Chanel Diapason (92) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow
Chanel Diapason (92) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “luminous deep purple.” It’s a dark, warm purple over a burgundy-brown base with a frosted, shimmering finish. It had fairly good color payoff, which could be sheered out for a warmer, browner color. The finish was fairly metallic and quite sparkling. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and blendable. I wore this on the outer half of my lid, and it lasted well for eight hours and had faint creasing and fading apparent after nine hours of wear. Makeup Geek Sensuous (P, $5.99) is a powder, less purple. Urban Decay Remix (LE, $18.00) is also powder but similar in color. Disney by Sephora Master (LE) is darker, powder. MAC Circa Plum (LE, $21.00) is lighter, powder. MAC Rare Find (LE, $21.00) is darker, powder. See comparison swatches.
Impulsion (93) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “luminous pastel pink.” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium pink with a frosted, sparkling finish. This really glimmered and danced in the light–very pretty. It had good color payoff, and it could be sheered out for more of a wash of sparkle if desired. The texture felt very soft, slightly spongy, but smooth and lightweight. It wore well for eight hours before showing slight creasing and fading after nine hours of wear. There was very slight fall out apparent after seven hours of wear. I worried this was going to look “crepe-y” applied, but it smoothed out nicely. Tom Ford Beauty Seductive Rose #2 (P) is a touch lighter. Urban Decay Dust (P, $18.00) is warmer. Too Faced Marshmallow (LE) is a powder. MAC Rock Candy (P, $21.00) is pinker, powder. MAC Pinkluxe #2 (P) is a powder. theBalm Safe Bet Annette (P, $16.00) is also a powder. MAC Cheryl Chic (LE, $15.00) is a powder, less metallic. MAC Love Power (LE, $18.50) is less sparkly. Chanel Harmonie du Soir #4 (LE) is lighter, powder. Make Up For Ever #303 (P, $20.00) is less warm-toned, powder. See comparison swatches.
