Let’s flutter into the spring season with the pretty pastels and prismatic shimmer of Chantecaille limited-edition Butterfly Collection! Inspired by the shimmer and splendor of a butterfly’s wings, the collection consists of a Butterfly Eye Quartet shadow palette and 3 limited-edition Lip Chic hues. As always, the limited edition packaging is simply gorgeous, collector-worthy and one to treasure for years to come. Read on for the full details and my thoughts.
Beauty with a cause
More than 15 years ago, Sylvie Chantecaille noticed that the Monarch butterflies had disappeared from her garden. This inspired Chantecaille’s first conservation collection and started their philanthropy partnership programme. With this collection, Chantecaille are supporting the protection of butterflies through Xerces Society and their Pollinator Program – a restoration project that protects the native habitat of butterflies and other pollinators in California’s Central Valley.
Butterfly Eye Quartet | £68
Can we take a moment to admire the packaging! Simply stunning and collectible! The quartet consists of four neutral and wearable shades in 3 finishes, satin, shimmer and chrome Pearl. These shimmering shades are inspired by the brilliant hues and ethereal shimmer of a butterfly’s wings.

- Top right: A triple chrome with pink, green, and gold pearls
- Bottom left: A shimmering peach

The shades are incredibly creamy to the touch, so soft and silky. They are extremely easy to blend that I would just use my fingers to apply. In addition, the colour payoff is superb, truly a pleasure to use. All shades are wearable that I can effortlessly create a number of looks with fresh and spring vibes. I love using the rose gold or peach shade as a wash of colour then pop a little of the chrome shade for an extra oomph. Talking about the chrome shade, I am obsessed with it! The chrome effect is divine, it literally would make anything pop.
Lip Chic | £38
If you want an easy to use, hydrating, smoothing and lightweight lipstick, Chantecaille Lip Chic is a must-try. They are infused with hyaluronic for softer and plumper lips.
In this collection, there are 3 new shades Hyssop, Peach Blossom, Clover. They are all named after the flowers that butterflies are attracted to and pollinate.
- Clover: Neutral pink
- Peach Blossom: Warm toned peach
- Hyssop: Rich nude
The three shades are pretty and sweet, they play well with the luminous and playful eye looks from the Butterfly Eye Quartet. As said, they are super easy to apply, balmy and comfortable to wear with lovely pigmentation.
There you have it, such an exquisite and pretty collection! I loved learning about the importance of butterflies on our food system and all ecosystems too!
