Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow from the Spring 2013 Precieux de Printemps de Chanel Collection (Ombres à Paupières Quatuor, $58) may not rev you when you first see it. I have to admit that my first reaction was, "Oh, how nice - four more neutrals - interesting selections for spring." It was only when I started to play with the colors that I realized the genius of Raffinement. These four shades are gorgeous.
The sun finally graced us again, and I was able to get swatch photos. I applied all four shades heavily with a sponge-tipped applicator and swatched in clockwise order, starting at the top left. Three of the shades left me over the moon. The fourth plays nicely with the others.
I purchased mine at Saks Fifth Avenue Chevy Chase. The Spring 2013 Precieux de Printemps de Chanel Collection is slowly making its way to other stores, such as Nordstrom. You'll want to check it out before the items start to sell out.
