Chanel Tisse Mademoiselle (214) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Mademoiselle (214) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a mix of beige and brown that runs warm-toned. The colors work well together, though I felt like this palette was less versatile compared to others as it seemed to offer less contrast when used as the medium brown and peach were very similar applied. They work, but the look ends up being subtle gradient of light peach to brown, which may or may not be what you’re looking for. The entire quad, though visually they don’t seem particularly small. 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 Camelia (202) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Camelia (202) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, pink and purple selection of shades. Overall, the quad had good color payoff, soft, smooth textures that were easy to apply to bare skin as well as blended well. All four shades wore well for over nine hours on me, with the darkest shade wearing slightly longer. To reiterate, these are significantly lighter (smaller) at 0.07 oz. for the entire quad, though visually they don’t seem particularly small. 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 Rivoli (226) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Rivoli (226) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a set of warm-toned neutrals. It is very reminiscent of Chanel Raffinement, though they’re not exactly the same, they are certainly similar. All four shades wore well for just over nine hours and after, there was very, very slight creasing (no primer). The texture is soft, smooth, and they eyeshadows are incredibly blendable. The only downside is that the baked formula is a very lightweight one, so the quad only contains 0.07 oz., when many single powder eyeshadows are 0.05 oz. on average. Visually, they don’t seem particularly small, and it is often the case with baked products that they weigh less than traditional powders, but it’s hard to say if it contains as many uses as the regular quads.
