Beauty Gems I Forgot I Had | Shopping My Stash

Shopping My Stash Beauty Products

Hello im Emma and yes im a Makeupoholic! My makeup collection is becoming a little obsessive. I have recently got a 5 storey draw unit to hold most of my makeup so i can have each draw for certain products. I own over 30 foundations now and i still can't stop buying them! Someone stop me! I finally decided it was time to have a look through and switch up my makeup routine. Searching and searching and trying products i forgot i had, i have come across some gems which i will not forget again.

I tried the L'Oreal True Match Foundation a few years ago and hated it! I purchased it again a few months ago but put it straight in my draw. I tried it again and yes i finally love it! My skin has changed over the last few years and it seems this foundation now agrees with me. The coverage can be built up to full coverage, looks flawless and lasts well. 

Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder | £3.99
This powder is amazing! The Seventeen Miracle Matte Powder comes in pressed or loose and i adore both versions. It keeps my makeup looking flawless and helps my oily skin.

Makeup Revolution Baked Blush "one for playing" | £2.50
I love Makeup Revolution blushers especially the Makeup Revolution Baked Blushers but this beauty is my all time favourite. It is is light purple shade which has a slight shimmer. It looks gorgeous in the sun and really gives a pretty glow with a hint of colour.

NYX Nude Matte Eyeshadows | £5.00
If you want good quality eyeshadows at a bargain price then the NYX Nude Matte Eyeshadows & NYX Glam Shadows are it! The come in packaging similar to the Mac Shadows and the shades are gorgeous. 

Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Primer | £19.50
The Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Primer was the first high end primer i purchased a few years ago and this is my third bottle of it which i forgot i had! It is very similar to the Benefit primer but i find this one works better with my pores and reducing oil compared to the Benefit one. It really does smooth out my skin leaving a flawless base to work with.

  5. I have the L'oreal True Match foundation in my stash somewhere too but never use it as it's so pale! Might bring it out again and try mixing it with a darker one! The Urban Decay primer sounds lovely, I didn't even realise they did primers apart from the primer potions for eyelids!

  13. I just love the Makeup Revolution range right now; I have recently featured one of their shadow palettes on my blog if you fancy a read! :) The UD primer sounds so good, I have only heard great things about it. I have huge pores and am yet to find a primer that will tackle them, even Benefits POREfessional was no good! Lovely post :)xx

  17. Urban Decay's primers are blooming amazing! Completely with you on the L'Oreal True Match too. I used it religiously for about a year but it wouldn't always agree with my skin for some weird reason..? The coverage cannot be faulted though!
