Chanel has released two more Illusion d’Ombre; a gold one called Vision and a pink called Abstraction. I have seen the swatch of both products for about 1-2 months and immediately fell in love. However these things has just hit Singapore last week. I grabbed these items while Isetan is having 10% discounts in the pas few days. These retail at S$52 in Singapore.
This is a shimmery peachy pink that’s sheer but also can be worn opaque. It’s a color that I like because it’s easily can be worn as a base or a highlighter. This pink looks good on my skin tone as it does not create a striking pink look on my eye. I like to use this eyeshadow combined with a taupe or a dark purple. Moreover this color can create both sweet look and glam look.
The swatch above is taken under indoor lighting. I applied a thick amount of illusion d’Ombre on the left side and a light amount on the right side. I tried this eyeshadow on my eye with Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Purpura #3. I am sorry that the falsies look a bit messy there.
In the picture below, I have looked some pink eyeshadow in my stash that looks pretty similar to Abstraction. I am quite surprised that Dior Sunset looks pretty similar to Abstraction. L’Oreal Forever Pink and ETK Sweet Fire are a little bit more toward pink and have less peachy undertones.
Vision is a gold sparkle that’s more to sheer. For me, I’d rather use this as a eye highlighter rather than a base. It would be too sparkly if I would have to wear it as a base. I think this eyeshadow is a bit too glittery for my liking. It’s quite hard to control the glitter that can be messy. In my opinion, the texture resembles Chanel Illusion d’ombre in Fantasme.
The swatch above is also taken under indoor lighting. You can see that even I have applied quite a thick amount of it, it still looks very sheer. In the picture below, I did a look with Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill in #1 Blast of Blue and I topped it with Vision. I applied a sheer amount of vision on top of Eyes to Kill. I don’t want to have a too sparkly eye look on that day.
I have looked my stash and found out that most of my eyeshadow lean towards beige or peach. I don’t have many gold hence I don’t do a comparison for vision.
As a big fan of Chanel Illusion d’Ombre, these range never disappoints me. The texture is really smooth and easy to blend. Moreover Chanel’s sparkles is one of the best among most brands. Abstraction attracts me better than vision. Abstraction can be worn as both base and highlighter. Vision is a little bit too sparkly for my liking but I have no regret in collecting this baby. As far as I know, this is a limited edition. If you’re a fan of Illusion d’Ombre, these items worth your every penny and you better go and grab them before they disappear forever :p
