Swanky Swans Mini Haul and Review

Hey Cats,

I was contacted by the lovely people over at Swanky Swans and asked if I would like to review a few products. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of choice available. Swanky Swans is a fast growing indie business that sell fun accessories and have some stunning bands. They stock a range of make up, bags, scarves and more.

Over the weekend I had my work party quickly approaching so I chose two make up items. The range of cosmetics is really good you could shop for palettes, eyeliner and highlighter all in one place. I knew there would be dancing at my party so picked the W7 fixing spray. I used this on Friday and was really impressed with how well it kept my make up in place all night for such a small price. My eyeliner didn’t budge at all, it did go n very wet and I had a panic I would have to restart my make up but it set super quick and didn’t disturb my fresh make up at all. It is small enough to fit in your bag too but I didn’t need to reuse it at all.

A party isn’t a party unless there is shimmer so I picked out a mini highlight and blush pallet from technic. This strobe kit has a cream blusher and highlighter and a powder version of both also, it is a really affordable little quad and the shimmer is beautiful. I didn’t feel like it was massively pigmented but for the price you can just use more to get your desired shimmer. I am definitely more of a fan of the powder over cream it just seems easier to work with.

The last item I picked out had to be a handbag as that’s where Swanky Swans built their business and my Ursula tote that I use for work every day was slowly dying on me. When I saw the Bonn Cosmo shoulder bag in mustard I just knew I had to have it. Keeping me warm daily this winter has been a trusty mustard duffle from George I picked up from a local charity shop.

Finding a lovely bag to match is always dreamy and this bag has heaps of space too. Two pockets at the front which will be handy for keeping my bus pass and receipts through the day in. Then the main bag is split into three compartments. The main middle which has plenty of room and zip pockets to store important things but is easy to access and then a front and back zipped compartment to store your important things like purse and planner. If you would like to see what kinds of things I keep in my bag daily let me know in the comments below and I will do a what’s in my bag video. The quality of the bag is really lovely and the strap makes it wearable every day for me.

have you tried anything from swanky Swans yet?
