Lumiere et Opulence (342)

Chanel Lumiere et Opulence (342) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that features four shimmery shades in a smoky olive, peachy beige, golden olive, and dark brown. All four shades had good pigmentation, applied evenly, and blended out with ease over bare skin and lasted around eight hours before starting to fade on me.

Lumiere et Opulence #1

Lumiere et Opulence #1 is a dark, smoky olive green with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a smooth, incredibly silky texture that was more firmly-pressed into the pan–so no fallout–but picked up beautifully with a dry brush. It had opaque pigmentation that went on evenly and stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading.

Lumiere et Opulence #2

Lumiere et Opulence #2 is a brighter, light-medium peach with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth consistency that felt silky to the touch but wasn’t powdery nor too dense/thick. The finish was very “melted” and sat well on my skin. It started to fade noticeably on me after eight hours of wear.

Lumiere et Opulence #3

Lumiere et Opulence #3 is a light-medium, yellowy olive with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a lightly creamy texture that felt thin but not dry, so it applied evenly on my lid without sheering out too readily. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Lumiere et Opulence #4

Lumiere et Opulence #4 is a medium-dark brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product that diffused nicely along the edges. The consistency felt smooth, slightly firm, and silky, so the product picked up well with a dry brush but didn’t have any fallout or powderiness in the pan. The eyeshadow lasted well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably along the edges.

First of all, your eye look using this has pretty much sold me that I need this quad! STUNNING!
However, I’ve already overdone it this month, and it’s only the 2nd of November. PMG Subversive Mothership III has already shipped and is coming my way. Perhaps Lazarus and Gigabyte with a few additions can get me there? At least for now, I’m hoping.

It’s a pretty quad, but I think Gigabyte will definitely be a star for you! That murky olive shade is the more “unique” shade in the quad, IMO.

I’m relieved and glad to know that Gigabyte will literally “shine”. I probably don’t actually need this quad in reality, if I’m being honest with myself. Especially since I’ve been imagining all the interesting and fun looks I’ve been putting together in my head with PMG Subversive. Even combining some with other palettes. Night Creature and the other Blitz purple-blue duochrome have me excited to receive my package!

This quad is lovely. Fear of ruining the gorgeous embossing would keep me from using it. If they release this later on with just a regular press, I’d pick it up in a heartbeat.

Ah, well maybe it’s best over bare skin and Chanel shouldn’t be used with primer? The creasing I got was so bad but I haven’t played with Chanel formula in many years. Thank you for the review!

Wish I could help! Wasn’t overly creamy or anything for me, though reading the ingredient list made me wonder if they missed something (because all the initial ingredients are more emollient).

Oh that’s really interesting. If it’s extra emollient, then layered over a slightly emollient primer (which mine is and I don’t usually set it with powder shadow), it would be greasy in no time. And that’s exactly what happened.
Phew. I was quite surprised at the outcome, given the price point for a total of 0.07 oz. ($886/oz….. vs $97/oz for Natasha Denona 28-pan for instance). But that makes a lot more sense now.
Thank you for the info!

The odd part is that reading the list would make me think it was a full-on cream eyeshadow – emollient and wet to the touch – but they are very powder-like to me by touch, even in the pan, smooth to be sure but more like a silky powder (with no powderiness…).

For me, perhaps??? Just kidding! (sort of). I have an embarrassing 8 dupes of shade #1 and 3, I think, for #4 but no listed dupes for 2 and 3 (though I probably have colours that are similar enough). But, honestly, if this quad was available near me, I’d be out there buying it. It hardly helps that Christine always does the most beautiful eye looks with colours like these!

This arrived in my mailbox at lunchtime today. OMG – it is more lovely than I ever thought, even from your excellent photos, Christine. I thought #3 might be a bit of an ugly mustard-y shade but it’s totally beautiful! I was surprised, though, by how small the pans look. I don’t know if the weight/amount of product is significantly different but the pans sure look small (pretty, with the embossing, but small).

By weight, it’s the same as the domed-shaped ones (like Blurry Green)! Some of the older domed ones like Tissde d’Automne actually say 0.04 oz. as net weight.

I had this on my wishlist and was pretty sure I would buy it since I decided to pass on the PMG Divine rose palette after the whole marketing fiasco, I swatched it in store with my fingers on Saturday and I have to say I was pretty disappointed… The swatches were murky and with not much colour payoff. Christine, does it change that much when applied with a brush? I trust your reviews so I’m trying to understand what made it look so lackluster to me and what I could do to make it work, because I really like the colour story.
Otherwise, any ideas for golden/green/olive shadows/small palettes? Unfortunately ND Gold is not quite my thing.

Was the tester new? Having a lot of people put their fingertips into a product can greatly change how they perform, especially for some formulas that may be more impacted by the addition of natural oils.

Hi Blanca,

It really depends on the formula! Pressing can compact a product, and the addition of the national oils/dirt on one’s fingertips (not necessarily yours… but those who are trying them!) can completely change the texture. Some formulas can develop noticeable hard surfaces after one or two uses with fingertips – it really depends.

If that’s the case, isn’t that an argument for not getting the palette? If it is that affected by several people touching it..
I haven’t tried to make it work again. Too distracted by other palettes.

Products in a tester environment =/= comparable to personal use. Testers in general are going to be impacted by people touching them, and it’s a completely different environment- not everyone has clean hands when touching products, the way you touch products to swatch may be differently (likely swatching for color and texture rather than as intended for applying to eyes), you may be swatching multiple shades with the same fingertip, and having products swatched by dozens of people each day (or more) is not at all comparable to home use. Makeup remover isn’t always easily accessible either, so prior products might be wiped off on tissue etc. which can cross-contaminate products.

I don’t know if that’s the case with this product as I don’t have anything that indicates that the formula is any more or less prone to reacting to natural oils based on using it, but it can be a more prevalent issue with testers because of the extreme use they go through in a shorter period of time (and likely with less-clean hands and fingertips since we’re out and about, shopping and whatnot!). That’s just one reason why I require physical product to test and review and don’t just swatch things at a counter and give a review because I’ve learned that testers aren’t always a reliable way to judge quality (much like relying on a swatch alone vs. applying isn’t always the end-all be-all of quality).

As FYI, the palette includes sponge-tipped applicators and the how-to says to use with those applicators or an eyeshadow brush!
