Allow me to brighten up your week with this beautiful and collectible collection from Chantecaille! Inspired by the flickering magic of a hummingbird’s colourful wings, the collection consists of fresh, shimmering and sophisticated shades.
Did you know the tiny and beautiful hummingbirds are a symbol of a healthy Amazon? Unfortunately, their magnificent forest home is being threatened by fire and damaged for its natural resources. Therefore protecting it is crucial for the health of the planet and the people who live there.
I’m extremely happy to learn that this limited-edition Lip Chic collection will give back to Amazon Conservation Team (ACT) to support their work preserving the hummingbird’s rainforest habitat and strengthening traditional culture.
The collection comprises of:
- Hummingbird Eye Quartets: Cool and Warm
- Perfect Blur Finishing Powder
- Lip Chic: available in 4 shades
The whole collection is super pretty that I couldn’t stop photographing them. Hope you enjoy all the snaps and scroll down for swatches.
Lip Chic | £38
There are 4 beautiful shades available.
- Coral Bell – Flattering coral pink, love this shade! So fresh and happy!
- Honeysuckle – Beautiful dusty rose, such a wearable MLBB shade
- Lupine – Soft cool pink
- Passion Flower – Bright orange, very flattering on my skin tone
I love the formula of these, balmy and glossy! Infused with hyaluronic acid to hydrate, these Lip Chics feel incredibly comfortable, soft and nourishing on. The shades are sheer with a fresh and chic finish, just as the name suggests! Moreover, the application or re-application is super easy and effortlessly too!
Hummingbird Eye Quartets | £68
The quartets are available in 2 colour ways, warm and cool.
First we have the Cool Quartet house in a corresponding Blue packaging.
- 1 top left: Glowing pink pearl (highlight)
- 2 top right: Soft taupe (base)
- 3 bottom left: Shimmering deep plum (I use it as liner, outer-V shade or lid shade)
- 4 bottom right: Sparkling rose gold (Lid duo-chrome)
The plum shade has intense colour pay off, you can definitely create a smokey eye look with it. The sparkling rose gold duo-chrome shade is stunning!
Then we have the Warm Quartet in the Green packaging. The colour scheme is interesting with the inclusion of the shimmering slate shade.
- 1 top left: A glimmering peach (highlight)
- 2 top right: Matte neutral brown (base)
- 3 bottom left: Cool shimmering slate (liner, outer-V shade and Liz shade)
- 4 bottom right: Chromatic gold with iridescent pink pearl (all-over lid)
The eyeshadows are creamy, pigmented and easy to blend. The base shades helps to ground the duo-chrome shades to prevent fall out. With each palette, the magic happens when you layer the shades (in your desired combinations) resulting in mesmerising multi-dimensional shifts as the light hits, mimicking the iridescent glow of the flickering hummingbird’s wings.
My personal favourite is the Warm Quartet. The cool slate shade is beautiful on the lower lash line!
Perfect Blur Finishing Powder | £76
This powder is a work of art! The design is truly stunning, similar to the Real Bronzes in the summer 2019 collection here.
The light beige gel-powder is ultra fine and super silky to the touch. I love how it smoothes my complexion and imparts a soft-focus finish without looking powdery or cakey. On my combo skin, I can use the powder as my setting powder.
In summary, Chantecaille Hummingbird Bird Collection is incredibly beautiful with a noble cause behind it. I adore the neon packaging featuring different hummingbird species. If you only pick up one item from the collection, I highly recommend one of the Lip Chic lipsticks.
