Electrum Lamé (905)
Chanel Electrum Lame (905) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a pale, white gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that was blendable and easy to work with, though there was a bit of fallout due. If I used a dampened brush, I was able to get opaque coverage in one layer. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

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.
