I have always been intrigued by ‘Swaps’ but had never been tempted to take the plunge until Sandra aka ‘ttsandra from Youtube’ suggested that we do one of our own. It made sense – there were some bits from the UK that she wanted to get her hands on and I fancied some products fresh from the aisles of Sephora, so why not? Her parcel to myself arrived last week, and to say that I was overjoyed with the contents was a bit of an understatement! See for yourself..
She was an absolute BABE, and sent over the 2 things that I asked for and a whole lot more! She has a fantastic taste in products and obviously knows me well as I love everything :) I really, really pray she likes everything that I sent her over and hopefully we will be doing some more swaps in the future! Keep an eye out for some reviews soon, and I am happy to report that Tarte Tipsy blush has been worn everyday since I received it! Thank you Sandra!
Much Love,
Vivianna x

    Ooh swaps are so much fun! I haven’t tried anything from Tarte, I’m not sure if they sell it here :(

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Anna

      Tarte is such a pain to get hold of, but if you can find it I highly recommend the blush! xx

    Gosh, I love Sandra! She’s definitely one of my favorite bloggers out there! I found you through her too!

      Thanks for finding me – she is one of my favourites too! xx

    Love everything Sandra sent you, Vivianna!  Especially the candles!  The Tarte Tipsy blush is goregous!  Does it compare at all in colour to Topshop Neon Rose?  I know the Topshop is a cream-to-powder formulation, but the colour seemed similar to me.  Great job on the blog. xx

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Anna

      Thanks hun – she sent over some amazing stuff! I would say that Neon Rose is much more red-based, whereas Tipsy is more peach :) xx

    Vivianna! I am an avid follower from the States. I absolutely love your blog and check it religiously. My boyfriend, who is from England, lives in Michigan now and his mom is coming to visit for a few weeks over Christmas break. I need to send her a few goodies that I would like for Christmas. What should I ask for that you love and can only find in the UK?

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Anna

      Aw thank you hun, this comment made me smile! I would highly recommend the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, Liz Earle Skincare, 17 Beehive Lipstick and the Sleek Contour Kit :) xx

      • lindz5366

        I’m so excited :D Do you use Shade Light for the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer? My coloring is similar to yours. Thanks so much!

        • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Anna

          I use the shade Medium 3 :) xx
