Shopping my stash - October

I'm several weeks into my spending ban and I've decided it's time to make the most of my stash and pick out some items which I haven't used for a while, and some I haven't used at all (bad Kat). 

Vivo Colour Block Dreamy* - this is the first bit of makeup I've ever tried from Vivo, but it looks a lot like a dupe for Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette. The shades are gorgeous neutrals and I'm looking forward to seeing how it compares to the Urban Decay one. 

Bourjois cream blush shade 03 - I've been neglecting this colour blush for a Liz Earle one lately, and it's time to get it back out of the drawer. The formula of these Bourjois blushers is amazing - they stay put all day and give a natural flush of colour.

Illamasqua Wink and Hemlock* polishes - I bought Wink in the Illamsqua sale a few months ago and have actually used it yet. Hemlock is the most lovely pearlescent top coat that I plan to layer on top for a sort of custom shade polish. 

Tony Moly Petite Bunny gloss bar - This was a random ebay purchase from Asia a while back after having a 'that's so cute!' moment at the little bunny ears design. It's actually a really soft, slightly tinted lip balm and I'll be popping it in my handbag. 

Mane n Tail Hoofmaker hand cream - this hand cream was originally created for horse hoofs, but was so successful at softening the hands of the people looking after them, that it's been bottled and being sold in Liberty! It really does make hands super soft and now the weather is getting colder, I'll be keeping this on my desk at work to stop my hands getting dry and chapped.

  1. That Mane & Tail reminds me of E.A. Eight Hour cream. That was something she originally came up with to treat her horses hooves.

  2. I need to shop my stash more often. It is amazing what products we have tucked away that get forgotten about.
    I really like the Vivo palette and think the colours are beautiful. I take mine when I travel as it has everything I need.
    The Tony Moly Petite Bunny gloss bar is sooooo cute! I need one of these in my collection.
    Good luck with the spending ban x

  3. Both of those Illamasqua polishes look beautiful! :)


  4. Love the look of that Vivo palette!

  5. Really would love to try Illamasqua nail products at some stage. Great stash!!

  6. Sometimes products you have forgotten you have actually make a nice surprise. The nail polishes are gorgeous!
