Beauty Swap With Sofie

I'm so glad I can finally write this blog post and share it with you guys! A few months ago I arranged with one of my favourite bloggers, Sofie, to do a beauty blog swap. Now I know this isn't a new thing amongst the world of bloggers however I was so excited when she said yes and was happy to take part in the swap! I thoroughly enjoyed picking out the products for Sofie which I knew she couldn't get her hands on in Belgium! We both requested two items that we really wanted to receive and the rest were a surprise- and what a great surprise they were! I am thrilled with all the products I received and since getting them through the post I've been trying and testing them out to see what I think of each individual product. I thought it would be nice to share what I got with you guys and also give a shout out to Sofie for choosing such great products for me to try out! 

The two items I requested were the Catrice Camouflage Cream, which I saw Sofie write a blog post about how awesome it was. After reading this I really wanted to give it a go myself and see whether it would do anything for my dark circles. I have tried it out a few times already and found that the consistency is great for under the eyes as it doesn't go cakey or stick to the skin. The second item I requested was the Physcians Formula concealer which again I have heard great things about from other bloggers and wanted to give it a trial myself.

The next bits and pieces were all a surprise and I am so grateful for all of the items. Sofie included a few of her favourite items from Catrice such as the Absolute Rose Eyeshadow Palette which looks AMAZING and will be perfect for the spring/summer. I also received a beautiful peach blush  which is surprisingly pigmented and lasts well on the skin. Sofie also sent one of their liquid metal single eyeshadows which has a duo-chrome finish to it! I feel like this will add lovely depth to a dramatic smokey eye which I plan to experiment with as soon as I've finished this post. I also received the Lash Princess mascara from Essence which I have tried out already and love it- dont worry there will be a post coming soon- as well as two of their Long Lasting Eye Pencils which I have yet to try out but look like they will have great staying power. Last but not least Sofie sent me all of this wonderful makeup in the cutest make up bag which will be perfect to put all of my daily essentials in throughout Spring/Summer.

I would like to say a massive thankyou to Sofie for everything she bought me and I would love it if you guys would check out her blog if you haven't already which I will link here
I really enjoyed doing this blog swap and I would definitely recommend it to any fellow beauty bloggers out there! It is a great way to get your hands on different products that you can't easily find in your own country.
