Normally I’m all about the nude eye looks. But when I spotted the Chanel Illusion D’ombre eyeshadow in the color 83 Illusoire, I couldn’t resist taking it home. I have been wearing Illusoire ever since..
The Illusion D’ombre eyehadows are cream based eyeshadows. They are longwearing, but I would say not as longwearing as the MAC Paint Pots. Apply the color with your fingertop over your lid and blend out the edges for a daytime approved look. Want to spice it up? Then add more layers by padding the color onto the lid and use a small brush to apply Illusoire to the lower lash line. You really get an instant smoky effect and it looks gorgeous.
The color is a mixture between purple and taupe with lots of shimmers. By saying that, I don’t mean you will get a disco effect. That’s not the case! I suggest pairing Illusion D’ombre Illusoire with a light pink blush and lips. A chique and effortless look!
I notice when putting a beige toned primer underneath, the color is a bit more taupe than purple. When I use a different color as a base, it looks more purple.
Do you own a Chanel Illusion D’ombre eyeshadow? And which is your favorite color?
