Shopping my Stash #1

I'm always on the look out for new products to try, just like every other beauty blogger. I decided that I would give my bank balance a break and shop my stash instead. I found this really fun to do as it was nice to rediscover things that I haven't used in a while.

Here are the items that I picked from my collection...

MAC MSF in Light Year:
I bought this when it came out with the Heavenly Creatures and used it almost everyday for a while, but it has become unloved due to new products. It gives a lovely subtle glow when using the loghter colours or swirled together for a lovely neutral toned blush.

MUA Cream Blusher in Yummy: 
This was my first attempt at a cream blusher and I love it. I'm a little unsure as to why I  haven't used this in  while but I'm going to start using it again to give my skin a natural dewy finish.

NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Sparkle Nude:
This gives my eyes a lovely vase for a nude eye look, and is perfect for during the day time for an effortless bright eye look. I have only used it a few times so I'm determined to give it a bit more loving.

Soap and Glory Lid Stuff in What's Nude:
I have a thing for a nude eye, and this is one that I like to take out with due to its size. Since I bought the Naked2 Palette this has become a little redundant, which is a shame because it's a lovely palette.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Liner in nude:
I bought this promising that I would wear it everyday, but as usual I didn't give it the loving I promised. I like to just pop this on my lower waterline for that wide eyed look.. This will go perfect with the Soap and Glory Palette.

Kate Rimmel Matte Lipsticks in 101:
I like a bold lip, but I'm wearing more nude and simple colours lately as I think it looks a little better for the day. This blue toned pink will finish off any look nicely and is perfect for everyday use.

So that was my first shopping the stash, and I have to say that I really enjoyed looking through my collection and changing up the products I'm using on a daily basis. 

Have you shopped your stash? If you have, I'd love to see so link it below and I'll have a nosey :)


  1. I wish I could get the hang of highlighters as I wanna try a couple of MAC's MSF but I just can't justify it yet!! I also absolutely LOVE nude eyeliners too :) xxx

    1. I'm loving highlighters at the minye, MAC Soft and Gentle MSF is a beautiful one x

  2. I have that S&G palette, I actualy use it to fill in my eyebrows! I need to use my Rimmel Scandaleyes nude liner a bit more often too. Youve reminded me to dig it out of my collection!

    1. I never thought of using it for eyebrows, I might have to try that xx

  3. I really really want to try the Mac MSFs and the Stereo Rose blush looks good too :-) I love those MUA blushers, at first I thought the pigment was rubbish but after a couple of uses it was love.

    I've nominated you for a Liebster Award! The details will be on my blog in about 10 minutes :-)

    1. I would recommend a few of the MAC MSF's. They're definiely worth the money.
      Thankyou so much lovely x
