Count down started. Only four days left for my holiday and 3 days for my birthday. Right before I go there are some happy deliveries which are coming with me so that I can share with you throughout my holiday. Fall is my favorite make-up season and all the pieces are super exciting. Today it is about one of my favorite products I got to try out this season. I was just about to pass it because I am not big on khakis. I am so happy I haven't because it is more than a khaki quad. Today it is about Chanel Les 4 Ombres #254 Tissé D'Automne and its stunning combination with Stylo Yeux Waterproof #918 Ardent. Spoiler? You need them both!

I feel like I have been repeating this over and over again but Chanel reformulated their eye shadows last year and it became one of my all time favorite eye shadow formula. The shimmer is so complex and out of this world. Then they layer so beautifully, blend so effortlessly although they are very pigmented and dense. Pure love. Also the colors in the permanent line up (all swatched here) are to die for. I kept on purchasing and I am not ashamed to have all the palettes.
When the first photos of Les Automnales Collection became available I thought this one would be the first quad I will be passing from this formula. Khaki makes my under eye darkness super pretty (!) and blend with my eye color in a camouflage manner. Two good reasons to stay away. But how could I know, Chanel had another plan for this color range...

What about combining khaki and bronze. Bronze! Love it so much, then add a light pink to the mix so once layered with other shades it wouldn't be too warm anymore. This is how they came up with Chanel Les 4 Ombres #254 Tissé D'Automne. Shades are as follows:
Top left: Mid-toned khaki green with golden shimmer and shimmery finish. Khaki lovers will die to get it all around their eyes. I prefer it at the outer corner combined with lots of pink and bronze.
Top right: A very pale neutral pink with shimmery finish. This is a great inner corner highlight. It can also be dusted under the brow bone or even on top of the cheeks and high points of the face. Shimmer is not too disco ball but it is very pigmented, so be careful not to get it with a very dense brush. What I love about this one is that it can be layered with the bronze/copper for a cooler look.
Bottom left: If you are going to kill me, let me put this shade on once more. Oh so stunning coppery bronze with such a multi dimensional shimmer. I want to paint my body with that, not just my eyes. It is a killer, doesn't matter where you decide to apply it.
Bottom right: A very deep khaki green with matte to satin finish. In the pan this shade looked so dry, as if it is going to come off in layers (see the left side of it?). Upon application, I am in love. It is a very dense matte, without being too dry and with no fall out. You can use it as liner, to deepen the crease and outer corner. It is right there if you would like a bit more drama, yes please!

There are four liners in the collection. I want all of them but started with the limited edition one. This one is so phenomenal, I certainly need a back up of this. It is very soft and applies beautifully. After 20 hours it was intact on the waterline! Amazing quality, beautiful shade. Big love.

Below I am wearing the pink shade of the palette in the inner corner, bronze on the middle of the eyelid and khaki on the outer corner as well as crease, mixed a little bit with the deeper khaki. I am also wearing Stylo Yeux Waterproof #918 Ardent along the water line and along the upper lash line. This eye look was so pretty, I couldn't help myself from checking it out all day. With Chanel Les 4 Ombres #254 Tissé D'Automne there are so many other looks I can think of. Can't wait to try all of them out once the weather gets a little cooler.

Here is the look in context. I am wearing Chanel Joues Contraste #260 Alezane (review coming up) on the cheeks and Chanel Rouge Allure in Volage on the lips. The foundation I am using is Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B20.

Final thoughts: Big love for both Chanel Les 4 Ombres #254 Tissé D'Automne and Stylo Yeux Waterproof #918 Ardent. These two are for me must haves from this collection. Great quality, texture and very unique color combination. Thumbs up!
Do you know of any khaki/bronze combination in a palette? I couldn't think of any, thus no comparisons in this post.
