Chanel Lumières Facettes Quadra Eye Shadow in Quadrille from the Notes du Printemps Collection for Spring 2014
I swatched all four shades with a sponge-tipped applicator and took photos in full, late-morning sun. I started at the top left with the mauve shade at the top of my arm and worked clockwise until I finished with the peach.
I like this quad. I am anxious to hear your reactions. I know some will not find it distinctive, while others will appreciate the unique divergence from a formula.
I purchased mine at Neiman Marcus. I'm sure it will be available at all Chanel counters, as well as online. I do not see it at Chanel's Web site yet.
There are two Chanel Illusion d’Ombré in the collection: Impulsion (way too pink) and Diapason, a violet-plum brown that is too red for me. Both of them are out of my comfort zone, so I purchased neither. There is also a duo on the display: nice, but not heart-revving. This was my only eye purchase. I need to go back and look at the eyeliners.
