Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Mirifique: review, swatches, FOTD

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Mirifique

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Mirifique

 

Seen first on the models on the Chanel Fall Couture 2011 runways, the Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Mirifique has made quite an impression on the beauty world.

Oh Mirifique, how I misjudged you at my first swatch at Myers! For some reason (possibly dried out tester?), when I swatched Mirifique months ago for the first time, the product seemed super sheer and a little crumbly so I gave up on the Illusion D’Ombres.

I’m so glad that I gave Mirifique another shot, because this baby has become one of my favourite eye products of 2011.

Colour:

Fine silver/blue sparkles on a black base with a distinct ‘starry night sky’ look. Mirifique has a very pigmented base, and a high density of shimmer, so you get incredible intensity with one swipe (like in the left swatch below). It’s also quite easy to sheer out (like in the right swatch below).

Texture:

The Illusion D’Ombres are completely different to any other eye product I own. It is like a cross between a cream shadow, a loose pigment, and a mousse. Because it’s so soft it doesn’t need your finger to warm it up (unlike MAC Paint Pots, Illamasqua Cream Pigments or Benefit Crease less Cream Shadows), and applies like a dream with either finger, or brush. No crumbliness whatsoever.

Performance:

I was really quite surprised at the lasting power of this product. It goes almost all day with only minimal fading and budging on my oil slick lids (this is quite a feat) on top of a primer. There is some minor creasing at the 4hr mark, but this is to be expected on me. (Damn my lids. Damn them).

I’ve been asked how the Illusion D’Ombre compares with my MAC Paint Pots (reviewed here and here), and the surprising answer is that Mirifique is longer lasting on my eyes than any of my Paint Pots (without setting with powder shadow on top).

Final thoughts:

Even though these Chanel Illusion D’Ombres are double the price of MAC Paint Pots, I think they are worth it and more. I have Ebloui and Illusoire next on my ‘to buy’ list.

 One of the problems with cream shadows in pot form is that they will dry out and harden with time and exposure to air. It would be really interesting to see whether the Illusion D’Ombres will fare better at the 6 and 12 month mark.
