Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadows Review and Swatches

I know that it is all about the new Chanel eye shadows now but I still want to share my love for the  Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadows.

I have two shades: 857 Rouge Noir and 83 Illusoire. While it took me forever to get the Rouge Noir, as it was always sold out everywhere back in the days, Illusoire was a present from a friend but I love it a lot, too. And since I have a bronze shade in a Stylo format (147 Caroube), I have  all the colours I need/use.

Both colours are incredibly beautiful and complex, you can get a sheer wash of colour with a

July 2017 Beauty Favourites

It feels like I am starting every monthly favourites with this. But how is it August already, the 8th month of the year? Where did 2017 go?

All that aside, here is a list of the things I have been loving in July, and please keep in mind that I am still loving/using all the products from the previous months, but I just want to mention the ones I haven’t mentioned before.

Makeup

theBalm  Balm Desert  (buy from  ASOSFeel Unique and Sephora.).

I have only discovered this product in July but I think this will be a new long-time favourite. There is no need to say that the formula is amazing, it always is when it comes to this brand. But what is so special about it then? It is the  shade which is perfect. Bronzer/Blush is a great description, as it is not your typical bronzer, it has a reddish undertone to it. When I first saw Balm Desert, it made me think of Dallas by Benefit but they are not the same at all.  Anyway, this products is great for adding colour to your face, and for gently sculpting it, too.
