Chanel Trait de Caractere Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

Trait de Caractere

Chanel Trait de Caractere Eyeshadow Palette ($70.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a smoky, earthy set of shades housed in a black compact. I wanted to like it, as it was a more unusual set of shades for the holiday season, but the formula is just so powdery, prone to sheering out, and short-wearing that it left me incredibly disappointed. More often than not, Chanel’s 5-pan palettes are unimpressive, and it always makes me wonder why they didn’t just make a quad instead, where the formula is stronger.

Trait de Caractere #1

Trait de Caractere #1 is a soft, dirty beige with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that was just a smidgen powdery in the pan. It applied evenly and lasted for six and a half hours on me.

Trait de Caractere #2

Trait de Caractere #2 is a pale gold with warm, yellow undertones and a soft, pearl finish. It semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer but was moderately dusty and felt quite dry in the pan, so the eyeshadow sheered out too readily on the lid and looked like a sheer wash of shimmer with little color in practice. What little I could see seemed to last for five hours.

Trait de Caractere #3

Trait de Caractere #3 is a dark, reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not build up well but actually seemed to diffuse and sheer out on the lid. The more I applied, the more product I had underneath my eye rather than on it, even when applied over an eye primer. The texture was drier, dusty, and wasn’t the easiest to blend out. It lasted for six hours on me.

Trait de Caractere #4

Trait de Caractere #4 is a deep olive with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was so powdery–there was so much product kicked up in the pan–and by the time I patted off the excess on my brush, there was only a sheer wash of color on the lid. It was impossible to keep it at even medium coverage as the product sheered out so much by gentle blending just around the edges. The eyeshadow wore well for six hours on me.

Trait de Caractere #5

Trait de Caractere #5 is a deep green with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had sheer coverage, which did not build up at all and still looked like an atrocity over primer or a tacky base. The texture was loose, dry, and messy to work with as little sticks to the skin but plenty of it drops below the eyelid! What little transferred to the lid lasted for–at best–five hours.
