Chanel Rouge Noir Illusion d’Ombre vs Nars Subra Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow, Burberry Mulberry Sheer Eyeshadow and Urban Decay Roach Eyeshadow

Rouge Noir vs Mulberry vs Roach vs Subra comparison swatchesI’ve been playing with Chanel Rouge Noir Illusion d’Ombre, the newest addition to my eyeshadow collection, this morning to see how it compares to other burgundy and plummy shades I own. I ofter go crazy about a product just to realise I already own something very similar when I get home. I’ve pulled out Nars Subra Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow, Burberry Mulberry Sheer Eyeshadow and Urban Decay Roach Eyeshadow to see how they compare.

I’ve expected Chanel Rouge Noir Illusion d’Ombre to stand out as it is the only cream eyeshadow of the bunch and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s a similar tone as Nars Subra Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow, but Subra is darker, more black and the multi-dimensional effect is not as obvious when applied to the eyes. Burberry Mulberry Sheer Eyeshadow is a bit warmer, less sparkly. Urban Decay Roach Eyeshadow is a different tone, warmer, earthy and with gold sheen.

All of these are great quality eyeshadows, very well pigmented and easy to blend. Nars Subra retails at £21/1.5g, Chanel Rouge Noir Illusion d’Ombre is £25/4g, Burberry Mulberry Sheer Eyeshadow is unfortunately discontinued but you can get it in a new Burberry Eye Colour Silk formula for £23/2.7g and Urban Decay Roach Eyeshadow is £14/1.5g.

  1. Uf, ova Narsova senka je baš po mom ukusu, ali odnos cene i količine je učinio da se zagrcnem.

  2. Great swatch photos, I can definitely see the nuanced differences between all of these. Totally justified in owning all of them! ;) Out of yours I only own the Burberry Mulberry – mine is the Sheer formula too. Have you compared that to eht new Wet / Dry version – are they the same?

    1. Glad it’s not just me seeing the difference :D Re Mulberry – no, not yet. I don’t have their counter near by unfortunately and they don’t have the old eyeshadows in store anymore so I would have to bring my own for comparison. I do plan to stop by their beauty boutique next weekend though so I’ll have a look for you :) xx

    2. I’ve compared the Mulberry and Rosewood old, sheer eyeshadows with new ones and they are the same! The only difference is that you can get a stronger finish out of the new ones if you use them wet :)
