Douceur et Serenite (378)
Chanel Douceur et Serenite (378) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow is a smokier, purple-plum color story that includes two matte shades and two satin-to-pearl shades. There was some variety in depth and finish, so I could see lighter and darker looks, though I expect looks to lean a little smoky overall. All four shades had higher coverage, were blendable, and picked up readily with a dry brush, and they lasted around eight hours on me.
Douceur et Serenite #1
Douceur et Serenite #1 is a very light, lavender-taupe with cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was incredibly smooth and finely-milled, but it was lightly powdery. It had opaque color coverage that wasn’t prone to sheering out, which was a happy surprise. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.
Douceur et Serenite #2
Douceur et Serenite #2 is a soft black with a satin finish and neutral undertones. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, while the texture was smooth, finely-milled without being powdery, which made it easy to apply and blend out as desired. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.
Douceur et Serenite #3
Douceur et Serenite #3 is a light-medium purple with soft, warm undertones and a pearl finish. It had rich color coverage with a soft, smooth texture that was finely-milled and blendable, though I found it looked more semi-matte to satin when applied and blended out. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Douceur et Serenite #4
Douceur et Serenite #4 is a medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation paired with a smooth, finely-milled consistency that was dense (so not powdery) but easy to pick up with a dry brush and blended out beautifully. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.
