Warm Memories (354)

Chanel Warm Memories (354) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, mauve and plum-leaning quad that had a pop of orange. Three of the four shades had some shimmer to them, but the orange was the only true shimmer in the quad. At a glance, there seemed to be a decent range of depth, but I found that the first three shades clustered together and resulted in a muddier look in practice. The formula seemed to run slightly thinner and was more prone to sheering out, so I’d recommend wearing a primer with this to ensure longevity.

Warm Memories #1

Warm Memories #1 is a medium, rosy mauve with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage, but it had a faded quality to it when applied so it never looked true-to-pan in color. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and blendable but was prone to sheering out a bit. It wore well for seven hours before I noticed fading.

Warm Memories #2

Warm Memories #2 is a soft, rosy mauve with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was incredibly silky to the touch and seemed very finely-milled, but it was prone to sheering out and was thinner than I expected, which tends to result in poor performance–which was true of this shade. It had good coverage but sheered out to more semi-sheer coverage once blended (without that being the goal!). It lasted well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Warm Memories #3

Warm Memories #3 is a muted, medium plum with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation but it applied somewhat lighter than it appeared in the pan, and the quad could have benefited from greater contrast to differentiate this shade from the first two. The texture was soft, slightly thin and dusty in the pan, but it blended out with ease. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Warm Memories #4

Warm Memories #4 is a light-medium orange with subtle, warm undertones and fine pink and gold shimmer throughout. The texture was smooth to the touch, not at all powdery nor too firmly pressed into the pan, but it seemed denser than most of the shades I’ve tried in this formula. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily. It wore nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

If there were a little more differentiation with the three mauves, this would have been beautiful. The orange pop is a fun touch for spring.

Love the color pairing in this quad, but at a B grade for Chanel, this is an easy no-go for me. I have Modern Ren and other similar shades of higher quality than this.

An easy pass for me! I am covered by these shades with the ND Sunrise palette, & that one looks like much better performing palette . Thanks for the review Christine, as I had my eye on this quad, for travel, but not worth it, after all.

It’s a sad day when brands like SG and CP have dupes that are way, way better in quality than Chanel -I think they need to look at the competition.

I have this quad, and with my usual brushes (Wayne Goss and MAC – the older natural bristle ones) – it did apply very sheer. I then watched a tutorial where the person used the Chanel dual ended travel brushes, and it looked pretty good. I happen to have those – they are really dense and a bit stiffer than most brushes – it applied pretty opaque then, and you can see a bit more difference in the shades. I like it OK – but I don’t think this is a must-have if you already have similar shades – you really need to use specific brushes to get it to work right.

Hi Elizabeth, I read Christine’s review and you comment about the brush(es) used with great interest as I wore Warm Memories yesterday and I had no problem with shadows underperforming. I liked that I could build up shade #2 but it wasn’t sheer at all using a Smith 235 brush, a natural hair dense yet flexible brush. When I used MAC 217 today, it was like I was using a different power – thin, patchy, etc. A Sonia G Worker Pro wasn’t much better yet the Sonia G Crease Pro worked fine as did a Wayne Goss 06. Thanks for your insight on what made a difference in application. Because I used Smith brushes yesterday, I had no problem with any shade, so your post piqued my curiosity!

I wasn’t planning on buying this quad but decided to pre-order it when I saw it in person. I adore it. I didn’t have underperforming shades, nor did the three mauve shades look muddy worn together (though I can see the potential). I wondered if my palette might have a different formula as I bought it in Canada. Upon reading Elizabeth’s comment about the type of brush used, I now think I happened to use Smith brushes 235 and 220 brush, and they allowed for opaque application for shades 1 and 3 and buildable application for shade 2, which I liked. I applied shade 4 with my finger as an accent shade. What stuns me about this palette is how beautiful the shadows look applied one over another and how pretty they are individually on the eye. I couldn’t stop looking at my eye makeup yesterday, and my application is pretty basic. It must be in the formula. This has quickly become one my favourite Chanel quads.

I love this quad and always get a complement when I use it. Not sure about the brush thing as some people here said. However, it happens, that I only use Chanel’s duo end brushes. (?) I look bad on cool tones eyeshadow, but this one, besides being mauve and plum, it is warm enough for my olive skin tone.
