Take two: Chanel's Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in Tisse Vendome

This isn't a review per se, but commentary on performance troubleshooting. You see I dropped a pretty penny for Tisse Vendome and I am not one to throw in the towel.

The creasing issues I experienced were equivalent to having the bird flipped at me. General frustration doesn't even begin to account for the wave of emotions that fell over me. Again, never one to give up, perseverance is my only friend in this sort of situation.

On me NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow never fails, period (or so I thought). Without hesitation, I reached for it prior to applying Tisse Vendome a few weeks back; by hour seven the creasing was abysmal.

Tisse Vendome and I took a much needed break in order for me to figure out a way to make this relationship work.

Going the two birds one stone route worked when it came time to test Tisse Vendome over my two travel-sized primers from Too Faced and Urban Decay. P-Cakes suggested forgoing primer altogether, but my oily eyelids wouldn't have given Tisse Vendome a chance in heck.

Did Tisse Vendome and I skip off into the sunset?

We sure did and I have Too Faced and Urban Decay to thank for that. All told, our skipping session lasted well over eight hours last night and there was no creasing in sight.
