Chanel ILLUSION D’OMBRE in Vision
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. :)

I need to purge my eyeshadows because some of the palettes are repetitive and I really love the SUQQU one Karen sent me for my birthday. I think it can replace my two KATE shadows. So I’ll set them aside and see if I go for them anytime soon. Also the Dolly Wink rainbow crystal cream shadow I rarely wear. However the gold version I wear constantly.
I might purge a few blushes too like the Lavshuca because the color is reptitive in my collection.
Most of the opened mascaras are nearly finished. I’ll be opening the Trish McEvoy one very soon. Same with the eyeliners. The 3 middle liquid liners are nearly out.
The Paul and Joe pressed powder is hitting a lot of pan. It’s why I bought the Hourglass powder to replace it. I’ve been using the Hourglass for a week and so far no break outs! Same with the YSL concealer pen. I tried a free sample and liked it so much that it’s my new “go to” concealer. I got it last week with the Hourglass powder and so far no break outs from it either.
Also I thought I had taken a photo of the Burt’s Bees and a few lip balms I use but I couldn’t find it. I like some of their lip tints.
I’m liking the benetint and watts up. Sometimes Benefit face creams (like That Gal) break me out but so far no break outs from these two items. I used the Girl Meets Pearl a few times but not consistently enough to say whether or not it will break me out.
