Canadian Beauty Blogger Gift Exchange

During the holiday season I was able to participate in a Secret Santa Gift Exchange with the Canadian Beauty Blogger community. I was so excited because, since I like in Nova Scotia, I’m not able to participate in a ton of Beauty blogger stuff! But this was all done online and through the magic of mail. 

The gift exchange was done through Elfster and went so well! I sent off my gift and got a gift! 

Today I thought I would share everything my (not so) Secret Santa sent to me! 

My secret Santa was Desiree! Her blog is and her Instagram is @desireelaw. Go give her a follow and read her blog! She does everything from Beauty, to lifestyle, and food. 

I was excited to get this Shape and Shadows palette from essence cosmetics. I haven’t tried any essence shadows but I love the brand. It will be nice for more affordable makeup looks. This palette is also for brows!

I also had never heard of this mascara before! It is (insert name here). I’m excited to try a new mascara!

I have been eyeing these temporary hair dyes in the drugstore forever but didn’t have the guts to pick one up! This is the Garnier Colour Styler Wash Out Color in Red Temptation! I will probably do a review on this soon! 

This next product was definitely on my wish list so I’m super excited about it! It is the Tarte  Tartelette Tease Palette. It has 6 shadows and is super travel friendly. I love tiny shadow palettes. The colours are also gorgeous in this palette. 

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good face mask. I try to do a face mask a few times a week so getting this moisturizing mask from Nature Garden was perfect! I may have already used it (I did) and I loved it. It left my skin really hydrated. 

Do any of you guys do Secret Santa’s? What is your go to gift to give in Secret Santa’s?
