I fell in love with everything I swatched last weekend, and I think it’s because I started with Chantecaille’s spring collection. This spring sees another limited edition, nature conservation item from Chantecaille. Les Dauphins palette is $77 (is it me, or is Chantecaille becoming more affordable?), and it is sinfully gorgeous.
The mirrored compact contains four powder duos: a highlighting eyeshadow duo (white pink and very pale pink), a brown eyeshadow duo, a grey (or very cool brown) eyeshadow duo, and a two-toned blush meant to be swirled together. I also tried swirling together the lightest eyeshadow pan as a potential highlighter.
The palette is also refillable. Turn it over and you’ll see a pinhole under each pan, to push out and replace empties (or swap shades) with ease. And 5% of the purchase price will be donated to an organization working to protect Greece’s dolphins.
And here’s what a well loved tester looks like:
There are also two new Lip Chics for spring: China Rose and Bourbon Rose. At $30 apiece, Lip Chics are definitely a luxury, but the formula is delightful. These lipsticks are unscented, sheer shades that feel like a deliciously heavy balm on your lips. I swatched the two newcomers next to two familiar shades for comparison; click here to see the other Lip Chic shades, except for Heirloom, which is here.
