Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tisse Dimensions

June 10, 2016

It’s been a long week, but the weekend is here at last!  I finished my marathon binge-watching of Descendants of The Sun a few days ago, and I’m so hungover from it all that I can’t seem to move on with life.  Completely abnormal for me, especially considering how I’ve never had a thing for baby-faced men, and now I finally understand the huge cult-following for DoTS.  If you are curious, you may watch it here at your own risk!!  And before I get completely sucked back into watching it a 2nd time round, I’d like to pen down my thoughts on more of Chanel’s Eyes Speak Volumes Collection – Les 4 Ombres Tisse Dimensions.

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tisse Dimensions

For the Eyes Speak Volumes Collection, Chanel has released 3 Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow quads, I had reviewed 1 earlier here, and today I would like to introduce Tisse Dimensions.  This is a much more straightforward palette with pink-burgundy as its main focus.

Chanel Eyes Speak Volumes is a collection that is intended to bring out the different personalities behind our eyes, and so these pieces are designed to be unique in their viewpoint.  Where Tisse Particulier [reviewed here] set itself apart with its bold colour combination; Tisse Dimensions took a classic pink-purple palette and dialled up the drama with a bold shimmery silver.

Here are the swatches, taken from the front, and at an angled to show up the finish.  The most interesting thing to note is the opacity of the shimmery silver, and its chameleon-like ability to turn into a seafoam green when photographed even though it is really a true-silver when applied.

The shades, as swatched from left to right, are:

After playing with Tisse Dimensions over the last couple of days, this is how it looks best on me.  Instead of trying to fight to make the light pink show up on my lid as a main colour, I used the burgundy all over my lid as a base shade.  If you don’t have time to build up the colour intensity, you can try applying over a black base or a burgundy kohl liner like this one.  Thereafter, I used the pink to blend out the harsh lines around my crease, and added a dab of silver on the middle of my lid.  The combination of shimmers all layered together is incredibly pretty and multi-dimensional which my camera is unable to capture completely.  Finally, pale ivory as a brow-bone highlight, and coats of mascara.

I think the resultant look is a nice twist to the traditional smokey eye, and since the colours are not too intense, they are very wearable for the day as well.  I am really quite fond of this look, as purples are my archilles’ heel.  The only thing keeping me from recommending this more strongly is that I think you can achieve pretty much the same look with last holiday’s Illusion d’Ombre 857 Rouge Noir [reviewed here].  Of course that is limited edition and pulls red/brown on me, so it wouldn’t produce the exact same results.  Also, the silver shimmer in Tisse Dimensions add a certain boldness to the attitude which is irreplaceable.

In case you didn’t fancy any of the eyeshadow palettes [there are 3 in total, and I have now reviewed 2 of them], Chanel has also prepared 5 new limited edition Stylo Eyeshadows, a game-changing mascara and a brow palette in 2 different shade combinations.  I will be talking you through these next week, for now, I’m heading off for some DoTS re-runs!!

    What a coincidence Linda! I just watched Descendants of the Sun over the weekend as well. I had no clue what it was, as I was just randomly flipping through channels one night, and I instantly got hooked. I thought it was ultra cheesy at times (but hey, this is k-drama we’re talking about and not America movies), but I got sucked in by the romance and the fact that it had some action in it. Sometimes I get overwhelmed if Korean dramas are too cute. Lol.

      Hey Christina, I KNOW RIGHT??? I got hooked after the first 10minutes, the first 10 i was flipping through Instagram and not paying attention. It does get cheesier towards the end, and the finale was kinda huh to me, but overall, it’s really addictive. I think the 2 couples’ chemistry is amazing, and the guys are so charming!

    Hi Linda, thank you for your reviews. I really like the looks you’ve created with the two new quads. I’m quite tempted by Tisse Dimensions. Do you know if it contains parabens? I know that some of the quads made in France do. Many thanks.

    Can I also ask what lipstick you’re wearing in the photo above? It’s beautiful. 🙂

      Hi Anne, it’s interesting that you asked because I don’t usually inspect ingredients for eyeshadows! I realized that this Tisse Dimensions is made in Italy and does not contain parabens. However, Tisse Particulier is made in France and does indeed contain paraben.

      I was wearing Burberry Full Kisses in Cherry Blossom in the pict above! Thank you for liking it. I’ll be reviewing it shortly!

      • Anne Sanderson says:

        Hi Linda, thank you for getting back to me so promptly. It’s really helpful. It’s interesting that this quad is made in Italy but the other in France and that the ingredients differ (at least a bit). Thanks again.

        Looking forward to your review of the lipstick.
