Rose Lamé (826)
Chanel Rose Lame (826) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a sparkling, light peach with subtle, pink undertones and warmer, golden shimmer and micro-sparkle. The consistency was lightly creamy with a touch of tackiness (when I touched it with my fingertip) that wasn’t too thick or too thin on my lid, so I had no trouble applying it with opaque color coverage in a single layer but it could easily be diffused and buffed out for a sheerer effect if desired. The eyeshadow stayed on well for almost 10 hours before creasing faintly, and there seemed to be just a smidgen of fallout over time.

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.
