I have seen a few bloggers do a similar post to this and I really like the concept, so of course I wanted to join in.
I have a little heart basket that used to contain my lip balms but I have had a clear out of those and I am now storing them somewhere else. So I decided to use the basket to hold products that I want to get more use out of, kind of a shopping your stash thing. I will be changing these products up every so often and letting you know what's in the basket.
I have some products from the Laura Mercier Signature colour Essentials set. The palette that contains 4 eye shadows and a blush which is just perfect for creating a subtle but girlie look, I usually finish of that look with a slick of lip gloss in sweetheart which is a lovely pearled pink. The other thing from the set is the Caviar Stick in Twilight a gorgeous silver which is perfect for a smokey eye.
A couple of other things I picked up in the Space NK sale was the Laura Mercier Neutral Colour Compact which contains 2 eye shadows and a Tightline Cake Eye Liner. This is great to create a soft neutral smokey eye. The other thing was the Bonne Mine Palette which is full of cream bronzers, highlighters and blushes which gives you the perfect glowing base.
I have hit pan on a couple of bronzers and have decided to just use them up. One is Nars Laguna Bronzer. I love this, it is great for my pale skin, not to orangey.
More eye products are the Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pens in the colours Brun Beam and Shell Sheen. I picked these up in the asos sale for about £8 I think. They are really creamy and apply well but I do find I need a primer to make them last.
Lastly is the This Works Shimmer Balm, this definitely gives you a more glow than shimmer and I do have to be careful not to put too much on but I do really like it.
I think this little lot will keep me going for a while.
What bits did you pick up in the sale? Do you like shopping your stash?
