Tarah, from the US did not disappoint.
Things that I really wanted to try:
Real Technique brushes and Terressentials mud wash. Unfortunately for me, it seems Terresentials is not a easy thing to come by.
Here's some of what I got:
Eos lip balm in Strawberry Sorbet
Eos hand lotion in berry blossom
Real Techniques eye kit
-As you may remember I recently purchased another Real Techniques kit from iherb.com and absolutely love the brushes. To get $5 or $10 off of your order, use promotion code: NUW38.
Mac Kohl in blooz
Urban Decay 24hr eye liner in black
Benefit smoking eyes palette
Stila stylish in Seoul palette
Burt's Bees radiance eye cream
-I don't really use eye creams. I use to when I was younger but stopped after a year or two as I didn't really notice a difference. I'm a big fan of Burt's Bees so I'll give this a try.
27 wishes multi-purpose skin nurturing balm
Revlon make up eraser pen
-How interesting! Didn't even know this sort of thing existed. It'll be fun to try out!
And many, many more..
My absolute favorites from the box were:
NYX lip creams in Antwerp and Istanbul
- I'm not a big fan of lipsticks or colour on my lips for that matter, but these creams have converted me. They go on smoothly and don't leave my lips super shiny. I already have full lips and don't need to draw anymore attention to them. The colour goes on matte and creamy. I would strongly suggest that you apply lipbalm before or after you put on the NYX lipcreams as they are matte and might emphasize the dryness of your lips. I know some have complained about the smell but I actually quite like it and it doesn't bother me. It has a slightly sweet smell.

Maybeline BB cream in deep
-Loooooove! Finally a BB cream that is suitable for my skin tone. I'm so happy she got this for me!
I'll have to do a comparison review when I get a chance. Trust me when I say this BB cream is bomb, well, at least it is for my skin tone.
Overall I'm really quite happy with this swap as Tarah introduced me to some of my new favorite items.
Have you done any swaps lately? If so, what new favorites have your discovered?
