Birchbox-Ipsy-Allure-BB5 Swaps and More!

Recommended Posts

Multiswaps are definitely welcome; I will also swap multiple items for pricier items on my wish list. I only use tracking if asked on single-item swaps, and generally, if it's a small sample of something, I prefer not to do so. 


Photos can be provided on request.


I have cats. They don't use my cosmetics (being naturally gorgeous), but if you're deathly allergic, keep their presence in mind.

Note that I will obviously be more generous in swapping for full-sized products! Boldface items are especially wanted. In most cases, either deluxe samples or full-sized are okay with me -- I rarely finish off any one item in any reasonable time frame. With powder products, lightly used is always OK. I only want new items for anything that touches my eyes, or cannot be sanitized. 


  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius
  • Benefit Cha Cha Balm
  • Benefit PosieBalm (BB July 2014)
  • Stila waterproof eyeliner pens (unused only)
  • Tarte LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint
  • Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Peach Beach 


Makeup/Palettes:  (lightly used ok)

  • Stila In the Know Palette
  • Stila In the Light palette
  • TheBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude palette


Makeup/Tools, Etc:

  • BeautyBlender BlenderCleanser Solid
  • Coastal Scents brushes (almost any)
  • Crown Brush brushes (almost any)
  • IT Cosmetics brushes (especially Heavenly Luxe Powder brush)


Skin Care:

  • BeeKind body lotion
  • Egyptian Magic Skin Cream (BirchBox June)
  • Paula’s Choice RESIST C15 Super Booster (BB July 2014)
  • Paula's Choice RESIST Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF
  • Paula's Choice RESIST Intensive Serum 
  • Paula's Choice RESIST Barrier Repair moisturizer with Retinol
  • Paula's Choice RESIST Skin Brightening Treatment
  • Shiseido Ultimune


Bath and Body:

  • Pacifica Coconut, Blood Orange or Vanilla body wash
  • Caldrea Body Wash, Coconut Fig scent only (BB May 2014)
  • Not Soap, Radio body washes aside from the BB-only scent (already bought it!)



  • Game of Thrones Mini figurines or Pop! Vinyl 
  • Superman Pop! Vinyl figurine from LootCrate January 2014 
  • Try me on other Pop! vinyl figurines!


General wishlist:
For skin and hair products, I prefer deluxe samples over foils so I can see the actual effect on my skin over a few days. As you can see, I'm also very open to non-cosmetic items if it's something I'd use/like, such as items from lifestyle boxes. If you have interesting items like these on your swap list, go ahead and message me!

  • Cell phone/electronics accessories (for a Galaxy Note II or a Nook HD+, or generically-useable.)
  • Geeky toys and t-shirts from NerdBlock and LootCrate (try me on types!)
  • Foody perfume oils: think vanilla coconut, caramel, amber, dragonsblood, fruits. Current faves are foody perfume oils from BPAL, Aquolina Pink Sugar, Prada Candy. No florals, please -- they make me cough and wheeze.
  • Velvety or matte colored or tinted lip balm with SPF
