Chanel Mystere et Intensite Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Mystere et Intensite (304)

Chanel Mystere et Intensite Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) contains a soft brown, coral, black, and deeper berry. I liked the concept more in the pan than on the lid; normally I find Chanel to put together cohesive colors, but the tone of the brown did not work as well with the coral and berry as I expected–all subjective observations and not part of the actual ratings, as a note. The quality of two shades wasn’t on-par with most of Chanel’s newer eyeshadow quads, so the palette left me feeling underwhelmed.


Mystere et Intensite #1

Mystere et Intensite #1 is a medium brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture that was finely-milled without being dusty or powdery in the pan. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin and blended out easily. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

Mystere et Intensite #2

Mystere et Intensite #2 is a soft, peachy-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. Though the eyeshadow felt smooth to the touch, it was firmer and stiffer to work with and was difficult to get color coverage out of it. It was also significantly lighter than the pan-color and applied unevenly to my lid. It was so disappointing and couldn’t be fixed (I tried applying it with a dampened brush) that I had pop on a glitter top coat to minimize the unevenness in the “look” itself. I tried it again later on to see if it was any better (perhaps just the placement before), but it was still hard to work with. It lasted for six and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Mystere et Intensite #3

Mystere et Intensite #3 is a soft, medium black with subtle pearl over a matte finish. It was soft but somewhat dusty to work with, so there was a touch of fallout during application if I wasn’t careful. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage, which I think is practical for some but depends on your need for pigmentation. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Mystere et Intensite #4

Mystere et Intensite #4 is a deep berry with cooler undertones and a satin finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, soft, and blendable texture. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin and blended out beautifully. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed any fading.
