MUA Swaps

I confess, I am a MUA junkie. For all of you that don't know what MUA stands for it A website where fellow make up junkies like myself go to swap make-up. Now some may say "ewww that is gross, you swap used make up." And yes, you can however, I tend to only swap for new make up. I think this a great way of getting rid of all those impulse or "mistake" purchases. This way you can really get something you want. I have to admit...I have gotten some pretty cool items. Items that would probably be far to expensive for me to purchase in the first place. But what is one man's trash is another man's treasure!! (in our case I thought I would post some pictures of some of the cool items that I swapped for.

The first item is this amazing Chanel Romance Palette. I swapped this for a Marc Jacobs perfume that I don't think I have used in a year and has been just sitting on my dresser.

As you can see there is a small fingernail nick. No biggie for a palette that normally costs $85 in stores. Good swap right!

The next swap I got more for collection purposes. These are the LE Alexander McQueen Lip glosses that MAC put out a while ago. However, after his untimely death I feel like one day they might be worth something You never know:)

The last item is probably my favorite. It def comes in handy everyday and holds all my MUA swap contents. It is the MAC LE Liberty of London Make-Up bag. I know a make-up bag is so simple but it has literally taken me forever to find on I really like. I know people either love or hate the Liberty of London print but I love it.
To date, these have probably been my favorite swaps. What have been some of your favorite swaps? Have you gotten some LE item that you were super excited about? XOXO-MissMakeUpFairy
