Blurry Mauve (328)

Chanel Blurry Mauve (328) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, permanent (at least, as far as I can tell per Chanel’s website) neutral set of shades with a rosier/plum leaning. All four shades had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable textures, though the red-plum shade was a bit thinner and wasn’t quite as easy to work with as the other three shades.

Blurry Mauve #1

Blurry Mauve #1 is a medium, taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-opaque coverage to full coverage. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and silky with slight powderiness in the pan but none present in application. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Blurry Mauve #2

Blurry Mauve #2 is a medium-dark bronze with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The eyeshadow had a soft, blendable consistency that was easy to work with. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before showing signs of fading on me.

Blurry Mauve #3

Blurry Mauve #3 is a medium, plummy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable, but I noticed it darkened a bit unevenly if I wasn’t careful–for those who tend to use their eyeshadows over primer, I suspect that will help solve that issue. The texture was smooth and velvety to the touch without being powdery, and it blended out easily on my skin. It lasted for eight hours on my skin before fading visibly.

Blurry Mauve #4

Blurry Mauve #4 is a pale taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full pigmentation with a second layer. The texture was velvety and smooth to the touch without being powdery. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out without difficulty. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before it started to fade.

I’ve got dupes of #1 and 2, which are the shades I like best in this quad. Overall, I think this would be too muddy for me to use as a stand-alone so it’s a “no” for me.

It looks like a solid set of shades. But, for a quad, it seems to be lacking *something*? I think I would have much preferred that the reddish shade or the lighter pinky taupey shade would’ve been luminously shimmery, and that the deepest taupe had not been.

For me, the red is the one I’d gladly swap out. While I’m experimenting with UD Weirwood Leaves and Smashbox Headline, the red in this quad, like the one in Cadeur et Experience, is just an unattractive colour for me.

I mean I guess I’m kind of disappointed that the House of Chanel doesn’t know what color mauve is, but it’s certainly a beautiful palette and I’m glad it works well.

This palette looks promising though I wonder if the shades would look muddied if worn together. Your eyelook is beautifully creative, Christine, though I was hoping there was a look of the palette worn on its own. I’m not sure it has enough mauve for me.

Sorry, I am pretty pressed for time with the number of eye products I have in my backlog right now, especially glittery shades that tend to test better when coupled with more matte shades in the crease, so it was a good fit for my testing schedule.

Right, I agree. I really don’t like how so many lines are advertising their palettes as mauve or plum, when there is way too much brown in the shades. The more brown (even the so-called ‘cool’ browns, aka taupes), the more neutral and muddy the color. It seems that some people think a cool color has to be ‘bright’ to be considered ‘cool’. This is wrong. There are smokey cool colors — smokey purples, berries, plums, burgundies and mauves. They have a bit of grey in them. Or are a little blackened. And, they are NOT neon. I’m beginning to wonder if the industry even knows what cool colors are anymore.

I’m not quite finding the ‘joy’ in this quad – I think shades 1 & 2 are too similar to each other and shade 4 underwhelming. I am sure that on the right person, this could look very sophisticated, but I think you would need shades from other palettes to make it zing.
