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. ย I recommend applying prior to foundation, too, as quite a few sparkles will get elsewhere. ย I had some minor fall out during wear, but by and large, it stayed put. ย After wearing this for eight hours, again, there was some fall out, but it hadn’t creased.ย  It isn’t yet out, but it is part of the soon-to-be-released Les Expressions de Chanel collection.

i bought this a while ago and love it love the color and formula and it looks ever better on lips especially on red lips .work well with couple of other different shades as well.looks great on top of nude lipsticks as well . give it a try ๐Ÿ™‚

I bought this a long time ago in London at Selfridge and agree with Christine’s review completely! I tried using this then layering a powder shadow on top and it turned into such a mess I had to restart completely! I do think it’s quite nice however on it’s own!

It seems to fair a bit better over shadow but only a tiny little bit or I notice it will clump and look messy. I usually wear it on its own or I dab a little with my finger over shadow at the center of my eyelid!

Christine i think this problem would be solved with a little fyrinnae pixie epoxy definitely minimizes the fall out >.</ well i'm praying for that because i'll be hunting this down that's for sure!! i can't stop looking at all this shine *__* DEAR GOD IS GORGEOUS!!!

I have this and while I agree with everything in this review, I just have to say that I love this shadow. It is hard to layer and doesn’t have any real color but it’s just so pretty to me!!! It’s magical and fun……everything makeup should be, to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Just thought I’d leave my experience with this product.

A dear friend of mine sent this to me from London when it was first released and it looks gorgeous layered on top of shadows. I wear this whenever i want a pop of gold glitter on my lids or just a hint of sparkle in the inner corners of the eyes. I experienced no fall out nor does it crease or look a hot mess after hours of wear on me. I also agree that it looks gorgeous on top of a red lip =)
