You know I love a bit of Chantecaille so it’s a pleasure for me to introduce a small but exquisite Holiday Collection 2020 from the brand today. In this release, there are two new shades added to the Luminescent Eye Shade lineup and a brand new Le Matte Stylo Lip Crayon range.
Luminescent Eye Shade | £48
These pearlescent, light-catching eyeshadows were first released in Fall 2019 Collection (more details in this blogpost). Each shade represents one of Africa’s most endangered species and Chantecaille helps to support these endangered species across the continent via various organisations.
The formula of these shades is simply outstanding. It’s a gorgeous gel-powder formula infused with sophisticated pure-pearl particles, offering a weightless cream-like finish. With amazing pigmentation, they have such a smooth application and blend like a dream. These shadows are beautiful as a wash of colour yet offer multi-dimensional shimmer with complexity.
There are two new shades.
- Zebra: rose gold
- Crane: smokey aubergine within light purple glitters
I was sent shade Crane which pays tribute to the Grey Crowned Crane, endangered by the illegal pet trade and habitat loss. Through the sales of this shade, Chantecaille are supporting the Rwanda Wildlife Conservation Association.
Crane is a beautiful smokey aubergine shade, complex and sophisticated. As expected, the pigmentation is amazing and it applies beautifully. I find there’s no fall out during application and minimal migration of glitters during wear. The intensity is buildable, you can also use it wet for extra oomph. This is smokey eye done in seconds!
Before testing these new Le Matte Stylo Lip Crayons, I knew they would be non-drying for a matte finish because it is by Chantecaille after all. However I didn’t expect to get totally blown away at first use!
Firstly, I love the packaging, such delicate and exquisite leaf details on the crayon in line with the embossing on the Luminescent Eye Shades. Along with the the sleek silver lettering, they are self-sharpening swivel-up crayons, innovative and convenient.
Infused with sustainably sourced FairWild certified baobab oil, they feel absolutely nourishing and hydrating on. Also being lip crayons, they are super easy to use, simply line and fill! I’m amazed how weightless the formula is! I literally forget that I’m wearing lipsticks. Furthermore, they have a gliding texture that allow them to glide effortlessly over my lips, no tugging. The finish is a velvety, soft matte that is über comfortable to wear.
- Snapdragon: a soft peachy pink
- Lobelia: an orange red
- Meadowsweet: nude pink
- Aster: a sophisticated bright rose
Out of the four shades available, I have shades Meadowsweet and Lobelia. If you’re looking for a MLBB nude pink then Meadowsweet is for you whereas Lobelia is a brightening bold orange red that definitely would turn heads. Lobelia is super flattering on my complexion and I also love that it doesn’t make my teeth appear yellow.
Besides the fabulous formula, they would fit in the smallest of clutch for outings, no lip liner needed too!
