Sunday Stash Shopping #1

Bye bye Sunday Sharing series, Hello Sunday Stash Shopping! Now that I’m on a makeup ban, I am now shopping in my own stash. It’s a good way to re-discover old loves, going ooh and aah over things I have forgotten, and maybe go ‘eh??’ on why I ever bought that shitty eye shadow in that first place. Good reason to find a better home for it then. LOL!

This post is inspired by Larie because she has her weekly experiments and I enjoy reading what she’s using and her different goals. There are so many creative people, they make me feel so, what’s that word, blah. Boring. Robotic. Flat. Bland. Anyway.

So what I do here, is to tell you what I enjoyed and didn’t enjoy using for the last 2 weeks, and probably create a look with those products. I don’t even know what I’m going to do with this space, but what I know is that I will be going through my stash and using old stuff. So, let’s see where this takes us, I guess. Let’s start with the last 2 weeks, shall we? I put a few things I wanted to use daily in my makeup bag, and I could add some other things on an ad hoc basis if I wanted to. The staples are these:

My goal was to layer some products.

Clarins liquid blush under NARS Deep Throat and Dior eye gloss under powder eye shadows. The result? Blush that lasts all day, and surprisingly, eye shadows that last longer than usual too! I broke out my Shiseido White Lucent base because it felt light, literally, as in, not much product left in the tube. This is more oily than I remembered, but it’s still workable with powder and MAC MSF Natural is still a favourite (my second purchase, actually).

A look with these products.




I literally climbed out of my window to get these 2 shots because the light was really bad in my room. I nearly fell! Hahahah!




I think I will continue to use the Shiseido base until I use it up. I just have to remember to bring blotting paper and powder to touch up. Definitely won’t repurchase, because it seems too moist for my skin now. Also, by the end of the day, any coverage is gone. Still, I want to use it up. Not much left, from the weight of this tube. I’ll also carry forward the Clarins blush as base, because there’s only half a tube left and I love working with the texture.

Stay tuned for my next stash shopping!
