Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow in Emerveille

It takes a lot for me to splurge on a small, single makeup item but the Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long Wearing Luminous Eyeshadows in particular had a nice enough reputation to warrant my purchase. After hearing lots of wonderful things about the shade Emerveille - a versatile peachy champagne - I decided to bite the bullet and get it. The guilt only lasted about a minute anyway because it's so damn pretty! It really is worth the hype and this product formula alone has made it my favorite everyday eyeshadow.

I gravitate towards natural colors that enhance my eyes in the most subtle way possible. Emerveille fit the bill completely. I think it's quite a special color. It leaves just a hint of shimmer that doesn't lean frosty which I kind of hate. Frost makes me look crazy! I don't even use a brush when applying it because it's completely foolproof. Got a clean finger? That will do just fine. When you place your finger on it, it has a cute little bounce to it, which I like. With a good eyeshadow primer (I love NARS), it further prevents it from fading or getting cakey over the course of the day.

If you've tried and loved any other shades from the Illusion d'Ombre line, please do share your favorites!


  1. So so pretty. I still haven't splurged on any Chanel makeup but now I want this.

    1. I wouldn't say it's a necessity but a nice, high quality basic. It's nice to have a few of these in your makeup collection :)
