Chanel Quatuor Boutons De Chanel Yeux Eyes

I hoped that my local Nordstrom has a least some testers for Anniversary Beauty Exclusives so I couldn't wait to check it out. I hope my swatches will be helpful for you decision to buy or not to buy.

Les Naturels Dores De Chanel includes the quad eyeshadow palette and two nail polishes (one exclusive is #440 Gold Lame) and 2 mascaras (one exclusive is Inimitable Intense Rouge Noir which is burgundy/plum). Also Coco Mademoiselle set is available for Nordstrom sale.

Pictures of the quad was taken inside of store so it's artificial light but colors look true enough.

The quad is really nice. Very nice colors and textures. Shadows are very sheer so I did wet swatches to show up colors better. Even it's not first reincarnation of this palette (it was duty free exclusive for some Asian Airlines last year) it's cool anyway.

Those first 3 swatches were taken just outside with full sun. You can see it has some shimmer and looks really nice. I would describe colors as off white, peach, taupe and warm bronze.

Last swatch was taken when I came back at home. Camera is different (that's Canon EOS20D) and sun was hidden behind clouds. So you can see colors under different light condition to get more accurate idea.

I pre-ordered one palette for my friend and I didn't decide yet if I need it myself because I have a lot nude eyeshadows already. But if I didn't have I would definitely buy it now. Chanel rep said that it's almost sold out already so don't wait if you want it. What do you think?


  1. The colors look pretty but easily dupable

  2. Twister, Yes, that's what stops me from buying. I have million nudes eyeshadows.
