Soft Look for Summer - Featuring MAC Crosswires and Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Essential Long Wear Eyeshadow in Emerville

Hello Everyone

Hope you all are doing well and are happy and healthy. 

This is the look which I have been sporting a lot lately. The eyeshadow Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre Essential Long Wear Eyeshadow in Emerville, a cream eyeshadow, is such a nice soft shimmery peachy beige shade, it creates a lovely illuminating effect for eyes and looks very subtle and soft during the day time. The formula is soft, smooth like butter and cushiony, yep, it kind of presses when you insert brush in the  product . As it claims to have long wearing formula, it doesn't crease or fade for a long time on my oily lids, true to it's claim. It stays as it is for 6-7 hours and then starts creasing slightly. It comes with a tiny synthetic fiber  brush applicator which is perfect for applying this product. I use the very same brush to apply this product.  Perfect for summers. I purchased it from and it costed me around INR 2000/- after all this discounts which this website provides. There is no justification for a 2k bucks eyeshadow. Only justification is your desire to indulge into such luxury. But, to me the product is awesome and I have no regrets buying such an expensive product. But, still one can have have at least one of these asthis product is a pure luxury.

Chanel decribes this product as "This intensely shimmering long-wear eyeshadow offers true versatility. An innovative gel texture that is both soft and cushiony allows it to be worn as eyeshadow or eyeliner. Includes a specially designed shadow/liner brush, developed specifically for this unique formula."

Pairing this shade with MAC's Crosswires gives me a glamorous look. MAC describes Crosswiress as pinky-orange, though it looks more pinky-coral on me than orange. It comes in cremesheen formula which is smooth and glides very easily and gives a lovely sheen to lips. It stays put for good 7-8 hours without fading a bit, even after a full meal. Has an awesome color pay-off. Loved this product and now understand why everyone in the blogger community rave so much about this lipstick. Again, a perfect product for summers.

And me with these luxurious products.
