Hello beautiful people of the world! Sorry it took me so long to post this review. We just got back in town from our family vacation in San Diego. I’m also currently editing our videos from our trip and will post that on the blog and in YouTube SOON. It’s a Chanel Spring day today. Well, it’s not officially spring yet in my neck of the woods. But seeing longer days with daily lows at 40F, makes me look forward to my favorite season of the year. I feature today the new Chanel Tisse Beverly Hills eyeshadow and Chanel Perles Et Fantaisies. I bet you are all curious on how these two perform on brown skin. I’m pretty sure at the end of this post you’ll experience two things: surprised and disappointed.
Chanel 262 Tisse Beverly Hills Les 4 Ombres Quad is a surprisingly odd combination from the brand. It’s like Chanel is channeling their inner “indie” makeup vibe. I’m not too impressed with the overall performance of this quad. I picked this up with the hopes of longer wear and intense pigment. The colors all average 4 hours of wear. That’s below average as compared to my other Chanel quads. The top left shade appears as a satin iridescent lilac. This is the most difficult shade to blend when worn wet or when using a flat shader brush. Using your fingers works like a charm on this one. I just use this shade as an inner eye corner highlight and on my inner lower lash lines. The top right shade is actually my favorite and the best performing of them all. It appears as a satin creamy almost buff beige. I use this mainly as a brow bone highlight. The lower left shade appears as a satin peacock blue. It’s actually a beautiful color on my brown skin but just too difficult to apply and blend. You need to layer this shade up to 9 times to show up and leaves horrendous amounts of fall outs. I use this as my main lid color. The lower right shade appears as a satin blackened plum. This is a drier consistency as compared with the rest but not as difficult as the blue one. I use this on my outer corner V and outer lower lash lines.
Chanel Perles Et Fantaisies is packaged impressively. Don’t let the beauty of it deceive you since it got quite a hefty price tag. Most limited edition highlighters or blushes from Chanel were priced about the same. It appears on my brown skin as a cool pearly carnation pink when both shades are mixed together. You can either wear the pearl shade on the left as a highlighter and the pink on the right as a blush. I just used both of them together as a highlighting blush. I didn’t wear this on my t-zones since it will definitely make me look washed out because of the cool pale pink in it. It lasted for almost 7.5 hours of wear. It is very pigmented but feels slightly dry. I was also able to wear the pink shade as a main lid color and it just looks amazing on brown skin. Love, love, love how intricate the embossed pearl pattern on the pan.
The Bottom Line:
If budget is scarce, you can definitely skip both of these without feeling guilty. These two are meant collecting for avid fans of the brand. Definitely skip the Chanel Tisse Beverly Hills quad, not worth the $61 you’ve spent. I personally love the Chanel Perles et Fantaisies. I don’t own anything like it so, no dupes in this post. It’s worth keeping and an excellent addition to my growing collection. Speaking of collection, I just filled my 5-shelf 42×30 inch dresser with makeup. I’m currently in the look out to get a new one. Now the question is, where should I place a new “makeup” dresser. I still do have several lipsticks which just got launched this spring and will soon get featured on the blog. So stay tune everyone. Until next time…
