Chanel Obscur (816) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep black with neutral-to-cool undertones and barely-there bluish-teal pearl. It looked more matte on the lid than it did shimmery, but I think that satiny sheen helped it blend out more smoothly. The consistency was smooth, creamy with noticeable slip but did not feel greasy or wet to the touch. It applied well when pressed and lightly pulled on the lid for all over coverage, but it was harder to diffuse and blend out the edges as it dried down quickly and had a tendency to look uneven and ragged along the edges, even when I worked quickly. Once on, the eyeshadow did not budge or fade over a 14 hour period.
