Chanel Summer 2011 Lilium Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad Review and Swatches
Chanel launches eyeshadow quads with many new releases and this summer's collection is no exception. The quad, named Lilium, contains a fabulous deep green in a cool toned emerald color, a lightly shimmery taupe, a lightly shimmering pale yellowy-green, and a very shimmery light pink. The quad is somewhat brighter in color than my picture would lead you to believe. My screen is showing the light green as somewhat sandy, which it is not, and is showing the taupe a little darker than it is.
The following is a picture with my iphone, which is more accurate with the greens, while showing the taupe a little darker than it really is. The pink is accurate in the digi cam photo above, and washed out in the iphone photo. Because of the different ways the cameras auto-adjust colors, neither could get all four colors accurately, hence the two different cameras used.
I picked this quad to purchase because of the variety of colors and how well they'll work together. It's a different type of combination than many of the quads lately.
Here's some pictures on my skin, in different lighting, the second picture showing the new waterproof eyeliner as well!
The following picture is more of a closeup to show the shimmery quality of the pink color. It's going to be fabulous for highlighting at the browline and also in the inner most corner of the eye. You'll see the nearly lime light yellow green to the right.
The following picture shows the taupe and the green a little better by themselves. Even tho it's fuzzy, the colors show fairly well:
Here's a final look at the quad. I love how this photo shows the pink. This quad retails in the US for $57 dollars everywhere Chanel is sold. (I purchased mine at Nordstrom.)
