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.

MAC Leap Mineralize Eyeshadow Duo

MAC Leap Mineralize Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “shimmery lavender.” Here’s the last duo in the collection that I have, and it is one of the least impressive due to the second shade being a really sparkly, sheer, fall-out prone mess to apply to the lid. I would highly recommend using a slightly tacky, white base to improve the consistency, wear, and payoff.

MAC Uninhibited Mineralize Eyeshadow Duo

MAC Uninhibited Mineralize Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “shimmery light grey.” The formula can be used wet or dry, with the dry application being sheerer and the color is described as buildable. The color is sheer to buildable, as described, but the texture of the darker shade is drier and almost crumbly.

MAC Just Breathe Mineralize Eyeshadow Duo

MAC Just Breathe Mineralize Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “shimmery light blue.” It seems like the duos in this collection consistency have one smoother, easier-to-use shade and one drier shade that’s less impressive.

Chanel Tisse Paris (238) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Paris (238) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is the cooler-toned quad in the collection. I think this particular quad is less pigmented than the original set of quads released in the new eyeshadow formula. If you like the concept and don’t mind using your eyeshadows with a dampened brush, then you might still enjoy this, or else use a white eyeshadow base to get the colors to pop more. If you like the idea of softer pinks with gray, this might work. I wish the darker gray was more blendable, though.

Sneak Peek: Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Eye Palette Photos & Swatches

Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Eye Palette ($39.00 for 0.41 oz.) is a set of 24 eyeshadows to celebrate the color of the year: Marsala. Last year’s palette was larger in size and in amount ($48.00 for 1.53 oz.) with 24 eyeshadows and one blush. This year, there are still 24 eyeshadows (but no blush), and each eyeshadow is 0.017 oz. (compared to 0.059 oz. each) — just a heads up. As of this morning, it is already available for purchase from Sephora. I’m working through testing the shades, but there are quite a few here, so while I’m working as fast as I can, it may be three or four days before I have a review ready (possibly longer).
