Shopping the Stash #3



For this weeks shopping the stash I chose a few of my old favourites. First of all the Chanel tan de chanel (prev. bronze universal) which is a solid cream/gel bronzer. I saw that Lauren included this in her post last week so I decided to pick up mine again and use it this week. I mostly like using this as a contour with my real techniques contour brush or I sometimes put it under makeup for a bronzed base. The trouble is the packaging, as beautiful as it is it's very impractical and bulky which means I often pack it away and forget to bring it out. 

Next up is Mac's paint-pot in rubenesque which is a gorgeous shimmering rose gold cream shadow. I love using this on it's own for an easy look and you can apply it straight from the pot with your finger which makes it great for lazy days. It also works nicely as a base for powder eye-shadows and looks lovely with any of the shades from Naked2! Another Mac product I've rediscovered is the lip pencil in subculture which is a gorgeous muted pink colour that can be worn alone to provide a matte colour all over or used as a liner with nude/pink lipsticks. 

 I've been using my revlon colourstay balm in rendezvous which I haven't loved that much, I find the smell a bit too over powering and usually end up taking it off! And finally I've been using the Vichy Eau Thermale which is essentially water in a can that you can use as some kind of facial spritz to freshen up, which has been a lovely addition in this warmer weather! 

Another 5 products tried out again and I enjoyed almost all of them! 11 days left on the Spending ban! Don't forget to head over to Lauren's Blog to see which products she shopped from her stash this week!
