Chanel Rêve d'Orient Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Rêve d’Orient Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Rêve d’Orient Eyeshadow Quad ($70.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition Quad that will be available on chanel.com on December 1st. As a bonus, any orders with the Quad will get complimentary overnight shipping (and therein is the Cyber Monday deal for ya!). The formula of the quad seemed similar to the recent Tisse series quads that Chanel released a few months ago, but these do have a raised star pattern on each shade (otherwise, it doesn’t seem different). All four shades performed well with nice pigmentation, soft, blendable textures, and long-wear (eight to nine hours). They can be used wet or dry, though I don’t think it’s necessary to use them damp to get good performance out of them, but applying the shades with a dampened brush gives a slightly more intense look and a smoother, less frosted (more metallic) finish. You may find that you can easily dupe this with shades you already own, though, as there was no shortage of dupe options for the shades in this quad.

Rêve d’Orient #1 is described as a “luminous brown.” It’s a medium-dark, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly finish–a little more sheen than satin but not a frost. It had excellent pigmentation applied wet or dry, though the drier application was a touch richer with less product. It wore well for nine hours on me. Tarte Bastille in the Night (LE) is darker, cooler-toned. Tarte Too Haute to Handle (LE) is lighter. Guerlain Petrouchka #5 (LE) is darker. Make Up For Ever S616 Chocolate (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, yellower. Make Up For Ever I606 Pinky Earth (P, $21.00) is redder. Kat Von D Papilio (P) is similar. MAC Pink Sensibilities #4 (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned. Clarins The Essentials #7 (LE) is redder. Too Faced Brown Sugar (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. Too Faced Chestnut (LE, $16.00) is warmer. MAC Her Cocoa #4 (LE, $15.00) is redder. MAC Divine Decadence (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, warmer. MAC Friendly (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Sable (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker. Chanel Intuition #4 (P) is similar. Inglot #421 (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Rêve d’Orient #2 is described as a “glimmering beige.” It’s a brightened, white gold with warm, ivory undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. Applied dry, it was semi-opaque with a more frosted finish, whereas when I applied it to the skin with a dampened brush, it had a smoother, more metallic finish. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly. MAC Just Gleaming (LE, $19.50) is less warm-toned. Guerlain Petrouchka #1 (LE) is darker. LORAC Cashmere (LE) is darker. LORAC Sand (LE) is darker. LORAC Opal (LE) is similar. Hello Kitty Bright (LE) is similar. MAC Amberluxe #1 (P) is similar. Make Up For Ever I414 Yellow Ivory (P, $21.00) is brighter. Make Up For Ever D416 Crystalline Yellow (P, $21.00) is warmer. Chanel Tisse Gabrielle #2 (P) is warmer. YSL Saharienne #2 (P) is less shimmery. Too Faced Snowflakes (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Disney by Sephora Charming (LE) is similar. Disney by Sephora Sea Shells (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Rêve d’Orient #3 is described as a “rich gold.” It’s a brightened, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff both wet and dry, but the wet application made it appear slightly darker and richer. This shade started to fade after eight hours of wear. Kat Von D Brass Knuckles (LE) is lighter. Guerlain Petrouchka #2 (LE) is warmer. Gucci Beauty Antique Gold (P, $37.00) is lighter. Ardency Inn Sunday (P, $21.00) is warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE) is brighter. Divergent Golden Honesty (LE) is warmer, lighter. MAC Golden Hours #3 (LE, $21.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Strike (LE, $18.00) is darker. Too Faced Instigator (LE, $16.00) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #5 (P) is darker. Urban Decay Blitz (LE, $18.00) is cooler-toned, darker. L’Oreal Gold Imperial (LE, $7.99) is similar. Chanel Topkapi #4 (LE) is similar. bareMinerals Remix (LE) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Rêve d’Orient #4 is described as a “deep black.” It’s a rich, dark black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented both wet and dry, though it is a bit smoother and looks inkier in person when applied damp. Thankfully, it is incredibly blendable with a silky, finely-milled texture. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me. Make Up For Ever S102 Onyx (P, $21.00) is similar. NARS Sycorax (P, $29.00) is softer. Chanel Jardin Zen #4 (LE) is warmer. MAC Smokeluxe #5 (P) is similar. MAC Bleuluxe #5 (P) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

They’re both warm toned quads with a black eyeshadow, but Chanel has a white gold vs. peachy beige and gold vs. taupe brown. The brown/black shades are more similar, but the other two are more different.

I’m not sure – the information I get is just for U.S. It’s pretty rare I get any info from brands for international locations (I ask but because I’m based in the U.S., it is usually an unsuccessful request).

Hi

Do you know if this quad will be available elsewhere? Chanel won’t ship this to Canada or accept Canadian credit cards if shipped to a US address.

THanks

btw…your skin is looking flawless lately!

OMG, you’re killing me with all these gorgeous kits!!! This totally reminds me of the Charlotte Tillbury one, sooo pretty, but so expensive. Until I win the lotto, maybe I can just stamp some stars on my dupes to make myself feel a little better

There are some similarities! Crazy how two brands can come out with similar products at the same time – impossible to know who came up with it first (since they’re usually planned a year or more in advance).

Wow, I thought the same as everyone else: This is so similar to the Charlotte Tilbury quad. Still very pretty. I like the white gold shade for a highlighter.

Why does this have to be good? Why can’t it be crummy? My list of pricey quads that I totally don’t need just keeps growing and growing. And the pretty stars remind me of one of my favourite quads – Dior’s Bonne Etoile (everyone seems to be copying the stars motif lately!). Sigh….

Yes, they do look similar (this and the CT quad). I guess stars are a big trend this Holiday. They both got the marketing right on this one though. The quads are visually beautiful and the fact that are both neutrals helps make them appealing to more people. I’m tempted that’s for sure. 🙂

WOW! I’m definitely starry eyed looking at this one! (Couldnt help myself :))) ). Dupeable colours, not so dupeable packaging and presentation..its pretty gorgeous!! Happy Thanksgiving:)

Stars, stars, stars!! //mad cackling

PS: Happy Thanksgiving weekend, Christine! Hope you’ll get to see lots of your family before it’s over <3
