Additional makeup used - check below.

Part of the Chanel Fall 2013 Makeup Collection (Superstition), eyeshadow quad in Mystere is the perfect smokey eye quad.  The colors included are deep, dark and shimmering - an almost black khaki with golden shimmer, a shimmery ivory, a satin taupe, and a matte deep taupe-khaki that looks almost greyish brown.  The quad is described as khaki based, but depending on the lighting it can look almost taupe/brown/black.  The formula is the US version - square pans, not baked - and all 4 colors feel quite soft and pigmented.  Scroll on for photos, swatches, and more.

Chanel Eyeshadow Quad - Mystere - Fall 2013 Makeup Collection - Swatches/Looks

On swatching, the colors are all quite pigmented.  The creamy ivory is the sheerest of the four.  There are larger shimmer/glitter particles in this, and the color would look nice as a highlight or even as a sheer wash of color patted on to the lids.  The darkest color (top left) is supposedly a dark khaki with gold shimmer mixed in.  The "khaki" can look blackish-brown depending on the light.  The shimmer in this is beautiful - subtle yet definitely not invisible, more obvious under artificial light and/or direct sunlight.  The lower left taupe/greyish brown is satin textured, soft, and well pigmented - easy to blend too.  The lower right shade - a matte-with-a-sheen khaki (??) that looks more a dark brown-grey is very pigmented, soft, and easy to blend.  It does feel powdery and can cause fall out, so be sure to tap the excess off the brush before use.  Here's a look at the swatches - the colors look less khaki and more cool brown-greys on my hand, but as I said earlier, under warmer lighting, some of the khaki tones do show through.

Chanel eyeshadow quad in Mystere is a nice pick if you like darker eye makeup looks.  The colors are well-coordinated and would be perfect for cooler fall/winter months.  I won't call the shades/quad unique - with a little looking around I am sure it would be easy to find dupes for each of the colors.  The powder/nonbaked formula feels quite good, and there is hardly any fall out with the colors except for the matte khaki/brown that needs a bit of care while applying.  The one flaw in the quad is - going by the promo information I read online - I was expecting more of a khaki base to the colors, but these seem to lean more brownish taupe than khaki.  That apart, this is definitely a  palette I will find a lot of use for.

  1. Taupe brown and dark eye looks, this quad is calling my name! Thanks so much for the great review. It looks stunning on you as always. What shade have you used for the lower water line? Do you combine this quad with the Khaki Stylo Eyeliner which comes with the collection?

    1. Hi Sara! Thank you!! I have used Urban Decay pencil eyeliner in Smoke along waterline. I didn't buy the khaki liner - I have an older pencil Khaki Dore and I guess it's sort of similar. I haven't tried the two together, but am guessing it would bring out more of the khaki and definitely would work really well together.
