Chanel Lilium Eyeshadow Quad ($57.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a collection of green and “brown” shades. The lighest shade is a soft peach beige with subtle warmth and a barely-there frost finis. The second lightest shade is a yellowed chartreuse green with a medium frost finish. Next, there is a smoky, bluish green with a blackened base and a metallic-frost finish. The final shade is the most complex, because it’s a mix of mauve, gray, and taupe with a dusting of cool bronze shimmer.
All four shades applied really nicely; pigmented enough to provide true-to-pan color but the texture was soft to allow for really easy application, where the colors blended seamlessly with each other and adhered well to the lid (over a base). There is a mix of tones here–the lighter shades are warmer and brightening, while the two darker shades are cooler, smokier. The size of the quad is nice, too — each eyeshadow is about 0.06 oz., which is a little higher than the average individual eyeshadow (0.05 oz.). When you start thinking about Chanel, their palettes are often the best bang for your buck.

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye with the 249. Apply the chartreuse eyeshadow to the lower half of the lid from inner to outer with the 239, just patting it on. Next, apply the mauve-taupe eyeshadow above the crease with the 222, blending outwards. With the 239, apply the blackened green eyeshadow into the crease with the 239, blending slightly downwards to cover the remaining portion of the lid and softening with the chartreuse eyeshadow. Highlight the brow bone with the beige eyeshadow with the 217. Apply 17L liner on the lower water line, and then smudge the blackened green eyeshadow against the lower lash line with the edge of the 239. Finish by sweeping lashes with Film Noir mascara.
For cheeks, apply Bronze Corail bronzer on the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temple with the 116.
For lips, apply Sari Dore lipstick first, then top with Pensee glossimer for a complementing lip.
