SINGAPORE — Taking inspiration from colourful India – from the eye-popping flowers that bloom throughout the country to the beautiful, colourful festivals and ceremonies – French beauty brand Chantecaille reveals their latest Summer 2019 collection.
Chantecaille’s lip line, Lip Veil, S$80, has three new limited-edition colours, with proceeds going to Elephant Family, a conservation organisation committed to saving the Asian elephant. The lipstick contains FairWild-certified organic Baobab Oil, wild mango butter and argan oil that leaves lips with a hydrating effect. The colours available are: Mandevilla, watermelon pink; Pink Lotus, warm rose; and Frangipane, vibrant coral.
Application: It takes me 3-4 application to get a full, covered effect, but my lips did feel hydrated, without that sticky feeling. The colour is not too deep, but there is a glossy effect, which I like.
For those looking for a hint of blush colour, this Aqua Blush cheek pot, S$74, may just be for you. It’s made from over 50% of water to leave your skin with a cooling and hydrating feeling. You can choose from three eye-popping colours: Gladiola, a cool, fresh pink with a delicate shimmer; Marigold, a warm, wearable coral sheenwith a gentle sparkle; and Red Ginger, a strawberry-pink colour with shimmering pearls.
Application: Just a gentle swipe on your cheeks will leave you with a nice sheen. Apply a second layer if you want an intense colour.
Lastly, the Real Bronze bronzer, S$131 comes in a lightweight gel/powder formula with will leave your skin with a sun-kissed glow. Two colours launched are: Sirena in golden bronze; and Goa in cocoa bronze.
Application: Using a fluffy brush, pick up the bronzer and gently swirl in small circles across your hairline. To accentuate your cheekbones, swipe a line of powder across your cheek to the ear, then gently swirl in small circles across the line. Voila!
