Shopping My Stash #3

I can't remember if I've said it on my blog yet but I'm going to be doing these posts fortnightly instead of weekly. Anyway onto the products.



ELF Cream Blush in Tease
I received this product in my Canadian Swap but have barely touched it. I have no idea why I haven't really used it because its a gorgeous shade. However the other day I decided to try it out properly and I popped it onto my cheeks. Its extremely pigmented and you only need the tiniest amount. It blends really well though so if you do put a bit too much on its fine. Once I've used it more I'll post a review on it.

I reviewed this back in October last year and I loved it! But since trying out new mascaras and sticking with my MUA Every Lash this one hasn't been getting much attention. I really want to start using it again though as it separates my lashes and makes them look really long which is something I look for in a mascara.


Oskia London Renaissance Face Mask
I got this generous sample a while ago but I've never touched it. Its sat in the baskets in my wardrobe waiting to be loved. This face mask is supposed to be brightening and resurfacing with major anti-ageing and brightening benefits to reveal a fresher looking you. Sounds fancy? For the full size this will set you back £16.50 and I am not willing to pay out that for a face mask. So I'm just going to try it out and if I love it that's no problem as really like my cheaper Montagne Jeunesse Masks.


Smooch Duo Eyeshadow in Purple Haze* and ELF Studio Eyeshadow in Amethyst
Purple eyeshadow's used to be a bit of a statement look of mine so I wanted to crack some out again. These two used to be ones I used really often. The smooch duo is shimmery and the two shades look gorgeous blended together. The ELF shade is slightly matter but still has a bit of a satin finish and it looks really nice blended in the outer corners. There are some shades in my Sleek palettes that I know will go nice with these so I can't wait to see what looks I can create.


VIVO Lipstick in Barely There Shade 8
This is a nude brown toned (its showing up a little dark in the photo) that I struggled to wear when I first bought it. I'm hoping I can pair it with a lip gloss, maybe the MUA Intense Kisses gloss in Sealed With a Kiss, to make it look a bit nicer. I really like the texture and feel of the lipstick so I'm hoping I can make it work for me.

Benefit Cha Cha Tint
For some reason I've barely touched my Benefit mini tints recently but this is the one I really would like to get more use out of. Its a coral orange shade that I really like on my lips and cheeks. On my cheeks it gives me a nice coral glow and on my lips its a subtle shade.

That's the products that I'm going to try and use more over the next 2 weeks, hopefully I can finish the face mask!

Thanks for reading,
