Chanel Collection Nuit Infinie De Chanel Collection Holiday 2013 – Illusion d’Ombre in Initiation



Hello everyone!

I am sure most of you have seen this collection in person. I just want to share what I have picked from this collection 🙂

So last week I went down to Orchard Road to take a look at Chanel Nuit Infinie De Chanel Collection. Initially my plan was only to pick up initiation but I ended up with the lipstick too. I swatched the Charming Eye Palette but I decided not to pick it up as the shades look nothing too special to me.


So in this post, I am going to talk about Illusion d’Ombres in Initiation.



If you have been following memoiselle for a while, you’ll know how much I love Illusion d’Ombre. I just love how bouncy the textures are and the shimmer is to die for. The shimmer makes my face looks glowy and it is not too sparkly at all. The only downside of Illusion d’Ombre is that it tends to get dried out after a year or so (if you use it often). I have not find any way to restore the texture of my dried Illusion d’Ombre. I still use my dried Illusion d’Ombre as a powder eyeshadow; the pigmentation is still there and I can still see the beautiful shimmer.

Inititation is a sparkly bronze – taupe. I think this shade would be suitable for both cool and warm skin tone. I like to apply this eyeshadow with my finger. I find that the colors blends better with my finger. There’s a small brush provided in the packaging but I don’t really use the brush to apply this eyeshadow.





I did a comparison in the swatch below: Apparence – Initiation, Vision, Illusiore. All these 4 shades are unique and in my opinion, each shade is beautiful and it is worth getting.





Final Thought:

Chanel Illusion d’Ombre has beautiful texture that is bouncy and soft. Initiation is a gorgeous shimmery taupe bronze. I would highly recommend this shade for anyone especially for those who love the texture of this eyeshadow.

    I still don’t own any of the Illusion d’ombres! I did look at the holiday colors of these though, and of the 2, this was the one I liked the most 🙂 Which would you start with if you had never tried these before??

  3. I really love the colour! I;m waiting for my new piece to come I hope it doesn’t separate like the first one. Did you check out Fatale? How is it different from Illusoire?
