Chanel Les 4 Ombres 226 Tissé Rivoli
Tissé Rivoli is well-balanced assortments of taupe and brown.
The top two shades lean cool while the bottom colors are more reddish and warm.
You can easily create soft smoky eyes with different tones or just use each colors to define.
As you see, the metallic taupe (top left) is most pigmented and darkest, which is surprising. This is a gorgeous gorgeous taupe that is quite unique. Love!
The pinkish ivory and coppery beige have the luscious satin finish.
The dark brown is virtually matte and least pigmented.
I used dry sponge tip applicator with very light strokes for these swatches, so you can see all the colors are well pigmented with great textures.
I tried a very simple look using the bottom two shades here.
All shades were applied dry (I don't really wet my eyeshadows) over primer.
Overall look with Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tissé Rivoli
(Also wearing Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Viva here. A preview of my default makeup look for fall.)
I have two U.S. quadras and one old euro one. To me, each has its own merits and one is not necessarily superior to others.
For example, the old baked formula is best to layer with cream base eyeshadow providing the signature sheen that is quite beautiful (although I know many hate the euro baked formulas). If you like instant gratifications from color payoffs and smooth texture, the U.S. quadra is the one for you. The new multi effect palette seems to be a happy medium of the Chanel's two previous offerings, and it is the most versatile and easiest one to use.
Have you tried the new Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tissé collection?
Any favorites and thoughts?
Wish everyone a happy weekend! :)
