... part 1 here ^_^
Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in 96 Ebloui: everybody has been talking about this wee pots, in the last few months; I wasn't sure on which colour to buy but then I remembered that I have the Ombres Perlees De Chanel Palette and some of the colours look like dupes to these to me.
The only odd out was Ebloui plus it is in the purple/brown family which will complement perfectly my eye colour.
What can I say... I'm in love! It is a beautiful, flattering shade that brings out the green in my eyes and really makes them pop; it's a demure burgundy with multi-dimentional shimmer, gravitating around gold and cranberry.
The innovation is in the formula: kinda of a bouncy mousse but, after a bit of practice, very easy to use and doesn't crease on me!
It comes with a small brush - pretty cute and I've used it with gel liner - but I prefer to apply Ebloui with fingers.
Update: I love it so much that I used it on my wedding day - post here.

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in 78 Phoenix: I already got one of these - 76 Ming which is perfect nude pink for my skintone - and loved the formula so much that I decided I needed more!
This time, I went for the totally opposite: bold, dark pink/borderline red which gives full coverage with a single swipe. The texture is amazing, weightless and non-sticky.
Incredible quality and, although you don't get much product, it's so so worth it, in my opinion.... the packaging on his own is so luxurious!
