Oldies but goodies #2

As much as I’d love to go out and buy everything on my beauty wishlist, I’m trying my hardest not to purchase things that I don’t really need. With this in mind, I decided to ‘shop my stash’ and pick out some oldies but goodies to re-introduce into my life.

First up was the No7 Essentially Natural foundation. The reason I’d not used this for a little while was that I’d fallen in love with the Balance Me BB cream, however recently I’ve been looking for something that offers a little more coverage (mainly for going out) and I remembered just how much I love this foundation. It’s really easy to buff into the skin (I use my Real Techniques buffing brush) and offers a lovely light and natural finish.

I’ve long been a fan of The Sanctuary but until a week or so ago I’d completely forgotten that I owned this Radiance Exfoliator. I used to really, really love this for brightening up my complexion and whilst I still does the job, I’m not so fond of the oversized exfoliating ‘bits’ any more and find them a little harsh on the face. For this reason, I’ve decided to use it as a body scrub instead and do you know what, it’s great!

My lips have been so chapped since I was ill a couple of weeks ago but thankfully I found my Born Lippy strawberry lip balm from The Body Shop and it’s worked wonders. Not only is this a lovely nourishing lip balm but it also adds a subtle, pretty red tint to the lips. Oh and it smells sooo good.

Last but not least we have the Maybelline Color Tattoo in the shade On and On Bronze. I’d forgotten just how much I loved this eyeshadow, which has a formula that lies somewhere between a cream and a gel. It makes it so easy to create a smoky bronze eye (even I can manage it) and is the most long-lasting eyeshadow I’ve ever used. Love it.

Have you shopped your stash recently?

  1. That lip balm is also one of my old favs, I get wrapped up in the new stuff I forget about the old . xox


  2. I like that foundation too- same shade and everything! It is perfect for nights out when I want that slightly higher coverage than my usual mineral powder foundation offers :)

  5. Ooo such a good read! Loved this post girl


  6. I love the body shop lip balms & Maybelline eye shadows too! So good to sometimes just look back into the archives rather than go out and buy something new :)

  7. It's easily done! I rarely get down a product before buying something new, so I'm trying to make better use of what I already own this year. xo

  8. It's beautiful! I really want to try some of the other shades. I have the Taupe one but I'm not too keen on it. Have you tried any of the others? xo

  9. It's gorgeous isn't it? I like it for days when I want more coverage than the BB cream offers. xo

  10. They do! I think the strawberry Body Shop scent is one of my all time favourites. xo

  11. They're definitely a great handbag staple! xo

  12. Definitely! I'm trying to do it more often so I don't spend as much on makeup! xo

  13. I'm not keen on that one either - too matte! I'm doing a review and roundup of mine on my blog tomorrow :) I have like 10! Xx

  14. Perfect! I'll look out for your post. Thanks lovely xo
