Chanel Or Ambre & Noir Ombre Premiere Laques

Or Noir (17)

Chanel Or Noir (17) Ombre Premiere Laque is a deeper black with warmer undertones and flecks of gold, lavender, and silver sparkle throughout. It had semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, and I found it was best applied with a flat, synthetic brush pressed onto the lid for the initial layer. After letting the initial layer dry down, going back in with the included applicator to pat on additional color where higher coverage was desired worked well without disturbing the first layer. The texture was very fluid and thin, which likely was part of why it tended to sheer out initially. It lasted well for nine hours without fading or fallout.

Or Ambre (27)

Chanel Or Ambre (27) Ombre Premiere Laque is a rich, deeper gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which made it easier to work than some of the brand’s other liquid eyeshadows (which are sheerer and may require more manipulation to even out). I also found that was blendable and could be sheered out for a wash of gold shimmer/sparkle, if desired. The texture was lightweight, thin, and very fluid, but it was fairly quick to dry down so it didn’t get into fine lines as it was drying down. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.
