Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow Tisse Mademoiselle 214 Review, Tutorial and FOTD

June 26, 2014

This is a more detailed review for the new reformulated Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Tisse Mademoiselle 214 (see this post for general review). I have been playing with this quad for several days, and I absolutely love it. It is such a unique and subtle neutral quad with complex undertones. I’d like to emphasize again that the reformulated eye shadows are extremely creamy – certainly the creamiest powder eye shadows I have ever owned and you can almost apply them with your fingers for a wash of color. For precise application it is best to use brushes that tend to pick up more pigments. All shades go on very smooth and they adhere nicely to the skin without aging the eyes, and that’s what differs a good quality high-end eye shadow to the drugstore brands.


Except for the darkest shade in the quad, the rest of the shades are very neutral and quite light so you might not like this if you are into bold colors. The shades might only serve you as a wash of color if you have medium to dark skin tone. As for me they work really well together for illuminating as well as adding some depth. As you can see from the below swatch, the colors show up differently depending on the angles. They can pull slightly muddy on yellow toned skin because of the tinge of olive undertone, so I like to prep my eye lids with foundation first.


In the below tutorial, I also included the new Chanel Stylo Yeux in Marron Glace 906 , which is  a lovely shimmery dark brown color. Other products used include the Chanel Cream Blush Intonation, and Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Nectar (absolutely love this one!).

Hey Reika! This is such a pretty look! like the perfect everyday look I strive for! I really like the lip gloss on you! definitely trying some Bobbi Brown soon!

Looking fabulous as always, Reika! I love the light wash on the eyes, yet with some depth added! Your technique is perfect! I for myself, mostly skip lining my lower lashline, as I feel it makes me look super fierce. But I should get myself some good pencil liners again in order to just line the outer parts! Hope this technique works on my eye… 🙂
