It was a welcomed sight to see the changed formula of eyeshadow quad from Chanel (previously release in the Topkapi palette). I had hoped that this would be a permanent change to the baked eyeshadows quads, unfortunately looking at the pictures of the Spring 2013 collection, I see the normal baked formula quad in the collection for us not in America.
Harmonie du Soir (£43) contains a gold,
taupe, light pink (slightly frosty) and a cranberry/plum. All the shades
The formula of the shadows is easy to work with as they are very
blendable, have great pigment and last well. They feel soft and smooth
and the colours apply true to pan.
It terms of the overall look from the palette, I don't find the red
tones of the cranberry/plum flattering so I only use a touch of this
and whilst I like using the other three colours independently, used together I feel it looks overly shimmery (the shimmer is not the subtle shimmer I would
expect from Chanel).
I do really like this formula and do hope they use it for other
releases, but for me the colours used together are just too shimmery and
I know I won't get a lot of use from the red toned shade.
I bought this from Boots.
