It's 'shopping the stash' time again!  I've really got into doing this lately, it's amazing what forgotten gems you can find in your make up collection when you have a good look.  

This week I've rediscovered the wonder that is Benefit Sugarbomb blusher, and this is my second repurchase of it too.  The blush is split into four shades, which when mixed up and applied is a lovely summery coral colour.  It's the most flattering blusher I've ever used; the colour works well with my pale complexion and it looks good in both summer and winter.  Another Benefit beaut that I've fallen in love with again is the They're Real! mascara, which really does wonders for adding a whole lot of length to lashes both top and bottom.  I'd forgotten that it's a bit of a pain to remove but I can live with that since it is so good!  
I've also rediscovered an old favourite highlighter, the Autograph one which was £15 and can be found in larger M&S stores.  I've never tried anything else by this brand, but this highlighter is seriously good.  It is pretty much like Benefit High Beam but in powder form; the finish is a beautiful sheen that isn't fake looking or too shimmery.  
Last up is my favourite MAC lipstick - Impassioned.  I have let this slip to the back of my collection only because I wore it so much over the summer, and then autumn came and the  berries and nudes took over!  This is a bright candy pink shade that again is very flattering and is a matte finish.  

Have you got any of these products?  What old favourites has you found this week? xx


  1. The autograph highlighter is stunning. I can't even believe it's just from M&S. Looks much more high end. x

  2. Ah such a great ideal looking in your stash! :) I am loving Sugarbomb at the moment too! I like M&S make up also, they do usually get it spot on, like this highlighter :)

  3. That highlighter looks amazing! xx

  4. I love these kinds of posts - the lipstick looks gorgeous but can totally see where you're coming from when you say it's a Summer shade! xx

  5. That mac shade is beautiful! I love they're real too but it can be hard to remove I agree

  6. I have never tried sugarbomb before so I will definitely try and nab that at some point as I am alternating between rockateur and hoola at the moment xx

  9. I'm a big fan of Impassioned, it's one of my most reached for lipsticks and I think it looks great in the summer in the sun or in winter to brighten things up a bit x

  10. I love They're Real, it's one of my all time faves that I know I could go back to no matter what. I think it's so important to delve back into your stash now and again just so that everything gets used!
