Shopping My Stash - 8/7/12

There are some products that just get forgotten about so it's time for me to step out of my comfort zone and away from my favourite products and get some use out of things in my 'stash'. I've done this the past few weeks and tweaked the bag every so often to add more products. I keep the products I want to use in a make up bag on my dresser so I remember to use them.

Face:



Posie Tint (mini size) - Benefit
I need to get some use out of this pink stain that can be used on the cheeks and lips. After I got it in Glamour magazine last year I've been disappointed with it so I'm going to persevere and try it out again. 
Chocolate bronzer in 51 - Bourjois
It might be broken and in my opinion a bit crap but again I'm going to try and use this some more so that I can use it all up. I find it unpigmented and orangey toned on my skin, the darker one in 52 is probably less orange but unfortunately I'm stuck with this.
Clear Complexion Powder - Rimmel
The weather at the moment up North in very humid and damp, you step outside and feel all sticky - yum - so a bit a powder has been needed. I don't usually wear powder unless I'm wearing a lot of make up or don't want to look shiny on photos but this one is great as it's transparent and not too 'powdery' looking. 
Pot Concealer in Orange - NYX
I use this under my normal concealer to cancel out the awful blue tones under my eyes but I'm usually too lazy to use this all the time. I'm thinking of getting the Bobbi Brown Corrector because this concealer is a bit hard to blend because the consistency is a bit too dry for me.

Eyes:



Lovely Day Palette - Accessorise
I've been using this non-stop since I got it about a month ago because it is amazing so I want to continue on using it. However I want to experiment with the brighter colours as I've really only used the gold/natural colours, possibly use them as liners or for a lower lash line colour pop.
Kohl Pencil in Kingfisher Blue No.9 - Barry M
Bought this to use on the waterline or on the lower lash line in summer a couple of years ago but have hardly got any wear out of it as it's a bit stiff and not as creamy as I would like.
Collosal Cat Eyes - Maybelline
I love this mascara but bought another one before it was finished so I want to finish this up before it dries up.

Lips:



Viva Glam Nicki - MAC
I like the idea of this colour but on it disappoints me a little. It is supposed to be summer so I'm gonna crack this out.
Colour Riche Boosting Serum in 101 Freshly Candy - L'Oreal
This a moisturising lipstick in a healthy pink colour so I don't know why I don't get more use out of it, maybe it's the rosy smell.
Strawberry Suede Matte Lipstick - Revlon 
Another beautiful summer colour, a bright strawberry/orangey red.
Stay Glossy in Jewel Thief - Rimmel
And another beautiful colour with a displeasing smell, this one smells of flowery soap. A lovely pink/gold colour though.
