The Goods: Favorites Swap [Updated]

Some time in April, I saw a retweeted status update by @officialstinad of Linny's Favorites Swap blog post and I was immediately intrigued.

Taking queue from Linny's post, here was how it worked:

With a $15 spending max, purchase your favorite things (lip gloss, nail polish, lotion, candy, gift card, candle, movie, book, magazine, etc) and send them to your swap buddy.
  • Must be able to send your swap buddy a package of goodies
  • You must be willing to spend up to $15 (before shipping).
  • Partners will be randomly matched up
  • Your package must be in the mail by a certain date
I was the coordinator of this fave swap and I changed up how swap buddies were chosen. Each person didn't know who had them and it was kept as a secret until favorite packages were received!

I was able to get 7 lovely ladies from my twitterverse and thus a 'fave swap'!

The ladies were:

@itsjustdi- Check out what she got from Bonnie: http://www.itsjustdi.com/2012/05/favorites-swap.html
@lopchelle- Check out what she got from Teresa -

@lalayu- Check out what she got Lissa-

Here are the favorites swap goodies I got from Lhey Bella.

The Goodies!

Yellow ribbed long tank top -
I've been saying how I need more tanks and this is perfect with the warm weather! 

Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm -
Smells like honey.. can I bite it? haha

Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm -
Love that it has vitamin E. With the dry summers in Vegas, this is great!

Maybelline Volum' Express mascara -
3 bristles per lash brush. My puny lashes need some MAJOR volumizing! Yay!

Rimmel London Kate (Moss) Lipstick No.1 -

Rimmel London Kate (Moss) Lipstick No.1
Very pigmented, it took a bit to take off my hand from this swatch.
Maybelline Show Stopper Nail Lacquer -
I know that this is a new line of polishes from Maybelline. I'm interested to see the quality.
Maybelline Show Stopper Nail Lacquer - in Onyx Rush (Black) - can NEVER go wrong with a good black polish!
Lhey and I are similar in the sense that we are huge makeup and nail polish fans! I have never tried any of these products and I'm glad to see that they are favored by someone who's a fan like I am. Thank you so much Lhey!!

This was so much fun!! If we are in an agreement, we may do this again later in the year! It was great to get some new fun goodies from great people!

So what do you think of these products? What do you think about this favorites swap?

Stay beautiful inside and out!
