Hi guys! Today I have a very exciting post (to me, at least haha), and it is a beauty swap that I did with Angela from Beauty With Angela. I met Angela on Instagram – check out her Instagram, she posts amazing makeup pictures! She’s from Australia, and I’m from Malaysia! I’ve always heard of amazing Australian branded makeup but never got to try any because they’re not available in Malaysia, while Asian makeup is not easily accessible to her either. As you guys know (if you read my recent posts), I’m in Perth, Australia right now and we shipped out the packages while I was here to save some $$ on shipping.
I did do quite a bit of shopping here in Perth, as proven in my Lush Haul, and I also have another haul post coming up for you guys on some drugstore products, and another Lush haul. Thankfully I didn’t buy anything that she got me!
We set a budget of A$150 and tried our best to get our favourite products for each other but makeup in both Australia and Malaysia is ridiculously priced! So upon unwrapping her package, I got to feast my eyes upon beautiful packaging.. seriously, just look at how gorgeous all the products are wrapped. Mine totally sucked because I really cannot wrap gifts to save my life..no kidding.
Isn’t that an amazing package?? I was like a kid at Christmas ripping off all the wrapping! Makeup makes me happy 🙂 Angela got me mostly products from Australian brands, but also some brands that aren’t available in Malaysia. I’ll have separate reviews of these products up some time in the near future 🙂
W7 In The Night Palette
This is such a gorgeous palette! This has 12 gorgeous smokey shades and the pigmentation is amazing. Can’t wait to do some smokey looks with this palette – just look at that cranberry shade.
W7 Naked Nudes Quad
This is a neutral quad which is great for every day wear. I haven’t swatched this yet but all four shades look stunning!
Nudestix Cheek & Lip in Sin
I’ve heard about Nudestix but they’re not available in Malaysia. This is a pencil that can be used on both the lips and cheeks. This colour is a beautiful pinky rose colour. I’ve swatched this but haven’t gotten around to trying it on my face yet.
Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner
WHAT!! I can’t believe she got me this. My favourite felt tip liner is the Dollywink one but mine is almost completely dried out! I’ve heard so much about this Kat Von D liner and how they are raved by so many beauty gurus but could never try it because KVD is not available here in Malaysia. Ahhh, thank you so much Angela!
Eye of Horus Dynasti Brow Double Parfait
I LOVE Eye of Horus products! I have some long due reviews on some of their products that will be posted soon but I’ve never tried this one. This is a double-ended brow product, one end is a pencil and one end is a brow gel. This colour, in Brown, is the perfect shade for me!
Shanghai Suzy Lipsticks in Desert Rose and Neon Guava
I’ve seen these lipsticks on Instagram so much and I can’t wait to try them out! Desert Rose is a nude and Neon Guava is a bright pink. I will be doing reviews of these after I’ve tried them.
Lucas’ Papaw Ointment
This! I’ve heard about this on YouTube quite a lot before, and it’s like a multipurpose product. Angela recommends it as a lip balm and she also said it can be used for cuts and burns. I’ve tried this on my lips and it’s the perfect lip balm consistency!
Designer Brands Concealer Pen in Light-Medium
I used this today and oh my god, it looks so beautiful on the skin. It’s like a highlighting concealer that comes in a pen form, much like the Maybelline Lumi Touch Concealer. I’ll have to test this out some more and get back to you guys but I’m really loving it so far!
Designer Brands Lightweight Oil-Free Foundation in Warm Honey
I’ve heard such good things about this, and the packaging is so luxurious and beautiful! This is too dark for me, but I mixed in a little bit of my lighter foundation and tried it today and I LOVE the finish of it. It wore the entire day while keeping my face fresh and shine-free.
W7 Lashtastic Mascara
I haven’t tried this one, but Angela really likes it so I’m hoping it’ll be good for my non-existent lashes, haha!
Revlon Nearly Naked Mineral Foundation Powder in Medium
I’ve heard of the foundation and the pressed powder but not this. I’m really excited to try this because I’ve been looking for a good mineral powder.
Cafe Skin Scrub
I’ve seen scrubs like this on Instagram a whole lot, and she added this as an extra in the package – so sweet! I haven’t tried this out yet, but I love the sound of a coffee scrub.
I LOVE everything she got me, and I can’t wait to try everything! Thank you so much for doing the beauty swap with me, Angela, and I hope you like everything I got you! Have you guys tried any of the products she sent me? Let me know in the comments!
Check out what I got Angela:
