Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadows Review and Swatches

I know that it is all about the new Chanel eye shadows now but I still want to share my love for the  Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadows.

I have two shades: 857 Rouge Noir and 83 Illusoire. While it took me forever to get the Rouge Noir, as it was always sold out everywhere back in the days, Illusoire was a present from a friend but I love it a lot, too. And since I have a bronze shade in a Stylo format (147 Caroube), I have  all the colours I need/use.

Both colours are incredibly beautiful and complex, you can get a sheer wash of colour with a multi-dimensional shimmer or layer it on for a more intense effect. You can see the swatches below.

As for the texture, the eye shadows feel very soft and cushion-like, so you can apply them even with your fingers.

Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadows used to crease on me very badly but lately they don’t, and stay put very well, and I can’t quite figure out what I am doing differently but I can’t complain about it.

Anyway, as you can see I really love these, and would definitely try the new Chanel cream eye shadows.

Chanel is  available from NordstormSaks, Neiman Marcus, Selfridges and  Harrods.
