The Chantecaille Summer 2020 Collection is here to help get you ready for a long, hot summer! Furthermore, this limited edition summer collection is very edited. In other words, there are only two new products in the collection. First, are the Chantecaille Summer Radiance Chic Cheek Highlighter Duos. Moreover, the other product is a hydrating lip tint, balm in four shades. I passed on the lip tint balms since I am running out of lipstick space. Although, I don’t care how many blushers I have, I can always find room for more. So, I purchased both shades.
Chantecaille Radiance Chic Cheek Highlighter Duos – Philanthropic Cheek Shades
To begin with, I love that the packaging is in the color of the year, 2020, Blue. Not only is Blue the color of the year, it is also the color of the deep blue sea. In other words, this Philanthropic brand is supporting ocean conservation. Also, Chantecaille is well known as the brand that uses beauty as a tool to effect change to the world. Therefore, the Chantecaille philanthropy platform spotlights global environmental issues and supports conservation efforts around the world.
Furthermore, the limited edition highlighter supports WildAid, whose mission is to reduce global consumption of wild life products. Think of these palettes. as philanthropic cheek shades. So, when you shop these cheek palettes, you are supporting wild species. The Coral Palette is all about saving and protecting the Manta Ray. And, the Rose Palette is all about saving and protecting the Whale Shark.
Packaging For The Chantecaille Radiance Chic Cheek Highlighter Duos : Coral Manta Ray, and Rose Whale Shark
First, the outer box is a deep blue, which is the color of the deep ocean. Therefore, the picture on the Coral outer box and lid of the palette, is a Manta Ray swimming in the ocean. In addition, the Rose palette has a Whale Shark swimming in the deep blue ocean, on the outer box, and the lid of the palette. Furthermore, the palette, itself, is a beauty.
First, the palette is an electric, metallic blue shade. Also, it has a, lift up the lid to open, and lower the lid til it snaps, closure.
Also, as I’ve already mentioned, on the top of each palette is a picture, one of a Manta Ray, and the other of a Whale Shark. Next, inside the palette there is a nice, large mirror on one side. On the other side, are two rectangular pans. The top pan holds a highlighter. Underneath, the pan holds the blush. The powders, themselves, have a beautiful lined design that looks like the waves in the sea.
The Formula For The Chantecaille Radiance Chic Cheek Highlighter Duos
Chantecaille is synonymous with luxury beauty. The founder, Sylvie Chantecaille, appreciates scientific technology using pure plants and botanicals. In this way, she has single handedly raised the bar for the beauty industry. She creates beauty products that are made from the purest ingredients. In other words, her formulas are built with pure ingredients and smart science.
Furthermore, she uses what is called adherent Gel-Powder Technology. As a result, the powders don’t feel, nor do they perform like a talc powder. Instead, they have a gel-like, super soft, creamy feeling. So, on the skin, they feel as light as air. Also, the look is more natural, like the flush is coming from within.
Even more, the formula feels creamy. It is super blendable. Additionally, the formula is buildable. You may have to go in two , three, or four times, with your brush. Yet, the formula creates the look of second skin.
This isn’t your typical Nars Blush. Instead, the Chantecaille Blush and Highlighter are formulas unto themselves. In other words, the formula is more delicate, refined, and sophisticated. So, don’t expect a one swipe and your done, pigmented blush. You’ll need a few swipes to grab this formula, and delicately apply it to your cheeks. In fact, it is a whole new experience.
The Shades Of The Chantecaille Radiance Chic Cheek Highlighter Duos Shades
Coral Manta Ray
First, The Coral Manta Ray Palette Highlighter is a peachy champagne shade with an ever so slight shimmer.
Wear the highlighter on the high parts of your face. Therefore, wear the highlighter on your cheekbones, down the center of your nose, on your Cupid’s bow, and even wear it on your brow bones.
Next, the Coral Manta Ray Blush, a burnished apricot shade, has a matte finish.
Since there are two pans in the palette, I suggest you use a small kabuki brush to apply the powders. For one thing, a small brush will fit into the pans much better than a regular blush brush. Moreover, a small Kabuki brush is dense, so it is perfect for picking up the gel-powder formula.
Remember, this is not a powdery, highly pigmented blush. Instead, it is a flush of color. However, it is buildable. Once you achieve your desired look, you’ll love the ethereal, flush from within. Even more, you’ll appreciate that it feels like a second skin. And, I love that it goes on smoothly, and looks smooth on your skin.
Rose Whale Shark
To start, the Rose Whale Shark Highlighter is a pale gold shade, that has a delicate shimmer. Again, wear the highlighter on your cheekbones, down the center of your nose, and on your Cupid’s bow. Also, use the highlighter to highlight your brow bones. Even more, wear the highlighter in the areas of your face that you want to highlight. For example, apply the highlighter in the center of your forehead. Also, dab a drop on the center of your chin.
Furthermore, the Rose Shark Blush, a vivid pink shade, has a natural matte.
Again, wear the blush to flush your cheeks. Also, you can wear the pink shade on your eyelids. I would brush the flush on your temples, across your nose from temple to temple. This is called Draping. It is a popular trend to wear blush, or in this case, a flush.
My Final Thoughts On The Chantecaille Radiance Chic Cheek Highlighter Duos
First of all, like everything Chantecaille does, these Cheek Highlighter Duos are gorgeous! In fact, Chantecaille’s formula is like no other brand that I know of. For example, the highlighter has the most delicate shimmer, it almost looks as if it is wet. The blush pigment creates the most incredible flush of color. In fact, it looks like you just ran around the block. The look is so realistic. It almost looks like you aren’t wearing any makeup at all. I love their formula! Also, I love that the formula is cruelty free, and vegan friendly. Even more, I don’t mind the expense because I know some of the money is going to a great cause. Like I said, Philanthropy for your cheeks. And that makes me feel good.
I’d love to hear what you think about these Philanthropic Cheek Highlighter Duos. Would you support a brand who not only creates obsession-worthy beauty products, made from the purest ingredients, and uses beauty as a tool to effect change to the world? There are people in this world who really care. And, that is a really good thing. And, it is a privilege to support them. Out of all of the makeup brands, I fell in love with this one.
