Reasons for Chanel Patine Bronze: The shimmer is finer and less metallic, which can make it more flattering on more textured skin. I also find that it has a softer look, although the colors are very similar (especially when they are faded out). Chanel’s formula is also easier to apply from the start than a dye detergent and is hard to overdo as it comes in a glass format (no risk of over-squeezing!). For those who prefer sheer, wash-like effects or a more radiant finish (rather than metallic), Chanel does both well. The formula lasts longer with me before it also wrinkles.
Reasons for Sydney Grace I don’t know: It has a bit more depth and fullness in its base color, and went a bit further than Patine Bronze, so it was more pigmented (although both were opaque) and slightly harder to fade out – like having to be careful to apply the smallest amount around to shear it out. As a result, I Don’t Know works especially well as an opaque product and is scattered around the edges. The finish is also a little brighter and stronger; The richness can also work better on medium black and darker skin tones.
Editor’s Choice: Sydney Grace I don’t know! While I definitely love Chanel’s formula and find it lasts a little longer, I prefer higher coverage and don’t need the ability to get that much out … and I probably wouldn’t finish either, so I’d rather spend significantly less and be in be able to get a few shades of a great cream colored eyeshadow formula if I wanted to.
Bottom line: Both formulas are more forgiving in that they do not have any safe-to-stir desiccations, so once dry they can be mixed and manipulated (to a certain extent). I think Patine Bronze is better for those who want a little less metallic (but still shimmery) and prefer sheer looks – and obviously not worrying about the budget! – while I don’t know it’s better for someone who prefers more metallic finishes and / or or more opaque formulas. They are both fantastic colors and formulas so I think finish and price are the biggest differences. The latter obviously depends heavily on your own budget or lack of it.
