I have been back and forth from Europe (hence the lack of blogging), in and out of airports (which is why I have so many products to write about)..and you know where us beauty fiends bee-line to in duty free....yes of course, the cosmetic counters.
Those of you who know me and who have been reading my blog from the beginning, will know I have been a loyal Chanel beauty madam since 17 (when I discovered Uma Thurman wore Rouge Noir in Pulp Fiction). My college girlfriends and I religously bought every Chanel star product, which I still have some of to this day.
While I was duty free shopping, I finally had some time to indulge in a bit of Chanel and picked up these stunning little pots of joy, the Illusion D'Ombre gel eyeshadows.
As you can see, I couldn't just have one, I would have loved to buy all of them but at £22 a pot, I settled for three. They look like air whipped delicious eyeshadow cakes, rich in pigment and so smooth to apply, a little goes a long way. I also noticed that the more you blend, the more the flecks of silver, purple and gold come out, truly stunning.
