Sometimes a brand does something to shake things up just a little bit that makes such a difference and that is what CHANEL has done with their new Quadra Eyeshadow. LES 4 OMBRES is redefined and ready to wear, just like CHANEL's iconic tweed jacket, which just so happens to be the inspiration for the entire new range, which is now in a new baked powder formula. And it is magnificent.
As the new LES 4 OMBRES are baked, they are very pigment rich. The shadows are super silky soft, and they glide on over my eyes with ease. Of course I use an eyeshadow primer daily because it is just naturally part of my routine, but I did test them without one and I was thrilled with the results. I received all day long-lasting, smudge-proof and crease-free wear. These are shadow palettes you want in your makeup wardrobe.
Each palette contains two medium tones for colour and contrast, a deep shadow for a contour and a light shade for higlighting and illuminating.
The new LES 4 OMBRES palettes:
Copper, Peach Beige, Intense Apricot, Grey Brown
Soft Grey, Iridescent White Gold, Grey Mauve, Velvet Grey
Grey Lilac, Rosy White, Lavender Pink, Eggplant Brown
Iridescent Mauve, Pale pink, Bright Pink, Deep Violet
Intense Beige, Satin Gold, Luminous Beige, Khaki Brown
Blue Breen, Silver Pink, Platinum Khaki, Intense Green
Golden Taupe, Light Rose Beige, Rose-Gold Beige, Red Brown
Metallic Blue, Light Pink, Shimmering Grey, Deep Navy Blue
CHANEL has kept six shades in the original pressed formula so not to worry if you were a fan. It is great that there are so many options to choose from. I honestly don't think you would want to go back once you try the new baked formula though.
I don't even know how to pick a favorite because they really are all beautiful and so versatile. I have been using TISSÉ MADEMOISELLE, TISSÉ RIVOLI and TISSÉ VENDÔME more than the others; I think they are the more neutral of all the palettes.
Each CHANEL LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eyeshadow palette retails for $61.00 and is available at chanel.com specialty retailers and fine department stores like SAKS and Nordstrom now. You can see more at the special CHANEL mini site.
