Before Printemps Precieux de Chanel Makeup Collection For Spring 2013 debuts (apparently this coming Friday), I would love to share some thoughts about the Regard Signé de Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Harmonie Du Soir released this Holiday.
This quad retails at S$96 for 4g of product, made in Italy.
Like its elder sister, Regard Signé de Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Topkapi (reviewed here), this quad comes with Chanel’s signature emblem and quilted pattern embossed neatly onto each of the four eyeshadows. It’s very pretty and classy if you ask me.
For Harmonie Du Soir, the colours are very nicely pigmented but not as rich as Topkapi in my opinion.
Texture of these eyeshadows are amazingly soft and creamy to touch – I experienced very little to no fall outs at all. The pigments adhere to my lids even without an eyeshadow primer and they blend together very seamlessly.
Harmonie Du Soir contains an antique gold (less yellow than the one found in Topkapi), a taupe-mauve, a champagne rose and a dusty berry. All shades work together very graciously and I find taupe-mauve and dusty berry the two most interesting shades in the palette.

I love the colour combination of this quad and I think it compliments my skin tone very well. One can use either the antique gold, taupe-mauve or dusty berry as the main colour all over the lids. Possibilities are endless for colours in this quad.
I like how versatile the colours are. Despite having a metallic finish, they are still very wearable – even during the day.
According to local Chanel BA, this limited edition Harmonie Du Soir is fully sold out island-wide and I am not sure if DFS over at the airport still carries them. For me, this is a palette I am glad I didn’t miss. In fact, this is one of the very few eye products I picked up this holiday.
Thank you for reading.
I still feel a pang of regret everytime i see mention of Topkapi 😦
I know what you mean..
I would have felt the same too!!
