Make-up SWAP with 'MakeupByMel'

Mel and I decided to do a swap, there a few things that us Brits can't get get hold so we seek help from our fellow make-up junkies across the water (and vice versa)!
I got some gorgeous items from Mel, i love everything :)
How cute is the packaging!?
It's amazing how much cheaper stuff in the US is compared to over here. They have high quality brands that are so cheap - it's not fair!

These are all the gorgeous things Mel sent, it felt like Christmas again opening my parcel :)
NYX pencils are my favorite, i wear the white one religiously on my lower water line to make my eyes look brighter! They are so well pigmented and the colours are beautiful.

(From L-R) Baby Blue, Yogurt, Dark Brown, Pots and Pans, Black Bean.

These are the most gorgeous colours! They are so sparkly.
Lilac Field, Pink Frost

Some more gorgeous lippies by NYX.

Narcissus, Creamy Beige

NYX Eyeshadows 'In The Woods'

I am in love with this pink! Wet n Wild - True Love

Glamour Doll eyeshadows - Jealousy and Skinny Jeans

She also put in this super cute bow necklace!

I also got NYX eye pencils in black and white ELF Eyebrow kit which is fab.
Everything is stuff i would use and wear so thank you Mel!!
Here's her Youtube link -
