CBB Secret Santa 2017 Gift Exchange!

This year for the holiday season, fellow Canadian Beauty Bloggers decided to run another Secret Santa gift exchange! I haven't participated every year, and last year was my first time, you can see what I got here. I had a great swap in 2016 so when it came up for 2017, I said yes right away. Again there was a $30 minimum value that was agreed upon, and we all had to send out gifts out by December 8th. On Elfster you can create a wishlist for products you were interested in. We had no idea who would send us our gift, or what we would get, which made it really fun!


My Santa sent me 2 products that were on my wish list. I tried to "wish" for a variety of products, and this is what I was gifted! Two awesome lip sets!

Bite Beauty - Agave Kisses Set
A travel set with three products made from agave to exfoliate, treat, and hydrate lips. Powered by lip-quenching agave, this set features a deluxe-size Agave Sugar Lip Scrub, Agave Lip Mask, and Agave Lip Balm a three-step regimen to exfoliate, treat, and hydrate for well-nourished lips. 
The Agave Sugar Lip Scrub is a triple-action, foaming lip scrub infused with exotic oils, brown sugar, and pineapple enzymes. It cleanses and gently exfoliates, while the agave syrup helps moisturize and condition lips. 
The Agave Lip Mask is a soothing, leave-on lip mask that smooths, nourishes, and hydrates lips. It contains organic agave nectar, jojoba oil, vanilla co2 extract, and the antioxidant trans-resveratrol, at triple the amount found in red wine. 
A must for on-the-go lip care, Agave Balm is the perfect travel essential, with a nourishing formula made from agave, and rare madagascar vanilla co2 extract. Lips stay hydrated and protected all day long, and it also acts as a primer for color application. 

I have Bit Beauty lipsticks, but I haven't had the chance to try the lip scrub, balm, or lip mask, and I've heard amazing things about all three. I'm so happy to have received this set, and will definitely be using it now that it's getting so cold here!

Stila - Nudie Mood Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set
A set of three deluxe sizes of Stila's award winning Stay All Day® Liquid Lipstick in universally flattering nude shades. What it does: Get in the mood for nude with Stila's weightless, full-coverage, creamy matte lip color. These three deluxe size, flattering nude shades stay put all day and night. Each offers comfortable, long-lasting, full coverage in a weightless, creamy matte formula. 

This set includes 3 of the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the shades Baci, Petina and Perla.

Perla - Soft Rosy Nude

Patina - Dusty Rose

Baci - Nude Pink

All of these are beautiful nude colours, and I really like that they lean more pink nude than they do brown nude, because I would never be able to pull them off if they were brown. I'm excited to put these to the test to see if they really do last all day. I'll do a full review on them once I get a chance to wear them all!

Overall, I'm very happy with what my Santa sent me. A HUGE thank you! I really enjoy getting a surprise in the mail - so if I'm still blogging next year, I will definitely participate again. And what's actually pretty funny, my Santa was the same as last year! Check out her blog here!
