This was my 2nd Illusion d'ombre purchase (Illusoire was my first). This is a bit trickier for me to wear - the reddish brown can make my eyes look tired or irritated if I'm not careful to build up the colour. But this is a beautiful shadow if I apply it correctly or if I use it as a base under other browns/neutrals.
Yes, this is pricey and yes, it takes a bit of work to get the colour to build up and yes, the brush it comes with is pretty useless (fingers work better) but this is SUCH a beautiful eye shadow. The glitter in it is fine and "refined" looking. The purple/taupe/grey shade is just my sort of thing. And I find this shade wears really well. GORGEOUS and actually worth the price.
