Chanel Talpa (14) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was finely-milled, soft, and lightly dusty in the pan, but it adhered well to bare skin when patted on. I had no trouble diffusing and blending out the edges. It had great pigmentation that lasted for seven hours on me.

The formula is described as a “richly-pigmented” and “longwearing.” There are 16 shades available, and I’ve tried eight of them and have found that most are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage with soft, blendable textures that are often on the dustier side. Some shades were prone to sheering out on the lid and applied best by layering and building up the color than trying to pack it on. They lasted between six and seven and a half hours on me, which was below average. I think Chanel’s formula in their quads is better overall, as they are not as dusty but still are blendable. I think the quad formula also sat better on the lids.

Terre Brulee (806)

Chanel Terre Brulee (806) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark coppery brown with warm, yellow undertones and a golden shimmer with a subtle touch of gold sparkle. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to opaque coverage with just a touch more product patted on top, while it was also blendable to semi-sheer coverage if desired. The texture was smooth, thin, creamy without being too slippery, and seemed to take a bit longer to dry down than other shades in the line-up. The latter made it easier to diffuse and blend out some of the edges. Once applied, it lasted for 14 hours without any changes.

Chanel describes the formula as a “smooth-textured cream shadow [that] glides on effortlessly” and is “long-wearing.” There are eight shades (view swatches) released with one (Obscur) being limited edition. Overall, the consistency has moderate slip–emollient but not greasy or overly wet in feel–and feels more like a traditional cream eyeshadow than Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombres. They go on as a thin layer but have fairly good pigmentation. The formula dried down quite quickly leaving little time for blending or diffusing edges, even when working one eye at a time, which was where I struggled. I think some of them tended to work better as lid colors and using something else for a more diffused/blended out crease color. They did, however, wear impeccably for as long as fourteen hours on me–no creasing, fading, or flaking.

Chanel Bronze Antique (32) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was smooth, soft, and blendable but was somewhat dusty in the pan and prone to sheering out a bit on the lid. There were also a few larger sparkles that seemed to spread away from the color itself and resulted in a bit of fallout. It had opaque pigmentation, though, and applied evenly to bare skin. This shade lasted for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.

Chanel Lilas d’Or (808) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with subtle, cooler undertones and warmer, golden pearl. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was only buildable to medium coverage, but it seemed creamier than other shades, so it was also more forgiving during application as it took a bit longer to dry down. I had more time to work with it, and it seemed more blendable in practice as a result. I could see it working best as a one-and-done lid color or as an eyeshadow base. It wore well for 14 hours, and even at that point, it did not look any different.

Chanel Noir Petrole (812) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep, smoky brown with subtle, warm undertones and barely-there red pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage. The consistency was smooth, thin but not too thin, and dried down quickly. I found it hard to blend the color out evenly and felt like it was best used as a base rather than a standalone eyeshadow as it was hard to get it to appear even at less than opaque coverage. It was still going strong after twelve hours of wear.

Chanel Medium Light Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour ($58.00 for 0.42oz.) is a light-medium, yellowed peach with a satin sheen. The pigmentation was buildable from semi-sheer to medium coverage (three layers). The texture was very silky and finely-milled, but it was also powdery and kicked up a fair amount of powder in the pan. This also led to it being harder to apply on drier skin (like my arm) as the product did not adhere that well; it was less of a concern over my cheeks (more normal) nor when applied over freshly applied liquid foundation. I could see this shade working as a bronzer on lighter complexions, as only a faint sheen showed on my light-medium skin tone (easier for me to see it in person than in photos), but it could be used as a highlighting powder on light and light-medium, warmer skin tones without adding much color (if any!). The product wore well for eight hours on me.

Chanel described the formula as a “powder bronze and highlighter enriched with illuminating pigments” with a “buildable, soft texture.” The brand noted to select a shade lighter than your skin tone for highlighting and darker than your skin tone for bronzing–so it was less of a multi-tasking product and more that one could use it either as a highlighting powder or as a bronzing powder. I think you can get a little illumination and subtle warmth if you choose a shade similar to your skin tone, though, which is the closest to having the best of both worlds.
