Sunday Shopping the Stash

Another Sunday another stash to be shopped...


Revlon Photoready blushes in Pinched and Coral Reef
I've had these for a few months and barely touched them but with Summer on the way out
I figure it is time to make some use of Coral Reef particularly as it is a tad too bold for Autumn.
Pinched does make a great base to apply powder products on top to intensify colour
and prolong wear.

FashionistA Blush in Blushing Coral
Nope not a typo but this bright candy pink blush is labelled as a coral
which it clearly isn't, in my opinion it gives a very similar effect to Mac Dollymix but with a much
more pocket friendly price tag!


My Face Cosmetics Eyeshadow duo in Italian Ice
I won't be using the aqua shade as pretty as it is it's not really a shade that I would use on a daily basis
but the brown shadow is a great crease shade for everyday wear and the formula of these shadows
are great - soft, easy to blend and don't crease easily!

Beautylush Eyeshadow in Summer Sky
This is the most beautiful green shade and I plan to use it for a night out this week blended in with 
deep shades and lashings of black liner and mascara.
If you like green eyeshadows I strongly recommend trying out this shade!

Olay Instant Hydration Eye Cream
I found this hiding in a make-up bag and as it is only half full I figure I should use it up
before it spoils, although marketed as an anti-wrinkle product I do find it to be super hydrating
and cooling on the eyes!


L'Oreal Caresse Lipstick in Tempting Lilac
I forgot just how pretty a light mauve based shade can be with medium skin 
until reached for this the other day and since then I have made it my mission to get more use
from it!

NYX Lip Cream in Milan
I recently finished my Collection 2000 version of this product
and with newish shades being added to the NYX line up I thought I should finish this one too
before I seek out any new shades!


  1. I love shopping the stash posts, i hear the NYX Lip Creams are like the Collection 2000 Cream Puff ones?

    1. Exactly the same thing only the collection 2000 are slightly cheaper and only come in 4 shades sadly

  2. I love these posts. It gives me incentive to raid my own stash! xx

    1. Glad to help motivate people to use unloved products :)

  3. I'm really liking the Revlon Photoready Cream Blushes. Coral Reef does look a bit neon in the pan, but once it is blended onto the skin it's pretty subtle!

    1. I couldn't have put it better myself :)

  4. Where can you buy NYX in the Uk? I've been dieing to try the Lip Creams and the Jumbo Eye Pencils for ages! But I sadly can't order online....

    1. I think and say think as I can't be sure that selected BHS stores stock it?

  5. Love the colour of the Tempting Lilac, I already have 3 of these L'Oréal Caresse lipsticks but none in the lilac shade as yet - must put it on the wish list lol! x

  6. Love your products! *__*
    Your blog is amazing! :)
    I'd be happy to have a new follower like you! Kisses

  7. I love the look of the revlon blushes, especially pinched!

  8. That coral blush is such a gorgeous shade!! I've never seen this brand in Canada though :(

  9. Lovely blush shades and the green eyeshadow is just gorgeous! I really need to start shopping my stash, my cosmetic collecion is starting to consume me! :( - for beauty reviews, hauls and health posts
