chanel came out with a three piece collection called Noir Et Or Paris-Shanghai that included a solid metallic gold, a flaky iridescent glittery gold glaze, and a matte black. a few weeks ago i saw a three piece set in a local icing store in my closet mall that had a similar color scheme, a solid metallic gold, a flaky iridescent glittery gold glaze, and a solid black.
blogs. they seem to be basically the same idea and the average consumer wouldn't know the difference at a glance.
this is one coat of the black (the icings are all no names in this 3 piece set) over my faux Halloween Dita claws, and one coat of the iridescent gold. good opaque black, but can't really compare it with black velvet because it isn't matte. the glitter is awesome, slightly more coppery in hue than illusion d'Or.
i purchased these products myself. please see disclosure statement for more information.
