Shopping The Stash #4

I haven't done a shopping the stash post in a while and since i'm trying to slow down on the spending and use a few things up I thought it would be the perfect time to do one. Some of these I either haven't used in a while or one of them has been sitting in my stash unopened!
Dr Jart Regenerating BB Cream
Dr Jart Regenerating BB Cream -  £21.00.
This was one of my favourite bases to use on an everyday basis and I just haven't reached for it in a while. It has light-medium buildable coverage yet feels light on the skin whilst looking natural. The colour is great for paler skintones and is one of the best BB Creams i've tried because it has a decent wear time as well.
Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara
No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter - £9.95.
I featured this in a post recently (here) and it reminded me how much I liked the product. Having a highlighter in a stick form makes for easy, mess free application. It's not glittery, instead gives a nice sheen to the cheeks.
Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara - £10.00.
I got this in a gift set and it had just been sitting unopened in my drawer whilst I used other things up. I finally got round to using it recently and I really like it. The brush is big yet this doesn't make it hard to apply, instead you can build up the product to add volume and length to the lashes.
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in New York Scene
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in New York Scene - £7.99.
These seem to get mixed reviews but I think a rule is the darker shades are great the lighter shades can be a bit patchy. New York Scene is a beautiful glossy red shades, perfect for Winter. These feel nice on the lips and if you apply a light layer, blend it in then apply another coat on top the wear time is good too.
L'oreal Top Coat in Confetti
Barry M Nail Paint in Bright Purple - £2.99.
I have a lot of the Barry M nail paints but I had totally forgot about this shade. The name kind of sums it up as it's a bright purple shade which would looks great all year round and goes well with all outfits. It does chip a little which I don't normally find with Barry M polishes but is still one i'm glad to rediscover.
L'oreal Top Coat in Confetti - £4.99.
I think this polish is a little over priced and i'm sure there is a dupe by now but I do love the effect it gives. There's not many top coats that aren't glittery, this one is just black and white and looks great layered over so many shades. I just paired it with Bright Purple and it a less in your face nail art.

So those are some things that i've rediscovered in my stash this week. I'm going to try do this more often in hopes to use some products I used to love. Have you shopped your stash recently?
