Free shipping on Chanel.com means time for me to try a couple things. I already ordered Mademoiselle Rouge Coco which will be here Monday. It was back ordered, so I am amazed at how fast it will arrive. My nail polish got here in three days. I love UPS!
I got to choose two deluxe samples. I chose a Rouge Coco sampler pack and an Inimitable Noir Mascara. I have never tried Chanel mascaras, but this is nothing to write home about. I will judge the Rouge Cocos when I get my full sized one. Based on the sampler, I may be picking up another color or two.
Now on to the real gem:
Illusion D'Or is my first Chanel polish, and it would have to be unique to justify the $25 price tag. This definitely fits the bill. It is a sheer gold shimmer with larger round silver holographic pieces. The application is smooth and it does not feel chunky to the touch as some glitters can. I love how subtle it is from a distance, but how it also catches the light. I can see getting a lot of wear out of this color since it is neutral and light enough to disguise chipping and tip wear.

Now prepare yourself for the horror of my hands in macro. I am sorry.

Overall I will not hesitate to order again from Chanel.com, and this will not be my last Chanel polish.
