Giving the Chanel Lilium Quad Another Chance

I thought I’d pull out the Chanel Summer 2011 collection Les 4 Ombres quad Lilium out and give it a second chance. I’d only wore it once when I first received and reviewed the summer collection here.

I do like the shades in this palette but I just don’t find they do much for me. The green is gorgeous but I do have a lot of Chanel quads with blackened greens as well as the gorgeous Le Metier de Beaute Kaleidoscope. The taupe shade is pretty but I seem to be the black sheep when it comes to taupe. They just don’t seem to work for me? I don’t know what the problem is. I think I may end up parting with this quad. I guess we’ll see.

Products Used:

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua BR10
Make Up For Ever HD Concealer 305
Laura Merier Secret Brightening powder
Illamasqua Tremble whichwasn’t the pop of pink I wanted so I topped with:

I love Chanel shadows because the last very well for me. I also love using the darkest shade in the quad wet to line. Here is how my eyes looked after 12 hours. My brows have wore off a lot (I think I was rubbing them a bit) but my eyeshadow still looks almost exactly the same as it did when I left the house 12 hours earlier.

    I’m underwhelmed by Lilium but Joyeuse looks amazing on you! Love your FOTD, especially your gorgeous curls :)

    How disappointing it is when we get a dud. I also loved Lilium in the compact but not on my skin. And I agree your curls are gorgeous!

    I, too, was less than thrilled with Lillium. I had it applied in a makeover when the collection came out…I loved everything but the eyes. I think this is the first time I’ve NOT loved a LE quad, but so it goes…

    This color combo actually looks great to me, and it would go well with my coloring I think.
