Shopping My Stash

I thought I'd take a trip down memory lane today and brought out some products that had gotten lost in the shuffle for the last couple of years. Mainly Dior Amber Diamond, which will always hold a special place in my heart. *cue cheesy product pose*


If you're a longtime member of the online beauty community you will remember the Dior Amber Diamond craze. It peaked circa 2011 and everyone was talking about this highlighter. It was in fact the first highlighter I ever bought! It has since been discontinued and replace with the Diorskin Nude Shimmer Instant Illuminating Powder, which is a gorgeous but there's just something about the versatility of Amber Diamond that makes it irreplaceable. I wore it on my eyes and as a standard face highlighter in this look:


Other items I busted out of the archives for this look:
MAC Feline Kohl Power Eye Pencil - never underestimate the power of a freshly sharpened MAC Feline.
Burberry Light Glow Blush in Tangerine - gorgeous earthy peach shade, finely milled and has the perfect finish. I seriously feel bad for not touching it in months.
MAC Wholesome lipstick (limited edition from last summer, similar to Freckletone in their permanent rage) and YSL Gloss Pur in #7 which is so old it's discontinued. Womp.
Lip liner is Dior Grege which is something that I actually wear often so it doesn't really qualify as a forgotten love.

I know our wishlists keep growing and growing but this weekend I encourage you to shop your stash!! Show me what you rediscover :)

  2. Dior Amber Diamond is so pretty! Gah! And I totally agree, do not underestimate a newly sharpened kohl pencil. I've been dying to get my hands on Charlotte Tilbury's new kohl liners that she's come out with. Great post!
