Beauty Swap Recap

swapaholics 096

Despite the rain and the relatively new concept of swapping beauty products, about 20 fabulously fearless Swapaholics showed up last night for our first-ever Beauty Swap & Bag Party at 1154 Lill on Newbury Street in Boston. There were new-to-us free beauty products from brands like Chanel, Fresh, Kiehl’s, L’Occitane, Origins, Clarins, Tarte, and too many more to name individually. The bubbles flowed and the cupcakes were noshed, plus one lucky swapper walked away with the grand poo-bah of swap prizes: a brand-spanking-new Lexie bag from Lill!

Here are a few photos from the beauty swap, which we’re definitely going to do again soon. Possibly in Denver. But more on that later!

Everyone was so patient while we organized the amazing assortment of beauty products and gave a little rain delay so everyone had a chance to get there before we started swapping. As Cassie from The Closet tweeted, “It’s like Christmas looking at all the beauty treats, but we have to wait till The Swapaholics say go!”

Look how cute me and Melissa are in our coordinating “Chanel pink,” black and gray outfits — totally unplanned, we swear!

    I LOVE the idea of a beauty swap – I have so many lotions and potions that I tried and didn’t like.. This is definately going to be a huge hit. : )
