So in duty free I made two little naught purchases: Le Volume de Chanel Mascara and Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadow in Ebloui. And I am completely in love.

Let's start with the Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadow in Ebloui. The colour is a burgundy which pulls a beautiful brown-cranberry colour with glitter, however the glitter fades with blending. It doesn't crease on the eye and is incredibly long-wearing (without a primer!) The eyeshadow has a strange texture, it isn't cream and feels almost spongey. It blends very easily and is a very easy one colour smokey eye as it has dimension to it.

The Volume de Chanel Mascara is amazing. I received a sample of this and after wearing it on holiday I knew I had to purchase it! It is a very wet mascara which I find to be great for volume. The wand is a thick plastic wand which gets right into the root of the lash and coats them all. It is incredibly voluminous however not lengthening. I love this for a very easy, thick lashes look. It gives that subtle thick, clumpy look which is very rocker-chic and superb with a smokey eye!

Have you tried any Chanel eye products?

    1. It really is a beauty. I don't think Mac has a dupe for this unfortunately. If you want a bit of a splurge though I do recommend! xx
