Stash Stocktake: Blushes, Bronzers & Highlighters

Blushes, Bronzers and highlighters have really only been products which I’ve loved for a year or so. I think because my mum has never worn any of these products, I’ve never grown up around them (stealing them from her dressing table) and becoming associated with them from a young age like I did everything else.

Therefore, I thought – I won’t have that many in my collection, and actually I have more than I anticipated! I’ve not sidelined anything here for donation yet, there’s a lot of products here which I’m not sure about, but I have either not tried them for a long time, or have never tried them – so I’m not sure how they sit on my skin/skintone. I’m planning on doing a total at the end of the month so will report on anything given away then!

    Wow you have an addiction going on lol! I’m trying not to buy more blushes as I have the benefit set but I just find blushes so pretty! Lovely post to read! Xxx

    I don’t own a lot of blushes, I think I own 3 blushes, 3 bronzers, and 2 highlighters!

    I love blushes, you have a great collection! That Estee Lauder peach blush looks stunning!

        That is definitely the thing that sucks about Limited edition products!

    This is a great collection! It’s large enough that you have a nice selection of products to choose from but not so much that it goes to waste 🙂 Jay x

    Wow, look at that pan in the Sleek palette! Good job.
    I really like the looks of those MyFace Cosmetics – too bad the brand is gone!
    I have NO blushes in common with you – just goes to show what a wide range of preferences and offering are out there.

      You can tell which out of the sleek palette I like, think I’ll repurchase the single and throw out the palette when it’s finished – I’m too heavy handed for the others, they’re too pigmented! I had a bronzer from my face and it was the best, perfect shade for subtle contouring, sad they’ve stopped!

      Have still yet to try the blush – totally forgot, think it’s slipped to the back of my drawer, but the highlighter is to die for! Seriously good on X
