Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Mirifique

Cooled lava emanating smoke upon being swallowed by the ocean - that, right there, is the look and feel of Chanel's Mirifique.  Smoky, luxurious and a tad dangerous with that mysterious gaze.

Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre range (eight colours in total) is versatile and fairly easy to use.  I prefer to use my fingers when applying this creamy eyeshadow, because the heat given off by my fingertip helps to diffuse and blend out its richness. With that said (admittedly), I have yet to find a brush which is able to grab ahold of and evenly apply this bouncy formula. Any suggestions?


The presence of micro glitter has always been a huge draw for me - the fact it sticks around no matter how it's applied is a huge bonus!  I also dig the charcoal black colour, but smoky eyes typically scare me (I think I look like a racoon).  However, I think I managed to avoid looking like one on this occasion.


Somehow I managed to put together a Chanel face.  Above, I'm also wearing Amour, on my lips and Blush Horizon de Chanel on my cheeks.
