My seventh 'Shopping the Stash' post...I didn't really expect to keep these going for so long, I was convinced that I'd get bored of looking through my old products and carry on shopping for new things instead!  However, I've enjoyed rediscovering make up that has been sat at the back of my drawers and it's been a good distraction from buying new things that I really don't need. 
Peachy lipsticks have been my colour of choice lately, and I really love Melon Shimmer by Estee Lauder and Buenos Aires from NYX.  Melon Shimmer is a light orange lipstick with a sheer but well pigmented finish; it feels really nourishing too which I love.  The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is a bargain buy, it lasts for ages and the colour is super bold.  
My Benefit It's Potent eye cream is a god send when I have early starts, which is most of the week.  I use it after moisturising and let it sink in to my under eye area before putting the rest of my make up on.  It really seems to fade, if temporarily, my dark circles and smoothes out any tiny little lines that concealer could sink in to.
A couple of nights a week I've been putting on the James Read Sleep Mask Tan, to try and gain a little natural colour in my face.  I love this facial tanner because it is non oily and it soaks into my skin without clogging it up and causing a breakout. 
I'm still really into all things grey, and this includes my nails where I've been wearing a lot of No.7 Gel Look Shine polish in Grey Mist; it is a beautiful light grey shade with a glossy, professional finish - I would definitely add more shades from this range to my collection. 

I must say that my wish list is currently huge, almost every day I see a product I want but shopping what I've already got is a massive help and I definitely recommend giving it a go if you're trying to cut back on your spending! xx



  1. Have you tried the NYX Butter Glosses? I've loving them at the moment! So glad NYX is easier to get hold off now, such an underrated brand xx


  2. I love the colour of that nail polish, perfect transitional colour for this time of year.

  9. I need to get a full tub of the benefit eye cream, its probably the only cream I've used that actually makes a temp difference to dark circles! For a cosmetic company they got skincare right!
