What it is: An "intensely shimmering long-wear eyeshadow". The shadow can be used as an all over lid color, on the crease or depending on the color can be intensified as an eyeliner.
Packaging: The Illusion D'Ombre's are packaged in a beautiful heavy glass pot with the CHANEL C's printed in white. A small travel eyeliner brush is included with the Illusion D'Ombre.
Verdict: I decided to pick up the shade Illusoire, which is a taupe with a mixture of brown, silver and purple. I thought that out of the color selection provided, Illusoire is one I can wear often, for daytime or smoking it out for nighttime. The product is a blend of intense shimmers (not chunky glitter), and looks beautiful when worn. The texture of the these shadows is interesting. When you open the product, you will notice that the consistency appears fluffy. Although it does blend softly on the lid, it does not have the creamy texture as per say a cream eyeshadow. As previously stated, the Illusion D'Ombre can be worn as a base for other shadows, as a wash of color all over the lid, as liner or on the crease. The wear longevity of this products is fantastic. It does not crease, even without a base and holds itself beautiful for hours.
