If you would, please direct your attention away from my hair for a moment (I know, it’s CRAY, but I just couldn’t deal with it this morning), and kindly observe my lids.
Don’t they look glossy and glowing in the best possible way? I think so.
That’s Chanel for ya.
Yeah, their eyeshadow quads are crazy expensive ($61, HOLY CANNOLI), but nobody does glossy glow like Chanel.
Well…Tom Ford gets pretty close with Nude Dip and Honeymoon, but they’re $82! In comparison, $61 for Chanel is practically a steal (at least that’s what I tell myself).
Behold the new Les Ombres Multi-Effect Eyeshadow Quad in 278 Codes Subtils, and brace yourself for all the lusty eyeshadow thoughts.
ALL. OFF. THEM. 🙂
Limited edition… Why?
It’s really annoying that this quad is limited edition (it’s part of the Chanel 2017 Spring collection). I wish it was permanent, because all of the colors — the pale seashell pink, golden taupe, golden brown and khaki taupe — go SO WELL with the pink, nude and coral lip colors I love to wear in spring and summer.
A fabulous finish
All of the shades have varying levels of age-appropriate shimmer and almost look like wet gloss. And they’re absolutely perfect for mature lids. This kind of glow won’t age you.
Easy-to-blend, potent pigments
I don’t know how or why (it might be a miracle), but I don’t think you really even need to know what you’re doing with these because, despite them being highly pigmented, they also have a blurring effect that makes blending them drama-free. You can practically swipe your tapered eye brush back and forth a few times, and forget about it.
What’s the verdict?
Absolutely beautiful. I love it. This quad will be getting a workout on my lids this spring and summer. If you want to check it out, it’s available now.
Is it spring yet…?
We’re only halfway through January, and I’m already thinking about spring!
I snapped this picture right down the street a few years ago. It’s of my favorite tree in the neighborhood, a lovely cherry blossom that blooms like this every year.
I love this tree…
Am I the only person who has favorite trees? LOL!
