Chanel Les 4 Ombres ($80 CAD) in Lumieres Naturelles is a limited edition eyeshadow quad from the Chanel 2019 summer collection.
Like all chanel power products, this comes in a plush velvet sleeve that is useful to store silver jewellery.
While this eyeshadow does not scream summer to me, it is a beautiful palette. Lumieres Naturelles has 2 shimmer (a cool taupe and bronze) and 2 matte (neutral and warm brown) shades. It’s rare to find a palette that mixes cool, warm and neutral shades in one, but Chanel did it beautifully:
The shades in this palette are extremely soft but pigmented so allowing each shade to blend out effortlessly while still holding onto it’s colour. The only shade that I have problems picking up on a brush is the light cool shimmer (top right). When I use my finger to pick up the product, the shadow transfers wonderfully and lays pigmented on my lid.
Overall, it’s impossible to say that the Chanel Lumieres Naturelles palette is worth the money. At $80 a pop for four shades, you can get entire libraries of eyeshadow palettes. However, I am glad I bought the Lumieres Naturelles palette. The colour story, pigment and quality are right up my alley and I’ve reached for this every day since purchasing it.
