Chanel Eyeshadow Quad Lagons

Chanel Eyeshadow Quad in Lagons ($57 #29 Chanel Les 4 Ombres/ Ombres a Paupieres Quatuor) was released with Chanel’s Sophisticated Eye Collection.  Its counterpart was released in Asia and Europe earlier this year, although in the baked formula.  This most recent release of Lagons has the familiar soft and pigmented texture designed for sale in the U.S.  Each color pan has a soft shimmery effect that gives a dreamy blue effect.
There is no true white or cream in Chanel Lagons, all the tones are shades of blue:
  • Top left:  A lightly shimmered sky blue
  • Top right:  A more intensely shimmered medium slate/ heather blue
  • Bottom left:  An intense midnight blue with subtle sparkle
  • Bottom right: An intensely shimmered medium blue with visible clear microsparkle
Here is the promotional image released with the European collection, which shows the dreamy blue effect of Lagons:
These colors are sophisticated.  Although they can be applied intensely, Chanel manages to make this all-blue quad look appropriate on a woman.  The texture is excellent–it is creamy and melts into the skin.
