Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Review & FOTD
All the shades in this longwear luminous eyeshadow range are stunners.
It was a toss up between the peach, the bronze, the black (don’t ask me to write out all the French names) and, well also the other 3 would have done quite nicely too.
I decided to be practical nonetheless and go for Emervielle, a shimmering peachy champagne colour.
Colour wise it is obviously similar to the following in my collection:
MAC Naked pigment (Emervielle is peachy and not as cool toned)
MAC Naked Lunch eyeshadow
MAC bare study paint pot (Emervielle is less sparkly)
No 7 Wheatsheaf eyeshadow (Emervielle is brighter)
It certainly rivals MAC paint pots for me as a creaseless base or stand alone shadow. In fact I even prefer it to Bare study a teeney bit as it’s softer and smoother in texture
This is the least made-up hopefully you’ll ever see me,
I’m wearing Emervielle on it’s own, a bit of blacktrack fluidline, Famous by Sue Moxley shimmer brick, Estee Lauder sumptuous extreme mascara and 17 skin adapt foundation-which offers about 1% coverage
The only downfall (apart from the price tag) is the application, it can takes a few layers to build opacity.
Other than that I am completely in love with it, it delivers on its’ promises of creaseless longwear and is brightening and beautiful.
I feel a hymn coming on…
Have you succumbed to these yet?
