The Chantecaille’s Fall 2019 makeup collection is blessing us with earthy hues and also doing its part to help six beloved endangered species.
Cue “The Circle of Life” soundtrack, Chantecaille just dropped its new Fall 2019 makeup collection and it’s giving us major safari vibes. Six new iridescent eyeshadow shades, a nude lip colour and an eyeshadow brush encompass this philanthropic collection. You heard that right – true to its passion for nature, the cruelty-free and vegan-friendly NYC-based, French beauty brand is doing its part to give back to Africa’s vanishing species. Part of the proceeds from the collection will be going to six wildlife foundations that are working to prevent the extinction of endangered African species – the elephant, rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe, lion and pangolin.
Shimmer goddesses assemble
All Luminescent Eye Shades ($87) come in earthy tones like warm champagne, golden copper, dusky violet and shimmering grey/taupe, just to name a few. With a gel-powder formula and cream-like finish, one swipe goes a long way with these babies. Did we mention that it’s completely versatile too? Use it as a sheer finish for your peepers, a shimmery touch-up for your base shadow or a sweet highlighter (don’t forget the collar bones!). One thing’s for sure, your smokey eye is getting a fresh upgrade. We also love the choice of moody black and white wildlife portraits on each eye shadow compact. Super classy! Trivia: all photographers behind the portraits have also played a part in wildlife conservation.
Sending nudes and a special brush for a special swatch
Specially crafted for the collection, The Shape and Sweep Eye Brush ($66) is created with cutting-edge fibres that mimic real hair. You’ll be able to sweep up the product easily and have more control over the payoff. Major love.
What goes well with a bangin’ smokey eye? A classic nude lip and rosy, au naturale cheeks. Feast your eyes on Tamboti, the latest shade in the Lip Veil series ($80). This uber-creamy nude shade complements every skin tone and glides on like butter, thanks to the hydrating baobab oil, harvested ethically in Zimbabwe. Love the elephants? The Lip Veil collection exclusively supports Space For Giants, a non-profit conservation that’s committed to protecting the migratory paths of elephants from human encroachment and poachers.
The six wildlife foundations include the Cheetah Conservation Fund, Lion Guardians, Space for Giants, Giraffe Conservation Foundation, Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (for the rhinos) and Tikki Hywood Foundation (for those adorable pangolins).
Harvey Tsao, Regional Manager of Chantecaille, predicts that the lion, pangolin and cheetah shades will be major crowd favourites. You heard it first from us! Rocking makeup with a good cause? You don’t have to tell us twice… see you at the beauty counter.
