Chanel has released its Reflets d’Ete de Chanel Summer 2014 collection worldwide. In this collection, there are three illusion d’ombres being released for the collections; they are mirage, utopia and new moon. I picked up Utopia and New Moon as they’re limited editions; Mirage is a beautiful shade too but I decided to wait.
Initially Utopia did not really catch my attention when I saw the promo picture. But once I visited Chanel counter and swatching it, there’s no turning back. It’s a sparkly lilac shade with medium intensity of color. It’s a sparkly shade which I will use as a base or an eyeshadow on its own. I don’t think I have any similar shade of illusion d’Ombres that looks like Utopia.
New Moon is a gorgeous sparkly bronze combined with purple. I seriously think that I don’t need more browns or bronze eyeshadow shade, but after looking at the beautiful sparkles, how could I ever resist such beautiful limited edition shade?
As some of you may know, Chanel Illusion d’Ombres range is one of my favorite product ranges all the time. I love how soft and bouncy the texture is. Not to mention the beautiful sparkles that Chanel never fails to bring. Utopia and New Moon have once again won my heart.
This is how Utopia and New Moon look on my eye. I like both shades – Utopia, with its shimmering lilac shade instantly brightens my eye look. New Moon on the other hand, creates more noticeable eye make up look because of the intensity of the shade itself.
Have you picked anything up from the collection?
Thank you for reading!
