Woohoo, I haven't done a favourites post in a couple of months but there are a few new products that I have been loving this past month that I had to share! I am looking forward to November because it brings an end to university for the year (finally) and I can get back to blogging and laying on the beach!
Another day, another beauty product
Last month I went shopping with my mum when I happened to come across a couple of the L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadows marked down in a bargain bin, in the colours Forever Pink and Flashback Silver. Picking those up made me dig out the other two I owned in Iced Latte and Goldmine, and I have been using them non stop this month. They are simply the best eye shadows I have ever tried from a low end brand.
If you aren't familiar with the product they are basically a pressed pigment eye shadow that come in a screw top package. They go on smooth, pigmented and metallic. Now I'm thinking I want to go ahead and collect every shade...

I feel like I've sampled a few different products from Chanel's makeup line now, and in my opinion, these guys are worth the price tag. They're called Illusion D'ombres, fancy name - fancy product. The formulation is a gel mousse texture and they are automatically what I reach for on special occasions.
Illusoire is a beautiful taupe purple and Epatant is a taupeish green. These colours are so complex, so sparkly, and so so special in my makeup collection. The apply beautifully and last all day. Love.

A brand that I have been continually impressed with, product after product has been the Balm. I invested in their bronzer, Bahama Mama a few months ago now and it is a fantastic colour. The packaging is also probably the most adorable thing ever.
Now you might be looking at think and thinking, but Mishelle, you're a pale ass bitch, how are you going to wear this? Whilst it is a dark colour, it blends like no other. One swipe with a contour brush and I'm done!
A lipstick I haven't been able to stop wearing recently is Dior's Rouge Dior Nude in the colour Swan. This is just a beautiful every day pink that wears amazingly and I feel would suit a lot of people. My only gripe with this lipstick is that the smell is a little old fashioned.
Lastly I wanted to mention a skincare favourite of the month, which has been Aesop's Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream. If you have dry or dehydrated skin, this is your guy. Filled with a zillion amazing oils, it is very thick and a little oily but my skin drinks it up within a few minutes of application. I think as the weather continues to heat up I will switch to just using this at night time and use a lighter moisturizer under makeup but for now I have been using it both evening and night.

I think I officially have an obsession with textured nail polish. I am snapping them up left, right and centre lately! I posted some swatches of the OPI Liquid Sands I have here if you'd like to see more.
