London/Bahrain Swap with Laala of Intermittent Makeup

I met my friend Laala a few years ago on Tumblr, through a friend (Zet). At the time, I had no interest in makeup at all, so what we had in common was a love for literature and reading. Years later, we have another thing in common—getting bitten by the beauty bug. She blogs over at Intermittent Makeup and I’ve featured here on Nosy Beauty already.

Since she was going on a trip to London, she thought of getting me a few things from & Other Stories, since she knew I was salivating over looking to try a few things from them. We ended up agreeing to a budget and do a swap instead!

This is what she ended up giving me:

Swap - Bits

A pretty London-themed tote // Laura Mercier Hand Crème in Crème Brûlée // & Other Stories Eye Colour in Percaline Khaki // & Other Stories Blush in Canvas Taupe // Barry M (Gelly) Nail Paint in Blood Orange // Barry M Nail Paint in Countess // a few pumps of Burberry Foundation in Trench No. 5 // & Other Stories Brow Pencil in Bouclé Greige // & Other Stories Body Wash in Fig Fiction // Arabic Perfume Oil (!!!) // Vaseline Lip Therapy in Aloe Vera // Sleek Blush in Coral // Dior Addict Lip Glow // NARS Lipstick in Niagara // MUA Power Pout in Runway // Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance Lipstick in Bold

Swap Letter

Then, I got a letter, a note, some foxy socks and some special dates (!!!), which was pretty cool.

And Other Stories - Canvas Taupe - Label

Sadly, Canvas Taupe reached me all shattered. I’m currently testing everything because omg so much stuff. If there is something here that you’re eager to for me to review, do let me know!

I’m sending Laala’s package out tomorrow (I am the worst), and I can’t wait for her to get it! Thank you, Laala, for being patient and generous. 🙂 I hope you like everything I got you.


  1. I would love to see a review of NARS Niagara and the Barry M polishes! I’m going to England this spring for the first time in six years, and I suspect I’m going to do some serious Barry M damage while there. And Niagara is such a pretty pinky coral, I’m curious to see how it looks on you!

    • Coming right up! 🙂 I absolutely love Niagara so far. The Barry M Gelly polishes has a wide range of colors, so you’re in luck!

    Aww, Laala is so sweet! I was with her in London when she was picking out these goodies, so I feel a bit of a connection to this swap and I’m glad you’re so happy with it 🙂 Can’t wait to see your thoughts on all these goodies!

    Nars Niagara is one of my favorite shades!!! It’s so fresh and pretty 🙂 hope you like it!

    • 😀 ❤ Please let me know when you get the package! I sent it out last week and the courier said it should get to you in 7-15 business days.
