CHANEL Fall 2013 Lips & Eyes "Indecise & Fatal"

CHANEL Fall Collection 2013 -- Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour "Indecise 125" and Illusion D'Ombre Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow "Fatal 837" --  I love Chanel's Rouge Allure lipstick and the shade "Indecise" was one of those shades that I really thought I would not like, so I passed on it.  Well, after another look online, I thought I would give it a try.  I am so glad I did because this is a lovely pink-beige shade and it looks fabulous with a nude lip liner pencil.  I thought to myself: "Do I really need another beigey-nude-pink" lipstick?  Ha-ha!  But oh...wait...this one is different...it's not your usual pinky-beige-nude!


I adore Chanel's packaging!  The Rouge Allure lipstick tube has a clever design: You push-in the bottom of the tube to open!

I had never tried Chanel's Long-Wearing eyeshadows before.  The color "Fatal" is quite unique -- it's a deep mauve-plummy shade with lots of silvery shimmer!  Actually I would not say that it is shimmery at all; it is more of a foil-like effect and/or sheen.  It's very beautiful.  I love the applicator that comes with it and I recommend using this to apply the shadow and/or line your eyes or simply applying with your finger.

This formula is quite interesting and can be a bit tricky because it's a creamy, mousse-gel formula; very different from a cream shadow.


I find that it is easier to apply this shadow in thin layers because if you try to lay it on thick, you will get little "balls" (from the gel formula)....the key is to blend-blend-blend!!

My eyelids tend to get oily, so I found that using a primer before really helps the shadow hold and last a lot longer.  I did wear it without a primer, and after a few hours, it seemed to just melt away.  So, if you have oily eyelids, I strongly recommend using a primer first.

This eyeshadow is quite expensive (reason why I waited so long to try it), but keep in mind that the amount you are getting is HUGE!  I mean, this eyeshadow will last forever!  You don't need to use very much, so if you look at it that way, it is worth it.

I used this on my lid and over my crease and as eyeliner on my lower lash line.
