Obsessing Over Chanel Epatant Illusion d' Ombre

We haven’t talked too much Chanel lately, but we’ve sure been wearing our share. I’m having a major fall obsession with Chanel Illusion d’ Ombre in Epatant. I have worn this everywhere lately. To work, on date night and even to the Justin Bieber concert. You better beliebe it. Epatant is a complicated color but beyond simple to perfect on the eyes. Is it green? gold? silver? grey? Yes, yes, yes and yes. On my eyes it’s a blend of all of those shades with the most sophisticated touch of sparkle. The texture is bouncy and powdery and it wears iron clad on the lids all day (with a primer but odds are even good without).

Chanel Epatant swatched lightly and heavily

While fingertips will work just fine, I prefer to use a fluffy brush to sweep Epatant on my lids. Just a light amount is glowy and dainty and it can be built up more intensely, which I love. Total day to night options at your disposal. While we’re on the subject of amazing complex green eyeshadowss I need to give an honorable mention to NARS Vent Glace, which I think started my fall craving for this shade. Vent Glace and Epatant look stellar together for a more intense green look.

  1. It’s funny that you talk about your love affair with this color. For me, it was dashing at first site. In the department store where I first saw it, the lighting made it appear this beautiful rusty gold almost. I purchase, ripped open the package at home, and discovered it was even more complex than that!

    My only dismay is the staying power. I find that it does crease on me regardless of primer or not. I’ve rarely had shadows crease on me, as I do not have oily lids, but with this gorgeous color I don’t even stop to worry.

    This color I will wear, crease or no. Love. True Love.
