Chantecaille Spring 2011

Chantecaille, Sea Turtles paletteImages of Chantecaille’s Sea Turtle palette (the latest in their philanthropic palette series) leaked online long before product had arrived at counter — causing something of an internet sensation. At last, I have swatches to accompany that product preview.

The Sea Turtles palette includes eyeshadows in a shimmery beige, a shimmery warm, soft cocoa brown, and a shimmery blue-green charcoal (intended to be used as a liner, I think). I swatched the blush both lightly and heavily; it is pink with gold shimmer.

The palette is $79 (of which 5% goes to eco-charity WIDECAST, which works to protect sea turtles in the Caribbean), and once the pans are used up, the compact itself is refillable. The contrasting shade you see in the product image is just overspray; the pans are monochromatic under that top layer.

With all the hubbub over the Sea Turtles palette, you may not have known that Chantecaille also released three new shades of their Hydra Chic lipstick for spring.

Hydra Chics are medium-to-full coverage lipsticks said to provide 6 hours of moisturizing wear. They’re $30 each, and come in a skinny silver tube. Click here to see the original four shades.

Canna is coral; Aster is a warm pinky rose-red; Willow is mauvey.

    *angels singing* The turtles! Mine are supposed to arrive tomorrow. The colors are off on this computer, but I can’t wait to swatch mine in person! If it’s not $78 worthy, I’ll have to send it back though. :(

    @erin: it makes a beaaautiful nude eye and the blush is to die for. I’ll be shocked if you return it!

    If you’ve never used Chantecaille products, you’re missing out. This palette is my absolute favorite neutral one. The brown is so soft and beautiful and the green/black, while designed to be a liner (and a gorgeous one at that) can also be used in the outer corner for evenings. I’d been looking for a green like this forever… very wearable and great for brown-eyed gals. The blush is heavenly and a highlighter is not necessary as it’s sheen is pearlescent. I know it seems pricey, but at $20 per pan, it’s no more expensive than Nars and even cheaper than UD as you get a lot of product. This palette is refillable too!
