Noir Petrole (812)

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 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.

Pourpre Profond (810)

Chanel Pourpre Profond (810) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a dark burgundy with warm, red undertones and a satin shimmer. It had mostly opaque coverage in a single layer, and just getting a little more product on the brush took it to full coverage. The texture was lightweight, thin, moderately emollient, and applied evenly to bare lids but was hard to diffuse perfectly as it dried down shortly after applying it. On me, I did not see any signs of fading, creasing, or flaking after fourteen hours of wear.

Scintillance (804)

Chanel Scintillance (804) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, peachy beige with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, but it was buildable to full coverage with a second layer patted on top. The formula dried down quickly, so it did not have time to gather in the creases as it dried down and was more amenable to a second layer. The consistency was smooth, fairly blendable, and sat well on the lid. This shade wore well for fourteen hours with no signs of fading.

While I love the eye look you did using these, they sound a bit too fussy to me. The drying down in such a way that they can’t be buffed out once set would bug me to no end. I’ll stick to ColourPop’s formula, as it remains malleable for awhile.

I think if you just use one shade and work one eye at a time, it’ll work out, but it’s definitely not going to have the same blendability/time that ColourPop Super Shock Shadows have. I find CP’s to act more like a powder when they set so they always seem slightly blendable!

What did you use to apply the shadow? I have the Illusion Ombre Velvet and have yet to find a really good way to apply it. I’ve used my fingers, the sponge applicator it comes with, and a brush and none of them works very well.

I just used a flat, synthetic eye brush (I think MAC 242 here) – nothing special! My fingers are too big to use the included applicators!

Beautiful eye look Christine.
The thing with these little pots is that they aren’t stand alone shades – you have to use other colours with them to make a look work. If you have to get out a couple of different little pots then you may as well use a quad or a palette.
The shades are weird colours for a stand alone pot – very basic, in every other palette. Plus they’re tricky to apply. Lots of negatives here.

I think some of the basic shades would work well as a base for various looks or for a one-and-done lid look – Scintillance would be nice for improving brightness in some shades!

Hi Christine, how would these compare in texture and application to Tom Ford or Charlotte Tilbury cream shadows?

Chanel’s website suggests layering a powder shadow over a cream shadow. Given the quick dry down time, would this be less fussy? (I hate to admit that I typically use 1-2 shadows for an eye look.) Your eye look is masterful!!

They dry down a lot faster and feel really set, they are not as creamy. The texture is like, 25% Illusion d’Ombre and 75% traditional cream to me.

I had the most trouble blending/using one of these in the crease, so using one or more of these on the lid and then a separate powder eyeshadow in the crease would be easier for sure.

Christine, you mention “included applicators” – any chance of a photo of what those look like (if they’re too small for your fingers, they must be Lilliputian-sized! I dunno – looking at these has made me want to get out my Clarins Ombre Matte shadows. I’ve got 3 of them (as well as the Iridescente ones) and they are a delight to work with and blend and they also cost a fair bit less. It’s always nice – that combo of “better quality/lower price” 😉

I didn’t get one, unfortunately! I meant but lost the thought when I realized the ingredients were different by shade (I think possibly more by finish) and retrieved boxes to photograph the lists.

It’s small with a dome-shaped brush – Chanel has a photo of it here! I have longer fingers than average – my palm + fingers are actually as long as my husband’s but my fingers are much longer with the palm being smaller in comparison.

I’ve gone through this review three times looking for details about your look. I want to know what you’ve got on your cheeks.

Hi Sam,
