CHANEL Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow: A quick review

CHANEL Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow: A quick review

What it is: A four-colour eyeshadow palette from the luxe French brand (that we all know and love!) CHANEL.

Beauty bonus: The black lacquer case featuring the iconic double Cs is sure to make it into one or two of your upcoming Instagram flatlays.

Beauty bummer: Those who like lots of shade options in their eyeshadow palettes may find four hues too limited.

Overall: These eyeshadows are a true treat. From the exterior packaging to the pressed powder formulas inside, we love the luxurious feel of these compacts.

The individual eyeshadow pots are small, which we're admittedly fine with as it means you might actually use up these formulas rather than have to toss them over time.

This particular colour collection, dubbed 354 - Warm Memories, offers a selection of nice, neutral hues that are just a little bit unexpected (think a steely brown and a soft, peachy pink). We found they gave lids a nice wash of colour when worn alone, while a primer yielded a more powerful pop.

But, if we're being entirely honest, we're not looking for full-impact makeup with these palettes. Instead, we want that perfectly lived-in look that French beauty gurus seem to achieve so effortlessly.

As for bold pops of colour, we'll save that for our lips (ahem, hello Parisian-approved red lipstick!).

Would recommend: Yes
