Chanel Gemme Doree (844) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium, sunshine-yellow gold with warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly to my lid. The consistency was dense, cream-like, but had enough slip (and wasn't tacky to the point of becoming problematic) that it was easy to work with whether I wanted it as an all-over lid shade, a base, or as an eyeliner. It dried down to a crease- and fade-resistant result for 12 hours, and then it started to crease very, very faintly on me.
