Chanel Patine Bronze (840) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium golden bronze with warm undertones and a more olive-gold sheen. The texture was lightly creamy, almost a touch tacky, with good slip and excellent hold as the color went on evenly, smoothly, and with full color coverage in a single layer. The eyeshadow was easy to diffuse along the edges without sheering it out too readily (but it could also be worn as more of a bronzy wash--lost some of the greenish cast, though) and didn't settle into my fine lines/creases as it dried down. Once it set, the eyeshadow stayed on well for 11 hours before creasing very faintly.
