Chanel Desert Wind (28) Ombre Premiere Laque ($36.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a light-medium, golden taupe with warm undertones and a lightly, sparkling metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer, which could be sheered out to a fairly even wash of color and faint sparkle. It appeared cooler-toned when worn at a higher opacity (almost silvery in its sheen). The texture was lightweight, watery while still being spreadable, and dried down within 15 seconds to fully dried down finish. It wore well for 10 hours without fading, flaking, or creasing on me.
