Round-up: Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quads (Fall 2014) Overview & Thoughts

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Mutli Effect Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is the newest eyeshadow formula and launch from the brand for fall. They’ve introduced eight quads–all are new and joining the permanent line-up–plus one limited edition variation (Poesie, which I do not have). The quality is consistent across the board; no quad scored below A- (two A-s, six As), which was very impressive. It is a huge improvement over the traditional baked formula of past Chanel quads, and it is more consistent than Chanel’s regular (U.S.) eyeshadow formula. The eyeshadows are soft and blendable, which makes them pretty easy to use and apply.

Chanel Tisse Cambon (228) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Cambon (228) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a mix of shades that range from light pink to dark purple. This is one of the more “colorful” variations in the eight new and permanent quads that Chanel has released. Overall, it was pretty good with decent to good color payoff, softer textures, and longer-wear. The entire quad, though visually they don’t seem particularly small, contains less product than most palettes/quads (including the regular U.S. version of quads). Baked formulations often weigh less than more traditional powder formulas do, but it’s hard to say if it contains as many uses as the regular quads.

Chanel Tisse Riviera (224) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Riviera (224) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a cool-toned set of shades with a pop of blue. I think for someone who likes a bluish, smoky eye, this might be an interesting palette. I love a silver/gray-shot blue, because it’s a nice variation on blue that is noticeable but never feels over-the-top. The quality is good overall, though the blue shade was the worst-performing (but not a miss).

Chanel Tisse Gabrielle (208) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a cooler-toned mix of darker neutrals with one warmer shade in the form of a white gold, otherwise the quad is variations on taupe.
