Lastly, I have the Regard Signé de Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Topkapi from the pre-fall Chanel Byzance Makeup Collection. It contains a whopping 4g of product and it’s made in Italy as compared to the usual Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow – 1.7g of product, made in France. Topkapi retails at S$95.
There is a classic Chanel logo embossed on each of the eyeshadows and this palette comes with black applicators - I believe we get the white ones in Asian. The embossed Chanel logos are so glamorous, makes my heart ache a little to use but I can’t just leave this stunning palette aside without swatching and creating a look with it, right?
The colours look rather metallic in the pan which scared me a little but they are not overly metallic on my skin which I am very glad about.

The Regard Signé de Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Topkapi consists off a shimmery brown, shimmery taupe, glittery gold and an almost matte deep brown. All the colours swatch beautifully – the texture is amazing, buttery smooth, soft and the colour payoff is amazing.
I have no palettes that is similar to Topkapi – how is that possible? I kept asking myself but I really can’t find anything close even with other brands. I will be comparing Topkapi with Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow in Kaska Beige and Reflets d’Ombre.

Usually, I find that the Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadows have rather decent colour payoff but not in this case, swatched next to the highly pigmented Topkapi.
I would say that the Regard Signé de Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Topkapi is a neutral palette with a twist – referring to the mind-blowing gold. You can use this quad for a natural day look or bring it up a notch by adding the gold for the night. It’s an amazing combination with amazing quality.
If you love Chanel makeup, you would definitely appreciate this palette like no others.
