Shopping The Stash #9

I noticed when I was doing my makeup the other morning that i'd dug out a bunch of old favourites without realising so I thought I might as well do a shopping the stash post. Most of these are things i've liked for a long time as well as some i'm trying to use up or get more use out of. 
Shopping The Stash #9
Shopping The Stash #9
Bourjois Air Mat Foundation - My skin has been a bit all over the place after a few too many treats around my birthday so i've been trying a bunch of foundation to see which wears the best. I dug this out again since I remember liking the finish. When applied with a damp sponge this finish is mat but still looks natural and even on the skin. It wears nicely which is great if your skin is feeling a bit oily.

Laura Mercier Translucent Pressed Powder - As you can see this is something i'm trying to use up. It's one of the finest powders i've found and sets your base in place without making the skin look too matte. I'm trying to use up some of my powders before I buy a new one which is the main reason i've been using this recently. 
Shopping The Stash #9
MAC Groundwork Paint Pot - When I have an early start at work I don't want to be spending ages doing doing my eye makeup. This is why I dug this out since blended over the lid with a fluffy lid you can create a quick, subtle smokey eye in seconds. 
Maybeline The Falsies Mascara - I actually purchased this recently but it is an old favourite of mine. This was my go to mascara for a long time since it defines the lashes without looking clumpy. You can really build this up to create a dramatic lash look, especially if you use a lash primer before.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette - I have definitely forgot how great this little palette it and when you look at it, it doesn't seem that special. You can create a really nice combination of simple eye looks and define the eyes nicely. The quality of the shadows is very good and is definitely a must for any matte shadows lover. 

So those are the products i've dug out of my stash to give a bit more love too. I am prone to using the same products everyday, especially when doing my makeup in a rush so it's nice to shake things up a bit and rediscover some old favourites. Have you shopped your stash recently?
