I know I am a little late to finally try and share about my picks from the Chantecaille Hummingbird Collection which launched this spring. It is a limited-edition collection. I have been using three products from the collection for the last few days and they are as beautiful as the cause behind their launch. As we know, The Amazon Rainforest is one of the most biodiverse spots on the earth and home to over 1500 species of bird. For the Hummingbird, the forests of Colombia are key habitat to over 150 species. And if the first is healthy, Hummingbirds are flourishing but currently, it is not the case – the forests are vanishing.

Chantecaille has partnered with Amazon Conservation Team who work with indigenous and local communities across the region to protect tropical forests and strengthen the traditional culture. Each Lip Chic from the Hummingbird collection helps indigenous women protect the spectacular biodiversity of the Andean Amazon.

Chantecaille Hummingbird Eye Quartet is a limited edition compact inspired by the flickering magic of a hummingbird’s colourful wings. The collectible compacts reveal rich eye shades that create shimmering, sophisticated looks that define and flatter most of the skin tones and eyes colours. Chantecaille Hummingbird Eye Quartet in Warm has below four shades:

top left – a glimmering peach (highlight)

top right – matte neutral brown (base)

bottom left – cool shimmering slate (liner)

bottom right – chromatic gold with iridescent pink pearl (all-over lid)

The formula of the eyeshadows is very smooth and creamy. They are very easy to apply and blend easily. The formula is very pigmented and with a very nice longevity. The shades in the quartet can be used on their or can be layered. The different finishes, as you see in swatches too, creates a prismatic jewel-toned effect when viewed from different angles, the same way as hummingbird’s feathers glint in the sunlight. I have used the shimmering eyeshadows with my finger as well as with a brush but prefer to apply the matte shade with a brush.

Chantecaille Lip Chic Supporting Amazon Conservation Team, as mentioned earlier in this article, will give back to Amazon Conservation Team to support their work preserving the hummingbird’s rain forest habitat and strengthening traditional culture. Lip Chic is a weightless, glossy, and smoothing lipstick. It is infused with Hyaluronic Acid and results in soft, nourished, and supple lips. I have two shades on rotation and both are perfect for a neutral or a fresh look – Honeysuckle (dusty rose) and Lupine (soft cool pink). The formula is very comfortable and easy to wear. It does not settle in the lines nor does it accentuates the lines.

Overall, I am very impressed with the collection. I highly recommend checking it out – a must-have collection this year. The formulas, the shades, and the cause – everything is incredible. The collection is limited-edition and I see it is still available with the below-mentioned retailers in Canada. I also reviewed the Vibrant Oceans Collection from the brand here in case you missed reading it. Chantecaille products including the Hummingbird Collection is available at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Chantecaille Vibrant Oceans Collection launched recently just in time for summer. The Vibrant Oceans Collection supports WildAid to support its mission to reduce the global consumption of wildlife products. As with other products and limited edition launches from Chantecaille, this cause that Chantecaille supports is close to my heart. I know, with the daily routine and busy life, sometimes we are not able to connect or support the cause directly but through the brands like Chantecaille, it feels good inside to support and also to know the different organizations around the globe supporting the various causes which we might not even be aware of sometimes.

“Global consumption of wild animals poses a threat to certain species and to human health from zoonotic disease outbreaks. Some marine species are especially vulnerable. Whale sharks—the ocean’s gentle giants—are hunted for their meat and fins, while intelligent manta rays are overfished for their gill plates, used in health tonics.”, per the official website. And because it has never been clearer that protecting wildlife also means protecting ourselves.

Chantecaille Vibrant Oceans Collection has Radiance Chic Cheek and Highlighter Duo – 2 palettes & Lip Tint Hydrating Balm in 4 shades.

Chantecaille Radiance Chic Cheek and Highlighter duo in a palette have a radiant colour paired with a lustrous highlighter. The formula is very creamy and smooth, applies and blends easily. The radiant colour is very soft and adds a pop of colour to the cheeks. The highlighter adds a beautiful radiance to the high points of the face. Together, the duo works well both on cheeks and eyes. I love how easy they both are to apply, either separately or together by dipping the same brush in each and applying. There are two palettes with shades as described below:

Radiance Chic Cheek and Highlighter Duo in Rose

Radiance Chic Cheek and Highlighter Duo in Coral Manta Ray has a soft peachy champagne highlighter and burnished apricot blush. Radiance Chic Cheek and Highlighter Duo in Rose Whale Shark has a pale gold highlighter and vivid pink blush. Both the palettes are so beautiful and wearable.

On my medium skin tone with golden undertones, both the palettes work very well but I have been reaching out for the Coral palette more. They are perfect for everyday use as well for a soft glamour look. Both the radiant colour and the highlighter have pretty good longevity. The colour formula is very forgiving, even a little heavy hand blends nicely to give a soft natural look.

Chantecaille Lip Tint Hydrating Balm is a sheer, lightweight, and hydrating tinted lip balm. It nourishes lips, makes them comfortable, smooth, and supple. I love the subtle tint it provides, looks so natural and beautiful. It has become my go-to these days. I use it on its own as lip care or as a lip tint. It keeps my lips soft and hydrated even after it has worn off. There are 4 shades available in this Lip Tint Hydrating Balm, I have been loving two shades which I have swatched – Madeira which is a sheer red and Verbena which is a sheer plum. Both the shades look amazing on my medium skin tone.

It’s not been a long time since I shared how much I am in love with the Chantecaille eyeshadows and blush – both of which are one of the best formulas I have tried. 5 out of 7 days I am wearing the Vibrant cheek gelee blush in vibrant from Chantecaille – it has become a favourite. I was so impressed with the makeup products I have used from Chantecaille that I obviously had set a bar, very high, for the brand including the skincare products. I have been using a few products, including new launches, from Chantecaille for the last 2 months. The products include:
Blue Light Protection Hyaluronic Serum, Bio Lifting Serum+, Bio Lifting Mask, Anti-Pollution Finishing Essence, and Anti-Pollution Mattifying Cream.

Bio Lifting Serum+ is an innovative serum that is infused with powerful botanicals and the peptides that smooth the appearance of horizontal and vertical lines while working to moisturize, immediately lift, visibly firm and protect against blue light pollution. It can be applied twice a day, before the moisturizer. Apply on clean skin, placing two to three drops of Bio Lifting Serum + between fingertips, gently press into the face until product is fully absorbed. Then, follow with moisturizer.

The aroma of rose centers and uplifts promoting a sense of well-being. To use, a generous layer is to be applied twice a week over clean skin. Leave on for 10 – 15 minutes and rinse. May also be left on overnight for a fabulously smooth morning complexion.

Chantecaille Blue Light Protection Hyaluronic Serum, Bio Lifting Serum+, Bio Lifting Mask, Anti-Pollution Finishing Essence, Anti-Pollution Mattifying Cream review

Blue Light Protection Hyaluronic Serum is a refreshing, hydrating hyaluronic serum gentle enough for all skin types. It is infused with a combination of botanicals that offer immediate, long-lasting hydration and visible plumping power while soothing and shielding the skin from the visible effects of blue light pollution.

It works ideally as a booster under the serum or the moisturizer. It can be applied morning and night on a clean face. I use two pumps of this gel-like serum, starting around the eye area, gently press into the entire face until serum is fully absorbed by the skin.

Anti-Pollution Finishing Essence is a lightweight finishing essence rich in powerful botanicals that create an instant barrier against pollutants. It is infused with novel ingredients that moisturize to soothe, protect and rebalance against urban pollution, smog and heavy metals, reducing the appearance of fine lines and dullness for a pinker and more radiant-looking complexion. It is suggested for use by women and men alike as the last step in the skincare routine. The aroma of rose centers and uplifts, promoting a sense of well-being.

To use, apply twice a day as the last step in the skincare routine. Using the Foundation/Mask Brush or fingertips, lightly sweep one drop onto the face, avoiding the eye area. Allow the essence to fully dry before applying foundation.

Anti-Pollution Mattifying Cream is a lightweight moisturizer that helps to visibly refine skin, shrinking the appearance of pores and blackheads induced by urban and screen light pollution. The powerful blend of antioxidants and the metal-binding complex provides skin with immediate protection against heavy metals and particulate matter while novel botanicals rebalance it from the harmful effects of chemical pollutants for a more radiant, rosy looking complexion. It mattifies and leaves skin flawless for women and men alike. The aroma of rose centers and uplifts, promoting a sense of well-being. It can be used morning and evening as a lightweight moisturizer or as a final step in skincare. It can also be used prior to applying the Anti-Pollution Finishing Essence.

Overall, it is hard for me to choose a favourite, these Chaintecaille products have definitely become a part of my everyday skincare routine. My skin looks and feels nourished, supple, soft, radiant, and comfortable. Beautiful formulas and amazing results – highly recommend you to check these out.
