Shop My Stash! & What If Your Makeup was Stolen?!

Looks like Shop My Stash is becoming a Friday tradition! If you tuned in for Beauty Broadcast Live this week, you saw that I gave a little recap of some things from last week's Shop My Stash. I'll do that again this week-- it's a nice way to provide some mini reviews on things. And if you're not familiar with the whole "Shop my Stash" thing... it's basically a way to look through your collection periodically and use some products that have been neglected. I like to put them together in a basket so I remember to work them into my daily makeup routine. It's not like these are the ONLY products I'm using... just some products to try to incorporate more often. It tends to remind me of some great products I have, keep me from getting into a "makeup rut" where I use the same stuff over and over, and plus you kind of feel like you have some "new" stuff without spending any money! :) 

Face Products...
-IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer in Neutral Medium... This is an undereye concealer with really nice coverage, and it seems to be pretty hydrating also. It just kind of got pushed to the back after trying quite a few newer concealers. 
-NYC Sun 'n' Bronze in Montauk Bronze... This is a glowy bronze-toned powder that I thought would be nice just dusted over the face to add a summery look. It's not sparkly, but it's not super matte or very dark, so I won't be using it as a contouring product. 
-NYX Blush in Bourgeois Pig... Just a random pink blush that hasn't been getting much action lately!
-MAC Blushcreme in Posey... This is a super pretty cream blush. Don't know why I haven't been reaching for this more- it gives such a lovely natural look!

Eye Products...
-Too Faced Return of Sexy Palette... is making a return to my beauty routine! Yes it's a very shimmery palette (I reviewed it here), but I like it. It really has some fun colors in it. 
-Essence Stay All Day Cream Shadow in Glammy Goes To... I've been using my Color Tattoos & Milani Shadow Sticks a lot, but this is another great cream shadow that hasn't been getting enough love.
-Flower Beauty Lash Knockout Volumizing Mascara... This mascara will be empty soon- just need to go ahead and finish it up! 
-NYX Slide On Liner in Purple Blaze... A gorgeous purple liner that I rediscovered while working on my latest dupes video!
-Maybelline Master Drama Eyeliner in Sapphire Strength... This is that really pretty blue liner that I swatched in my dupes video. I need to be using these great, colorful liners!

Lip Products...
-Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in Healthy Blush... These are awesome tinted lip balms and this shade in particular just looks so fresh. Nice for a low-maintenace makeup day. 
-Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Flamingo Pose... a gorgeous coral/pink that I reviewed here on my blog. 
-Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Lovesick... This was one of my favorites from the balm stain line but I seem to be wearing lip butters more right now. This is an awesome color & should be wearing it more! 

Who else is shopping their stash? Any good finds from last week that are rediscovered favorites? 

Each Friday on Twitter & Facebook I ask a Fill in the Blank question.
Today's was: 
If a burglar stole all of my beauty products I would....


Thank you for all the responses!! I had so much fun reading them. My thought would be- I'd be absolutely devastated, then wonder how big of a moving truck they had to use to haul away the loot. And then I'd be off looking for some glammed-up criminals!! Have a great weekend everyone, and here's hoping nobody steals your makeup!

  3. Love your stash. It reminds me to keep hunting for a contour and separate bronzer that works for my skin tone.

  8. Once again I LOVE these posts, shopping your stash is always so much fun. I have come to realize I am a bronzer hoarder and love finding nice matte bronzers! (too faced is my current fav) The comments about the thief/makeup were hilarious, definitely would search for a good looking burglar in a moving van!

  11. Thanks so much for the idea on the DIY lip palette. I have been saving some empty pans to repurpose.
    I don't comment enough, but I really enjoy your blogs and videos. You always give such an honest assessment of products.
    I usually line up several of your videos and other YouTubers to watch while I hit the treadmill in the mornings.Thanks for getting me through my workouts!!

  14. In answer to the question, since I just started browsing around, if a burglar stole all of my beauty products...first, I'd laugh because they chose that over the various other things worth stealing. Then, I'd head to Ulta, Target, etc. to get what I need to look decent.
