Chantecaille Sunbeam Collection Summer 2022

Chantecaille Sunbeam Collection Summer 2022

above: Makeup Bag + Sunnies

I purchased all three summer pieces from the Chantecaille Sunbeam Collection and love every single item. They’re quite pricey but the colors are beautiful and easy to wear. I love the lip tints for an effortless wash of color and the highlighter is a stunner. The neon green/yellow packaging is fun for summer too. I ordered mine from Chantecaille.

Lip Tint Hydrating Balms

Chantecaille Lip Tint Hydrating Balms

There are two Lip Tint Hydrating Balms ($35 each for 1 g/0.03 oz) which are super petite and small. They’re incredibly expensive given the amount of product you get. If you’re willing to splurge I think the colors and formula are excellent.

Marigold is a perfect neutral everyday pink rose. Sunflower is a soft mocha. Colors are medium in coverage. Texture is smooth. Formula is hydrating. No detectable scent. Lasting power is medium since they’re a balm with a glossy formula.

They have about the same coverage and shine as the ones packaged in the blue tubes from the Vibrant Oceans collection a couple years ago.

Sunbeam Cheek and Eye Shade

The Sunbeam Cheek and Eye Shade ($82) is a stunning highlighter in a multi dimensional color. It has a beautiful champagne, bronze, pink glow – so hard to describe and photos don’t do it justice. It’s definitely a unique one in my book. It has that smooth gel/powder formula and can be used on eyes and cheeks.

Sharing a look at a few other favorites I’m wearing including the Future Skin Cushion Foundation in Nude, Perfect Blur Finishing Powder in Light/Medium, Real Bronze Bronzer in Sirena, Luminescent Eye Shades in Cheetah and Giraffe (also swatched Lion). I think the items are 100% worth the splurge as I purchased all of these and have repurchased the cushion and powder. I do think they’re overpriced but I really love the quality, texture, colors and wear them often.

If you’ve been wondering whether the new summer collection items are worth the splurge, I think they are. You can find the summer items available at Chantecaille and Neiman Marcus. Nordstrom still has the lip balms. Colors are limited-edition so if you have your eye on them I’d recommend purchasing soon.

Chantecaille Safari Collection – Fall 2020

September 18, 2020

Chantecaille Safari Collection Review | The Beauty Look Book

I have a look at the new Chantecaille Safari Collection today and it features one eyeshadow trio and three lip colors created to support Space for Giants. If you’re looking for some nice fall transition colors nice for an everyday polished look I highly recommend giving this collection a look! You can find the collection at Chantecaille, Blue Mercury, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.

Safari Collection Eye Trio

Chantecaille Safari Eye Trio

The Safari Collection Eye Trio ($75) is a limited-edition palette and is a bit harder to find right now as it has sold out online at Chantecaille but still available at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. I was happy to be able to find it and am completely obsessed! The three shades include:

  • Nanu a soft shimmering taupe
  • Red Earth is a shimmery reddish copper plum
  • Selenkey is a shimmery gold

Each shadow has a tiny bit of overspray on the embossed elephant pattern. The shadows have medium pigment, a super soft texture and a luminous finish. The palette is easy to wear for a wide range of skin tones and I think it will be flattering whether you are warm or cool toned. They work effortlessly to layer and blend – I think the texture and formula are beautiful! Lasting power is very good – they stay put with minimal fading until the end of the day. That being said, if you can’t track this down don’t worry – I think the colors are easy to replicate with other brands for a similar vibe.

I personally find the Luminescent Eye Shades more special and unique for their sparkling luster and pigment. I swatched Elephant, Lion and Giraffe next to the trio for comparison.

Lip Veil

Chantecaille Lip Veil Safari Collection

I think this is my first time trying the Chantecaille Lip Veil formula and I’m head over heels in love. It has the comfortable feel of a balm but pigment of a lipstick. It’s the perfect hybrid of shine and lipstick in one. I am definitely going to have to try other shades. These are very expensive but I think the formula is excellent. Since they are a shiny formula lasting power isn’t going to be super long, but it’s one of the formulas I don’t mind reapplying. It stayed put for a few hours before I noticed the color showing signs of fading. UPDATE: Colors just popped up online at Nordstrom too! In the Safari Collection we have:

  • Plumeria a soft pink-plum
  • Acacia a gorgeous pink plum rose
  • Tamarind a medium brown cinnamon

I normally feel like I cannot wear browns on my lips but Tamarind has enough warmth to give it some life!

I think the Lip Veils are the stand outs for me for both the color and formula. I find that most cool-toned mauves are too blue on my skin, but I really like how Plumeria looks. I think Acacia and Tamarind are perfect naturally flattering colors for the transition to the fall season, and I feel like they’re classic enough I can wear them in Florida where summer weather lasts until November sometimes.

You can find the Chantecaille Safari Collection out now at Chantecaille, Blue Mercury, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.
