Weekend Face: Chanel Illusion D’Ombre 86 Ebloui and Lime Crime Great Pink Planet Opaque Lipstick
I posted this on Facebook some time ago and was asked what products I used for this weekend look.
Was feeling a little luxe, but you can definitely substitute the products I used with others.
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre 86 Ebloui: Deep rich reddened brown with green, gold, pink sparks that look a lot prettier in real life than they show up on camera.
Very beautiful. Also very expensive. I got it with a gift voucher and I’m not suggesting that you do the same unless you badly want a one-step product that goes on very smooth and even (compared to most other similar products on the market), is chock-full of multidimensional sparkles, and won’t need to be set with a powder shadow.
It does set completely and doesn’t feel tacky or greasy to the touch.
(Alternatives: Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colour in Burnished Copper or MAC Constructivist Paint Pot are not sparkly, but give a similar look overall.)
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Blonde (limited edition - use any soft pink shimmery blush)
Lime Crime Great Pink Planet lipstick (Alternative: Barry M Dolly Pink)
