Chanel Blurry Grey (322) Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Blurry Grey (322)

Chanel Blurry Grey (322) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, seemingly permanent (it’s not listed as limited edition on the brand’s website) quad featuring cooler, smokier neutrals with two mattes and two more shimmery shades. I found that the longevity was a little shy of average, so I’d encourage those interested to be sure to use primer underneath to minimize the chance of fading, but the eyeshadows were pigmented, blendable, and easy to work with.

Blurry Grey #1

Blurry Grey #1 is a light taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It appeared darker (and grayer) applied than it did in the pan but had opaque coverage. The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and a smidgen powdery in the pan but applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading slightly.

Blurry Grey #2

Blurry Grey #2 is a deep taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out without trouble. The texture was soft, smooth, and not too firmly nor too softly pressed. It wore well for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Blurry Grey #3 is a muted, plummy taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a satin sheen. The color coverage was opaque in one layer, while the eyeshadow had a smooth, velvety texture that was silky and finely-milled without being powdery. It applied evenly and blended out nicely on my skin. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

It had rich color payoff that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even application that blended easily along the edges. The texture was soft, a smidgen powdery in the pan (but not prone to sheering out or having fallout during application), and finely-milled.
