package though - it was so much fun to shop for! x
