Chanel Web site. Turns out that's an Asian Web site. I got suspicious when I saw the eye shadow quad. This shade was an Asia exclusive, so once I realized I was on a site for Singapore, my confusion departed. Pfew!
The moment I saw Convoitise, I was taken with it. I love gold eye shadows. This one is sheer and subtle. It's love.
Illusion d'Ombre, enlivened with golden, bronze, and platinum reflections, offers iridescent
and luminous shades to style your eyes to
the extreme or simply caress them with a halo of pearly particles.
I didn't have a brush with me when I was swatching, so I used a sponge-tipped applicator, making sure I got enough product on my arm (I thought) to show the beautiful gold. I took my photos outside the store in blazing sunshine. I tried - I really tried - to get photos that didn't showcase the veins in my arm, but it was impossible. Sorry!
Convoitise is a beautiful eye shadow, one worthy of a look-see. The light, long-lasting, silky, and powdery cream texture makes application a pure delight. I hope to purchase it. When I do, I'll feature it again. I'll take photos in my home environment when I can control the timing and environment of the photography.
What would I like to have from Les Délices de Chanel? Délicatess, Friandise, and this beautiful eye shadow.
