Shopping The Stash #6

Shopping the stash post always seem to go down well and I love doing them as it means i'm using more of my beauty collection. Whilst I was having a look through what to pull out for this post I rediscovered some great products, a few which are definitely inspired by the weather finally starting to warm up.
Shopping The Stash #6
Laura Mercier Translucent Pressed Setting Powder
BASE:
Dior Nude BB Creme - £28.80 - I'd completely forgotten about this product as it definitely something I prefer in the warmer months as well as it sometimes being a little too dark for me. It's a great lightweight BB Cream if you want to not wear a lot of makeup but want to have some coverage. It definitely covers more than other BB Creams i've tried and the wear time is great too.
Laura Mercier Translucent Pressed Setting Powder - £25.00 - To set that in place I found this powder in a random makeup bag. I like that it's translucent so it doesn't add anymore colour or coverage to the skin yet set things in place nicely and makes my base last longer without having the powdery feeling.
Essence Stay Natural Concealer - £2.00 - Onto a more affordable option. I mentioned this concealer in my recent favourites as for the price it is really great. The coverage is light to medium without looking heavy and covers under the eyes really nicely for when you want a natural look.
Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Androgen
CHEEKS:
Bourjois Bronzing Primer - £9.99 - This is definitely a warm weather product for me. My favourite way to use it is underneath my foundation to add a nice warmth to the skin. This product blends so easily you really can't apply too much which is perfect if you have pale skin yet want to be somewhat bronzed.
Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Androgen - £17.50 - I also mentioned this product in my favourites this month and it's the only blush i've been wearing recently. I love the peachy pink colour as it adds such a nicely healthy glow to the skin. This has a harder texture than other cream blushes which means it as a lot longer wear time.
Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Orange Punch
LIPS:
Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Orange Punch - £7.99 - Keeping with the warm weather theme i've been bringing out a lot more of my coral lip products and finally putting away the plums. This is definitely a favourite of mine; as you can tell by the worn packaging. I love this as for me it's the perfect mix between pink and orange and gloss and lipstick. It feels lovely on the lips and even when the glossy finish as worn away it still leaves behind a subtle stain.
Shopping The Stash #6
I've been on such a drugstore kick recently that i've been forgetting about the high end products I own so i'm glad to be adding a few back into rotation and getting my money's worth out of them. Have you shopped your stash recently and rediscovered some old favourites?
