Chanel Quintessence #8 is a neutral-toned, medium-dark blue with a matte finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow.
Quintessence #8 is a faded, darker blue-teal with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was slightly drier and much thinner compared to the other shades, and it seemed more firmly-pressed in the pan, which made it necessary to use a heavier hand with it to pick up product. The eyeshadow had good color coverage and applied fairly evenly but needed extra effort to really diffuse the edge. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading slightly.
Pure, long-lasting pigments ensure an intense colour effect while the soft, smooth texture allows for effortless application.
