Shop My Stash – Back in LOVE! <3

Have you ever fallen out of love with a product, find it again after a few months and then wonder why in the world you disliked it so much? Yep… that’s pretty much what happened with me!

I have so much makeup, I often ‘forget’ about what is in my existing kit. I am making it my mission to buy less and use more of what I already have – also known as ‘Shop My Stash’. I think this is a fun way to re-discover products you forgot you had!

Here are 5 items I fell back in love with and WHY..

1. Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette


I had a love hate relationship with this palette, but I’ve learnt it gets better over time. The texture is much smoother and this could have something possibly to do with the oils in your fingers mixing with the palette? The top row comprises of textured foiled eyeshadows which need to be applied using your fingers. You can read my full review here.

2. Huda Beauty Matte Lipstick


These need a lot of prepping and lip liner underneath, but the colour is so intense. I try to avoid eating oily food when I have this on, but Gossip Gurl is my ultimate favourite shade. My only qualm (still) is that I have major transfer issues, but I am loving the colour. You can read my original review right here.

3. Kylie Cosmetics Lip Gloss 


I was obsessed with glosses long before matte lips came along. Now that it’s freezing my lips are so dry and my love for glosses has now been rekindled as that’s all I ever seem to wear these days! The colours are super intense and when I’m feeling super lazy, I just whack on some lip liner and gloss on top.

4. Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Diamond Sponge


I went back to my Beauty Blender for a while, but it quickly stopped doing it for me. I love the diamond sponge because it has so many facets and gets into all the corners. You can read my full review here.

5. Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer 


I have always said this has been my holy grail conealer, but since I own so many concealers I like to try them all. I didn’t use eraser eye for a few months and missed it terribly. I am now back on it again! I also mentioned it in my drugstore favourite post right here.

These are my 5 forgotten about beauty products I’m loving right now. What are yours?

      I love the kylie lip glosses! I wear them all the time and the colour is very pigmented too. You should try at least one. As for the RT brushes – they are so good for under eye concealer and baking! Must try xx

      Yes it took me ages to love it and now I finally do!

    the diamond sponge looks so cute! I had never seen one of those before!

    I’ve never tried Huda makeup. That palette looks incredible.

  5. February 21, 2017 / 8:22 pm

    I really need to try Huda Beauty this year, the products look gorgeous xx

      They are slightly over priced but they are good xx

    I love the real techniques normal sponges and I’m dying to try the diamond shaped one !!! X

    That huda palette is stunning – the foils look so interesting! Great picks from your stash x

    Great post Annie – aside from the fact that you’ve started up the internal argument in my brain about whether I need the Huda palette or not!! I do have the Huda lipsticks on my wish list now that they have the mini sets, and I think you’ve just got me back interested in the RT diamond sponge too! Maybelline’s eraser eye is one of my staples already!

    This is such a good idea – I try and do this but then it goes like 6 months I remember, oh yeah I have that product!

    I’ve read so many mixed reviews about the Huda palette but it looks absolutely beautiful! I wish the Maybelline concealer came in lighter shades because I can’t seem to find a shade that works for me.

    I still really want to try that Huda rose gold palette! It’s interesting to read you have to apply the foiled ones with your finger though! – Amy

    Oh I totally need to try that Eye Eraser… these bags under my eyes are screaming for some help!!!

  14. February 23, 2017 / 11:59 am

    What a great collection of products! I have fallen back in love with my Maybelline flawless fluid foundation again lately – but lo and behold it’s already been discontinued!! Sad times x

    Good job you never sold your huda palette lol, I don’t really wear my lipsticks tbh I don’t like the formula which is a shame as I expected great things with these. I still need to try my RT diamond sponge ha ha! Great post xoxo

    I love shopping my forgotten products, one of mine that I’ve been re-loving lately is the ABH clear brow gel. Simple, but it’s really good!
