Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadow

Illusion D'Ombre is new type of shadow from Chanel. It's a cream to powder basically ,but it's not quite basic.

The texture in the pot is almost spongy and the shadow is very creamy. It blends really well on the eye and dries down fast.  The packaging says "Long Wear" and I have to say it wore  pretty well on me (using a base) and cream shadows rarely do. So if it wore  ok on me, then most of you will find it wears really well.

On the eye it's very shimmery, which I happen to love. The shade Emerveille shown at top is a light peach and really opens and brighten the eyes.

Illusoire is a deep purple which shows in the photo of the product but the swatch looks more smoky . The color in the pot is the color that ends up on eyes. It's more purple/plum than smoky  and goes on deep but not goth dark.
Silly thing, but I  love the little brush that comes with it. The brush works fine with the shadow , but I find using my fingers still works best for me.  I love the brush mainly because it's cute and small and says Chanel.

This is the shadow that was debuted at the brands Fall/Winter show in February. The model shown, who looks amazing, is wearing the charcoal shade I beleive.

On counters now  at Chanel in six shades.  $ 36.00
