Patine Bronze (840)

Chanel Patine Bronze (840) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium golden bronze with warm undertones and a more olive-gold sheen. The texture was lightly creamy, almost a touch tacky, with good slip and excellent hold as the color went on evenly, smoothly, and with full color coverage in a single layer. The eyeshadow was easy to diffuse along the edges without sheering it out too readily (but it could also be worn as more of a bronzy wash–lost some of the greenish cast, though) and didn’t settle into my fine lines/creases as it dried down. Once it set, the eyeshadow stayed on well for 11 hours before creasing very faintly.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.14 oz. - $257.14 Per Ounce

Chanel describes the formula as a “smooth-textured cream shadow [that] glides on effortlessly” and is “long-wearing.” 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.

I love this shade. When I first saw it I thought it looked similar to Tom Ford Platinum but seems more complex. I saw Allana Davison use this about a week ago and she loved it plus it looked beautiful. I am glad it is permanent so that I will have the opportunity to pick it up later.

11-hr wear from a cream eyeshadow??? Oh my god. I’ve never imagined that high-end cream shadows were worth the cost, but this one might just be :O

This is one of the most popular shades in the eyeshadow landscape at the moment – stacks of dupes. But it is a beautiful shade and at least this product, with its excellent rating, is worth the price.

This looks really nice! It’s quite a while since I’ve purchased anything from Chanel (largely because the only local Chanel counter was removed from my local dept. store but also because their shadows have been matched and even “bested” by less pricey companies) but if I could get my hands on this, I would probably buy it in spite of having 3 or 4 dupes.

That greenish cast makes it! Totally worth experimenting with greens and bronzes to see if this look can be replicated at home.
