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

    love the cause, but the quad with the tiger faces… just looks weird. love the eyeshadow colors though!

  2. Diane

    Love it! Even though it’s pricey, at least it’s going for a great cause!

  3. baby in a corner

    Oh my God, amazingly pretty but well outside my price range. I like the colours too!

  4. Ali

    wtf is chantecaille?! call me stupid but i have NEVER heard of this brand..haha

    • Rachel

      I was wondering the same thing. Not that I mind the spreading of a good cause.

    • Anitacska

      It’s a high end luxury brand.

    • Alexis

      Chantecaille is the brainchild of Sylvie Chantecaille, the woman behind Prescriptives. The company is owned and run by the Chantecaille family women primarily as a boutique line. It’s been featured in Gossip Girl previously and is a covetable, luxury brand recognized by socialites and makeup artsits for the causes and charity work the family backs.

      Botanical, paraben-free, aromacologie

      The Chantecailles are mindful of their footprint and anything they harvest for their skincare is replanted.

    I haven’t tried this brand, but the palette is beautiful, love the neutral color combination with the orange =), and of course the tiger designs are pretty cute =) the promo image is so different from the collection or is that what they are aiming for?

  6. I can’t wait, I buy these compacts every year and I am always pleased. The designs last quite a while, as they are stamped pretty well, unlike other designed shadows.

  7. nicci

    the lipstick and gloss look so pretty!

  8. Cassykins

    I don’t know that I understand the orangey brown color in with the grey/black (in the quad). Doesn’t look like they used it on the model, either.

  9. Stacey M

    Lovely quad, but I could never justify that purchase!

  10. i really love this! =)

  11. Carrie

    These are always gorgeous but I always hope that they’ll up the % that goes to charity. 5% is pretty piddly, I think. Even if the product is expensive.

  12. Jazz

    78 bucks for a palette? Thats ridiculous. that eyeshadow had better be the BOMB. I will pass – for the price of that I can justify getting 2 palettes from MAC and a new lipglass

  13. It’s just so incredibly boring and Chante e/s are always so sheer.

  14. Anitacska

    Aah, I love the Tiger palette, will definitely get it. I love LE Chantecaille palettes, I got into them when Protected Paradise was released (2 years ago?) and I have most of them, they’re all so pretty. :) I swapped away the Bengali Tiger palette and the bronzing powder because I wasn’t going to use the colours, I much prefer the colours in this one though!

  15. Mollie

    I agree with those of you who said they’d rather donate directly to the cause! Although, these colors are undeniably pretty. And I kind of like the tiger faces on the palette, actually. =D

  16. Is it just me or is this kind of boring? I’m definitely a neutrals gal, but this reminds me of something that maybe my grandma would buy. It kind of comes off as a high end snooty-tooty brand.

  17. Have to say that I am NOT loving the tiger quad — it reminds me of those creepy Paul and Joe Kitty Lipsticks that the Muse posted about!

    Animal packaging = Cute
    Animal shaped = Not so much…

  18. Mmm, $78 palette and only 5% goes to the fund? How about I just send them a whole $100? Might as well, because those colors aren’t anything special.

    Off subject: I really don’t like the way companies airbrush so heavily under the eyes. I’ve never met a person IRL who didn’t have something going on under there. It just looks weird…

  19. Sarah

    I was wondering christine if you could reccomend a dupe ( any brand ) for the grey eyeshadow that the model is wearing? preferably mac! and is the lipstick she is wearing the Anais lipstick?

  20. Christy

    Boring and the model has a weird expression on her face.
