Mystère is definitely a fall palette. The shades, described by Chanel as golden khaki, golden ivory, matte khaki, and silver taupe, complement each other beautifully - even if their color descriptions aren't spot on.
I think Chanel edited the eye collection for fall with precision. You can use the new Khaki Mascara, shown below, on your lashes, and line your eyes with the beautiful Khaki Prècieux Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer, shown at the bottom of this feature - my pitiful in-store "C" showing it applied lightly.
The silvery taupe is worth the entire price of admission. It's the type of shade that leaves me speechless, beyond the first OMG. Although I didn't come home with it today, it will be joining my makeup museum next week, I'm sure (I needed to come home and check my balance...hate this newfound, frugal makeup budget). Did you know that Mystère was available last month on Chanel's Web site? Where was I? Sleeping at the keyboard, no doubt.
Mystère is, in my humble opinion, one of the best quads Chanel has introduced in the last three years. Teaming it with the Khaki Mascara and a golden khaki liner was pure Chanel genius. It's a limited-edition Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow, so if you are interested, don't waste any time securing yours. Nicki Hashemi, Chanel representative at Neiman Marcus, would be glad to help you. She's a doll - and a talented artist. You can call Nicki at (202) 966-9700, extension 2236.
The Khaki Prècieux Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer closes this feature with a "C." I hope to add it to my collection. It's a golden khaki - totally different from 2011's Khaki Platine. If you are as much of a khaki fan as I am, you may have trouble leaving it behind at the store. I'm sorry my indoor swatch photo isn't enticing. The liner is.
Update: It's mine. I'm going to save it for fall. It will be hard to keep my hands off it.
