No 5

Chanel No 5 Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday quad that included three varying shades of gold paired with a warmer satin-finished black. The first shade was more sparkly and likely better used as a “top coat” or with a dampened brush and/or an adhesive primer/spray to minimize fallout and improve coverage/application.

No 5 #1

No 5 #1 is a sparkling, darker gold with warm, orange undertones. It had a transparent base, so the coverage came from all of the shimmer/sparkle. I would recommend applying this over a tacky base or with a dampened brush to minimize fallout and improve adhesion to the lid (for both during application as well as during wear). It had semi-sheer to medium color payoff, which was more semi-opaque when applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush. The texture was soft, not too firmly nor too loosely-pressed into the pan, and blendable.

Possible Dupes
These are likely to be very similar shades based on our duping algorithm.

No 5 #2

No 5 #2 is a very light gold with subtle, warm undertones and a shiny, metallic finish. It looked almost wet when applied to the skin. The texture was smooth to the dense, dense and almost emollient, which helped the shimmer/sparkle adhere well without having to be applied with a dampened brush or over an adhesive base. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

No 5 #3

No 5 #3 is a bright, light white gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, while the texture was smooth, soft without being powdery, and blendable. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

No 5 #4

No 5 #4 is a medium-dark black with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a denser, almost cream-like texture, but it wasn’t too firmly-pressed into the pan nor too thick, so it picked up well with a dry brush and diffused beautifully along the edges. The eyeshadow had rich color payoff that lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Whew…dodged a bullet here because this really isn’t very exciting or interesting. And I’m not wild about the design on the shadows….looks a bit cheap, to be honest, rather than the elegant designs often pressed onto the Chanel surfaces. I’m glad this one doesn’t thrill me because of the difficulty with getting Chanel in store around here.

Chanel no 5 is legendary, it’s epic, it’s a dream. And they made this to celebrate it!?
A gold sparkling shimmer that looks like a cheap eyeshadow released for Christmas, aimed at people who will buy it for $1 to use once, and then wonder why they have gold sparkles all over their faces.
Surely they can make much better golds!
The rest of the shades are quite lovely. I also understand the chosen colours as they represent the colours of the perfume.
The embossing is boring and for me doesn’t add anything. Yes the bottle is easily recognized the 5 also, but it looks cheap to me.
I also think they should have made the packaging in the same colour way as the box, white, black around the edge and the Chanel logo in gold.
I loved the scent, I think they’ve altered it a bit, or my sense of smell is different, I liked it better years ago.
OK, going to be quiet now. Sorry for the rant! ๐Ÿ™‚
