Chantecaille Holiday 2009: Les Petales

Chantecaille, holiday, 2009, Les Petales, Reve de Rose, promoChantecaille’s holiday color collection is surprisingly… well edited this year. It includes just three limited edition rose compacts: a highlighter, translucent finishing powder, and lipgloss. Each one is $36.

The promotional images look like gold compacts, but the three testers that appeared at my counter this past weekend were brown metal. I don’t like or dislike them; they’re just rather different from what I was expecting. [EDIT: it seems the testers are packaged differently from the product for sale.] Chantecaille, holiday, 2009, Les Petales, Reve de Rose, Voile de Rose, Lumiere de Rose, rose compacts Lumiere de Rose is a pink highlighter — more subtle than it looks in this swatch. As always, I swatched heavily to convey the color. Voile de Rose is a translucent finishing powder (also swatched here heavily), and I believe it’s the same product as appeared in the Butterfly collection a few years ago (Les Papillons Poudre Delicate in Veil).

I think Reve de Rose is the winner of the trio; it’s a really gorgeous rose lipgloss that will be amazing on the majority of the lipgloss-wearing population. I know, it’s in a pot. But the color might just be worth it. If you like this one, don’t wait to buy it.

    >Oooooh. These look pretty, I think you're right though – the gloss is the winner in the collection. Not sure I want to spend $36 on a gloss even if the compact is so gorgeous.

    Thanks for posting these!!!

    >I heard a rumor that the testers may be a different color from the actual product??

    >Yup. I got the lipgloss today. The actual product casing is gold, not bronze(ish) like the testers are.
