CHANEL Les 4 Ombres in #29 Lagons (LE L’Ame d’un Regard Collection, Spring 2011)
February 26, 2011 4 Comments
As I’ve posted yesterday, Chanel has launched another spring collection along with Les Perles de Chanel collection. I’ve prepared several swatches. Please, note that this review will be based only on the testing I did at the counter, so I won’t rate the product. I also cannot say anything about staying power, since I didn’t wear it long enough.
I’ve tried Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow quad in the shade Lagons. The product contains 1,2 grams of eyeshadow (European version) and it retails for 47 euros.
Lagons contains these shades: light baby blue, medium dark greyish blue, dark royal blue and medium dark baby blue. I’ve swatched the European version. The three lighter shade have a very tiny silvery microshimmer and the darkest shade (royal blue) has a bigger blue shimmer particles.
The texture of the eyeshadows is very silky and smooth. The pigmentation is average – on the swatch I applied three coats. Whan I’ve applied the first coat, it went patchy and uneven. You have to blend it, but the eyeshadow will look very sheer. For more intensity, you have to apply second layer, blend it and then apply more if you’d like even more intensity. The two shades on the right were the easiest to apply, the top left shade was a little chalky. Although the bottom left shade is gorgeous (I think it is the prettiest shade in the quad), it doesn’ t apply evenly.
Overall, if you are into blue shades and you like Chanel quads, this quad might be worth purchasing.
