A cheeky Chanel purchase

A few weeks back while on holiday in Lanzarote, I picked up two of the Chanel Illusion D'ombre eye shadows.

Now I know there have been tons of posts and videos on these shadows, but the two shades I picked up didn't seem to get as much attention as the infamous Illusoire.


Emerveille is a peachy, neutral shadow that brightens the eye.

While Epatant is a silver, shimmery shade that sparkles as it catches the light and is truly beautiful!


I particularly love using these on the inner third of my eye and using a slightly darker shadow on the outer two thirds.

But even on their own they give a shiny, glossy effect that looks very special and unique!


The only downside to these shadows is that the texture of each shadow is slightly different. While Epatant is smooth and creamy, Emerveille is slightly more chunky and harder to apply. However, it doesn't affect the overall appearance of the shadow...so for me, I'm not too fussed!

Have you tried the Chanel Illusion D'ombre shadows? Have you tried any product that gives a similar effect as these?
