Chanel Illusion d'Ombre in Emerveille: debenhams (£22.50)
Chanel Illusion d'Ombre in Emerveille is a soft peach with a goldy champagne shimmery sheen. It sort of reminds me of MAC All that Glitters in a different form. The formula is really unique, I've never tried anything like it before. Its a gel like texture that feels like a soft mousse, sort of puffy and cushiony. They have a "bounce back" feel when you touch the product. Chanel Illusion d'Ombre wear really well, around 12 hours without primer, no creasing no fading, it doesnt move and it doesnt smudge. I wear it all over the lid and then in the inner corner and slightly smudged under the eye. I think its absolutely beautiful.
I've never really bought a backup of a eye product before. Eye shadows are the kind of thing that I seem to get bored. A little bit disposable, I have palettes full of MAC shadows I never use (I probably wear Gleam, Paradisco and Expensive Pink the most), so I just don't tend to buy them. After seeing a few comments on the Chanel Illusion d'Ombre on blogs and twitter, I caved in and bought one and I've used it pretty much daily since. Im not at the stage where I really needed a new one, but with alot of Chanel products I like being discontinued at the moment, I just had to get another. I got the backup with a voucher I was given at the Debenhams Press day
Honestly this is my favourite product I've bought in 2011. I can wholeheartedly say I'd buy this again if I ran out again. Its quick and simple to blend out, can be worn alone or as a base under another product. It is expensive, but I really do think its worth the money, Plus its Chanel... which to me is one of those "justifiable" brands! Highly recommended!
Sorry there isnt any photos of it in use, I have very little lid space when I open my eyes and dont really like swatches! But if you look at any of my blog photos where Im not wearing pink eyeshadow,Im wearing this.
