Chanel ILLUSION D’OMBRE in Vision

May 22, 2014 comments   

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
No fallout
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. :)

Current Makeup Collection 2014

May 17, 2014 comments   

It’s been over a year since I’ve done a “current makeup” post. The last collection post was in April 2013. Unfortunately in a year’s time I’ve tried things, used them up, and didn’t or couldn’t rebuy so those things can’t be shown.

When taking these photos I realized I’m really happy with the amount I currently have. Not too much but not too lacking either for my needs. I used to feel like I always had too much and it gave me a lot of guilt. But I don’t sweat it much these days.
