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).

MAC All About Plum Look in a Box

MAC All About Plum Look in a Box ($49.50 for 0.43 oz.) is described as “shades of cool-toned lilacs, soft pale pinks, and silvery warm greys.” The palette contains two blushes, six eyeshadows, two lipsticks, and a double-ended brush (275SE/316SE). Each eyeshadow is 0.0176 oz. each (0.106 oz. total), blush is 0.14 oz. each (0.28 oz. total), and lipstick is 0.02 oz. each (0.04 oz. total). Based on price per ounce, the kit contains $31.68 worth of eyeshadow, $28 worth of blush, and $6.40 worth of lipstick, which adds up to $66.08. There is also a dual-ended brush, so I guess that’s valued at $34.92 in order to add up to the $101 value listed.

MAC All About Beige Look in a Box

MAC All About Beige Look in a Box ($49.50 for 0.43 oz.) is described as “shades of soft tan, copper, and pewtered bronze.” The palette contains two blushes, six eyeshadows, two lipsticks, and a double-ended brush (275SE/316SE). Each eyeshadow is 0.0176 oz. each (0.106 oz. total), blush is 0.14 oz. each (0.28 oz. total), and lipstick is 0.02 oz. each (0.04 oz. total). Based on price per ounce, the kit contains $31.68 worth of eyeshadow, $28 worth of blush, and $6.40 worth of lipstick, which adds up to $66.08. There is also a dual-ended brush, so I guess that’s valued at $34.92 in order to add up to the $101 value listed. I was underwhelmed by the palette; it’s not the worst I’ve tried from MAC, but it’s still a far cry from when MAC does their best. The quality is all over the map, but several shades suffered from drier, stiffer textures that made them harder to apply and use. As a heads up, the blush pans are on the smaller side, so you’ll need to use a smaller-than-average-sized blush brush for application.

LORAC Navy Skinny Palette

LORAC Navy Skinny Palette This has now sold out online (it was still up yesterday, boo!!), so your only opportunity will be to see if you can find it in stores. While I liked the Nude palette, I found the Navy one to be rather powdery, particularly when I actually tried to use it and apply the colors to my lid. They just didn’t adhere well, and instead, had a tendency to look both powdery and uneven, plus they didn’t wear as long as the other palette did.

LORAC Nude Skinny Palette

LORAC Nude Skinny Palette ($15.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a set of seven shades of warm-toned neutrals ranging from pale beige to reddish-brown. This has now sold out online (it was still up yesterday, boo!!), so your only opportunity will be to see if you can find it in stores. I quite liked this one, so if you can find it, I think it’s well-worth considering for the wallet-friendly $15 price tag. I’ll be posting about the Navy palette tomorrow (which is also sold out online, sigh!), but a note in advance: not as impressive.
