Chanel Fall 2011 Illusion D'Ombres, 83, ILLUSOIRE - Swatched (Badly, Sorry)!

Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in shade 83, ILLUSOIRE is a gorgeous purple-y colour, with just a hint of grey coming through when applied on the skin – part of me wants to liken it to Paradoxal in colour, but it’s not the same shade of purple. It is still very beautiful.
 Taken with TZ7 and showing a bit too red.
Taken with DSLR, showing up a bit too dark!

My camera hasn’t caught this very well I’m afraid (both swatches and in the pot), purples are notoriously hard to photograph accurately and this is no different as the camera hasn’t quite picked up enough of the purple in it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a striking purple as the grey does mute it down but it is a bit more apparent than the swatch photographs show.

Application is smooth, it blends beautifully too. Staying power is great, as with the other shades (here and here) I’ve swatched so far – not budging even when I accidentally forgot I was wearing this and rubbed my eye (I ALWAYS do this)!!

As with the rest of the collection, this is out on August 19th!

Over-exposed to show the metallic nature of the shadow.

  1. What an amazing-looking eyeshadow! I can't justify almost $50 for it here in Australia but I'd totally get me one of these if I found it online for less. Gimme!
