I have Chanel Raffinement to show to you today! I bought this eyeshadow quad from Saks.com Jacqueline from Mybeautyhoard was so kind arrange orders from me, Joy from LookNookHook, Ruby from Miaka-Mylife and Luna from Lunalunaface so that we can share the shipping cost Jacqueline has posted about our haul in her blog here.
I am sure most of you have read the review of this product since early this year when it was first released. When I saw the swatches online, I know I had to get this one but only in US version. I have swatched this quad at the counter and as usual the Asian/Euro baked version does not feel as smooth as the US version. I am glad that finally I own Raffinement in US version.
I won’t be talking much about the packaging as the packaging looks the same like other Chanel eyeshadow quad. It comes with a velvety pouch and two mini sponges.
The texture is so smooth; it glides on nicely when I swatch it. I see some fallout on the champagne color but the rest of the shades are fine. The pigmentation of this quad is fine; it’s not sheer and it’s not overly pigmented too. I think the pigmentation level is suitable for people who wants both soft eye look or even a heavy smokey eye as the color is buildable.
All the shades in this quad is very wearable. On the top lest is a taupe with a frost shimmer. On the bottom left is a frosty champagne; I foresee that I would use this shade as a base a lot.On the top right is a cream with a heavier frost and on the bottom left is a dark brown with frost sheen.
The Eye Look:
I am a happy girl to own this quad. This quad has wearable shades which can be worn day for day and night look. The texture is lovely and it’s up to my expectation of a Chanel quad! Yayness
