Chanel Delicatesse Ombres Fleuries Eyeshadow Palette
Chanel Delicatesse Ombres Fleuries Eyeshadow Palette

Chanel Delicatesse Ombres Fleuries Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.14 oz.) has finishes that “range from matte to satin to shimmer,” with a “smudge-proof formula [that] can be applied dry for subtle shading, or dampened for more intense colour, all with long-wearing results.”  Overall, it’s a good palette with an interesting mix of colors and textures.  When trying it out, the green shade wasn’t as smooth or as easy to use as the other three shades, as it had an almost sparkly finish that made it less inclined to smooth out and bind together.  I didn’t encounter this issue with the other shades, though, and they applied more smoothly and were easier to blend.  I wore all four shades together, and the green one was very slightly creased after eight hours, while the rest held up without creasing and had only minor fading after nine hours of wear.

Delicatesse #1 is a neutral, light-medium gray-green with a frosted, metallic finish. Applied dry, it’s semi-sheer, and applied damp, it is more opaque and has a stronger metallic sheen. Chanel Jade Shore is greener, warmer. MAC Lady Grey is darker, less shimmery. Lancome Enduring Vert is lighter. Chanel Riviere is slightly lighter less frosted. See comparison swatches.

Delicatesse #2 is a pale white with a green sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff when applied dry and then took on a more metallic sheen with opaque color payoff when applied damp. MAC Zestful is greener. Lancome Fashion Forward is paler. Chanel Promesse #4 is similar. Sugarpill Lumi is bluer. See comparison swatches.

Delicatesse #3 is a warm, pink-coral with a soft, pearly sheen. Applied dry, it still had good color but was softer overall. Applied damp, it’s smoother and brighter. Chanel Pink Lagoon is darker. Urban Decay Scratch is darker. MAC Pink Frontier is similar. Chanel Rose de Mai is less shimmery. bareMinerals Page Six is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Delicatesse #4 is a warm-toned, medium-dark plum. Applied dry or damp, the color payoff was pretty good, and the texture was soft, smooth, and lightly frosted. I really didn’t see much of a difference between the two applications. Disney Master is cooler-toned. MAC Festive Delight is less shimmery. MAC Brazenly is bolder. See comparison swatches.

Overall, it's a good palette with an interesting mix of colors and textures. The green shade was the only one I had any big issues with, but even that was more minor than it was major.

  1. I like this compact, but have quite a few shadows in a similar range. The only pan I do not have a potential dupe for would be that yummy frosty grey green. I’m very attracted to it. I put in an order yesterday with Fyrinnae and chose a loose shadow that looks like it might be in a similar ballpark, but maybe a little more like sage green. Can’t wait to try it over a dark base.

  2. This color combo seems strange to me. I’m sure some will love it, but I just don’t see how they compliment each other. The plumy color is lovely, though.

  3. Liz

    The colors are nice, but I don’t really find it worth the price.

  4. I just oohed and aahed out loud when I saw this! looks beautiful, can’t wait to check it out!

  5. I wish Chanel would come out with more greens in their palettes! I frown a little more every time they come out with another pink-based one. Sure is lovely, even if it’s not my style!

  6. I really like all the shades in this quad, I just don’t like it as a palette. There are too many light shades, and not enough contrast between the colors.

    This is gorgeous…the first thing chanel has put out in a long time that I’ve been interested in.

    Christine, do you if this will be available at Nordstrom?

  9. ThatFashionista

    I have this palette, and the trick to using it is to layer, layer, layer. All three of the lighter shades transforms into completely different shades on top of the dark plum shade. Hands down, one of the best quads Chanel has released in a long while!

  10. Susan

    Very pretty swatches, but I’m confused about Chanel’s description! “Matte to satin to shimmer” finishes? I don’t see anything even resembling a matte there! Beautiful shades, but definitely a little too much shimmer for me.

    This is so so pretty.

  13. I’ve been going back and forth on this one for a while. I love the colours, but I’m not sure how well they’ll work on me, other than the plum, which I believe I can dupe fairly easily. So many pretty things, such limited funds…

  14. I love this colour combo,,,beautiful! And the flower pattern on the shadows just adds to the beauty of the entire pallet.

    For some reason this makes me think 1990’s…I like it, but feel it’s dupe-able.

  16. The last shade is gorgeous! Love the look that you did with this palette, Christine. I may have to pick this one up. :)

  17. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of rossella missrossre

    Nice.
    I’m sure these shades are beautiful on green, light brown, blue eyes.I love them on you but I guess they would not suit my dark brown.
    And $60!!!!Too much for s.thing that doesn’t seem VERY very very special to me :-))

    However Christine thanks for your always precise, exaustive, precious job. Really useful. Really.

    I love this compact, I just wish it wasn´t limited edition :( . Are there any other Chanel compacts that perform well that aren´t limited edition?

  19. Gemma W

    ehhh..
    I don’t like this color combo…
    I wish they combine other shades together..
    Last time a BA @ chanel showed me ’cause I was finding some eye shadows for my collection.
    pretty but not unique ….
    but limited edition for eye shadow palettes from Chanel are always in their best quality…

  20. I really like this quad, but I wish there was another shade in place of the plum. Purple eye shadow doesn’t always look that great on me.

  21. Boring. There are several comparable dupes for this palette.

  22. elizabeth

    Is this closer to the American or European formula? The weight is listed as .14 oz which is about in between the two, and the pans are like the Euro quads… I just bought Raffinement in the Euro formula and actually really like it.
