Spring 2019 – Polar Ice Collection
Spring 2019 collection is inspired by Glaciers and Arctic Life. Warming oceans and milting glaciers are a growing environmental crisis with a threat to Polar life specially polar bears, arctic foxes and other species. Earth’s balance is being disturbed and something needs to be done to protect these Polar species.
Chantecaille created this limited edition Spring Collection after Chantecaille siblings travelled to North Pole last year hoping to see polar bears and understood the grave situation of shrinking ice caps.
Later last month, I was very kindly invited by Chantecaille UK team for a pamper treatment by their trained Facialist & beauty Expert Elizabeth Torres at their Spa. Elizabeth gave me a Detox facial along with Blue Light treatment. My facial was followed by one to one makeup appointment by Chantecaille’s International Makeup Artist Ryan Bustos who showcased the Spring collection and gave me a makeover.
1 Lip Crystal Sold = 1 Tree Planted
Lip Cristal’s breathtaking, crystalline bullet reveals a creamy formula that washes lips with sparkling color and metallic depth.
What sets this lipstick apart is its weightlessness: there’s zero grit or irritation, just silky, buildable color that leaves lips perfectly glossed and shiny. These lip crystals come in 3 shades:
- Citrine – A luminous pale peach with a sheen
- Tourmaline – A cool frosted pink with multicolor sparkle
- Carnelian – A vibrant cherry red with warm sparkle
Even though the lipsticks are sheer with frosted finish, the pigment is incredible if you build it up. The best part is they feel so creamy on the lips without any glitter feel.
With every lip crystal sold, a tree is planted in Kenya.
Chantecaille’s HD Perfecting Loose Powder is a shimmering, featherweight loose powder that instantly lights up the skin with a warm, candle-lit sheen. The ultrafine non-drying powder is housed in cylindrical container and topped with a self-dispensing vegan brush and lid for mess-free touch-ups on-the-go. Skin is rendered bright, mattified and luminous with zero-shine. You can never over-do your powder with this one! It makes skin look healthy and radiant.
Polar Ice Eye Palette | £90
The limited edition Polar Ice eyeshadow palette from Chantecaille features an array of nine pearlescent eye shades in a range of radiant finishes.
The Polar Ice Palette celebrates the beauty of the polar regions, with nine icy shades and three distinct effects: sparkle, metallic and radiant glow. A hydrating cream-based formula delivers super-smooth application with long-lasting, crease-proof wear, while the crystalline compact captures a unique galactic glow. Top 3 shades in the palette are for Gold Ice Glow, Middle row is Blue Ice Glow and Bottom is Mauve Ice Glow.
When I first saw the palette on social media, the shades looked out of my comfort zone but when I saw it in person at Harvey Nichols, I really liked it. Honestly, I was blown away when I swatched it (the swatches in this post don’t justify the beauty of each shadow).
The pigment is incredible and these blend so easily as well. You can use either brush or finger for the shimmer shades. The eyeshadows are not gritty in texture. They are so finely milled and are buttery. Some shades reflect in multiple colours like holographic metallic effect. I am feeling the vibes of these colors at the moment and been rocking these light reflecting shades lately. I’m so ready for Spring!
Celestial Nail Sheer | £24
This nail polish range celebrates the beauty of the polar regions with an astral-hued palette inspired by the Northern Lights. An ultra-fine infusion of pearls lends a unique, iridescent dimension for an individual look – wear each shade alone or apply it as you would a top coat to transform any opaque shade into an intergalactic hue. The nail sheer top coat is available in 3 shades:
- Nova – Warm Pink pearl
- Vega – Green-Golden pearl
- Polaris – Blue pearl with a hint of red pearl
8-free, vegan formula, Cruelty-free; Paraben-free; Pthalate-free
The Spring 2019 collection is Luminous, Colorful & Dazzling and I absolutely love the formulas. The packaging is eye catching and chic while the pigments, textures and formulas are incredible. You can’t go wrong with anything here but the Polar Ice palette is my absolute favourite! Definitely check the Lip crystals out as well, they can be used alone or as a topper on your favourite lipstick. Plus you will be supporting this cause of saving Arctic Life by buying a Lip Crystal.
Until next time, Ashh xo
