PBBC Secret Eid Swap
This is a scheduled post since I am vacationing in Paris right now. Follow me on instagram for a peek inside my Paris holiday.
I have always wanted to be a part of a blogger swap but just didn't know where to start and who to trust. When the Pakistani Beauty Blogger Community decided to hold their second secret swap before Eid it just sounded too good to miss.
The whole idea of a secret swap is that you are paired with another blogger who is kept anonymous till after the swap. Each of the participating bloggers got to tell their wishlist and were allotted a budget of PKR 2000 to spend for their partners.
I counted days off my finger as I shipped my side of parcel and waited for mine to arrive. And it had to be one of the best days of July when I opened my mailbox to all these amazing goodies. They were far better than my wishlist and somehow things I definitely wanted. At the time I received my package I had no idea who sent it (though my guess was correct) but still to cut the suspense for all you reading this post my swap partner was the very sweet Atia from Makeup Monologue.
Who doesn't love S&G's Hand Food? I was definitely delighted to find this in the box since I have always wanted to give it a go. Then there's this cute pocket mirror which fits in any kind of bag or even your wallet. We don't have Elf in Germany and plus being a lippie hoarder this Elf Essential Gloss Stick had to make me happy.
I literally squealed in delight when I saw these three. I have raved enough about Rimmel Apocalips in my earlier review; to get Luna, the colour that I have been stalking over ASOS for so long just made my day. In fact all these three made my day since I could not find ScandalEyes Kohl Eyeliner in Nude here and being a lover of nail art, Barry M Nail Art Pen was definitely something I wanted to have.
And finally these ASOS Knuckle Rings were the cherry on the top. I have been wearing them since. I SO love them.
This has to be the one of best Eid gifts I have received so far. Thank you Atia for these gems and PBBC for holding such a fun swap.
