Chanel TOPKAPI Quadra Eye Shadow Palette Swatches, Review & Eye Look *PIC Heavy*

Chanel is so good at the limited edition game. Their Fall 2011 Collection Byzance de Chanel is no exception. Today, I bring you the Topkapi Quadra Eye Shadow Palette, sister of Chanel Rouge Joues Contraste.

Topkapi is extremely beautiful, nicely pigmented and blendable as all get out. It's extremely easy to apply and work with. ANYONE can use this quad. With a little bit of Urban Decay Primer Potion underneath, it will last all night and into the wee hours if you need it to ;) This is my NUMERO UNO favorite quad from Chanel EVER. Sorry, Murano... you've been knocked down to second!

Topkapi retails for $65 and is extremely limited edition, available at and select Boutiques. It is currently sold out on the website, but was actually in stock for a lot longer than I expected... it just sold out yesterday after Temptalia posted her review. I spoke with customer service yesterday and was told that none are on order for restock BUT that doesn't mean anything, and sometimes they'll restock on the website. I think the more people that call customer service to ask if it will restock, the better. Or send a message to the customer service email. If you want this, inquire about it. Can't hurt ;) (PS - don't BUG them, just simply inquire... don't wanna get them mad and have NO hope of a restock!).

EDIT: Topkapi is currently available for order on the website!! Temptalia posted on twitter that CS told her they will ship in 2 weeks! GO ORDER!! =)

And now... an eye look!
As soon as I swatched Topkapi I knew I had to get it on my eyes stat. I started out using the light taupe color all over the lid, then I put the gold color in the inner corners. I blended the deep, dark brown color into the crease and also used it as a very, very thin liner on top. I then took the bronze color and popped it on the outer V and lightly above the dark chocolate crease color. Using the same bronze color I patted it underneath the outer side of my lower waterline, and put the gold color in the inner part. I dabbed a bit more of the taupe color in the middle of my eye lid. On the Inner Water Line I used Urban Decay Corrupt.

I apologize for all of the pics.... I just LOVE this look. You should have seen how many I cut out lol eep

I urge you to click the pics to enlarge them and check out the beauty that is Topkapi!! Were you able to get your hands on this quad, or any of the other items from the Chanel Byzance Collection?

I love that gold. It totally reminds me of senior year of high school, I was obsessed with the gold eyeshadow, but this is much prettier.
