Shop Your Stash 2

Since a few of us are on a "no-buy" it might be a good idea to "shop our stashes" again and encourage eachother to behave!  Smiley Happy


Today I dug out my Too Faced "Fun in the Dark" palette for eyeshadow and blush and then also used two new swap items NARS lipstick "Tzigane" and UD shadow pencil "Rehab".

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

Good idea! I saw this before I did my makeup today. Smiley Happy

I decided to use Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Toasted, (which I don't remember ever using, even though it's really pretty) and Free Love. (I also have never used, lol.)

And then I used a Sephora bronzer (that I've had for over a year. Or two...) as a blush, and a Revlon Mineral Lipglaze in unlimited nectar.

Another thing, I found a mascara I hadn't used, Revlon grow luscious, and it looks really good! I did two coats and it looks as good as my other higher end mascaras on my lashes, but definitely a whooole lot cheaper.

I decided for a "no buy july" and I think this shop your stash might help! thanks!!

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

I will be needing to shop my stash frequently in the coming months!


A few days ago, I brought back NARS Cruising -- it's a staple, but I have been wearing a lot of gloss lately and forgot how much I love Cruising. I have been wearing it ever since! I also ran out of eyeliner a little while ago, and I found a NARS Black Moon (it's not old -- I had just put it aside). I rotate blush shades so quickly I can't help but forget about them (this is my weakness; I probably have 60+) -- and I found an older Chanel JC called Poésie, which is a glowing pink shade...I love this stuff.


: )

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

This is great!  I loved this thread before.  Today I'm wearing:


Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua (for a foundation, this doesn't FEEL like one!)

Clinique Gradient Blush in Black Honey

Dior 5-color eyeshadow in Pink Design and using the gel liner in the palette

Clinique Redness Solutions Corrector stick

Clinique Redness Solutions pressed powder

DiorSkin Nude hydrating concealer

Chanel Illuminator

Laura Mercier brightening powder

Buxom Amplified Lash mascara

Clinique Lipstick/gloss in Black Honey


Can anyone tell I went for a "glamorous" look today?  Plan on seducing the husband tonight...the makeup will definitely help with that!Smiley Very Happy

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

Today I broke out some green eyeshadow!  I wore Clinique's cream shadow in Starlit Palm (never been used, EVER) and found where I ended up putting the High Impact Lipstick in Honey Blush, which paired really well with the shadow.  Back to the Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisturizer for today, too!

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

Katie:  Do you still have 60+ blushes?

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

I think it might be more like 100 at this point (but I haven't bought any in a while! At some point, how different can another shade of pink (or peach, etc.) really be?). It's actually embarrassing!

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

I found an old sample of Stila's kitten eyeshadow and will use it little by little until my It Girl #2 Palette arrives with it and two other colors... Smiley Very Happy

Re: Shop Your Stash 2 I wore:


(Sorry Sephora that the eye is pretty much all MAC...)


Eye: UDPP, MAC All that Glitters (inner 1/2 of lid and inner corner), MAC Soba (outer 1/2 of lid and blended into the crease a bit), MAC Bronze (outer V and a bit on the crease), Maybelline Full n' Soft Waterproof


Cheek: Benefit's Posietint


Lip: Tarte Natural Lipsurgence Lip Luster in Frisky

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

I have been reading up on what the trends are going to be this fall and have been checking my stash to see what I already have. I already have the "fresh face" in my main makeup organizer since that trend never seems to go out of style (my secondary organizer is a three-drawer plastic organizer in my linnen closet). Got a few red and wine glosses. Got at least two gold eye shadows as well as metallic shadows from various pallets. Got a green shadow.


This coming Labor Day I'll be reorganizing my makeup organizer with the fall trends makeup.

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

shyvicki: I should do that too! Great idea! Gotta shop my stash before I shop Sephora for fall trends!

*10 minutes later*


Okay. Got 1 red gloss. No liquid or gel liner for winging, just pencil. Lots of bright shadow I can turn into liner. Smiley Happy


Going bare faced today. Smiley Surprised

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

This is such a great idea!  I can't believe I didn't see this post before.  I'm definitely going on a no-buy for September and possibly October if I can be good Smiley Happy  So I rediscovered my Too Faced Glamour to go pocket palette, and have been experimenting with my lime green and olive green as a mix in my crease...definitely a new go to look!  Besides that, I rediscovered my Benefit Her Name was Glowla kit, so I'm determined to use up those shadows before buying any more.  haha Wish me luck! Smiley Happy

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

I rediscovered some of my Smashbox Lip Enhancing Glosses... I purchased the boxed set with 6 mini glosses. I stopped using them because I felt they were too shimmery and smelled/tasted bad.


Today I put on the True Color gloss in Brown Sugar and WOW!! It's such a beautiful nude shade. It looks like a dark shimmery brown, but on my lips it's a beautiful nude color! Perfect for the Fall! I'm so in love with it and feel ashamed that I've been ignoring it since I bought it 3 months ago. It still has a weird smell, but it doesn't linger any longer than a couple minutes.


I'm really happy that I rediscovered it Smiley Happy especially since I'm on a no-buy! Ugh!

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

I miss this thread and totally need to join in. There's a lot of makeup that I haven't used in awhile (its not expired, its just been sitting around waiting its turn again lol). A couple of weeks ago I reorganized my skincare stash and now that everything is in one place (well the backup skincare I mean) I noticed that there's a LOT of stuff I still haven't had a chance to use. I need to look through my makeup stash and see what I haven't used in awhile and bring it back to life!

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

Going along with sephoramusthave's necro, doing a summer no buy, free samples don't count though! Smiley Very Happy who's in?  I know starletta8 is Smiley Wink

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

I've managed to not buy anything for a good 10 days now Smiley Happy  feels like FOREVER

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

3 days has been rough- even though my prior purchases are still rolling in!

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

Oh my gosh, yes, I need to do this again too!

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

Makes me feel bad when i shop my stash and I find products that I know I love but get pushed aside for the new stuff I think i must have in my life when I see them. I hate to neglect my makeup so shopping my stash sounds like a really good idea. What goodies have we overlooked in order to but the LE collections that companies put out to entice us to buy buy buy since they wont be around for long??? Does anyone else have this issue that you get automatically drawn into and buy anything that says new or LE you think you must buy it since it will be gone soon Or is it just me....... No, Just me.... ok??  I'll join you on this for sure!!! Shopping my stash!!!!!

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

@pinklissamel -

Regarding the new or LE - Yes!  My initial impulse is too click "add to cart" immediately!  After I started realizing I have multiple brands of similar colors I starting resisting though.  I turn to beauty blogs to help me out.  Temptalia is great for reviewing and then and letting you know what products are similar so you can decide if you "need" a new one!

Re: Shop Your Stash 2

I don't think I have anything LE.....I have some things that have been discontinued but I had no way of knowing that it would be discontinued when I bought the item. MAC is the worst I think....they make new LE things like crazy but unless I really really love the color I don't care if its LE.


And yes.....TEMPTALIA! Christine saves me money all the time. Sometimes I want to try a super high end brand but if I see that the grade is less than a B then no way. If it has a high price, it better have an A from Christine!
