Poèsie - Chanel Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow

Another nice neutral palette from Chanel. Very nice actually.  I love it.  You've probably read lots about Chanel's new formulas by now. Chanel describes Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Chanel describes as

  "an expanded shade wardrobe of vibrant, versatile palettes for elegant eyes. Each easy-to-wear compact offers endless possibilities, with two medium tones to colour and contour, a deep shadow to intensify and a light shade to highlight."

Poèsie, however, has two pinkish light shades - one warm, the other cool - a medium taupe, and deep maroon/plum shade. Nothing here that would work as a contour shade, at least not on me. Perhaps this difference is why it's limited edition. Still, it is a beautiful quad. The new formula's texture is similar to Topkapi and Harmonie du Soir, only slightly less creamy. The shadows are deeply pigmented. They apply true to the pan even on my NC43-45 skin tone. They are more durable than the old quads, lasting 12 hours without a primer and showing only the slightest bit of fading. And no creasing.

 If you swipe these on with a brush you'll get quite a bit of fall out, so try patting them instead. Better still, use the velour applicators that come with. They pick up quite a bit of product and distribute evenly with no fall out. (!) I picked up Poèsie at Dillard's in El Paso during my family reunion. They had just gotten it in - it wasn't even on display yet. I fell in love immediately and bought it on the spot. If you're even remotely interested go check it out at your Chanel counter immediately. Some stores have already sold out and it's not sold online.
