I did a little happy dance when it arrived. If my back weren't in such bad shape, I might have done a leap toward the sky, kicking my heels together. This palette is magnificent. I wondered out loud recently about a Dior palette I thought might be similar. It's not; this one's much prettier (in my not-so-humble opinion).
The aqua shade is a knock-out and contrasts beautifully with the icy blue next to it. The indigo blue is sheer and sultry. The counterpoint to the blues and greens is a subtle gold.
The shades are as sheer as a butterfly's wings, so I had to swatch heavily. I used my usual sponge-tipped applicators and took my photos in full, late-morning sun.
The icy blue works beautifully with either the aqua or the indigo swatched below it. All three together? Magic! My photos show a very heavy swatch of the indigo blue. It is sheer and applies sheerly with a brush. I layered it to ensure even color in my photos.
I can't wait for the perfect day and perfect outfit to wear Métamorphose. Given the late turn of the weather toward spring, that should be soon.
You can purchase Chanel Métamorphose Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow, along with the rest of the summer colors, at Chanel's Web site.
