Chanel Tisse Fantaisie (236) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Tisse Fantaisie (236) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Fantaisie (236) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a mix of “pink coral, white satin, pale green satin, and intense brown.” It’s a new, limited edition quad for spring that leans warm-toned and earthy. Chanel fell short with the pigmentation on their spring quads relative to the permanent quads they released with this formula earlier in the year, which often had good or better color payoff applied dry. The majority of shades in the quad are better used with a dampened brush and bring to mind Chanel’s often-disappointing baked shadow formula of years past (which was often the non-U.S. version), though the textures are smoother in the new quad.

Tisse Fantaisie #1 is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a muted, light-medium orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was surprisingly sheer when applied dry, yet this formula is supposed to be pigmented without needing a damp application. It showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear. Colour Pop Cheeky (P, $5.00) is lighter, pinker. Anastasia Fresh Peach (P, $12.00) is more orange. LORAC Apricot (LE) is more orange. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #2 (P) is more shimmery. Make Up For Ever S748 Coral (P, $21.00) is brighter, darker. Make Up For Ever S718 Salmon (P, $21.00) is slightly lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Fantaisie #1 is described as a “white satin.” It’s a brightened white with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish and subtle warm undertones It was semi-opaque regardless of whether I used it dry or damp. It had a soft, blendable consistency, but the pigmentation was less stellar. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Shades like this are certainly useful, but they are more basic so there are plenty of shades very similar to it. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Fantaisie #1 is described as a “pale green satin.” It’s a medium-dark, olive green with warm, khaki and brown tones and a golden metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation that seemed slightly richer and more intense when applied damp, but the coverage was the same regardless of application method. On me, the color wore well for eight hours. Cle de Peau Stardust #2 (P) is warmer, brighter. Gucci Beauty Fumé (Left) (P) is similar. theBalm Kawabunga (LE, $16.00) is darker. bareMinerals Flicker (P) is lighter. MAC Sea Worship (LE, $19.50) is warmer. MAC Olive Blend #3 (LE) is warmer. theBalm #16 (P, $6.50) is greener, lighter. Anastasia Moss (P, $12.00) is greener. Urban Decay Stash (LE, $18.00) is darker. Dior Bonne Etoile (384) #1 (LE) is darker. MAC Unsurpassable (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Greensmoke (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Fiction (DC, $15.00) is similar. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #1 (LE) is warmer, brighter. bareMinerals Spectacular (P) is more metallic, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Fantaisie #1 is described as an “intense brown.” It’s a dark, red-toned brown with warm undertones and a soft shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry, but it wasn’t very intense unless applied damp. The consistency felt soft and was blendable on the lid, and it did last for eight hours before fading, but I wish it was more pigmented. Dior Cuir Cannage #5 (P) is less shimmery, darker. Tarte Take on Bordeaux (LE) is more matte. Dior Trafalgar #5 (P) LORAC Cocoa (P) is less brown. Dior Sundeck #5 (LE) is less shimmery. theBalm #1 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery. Chanel Seduction #4 (LE) is similar. MAC Carbonized (LE, $15.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

My Christmas Look (2014)
The fabled Chanel Dragon…

I’ve grown so accustomed to having different eyeshadows on each eye that whenever I apply the same eyeshadows on each eye, I’m a bit taken aback by how it looks to match! I can’t say I wasn’t testing anything on Christmas (namely, the eyeshadows), but I did bring out some of my all-time favorites. :)

Look Breakdown

EYES: ColourPop Tea Party applied to inner third of lid, both applied with a narrow brush as well as patted slightly with fingertips. ColourPop Solstice applied to the middle of lid using a medium-sized, eyeshadow brush. ColourPop Sequin applied to the outer third of the lid using the same brush as before. ColourPop To-a-T applied into the outer crease using a synthetic rounded crease brush and buffed above crease towards the brow bone. ColourPop Fleek/Effect (dark brown side) applied into outer crease and diffused slightly above crease. Burberry Trench was dusted underneath the brow bone as a highlighter with a fluffy blending brush. ColourPop Fleek/Effect (teal side) applied with an angled eyeliner brush to the lower lash line with ColourPop Sequin smudged underneath. I used Sephora Blonde Ambition on the water line to brighten.

FACE: Guerlain Parure Gold (02 and 03 mixed equally) mixed with Kevyn Aucoin Celestial applied all-over the face with a flat-topped round, synthetic brush and buffed into the skin. I patted Urban Decay Naked Loose into the skin to help set and finish the base with a tapered powder brush. Tom Ford Love Lust was applied to cheeks to add warmth and color with a feathery blush brush. Kevyn Aucoin Starlight was dusted on top of cheek bones and down the bridge of the nose to highlight. Guerlain Wulong was lightly dusted all-over face to finish the look.

LIPS: Chanel Dragon applied to lips.
