Verderame (824)

Chanel Verderame (824) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a blackened teal with subtle, warmer green undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, though it wasn’t fully opaque. It could be built up as long as I waited for the initial layer to dry down fully. The cream eyeshadow had a smooth, almost sponge-like consistency that felt wet to the touch but set fast enough not to settle into lines or gather in my creases. The deeper color made it less easy to use as a sheer wash of color, as the base tended to look patchy when I sheered it out. On me, it lasted well for 14 hours before creasing 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.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

This is Swoon Territory for me. I have a few dupes but they are much brighter and I like the smokier, “sludgier” tone of this. If I can’t find the NYX Prismatic dupe, I might just have to bite the bullet and get this one!

I totally get what you mean by “sludgier,” which I can’t say is a word I would have thought of on my own, lol!

This shade is so curious. It seems to swatch differently depending on one’s skintone and undertone. On me (fair to medium with pink undertone), it’s a cross between a bright teal and sea moss, with a black base noticable if I move the swatch back and forth under light. If I apply the faintest amount using my finger, I can achieve a very light grey (the formula sets uber fast). If I apply using a brush or finger, it looks like a bright, wearable teal. Add the Mare-Chiaro vibrant green Stylo Yeux Eyeliner and it is a stunning eyelook for Spring.

Christine, when I swatch the shade, there’s a shiny look to it. When applied to the lid, it can be shiny/metallic at first but seems to dry down to a matte. Did you find an application method that preserves the shiny/metallic look? (I’ve not tried it using a wet brush.)

I still see a pearly finish when I have it on the lid (the photo of the swatch was taken a few minutes after application to wait for it to dry a bit!). I’ve only used a flat, synthetic brush to apply this one for lid application!

That’s good to know, Christine. I may be affecting the finish by tapping a layer with my finger to deepen the shade over what was laid down by a flat synthetic brush. I’m wearing the shade today and it is a gorgeous teal on my eyelids.

You always overrate chanel, even if the products behave poorly, such as this one and the navy one (too much for a C). Do they pay you that much? Don’t think we don’t notice.

You can see at the top of the post that I purchased this product, actually! Chanel has never paid for a review (I don’t do paid reviews, period), never sponsored a post (like a giveaway, info on a sale, and so forth), etc. Sponsored posts are always clearly marked as sponsored.

If you experienced something different with a product, I have always welcomed readers to share their input and we built an entire review system so that you can write a review yourself. This product had good pigmentation and lasted 14 hours without creasing on me, both aspects which contribute to the overall score, and I can only rate based my personal experience.

Since this is your first comment and perhaps you are new here, I encourage you to look into my 700+ reviews on Chanel 🙂 I’ve given plenty of Ds and Fs to Chanel over the years: https://www.temptalia.com/swatches/?brand=12701&sorting=editor_asc

I even distinctly remember giving their holiday palette a F last year – https://www.temptalia.com/chanel-trait-de-caractere-eyeshadow-palette-review-photos-swatches/

Again, if you’ve tried this shade and had a different experience with this or any product, I’m sure readers would love to hear about it. There are products that work terribly for me that some readers love and vice versa. Makeup, because it goes on someone’s skin, can perform differently on two people and neither of those experiences is wrong.

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!
