Chanel Iridescent (112) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is aptly named, as it is a pale white with an iridescent sheen that flashes pink, lavender, and blue paired with a soft, frosted finish. bareMinerals Skinny Dip (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ripe Plum (Left) (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Sugar Rush (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Le Marais (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Triple Impact (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Cassiopeia (P, $29.00) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Crushed Indigo (Left) (LE) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Mood Ring (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar).

The Illusion d’Ombre formula is supposed to be an “intensely shimmering long-wear eyeshadow.” If you’re unfamiliar with the formula, it is lightly spongy and slightly emollient, but it doesn’t feel like the traditional cream eyeshadow and is much thinner and more powder-like in how it applies and wears. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable on the skin and had semi-opaque coverage in one layer. It was buildable to opaque coverage after two layers or sheered out for more of a wash of shimmer, if desired, without issue. It lasted for nine and a half hours on me before creasing slightly.
