Meet the latest object of my affection: the Chanel Beige Eyeshadow Quad (or Beiges de Chanel). At the moment, this lovely palette is only sold in brick-and-mortar Saks stores, but rumor is that it will also be in Nordstrom by the end of the month (because it is not available online, there is no picture of it — this is a picture of the Smoky Eyes Quad). Like all Chanel eyeshadow quads, it is $56.
Of the Chanel quads currently available, Beige is most similar to Dunes and Variations — unlike these two, it has no pink shade.
The lightest shade in Dunes is quite yellow (not beige). Dunes also contains an almost purplish brown (compared to Beige’s golden brown). The two darkest shades do look similar.
Kittycatpainter had the great (but expensive) idea to look at Beiges de Chanel side-by-side with Dior’s Iridescent Leather quint ($54). Unfortunately, I like both palettes. If it helps you make a decision, the finishes are slightly different, and the top two shades of Iridescent Leather are rather pink; the bottom two are yellow. (The shadows also do not have numbers printed on them; I added those to match them to their swatches).
