BEAUTY: The forgotten products.

Rediscovered-beauty-products-blog-post-including-bobbi-brown-the-body-shop-and-topshop

I'm sure many of you can relate when I say that my collection of makeup includes more products than what the average person has. It's very easy to focus on the newer items in your stash leaving some of your old favourites neglected at the back of the drawer. Am I right? 

Last weekend I decided to get out all my makeup, have a bit of a rearrange, clean/sanitize everything and in the process rediscover some items that I actually forgot that I owned! This is something I highly recommend doing on a regular basis, not only does it keep everything nice,
clean & in order - It's also beneficial bacteria wise, that sounds horrible but you know what I mean! It really makes a difference when you give your palettes a bit of a wipe down though. They look practically new!

To start, we have the Shimmer cube palette from The Body Shop. It's called a palette but to me its just individual shadows stored in a cube really! I digress, it's a beautiful selection of shadows, perfect for an everyday natural eye look. The colours are extrememly pigmented, You can see in the past I used the lightest shade A LOT, however it's now bag in my 'every day' makeup bag and I am making an effort to use some of the other shadows as it would be a shame to them to be neglected! They blend really nicely, so you can create some really lovely looks combining the different shades. The Body shop do offer other shades like blues, purples etc. Definitely a product I recommend checking out.

I haven't used a cream blusher in a while so when I rediscovered this Bobbi Brown pot rougue in Melon I automatically put it into my everyday makeup bag. As you can see it was already well loved so the chances are if I use this enough I will finish it in no time! The pot rouge's are multi tasking creams that can be used both on the cheeks and your lips, however I predominantly use mine on my cheeks! Fresh melon gives me a lovely natural, dewy pop of colour which is great for everyday use.

Finally, despite givng all my attention to my new highlighter mentioned in this post, I dug out this old favourite of mine. Topshop glow highlighter in Gleam. As you can see it was a firm favourite before! pretty inexpensive at £9 for the pot as a little goes a long way, lasting you a long time! The shade gleam provides a lovely golden highlight, I highly recommend this shade over 'Polish'. Swatched polish looks lovely, however when you apply it over other makeup it removes it! Gleam all the way!

Have you rediscovered any products recently?

Much love

  1. I actually threw out a lot of make up last year so I only have the ones I mainly use in my make up bag now! The past year or so I only wear make up if I am going out! x

  10. Over half of my collection is forgotten about, I totally feel you, sometimes it's hard to use it all. I have a LOT of makeup but still find myself wearing the same look every day. I should be more adventurous!

  11. That is a good idea and something I need to try one day soon. I owned the shimmer cube palette from Body shop too but ran out a while ago. It was one of my favourites too.

  12. I know what you mean. Sometimes I buy two of everything because I can't find it and then months later I find it!

  14. I like the colour palette. I've actually got that one from the same store in the same shade. What a coincidence. Angela at Daysinbed

  16. Over the years I've stopped wearing cosmetics. I find they have a tendency to dry my skin out and the weather up here just isn't make-up friendly! However, when I did wear makeup I used to buy that very same Body Shop shimmer cube! I thought it looked familiar in your photo! I really did love that. Maybe I ought to get back into it... :)

  24. I absolutely love Topshop Beauty products but I am yet to try out that highlighter! x

  25. Having a good old makeup sort out always turns up some old gems! I recently rediscovered an old YSL bronzer that I completely forgot I had, so it's always worth having a clear out. The Bobbi Brown cream blush sounds great, the colour is gorgeous :) X

  26. I seem to collect many items and not use, we recently moved and I had a good clear out of beauty products during that so at the moment I just have what I actually use.

  28. I hardly ever go to Topshop for makeup - I need to give them a try and get a few bits and bobs for my holiday. Ive heard their eye makeup is the nicest. I tend to throw away a lot of products I don't use any more even if their in date which is stupid as I can go back to using them if they are in date hmmm. Thanks for posting this hun
