Out With The Old And In With The New – Sample Swap #2

I love receiving my Birchbox in the mail each month. It’s just so much fun to fish a surprise package out of the mail box, unwrap it, and discovering the samples it contains. Participating in the My Subscription Addiction’s sample swap website is almost as great and it tides me over until the next hot pink package arrives in my mailbox.

What I traded

ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in Red Velvet (0.13 oz, $8 value)

Out With The Old And In With The New - Sample Swap #2 - ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick

I’m just not brave enough to pull off a red lip so this lipstick has been sitting in my dresser ever since I received it in my August Birchbox last year.

What I received

tarte Pure Maracuja Oil Rollerball (0.6 oz, $17 individual price)

Out With The Old And In With The New - Sample Swap #2 - tarte Pure Maracuja Oil

You might remember this facial oil from my January Favorites post. I got a sample in a set during the Black Friday Sephora sale and have been using it every night for the past few months. It’s been giving my skin that extra boost of moisture it’s been craving during this frosty winter.

Needless to say I was very excited when I saw that my swapping partner was offering a rollerball of this oil. I’ve been running a bit low so this one will be nice as a backup and it’s a good size on top of that.

I’m very pleased with this swap. Looking at the value of the items I definitely came out on top. Moreover, I already know that the tarte Maracuja Oil works for me so it will definitely get used. Success.
