Swap with Naturally Marcy

Naturally Marcy and I have been discussing a swap since the end of 2012, not the END (of the world) but the end of the year. If you haven't checked out her blog yet, you must, she's basically my other blogging half! I thought it would be fun to post what I received from her.

Real Techniques Travel Essential Kit which includes includes:
  • essential foundation brush: Build flawless custom coverage with liquid foundation or concealer 
  • multi-task brush: for effortless application of powder, blush, and bronzer
  • domed shadow brush: tapered design smoothly shades and defines eyes
  • panoramic brush case is a 2-in-1 case + stand

I'm super excited for this set! Hoping to get to the USA and pick up the Starter Set and blush brush next!

Simply Natural Chamilla Lip Balm: This smells and feels absolutely divine thus far! I only applied it once, but am loving it.

Badger Cocoa Butter Lip Balm in Mocha Cocoa: I'm not a coffee drinker and don't enjoy the smell of coffee/mocha or anything BUT this balm has grown on me.  I went from thinking "ew, what the heck did she send me!?" to "can'". Superb lip balm!

Bubs & Scrubs Virgin Coconut - Coconut Milk SoapThis sounds like it's going to be delicious. I can't smell it through the packaging but I will definitely do a review when I get around to using it.

Youngblood Pressed Shadow in Zen: This shadow is a deep forest green with gold flecks, it's beautiful.

Alima Pure Shimmer Blush Sample in Freja: It's a beautiful neutral pink with lots of shimmer. I look forward to trying it.

Alima Pure Bronzer Sample in Belize: This bronzer is a beautiful medium high shimmer bronzer. It's very pretty and I think it would be best used on the decollete area because of how shimmery it is.

That's all folks! Hope you enjoyed seeing what I received in my swap! :) To see what I got her, click here.

Thank you Marcella for sending me fantastic products!


DISCLAIMER: We both set a budget that we met quite well. There was a slight misunderstanding, seeing as it was our first swap ever, so there is no need to write negative comments about who spent more, etc, etc. We are both thrilled with what we received!


  1. Those makeup brushes are brilliant, I have all of them in every set and single. Cannot live without them. You can use the foundation brush for cream highlight and depending on your technique, cream blusher. I would love to see what you got Naturally Marcy for the swap.

    1. Ohh awesome, I'll definitely have to try that. She's going to be doing a post as well, stay tuned for that!

  2. I haven't tried the mocha, but I really like Badger's cocoa butter lip balms. Looks like you got some great stuff!

    1. The mocha actually grew on me and now I love the taste lol. I'm in love with the cocoa butter balms now, it was my first badger products and won't be my last.
      I got some great stuff!
