Chantecaille Spring 2017 Launches
The hero launch for me is the trio of Mermaid Matte Eye Colours. While this is an existing formula for Chantecaille, they’ve added three new shades in the perfect line up of neutrals. It’s also a special charity partnership for three different charities supporting Bees, Lions and Elephants (reflecting some of their charity partnerships from the past few years), so 5% of the sale price will be given to the Elephants and Bees Foundation, Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and the Lion Guardians.
Unlike a lot of other mattes, these manage not to be totally flat in colour, but still without a hint of shimmer. The cream texture is very soft and easy to blend and gives excellent pigmentation in just one swipe. Once they’ve dried on the lid, they don’t crease or fade for around 8-10 hours on me (without a primer).
All three shades are incredible wearable. Creamy Lion is perfect for all over the lids as a base, while soft brown Bee and grey-taupe Elephant add a touch of colour and warmth. Although I think their annual animal palettes are incredibly beautiful, these are so much more wearable day to day and I can easily see myself using them all up.
Cream eye shadows of this type do have a tendency to dry out in the pot, but I’ve not experienced this over the past few weeks, although I will report back in another month or two. At £80 for the trio, they’re far from cheap, but almost comparable to Dior/Chanel singles if you’re looking for a justification.
From the two new lip launches I have here, the Matte Chic are the ones I think you really need in your life (in the clear tube). There are so many matte liquid lipsticks around right now that it’s hard to think you could need another one, but I think I can make an exception for Chantecaille! These are two new shades for spring (Marisa, pictured and Jerry, a warm peach) and offer up a pigmented swipe of long-wearing colour with one of the comfiest matte formulas I’ve found. £33 each.
The new collection launches in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled in Fenwicks, Space NK and other Chantecaille stockists.
