Holiday Blog Swap with Carrie of Couture Carrie!

Carrie of Couture Carrie was one of the first bloggers I met when I entered the blogosphere nearly four years ago. With history like that, I could not pass up the opportunity to take part in a Holiday Blog Swap with her. We set the swap price at $50.00 {P.S. It is incredible how many amazing things you can find on a $50 budget}, and got to shopping. Check out the goodies Carrie sent me below; and see what I purchased for Carrie here!

AVON TRUE COLOR Eyeshadow Quad in Arctic Goddess: The ultimate ice queen / mermaid eyeshadow palette! The shades range from a frosty lilac to a frosty green to an {incredibly awesome!} matte blue {think deep blue sea ocean blue} to a dark matte forest green. Together, they create a beautiful twist on a standard smoky eye; but can also be worn separately for a more subtle beauty look. Love!
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish in Red Zin: Seriously obsessed with the vampiness of this shade – it’s a rich garnet red that is so holiday perfect. This is definitely my next mani – watch for swatches in January!
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish in Good to Grape: Super pretty mid-toned purple {that I don’t have a dupe of in my nail polish collection!}. What I love about these polishes is that they are a base coat, color, and top coat {Complete Salon Manicure} in one.
IsaDora Eye Shadow Trio in Purple Vain: This palette came at the perfect time! I have been wanting to try a purple shadow {I have green eyes, and purple is said to make my eye color pop}, and this one features three purple tones – Light Lavender, Medium Purple, and Deep Purple. So pretty!
Jonathan Adler Gift Enclosures: This is one of the cutest items I have ever received. It is a colorful gift box filled with 15 mini cards that you can include with gifts you give throughout the year {given the fact that the cards are so adorable, I have yet to decide whether I’ll be sharing them or simply keeping them for myself!}.
AVON GLAZEWEAR VitaLuscious Lip Gloss in Wine Wellness: Self-professed lip gloss addict here! This one is long-wearing and gives you the perfect balance of color and glossiness. Also pertinent…how perfect is the color name {Wine Wellness} for the holidays?
AVON Holiday Sweets Mini Emery Board: I am a total sucker for all of Avon’s holiday-focused beauty products, so I am slightly obsessed with this emery board. The print features a Sugarplum Fairy, Santa Claus, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and a Polar Bear. Cuteness!

So loves...what do you think of my blogger swap goodies? Have you tried any of these products before?

I just love swaps. Avon has some adorable holiday items; I'm obsessed with looking through their catalogues, and I always want to buy so much!

Those gift enclosures are too adorable; hadn't seen them before.

I've seen the Avon palette in the catalogue. The colours are lovely and I'm tempted to get it.
