I’ve had a few questions regarding how the international swaps work. I’m sure there are many ways but this is how it worked for the ones I have been involved in.
Once you find someone to swap with you, you agree to a budget and a timeline. Then you can share information about the types of colours/textures you like and whether there are any particular products or brands you are keen on trying. After that, it’s shopping time! And @Girl with Glasses, yes, the products are new products.
Once you have all your goodies in hand, you ship them out to each other and the fun begins. That’s it. Plain and simple — and so much fun!
Let me know if anyone else has questions.
UPDATE: Thanks for all your comments ladies. In terms of budget it really is up to the swappers. The ones I’ve been involved with were around $40 – $60 Canadian and we’ve typically focused on drug store makeup. For those new to my blog, take a look at my posts called “Goodies from California,” “Goodies from the UK” or “Goodies from Scotland” etc. Those are the swap posts. I encourage you to visit the blogs of the ladies I swapped with to see what I sent them. Unfortunately, our Canadian dollar doesn’t stretch as far as the UK or US dollar.
P.S. Is anyone having trouble with Google Friend Connect? I still am! I am still missing and finding some people can’t hit the follow button on my blog.
