|Chanel Fascination and Seduction eyeshadow quads from the Jeux de Regards Makeup Collection|
(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.
|Chanel Eyeshadow Quad - Fascination|
Light bluish green, pale greyish sliver, dark grey with hints of bluish green, medium grey.
|Chanel eyeshadow quad - Fascination - Swatches (starting from light blue green shade on top)|
I have swatched the light blue green shade twice - the first and last swatch - since the first one isn't very clear.
|Chanel Seduction Eyeshadow Quad - Photos|
Starting from top row dark shade - Plum, beige, deep brown, peach (all have a slight sheen - satin sort of finish with brown being the most matte)

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.
