Recent Re-Discoveries

I'm sure that many of my fellow beauty bloggers can relate to me when I say that when you have so many products, it's easy to forget about some of them from time to time. This happens to me on a regular basis but recently, I have been consciously trying to make use of some of these forgotten gems that have been pushed to the back of my stash! So today, I wanted to show you some of my recent re-discoveries. Let's jump right in!

MAC Crosswires Lipstick
Crosswires is the first lipstick that I ever bought from MAC and I hadn't worn it in such a long time... until now. I don't know whether its the sudden bout of sunshine we're having here in the UK that's bought on my love for all things coral once again but I have been wearing this gorgeous shade a lot more lately!

Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in India Intrigue 
It's fair to say that when the Moisture Stains came out, they were very much a 'Marmite' product. Some people loved them, like myself, but others hated the formula. However, I personally love how it is a high pigmented gloss that then leaves you with a subtle long-lasting stain afterwards. I love this shade in particular as it suits my skin tone really well and I am so glad that I have re-discovered it.

O.P.I Nail Lacquer in You're Such A Budapest

Now that spring has sprung, I'm getting back into wearing bright and pastel colours on my nails again. I had well and truly forgotten about this polish until the other day but I'm glad that I found it in my stash. It's a soft blue with a tiny hint of lilac, that goes opaque in just two coats and is pretty chip resistant too!

Clinique High Impact Mascara

I re-disovered this Clinique mini when I was clearing out my never-ending make-up bag and it made me remember how much I loved it. This mascara is perfect for everyday wear when you want your lashes to look lengthened, yet natural at the same time. It gives you that perfect, although subtle fluttery finish.

So guys, those are my four recent re-discoveries! Let me know if you have tried any of the products above before, I'd love to get your take on them. Also, have you found any old hidden gems in the depths of your make-up collection? Please let me know if you have by popping a comment down below!
