Like most beauty addicts, I have a whole stash of items which do nothing other than sit there looking pretty and unloved. 'Shopping your stash' means to root through your stash and use up those unloved little buggers! Over the past couple of years, I have significantly reduced my makeup collection (compared to a uh... normal person?), so I don't really (denial!) have a lot of unused makeup. Most of my unused items are my lipsticks, cuz it isn't practical to wear a luminous pink/purple lipstick to work really is it?!
Anyhow, I perused my makeup and found some little gems to use up - voila!
I know, I know, there is soooo much more I could add to that little box, but, I'm thinking realistically here! I reckon I'll be able to use at least two of these per day. It's wishful thinking that they'll be gone in a month (I don't wanna look like a clown with the blusher!), but, hopefully they will go down significantly. Which means, I can buy more, big clap!
| The Body Shop Eye & Cheek palette (a couple of Christmas' old!) | Stila eyeshadow in Cloud | Benefit High Brow | Stila eyeshadow in Kitten |
All pretty, non? I don't actually quite know how these items came to be unloved - all of them are definitely work friendly and I reckon I could use two of these each day! I'm going to use High Brow every day and Kitten will be up high on the list to use!
| 1 - MeMeMe Blusher in Coral | 2 - No7 Skin Illuminator in Pink | 3 - Illamasqua Bronzer in Burnish | 4 - Collection 2000 Shimmer Shade in Just Peachy | 5 - Collection 2000 Shimmer Shade in Blushalicious | 6 - MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Redhead |
Again, all really wearable products! Why have I been neglecting them? I guess it's just routine really. Again, I think I'll be able to use these all up pretty easily. The only product I may struggle with is the No7 Skin Illuminator as I wear powder, I find liquid illuminators quite difficult to use, but I'll sure try!
I'll get back to you with my progress :)
