Shopping My Stash #4

Wow, it's been such a long time since I did a "Shopping My Stash" post. I've very much been stuck in a rut with the products that I've been using lately so thought that it was about time I had a good rummage through the products that have been left a little unloved. I didn't really know what I was looking for but here are the items that I've brought back to the surface of my storage and intend to use throughout the next week...

The first product is Urban Decay's Disney's Oz Great and Powerful Theodora palette. When I first got this I used it non-stop! Then I bought other palettes and slowly this became a little bit redundant. I really wish that I had continued using this as the quality of the shadows are the best that I've tried and the colours complement each other so well.

Another eye product is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige. This is the perfect lazy day product as a simple swipe over the lids and you have such a lovely wash of colour. It really brightens my eyes and goes really well with the palette mentioned above.

For the lips I have chosen Gosh Light and Shine Lip Glaze in 03. Not the most imaginative of shade names, but beautiful nonetheless. I have two shades of these glosses and neither of them disappoint. This particular shade is a rosy pink that is packed to the bring with iridescent sparkles. It's absolutely stunning on it's own or layered over another lipstick.

The next product that I've chosen is a little bit hit and miss for me but I'm trying to make it work and that is the Garnier Under Eye Roll On. I've had this for so long but just can't seem to get it to work for me but I'm willing to give it another go. It's a really thin concealer and it doesn't do much for me so far but maybe I will get on with it this week.

Finally, for my base I have picked MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation. I really need full coverage at the moment after having a few breakouts. This week I have had the mother of all blemishes and it's still a little inflamed, so this is the only thing that is likely to cover it. It's not great for my oily skin but with a little powder it will be all good. 

So there we have my picks for this week. Hopefully I will get round to using them all and they will become regulars in my makeup routine again.
What are you reaching for this week?
