My New Love | Chanel Illusion D'ombre

Chanel Illusion D'ombre in Emerveille

This has been on my wish list for such a long time but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldnt justify the price tag (£22.50). Sin from Urban Decay is my fave eyeshadow ever so after reading how similar Sin and Emerveille are I knew it was only a matter of time before I caved.

  


After realising I had around £11 worth of points on my Boots card I decided now would be a good time to purchase it as I would be only paying half price but when I went to pay the MUA told me points cant be used unless theres enough to cover the full price. I was raging but it was too late, I already had Emerveille in my hand and ten men wouldnt of been able to take it off me!




I love it, its gorgeous!


Swatched Lightly - Natural Light

I was also told Chanel are bringing out a new skincare range so she took my number and will ring as soon as stock hits the counters. I doubt I'll buy anything skincare wise but she mentioned new makeup/getting colour matched blah blah blah. I'll just be using it as an excuse to play around with expensive makeup.

    1. Me too but the shimmer isnt OTT. It just makes the eyes look wide awake and glowy.

    1. I know you can use points towards purchases, I always do it but seems you cant do the same at the Chanel counter. Not sure if the other counters are the same.
