Chanel Poesie (234) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow
Chanel Poesie (234) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow

Chanel Poesie (234) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a limited edition palette that features a mix of bronze, beige, pink, and taupe. It sold out at most retailers quickly, but Macy’s continues to have it in stock. The colors work well to create a warm, smoky eye with hints if pink and plum in it. The palette performed well overall, and the formula was consistent with the other quads in the range.

Poesie #1 is a medium bronzy brown with warm undertones and a slightly metallic finish. It had nice color payoff that went on very smoothly and evenly. The texture was soft and finely-milled, which made blending effortless. On me, it wore well for nine hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Poesie #2 is a light, yellowed beige with a soft, frosted finish. It has incredibly fine shimmer, but there’s enough of a sheen that it’s not a satin or pearl finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that was easy to use. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Poesie #3 is a pale, pink-lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly. The powder had a soft, finely-milled feel to it that seemed just a little drier compared to the other shades in the quad. I didn’t see any fading until after eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Poesie #4 is a rich, deep taupewith subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The sheen is so prominent that it almost looks wet when applied. It had good pigmentation, and the powder felt soft, finely-milled, and silky on the skin. The color stayed on well for nine hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Cle de Peau Stardust (302) Eyeshadow Quad
Cle de Peau Stardust (302) Eyeshadow Quad

Cle de Peau Stardust (302) Eyeshadow Quad ($55.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes shades of beige, warm green, brown, and murky green. Cle de Peau’ sells their eyeshadows as refills (which is just a plastic pan with the four shades), and you can elect to purchase a plastic compact to put them in for an additional $25. I put mine in a Z-palette by attaching a small magnetic to the bottom of the pan. It’s an interesting mix of shades if you like your beige and greens together, but I didn’t end up loving the way the colors worked together, partially because the warmer green shade doesn’t look as intense on the lid as it does swatched or in the pan, so it loses contrast on the lid.

Stardust #1 is a soft, muted beige with very subtle warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was very soft and blendable, though a little powdery initially. It had good color payoff and was easy to use. It wore well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Stardust #2 is a medium-dark, warm-toned olive green with a soft, frosted finish. It had really nice pigmentation, and the texture was soft–almost creamy–and effortless to blend. The only thing I noticed was that it seemed to apply slightly more mutedly than it swatched. On the lid, the color stayed on well for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Stardust #3 is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm, yellow-ish undertones and a lightly frosted finish–almost a combination of frost and satin to me, because there is very fine shimmer to it. It might be harder to tell against my skin tone, but it did have good pigmentation that was mostly opaque. The texture was a little powdery, though it was incredibly easy to blend on the lid without losing intensity. It lasted well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Stardust #4 is a dark, dirty green with subtle, warm olive undertones and a golden-green metallic sheen. It had nice color payoff, and the texture was very smooth and finely-milled, but there was a slight dryness to it. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
