I seem to be on a pattern with

Makeup Wars

and choosing a

Chanel

product as my submission. For the last battle, which was my favorite mascara, I chose the new

Chanel Le Volume

. It was quite obvious why. You didn't even need to read the post, just look at the photos!

This time, since it is the holiday season, we are concentrating on metallics. My choice is the new Chanel 817 Apparence Illusion d'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow ($36.00), which came out this year with their holiday collection.

What the Neiman Marcus website has to say about the ChanelIllusion d'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow:

This intensely shimmering long-wear eye shadow offers true versatility.

An innovative gel texture that is both soft and cushiony allows it to be worn as eye shadow or eyeliner.

Includes a specially designed shadow/liner brush, developed specifically for this unique formula.

(L-R: swatched once, swatched heavily, swiped once with the included brush)

Apparence is a sheer gold that is beautiful to use alone as an all over wash to the eye, layered for a golden pop or as a base to your favorite holiday shadows.

The Illusion d'Ombre works best for me when I use my finger to apply, and with sheer shades like Apparence I tend to layer for more pigment. A lot of holiday palettes will work well with Apparence, but especially Chanel Harmonie du Soir Quadra Eye Shadow, from the same collection.

Last August I reviewed Epatant & Mirifique and went into more detail about the formula there. In a nut shell, it's cushiony, it's a gel and it wears like iron.

Purchase the ChanelApparence Illusion d'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow online at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Chanel.com or at your local Chanel counter. Apparence is limited edition.

See what the other participants in this installment of Makeup Wars came up with! What WILL we think of next?!
