Bronze Antique (32)

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.

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.

Carbone (20)

Chanel Carbone (20) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a dark, grayish black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation–just shy of opaque–with a soft, powdery texture that had some excess product kick up in the pan when used. It had a tendency to sheer out slightly when I blended it, and the edges were not as softly diffused as I expected. It wore well for six and a half hours on me before creasing.

Poudre d'Or (34)

Chanel Poudre d’Or (34) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a bright, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied beautifully to bare skin and did not sheer out too readily on the lid. The texture was smooth, dense, and almost cream-like without any dustiness. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Titane (38)

Chanel Titane (38) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a soft, golden green with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. The tetxure was soft in the pan, smooth without kicking up excess product, and adhered well without primer and did not sheer out too quickly. The color stayed on for just over seven hours on me.

Verde (18)

Chanel Verde (18) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, dark forest green with warm, brown undertones and fine, emerald green pearl. It had more of a satin finish on the lid, though it appeared a bit more shimmery to my eye in the pan and initially swatched. The texture was soft, dusty, and prone to sheering out on the lid. It was harder to apply and blend out this shade for even, diffused coverage as the brown base always looked a bit patchy. It started to crease on me after six and a half hours of wear.

No, it’s because I’m completely dumb and cannot manage to copy and paste numbers properly. It should be fixed now – I’m so sorry!

These look okay – especially Carbone and Titane – but I’ve got dupes for all of them. I was sure I’d want Titane but I already have MAC Silver Sun and I’ve also just submitted Nars Pygar as a dupe as they look to me to be awfully similar (I don’t have Titane, obviously, but I do have Silver Sun and I find it to be very close to Pygar, as is Clarins Silver Green “cream” eyeshadow).

So sorry – I am a moron! I will fix that right now. I’m so sorry again for the unnecessary confusion and unprofessionalism in my post this morning!

Don’t be so hard on yourself, Christine. You are neither a moron nor unprofessional. I continue to be amazed at how you keep it all straight, including the massive swatch gallery, with minimal errors at all. These issues are brought up out of respect for you and reliance on your site and opinion.

You’re very kind, Tracey! I’m very aware of my shortcomings and know where I disappoint myself and some readers on a daily basis – with these little mistakes – and even though I go through and check the post, I almost always miss something. I appreciate everyone letting me know so that I can fix them, though!

Without any shortcomings we’d not be humane. I think you make very, very, VERY few mistakes. Don’t be so hard on yourself. You are doing such a good hard job, and I appriciate all your efforts so much.

Hi Christine, you sell yourself far too short. You may feel disappointed because you set high standards for yourself but know you certainly don’t disappoint your readers, let alone on a daily basis. If anything, it’s to the contrary. It’s really no more an issue than, “Thanks, I’ve updated the page”, “Good catch, I’ll make that change” or “Ughh, I thought I made that change. Fixing now”. Knowing your shortcomings (not my favorite term) is to know how to compensate for them (does not include calling yourself a moron), so you can focus on your considerable strengths.

There are no swatches of Chanel Poudre d’Or (34) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow instead Chanel Titane (38) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow is swatched twice.

Mattes are so difficult. I get what ‘feel’ Chanel was going for in Carbone, but it missed because the consistency should have been more smooth, like Mac’s Typographic. MAC’s is a very ‘flat’ charcoal (which is fine) and I think Chanel was going for a somewhat ‘shinier’ charcoal (one w/dimension, depth, whatever you want to call it), yet still remain matte. It’s was a wonderful idea, but it didn’t translate into their formula. I’d call it a prototype for an outstanding carbon black that could have been, with some tweaking, a $30 wow.

Am glad to see reviews of these eyeshadows. I’m quite curious about Titane, so pleased it received a solid grade. I also take to heart your comments about the shadows on quad format vs the new singles.

Christine, as Chanel is promoting this collection as layering shadows to create your own look, I wonder if you might comment on how well a cream shadow layers with a powder shadow, as in the ‘looks’ Chanel suggests online. Do they perform better together than separately? I’m thinking of TF’s Sphinx when the color shift is better seen layered over a different color (for me, it’s CT’s Marie Antoinette) than worn on its own.

The cream eyeshadows don’t need powder to perform better, since they already last a long time, therefore there’s no improvement with respect to the cream eyeshadows, other than if you used a powder eyeshadow to soften the edges but the same is true with any half decent powder eyeshadow. The powder eyeshadows will be more opaque applied over a cream eyeshadow, eyeshadow primer, or another base and would definitely last longer. I have not layered a cream eyeshadow on top of these powder eyeshadows, only the powder over the cream eyeshadow.

The dusty/thinner texture of some shades will sometimes show where one texture ends and another begins, depending on how thick or thin your layer of cream eyeshadow is. It’s the same effect/issue I have with some of the creamier, denser powder eyeshadows and then trying to blend a thinner matte next to it – they just don’t overlap well!

I’m taking your observations in, and to heart, Christine as I head to the Chanel counter this week. I think I’m going to pick out a few shades to see if/how I like the formula, with your reviews close at hand. Thanks for the insight above!! Super helpful!!

Poudre d’Or is perfect for a brilliant yellow -gold shade, especially to use mid-lid in a halo look! LOVE!
Titane is a beauty, as well. Having CP Game Changer, I’m good in that particular shade. But if I didn’t, I would love to get this one as it seems a bit more complex looking.

Yikes, I am so sad!! For $30, I expect an A rating on all the shades. Especially bummed about Titane and Verde 🙁 And at $30 a single, better “value” to go with their quads, which seem to have a better formula too

Yeah, for $30, nothing about these inspires me. I’d rather put $60 toward one of Chanel’s eyeshadow quads – at least you’ll get four shades (though in terms of weight, there’s a huge discrepancy, though Chanel quad formula seems more of the “baked” variety that is often lighter than typical powder yet seems to take up similar volume!).

Well, that’s a let down. The only ones I wanted are Poudre D’or and Titane and those are OK. But after swatching them in the store, I was like, “meh.” I’m not surprised at the reviews.

Thanks for such thorough reviews Christine. I love Bronze Antique, Poudre D’or and Titane. I purchased two others in the store but I will eventually order one of the three I just mentioned probably Poudre D’or first I will make sure if I order it online I will order through your link. Carbone and Verde I don’t like at all they weren’t pretty even in person.

For the price, they are disappointing, but the shade colours are lovely. I liked Titane and Verde – but excellent dupes of those can be found in the Wonderful palette by Tarina Tarantino and Stila in the Garden palette.

I played with these while at Nordstroms today. They were okay – but nothing earth shattering. For that price point, I want something a bit more buttery!

Titane is such a nice colour. I like Verde and Poudre d’Or as well.
If they had got A+’s I might have persuaded me to get at least one, as is, no, an easy pass.

I bought the purple one, now I am wondering if I should return it. It’s an okay shadow but I don’t feel it’s worth the hefty price tag. Very disappointed.

Christine, I bought the Chanel quad in codes elegants 274 and you gave a very good review on that. However on me it’s a glittery mess!! I am so disappointed 🙁 what brush did you use to apply the shadows? Help please!

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
