Chanel Pro Lumiere and d'ombre eyeshadow Mirifique!


Today was my first day back at university (yaaaay!) but the only downfall is that my uni is based in the middle of the town centre = tempted to shop :(
As I'm nearly out of my foundation I thought I would pop to the Chanel counter before I run out. I have been after the Chanel Illusion d'ombre eyeshadow in the colour illusionaire for ages but my chanel counter always run out! so today I decided to pick up the colour Mirifique to try it out.
I love the pro lumiere  foundation, it has more coverage than the vital lumiere but still has a natural look to it, I find it to be a bit too dewy looking so I have to use powder over it, I use macs translucent powder as it doesn't look cakey on the skin. The foundation is really light on the skin and easy to apply, I rarely use a foundation brush with this foundation as it is really easy to apply by hand. I am the colour 40 beige. It seems to last ages as you only need a small amount for coverage, it is buildable for colour if needed.

Anyway, onto the illusion d'ombre eyeshadow! it is amazingly pigmented, it feels like a cross between a mousse and a gel as it has quite a thick consistancy, it is very shimmery when the light hits it and can be used as an eyeshadow or an eyeliner with the brush included. I cannot wait to try it out, I think it will look lovely as a smokey eye with the colour illusionaire when I finally get my mits on it!
