Shopping The Stash #3

I've mentioned that i'm trying to save some pennies so spending on beauty products is currently off limits. I posted on Instagram that I gave things a bit of a clear out and whilst throwing some things away that we're definitely past their best I found some old favourites which i've added back into rotation.
Shopping The Stash
I did manage to throw out some base products which had got a little funky I found on old favourite in the Bourjois Happy Light Foundation. This is nice and light on the skin yet packs a good amount of coverage and a decent wear time. The shade range is a bit rubbish; shade 50 is a little dark on me but is perfect of i've been fake tanning. When it's been too hot to get a decent nights sleep the Benefit Erase Paste is always handy. This is a high coverage under eye concealer which covers amazingly yet doesn't cake up under the eyes. I always love cream blushes in Summer so the Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Coral Reef has been dug out. This is a bright coral shade which sheers out lovely on the cheeks to add a nice amount of colour.

I seem to be a bit of an eyeliner hoarder. To go along with trying to make my eyes look less tired the MAC Eyeliner in I Get No Kick has been something i've reached for. I believe this was limited edition but it's a nice pearly pink shade which I use on the water line to brighten things up. Something I loved when I bought it but have forgotten about is the Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick in Bad Girl Bronze. This is a bronze pencil which I either use as a liner or blended all over the lip. It is waterproof so wears really well.

For lips i've been loving this peachy combo. First I apply the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Charm on the lips and then pop a bit of the Barry M Lip Gloss in Shade 11. I've found this wears surprisingly well since the Revlon balm is a stain and then I just top up with the gloss when needed.

So those are some rediscovered favourites which I dug out when I went shopping in my stash. I think this is a great thing to do if you're trying to save some money since you forget what products you used to love. Have you found any old favourites recently?
