Shopping the Stash #1

 photo IMG_4800_zpsl5q1pmf8.jpg

I have so much make up and I'm getting sick of so many products going unloved (i am planning to have a good clear out soon) and whilst i try to rotate my make up as often but it's not always easy to try and include everything. I keep my make up collection away from my everyday make up so it's easy to stick to my favourites and not pay as much attention to the rest so I've decided to shop my stash and select 5 products each month.

H&M Gorgeous Tan Bronzer
This was one of the first bronzer i bought when i started to get serious about my blog. It's massive and even though I've used it a lot it looks like I've barely made a dint, since trying more bronzers and contours this has just made its way further and further to the back of the drawer which is such a shame as i used to love it. It's quite a pale bronzer that is designed to add colour to the face and give you that 'gorgous tan' look. The packaging isn't ideal as it is almost as big as my face but it's a lovely bronzer so I'm looking forward to using it again.

Benefit High Beam Highlighter
When i first bought this i had no idea what to do with it, i don't even know how i ended up buying it first place it took me a while to get to grips with it but once i did i fell in love with it and it quickly became one of my everyday products. I wore it mixed in with my foundation to give me a healthy glow or nights out I'd apply it to the cheekbones to add definition and as I've tried out more and more highlighters this as just been neglected.


Seventeen Gel Eyeliner
I've always struggled with gel eyeliner but since getting the Real Techniques Liner Brush I've been wearing a brown one and it's gone okay, so I've decided to get this one out and give it a try. I've barely used it so I'm intrigued to see how it goes and what it's like.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick in Naughty Navy
I've actually never used this which makes me so mad. I bought it because i love the colour and i thought it would be really night to apply under the lower lash line to add a pop of colour and I've just never done it. I did only pay £1 as it was from a pound shop but it's not the point, I'm hoping to make use out of this more.

Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
This is one of those products that i wanted for the longest time and then i got it, liked it and then moved on and didnt look back. I forgot i even owned it which just shows how fickle we can be when it comes to make up. This used to be thee blogger must have back in the day and it annoys me that i've just tossed it aside so im actually really looking forward to getting this back out because put the white underneath your eyeshadows really helps make the colours pop more.

I'm excited to see how i get on with these 5 products, it's been a while since i last used them so im curious as to whether my opinions will change. I don't know if im going to do a post everytime i shop my stash but i may include one every now and again - unless you'd like to see them monthly?
