    I’d use the gorgeous bright gold on the inner half of the lid and blend into the warm bronze on the outer half of the lid, using the cool beige as my blending shade in the socket line and perhaps a bit above as well. Then, taking a angled eyeliner brush spritzed with water, I’d line the upper lashline and the outer half of the lower lashline with the deep chocolate shade and the beige color on the inner half of the lower lashline. That quad is perfection!

    I would make a pewter smokey eye out of it, a warmer twist on the classic! Peachy pink cheeks- maybe NARS orgasm. I wouldn’t do a nude lip, but something a little more tame- like MAC’s Bare Again

  3. I would use all 4 shades to create a shimmery neutral look, use Stila Smudgepot in Black, and finish with black mascara. For the cheeks I’d use NARS Luster and for the lips MAC Sheer Plum.

  4. I posted my eye look here http://blushingnoir.blogspot.com/2011/07/chanel-topkapi-quadra-eye-shadow.html this is probably my favorite Chanel quad of all time. Something like this should never be LE!

    Def would wear this quad with a bright blue red lippie! The Chanel Rouge Allure Rouge Byzantin that comes with this collection or, something more red like Chanel Dragon! A very barely there neutral blush and mascara. No liner.
    The emphasis would be on the lips.

    I wouldn’t! They are such beautiful shades :)

    This quad would def. be the star!!!!I’d use the lightest brown for inner corner and highlight, the golden color on the lid, and the bronze brown in crease and slighty above, and the dark brown outer v!!!!

    I actually really want to buy this…. oh my cosmetic wish list never goes down…. it just gets longer and longer…..even when I buy something from my wish list… it’s like for every one thing I buy I’ve added 10 more things to the wish list hahaha…. makeup addict?! YES YES YES!

    I would use UDPP in greed as a base, and apply the golden shade all over my lid. Then, I would apply the darkest brown as a liner color. I would use the icy taupe brown in my crease. I would pair the look with Brave Lipstick from MAC. :)

    I would use the top right as a Browbone and Inner corner highlight, the bottom right as a Lid color, the bronze at the top left as a crease color and the dark brown to line my eyes with an angled brush. I would wear a bright summery lip (MAC Vegas Volt) and bronzer!

    On a off-topic note, can you please post a new ‘Look’ Christine? There hasn’t been one all July and I LOVE reading them and then trying the look out!

    Taupe all over the lid, then bronze in the crease mixed with a whisper of the dark brown shade. Jealousy Wakes as a liner to make those neutrals SING. :O)

    I adore wearing gold shadows on my main part of my eyelid…so that’s a no brainer – the gold would go there most days. I would sometimes layer the gold with the taupe. Other times for a played down look, I would blend the gold into the taupe in the crease. Sometimes I would blend the med. brown with the taupe over the eye lid and pop the middle section of my eye with the gold well blended of course. Then add the dk brown to the crease and outer V corner with either the gold or the taupe on the inner corners of my eye. I love this pallet more than any other in a long time from Chanel and would adore to own it. Just not in the budget right now. Maybe in late Aug if it’s still around I can get it. I have not wanted a Chanel product as much as this quad in years and years! This is just so ME and to have them all there in the same quad and Chanel quality – well it’s a dream!

    I got it a few days ago and I’ve been using the lightest shade (top right) on the lid, the bronze shade (top left) on the crease, the gold shade (bottom right – like that needed to be specified) on the inner corner and the darkest shade (bottom left) as liner on the upper lash line. Nice, neutral eye look and I love it!
    On the cheeks I’ve been doing either Instant Chic from MAC or Stereo Rose from MAC as well.
    On the lips I’ve been using Martha From the Marcel Wonders collection from MAC which looks amazing under Revenge is Sweet, also from MAC.
    As you can see I’m trying to be a good girl and use all the LE stuff I got from MAC last year!

    I would first do a wash of the gorgeous gold color all over the lid, then I would lightly use the bronze color on my crease and the rich chocolaty color on the outer v very smoked out. Then I would take the bronze color under my eyes, but not all the way in. For my lips I would use a fuchsia or a bright neon pink or orange lippie!

  14. Hi, I have done a look featuring this palette.
    I am loving the excellent colour payoff of these shadows =)

  15. This palette reminds me of Armani summer bronze 2011. There are many ways how you can use these colors. You can do smokey eyes, blownish smokey eyes or use just 2 lightest colors for day look. But I personally prefer Armani palette
