Playing Shop in your Stash

My dear blogger friend Paris Beaverbanks started a lovely topic in her blog called "Let's Play Shop in your Stash" (check out her blog for rules and goals)

I want to be part of it as it's fun! I only need to look at my stash on skincare, make-up, clothes or anything I own that is over 5 months that I haven't used in a while and blog about it. It's like a wake-up call for me...to appreciate what I have and what works for me and stop me from lusting on more! *ouch * lol

Here goes, I shopped at my stash last night and I saw my Paul & Joe Dual Crayons! Everybody knows I'm a P&J Addict but sad to say, I've been buying so much that I tend to play favorites and leave some of them behind.

In the photo below, I have 2 but I will talk about the P&J Dual Crayon no. 3 (the one in White and Red) in which I have for months now but I didn't have the chance to use it because.....I only have one face and I hauled so much :O




Available at Paul & Joe Rustan's Makati for Php950.00 (approx USD22.00)


Swatches




Both pencils are wonderful, I have been using Paul & Joe Dual Crayon no. 1 everyday. It has the blue side and the black side. I love it that it's dual purpose, and it doesn't crease, glides easily on the waterline and best of all? It lasts all day!

What I NEED to use is my P&J Dual crayon no. 3 which is the white eyeliner and red lipliner! The lovely SA of Paul & Joe Rustan's Makati Von (not sure the spelling) recommended me to buy this because aside from getting 2 products in 1, I have a lipliner that works on any lipcolor plus a white eyeliner that brightens the inner corner of your eye like you had 8 hours of sleep!

I seldom use lipliner and I'm too lazy to line my eyes with a white eyeliner after using a black eyeliner. So it was left in my stash and it's just right for me to wake this liner up after it's hibernation!

Thanks to Paris B for reminding us to always SHOP IN OUR STASHES before we go lemming for more products! :)

What about you?
Care to share what's left in your stash that's worth looking back?

    Ai, yes, lol I am the P&J addict LOL Sad to say, but true... which eyeshadow base are you talking about? I have tried their eyegloss and it works really really well, makes any shadow appear more vibrant. I have used their face primer, and its nice too! I love the new version! I haven't really check out their eyeshadow base though :( Hmmmm...am I missing anything? lol

  16. RenRen, can't wait to see what's in your stash :)

    Ai, true, i saved up P&J stuffs too, I heard they are coming up with new collections. But true about P&J being good quality brand

    Cinthia twin! LOL Everyone associates me with P&J lol

    Aprecia, you don't have to have a big stash, you can search whatever you have now, clothing, or bags, or shoes that you have for months and haven't used much :)

    Jo, no way! I am looking at those liners and I want to shop there! lol

    Fuz, it's a pretty universal lip color

    Tracy, I'm sure you'll find lots of stuffs in your stash worth checking back :D
