Chanel Illusion D'Ombre #827 Initiation & #837 Fatal from Nuit Infinie de Chanel Holiday 2013 Collection

This year Santa brings us two brand new Illusion d'Ombres from Chanel, #827 Initiation and #837 Fatal. The eye shadows in this line are known with their pretty to touch bouncy consistency, complex  shimmer and buildable pretty colors. 

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre #827 Initiation & #837 Fatal

Illusion d'Ombre #837 Fatal has my name written all over it. If they would ask me what color to design, surely my answer would be "a reddish plum!". Fatal is not your ordinary reddish plum though, it is one with fine silver shimmer which makes it so unique and pretty.

#857 Initiation is what makes your holiday wishes come true, it is golden and very sparkly. Certainly not for matte lovers but it adds an interesting dimension to any of your mattes if you ever get bored or would like to go for a statement eye. The base shade is more natural than any other gold Illusion d'Ombres since it leans beige/brown.

Below you can see comparison swatches:

#837 Fatal
Chanel Illusion d'Ombre #83 Illusoire and Diorshow Fusion Mono #881 in Hypnotique (reviewed previously here) are both more grey/taupe purples. Chanel Illusion d'Ombre #86 Ebloui leans more brown.

#827 Initiation
Last year' holiday Illusion d'Ombre in #817 Apparence is more yellow/gold. Closest shade I could find to Initiation is Diorshow Fusion Mono #661 Meteore (previously reviewed here) which leans a tad more brown and is darker, denser.

Below I applied Fatal all over the lid and used Initiation very lightly on the inner corner. I found it to be very sparkly, so tried to tone it down by applying a little more Fatal on top so mostly what you see in this picture is Fatal.

I love the effortless natural look Fatal gives me. Nowadays I enjoy combining it with YSL Rebel Nudes Glossy Stain #101 in Nude Provocateur which has similar reflective property. Here is rest of the face.

Final thoughts: Fatal is nothing but love. If those weren't be water based, I would seriously consider a back up. Initiation is a nice natural color for those who like some sparkle on their lids.

Are you eyeing anything from Chanel Holiday Collection? I am still waiting for the eye palette with a big curiosity.

    1. Yes Fatal is really drop dead gorgeous :-)
      It has very fine shimmer, not like glittery, very subtle and pretty.

    1. Hi Jenny,
      Thanks, I am trying to have some waves, I haven't done that for a long time but now I enjoy it. Fatal must have been my all time favorite IdO, love it even more than Illusoire, which I never thought would be no 2 ;-)

  8. Now that I thought I had enough Chanel cream shadows you show this gorgeous colour, I mean Fatal:) How can one resist such a pretty shade? Thanks for sharing!

  9. On your pictures Fatal looks exatlcy like my perfect kind of taupe (like Chanel Fauve single eyeshadow) I wonder why illusoire and hypnotic (also in my fav taupe leage) appear so non-purply in comparison..

  10. Is Fatal similar to Armani eyes to kill #27?

  11. I'm so in love with Fatal. It's probably the prettiest Illusion D'Ombre yet...
