Chantecaille Les Dauphins Palette + Bourbon Rose Lip Chic

March 4, 2010

Chantecaille’s Les Dauphins Palette & Bourbon Rose Lip Chic are more beautiful than words can describe. I’ve been thinking of how I can give a review that does justice to the Les Dauphins Palette – and all I can say is I think it’s a must-have for those who love soft spring-like neutrals and especially those who love taupey shadows. Bourbon Rose is the softer color out of the 2 spring lip chics. It’s a natural rosey pink – similar to Tea Rose, but slightly lighter and has golden shimmer.

Without flash:

I haven’t had time to do swatches of this palette, but Karlasugar has already done an amazing feature on all the items – so I highly recommend you check out her post if you haven’t already.

I played around with the palette at Neimans and the color on the dolphins is an overspray. The shadows and blush all have a lovely subtle shimmer. I’m typically not a huge fan of split-pan shadows or blushes, but all the colors in this palette are so pretty, I don’t mind.

This is the planned look of the day with the Chantecaille Dauphins Palette & Bourbon Rose Lip Chic.

    I wasn't sure about that palette at first but after seeing your pictures and Karla's swatches I think I'll have to pick it up as they look like the shades I always go for.

  • SS

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOo pretty!! I just picked this up after seeing it on your blog and LOVE this pallette!! It gives such a sophisticated look! Great pick!

  • Sabrina, have you had a chance to play with this palette yet? I'm trying to get a feel for the pigmentation of the shadows (I know KarlaSugar swatched them, but they're heavily swatched to show the colors … not sure how they apply in real life) …

    HELP! Would love to hear your thoughts! :0)

  • God I love the eyeshadows…but that blush would not show on me =(
