Smorgs Swap!

So, this post is going up ridiculously late and I'm so sorry! Between work, the holidays, and a bout of Strep Throat, I just haven't had time to get this blog up.

Morgan (Smorgs87 on YouTube) is one of my favorite people to watch. Her videos are super informative and she's really down-to-earth and relatable. I initially found her videos after searching for Little Black Bag reviews, and stumbled upon this video. Then, I won her LBB giveaway, and we've been friends since. We talked about swapping a few months ago and finally made it happen.

I received my box first. Everything was wrapped beautifully in black and silver tissue paper, along with a really cute note explaining the products.

The first thing that stuck out to me first was this beautiful scarf! Initially, I thought it was black, but in the light it's actually a navy. I wore this the day after I got it and LOVED it. It's warm but not TOO warm for LA falls and winters.

Next, my eye went straight to this beauty:

I asked Morgan to pick me up Cranberry Splash because I couldn't find it at my local Sally's. This color is everything I wanted it to be- a rich, blue-based, glowing-from-within red frost. It kind of reminds me of the red stripes on a candy cane.

Holy Lip Butters! I asked Morgan for deeper nudes/berries, and boy did she deliver! She also included a beautiful shimmery pink gloss, perfect for the holidays. And I LOVE Nivea Kiss of Honey. I have one in my purse, and I'm going to keep this one at my office.

I can't wait to try this stuff out! I have a few other eyeliners and mascaras to finish up before I break these guys open, and I'm itching to do so. Morgan swears by both, and I cannot wait to play with them.

If these products look used, it's because they are (by me of course!). I love these super soft e.l.f blushes. They are essentially in the same shade family (natural pink), but Tickled Pink is cool-toned and Candid Coral is warm-toned. I've been getting a ton of use out of these.

(Maybelline Instant Age Rewind in Fair)

Lastly is this very much talked about concealer that I can't wait to try (I will once I'm off my antibiotics and don't have to worry about contaminating it). 

Overall, this was SUCH a fun swap and I'm so happy that we got to do it! If you want to see what I got Morgan, check out her video here. Thank you SO much Morgan, I love everything and I hope you love your goodies just as much!!
