Chanel Fall Collection 2011 – Illusion D’Ombre

Hello All!!!

Today I’m so excited to post a new thing about make up! This is Chanel fall collection 2011! I have such a big crush on Chanel’s make up. They are very pretty, elegant and very rich in their color.

This season, Chanel is releasing a LOT ย of collection. One of my favorite is Chanel Illusion D’Ombre. This is their creme shadows. Many of the fall 2011 collections will be added permanently to Chanel’s make up collection. Woohoo I’m soo excited!! ๐Ÿ™‚

After comparing with many other brands, I’d say that Chanel’s creme shadow is on my top list. I’m going to swatch some of the colors as well.

Here’e the first one:

1. Epatant

Epatant is a khaki green color. Well, some people might see it as grey or green. But anyway, this color is so gorgeous! This color is suitable for day or evening time. The texture of Chanel’s creme shadows are very creamy. They are very rich in color. However, if you want to have an intense color, don’t forget to tap in harder so that it can give you a more intense color.


Here I’m going to swatch the color so that you can see the difference between the light and the heavy version of color:


2.ย Emerveillรฉ

Emerveille is a rick creme color. This color is perfect for most make up base. The color is very neutral that you can almost match it with any color. The color is not too intense. For me, this is not meant to color you whole eyelid. It’s more to the inner corner of your eyelid or to highlight your brow bone.



Here I’m going to swatch the color for you:


3. Eblouie

Eblouie is a very unique color. Some blogger say that it’s a warm brown color, while some said that it’s a purple color. For me, it’s more to a reddish brick color. This color is rarely found in any other brand. Eblouie is definitely one of my favorite color of this collection ๐Ÿ™‚


As you can see in picture below, Eblouie is a red brick color. Be careful when using this color as this color might make your eyes looks dull if you apply it in a wrong intensity. However if you can blend it well, this color goes well with most skin tone.

4. Fantasme

This is a very white fairy color. I love the name “fantasme” as every time I hear that word, I feel relaxed :p . This color is a very nice color for highlighting your brow bone. However in my opinion, this is not a “must have” item from this collection. Yes, this is pretty, it’s very shimmery, however this color is not intense enough.

Here’s the swatch of the color. As you can see, the color is not intense. But you can stil use this for highlighting your brow bone or to line your inner lower lash line.

5.ย illusoire

Illusoire is a deep purple color. This color is suitable for a smokey eye look. Personally this is not one of my favorite color from this collection. I don’t think this color is very special compared to the others. However, Chanel gives a very nice glitter/shimmer to the color.

Here’s the swatch of this color:

as you can see, when it is dabbed heavier the color is very intense, but when you dabbed lightly, the color is still there but it’s less intense.


6. Mirifique

Lastly, mirifique is one of many people’s favorite. This is a very intense black color with shimmery. This color is very suitable for smokey eye look. Other than that, mirifique can also be used as an eyeliner. This is a recommended color from this fall collection!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the swatch!

The left shade looks super pretty! It’s a very intense black color with some shimmer, and if you don’t really like a smokey eye look, you can still use this as an eyeliner.

So those are all the colors from Chanel Fall collection – Illusion d’Ombre ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for the swatches.

    Mirifique is the only shade that really stands out. The other remind me too much of Chanel Ombres Perlees palette from spring 2011 collection.
    I’m only wondering: do they crease on the lid?

      Hi Fleurissante,
      yes, the illusiore looks very similar to the purple color from the Ombres Perlees. The difference is just in the texture. This one is very glittery and rick in color.

      My experience with Chanel Illusion d’Ombre is that they last for hours. The color stays and doesn’t fade at all. I love using most of the color but mirifique is on top of the list ๐Ÿ™‚
      hope it helps ๐Ÿ™‚

    Did you buy them all?!! i only got the Mirifique, for a glittery eyeliner effect. love it ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Memoiselle says:

      Hi Valerie,
      yea I bought them all ๐Ÿ˜‰ coz i feel that these shadows are very versatile and can be worn mostly everyday.

      i agree with you on the mirifique, it’s a wonderful color and it’s very easy to blend with other colors. I also use it as an eyeliner ๐Ÿ™‚
