Out With The New and In With The Old...

As with most beauty obsessives, I sometimes find myself drowning in products- too much make up and not enough faces to put it on. For this reason, every so often I will have a little route around my make up bag and rekindle my love for some of the products that I have neglected in favour of my brand new purchases. I've put together a few of the products I have fallen back in love with recently:

Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch- I swapped my Clarins primer a little while ago for Urban Decay's Pore Perfecting Primer as I fancied a change (y'know how it is) but I will always have a space in my heart for Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch. I love this primer because it feels so light on the skin- not greasy in the slightest- and foundation looks flawless on top of it.
Topshop Glow in Gleam - I will admit that I am quite fickle when it comes to highlighters. I couldn't even tell you how many I own and I have no issue with replacing one as soon as another comes along. I always seem to go back to this little pot of Topshop goodness though as it is so easy to blend and gives me the right amount of shimmer- not too much and not too little!
Barry M Fuchsia Nail Polish - This is one of the first Barry M nail polishes I ever purchased (probably around 6/7 years ago!) and it is still going strong. I always reach for this in the Summer months as you can't go wrong with the colour pink, especially one as bright as this one.
Bourjois Cream Blush in Rose Tender - I've always been a little scared when it comes to cream blushes as I fear I will end up looking Coco the Clown. Bourjois Cream Blush however is pretty fool proof. It's almost a cream to powder blush and gives a beautiful, subtle glow when applied on the cheeks.
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream- I seriously can't find fault with this product and I'm not sure why I stopped using it for a little while. It is perfect for anything from stings, dry skin, chapped lips, angry spots, stray eyebrows and shaving rashes. I have had this tube for around a year and I still haven't run out either. A little really does go a long way- it is a thick, gel like formula and I mainly prefer to use this on my lips and let it soak in over night.  
Topshop Lip Crayon in Wave Goodbye- Unfortunately, this product has been discontinued by Topshop now (boo!) but I used this religiously last Summer. I have given it a little sharpen and it's ready for it's second Summer now- it's a lovely pastel pink colour that goes with absolutely anything.
Dior Blackout Mascara- This really is an old school product for me- I remember buying this and for about a week after I couldn't get over the fact that I had just spend £24.50 on a mascara (look at me now!). This is a great product if you love dark, long lashes as it really makes a difference. It is one of the best mascaras I have ever used and there won't be a clump in sight.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter- I have neglected these poor lipsticks in favour for the newer Revlon lipstick launches, however, I grabbed the first one I could find before a meeting at work the other day and it just so happened to be Tutti Frutti. I forgot how gorgeous these lipsticks are and they feel so moisturising on the lips!
Is it just me that reverts back to 'old' products? Are there any products you have rekindled your love for lately?
