After reading so many positive review on Diapasson, I finally decided to purchase this item. Diapasson is added to the permanent collection and it is a deep purple with very fine shimmer. I am a big fan of Chanel Illusion d’Ombre; I love the bouncy and smooth texture. The eyeshadow is so easy to apply and to blend and the pigmentation is superb!
Diapasson is a deep purple with duochrome effect. In certain light, I see it as a deep purple and sometime I see a hint of brown in it. In this picture, I couldn’t really capture the shimmer but you may see the fine shimmers in the next picture below. I applied two layers on the swatch below. The swatches below is taken outdoor with indirect sunlight.
I did a comparison of Diapasson and some other two Illusion d’Ombres that I think might look similar. They are Illusoire and Ebloui. The swatches below is taken under indoor lighting. The shimmers are captured better here.
Initially I thought Illusoire would look quite similar to Diapasson but it turned out that Illusoire looks much deeper and it has a deep grey tone in it too. Ebloui carries a plummy tone but it also leans more to brown shade.
I also purchased the nail polish shade from this collection. Le Vernis Tapage looks like a very deep pink that leans towards red. I love Chanel red nail polish so I thought of adding this to my red nail polish collection. In the swatch below, I applied two coats of Tapage and I used Chanel Extreme Shine top coat.
Here’s a quick swatch of Tapage:
And there it goes my pick for Chanel Spring 2013! I have posted a short review of Chanel Quad in Quadrille and the Cream Blush in Intonation few days ago, you may read the post here.
So what is your pick from this collection?
