Shopping My Stash | Vol. 1

When you hoard shop tend to keep a lot of stuff with you, you end up loosing some of the pieces in the  black hole of your stash. Case in point, makeup. So this time, instead of buying new stuff, I decided to “shop my stash”. I know, it is a popular video/blogpost tag and has been done by bloggers bazillion times by now. But, it is my first, and turns out, I am quite happy with my little “shopping spree” if I may call it.  So lets see what I found!

Maybelline Eye Studio Diamond Glow Quad in 01 Copper Brown// Okay, I did feature a Maybelline  Quad in Copper Brown in one of my recent posts, but that was the one I borrowed from a friend of mine. I did not even remember buying one of these, and turns out I had. Don’t worry, I made sure it wasn’t hers. Anyway, it is a pretty great quad, especially for the price (INR 475). You get 4 shades with gold bases – a champagne gold, a pale brown-gold, copper and a chocolatey brown.  All have gold dust/specks in them.

Estee’ Lauder Ideal Matte Refinishing Makeup// The only reason I kept it aside was that it was matte, and  recently I got into more dewy foundations. I think I found it at the right time as its monsoons and my face is uncharaterstically oily these days. It gives a nice medium coverage and does not feel heavy on skin. Great for oilier skin types. I am planning a full review on this one.

Clarins Insta Light Natural Lip Perfector// Why did I ever stop using this! I can’t believe it. It is one of the best lip balm/gloss available out there. I have it in Apricot Shimmer which is a super sheer pale milky apricot nude. Make my lips so hydrated and lush. Love it!

Deborah Milano 2-in-1 Long Lasting Eye Shadow with Primer// I never used it. Bought it and misplaced it. So I’ll try it out and tell you how I found it to be, so keep an eye out for that.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Lollipop// Super pigmented cool/blue toned Fuchsia shade. I am happy I found it. Although the amount you see in the picture is the actual amount left. Oh Well!

St. Tropez Skin Illuminator in Gold// This is the one I am most excited about. I got it from somewhere this year. I thought I had lost it, but yay I didn’t! It is a beautiful highlighter that you can use on your face or body. Mix it with your foundation/BB Cream/ Tinted moisturiser for that sexy summer glow.

So have a little peek into your drawers and boxes, you might just find something you love, or something you hated, that now might just work like magic for you. Good Luck!
