Chanel Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow palette in # 202 Tissé Camélia

Chanel Tisse Camelia #202 eyeshadow quad

Earlier this year Chanel released eight brand new, reformulated eyeshadow quads. Inspired by the famous Chanel tweed, they feature sophisticated, easy to wear shades. The colours are available in matte, iridescent, and metallic finishes.

There was a lot of debate in the beauty world regarding the baked formula of the old (now discontinued) palettes and their pigmentation. I was among those who weren’t the biggest fans of the old ones and I much preferred the US version with the unbaked powder formula. When the news about new quads came out I was very impatient to get my hands on them. I’ve managed to restrain myself and buy only one palette to try it out. I chose # 202 Tissé Camélia as it has the perfect combination of colours for a daytime look, and a deep dark colour for a smokey eye. I’ve been testing it for the last three weeks, I didn’t want to rush the review before I give it a proper run. So finally, here are my thoughts.

The palette has the similar packaging as the old eyeshadows. It comes in a box and a velvet pouch and with a leaflet containing suggestions how to apply the shades included in the palette to achieve different looks. It contains 2gr of talc-free product.

All shades in Tissé Camélia palette are soft and creamy, easy to blend and build up. They don’t smudge into one shade when blended, as some eyeshadows do when they are too soft, and for that reason I find them very easy to work with. I love applying them all over the lid with my finger tips and then building up with a little sponge applicators that came with the palette. Standard eyeshadow brushes also work with these, so it’s really up to your personal preference as to which one to use. The staying power is excellent – I’ve experienced only very light creasing after more than 8 hours of wear.

The palette has a neutral colour range, suitable for majority of skin tones and eye colours. All the shades have a subtle micro-shimmer that works to deliver the satiny-pearl finish, while not looking glittery on the eyes. I love how Chanel does shimmer, it’s never over the top.

^ Top left – my favourite shade in this palette, it’s a mid-tone lavender taupe with a satin finish. This is such a gorgeous colour, perfect for all over the lid or crease.

Top right – white with a pearl finish and light grey undertone. Soft, creamy formula makes it perfect for a highlight under the eyebrows and in the inner corner of the eyes, but I also find it looks very glamourous all over the lid paired with an eyeliner. It could be blended for a subtle glow, or build up for full coverage.

Bottom left – soft peachy pink with a satin to pearl finish.

Bottom right – darkest shade of the palette, deep purple-brown with a satin finish.

Overall, judging by this palette, Chanel has done a beautiful job with the reformulation of their Les 4 Ombres palettes. They are much more pigmented then previously and easier to work with. Tissé Camélia won me over completely, I can get so many combinations just out of this one palette that I kept reaching for it almost every day over the last three weeks. I even prefer the new formula over the US one (comparison swatches here). I highly recommend you check out Tissé Camélia, it’s a little gem.

  1. Prelepe boje! I meni se najvise dopada ova gore levo ! kakva je tekstura u odnosu na us palete ili recimo u odnosu na duo senke?

    1. Napravicu poredjenje sa Prelude, islikala sam vec ali mi nisu dobro ispale slike pa cu ponovo. Ovi kvadovi imaju nekako kremastu formulu, slicno Nars MM, skoro pa krem pod prstom. US formula je “obican” powder, pored ovih novih izgledaju mat. Pink nijansa u Tisse Camelia je slicna pink nijansi iz prolecnog dua. Od svih njihovih senki koje imam ovaj quad mi je najkvalitetniji – po teksturi, pigmentaciji isl. Mislim da bi ti se dopala formula.

  2. Jao boje su prelepe, čak bi mogla da ih proglasim mojima :)
    Jako mi se dopada što je formula dobra, obično su me kvadovi odbijali zbog toga

  3. Prelepe su boje. Znam da je reformulacija u pitanju, ali ja i dalje imam veliki odboj prema CH quad-ovima :( Ali da su lepe, jesu lepe.
    PS: Naredni put slikaj to lepo oko i sa podignutim kapkom ;)

  4. Da se upisem i ja kod tebe :)

    Mnogo mi je drago sto si pokrenula blog :)

    Quad je mnogo lep, ja nisam imala prilike da koristim nista od Chanel-a do sada
    Jako si lepo boje ukombinovala na kapku
    Da li bi preporucila CH senke za kupovinu nekome ko tek pocinje da kupuje HE ili pre neki drugi brend?
    Inace planiram da uzmem UD naked basic i mozda Nude Tude od The Balm-a

    1. Hej Hazelnut! :) Od HE senki koje su kod nas dostupne probala sam jos Dior i Guerlain i nisam nesto bila odusevljena. Mada su Dior palete dosta hvaljene, kombinacije boja mi nikad nisu po meri. Ove nove CH su odlicne jer su nosive i lako uklopive nijanse, ako ne racunam 2 ili 3 koje imaju nijanse sa vise glitera. Preporucila bih ti da pogledas Tisse Camelia, Tisse Venitien i recimo Tisse Rivoli. Izuzetne su sve tri, pa odluci u zavisnosi od toga sta volis od boja i sta vise nosis.

      Naked Basic nemam, ali posto je ona mat nece ti biti visak pored neke od Ch paleta. :)

  5. Pogledacu te tri, hvala na iscrpnom odgovoru :) Jos nisam nacisto sta bih uzela od finisa i boja, al volim da imam inf unapred pa kad budem pri parama i odlucim se, da imam neki plan sta i kako :)

    1. Mnogo je bolje tako, krenes sa nekim planom umesto da se rasplines na sto strana (kao neki ovde *ja* jel’) :))

      Tisse Camelia je univerzalna, ne mogu da zamislim da nekom ne stoji. Bez obzira na ten, boju ociju isl. Rivoli je toplija, a Venitien hladnija ali opet ne ekstremno pa mislim da su sve tri nosive. Mislim da su stigle kod nas pa vec sad mozes da probas. Ako ti se dopadnu sacekaj neki od popusta. I javi utiske!! x

    1. Da ona mi je sledeca na spisku, mada ona zeleno siva nijansa nisam sigurna da ce mi stajati. Ali ostale nijanse su divne. Nikako ne mogu da zapamtim koja je od toplih pateta sljokicava, da li Rivoli ili Mademoiselle. Ali tu sljokicavu bih zaobisla jer je najsvetlija nijansa samo gliter.

      Jesi ih probala? Znam da su stigle kod vas.

  6. Rivoli mi je na fazon ove palete,sve 4 nosive i uklopljive boje. Dobije se onaj saten finish. Barem je moj utisak takav. Za kestenjaste oci divan. Super post Liv,svidja mi se kako si se nasminkala. Cameliu kupujem,divne su boje!

  7. Evo me ponovo :) . Vec dva dana koristim Cameliu. Moj utisak je da na moje kestenjaste oci nisam dobila wow efekat(mislim na osnovu boje palete). Donja-levo nijansa bi mogla biti jos malo pigmentovanija, stvarno je prelepa pinkic-kajsijica sa diskretnim simerom koji se nazire pod odredjenim uglom. Postojanost boja je cista desetka. Super su im ovi novi kvadovi! Ostaje mi da jos istrazujem kombinovanje Camelie;)
    xo

    1. Moje oci su braon, vuku na zeleno na suncu. Pre neki dan sam bas tu pink stavljala preko celog kapka i deluje da se skroz stopi sa tenom, ali na dnevnom svetlu, narocito suncu se itekako vidi. Ima malo duohrom efekat. gornja levo mi je omiljena nijansa iz te palete, uz belu u uglu oka i najtamniju u spoljnom uglu. Ta tamna je fenomenalna i za smokey eye, jer nije skroz mat. Igraj se, nadam se da ces naci kombinaciju koja ti odgovara. :)

  8. Mozda nisam dala sansu paleti jer se ovih dana spremam u haosu a s druge strane nestrpljiva sam kad kupim nesto novo od sminke ! Ah prokleto zensko :D
