Shopping My Stash

The other day I was sifting through my relatively small collection of beauty items. I keep everything beauty related in a small decorative suitcase and because there are no compartments for anything it does tend to get quite messy.
I took everything out and sorted it into categories. While I was doing this I realised that there was some stuff that I totally forgot I owned. This got me thinking, Ive taken some photos and these are things that Ive pledged to get more use out of.

First up is Benefit Browzings in medium. When I first purchased this I used it quite often yet Ive still barely made a dent in it. I do like defined brows during the day but I feel that on me it looks too overdone for daytime so I did keep this just for nights out. It worked its way to the bottom of the case and I havent used it in a few months. Im going to persevere with this and where it during day.

Secondly is these unbranded lemon scented nail polish remover pads. These smell gorgeous and do the job that they set out to do. The only downside with these is that theyre quite greasy but a quick handwash sorts out that. The fact that I stopped using these for a while is simply that I forgot about them and just started reaching for a normal bottle of remover.
This is the one product out of all mentioned today that I did honestly forget that Id bought, I cant even really remember buying it but im exited to try it out when I paint my nails this evening. Ill do a NOTD and show you what it looks like and my feelings on the polish.

The only skincare item in my stash is this Superdrug Vitamin E brand day cream with SPF 15. I went through a phase of loving the whole brand of this and my skincare routine was made up entirely of this. When things were replaced this got shoved away and forgotten about. I have been using this for the past few days and im really enjoying using it. Its moisturising but doesnt leave me feeling greasy.

The last makeup item in the stash is this Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid in Ivory. I used to obsess over this foundation. Great coverage and on the right side of dewy it was something that I would reach for everyday. Ive got half a bottle left so im going to start reaching for this again.

The final thing that Im going to start using up is my Lacoste Touch of Pink Perfume (no picture as my camera is playing up!). I have a love hate relationship with this. Sometimes I love the smell and sometimes I find it really horrible. Ive had it for ages but fortunately it hasnt gone off which sometimes fragrances do. Ill try and get rid of this without wasting it but I dont think that ill repurchase this as there are other smells that I prefer more.

Would you be interested in seeing reviews of any particular items ive mentioned in this post or anywhere on my blog? Just leave a comment below and Ill write one out :).
