Chanel Illusion D'Ombre 85 Mirifique

Illusion D'ombre luminous eyeshadows were for a long time on my wishlist.
Long lasting and creaseless cream formula sounded like a perfect match for my oily eyelids.
So I picked up the most boring - yet most versatile shade out of the bunch.
85 Mirifique is a straight up black with multicolored silver glitters.

This eyeshadow is almost mousse-cream shadow and kind of bounces with finger pressed to it.
On the touch is really lightweight compared to other cream shadows.
It's perfect for smudging yet it settles quite quickly after application.
Comes with a folding brush which is surprisingly quite handy for smudging and intensifying.
Longevity is outstanding but it creases a tiny bit without setting it with a powder product.
Wearing Mirifique as a liner or smudged only close to the lash line- it will stay put without creasing.
Keep in mind I have extremely oily and hooded lids so basically anything will crease on me without a primer (except Becca Eye tints).

There's no fallout considering glitters since they stay exactly where you applied them.
The shade is perfect for defining the eyes like a liner or smudging it over the lashline.
You can easily build it up or sheer it to a light grey for a smokey eye.
I usually wear it all over the lid for a light daily smokey eye or use it instead of eyeliners/eyepencils.

There's no major creasing but if you want a really budge-proof cream eyeshadow I suggest you Becca Eye tints or Benefit Creaseless cream shadows.
However the texture of Illusion D'Ombre is quite unique - bouncy, mousse like.
Illusion D'Ombre retail for about 36$ in US and 28€ in EU.

PROS: pigmented, longlasting, no fallout, mousse texture, unique shades
CONS: smudges tiny bit without powder, price
