FIrst Look: Chanel Eyeshadow Quad in Mystere with Swatches

June 14, 2013

Chanel Mystere01

This is a first look at Chanel Mystere Eyeshadow Quad ($59/.24 oz./#43), a shimmery mysterious eyeshadow combination of deep greens, soft cream and light taupe.

This comes packed in the same elegant compact as all other Chanel eyeshadow quads.  In some light, the quad can look a touch gray, but in reality there are some very subtle and complex colors in this beautiful palette.

Because of the shimmery cream (top left) and soft shimmery taupe (bottom left), you will have the basis of a beautiful daytime eye with this quad (using either of the deeper shades as a liner or softly in the crease).  However, the deeper colors have enormous potential for dramatic, rich color.

You can see the beautiful rich color and the subtle shimmer of each of the shade.  All shades are richly pigmented and soft. The deeper green/brown in the bottom right is a satin with subtle shimmer, not a matte.

Chanel MystereThe green in the upper left is spectacular.  Indoors with soft flash, you can see the lower color on the right goes toward a near-gray:

So far, I’ve only done one eye and it was beautiful and foolproof with my hazel/green eyes (this arrangement, although many others are possible of course):

This could be the beginning of a very beautiful Fall 2013.  I’m so excited about this collection, really Chanel did a superb job with many of the items.  Chanel Mystere is a beautiful neutral with a twist–absolutely gorgeously formulated. Winner, winner.

    Thanks! From the swatches alone I think this is the first Chanel quad that can really give Beiges de Chanel a run for its money.

    PS: Thanks for the blush review!

    This is gorgeous! This is definitely going on my list along with the Chanel cream blushes 🙂

    The deep green is gorgeous! Do not know if it would work with my dark brown eyes though; sometimes it makes me look muddy :/

  • Anne June 14, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    OMG, that’s so pretty… I love it!!! I’ll be waiting for it to arrive where I live. Seems I’m back getting back to Chanel quads after all (first Raffinement, then this one)

  • Claire June 14, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    Leave it to Chanel to put a twist on classic colors. I like the direction where the quads are heading: from Prelude, to Raffinement, I think this one is a must have.
