Chanel Vision Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow
Chanel Vision Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “gold.” It’s a bright, yellow gold with a glittery, metallic finish. L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine is softer. L’Oreal Gold Imperial is similar but not as dark or as yellow. Giorgio Armani #1 is similar but more orange, less metallic. OCC Triptych is yellower. Inglot #404 is a bit darker but comparable in color.
The texture of this felt smooth when really sheered out, but if you make an attempt to layer or go for opaque color, it does not apply smoothly no matter how much I tried to coax it. The best way to wear it is really as a wash, just a sheer bit of color, because it minimizes its tendency to ball up into chunks on the lid. I recommend applying prior to foundation, too, as quite a few sparkles will get elsewhere. I had some minor fall out during wear, but by and large, it stayed put. After wearing this for eight hours, again, there was some fall out, but it hadn’t creased. It isn’t yet out, but it is part of the soon-to-be-released Les Expressions de Chanel collection.
