Sharing a look at the summer launch from Chantecaille with their Cosmos Collection today! The summer items are repromoted colors in limited-edition packaging. If you’ve been a long-time Chantecaille lover you may want to shop your stash to recreate their summer look. I own two of the items from previous launches and there are slight differences but they are pretty much the same (more below).
Real Bronze and Real Glow
There are two cheek products in this launch. The Real Bronze Bronzer ($84) in Sirena is a gel to powder formula with a super soft texture. It almost feels like it melts into the skin in a really beautiful way. The color in this new launch has a more golden brown undertone compared to the original (in the red packaging). The differences are so subtle though I cannot tell the difference on the face but the original one does pull more neutral/cool. Their bronzers have a subtle glow/sheen that is super flattering on the skin.
The Real Glow Highlighter ($84) in Stella is a soft pearly champagne. It has some slight peachy undertones with a pearlescent golden shimmer. I’ve read that it’s also a repromoted from a previous launch but I don’t have it to compare. This one is smooth, ultra fine in texture, doesn’t emphasize pores and has pretty impressive pigment. You can sheer it out for a more subtle glow and it doesn’t give frosty metallic vibes at all.
The Chantecaille Lip Chic ($52) formula is well loved by many of you and I 100% agree it’s top notch! The two shades are repromotes as well. Freesia is a soft pink with mauve tones although it pulls warmer and almost rosy beige compared to the previous one (more mauve/cool/muted). Ceylon is a plum orchid shade. This is a new to me color so I can’t compare it to the existing lineup.
Both colors glide onto the lips with absolute perfection. I love the glossy finish, medium buildable pigment and the colors are flattering for year round. They have a soft vanilla scent to them. Formula is hydrating and feels very comfortable on the lips.

Overall thoughts are a bit mixed. The products are beautiful and perform well. I think they’re easy to wear for an effortless polished look. If you splurge I don’t think you’ll be disappointed – I splurged on Sirena in the previous red compact format and while my wallet was not happy, I really enjoy using that bronzer still. The colors are so wearable and naturally flattering I think they are shades you’ll reach for frequently.
I will 100% use these (especially the Sirena bronzer and Freesia lipstick) because I think the shades are beautiful, quality is excellent and the colors are easy to use for a polished look. That being said I’m not sure I would call any of these must-haves given the extremely high price points and the fact that they’re repromotes. I usually love Chantecaille’s aesthetic for something fresh, new and polished. I would have really loved to see new colors alongside their best sellers instead of just repromotes.
