A few weeks before Jasmine from Sweetaholic Beauty went to Japan late last year, I asked her if she'd like to do a swap with me since I was going to the states for Christmas and New Years and we could both get "exotic" products that aren't available in Australia. I was so stoked when she agreed. We set a budget of AUD$50, and exchanged wishlists.
I can NEVER have enough eyeliners, let alone waterproof liquid ones! I have not heard of the brand Leanani before, so my curiosity level has increased a hundred fold. Can't wait to try this eyeliner out. I kind of hope I hate it, so I don't explore what else this brand has to offer and add things onto my already mile-long wishlist.

Haven't played with the eyeshadow... yet. All five eyeshadows are shimmery/glittery, which I have to be super careful when using or it may look like I have two disco balls for eyes whenever I blink.
The blush looks so pretty, I ALMOST can't bare to use it!

In the wishlist that I sent Jasmine, I had a nail lacquer request. I wanted a pastel pink colour (which is my go-to nail lacquer colour). I was on the hunt for the perfect, PIGMENTED pastel pink nail polish. The majority of pastel pink nail polishes in my collection are annoyingly sheer. Hopefully, this will be the answer to my prayers!
Despite the super cute packaging, I honestly thought I wasn't going to like the Etude House Dear My Blooming lipstick because it looked far too bright for me. I was pleasantly surprised that it doesn't look as crazy on my lips as it does in the tube.
I have to admit that the "Black Bean" bit in the Skin Food Lip Line Pencil name threw me off slightly before I used it and fell in love. It's so creamy and glided on my lips so easily. Even though it's slightly more muted in colour than the Etude House lipstick, it totally works with it!
