Chanel Cool Gold Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “luminous gold.” It’s a medium, yellow gold with a frosted, metallic finish and warm undertones. NARS Corcovado is brighter, yellower. Maybelline Gold Rush is darker, more molten. MAC Goldmine is less frosted and a powder. Chanel Pearl River #3 is similar but a powder. Chanel Blazing Gold is very similar but a powder. OCC Triptych is darker and also a powder. bareMinerals Remix is browner. Make Up For Ever #10 is yellower, less orange. Inglot #403 is yellower. See comparisons swatches.

This is a new formula for Chanel, and it’s described as lightweight, long-wearing, and designed to “[highlight] eyes with gleaming color” as well as “[create] a shimmering veil on lids.” I bought three when the collection initially launched, and Cool Gold was the first one I tried putting to the test. Swatched on skin, it had semi-opaque color when layered and semi-sheer when applied in a single pass, which seemed to align with the idea of a veil of shimmer on the lids. It’s a very soft, shimmery look. The consistency is soft and silky, and it feels water-like when applied; it even feels cool and has a lot of slip, but it doesn’t actually feel that movable on the lid. It blends well, but it doesn’t slide around–not even initially when creamier products can sometimes instantly settle into the creases. After eight hours of wear, it held up decently, but there was noticeable fall out (which was unexpected) and some light creasing on the inner lid (but not in the outer crease).

Aww I’m so sorry to hear you get creasing and fallout from this one! I have 4 (not Cool Gold though), and all of them wear like iron on me! I am particularly attached to Moon River 😉

Luckily, I didn’t experience any problem with fallout. I just love formula of these, they are so refreshing on the lids when you put them on.

do you generally get creasing with regular eyeshadow (no primer)? how do these compare to the mac paint pots and maybelline colour tattoos?

Many eyeshadows last 8-9 hours on me, really good ones last 10 hours. A lot of cream eyeshadows last 14+ hours on me, but it can depend on the formula and shade. The texture, payoff, and wear are all different from both Paint Pots and Color Tattoos.

I’m not a fan of gold on my eyes, so I passed on this one, but I did get the blue, pink and platinum and I love them. I will go back and get the green one too. I’ve been wearing them over my regular Bare Minerals primer and I have had no creasing whatsoever. The blue is so vibrant, it’s absolutely amazing!

Great colour but I have been disappointed with Chanel quality so many times that i’ve stopped buying that brand.
