Chanel Tisse Camelia (202) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Tisse Camelia (202) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Camelia (202) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, pink and purple selection of shades. Overall, the quad had good color payoff, soft, smooth textures that were easy to apply to bare skin as well as blended well. All four shades wore well for over nine hours on me, with the darkest shade wearing slightly longer. To reiterate, these are significantly lighter (smaller) at 0.07 oz. for the entire quad, though visually they don’t seem particularly small. 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.

Tisse Camelia #1 is described as a “grey lilac.” It’s a medium-dark, plummy brown with subtle warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, and it applied very smoothly and easily. It wore well for nine and a half hours on me. Bobbi Brown Smokey Grey (LE, $21.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Urban Decay Mugshot (P, $18.00) is warmer, more frosted. Makeup Geek Twilight (P, $5.99) is lighter. Chanel Gri-Gri (101) (LE, $29.50) is lighter. theBalm Just This Once Jamie (P, $16.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Midnight Rodeo (P, $18.00) is more frosted. MAC Rare Find (LE, $21.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Camelia #2 is described as a “rosy white.” It’s a light, slightly muted, white with a frosted finish and subtle cool undertones. In the pan, you can see the pink tinge, but applied, I couldn’t really detect them but cooler complexions might see more of a nuance. It had great color payoff, while the texture of the powder was finely-milled and silky but just a smidgen powdery. The color stayed on well for nine and a half hours before fading. It is a basic shade, so there are several very similar shades of white eyeshadows: See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Camelia #3 is described as a “lavender pink.” It’s a light, peachy-pink with a golden shimmer-sheen finish. It had good pigmentation, though not quite opaque, but the texture was very soft and smooth. This shade wore well for almost nine and a half hours on me. theBalm #14 (P, $6.50) is a smidgen lighter. theBalm #4 (P, $6.50) is less pink. MAC Sweet Allure (P, $15.00) is pinker, less shimmery. Dior Golden Flower #1 (LE) is warmer. Laura Mercier Primrose (P, $22.00) is darker. Too Faced Ringleader (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. Chanel Delicatesse #3 (LE) is pinker. theBalm Stubborn (P, $16.00) is less pink. MAC Pink Frontier (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. Le Metier de Beaute Nouvelle (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Camelia #4 is described as an “eggplant brown.” It’s a smoldering, purpled plum with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly finish. It had excellent color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly. This shade wore well for ten hours before it started to show very faint signs of creasing. Too Faced Rhinestone (P, $16.00) is lighter. Too Faced Sugar Plum (LE, $16.00) is warmer, lighter. LORAC Deep Purple (P) is similar. MAC Pinkluxe #5 (P) is darker. Illamasqua Queen of the Night (LE) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Tisse Rivoli (226) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Tisse Rivoli (226) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Rivoli (226) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a set of warm-toned neutrals. It is very reminiscent of Chanel Raffinement, though they’re not exactly the same, they are certainly similar. All four shades wore well for just over nine hours and after, there was very, very slight creasing (no primer). The texture is soft, smooth, and they eyeshadows are incredibly blendable. The only downside is that the baked formula is a very lightweight one, so the quad only contains 0.07 oz., when many single powder eyeshadows are 0.05 oz. on average. Visually, they don’t seem particularly small, and it is often the case with baked products that they weigh less than traditional powders, but it’s hard to say if it contains as many uses as the regular quads.

Tisse Rivoli #1 is described as a “golden taupe.” It’s a dark taupe with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had really good color payoff, and the texture was soft, smooth, and silky. This shade wore well for nine and a half hours on me before showing slight creasing. YSL Saharienne #4 (P) is warmer. MAC Soul Serenade (LE, $19.50) is darker, less shimmery. MAC Silver Dawn (LE, $19.50) is warmer. Anastasia Antique (LE) is cooler-toned. Illamasqua Acute (P) is a cream product. MAC Supersweet #1 (LE, $21.00) is similar. MAC Street Cool (LE) is a cream product. MAC Twilight Falls (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned, less shimmery. Chanel Raffinement #1 (P) is warmer. bareMinerals A-Ha (P) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Rivoli #2 is described as a “light rose beige.” It’s a gold-shimmered, light beige with warm undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but the texture was still very soft and silky. This shade didn’t show signs of creasing until after nine and a half hours of wear. MAC Fabulous Three #1 (LE) is lighter. YSL Saharienne #1 (P) is less shimmery. LORAC Beige (P) is less shimmery. Too Faced Riviera (P, $16.00) is similar. Chanel Jardin Zen #2 (LE) is more pearly. theBalm #18 (P, $6.50) is similar. Tarina Tarantino Elektron (P) is darker. Chanel Quadrille #2 (LE) is warmer. MAC Phresh Out #1 (LE) is similar. MAC Exquisite Ego #1 (LE, $21.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Rivoli #3 is described as a “rose-gold beige.” It’s a medium brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had excellent color payoff, and it applied smoothly and evenly to the skin. When I tested it, the color wore well for nine and a half hours. LORAC Mocha (P) is darker. NARS Iraklion (P, $24.00) is a cream product. Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Haze #2 (P) is darker. MAC Pink Sensibilities #1 (LE, $21.00) is warmer. Makeup Geek Homecoming (P, $5.99) is slightly yellower. Laura Mercier Bamboo (P, $23.00) is similar. Disney by Sephora Sultana (LE) is lighter. Disney by Sephora Les Poissons (LE) is similar. Urban Decay YDK (LE, $18.00) is more metallic. MAC Caramel Sundae (LE, $15.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tisse Rivoli #4 is described as a “red brown.” It’s a dark brown with subtle, warm reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had rich pigmentation, while the texture was blendable and smooth to the touch. It lasted for nine hours before starting to fade. bareMinerals Toasted Espresso (LE, $14.00) is similar. Chanel Seduction #4 (LE) is warmer. MAC Constructivist (P, $18.00) is a cream product. MAC Havana (LE, $19.50) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Dentelle Precieuse Illuminating Powder
Chanel Dentelle Precieuse Illuminating Powder

Chanel Dentelle Precieuse Illuminating Powder ($80.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as shades of “beige, pink, and bronze.” It’s a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a soft, luminous sheen. Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is more shimmery. IT Cosmetics Hello Light (P, $24.00) is more metallic. Giorgio Armani Belladonna (LE, $88.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Glint (LE) is pinker. MAC Belightful (LE) is more sparkly. Chanel Mouche de Beaute Illuminating Powder (LE, $80.00) is yellower. bareMinerals The Love Affair (LE, $26.00) is pinker, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Whether or not this highlighter is worth the splurge is a discussion between you and your wallet, but I can tell you that the quality is superb. Chanel has created an exceptional illuminating powder that adds a natural, luminous glow that lifts and brightens the face. The shimmer is fine and creates a delicate sheen, rather than a frosted finish, and so it doesn’t emphasize pores. Instead, it gives the skin a smoother, softer look as it reflects light. It can be worn alone over cheek bones or dusted lightly all-over the face, and of course, it can be layered over your favorite blush to add more sheen. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and smooth, while the highlighter wore well for eight and a half hours on me. It’s available now as a Nordstrom exclusive.
