Shopping my Stash


Hello old friend, its been awhile hasn’t it! I’ve still be servicing my beauty addiction and have lots of things to lovely things to share with you. Life just got busy, its still busy but I miss my little blog so putting it higher up the list again, lots of posts planned, hope you stick around to read them,

Keep me busy this month are a few exciting things including attending the Commonwealth Games and a girlie holiday to Denmark. As both of these require quite a few pennies, I am on a spending ban when it comes to make-up. As part of this I am ‘shopping my stash’ this month, digging out old favs and recently bought gems. I have decided to pull out a few items which will be the only make-up I use for the week (or two) and then swap/restock from my collection. I am hoping this will also help me use up a few things as the old make-up collection is getting a little out of hand.  An old glossybox is handy storage  for this weeks items.

For my face, I have Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua and a pretty battered looking Collection Concealer  both which I had a while and are close to being finished- really keen to use them up to make room for new things. Also Benefits Porefessional and Rimmel Stay Matte made the box, I have talked about before- reliable staples.


Blusher, I added my recently bought Sleek palette in the lovely name ‘Pink Lemonade’ which has 3 fab options which I haven’t tested properly yet- excited for that. Also a MUA pink blush, don’t really need it as well but its small so handy for carrying. Of course needed a Bronzer, so my pale pale skin looks like it has experience abit of summer- using a BodyShop one.


For eyes, I went pretty simple in my choices as I don’t wear alot of make-up to work. A good rummage in my stash I pulled out a wee Bobbie Brown Quad which I used to love but has been overshadowed (teehee) by shiny new things. Also grabbed  Rimmel Scandaleyes in Rich Russet as is quick to apply, great for early mornings. Decided need a  bit of colour,so I don’t get bored- No7 Matte Maroon is a great purple colour which adds an extra dimension to a smoky eye. Limited myself to one mascara- BadGal Lash which I love and really needs to be used up as had this bottle opened a while.

Lips was the hardest one to shop my stash for and I originally had heaps of options. Forced myself to pick just two for this week: Revlon, Lip Butter in Macroon and a Chanel Lip gloss (181). I really like Chanel’s packaging always so elegant.

I have actually really enjoyed just having my wee box to pick from in the mornings before works, less decisions to be made. Might starting missing the options come Saturday night.
