Chanel Les 4 Ombres #204 Tissé Vendôme, Review, Swatches & FOTD

It is no secret that I went crazy with the new formula of Chanel Les 4 Ombres after swatching all of them at the counter and coming home with two. Then that two became, well, four, then five... I have already reviewed two of them for you. Tisse Vendome, the green quad, was sold out a week after its release in Germany. I can understand that because it is beautiful and that metallic shade is to die for. I have also shown you Tisse Rivoli, which is a superb natural in my opinion. I also got Gabrielle and Camelia, which I will review as soon as possible, then I might as well share Riviera which I recently got. However today I would like to show you Tissé Vendôme because I have an upcoming post which is a slight variation to this color combination.


Chanel Les 4 Ombres #204 Tissé Vendôme

I don't want to repeat everything about the formula but it is very creamy, no fall out, not powdery and color pay-off is very good. I don't think this leaves anything to be desired, at least not to me. Maybe just a little bit more product wouldn't be bad but I am happier with less and effective product once compared to more and ineffective ones. 


Chanel Les 4 Ombres #204 Tissé Vendôme


Tissé Vendôme is one of the unusual combinations in the line. It has a nice vivid corally shade combined with naturals which are leaning khaki. If you follow me for some time, you know that I am not very fond of khakis or warm browns on myself. But this quad is definitely different to the point I would say that it is a home run for those of you with green eyes. 



Close-up: Chanel Les 4 Ombres #204 Tissé Vendôme

Top left: This is a warm mid-brown which may lean a little khaki depending on the light. It has satin finish.

Top right: Light champagne with satin to shimmery finish. This one looks like frost, but it really isn't to me since the shimmer is very fine.

Bottom left: Mid-toned soft coral with satin finish. This color can be built up for more intensity or can be blended with other eye shadows for a slight tone change. I absolutely love that one.

Bottom right: Deep warm brown with satin finish. The shimmer of this one is very subtle, it is not flat but once applied looks more like matte. I like the fact that deep shades are a little more matte, so loving that one as well.



Swatch: Chanel Les 4 Ombres #204 Tissé Vendôme

Two weeks ago I was at Breuninger Chanel counter to meet Chanel International Artist, Yannick Lemaire and get my make-up done. He selected Tissé Vendôme for me and combined it with liner Blue Metallique. Unusual combination? He used the lightest brown over the liner and it appeared green. It was gorgeous, I will try to recreate the look and post at some point. But at the moment, you are stuck with the look I have done.

I used the white in the inner corner and mid brown at the outer corner. I blended them with the coral in the middle and added definition to this look by the darkest brown shade on the crease.

Coral in this palette makes green eyes pop but I am sure it makes interesting things to other eye colors as well, since it brightens up the look and adds that little bit of something to the natural tones. I combined this with nude lips and soft pink cheeks.



FOTD with Chanel Les 4 Ombres #204 Tissé Vendôme

I personally can't wear oranges on the eyes all that well because it makes my eyes look orange (or very yellow) but I think coral works just fine. I became obsessed with coral shades on the lids after i have tried Tissé Vendôme and have seen how nice it may look. Then I took this one one step further but this is the topic of another post. ;-)

Final thoughts: I am loving this formula and adoring the shade combination. I can't recommend this one enough.

Do you wear corals on eyes? Do you have any coral eye shadows?

  1. Hey Sara, it's a great quad for you indeed! I'd love to see how it combines with that blue liner! Unusual indeed! I'm warming up to wearing coral on my eyes. I think the only shades I have to avoid are REDDISH ones. As long as they're not reddish, I'll be fine ;)

    1. I know you love your corals, lol, this one was just an introduction for me, then everything got crazy. You will understand what I mean after I post in a few days but I know what you mean about red. It is really difficult to pull off. I can only wear them if I am rested very well.

  4. It's beautiful on you! I do love a wash of apricot colour on my lids, it's a subtle, yet fresh colour that's so easy to wear.

    1. You are right, this one is more of an apricot than coral. But it made me consider coral on lids, which comes to blog, very very soon ;-)

  5. Very very pretty eye look for you. I am very tempted to get this palette just for the peach which is a little more pigmented than any I have. This new formula has really made Chanel eye shadows more desirable, where in the past I would usually choose Dior or Tom Ford. Would love to see the blue metallique liner look. Susan, London

    1. I think it is safe for me to say that I may prefer this formula to Dior's at the moment, or they are almost the same for me, but no fall out and nice pigmentation, definitely a winner. I will try to recreate his look, it was a bit too much liner to me, all around the eye. I think french like liner, me not that much lol.

  9. I have my eye on Tisse Rivoli and this but I'm not sure of this one. I actually was able to try it the coral on my lids and not sure, it does not make my green eyes pop like Tisse Rivoli so I dont see how this would be so amazing on me or on green eyes in general...although I love coral colours on my cheeks and lips, even I'm obsessed wearing colour coloured tops and shirts, on my eyes nothing very special...Or am I doing something wrong perhaps...should I get this one after all? Thanks for your Chanel PostScript, they have been so helpful for checking out the new palettes and the becoming Autumn collection!!!:)
