Chanel is launching a striking eyeshadow quad and it is all about holiday glamour. The quad is called Chanel Rêve d’Orient and the shadows themselves are embossed with a precious star design. It's one of those shadows that is almost too pretty to use. Almost.
Chanel Rêve d’Orient ensures that eyes will be dressed for glamour all season long. The eyeshadow quad features four shades, from left, top - luminous brown, glimmering beige, rich gold and deep black. The shades are created with the new baked formulas that the new Chanel eyeshadow quads feature.
Now, for the colors! The luminous brown shade is a medium golden brown shade that has a pearl finish; the glimmering beige shade is a pretty white/ivory shade with a gold opalescence look to it and a subtle metallic finish; the rich gold shades is just that, a beautiful rich medium, metallic gold shade; the deep black is a rich, dark black with a satin finish. I like using the black shade with a damp liner brush as an eyeliner.
You can wear the shadows played up or down, but mostly, they are really for nighttime, party or holiday. They offer a lot of sparkle and metallic sheen to them. They are more subtle in color than I thought, as I only really use the deep black shade as a liner. Like all Chanel shadows, they smooth on and blend with ease and have great staying power. Even without primer, these shadows last a good 8 - 10 hours with no fading or creasing.
Today, December 1st only, this limited edition Quadra Eyeshadow palette is available on chanel.com with complimentary overnight shipping for all Chanel Rêve d’Orient purchases. The palette retails for $70.00.
