Black Diamond: A Shimmery Smoky Eye Feat. Chanel Mirifique

Black Diamond: A Shimmery Smokey Eye Feat. Chanel Mirifique

 

I was on my way out to dinner a few weeks ago and I felt like indulging in a little bit of sparkle. I hadn’t used my Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Mirifique for a long time so I had a play with using Mirifique together with a little bit of MAC Reflects Glitter in Gold to heighten the sparkly effect.

I love my Reflects Gold and really don’t use this enough- it gives a beautiful sophisticated sparkle without chunky glitter, and adheres to the lid really well when used with a cream shadow like the Illusion D’Ombre. I’d love to try it on taupe shadow (it’s on the list of my 358 other things I need to try).

Smokey Terracotta: FOTD featuring Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Ebloui

Hi all!

I hope you’ve all been well and having a fantastic start to 2012 so far.

For me it’s the year of big changes and leaps into the unknown- I’ll be moving myself and Dizzy to Melbourne ( just because) after being very happy in regional NSW for over 3 yrs; possibly going to Peru for a month to volunteer alongside other eyecare professionals; letting go of old and destructive relationships and starting new ones; and of course in the blog-world getting use to life after Google Friend Connect. I should be excited but at the moment I feel a little like I’m standing at the edge of a precipice.

In other news, I wore Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Ebloui the other night.

Taupe and Purple: A FOTD featuring Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Illusoire

Taupe and Purple: A FOTD featuring Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Illusoire

Hi guys!

Sorry I’ve been missing in action lately. I had a very lazy holiday period, and when I was rested and ready to blog up a storm- My Funny Valentine came down with a mysterious case of trojan flu. Yes, again (FML).

For a few terrifying days I actually thought that I would have to either give up on the MFV for good, or move back to blogspot. Thankfully, Sarah from Dempeaux came to the rescue (well, technically her programmer boyfriend did) and we found 4 separate lines of malicious code lurking … maliciously?.. in my theme files.

I want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to all the lovely readers that tweeted and emailed me letting me know what the situation was on their end- what would I do without you guys?

[edit: less than 5hrs after publishing this post, Sarah from Dempeaux and her programmer boyfriend alerted me to the fact that there were suddenly hundreds of malicious lines of code on my blog seeded across a number of blog files- they were being churned out by some sort of Russian virus hiding in my TimThumb plugin files. Sarah's boyfriend was kind enough to nurse my poor little blog back to health last night- I can't thank them enough.]

So now that we’re back on track- here is a FOTD that I had been wearing quite a bit lately (I’m pretty sure I wore this on NYE) . It’s a plummy taupey soft smokey eye with a bit of Illusion D’Ombre shimmer.

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.
