Update: Shop & Swap... WOW!

Last week I had some time off work so I had the liberty to walk around town and do a tiny bit of shopping. A couple of items I had in mind were 'work related' items. I needed flat shoes for days when I was tired of walking around in heels, especially in this corporate office. I found these shoes at a local thrift store for $5! Next door to this store was a liquidation store, which I also found my HG for my hair, Sunsilks Hydra TLC! Sadly I believe this item has been discontinued (Dollarama no longer has this in stock either), so I stocked up. Other items purchased: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch SPF, POSH Brushes, Jane Brushes, Infusium, Shopper's Drugmart Styles Rollers, Ponds Bonus pack, Bella Eyelash curler (LOVE!), and Ardell Eyebrow Shaper Wax.

Some reason my eyelash curler I LOVED, magically disappeared from my box. So I replaced it with the 'cheapest' curler I could find near by... Bella Eyelash curler. WOW amazing! (review coming soon)

On to the swap. I did a swap with this swapper quite a few times, every swap has unbelievably been getting better and better. This swapper is not only generous but extremely cooperative & kind :) We've been swapping for items we generally don't have access to... in this case she wanted CP of some clothes and she'd send me some ELF products and a few items I liked from previous swaps. WELL... She had gone through all lengths and practically fulfilled my whole "wishlist" as a surprise. LOL I have now think of other wishlist items because I think she got me almost everything on.

What we agreed on:
  • ELF items
  • Maybelline Coverstick Concealer - #199 White (x2)
  • Jane Crease Brush
  • Maybelline Expert Tools Eyelash Curler Refills - (2/pack=4 refills)
  • Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipcolour Lipstick - A60 Windsor Rose
  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - (Pearl) #619 Rose & Shine
  • Rimmel Vinyl Gloss - #115 Snog

"Extras" she got me (that we didn't agree on lol) from my wishlist too:
  • L'Oreal HiP Paint #813 Witty
  • L'Oreal Paris Bare Naturale Mascara #800 Black
  • Maybelline Dream Matte Powder - Medium 2-2.5 Beige
  • Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner Crayon #201 Black, #202 Black Brown, #203 Brown
  • Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eyeliner #252 Black Brown
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick - #026 Vintage, #070 Airy Fairy
  • Wet & Wild Ultimate Expressions #396 Sand Castle
  • Maybelline Full'N Soft Waterproof Mascara #311 Very Black

Everything else I didn't list were Extra Extras! WOW! Thank you thank you thank again V! You know if you eveeeeeerrr need anything ... you know how to contact me ;)
