I wanted to love the gold one, but like katred has said, it has kind of a sheer base with loads of glitter. While the colour is gorgeous, I didn't know what to do with it because of the glitter factor. How are you'll wearing it?

I have both and I love them. If you check out the link in my signature, I have a review and a FOTD using both new Illusion D'Ombres. :)
You're welcome. They are both really pretty. ♥ Vision can be sheered out very nicely. Abstraction is much sheerer anyway, and it's just such a beautiful pinky-coral. :)
Wish those kinds of eyeshadow colors looked as nice on my coloring as they do on Keira.
Here is a great blog post on the Variation quad:
oh thank you so much for mention :-) I just read that this collection will be released in the US in Oct/Nov so you definitely have to try it out :-) I've been wearing these eyeshadows a lot recently and I really love them!
katred have you seen the Intuition quad irl? Does it look like it does here color-wise? I know Cafemakeup did not care for the texture of this one compared to Variation, but I think I like these colors better than the Nordies exclusive Rives.

YA I saw it at the bay too. It's been out for a while.
the other day I put vision on my lid using my finger (i usually use the brush included) and it looked amazing. It's almost like molten gold spread on my lid that with just a few sparkles to catch the light as I move...LOVEEEE
I didn't know that. The perfume is for ladies or men? Not a fan of Brad Pitt and don't care too
baghdad81 - I can't wait to swatch Vision in person.
I know. I was wonder about the #5 thing too? Maybe she meant Blue - isn't that the mens cologne?
If you get to look/swatch - let us know.

Good to know. Too bad. I think those shadows would be great for summer. I guess I can just hold them to next summer. I feel like I need a Chanel calendar to keep up with the release dates.
I saw this collection today. Spices is repromoted again, lol, I think Chanel repromotes this quad at least twice a year here. The studio showed the video of the collection and the colours look beautiful on the model. It is the same model in the promo pic.
Abstraction is a sheer pink on me. Pretty, not too warm. Maybe I can use it as a blush?
Vision is glittery like Fantasme, and the glitters will migrate. When I swatched it, they migrated so you see Abstraction has the gold bits. It is very pretty, but requires a stickier base like Too Faced glitter glue which I use for Fantasme.
Variation - The bottom two dark colours are sheer and dry, especially the bottom left shade. The bottom left shade also h!s visible glitters, but they are not too chunky. The two lighter shades are smooth and pigmented, I love the taupe!
Intuition - The gold shade is sheer, the other three are pigmented. It has a good balance of warm and cool, I think the bottom left shade is slightly cooler compared to the other shades. I feel the texture of both quads are not as smooth as the newer quads like Prelude and Rives, but have the texture of the older quads like Spices. You can see from the pics that the%2psurface is bumpy. All these quads I refer to are baked.
The pics are taken with my iPhone but I hope they give you an idea what they look like.
