Chanel ILLUSION D’OMBRE in Vision
May 22, 2014
Purchased two of Chanel’s cream eyeshadows a few weekends ago after Karme convinced me they were the bees knees. I originally just went for the shade mirage. A neutral shimmery beige. However when I saw the gold shade of vision with its stunning chunks of sparkle I got it as well. I had been looking for a gold cream shadow to replace the Dolly Wink version I tossed months ago.
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre
Sparkles like a star (photo doesn’t do it justice)
Easy to apply
Easy to remove
No creasing when used with an eyeshadow base
Application brush is really stiff
Some sparkles left after initial face washing
The application brush is a lot stiffer than I thought it would be. It’s ok for applying the color as a liner but I haven’t quite found a good use for it. Also there is some dreaded “leftover” sparkle after washing away the eyeshadow at first but a quick second splashing can remove that. I haven’t been stuck with glitter all over my face for days like I have been with other cream glittery shadows. If I accidentally touch too low under my eye when applying I can simply wet a tissue and wipe it away easily.
The mirage color is even easier to apply and remove and both of these are great for low-maintenance makeup days. Really glad I got these. :)
