Chantecaille Patina Brilliant Lipgloss

Chantecaille Patina Brilliant Lipgloss ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is semi-opaque berry red with subtle and muted gold micro-shimmer. The color applied more evently than Glaze, but it still had a slightly patchy look to it when worn. The consistency is gel-like, so it has some cushion and glides on easily, and it doesn’t feel sticky. I didn’t notice any scent or taste when I wore it either.

Chantecaille Brilliant Lipgloss (Glaze)

Chantecaille Glaze Brilliant Lipgloss ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a hydrating, long-lasting formula that finishes with brilliant shine. It is also has botanical microspheres to plump lips without stinging. Chantecaille received a fair amount of attention (and sales) when it was revealed Angelina Jolie wears both Love and Charm regularly. I specifically bought more pigmented shades (the other I bought was Patina) from Chantecaille’s line-up, but a good portion of the range is on the sheerer side (which both Love and Charm are).

Chantecaille Spring 2011 Collection


Chantecaille Spring 2011 Collection

Sea turtles define all that is ancient and magical about our blue planet and yet they are endangered and struggling for survival, their numbers severely reduced from historical levels. Persistent over-exploitation, especially of adult females on nesting beaches, and the widespread collection of eggs are largely responsible for the depleted status of Caribbean species. In addition to this harvesting, the turtles are accidentally captured in active or abandoned fishing gear, resulting in deaths to tens of thousands of turtles annually. Coral reef and seagrass degradation, oil spills, chemical waste, persistent plastic and other marine debris, high density coastal development, and an increase in ocean-based tourism have damaged or eliminated nesting beaches and feeding areas.

Sea turtles once shared the Earth with the dinosaurs, and they have quietly watched the theater of evolution for eons. Among the most migratory of all creatures, they touch the hearts and economies of nearly 100 nations. They have been in the midst of danger for some time, and unfortunately many have been lost due to our lack of action. Today, Chantecaille is honoring the impressive beauty and stature of these gentle giants. Chantecaille continues its mission to support marine wildlife.

Chantecaille is partnering with Dr. Karen Eckert of WIDECAST, who is focused on saving sea turtles in the waters of the Caribbean Sea, including Caribbean island nations and in Central and South America. WIDECAST, the Wider Caribbean Sea Turtle Conservation Network (www.widecast.org), is comprised of a network of experts resident in more than 40 Caribbean nations and territories, all working together to realize a future where sea turtles and human communities can live together in balance. Please join us in supporting the conservation efforts of this unique organization.

Chantecaille Tiger in the Wild Collection for Fall 2010

Chantecaille Tiger in the Wild Collection for Fall 2010

To celebrate and raise awareness for the wild tiger, Chantecaille has created a limited edition palette with a selection of easy to wear cheek and eyeshades with an elegant Tiger embossing that is easy to wear and attractive on everyone.

While the world celebrates the Year of the Tiger, the plight of this majestic animal continues. In fact, this celebration of the tiger places it in a more perilous situation. Demand has increased for tiger parts including paws, teeth, bones, and skins while the last of the tigers are being poached, tiger farms are sprouting in Asia catering to the illegal trade in body parts. Tigers are poached, hunted and exterminated for small and big profit. The disappearance of wild tigers is of utmost urgency, as the loss of our top predators is the barometer of an ecosystem in trouble. Since 1998, the last Year of the Tiger, the population of tigers in the wild has diminished from 5,000 to 3,200. With this palette, Chantecaille supports TRAFFIC*, an international wildlife trade monitoring organization to help save the last tigers in the wild. It is a world-wide concern, which needs attention and focus.

“Poaching continues to erode wild Tiger numbers, but with sufficient support we can restore Tigers to all their glory in the forests of Asia.” – Steven Broad, Executive Director of TRAFFIC
