Project: Shop your Stash - week 2

This past week was pretty low-key in regards to make-up. I opted for little to no make-up most of the days.

These were the items that I used on the days that I wore make-up:
Monistat "Primer" - let's just call it that. I used this every day I was wearing make-up. It does help my foundation adhere better and last longer.
Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach - I will be reviewing this in a few weeks, once I use it a little more. But so far I have to say, I like it. And that is quite a surprise, because initially I didn't like it at all!
Barry M Natural Dazzle - I use this as a blush. It's gorgeous for a natural day look.
MAC Love thing Mineralize Blush. ♥
NYX Black Bean - I used it on top of a base and the added Smashboxes Starlit (e/s) on top. Gorgeous taupy look.

Smashbox Splendid (e/s) - the light peach with shimmer has become my go-to colour that I wear when I go to work.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid NC30 - for those days I needed a little extra help. :)

Here's a picture:

Please note, that I am not mentioning the products that I use all the time, such as Mineralize Skinfinishes, Mascara or TFSI to name a few, as those I generally always use.

project: shop your stash!

Long time, no post.

I do apologize for the lack of posts. But here I am and I do promise some posts to make up for my being mia.

In an effort to show some appreciation to items in my collection that do not get enough attention, I decided to start project: shop your stash. (well, my stash)

Don't we know all too well what it's like to forget items that you have or that you bought and never got into for one reason or another.

This is a way to give these long lost, long forgotten items another chance. And heck, if it keeps me from buying new products, even better.

This week, I have been using these following items almost every day:

MAC Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation in N30
Everyday Minerals pressed powder blush in best friends
Artdeco Eyeshadow base
Smashbox Spendlid eyeshadow duo

Do you have items that you don't use? Give them a chance and post about it.
