Les Fleurs D’ete de Chanel Quad Summer 2011

I had just mentioned in yesterday’s Les Fleurs D’ete de Chanel I was curious about the quad that would be launching with the release and it popped up on the British Beauty Blogger’s site.

Loving the greens but getting more of a Fall vibe from it than Summer! I was expecting some tropical sunny shades for the quad since th rest of the collection definitely has that vibe.

Thoughts?

Note: Release is subject to change once it releases in the US.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I don’t know why but I totally hate the packaging makeup of chanel, it is so old-fashioned , it really has no appeal to me therefore never buy anything from them

    I agree that at first glance it is much more of a fall look. It vaguely reminds me of my favorite LE Chanel quad (I stocked up – winter a few years ago; most gorgeous forrest green ever, taupe, baby pink, and a soft gold). However, I can see this working for summer when I think about it a bit more. The two shades on the left (soft pink and soft green) would make a really pretty simple eye, and could be incorporated with some other shades. Use the charcoal for a smokey night look. I’d pair it with a much more peachy blush and a soft coral lip.

    I love the look of this quad as I love darker colours.
    The dark green looks lovely.
    I wonder how shimmery/frosty they are?
    They don’t do much in a matte or almost matte shadow.

    Humm, I feel like I have this quad. I actually went and looked at a couple older ones and sure enough there is a couple similar ones. I’m not sure If I’ll skip it. I’ll check it out in person. If its the round formula -its a pass. I like the u.s.releases ( square formula) much much better. There will still be some new nail polishes and glosses from the launch in my future for sure.

    I do agree with Nunuiviet, the packaging does not have great appear (it reminds of the way Avon packages their eye shadow quads) but I am swooning over the shadow colors.

  • Jen

    This is the first Chanel quad I’ve seen that has interested me. Love the colors… Even if it is more fall-y than summery.

  • Nia

    Not sure yet, I think this is one that you need to see swatched on yourself.
    Chanel is a weak spot for me, so I will definitely check it out.

  • Ryan

    The colors actually feel really spring like to me. On a different Chanel note, Muse, are you planning on reviewing Vitalumiere Aqua? I really want to know your view on it.

      Hey Ryan! 🙂 I have to tossed in my to be tried pile. I ordered it online but I honestly didn’t open it or check it out as of yet, have you tried yet? I’ll try to the review up shortly.
