Au Fil de L'Eau (358)

Chanel Au Fil de L’Eau (358) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($65.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad featuring an iridescent pink, soft pink-peach, mid-tone gray, and darker gray; all four shades had some shimmer ranging from satin to soft metallic. They had good color coverage but often needed a second layer to get to full opacity (alternatively, one could use a primer or apply with a dampened brush). They were easy to work with and lasted around eight hours on average.

Au Fil de L'Eau #1

Au Fil de L’Eau #1 is a pale, white gold base with peach-to-pink shimmer. It had a semi-opaque base with a stronger presence from the shimmer/shine that gave it a slight illusion of greater opacity when applied. The texture was smooth to the touch, firm but not too dense or thick, and picked up well with a brush. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Au Fil de L'Eau #2

Au Fil de L’Eau #2 is a very light, pink-peach with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin but seemed to look a bit more matte when applied so it had a more faded appearance. It also applied a lot lighter than it appeared, so it didn’t have as much depth applied as it did in the compact. The color started to show signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

Au Fil de L'Eau #3

Au Fil de L’Eau #3 is a medium-dark gray with fine, bluish-silver pearl that gave it a soft sheen. It had good color coverage and seemed to look a bit smoother and more opaque when applied to my lid compared to the swatch. The texture was smooth to the touch, lightly creamy and more emollient than other shades in the palette, but it wasn’t overly emollient so it adhered evenly. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Au Fil de L'Eau #4

Au Fil de L’Eau #4 is a deep, bluish-gray with cool undertones and a satin sheen. The color coverage was slightly shy of full opacity in a single layer but could be built up to full coverage with a second layer or if used with a dampened brush. The eyeshadow had a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan, so powderiness wasn’t present and it was easy to control and to apply with precision. It lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

This is so stinkin’ pretty both in the pan and the swatches! However, I have to remind myself that my UD Naked Smoky goes mostly unused because blue-grays can make my eyes look like dull seawater instead of the more vibrant blue-green they typically look like. But, I really am drawn to this quad!

I especially love the bluish grays, and I’m always up for an iridescent white brow bone/inner corner highlight. I’m not sure how one would use the peachy pink shade, as it doesn’t seem strong enough as a eye highlight or eyeshadow topper. The quad would have been so much more versatile if it were more opaque and pigmented. Maybe it would work as a subtle one and done.

I love the grandient grey/blue shades but I feel the pinky peach and the cream shades are under pigmented. If the pinky peach was a more definite peachy gold, I think it would have made the quad more versatile.

I love the greys in this. I would actually like to have the two quads as one palette.
If possible I might buy both. Hm, how to decide! 😀
On a completely different, but yet related topic, why does MAC discontinue my favourite eye shadows? (Silver Ring) And why do I always find out through the (excellent) dupes list?! 🙂
