CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre #86 Ebloui Review, Photos, Swatches, Look

I got interested in fall 2011 cream shadow from Chanel from the first sight, but even more so — after the first internet reviews of their durability and swatches, where I could see a very beautiful sparkle and rather thick color. I went on ebay and — lo and behold — I was able to buy the latest #Ebloui from a seller! If there was more choice, I could be tempted by #Mirifique and #Illusoire too. Although now, the more I look at the rest of the shades, the more convinced I am that Ebloui is the one for me. They are so beautifully suited for brown eyes and warm type! I tried to put on color lenses, but then quickly took them off, because what happened was not so expressive.

The color is red-brown with pink and green sparkles. The texture is rather unusual, I never came across any similar. This is sort of a ball of cream mousse. I can compare it, perhaps, to cream blush from YSL.

 

Left to right: over a black pencil, feathered by finger and smudged by brush.

As you can see, there are many options to wear.

Eyeshadows are very easy to feather with finger, but applyig with a brush I liked less (by the way, the added brush is good, tight and beveled, but with pitifully small handle). Another thing is that collecting eyeshadow on the brush is difficult. I got to use the brush like a shovel, but then the shadows fall off in tiny pieces.




Left: Eyeshadow applied thickly with finger, and on a fixed feather brush. For lower eyelid, I also did the shadows type liner. For the purpose of eyeliner, I liked useing Laura Mercier Cream Eyeshadow Brush. You should apply this eyeshadow rather quickly, as it dries fast. Lipstick is Rouge d’Armani #102.

Right: Ebloui on a tanned face looks totally like it belongs there. By the way, while sprinkling water, it became clear that eyeshadows are not waterproof and easy to smudge with finger dipped in water.

Еще вариант, более вечерний. Внешний угол глаза выделен растушеванными черным карандашом. По нижней линии ресниц немного сиреневой тени из Dior #Extase Pinks, по верхней линии – зеленый из Shiseido #Tropicalia. Сверху этого всего пальцем нанесены #Ebloui.

Я постаралась показать разноцветные искорки, именно они вдохновили меня на использование цветного акцента в подводке. По идее надо было бы этот акцент делать карандашом. В следующий раз так и сделаю.

К сожалению, моя декоративная косметика не настолько обширна, чтобы сравнить эти тени с чем-то. Поэтому отправляю вас для этого дела к Café Makeup.  Правда, одного сравнения у нее нет, а именно оно сразу пришло мне в голову: Armani Eyes To Kill Intense #4 Rich and Rare, который холоднее, но по смыслу очень похож и шиммером, и нанесением.

Вот такие Illusion D’Ombre. Я рада, что к моим Армани-Интенсам прибавилась еще одна выразительная вечерняя краска для глаз.

    I am sorry, I don’t really know how it works, but does this mean that these eyeshadows are already sold out? Already in the middle of summer? So they won’t be in shops in the autumn at all? 🙂
    They look gorgeous and I really want to have some in my possession! 🙂

    Sandija, sorry for misunderstanding! Of course they are not sold out, but they were at that particular seller on ebay. Actually, i saw them today at Nordstrom 🙂 And of course, you can find them at Chanel counters.

    Красота да и только! Самый красивый макияж в сети, который я видела с этим оттенком! 🙂 Мне тоже нравится эта «краска для глаз». 🙂
