Chanel Tisse Rhapsodie (248) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Rhapsodie (248) Mutli-Effect Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition set of shades inspired by the “graceful world of ballet.” It’s a cooler-toned palette that features a cool pink, iridescent pink-white, violet, and taupe brown. The palette lacked pigmentation when used dry; the formula had to be used with a dampened brush to achieve more true-to-pan color, but even then, three of the four shades would fade as the product dried down (within minutes of initial application).

Round-up: Chanel Collection Reverie Parisienne Overview & Thoughts

Chanel Spring 2015 Collection
Chanel Collection Reverie Parisienne

The collection featured an assortment of pink and coral-toned shades, much in the way that one would expect for a spring-timed launch. I was disappointed with one of the star products of the launch (Jardin de Chanel), as the texture was stiffer, while the product itself could have been more pigmented as well. Crazy Fuchsia (194) (A) ended up being the only product I really liked (personally) in the collection, because it was a very pigmented gloss with little tackiness.  I had higher hopes for both eyeshadow quads, but unfortunately, they were somewhat lacking in pigmentation.

You can see the full list of products/shades in the collection here, as I didn’t buy everything from the new collection.
