Chanel les Quatres Ombres: Les Coromandels

This was purchased some time between 1984 and 1988, probably in 1985 or 1986. The four named colors are opal, copper, violet, and topaz. All are remarkably smooth considering their age and have good pigmentation. I did not use eyeshadow primer for swatches, but I did have some lotion on my arm. I used the original applicators which are a bit delicate but haven't disintegrated yet.

The exterior is scratched and scraped, but not as bad as it could be considering the number of moves it has made with me.

One of the shadows (opal) partially detached from its pan but is still usable.  The others are intact.

I swatched in clockwise order from opal in the top left to copper to violet to topaz.  FIrs photoi is taken in shade, second in sun.
