blendability

blends well

it's buildable and blends nicely, and i tried it as eye liner, without primer, with urban decay lid primer in nude matte, and layered with urban decay matte black shadow on the same lid primer for depth

- Macy's User

super easy and fast to apply, i use a fingertip; easy to blend with other eyeshadow, including powder eyeshadow; holds its beautiful color and shimmer; very forgiving and easy to correct if you make an application boo boo

- Nordstrom User

creasing

not creasing

they last on me for about 8 hours and do not crease at all

- Nordstrom User

place illusoire in the crease, use black liquid liner on the upper lid (i like the precision brush pens made my jessie's girl waterproof and amazing, lorac pro or physician's formula which has a lash serum), use illusoire to line your lower lash line, and apply mascara for a stunningly beautiful look

- Nordstrom User

staying power

longlasting

love how smooth this eye shadow goes on and how it stays on all day, and with minor touch ups lasts into the evening

- Saksfifthavenue User

a liner to try with these that works well is the new nars larger than life long wear eyeliner pencil in via veneto (black) sparingly right along your lashline to add a little extra definition

- Nordstrom User

consistency

creamy

it's a creamy/ mousse texture shadow that glides on effortlessly onto your lids with this gorgeous luminosity

- Nordstrom User

i love the soft velvety texture

- Nordstrom User

fallout

has fallout

but i have to agree with the other three reviews about the product fallout and too much glitter

- Nordstrom User

but that was wrong, i had clumps of it all over my eyes and when i went to smudge it back out, it would fall off in clumps

- Nordstrom User

pigmentation

sheer

this product is lovely and sheer

- Nordstrom User

mirage is a sheerer and easily blendable version of maybellines bad to the bronze

I Need Them ALL!

Everybody loves this D'ombre eyeshadow, they are just one of a kind. I think I actually like this better then the Giorgio Armani Eye To Kill.This shade [83 Illusoire] is a deep purple, and it looks very pretty either on the eyelid or crease. I think this could be my second favorite after New Moon.Compared to 85-Mirifique and 81-Fantasme, 83-Illusoire it just a very unique and rich multi-dimensional shade. I love it.This product has no fall out, long lasting, easy to blend and dummy proof. Has no scent. Very fine micro shimmer in this and gives the mult- dimensional effect. I highly recommend this product and this shade. Number 83!!!

Horrible !

I was looking for a long wearing eyeshadow that I can wear all day, so I decided to try this product out after I had read the reviews. I love MAC paint pots and only wished they came in more colors, so I decided to try this because the sales associate assured me that this product would last all day and would not crease. I bought it! Well, that was a big mistake, one of the worst shadows I've have ever used.Reason 1. This product is hard to put on, it is not the easiest product to use. Your given a little brush so I used that to apply the product. It just clumped up on the brush and rolled off my eye and onto my cheek. So I decided to use my finger, I ended up with more product on my finger then my eye. Also, it's really hard to get an even application and due to this it's hard to get the edges to not be harsh.Reason 2. It does not last at all. The color was very pretty for about an hour and after that, I couldn't figure out where is went. By 3 hours it looked very light and by 5 hours, I was left with just my eyeliner.Reason 3. It creased like crazy. I asked the sales lady if it would crease and she assured me it wouldn't. But that was wrong, I had clumps of it all over my eyes and when I went to smudge it back out, it would fall off in clumps.The only positive about this product, is it does come in pretty colors, other than that I wouldn't waste your money. « less

Easy to blend

Among all the brands who offer creamy eyeshadows, Chanel is definitely one of the best. The gel texture feels very smooth, soft and cushiony. It's easy to apply, easy to blend, set into powder, no creasy, long wear. I love the sparkly pink from the 2014 Spring collection, while the eggplant color is also quite interesting.

I ended up buying all of them!

I started off buying two of these to try them out, and I ended up rushing to Nordstroms to get the remaining 4. I really love all of these colors. Even though they are supposed to be part of the fall collection, I think that most of these shades can easily be worked into a summer look. I will probably hold off on using a lot of the black though until the fall/winter.My favorite colors are ebouli, epatant, and illusoire. I would start with one or all of these three colors, depending on what looks you gravitate to. Emerville is nice as an overall lid color, and though the color is not necessarily unique the amazing application & color payoff make it worth the money. Fatasme is the hardest to apply without getting fallout. It is also the most glittery, so this color needs to be applied with a gentle hand to add some highlight.Overall I would put these in the same category as Armani's ETK Intense, which I also love. They are however a completely different type of formula and so not the same as ETK.They are very easy to blend, stay put when applied, and definately smudgable. They will dry down somewhat, but you will have time to smudge them out before they do. (They are not like the cream shadows from MUFE.) « less

Very nice

I hand tested this at the Macy's store before I purchased it, to gauge the texture and color. This was a first time (for eye shadow) purchase that was inspired by the Vamp collection model on the website, I just loved the burgundy color. It's buildable and blends nicely, and I tried it as eye liner, without primer, with urban decay lid primer in nude matte, and layered with urban decay matte black shadow on the same lid primer for depth. It's so versatile, you can use it for a fairly sheer wash of color to a super dark smoky eye. This without primer melts and creases really fast for me, but it's easy to touch up with a fingertip. It lasts awhile longer with primer and shadow as base. I think the creasing problem is just me, though, so I usually stay away from shadows that aren't powder . This color certainly makes blue eyes pop. « less

Kinda depends what you’re looking for really because honestly you can find dupes! I will say I enjoy their face powder, highlighters and the le volume mascara! They have a cream shadow that is to die for it’s called New Moon! I have gotten so many people hooked on it! I’d say if you got the money, treat yourself!
