15.07.2013- What's In My Makeup Bag: Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Convoitise

Whilst my day to day makeup routine is more or less the same (and more fuss free than usual in this hot weather!), there are a handful of favourites which I find myself reaching for when I find myself wanting a little bit of a break from the norm. Step forward Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadows. I bought my first one (Epatant) last Christmas, and haven't looked back since, steadily adding to my collection with Emervillé, Fantasme and Abstraction. So, you can only imagine how excited I was when I saw that Chanel's High Summer beauty drop (which I posted about over at Aesthetic Online) included a couple of new shadows, namely Apparition (a beautiful blue which I may have also bought recently!) and this gorgeous gilded hue- Convoitise. 

If you're not familiar with the Illusion D'Ombre shadows then I'd definitely suggest popping along to your local Chanel counter to have a look at them- the powder-cream texture is really long lasting, and so easy to apply. I was instantly drawn to Convoitise as the pale gold shade is perfect for creating a subtle summer look, especially when built with my favourites from the the 'And God Created The Woman' palette by NARS. I find it easiest to apply with fingertips, but the brush which comes with the product is ideal for fixing any mistakes or creating a solid line of accent colour. It glides on beautifully, leaving a subtle shimmer after one application, or building to create a standout evening look which still feels really natural. If you're something of an Illusion addict (much like I am!), then it looks amazing when blended in with Emervillé, and the colour comes into vivid contrast when teamed with sister shade Apparition. Definitely a makeup bag must-have for this season and many more to come! 

Have you tried Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre eyeshadows?
