Chanel Beiges Ombres Tissees Review, Photos, Swatches


Chanel Beiges Ombres Tissees

Chanel Beiges Ombres Tissee

Chanel Beiges Ombres Tissees (Iridescent Effects Eyes) ($75.00 for 0.46 oz.) is a limited edition illuminating powder that can be used on eyes and cheeks. It’s rather massive–plenty of product here–at 0.46 oz., which is double the size of your average blush. It’s many times larger than your average eyeshadow, which this can be used for as well (think highlighting the brow bone as the more go-to use).

It has a glitter-shimmer overlay that disappears after a few uses, though you’ll find bits and pieces still caught within the woven tweed pattern for several uses. When the glitter overlay is removed, the powder is still shimmery. As far as Chanel highlighters go, this is on the more frosted end of the spectrum. You won’t find large chunks of shimmer, but it has an obvious reflective sheen. Beiges wears well without fading over eight hours, and the texture is soft and finely milled (well, after you remove the chunkier glittery flecks!). I think the higher frost in the finish makes it a bit over-the-top, and if you do get the glittery bits in there, it looks heavy.

Though there are three shades, the differences between them are slight. When used together, it’s a pale, champagne beige. It consists of a pale pink, yellowed beige, and white-beige. It highlight cheeks well, and despite its frostier finish, it didn’t seem to emphasize pores. I find it’s pretty when worn, but whether it is worth the hefty price tag is another story. The shade itself isn’t particularly unique, and with the heavier sheen, easier to find in many brands (finding subtler, more refined highlighters is can be trying from my experience). It’s more a collector’s product than a must-have staple in your bag.

Thank you so much for all the close up photos! It’s so damn pretty, but in the end it’s just a highlighter for $75. I’m not a makeup collector, so it would get used and frankly, I’ve got enough highlighters to get the job done at a fraction of the cost.

I did enjoy looking at it, though, thanks for the review!

The best part of this is how great Rebel and Offshoot look on your lips…I was literally looking at your lips thinking ‘what a fantastic color!’, and then I looked and saw it in the description. Thanks! I’m adding Offshoot to my Mac Me Over list. 🙂

This item is gorgeous when worn. It’s really an eye shadow that can be used as a soft, subtle highlighter on cheeks. It does have an overly sparkly top-spray which only lasts one or two times and can easily be removed if you just dust over the top with a blush brush. It makes the most soft, beautiful glow to the skin on your eyes, unlike any other eye shadow I’ve ever tried and I’ve been a cosmetics junky for decades. Yes, it’s expensive but can be used as a base color, eye shadow by itself for a gorgeous soft glow, or a brow or cheek highlighter. I think you’d use it up if you use it as a base for other shadows or alone if you like a soft natural look. Very nice on older eyes whose skin is not perfectly smooth. Won’t advertise any crepey skin. I love mine!

This product looks interesting and is really only for paler skin tones. Chanel have awesome powder products so I will definitely give this a go.

Incredible. I have never seen anything like it. I don’t even really care what the actual product does, haha!

I was at a Chanel boutique, saw this…… I couldn’t say no. If you guys see this in person… Consider it a done deal…… You’ll be walking out with it. It’s a beautiful high quality highlighter- WITH THAT BEING SAID- the overspray steers you away from it cause it’s so glittery and chunky and… Just ALOT to take in. But after smashing a brush in there for a few minutes straight it’s almost all gone and you have a very nicely refined highlighting shadow and face trio- think diors Star shimmer powders and only BARELY not as refined, and the color itsself I find kind of complex and beautiful, not unique, but very pretty. I. Think that this an expensive investment, but I personally think it’s great considering it’s multi use, the color, texture, and pigmentation is very pretty and probably the biggest selling point for me is that I’ll literally never be without this, it’s a huge block of product at 13 grams. If I were you… I wouldn’t dismiss it completely and if you can- even though it’s hard- try to see it in person, it really is a great product and although even I had reservations about purchasing this at such a high price, I’m glad I have this 🙂
