Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tissé Camelia

My second quad from the newly reformulated range, Tisse Camelia (£40) contains a shimmery medium mauve taupe, shimmery white, iridescent peachy pink and satin finish deep cool brown.



The colours work extremely well together and its more of a cooler overall look. Actually I am finding that too much coolness doesn't actually suit me so in hindsight I'd probably been best to skip this one, but it really is a classic combination of shades with a good variation in intensity so you can go for a soft look or full on drama.

 
Texture wise, whilst this is much improved in terms of pigment, smoothness and blendability compared to the baked formula, I don't find this quad quite as smooth/soft to the touch as the shades in Tissé Mademoiselle (reviewed here). I am being pernickety and it doesn't affect application but I thought worth mentioning.

I bought this from Boots.

  1. These colours are really pretty. I recently swatched these and now I am lusting after pretty much all of them! The texture feels so much smoother and nicer then their previous eyeshadows.

    1. Its such an improvement isn't it, I wonder if they will change the singles and duos as all three options seem to have a different formula.

  2. This one is really a beauty but I'm still hesitating because of that white. It's just, you know, so white! :)

    1. Yep, I agree, its close to being too stark a white, in some ways would have been better had it been less pigmented, best use in the inner corner or a dab on the centre lid I think.

  7. Glad to hear that there's an improvement of the formula in their new eyeshadow. I have not checked any of the new formula yet, and hopefully I'll be sold :)
