I was lucky enough to receive this absolutely BEAUTIFUL Chanel Illusion D’Ombre eye shadow for Christmas – how lucky am I? I have lusted after it for a little while and it truly is one of the most lovely eyeshadows I have ever used. Even the little glass pot and applicator are perfectly designed (I’m such a sucker for sumptious packaging!) – the applicator means you can apply it as an eye shadow or at a right angle as an intense gold eye liner.
The shade I have is ’89 -Vision’ which is a deep metallic gold shade. I tried to swatch it but to be honest I just couldnt get the light right to convey the irridescent effect of this shade – it’s almost more tiny, tiny, flecks of gold rather than full coverage like a regular eyeshadow. The texture is so silky smooth – it simply glides on and lasts for HOURS. I absolutely love it – if you are looking for the perfect gold eye shadow then look no further.
You can buy the Chanel Illusion D’Ombre from selected Boots stores for £23.00 or online.
