1st International Makeup Swap

Hi Loves I hope you guys are having a great start to your week. I did a makeup swap with Mercedes from MsPurpleMakeup who lives in the UK. Now you may all already know that there are quite a few makeup items not available to those that live internationally and some things from the UK that we can not get here in the states either. We decided to do a little swap and have some fun. She had asked for some Milani items and I sent her a few items for her to enjoy. I have always loved and secretly obsessed of Sleek Makeup but had a terrible experience with there customer service and not to mention how long it took for me to receive 1 palette and the shipping cost. So I secretly admired others that had items from there collection.

Unfortunately there was a major issue with the postal service from the UK to me here. I believe she got hers pretty quickly but mine however was lost in space. She emailed me shortly after I sent hers and let me know she had sent it and sent me a copy of the receipt and all etc. Lets just say we are now in November and I just received it today. I felt terrible for her because she had expressed how much work she had put into it and the goodies she had put in and well as anyone the money that was spent also on the products and shipping. She kept in touch with me periodically to find out if I had received it. It was a signed for service and can not tell you the amount of times I stayed home purposely waiting for her lil package and nothing. No notice on my door Nada!

Today my husband call me that I got a slip from USPS stating I have Final Notice! Im like WTH? I never got a 1st. Well I get to the post office and the postman is extremely rude. I ask him how does something like this happen? He asked me what took me so long to get my package. I replied I never knew I had one waiting for me this is the 1st notice I received. Well according to there records it had been sitting there since SEPTEMBER 8th!!!!!! I was livid!!!. At this point wasn’t going to waste my energy speaking to this nasty man so I took it up with his boss and he apologized and well that was that.

Got this what I assumed was a head wrap or headband of some sort. Well if it wasn’t’ I made it that lol. I liked it and keeps my hair out of my face 🙂
Had just gotten home from work so excuse not so made up face 🙁

    That’s a really nice swap! Are you a member of the Mac-community on Live Journal? You can google it and it should come up but there’s so many Intl sellers as well as US sellers you can get almost anything instantly at half the cost (mostly used makeup)

    This is a really nice swap! Love how so much of it was pink! I’m in love with the Curacao Palette. I don’t have it but the colors are to die for. I also like the tinted lip and the Sleek blush. Those look so pretty. And I’m interested in the cheek tint. I’ve seen the Benefit one but I’ve never tried it. This swap was a horrible experience but at least the goodies are amazing. Have fun playing with all your new toys 🙂

    Your new goodies look amazing!! This is a great swap. I woulda been livid too, I’ve had horrible experiences with packages waiting for me at the post office for months like that. Then they’re rude to me like I’m the one that did something wrong?…weirdos. Anyway, excited to see makeup looks with your new stuff! <3
