After experiencing the magic that is Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Mirifique, I had to get my greedy little hands on more. I wanted to get all the Illusion D’Ombres but my sensible side talked me into getting just two (I was so close to picking up Epatant but decided it was too close a dupe of my Lancome Erika F eye shadow to justify the purchase).
My bestie was in San Fran a few weeks ago so he was kind enough to pick these up for me (thanks Ken!)
Price: 48AUD AUS rrp , 36 USD US rrp.
Availability: Chanel counters worldwide.

Illusoire is a sparkling silvery purple taupe, and Ebloui is a rust brown with multicoloured sparkle.
I’ve described this already for Mirifique and these two have the exact same product feel.
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. [rehash from my Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Mirifique review]
Illusoire has excellent lasting power on my lids, possibly slightly better than Mirifique and Ebloui. All 3 Illusion D’Ombres have better lasting power and crease resistance than my other cream shadows (including MAC Paint Pots).
I’m so in love with these shadows, particularly Illusoire and Mirifique. They do cost a small fortune, but they are worth every cent in my humble opinion.
