Autumn Box Swap

Recently I took part in my first beauty swap which was organised by Kat from Tales of a Pale Face. I was paired with Carro from I'm not sure if Kat engineered these pairs of if it was a random match. I would guess the pairing was fairly blind because mine and Carro's blogs are very different. Kat contacted us both, giving us contact details for each other and advice on how to get started. I had a read through Carro's blog but her posts are mainly lifestyle and not beauty. When we began emailing she told me some of her beauty likes and dislikes and I went out shopping for her. I got a lovely selection of bits and hopefully Carro will write a post which I can share with you soon.

Today I recieved my package from Carro. Inside she had included a little note to explain that all the product she had bought were from one brand, Rimmel, because she was taking part in an offer to stretch the budget. She also include a packet sample of Stay Matte Foundation.

Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint in 004 Sunkissed Cherry
I recieved one of these in my Glossybox last month but luckily it was in a different colour. I have get to try either but this is a lovely, blendable autumn colour and makes for a lovely natural look.

Scandaleyes Flex Mascara
I am assuming that this is the offer Carro was taking part in as I recently bought different items from Rimmel to get the same mascara! I love this mascara so I'm also happy to have an extra tube!

Lasting Finish Colour Rush Long Lasting Intense Colour Balm 
This product doesn't seem to have a shade or colour marked on it but is in a very bright red. I haven't tried one of these before but recently I have been really liking lip crayons so I look forward to trying this one.

Lasting Finish by Kate Shade 29
I have never tried one of the Kate Moss lipsticks but I have always wanted to. This is definitely something I would choose for myself. It's such a girgeous, bright berry pink colour. The packaging is gorgeous too. 

Thank you Carro for my lovely things. I can't wait to try them all!
