Shop my Stash // week of 03.03.19 // ride or die

Hello Friends! Another week, another shop my stash! Once I finish this week’s use of makeup, I might switch around how I do my shop my stash’s or switch around this style altogether since a lot of what I use stays the same. But, I’ll focus on that in a bit!


I used most of the items I set out to last week. I did use the Tarte palette for about two full looks and then incorporated the shadows a bit for one look that I split between both Colourpop and Tarte. Still in the process of testing out the Milani foundation but I like the coverage so far, and the highlighting trio from Milani is gorgeous; albeit it’s definitely filled with glitter than shimmer but still beautiful on the cheeks.

Items I’m Decluttering:

  • the Covergirl concealer – all finished up!
  • Maybelline eyeliner in a bronze shade – I rarely wear eyeliner and I tried wearing this this week and just didn’t like the outcome


Overview of this week’s products

Hard Candy Color Correcting Primer, Maybelline Master Prime Primer 100, Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, Physician’s Formula Healthy Foundation, Maybelline Fit Me Powders (Loose and Pressed)

It is my birthday this week, so there’s some plans involved this week which means my makeup must look flawless! Which in turn means I’m choosing my ride or die favourites (that I currently own) to be a part of my makeup routine this week. So, most of these have been in the rotation already, but the Estee Lauder Double Wear is my favourite high end foundation and I love the way this looks blended out with my beauty sponge.

Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer, theBalm Mary Lou-manizer, MAC’s Soft and Gentle, Tarte Blush in the shade Adventurous, Pretty Vulgar highlighter, Laura Geller blush

These are some of my all-time cheek favourites! Can’t go wrong with my butter bronzer, and the Mary Lou-manizer is my favourite highlight. But I couldn’t choose just one for the week. MAC’s Soft and Gentle is a golden highlight, and I also chose a highlighter I received in Boxycharm from Pretty Vulgar as it’s a rosy champagne colour.

My two favourite blushes are the Tarte (mini) Adventurous blush and another Boxycharm fave from Laura Geller.

Essence Lash Princess Mascara, Tarte Tarteist Pro Palette, ABH Subculture Palette

The Essence Lash Princess mascara is my absolute favourite and it costs less than $5!

Don’t mind the dirty fingerprints! These two palettes don’t have the best packaging, but boy do I love them! The Tarteist palette is great to create more neutral, everyday looks and I already know which couple days this week I want to wear this palette.

Subculture, while it can be difficult to use, just has the grungiest colours that I love, and for the most part, I love every look that I’ve created with it and am excited to play with it this week!

I didn’t pick any lip products this week because with the frigid wind in the GTA, my lips have just been begging for good ol’ lip balm instead!

So, yes, I might finish out my Shop my Stash series in the next few weeks after I declutter some more palettes from my collection and then I’m thinking about starting the Pan Those Eyeshadows challenge. But I will cross that bridge when I come to it!

Have a great day everyone!
