I Had a Hunch I’d Take a Shine to the New Cool-Toned Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Intuition

Wearing the new Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Intuition

You know, it’s funny. A lot of people don’t know this, but M. Night made a sequel to The Sixth Sense.

Yes, it was called The Seventh Sense, and it actually went straight to video, but don’t let that fool you — it’s surprisingly good.


It stars Bruce Willis, back again as the helper/mentor character, and that same little boy, except now the boy’s an aspiring 20-something makeup artist.

In one revealing scene at a dark Nordstrom counter in a locked shopping center after regular store hours, the young man, his face as white as a sheet, turns to Bruce Willis and says, “I see glittery Chanel quads…”

Yeah…it doesn’t really work as well the second time around, but maybe that’s why the movie went straight to video. 🙂

Still, between you and me, I prefer the young man’s preternatural power in the sequel. Forget the ability to see dead people. I’d rather see Chanel.

It could be a little freaky, though, especially when I slip into one of my spells, because that’s when I have the premonitions, like the one I had the first time I saw the new $58 Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Intuition.

Sometimes I even speak in tongues…

The $58 Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Intuition, one of two new quads recently added to the permanent collection and released with the Les Expressions de Chanel collection

“Blurzzzzing murrrphhh gabbabababa boo…” which, roughly translated, means “The sheer and glittery cool-toned pink, gold, taupe and brown powder eyeshadows in this quad awaken eyes like an upbeat Hall & Oates song.”

“Fluurgig arrrghh shloooperbuer…” which is something else I might say, means “Your lids will glow like an apparition. Never mind the minor fallout from the tiny flecks of silver glitter.”

I have a hunch that if you like the new Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow in Abstraction and soft, sheer lids that glow, you may also like the Intuition quad…even though the price is frightening.

PRICE: $58
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Chanel counters and online at chanel.com
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B (pretty, but I really have to layer these shadows to achieve a bold look)

Movies, movies, everywhere

While Tabs worked on the very successful MAC Catfall campaign last weekend, I watched Daniel Craig in Skyfall (did anyone else feel like they were setting us up for a transition to a new Bond?? I really hope it wasn’t Daniel’s last one).

And at home, I’ve been working my router to the bone, streaming at least one Netflix movie a night for the past week.

I really liked The Rebound, a rom-com starring Catherine Zeta-Jones as a newly single mom who unexpectedly falls in love with a much younger man…

Great character development, and I just thought it was a very sweet story, so a big thumbs up there.

I also enjoyed Timer, another romantic comedy, but this one with a sci-fi twist.

It takes place in an alternate present where dating is made more complicated by a popular service, whereby people pay to have these “timers” implanted on their wrists that count down, somewhat miraculously, to the moment they happen to meet their soulmate. So you know exactly when you’ll find your true love.


It’s an interesting premise for a movie and pretty well done. The story follows two sisters, both of them with timers. There’s a few holes in the plot — I mean, consider the premise — but if you like sci-fi, I think it’s worth a watch.

I’m always on the market for movie recommendations, so please let me know if you’ve seen anything lately you’ve liked. I’d love to hear about it.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Onward to the hump! I hope your Tuesday was all sorts of terrific. 🙂

    Pretty, but I feel I already have similar shades in my stash. I could use that taupe color though…can’t have too many tapes!

    I really want to see Skyfall but probably will have to wait til we can Netflix it. Baby girl is a little too young for me to feel comfortable letting someone else watch her for a few hours. 😀

  2. Nicole Shrimpton says:

    Oooh I really liked Timer too !!

  3. Savannah says:

    As pretty and as Ooh- la – la Chanel is, I’m rarely wow’d by their quality. I have pigmented eyeshadows in my stash that are waaay cheaper, and probably work better. I think these high end brands should start improving their quality if they’re going to charge so much.

  4. Marla says:

    That eye shadow is gorgeous.

  5. Jen says:

    I saw Skyfall on Monday! As with any other movie, I looked it up on IMDB afterwards. 😛 Apparently Daniel Craig signed on to 2 additional Bond movies? I hope so, I really like him as Bond.
    Jen recently posted … New domain!

  6. Kim says:

    I’m still hoping to see Skyfall this week and agree with Jen above. I also read that DC is signed on for 2 more films. 🙂

  7. Those colours are pretty and look great on you!

    omg, you got a bob! so cute ;D i’ve been having one for an year and 2 months and i like it a lot(well, a dumb hairdresser messed it up this september tho…but a good one retouched it and it’s almost as i want it to be now-gotta go cut it in the back again tho)

    i like the rebound 😀
    the other one looks cool
    i wanna see skyfall too but idk if i will be able to go.

  11. I want that Quad so badly. Love that the yellow is more golden than yellow. I have a bit of an addiction to Chanel Eye Quads.

    I’m headed over to Chanel today or tomorrow for mascara, but this probably wouldn’t be my choice for eyeshadow! Pretty, but a shame it was a bit sheer.

    I went to see Looper (starring the dreamy Joseph Gordon-Levitt) last week with a girlfriend. A bit violent, and it screws with your mind a bit, but it was good. I’ll probably go see Twilight this weekend, because I’m invested in the series, but I’m expecting it to be bad (although I read an article that during a stunt, RPattz almost tore his glute, and a physio had to massage his bum all day – why isn’t that my job??)
