I love doing these Shopping My Stash posts each month, I discover makeup that has been neglected & forgotten about & fall in love with it all over again. These are my rediscoveries this month & I can’t wait to see everything.
Rodial BB Venom Skin Tint
During the warmer months I always reach for a lightweight base, thats not to say this Rodial BB Skin Tint doesn’t offer a good amount of coverage because it does but it feels extremely comfortable and lightweight on my skin. This is a great natural looking base that wears very well throughout the day and having quite a few foundations I seem to go through phases and this BB Cream had been pushed to the back of the drawer but Summer is here (in Cornwall anyway) and I will be wearing this on the days I want coverage but also a nice fresh, glowing finish.
I don’t think I have used a concealer as good as this one, its amazing coverage, hydrating and so easy to blend. I like that it brightens whilst covering dark circles and it has a lovely lightweight consistency. I’ve been trying to use up a few half finished concealers and so I hadn’t reached for this one in a while. I’m thrilled to have it back in my makeup routine & if you’re in the market for a new concealer then I highly recommend this one.
I haven’t been wearing much makeup everyday but I do like a little colour on my lips & these bareMinerals Lip Oil Balms feel like you’re wearing a lip balm but they still have a really good amount of colour. I have been wearing the more neutral Blushing Passion shade quite a lot and thought it was time for more of a brighter Summery colour & Pink Passion is a perfect sweet pink shade. This is going straight into my handbag & I can’t wait to wear it.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this palette and I can’t believe Its been so neglected. I haven’t used this in so long, (I blame my out of control eyeshadow collection), I have looked this out & will only be using this all month long. It has 8 gorgeous shadows and they’re richly pigmented and just the best quality. You would never know this was a $3 palette, its up there in my top palettes. If you can get your hands on one of these you must add it to your collection, I promise you won’t regret it.
It’s not a secret that Roller Lash is my favourite Benefit Mascara, in fact its up there in my top 3 mascara’s of all time. I love that it separates my lashes, holds a curl like no other and makes them look fluttery. I get no clumping or smudging throughout the day, it is jet black too! I forgot I had a fresh, unopened tube in my drawer so I am excited to have this as my mascara over the next couple of months. I think the packaging of this is just super sweet too.
I have quite a few of these Stila Eyeliners, I really like the colourful shades. This green one had been totally forgotten about and I swatched it the other day & thought how well this would go with the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette. It is a pretty deep green and has a touch of shimmer running through. These eyeliners glide on & are easy to smudge out but also stay pigmented for hours.
This is a beautifully packaged cream cheek tint and if Summer isn’t the perfect time to use this then I don’t know when is. It is a pretty sun kissed rose shade and I think its a great shade for my quite pale complexion. I’m aways a little scared of cream products but this is just too beautiful to sit looking pretty in my makeup collection. I have been watching YouTube videos on how best to apply, blend and wear this product & I am ready to use it, A LOT! Oh & this has the most delicious vanilla scent, I haven’t smelt a makeup product quite like it.
