If you've been here for any length of time, you'll know that I do pretty frequent declutters of my makeup collection (part 1, 2, and 3.) I've been making a pile of everything that was in very good or new condition to take to my cousins, and since they live about an hour away, the pile was getting pretty huge.
Well I'm happy to report that I finally took my massive Sephora bag down to them, and my older cousin actually went through her makeup and beauty drawer so we could do a little bit of swapping this time around.
We both subscribe to ipsy, so she had a lot of samples that I've already tried out, as well as some bold lip colors that I've restricted myself to only owning 2 or 3 of, so I passed on some of those as well. (Luckily we have no shortage of other cousins to take everything off our hands) I still ended up grabbing a pretty good sized haul of things and I thought it would be fun if I showed you what I swapped!
ColourPop Gel Liner Pencil
I was so jealous when I saw that my cousin got this in her ipsy, so I was really excited when she decided to pass it on to me. I've used it once and haven't had any problems, so hopefully this ends up being a holy grail for me.
Pacifica Palette "Island Life"
I'm super excited to test out this little palette from Pacificia because these are actually all-natural mineral shadows! They all swatch really well except for the golden shade, so hopefully I'll fall in love with it!
Manna Kadar Eyeshadow Duo
This is a bronzer highlight duo, but I thought it would be perfect for a super quick eyeshadow look! I'm excited to play with this on lazy days or mornings when I'm running late.
Naked Cosmetics Banana HD Finishing Powder
My cousin has beautiful tan olive skin, but this banana powder looked kind of crazy on her, so she thought maybe my fair skin would suit it better. I've never tried a banana powder, so I'm excited to bake this under my eyes!
BioRepublic Sheet Masks "Green Tea Detox" and "Aloe Rescue"
I'm always down to use some sheet masks, so I was excited that she decided she didn't want these! I love using these to unwind and relax or putting one on when my skin is extra dry or breaking out.
Marc Anthony Aloe Vera Jasmine Deep Conditioner
I LOVED the original Marc Anthony deep conditioner that comes in the blue and yellow bottle, so I was SO EXCITED when she gave me the Aloe Jasmine scent. This smells even better than I thought it would, and I'm so happy to have another tube of Marc Anthony deep conditioner to use.
Theorie Hair Oil Treatment
This hair oil looks pretty basic as far as hair oils are concerned, but it has a very nice professional salon scent to it, so hopefully it'll impress me. I'm really glad my cousin isn't a fan of super deep moisturizing hair products, because I'm more than happy to take oils and conditioners off her hands!
Briogeo Rosarco Milk Leave In Conditioner Spray
I love Briogeo, and I love leave in conditioner sprays, so I'm very excited to give this a shot. It smells incredible, and this is totally up my alley!
Bare Republic Dry Shampoo Powder
I am beyond excited to try out this loose dry shampoo powder. This claims to be 83.99% all-natural! It's obviously not as good as being 100% all-natural, but I'm sure that 84% is definitely 84% more natural than my Batiste Dry Shampoo, so at least it's a start. Hopefully this doesn't leave a horrible white residue in my hair, but we'll see!
This swap was so fun for me, and I hope you guys have enjoyed seeing what I got! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you next time!
