Chanel Fleur de Pierre (106) Illusion d’Ombre Cream Eyeshadow
Chanel Fleur de Pierre (106) Illusion d’Ombre Velvet Cream Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark gray with cool undertones and fine blue and silver pearl. Chanel’s not the first brand to take liberty with the world “matte” (“the best-loved, gel-cream shadow goes matte”), but this is certainly not matte–there is quite a bit of shimmer in this shade. The texture was noticeably drier with a very thin consistency that made blending more difficult, as the color appeared patchy and uneven. It’s better used at its semi-opaque intensity and then built-up to mostly opaque coverage. It wore for eight hours before creasing slightly. NARS Bad Behaviour (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery. MAC Deep Cravings (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. Giorgio Armani #21 (LE, $33.00) is more shimmery. Urban Decay Ace (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker. Makeup Geek Prince Charming (P, $6.99) is lighter. Makeup Geek Galaxy (P, $5.99) is warmer. Tarina Tarantino Silver Shoes (LE, ) is more shimmery. Make Up For Ever ME108 Steel (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Kat Von D Santeria (LE, ) is more shimmery. Milani Bella Gray (10) (P, $4.49) is lighter. Hourglass Graphite #4 (P, ) is darker. Urban Decay Dagger (P, $18.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Slanted (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter.

Chanel Rouge-Gorge (116) Illusion d’Ombre Cream Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brightened pop of tangerine orange with warm, yellow undertones and a fine, light gold pearl. It had semi-sheer color payoff that was slightly buildable, but I couldn’t achieve full coverage with this product. I think it would work better as a base product or really blended out for a warm wash of color. The texture was mousse-like with light spring but has a thin, blendable feel on the skin that makes it feel more like a powder once applied. The lasting power came in at eight and a half hours before creasing. Inglot #123R Top (P, $6.00) is less shimmery. MAC Body Conscious (LE, $16.00) is darker. Dior Pareo (P, $29.00) is brighter. Make Up For Ever I724 Rust (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, brighter, warmer. Make Up For Ever I722 Mandarin (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Colour Pop Play (P, $5.00) is lighter. Chanel Tisse Fantaisie #1 (LE, ) is darker, more muted, cooler. Anastasia China Rose (P, $12.00) is more shimmery. Anastasia Fresh Peach (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter. LORAC Apricot (LE, ) is more shimmery. Too Faced Macaron (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, cooler. Milani Bella Mandarin (27) (P, $4.49) is less shimmery.
