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.
Tisse Fantaisie #1 is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a muted, light-medium orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was surprisingly sheer when applied dry, yet this formula is supposed to be pigmented without needing a damp application. It showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear. Colour Pop Cheeky (P, $5.00) is lighter, pinker. Anastasia Fresh Peach (P, $12.00) is more orange. LORAC Apricot (LE) is more orange. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #2 (P) is more shimmery. Make Up For Ever S748 Coral (P, $21.00) is brighter, darker. Make Up For Ever S718 Salmon (P, $21.00) is slightly lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Tisse Fantaisie #2 is described as a “white satin.” It’s a brightened white with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish and subtle warm undertones It was semi-opaque regardless of whether I used it dry or damp. It had a soft, blendable consistency, but the pigmentation was less stellar. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Shades like this are certainly useful, but they are more basic so there are plenty of shades very similar to it. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Tisse Fantaisie #3 is described as a “pale green satin.” It’s a medium-dark, olive green with warm, khaki and brown tones and a golden metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation that seemed slightly richer and more intense when applied damp, but the coverage was the same regardless of application method. On me, the color wore well for eight hours. Cle de Peau Stardust #2 (P) is warmer, brighter. Gucci Beauty Fumé (Left) (P) is similar. theBalm Kawabunga (LE, $16.00) is darker. bareMinerals Flicker (P) is lighter. MAC Sea Worship (LE, $19.50) is warmer. MAC Olive Blend #3 (LE) is warmer. theBalm #16 (P, $6.50) is greener, lighter. Anastasia Moss (P, $12.00) is greener. Urban Decay Stash (LE, $18.00) is darker. Dior Bonne Etoile (384) #1 (LE) is darker. MAC Unsurpassable (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC Greensmoke (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Fiction (DC, $15.00) is similar. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #1 (LE) is warmer, brighter. bareMinerals Spectacular (P) is more metallic, darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Tisse Fantaisie #4 is described as an “intense brown.” It’s a dark, red-toned brown with warm undertones and a soft shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry, but it wasn’t very intense unless applied damp. The consistency felt soft and was blendable on the lid, and it did last for eight hours before fading, but I wish it was more pigmented. Dior Cuir Cannage #5 (P) is less shimmery, darker. Tarte Take on Bordeaux (LE) is more matte. Dior Trafalgar #5 (P) LORAC Cocoa (P) is less brown. Dior Sundeck #5 (LE) is less shimmery. theBalm #1 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery. Chanel Seduction #4 (LE) is similar. MAC Carbonized (LE, $15.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
