Canadian Beauty Swap

While in Canada I had the opportunity to meet my blogging buddy Tori from Pretty Lovely Girls. We had been chatting for a while and had decided to do a beauty swap about a month or so ago. We had both collected our items, but when I decided that I would be going to Toronto we decided to do the swap in person!

I am so happy I got a chance to meet her and blown away by the lovely items she gave me! The only product I sort of knew/hoped I was getting was the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum as Tori had asked me what shade I thought I was. I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have this beauty in my possession! I can't wait to start using it. Another Bourjois product she got me was a Colour Boost Lip Crayon in "Peach on the Beach". I loved that she picked this color for me as it isn't something I usually would get myself, which is what's awesome about a swap! 

From Annabelle she got me a Roll-On Eyeshadow + Liner for "Hazel Eyes" which I'm incredibly intrigued by. Two products in one?? Color me interested. She also got me her favorite (cream) blush from Marcelle in "Coral". This shade screams my name when I look at it. The perfect everyday flush tone! Finally she gave me two sample sets of the Arbonne RE9 Advanced line. She's been working with the company for about a month and is always raving about how good the company and products are. I'm excited to see for myself!

Tori picked out some really fantastic items for me and I hope she enjoys the products I got for her! I'm incredibly thankful and glad to have her as a friend. It was such a blast gathering items and I look forward to doing more swaps like this in the future! Maybe I'll try to do one with the UK next?!?

Have you ever done a swap before?

xoxo Kayla


  1. That's awesome! There are so many beauty products that I'd love to try that aren't so readily available here in the States and one of them is that Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum as I hear so many good things about it from beauty bloggers in the UK.


  2. That is so cool! I wish i could try some of the hard to get brands too! :-)

  3. I did a swap last year and it's such a great opportunity to try products you can't easily get hold of! I'd be interested in doing a swap with you - I'm in the U.K. :-) xx

    1. I'm totally down! May have to wait a couple of months though so I can save up my pennies to get you good items ( :

    2. No problem, just send me a tweet when you'd be ready :-) @beauty__bird xx

  4. What a beautiful set of items! The swap is fabulous! I definitely take for granted being able to get some of these things!


  5. I did a swap with a lovely gal in Canada, and was soo impressed! I am jealous that they have Bourjois at their drugstores, the Healthy Mix Serum is flippin' -fantastic'! <3
