Beauty Edit: Shopping My Stash #1

I don't know about you but I love rediscovering products that I've not used in a while, it's like shopping but without spending any money, it's a girls dream lol. Most of the products I'm about to show you were staples in my summer routine and as it's nearly that time again I thought they need to be brought out of hiding. I have my fingers crossed that the weather decides to acknowledge what time of the year it is and reward us with the spring that we've been missing out on.

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle:
This is probably one of the most gorgeous highlighters I've ever used, but I'm ashamed to say I don't use it enough, so that's why I've pulled it out of my stash, I think it needs a bit more love. Instead of describing what it looks like I thought I would include a picture so we can all appreciate how beautiful this product truly is. Swatches will be at the end of this post.

Benefit Benetint:
Yet another product that doesn't get much love, I think that will change in the summer thought as this stuff doesn't move, but I wouldn't expect anything less from a stain. I prefer to wear this on my lips rather than on my cheeks, as I just find it more faltering.

L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara:
Ok so this mascara wasn't technically in my stash it was my mums, but she didn't like it so she gave it me to try. I won't say anything else about it because I plan on doing a whole review on it soon.

Origins VitaZing:
Last summer made me truly understand how amazing this product is, it moisturizes your skin while giving a hint of colour. I of course put it away during the autumn/winter but now I think it's time for it to be returned back into my regular routine. I definitely recommend going to the Origins counter and getting a sample, you won't regret it.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer:
Yet another one of my summertime loves, perfect for giving your skin little coverage while not making it feel weighed down, it also has SPF 20 so it's protecting your skin at the same time.


Hopefully the crappy weather we've been having stops soon so I can actually use these products, cross your fingers.

Let me know if you're a fan of any of these products and if you like them, also what you've shopped from your collection recently.

XOXO Claire
