Chanel Fall 2011 Illusion D'Ombres, 86, ÉBLOUI - Swatched!

Ébloui is the final Illusion D’Ombre eyeshadow in the fall 2011 collection from Chanel; it’s out today, by the way and, along with the rest of the Illusion D'Ombre shades, is a permanent addition to the Chanel range!

It’s a beautiful rusty brown hue and has the most delicate sparkles running through it that catch the light fantastically – see how the different colour sparkles come through on the photographs on my eye.

You’ll not be surprised to know, with it being a darker shade that this is one of the more pigmented shades in the collection and it’s actually really easy to work with too, probably due to the (rather good) formulation.

This shade lasted quite a while, but not quite as long as the black which was incredibly long lasting, even when a fair amount of the sparkle had all but gone, there was still the black hue in place which is good enough for me and didn’t look worn out either. I got a solid 8 hours of strong wear, with a slight deterioration afterwards; again it didn’t look bad at this point either.

What do you think of the colour? Is it something you’d pick?
 Left is lightly applied and right is heavily applied.


  1. Dammit, there are too many awesome colours in this range. This is awesome. The sparkle is insane!

  2. Beautiful! I wouldn't usually go for strong colours, but it looks very christmassy for my style XD

  3. That's a gorgeous colour; I was in two minds if to buy any of these shadows but now I would NEED to pick it up. ;)
