Protected Paradise Face contains shimmery sheer coral and pink shades as well as gold which can be used a a highlighter. Also, it comes with a large pouf that can be used to create a healthy glow all over the face and décolletage.

Protected Paradise Eyes contains a pale gray base color with a marine green-tinted overlay. One of the fish is a shade of aqua that can be used as an eye shadow or eyeliner and the other fish is a rosy gold that can be used to highlight the brow bone or the inner corners of the eyes. This palette comes equipped with an eyeliner brush as well as a basic shadow brush.


Oh my goodness, are these not adorable?  Sigh, I wish they weren’t $90 a pop, because I would surely consider getting one otherwise.  I just don’t think I could bring myself to splurge that much on any makeup item with my student budget!  Anyone a fan of Chantecaille?

    OMG so freaking beautiful! But…

    A) I also couldn’t spend that kind of money being a university student
    B) I would be hesitant to use it a lot, as I imagine it would start to wear down and lose its pretty picture!

    But how creative. Wow!

    WOW, 90$ is some serious crack smoking!! The shadows are really pretty but like Lori said, it wouldn’t really be usable because the image would get ruined. I swear at times I think these cosmetic CEO meetings are a bunch of silly skinny fashionistas sitting around smoking crack and then laughing at us little people for considering spending 90$ on a eyeshadow.

    • LOL! Chantecaille is pretty pricey as a brand, so I wasn’t surprised at the prices for these, but I can’t afford Chantecaille, well, I suppose I could, but I can’t justify the expense!

      *LMAO* I have no problem picturing that and I’m sure it’s not far off from reality!

    Are the eyeshadows $90 or is that the face stuff?? Do you know when itll be available in stores?

    They look gorgeous but i wouldn’t spend 90 dollars on it.

    omg so beautiful… but so not worth the price tag. ack

    Hot dandy! Makeup AND cute ocean pictures for the cause of environmentalism? I love it. Its a good thing I’ve never seen the brand in my city because I’d probably get the green fishy one just to look at. *lol*

    • They are sooo adorable, but I know I’d never use it! You’d think with a $90 pricetag, they could give a bit more than 5% though :/ Better something than nothing!

    Where are these being sold?

  8. Mary

    WOW $90! What are they on? They are GORGEOUS, but as soon as you use them, they start to look like any other eyeshadow I would think.
    These types of designs seem to be a trend right now, but they are really a useless one unless you don’t want to actually USE the product.
    Thanks for the pics though, they are beautiful!

    OMG! You can find a much prettier picture to look at online for FREE! :) And for this kind of money you can get a lot more nice stuff at MAC :)

    TBH, they don’t really appeal to me.

    (I noticed that you wrote “I wish they were $90 a pop” and I was gonna wonder why until I checked out the source.)

  11. I just heard of Chantecaille for the first time a few months ago in Glamour. And being someone who likes to hear about makeup asap, I am shocked at how fast famous people and makeup artists started talking about it and using it. Where the heck do they even sell it? And WHY is it SO EXPENSIVE? I heard it was started by an heiress of some sort, so ‘cmon, what is up with the price?

    *But these are simply GORGEOUS.

    Pretty, but not for 90.

    I found your blog through Makeup Bag. Chantecaille is a nice brand but the price has been skyrocketing the last few seasons. I’ve used it since 2003. The Papillons from a couple of years ago were more reasonable around $40. $90 is extremely expensive and while it’s a nice brand, I would not recommend it for someone on a budget. Guerlain is similar in quality but the prices more reasonable.

    • Hey Betsy! Thanks for visiting us :) I appreciate you sharing your insight into Chantecaille, as I don’t think many of us have tried it personally!

  14. i love it . the blue one i mean, any one with tanned skin should wear blue beause it gives there skin a healthy glow.
