Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eye Shadow 31 Rose Envolee

I first saw images of this gorgeous eyeshadow quad over on The Beauty Look Book and the beautiful swatches convinced me that I need it. This eyeshadow quad was an Asian exclusive (aren't always the most beautiful things Asian exclusives?), so I had to try and track it down on eBay. Fortunately I found it at a pretty good price ($2 over the rrp) and I'm now the proud owner of Rose Envolee.

This gorgeous eyeshadow quad contains a shimmery peachy pink colour, a soft satin white, a dark chocolate brown with purple and blue shimmer and a beautiful rosy pink with slight shimmer. It has the European baked formula which means it can be used wet as well as dry for more intensity. I found the shadows swatch very easily and they are pretty pigmented, especially the beautiful brown shade. I haven't used this yet, but am looking forward to using it soon.

Se more pictures and swatches after the jump!

  1. Do you think it is worth the price? I am considering buying this one as well, but I think it looks a lot like the Christmas 2010 edition. Love your blog by the way! A huge inspiration!

  2. Thank you! :) I never thought it was similar to Tentation Cuivre, but I can see your point. I think that quad is warmer with 2 browns and a paler pink, whereas Rose Envolee is cooler, the dark brown is more purpley and the pink is brighter and rosier. Plus there's only one brown. I do think it's worth getting, but it depends on your priorities, Chanel is expensive and if you want a variety of colours, you might want to pass on this. I love it though.

  3. Looks gorgeous! Pinks and purples are my fave, but I am on total "no-buy" right now!!!

  4. Hey there, just a quick question, does all the non-us versions of the chanel quads (i.e. the round pan ones) only contain 1.2g of product? Thanks alot! :)

  5. @Susan Yes, they only contain 1.2g because it's a totally different baked formula, so I guess it's very light. But you still get loads, so I don't feel like we're short changed.

  6. I have wanted to buy that for a long time. I do not even like Chanel but those colors on your swatch look so beautiful that they make my stomach sick. Every single color is perfect which I find really rare in palettes. Usually there is at least one color that I do not like.

  7. Gorgeous. I am so over Chanel for years ago, but Chanel tends to come out with gorgeous color combinations. I enjoy the shimmery look in Chanel shadows, which strangely, never enhances the wrinkles at all. Some frosty shadows do that but Chanel is just shimmery. I have managed to talk myself out of many Chanel quads but I am so weak for pinky nudes and rosy shades for my green/blue eyes. I might just need this one.
