Slim pickings from this years Chanel Summer collection Reflets d'Été, I only purchased two of the Illusion d’Ombres.
I wasn't too sure about the colour story when I first read about it and
seeing the products in person I still wasn't sure as the collection seems
to lack cohesion.
Of the three shadows on offer I bought the two limited editions.
Utopia is a shimmery/metallic dusty lavender.
It goes on very smooth and
blends well with a good wear time.
Shown below, Utopia swatched once then three times.
New Moon is a brown/copper with red undertones. Its jam packed full of
glitter (I do get a bit of fall out).
Though the base has the same good
performance of Illusion d’Ombres, the glitter particles can make it look
a bit messy as they disperse a bit, so I find this works best applied
over other shadows rather than on its own.
New Moon swatched once then three times.
Below is Utopia with a touch of New Moon on the centre, they don't
really work together but I wanted to try them combined.
I'm not really infused; I am a fan of the Illusion d’Ombres but
something about Utopia isn't hitting the mark and though New Moon it just so pretty to look at in the
pot, once applied it makes me look tired.
Sadly the fall collection (which is usually my favourite release from
Chanel) isn't looking up either from the lackluster reviews I've read so
far, so lets hope it looks better in person.
I bought these from Boots.
