The Illusion d’Ombre in Riviere was the only other piece I was interested in, in the Fleur de Lotus collection (you’ve already seen swatches of the blush and eyeshadow quad).
It’s nearly impossible to capture the aqua shimmer on camera. the way it looks in the pot in this picture is pretty much dead on. But it also translates true to my warm skintone… and that’s an unexpected surprise. I expected the aqua color to be lost on me, but it’s not.
I’m happy to report that this Illusion d’Ombre came quite intact. I really think that the Blue Illusion Pots were a rush job and that Chanel didn’t put as much emphasis on ‘quality’ control.
