Nail Polish Collection - Bottle Photos

I recently took on the project of arranging my polishes by color and swatching them in a small notebook I can easily take with me to ensure new polishes I see in stores are actually unique to my collection, as it's getting to the point where it's easy to have repeats. As a way of cataloging which polishes made which swatch, I took photos of them in the same order I swatched them. I didn't photograph the two Konad polishes or any of my base/topcoats, but this is everything else. As always, click the photos if you want to see them larger, and ask me if you have any more specific questions! 

Photos under the jump since there are six of them and I don't want it to load too slowly!

L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows

L-R: Golden Sage, Golden Emerald, Endless Sea, Gold Imperial, Glistening Garnet
Since getting my first two of these shadows in May, I've picked up a few more that caught my eye. I really like these! They go on very pigmented even without a base and they seem to last well. Plus I love the shades I have!

Do you have any of these shadows? What are your favorite shades?

All swatches are done on my bare arm, both blended out and just to show the straight color. If you have any questions about any of these or would like to see them differently, let me know! If I've used it in a FOTD post on here, you should be able to search for it and it will come up.

Except the baked blushes, Cargo blush, Jordana blushes, and the creams, they've all been depotted for ease of storage. I would depot the Jordana blushes but I don't have a good palette for them currently.

Let me know if you'd like swatch posts of any specific brands or products!

Current Favorite Products

For the first time ever I've decided to put together a favorites post! It's not really monthly favorites, since not all of this was acquired in the previous month. It does include things I've gotten over the summer - nothing that's been a favorite for a very long time or that I've previously repurchased. 

If you want to know anything about any of these products, just ask! Some of them I have already done blog posts about, and others I'm planning to do soon.
Nail polishes: OPI - Metallic 4 Life, Essie - Set in Stones, Lights, Milani - White on the Spot
Foundation: Neutrogena Shine Control foundation
Blushes: Jordana - Tawny Beige, Cargo - Key Largo
Powder Eyeshadows: L'Oreal Infallible - Endless Sea, Glistening Garnet, Golden Emerald, Cargo - Tahiti quad, Jordana - A Classic (this is the top left shade in the palette that says Covergirl)
Cream Eyeshadow - Milani Shadow Eyez - Champagne Toast
Perfume: Marc Jacobs - Oh Lola!
Lip products: Revlon Kissable Balm Stain - Smitten, MAC lipstick - Impassioned
Other products: Up & Up blotting sheets, Covergirl custom compacts (I found these at a dollar store, and each contained some pans of lipstick which I did not keep. I like these for storing singles as they have clear lids unlike the ELF palettes)
Brushes: Sonia Kashuk - Synthetic Flat Top Multipurpose Brush, Large Crease Brush
