Chanel Fall 2011 Illusion D'Ombres, 85, MIRIFIQUE - Swatched!

Mirifique is another of the Chanel Illusion D’Ombre eyeshadows that will be released tomorrow!! This is an amazing, and very sparkly black gel shadow (same formula as the others I have swatched) that is massively pigmented – and that isn’t exaggerating at all.

The swatches on my hand show a very light swipe of the product on the left that hasn’t been blended at all, to show you how black and pigmented it really is. The swatch on the right is what was left on the brush and I have blended it out a bit, just to show you that you don’t have to wear it blacker than black if you don’t want to. I mentioned in previous posts that you can use these as eyeliners and I have to say, this one is perfect for the job!

Bottom right hand photo: this was done at an angle to show you how black the shadow is without the sparkle being as present.

The shadow lasts brilliantly on the eye, just like the others in the range and a little goes a long way because of how incredibly pigmented it is; so even though the product is a little bit pricey, it probably will end up being very good value for the amount of wear you could get out of it.
Very quickly swiped over my eye, excuse the shoddy application - it actually didn't look that bad in 'reality' though!

I think this is one of my favourites in the range, what do you think?

P.S: I am a little delayed with posting all of these up due to recent circumstances, but I will get the rest of the range up asap so excuse if I slightly rush through the reviews as I have given my thoughts a bit more in depth on the formula in the other posts, although if there’s anything that changes in the upcoming colours (ie not as pigmented, or don’t last as long etc), then that will be in there. x

  1. OMG!!!
    That is amazing, its like what they used at the Ready to Wear, it was really dark eyes and i think they might have used this! because the designs were really androgynous
