FOTN: Chanel Illusion d’Ombre (Mirifique)

I road tested the new Chanel cream shadow in Mirifique, and it performed surprisingly better than I’d expected. I found that if you do indeed lay them over a powder (or a base) to give them something to stick to, then they don’t crease as much. So I used the beige color from the Prelude quad as a base, and laid Mirifique over it. It did crease a bit in the ‘crease’ of my eyes, but not much more than that.

As you can see, the glitter does transfer by touch. There is no fallout, but you should be aware of the transfer in your product placement.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine: Rebelle, Canotier, Monte Carlo, Bonheur

Here are a few more swatches:

Rebelle looks like it’s very pigmented in the tube… but goes on a sheer reddish/pinkish/orange. Hard to describe the color. It’s bold, but sheer. Nice for when you just want a pop of color. Not as nice as Sari d’Eau in my opinion.

Canotier is a PERFECT, IDIOT-PROOF NUDE! I can put this on in the car, in the dark… wherever. It’s pretty hard to get wrong. I love it. So sheer, but with a hint of shimmer. Just enough to give your lips a pop. I am getting a backup. I’m not kidding.

Monte Carlo is an unexpected strawbery pink. Really lovely. Perfect alone or with the Chanel Framboise lip liner. I didn’t think I would like this… but I really do. Keeper.

Bonheur is just so pretty! Its a bright, sheer pink. Reminds me a lot of the Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick in Fuchsia… with a better smell. The rose smell is just divine, and really fitting for this color in particular. Love it!

Whew… that’s eight colors so far. I would love to try and swatch (on lips) all 20 (that I can count, including the Neimans and Saks exclusives). We’ll see.

Ciao for now!
