Shopping the stash usually means one thing for me: payday has been and gone and I've spent more than I should have. So rather than buying more make up that I don't strictly need, I have a rummage through what I already have instead.
It is actually pretty satisfying to come across a product that has been pushed to the back of the drawer, and remember how good it is.
First up, I've rediscovered Benefit Hoola. I can honestly say this is one of the perfect products for contouring if you have very fair skin. The colour is a light bronze without any orange tones in it, and it is perfect for carving out cheekbones and adding a bit of natural looking colour.
I was really happy when I found this Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon! I love the colour so much, it is more sheer on than what it looks like in the photo but it is super moisturising and is brilliant if you want some colour but don't want to go for a full on bold lipstick.
I first bought L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire lipstick when I found out that Kim K had apparently used this shade, Nude Ballet, on her wedding day. I actually really like it, it's a glossy nude that has an intense colour and lasts for hours.
Autograph highlighter has featured on this blog more than once before, but it really is a beautiful product that I have been using along the top of my cheekbones. It leaves a lovely luminescent glow without being too shimmery or fake looking - no ones wants to look like they've been in an explosion at the glitter factory!
Last up is of course a foundation: I switch up my foundations all the time, regardless of whether or not I've found one that I really love or not. I have a steady rotation of about three bases at the moment that I really love, and L'Oreal Infallible 24hr Matte is one of them. It isn't an old favourite as such, but fairly soon after I bought it I discovered the new Laura Mercier foundation, and got distracted by that instead! However, I've been reaching for this one again and love the buildable coverage. It is a great base for contouring over as well, I always find matte bases easier to work on.
Do you like any of these products? What old favourites have you rediscovered lately? xx
