Recession Beauty: Makeup Swappin'

While makeup swaps aren't news to the savvy lasses of, some of whom regularly trade products via the UK site Beauty Swap Shop or through the leader of the pack, Makeup Alley, I reckon you won't have come across the pithily named and brand-new swapping site,, before.

Set up by Northern Irish lass Arlene Johnston, the site is for Irish and UK swappers and while it's only just launched, I see a couple of items of Extreme Interest already: NARS Orgasm blush, anyone? Or how about a little MAC glitter eyeliner?


Swapping can be a great way to try out products you wouldn't ordinarily be able to afford, and saving cash is more important than ever given our current financial crisis. Piqued your interest?  Head over to now to check out what's on offer.
