#ccbeautyswap

How fun is it to receive {fun} mail?

Lots of fun, is the correct answer if you were wondering.  ;)

I participated in my third Crystal Cattle Beauty Swap and this time I was paired with Sarah from Texas!  She was so generous, and sent me a package filled with fabulous items!  It was in my box when I got home from NFR and I'l be honest - I tore right into it to see what she had sent.  :)

Sarah was so generous, and in my package she sent me a Younique 3D Fiber Lashes set, two nail polishes in a glittery silver and red (perfect for the holidays!), a Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in an awesome flavor called "Quenched", a bottle of Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea lotion, Nivea's Express Hydration hand cream and some Christmas candy treats!

Note - There was more Christmas candy.  
Don't blame a girl for being hungry.

And it was delicious! :)
 
I have heard a lot about the Younique Fiber Lashes and was intrigued.  I'll be honest - I waited until I had a bit of time to play around with them so that if I screwed up I wouldn't look like a raccoon.

 
This meant I had to wait until I wasn't rushing around in the morning to get to work on time because I had snoozed WAY longer than I should have.

Anyway - I had a bit of free time last night before the Double M Ranch Christmas Party and I thought I'd get my glitz on.  These fibers are SO easy to apply and really made my lashes look full!  I shouldn't have worried about looking like a raccoon - the process is super simple and similar to applying regular mascara.

Before - with only mascara applied from the morning

Halfway thru - the eye on the right has the 3D fibers

Afterwards!  Full eyelashes!  It almost looks like I'm wearing a set of false eyelashes, they're so full.

I also immediately started using the Quenched (it's the blue tube) Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm and it is the bomb dot com.

My lips have been super dry and chapped recently (even with using my EOS) but two days after I started using this balm in the morning they are back in business and as smooth as ever.

I can't wait to try the rest of the items - hopefully I'll have a chance next week to paint my nails during my holiday break - and I know the lotion will get put to good use once we start calving and our hands start cracking.

As often as we wash our hands during calving in the cold weather, we're constantly battling chapped or cracked hands and the Nivea cream Sarah sent looks like it will be put to good use!

Thank you Sarah for all of the items you sent!
