This next collection consists of eight new CHANEL LES 4 OMBRES eyeshadow quads inspired by the house’s famous tweed fabric. Along with the release of the eyeshadow quads there will be four new complimenting eyeliners released that will enhance the eyes when used in conjunction with the quads. Chanel will discontinue many of the existing quads and replace them with these eight new quads shown below. The new quads have an updated formula that makes them so much softer, they will last a lot longer and they will no longer contain talc, a common ingredient found in many Chanel products. The majority of the new quads will feature a satin to shimmery finish or a satin to metallic finish.
The quads have already been released (I believe in March) in Canada and Europe. Hopefully they will make their way to the states soon but so far I am hearing it will be later this year (in the Fall) before we will get them. Although I have also heard from other sources that we may not get them at all - which I hope is not true! I would love to get my hands on several of these.
Two points of discussion:
1. Whether or not the states will get the same exact quads as Canada and Europe or a different reformulated version. Currently when Chanel releases new eyeshadow quads or blushes to the states we typically receive a powder eyeshadow quad or powder blush while Canada and Europe receive a baked version.
These will have the same formula globally!
2. Currently Chanel eyeshadow quads are priced at $59.00 USD which is an increase of only $1.00 from last year. However, with the release of these eight new quads this Fall, will we see a significant price increase from $59 to $65.00 for each of them?
These will cost $61.00 USD so that's a two dollar (significant) increase considering the price increase we just had with the quads in January (look for the quads to hit $65 by next year).
I will be sure to update this post as more information becomes available.

A palette of four eyeshadows that features the most advanced innovation to enhance creativity. Its optimized formula unites softness and easy application to express maximum colour: consistent, luminous and even all day long. The shades come in a variety of effects: matte, satiny, iridescent or metallic.
A practical and portable black lacquered case with a large mirror.
Result: The four eyeshadows blend endlessly to define natural, intense, sophisticated or smoky eyes.
A formula that enhances colour and makeup effects.
• An exceptional concentration of long-lasting pure pigments for a wider range of effects and intensities
• A jellifying system and a blend of polymers and spherical powders for:
- a soft, creamy, glide-on texture
- shades that blend together perfectly
- an even makeup result
• A total absence of talc for heightened colour radiance and luminosity
• Synthetic mica to ensure consistency between the colours in the case and the makeup result on the eyelids
Each harmony is composed of:
• two medium shades to blend together or apply in contrast,
• one dark shade to intensify, sculpt and add depth,
• one light shade to illuminate and give the eyes a wide-open effect.
Each function has its own place in the case.
To help you during the first applications, the CHANEL Makeup Creation Studio suggests four ways to apply LES 4 OMBRES: natural chic, sophisticated, seductive or smoky eyes to create with the eight new colour harmonies.

204 TISSÉ VENDÔME
A sparkling tweed that reflects the City of Lights
Open this palette as you would a jewelry box and step into the Paris of Gabrielle Chanel, where the sparkling Place Vendôme awaits you. A deep beige, a beige peach, a grayish brown and an intense apricot reveal a passionate selection of shades in this harmony.
208 TISSÉ GABRIELLE
A tweed that borrows its grays from a stormy sky
With this harmony, rediscover the audacity of a woman who successfully freed herself from conventions and redefined those of French elegance. Like her unisex first name, the Tissé Gabrielle harmony mixes androgynous shades. A palette of revisited classics for an unmatched smoky effect. Show off smoky eyes by applying a subtle blend of delicate gray and velvet black gray, an iridescent white gold and a grayish mauve.
214 TISSÉ MADEMOISELLE
A tweed in the colours of dawn
A woman's freedom, as envisioned by Gabrielle Chanel, filled her creations with elegance, simplicity and eternal youth. The beige and brown tones of this palette highlight your natural beauty. Luminous beige and intense beige, satiny yellow and khaki brown blend together and become one to give your eyes a very fashionable nude style.
224 TISSÉ RIVIERA
A tweed with hints of southern France
In the early 1930s, Coco Chanel chose the south of France as her home. Colours and their endless reflections have taken over this palette to echo the beauty of the French Riviera. Metallic blue, light pink, matte black and dove gray with pink shimmers embody an elegant state of mind.

Vintage pinks are all the rage today. The rue Cambon, the realm of Gabrielle Chanel, offers radiant and singular femininity in this palette that is emblematic of the House. The colour palette unveils subtle, soft and luminous tones, from an iridescent mauve and a velvet blackcurrant to a bluish pale pink and an intense pink.
232 TISSÉ VÉNITIEN
A tweed that reveals the mysteries of Venice
During an initiatory journey through the canals of Venice, Gabrielle Chanel drew inspiration from the enchanting colour combinations she saw in the City of the Doges. A hypnotic partition composed around green. From a delicate silver pink, a bluish green and an intense green to a platinum khaki, the palette floods your eyes with luminosity rivaled only by water itself.
