(Info thanks to Teger@Specktra)

Chanel Jeux de Regards makeup collection finally launched in the US (available at Nordstrom stores and online).  The collection concentrates on the eyes, of course, and the products featured are mostly repromotes except for the 2 new eyeshadow quads and an eyeliner.  I have never been a fan of the Illusion D'Ombre formula and have enough eyeliners to last me a lifetime and some more, so I picked up only the eyeshadow quads.  I do have some photos of the other products to share, though.

I love the powder versions of the Chanel eyeshadow quads that folks in the US are lucky to get.  I had planned to pick up only Seduction, but I just couldn't resist the muted greyish blue-greens of Fascination so ended up buying both.  The colors seem (because really I haven't done anything more than swatching once or twice) so smooth and pigmented.  For my swatches, I applied the shadows dry with no primer or moisturizer on my hand.  At the counter I had used the Chanel eyeshadow brush to apply them, and I got pretty good color payoff.  The more I see these, the more I am oh-so-not-amused by Chanel's marketing strategy - selling stupid baked versions in other parts of the world.  Sure, some of the newer baked versions are quite good, but I prefer these any day.

  1. So jealous!!! I pre-ordered these from Nordstrom like 3 weeks ago and have been waiting and waiting. I should have them in a few days--you're so lucky to have them already. I can't wait to play. I usually don't do blues either, but Fascination just looked too incredible too pass up.

    1. Know what, Jenny..I would have done the exact same thing, but I would be out of town for the long weekend, and I didn't want to risk not being around when the parcel arrived, so I had to keep quiet about ordering online..and then I go to Nordstrom today and I see this D :D The SA was like how did you know about this quad (cos I asked her for Seduction) - apparently it had just justtttttttttttt arrived :P

    2. You're so lucky! I don't live by ANYTHING. Well, I not that long ago I lived close to a Sephora and a Macys(wow). But otherwise, nothing. I have to order everything online. I think our state is supposed to get a Nordstrom in a year or two. Oh, I want these now! Thanks for the awesome review hun! <3

  2. I saw this display at Bluemercury in DC. I couldn't leave without buying Convoitise and the Santal eye pencil. I was surprised to see Apparition, a re-release from a LE collection Chanel put out a year ago. I bought it then and love it.

    1. Me too..looks like most of the collection is just repromotes. Illusion D'Ombre doesn't last too well on my lids, so it was an easy skip for me :D

  3. Just saw these at the Chanel counter and managed to resist purchasing the blue quad. After seeing the swatches I'm really tempted to go back and get it!

  4. The Fascination quad looks very familiar, do you know if the colours have appeared in other Chanel quads before? Thanks for posting. Bleu Exquisis might be just what I need!

  5. Hmm..I thought it looked similar to the Metamorphose quad, but it isn't..other than that I don't have anything else similar..

  6. Seduction reminds me of Eclosion, which I have but really dislike. I shall skip the blue; partly due to your eye look I have decided that Nars Kamchatka will be the only blue eyeshadow I buy. I think ;).

    1. Ha..me too..love Kamchatka :D I amn't sure how Fascination would turn out on my eyes..the colors looked pretty on swatches..hopefully that translates to wearable on the eyes :P
