This years Fall collection from Chantecaille looked like a sophisticated array of wearable warm neutrals, the colours kept soft and simple.
Fairy Moss (£30) is my first Hydra Chic lipstick. Its very
creamy with a slightly heavy feel and has very good coverage.
Though is feels quite moisturising this particular shade highlights lip lines and I can't attest to its claimed "6 hours of
wear" as find this no longer lasting than an average lipstick.
The finish is a satin matte, I was expecting a rose/pink nude so
was surprised by just how beige this is. It swatches better than it applies on the lips for me, as I just get a flat beige.
For cheeks we have Bliss (£32), its embossed with the signature
Chantecaille rose (in celebration of their 15-year anniversary).
Described as a sheer petal pink, on me its a warm
dusty pink. Though seemingly matte it does have a glow about it
once applied. It has a smooth, lightweight texture, it applies
reasonably well (though not seamlessly) and lasts about 4/5
hours before I get heavy fading. I would say that this has a
dryer feel than my other Chantecaille blushers.
You can probably tell that there is not any love going on here
and though I was eyeing up the eyeshadow palette from the
collection, I've decided to give it a miss due to how these
products have failed to wow me.
I use to be heavily into Chantecaille (I had much more of the range
before I started blogging), it was always a nice indulgent
luxury, who's quality was worthy of the price, however I have
felt that certain formula's have changed over the years and the
brands not quite at it's peak as it once was.
