The Tale of Chanel's Illusion D'ombre in 86 Ebloui


I've wanted one of these Chanel shadows for a long time. Well, since they came out, is that considered long??

They had two beautiful shades Emerveille and Illusoire, but passed because I had Jill Stuart dupes. Then I heard of Ebloui from MissHannahG and Chanelette

I finally made up my mind. I was going to finally buy one of these babies and decided Ebloui was the goal!


After the end of a long dinner this weekend (3 hours...crazy) I went to Macy's to swatched Ebloui and thought "This is beautiful!!! It has green reflects! I love it!" and went to the register. Fast forward home 20 minutes later to a very excited me, opening my shadow to hear a noise...hmmm?? Then I looked at the cap which I could not get off because it was on crooked!! Oh no!! I opened my shadow to see it completely dried up and 100 percent separated from the jar! If I flipped it over it would have fallen out.
Close the lid to these babies tight ladies!

Stared at the clock and saw the department store closed in 9 minutes...THANK GOODNESS I GO TO THE GYM! Slapped on some random shoes and ran in the snow, yes, of course it had to be in the cold snow!! I did not want to wait until the next day in case the staff thought I may have damaged the item myself. Made it with 3 minutes to spare and an exchange.



WHEW, some intro right!!!

Sh peel over, I finally got my shadow, I am in love, and couldn't be happier.

The shadow comes with a brush which I have not tried...and really should have before this post...

I have not been posting recently and did unfortunately take these photos at night but wanted to share my newest love purchase!! Will be reviewing in much fuller depth in the future!


Until then, eye candy!



Can you see the gorgeous green fine reflects?


Randomly, other favorites this week have been: MAC Teddy Eyeliner, MAC MSF in Stereo Rose over any pink cream blush, MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle, Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel (review coming soon), Maquillage eye lash curlers, NARS Dolce Vita lipstick with MAC Plushglass in Ample Pink

Hope everyone had a greeaaat weekend!!!

And for those who celebrate, Happy Lunar New Year!!

  7. The little green flecks do sound special! It's kind of scary to hear how fast things dry out, but good to know.

  10. Haha, you're so lucky for having a department store so close to your place! I always end up buying cosmetics when I'm stressed/bored/tired from Uni studying... This 3-hour dinner really must have cried out for a shopping spree afterwards! Enjoy your new Chanel acquisition, hun! Can't wait for your review on the Soleil Tan de Chanel! xx

  12. Why haven't I bought that shade yet? I've wanted it since it came out, too! I love that you ran in the snow to exchange it. lol! Stereo Rose over a pink cream blush? I need to try that!

  13. OMG That's sooooo GORGEOUS! Urghhh now I want to get one (even though I really don't need another eyeshadow)!

  14. This is gorgeous! I haveEmerveille and Epatant and Illusoire (so far!) and I’m warning you that when you get one you need to buy all of them! It’s a pity your first one was dried up but well done you for sprinting to Macys before it closed!

  16. Oh man, I loved how you had a back story to your purchase XD The color looks so pretty! I have a few of these on my wishlist but I don't know if I'll ever take the dive because of the price :( Your swatch is really convincing though!

    I tagged you for the Cute Blog Award tag here: http://angelicbb.blogspot.com/2012/01/cute-blog-award.html. If you have time, it'd be great if you could do it too! :D
