So, I didn't go crazy and buy all the Chanel Illusion D'Ombres when they were first released last year. This is because these are all permanent products, and there isn't a rush to have to get them all at one shot. There were at least 3 shades which I was very keen on, and I started with a peachy neutral shade in Emmerville 82, and in the recent Metro 20% off sale, I got 84 Epatant with the help of my friend who is a cardmember.
The usual retail price is S$58. S$52 sorry, my mistake.
Epatant is a beautiful multi-color shimmery creams shadow, it had olive khaki tones, and is neutral (but not earth tones). I think it looks great on its own, or you if want to make it more intense, use it over a black base, or if you want it to look more green, apply with a green base underneath. The shimmery goodness of Epatant is amazing, and I highly recommend this shade.
I usually use products like this on its own, with a regular eyeshadow primer to prevent any creasing. Emerville is able to last me the whole day without any fading or creasing.
More photos and swatches:
I know the picture below is blurred and extremely close up, but you can see how shimmery Epatant looks, and the olive khaki tones.
Here is how Epatant looks like in comparisons to other pots which might look remotely similar.
I am not suggesting any of these are dupes, but you can see the different textures.
Which is your favourite Illusion D'Ombre? If I get more of these, they would be the Illusiore (purple) and/or Mirifique (black).
That's all, and hope this has been helpful. :)
