I've never seen MAC Phloof!, which the below reviews compare it to, but Becca Chantilly is most certainly a very light, creamy, dusty lavender shade. I've uploaded a picture that looks like the product I use almost every day.
Chantilly makes a great allover lid color, to even out skin tone. It looks gorgeous and natural under Rouge Bunny Rouge Solstice Halcyon, and it looks equally pretty with both Becca Doeskin and Lamé. I said I would buy again because I have--I am on my second compact.
The texture of Becca's demi-matte eyeshadows is wonderful: soft, buttery, and finely milled without much fallout. Color lasts all day, especially over a good primer, and I get no creasing, but my lids are no longer oily.
Ingredients: Talc, Zea Mays, Magnesium Stearate, Octypalmitate, Synthetic Wax, Mica and may contain Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Polyethylene, Carmine, and Ferric Ferrocyanide.

I fell in love with this cosmetics line. As the review said, it does remind you of MAC phloof, only it is much more mature and less tacky looking. The lady selling me recommended the shadows since I liked her makeup that day. She sold me Lame and Chantilly that day. Then I went and got Doeskin myself after reading good reviews. I pair both along with Doeskin as my every day boring-as-hell work look.
On a side note... becca eyeshadows kicks the MAC ones in the rear up and down the street. The shadows are more friendly and less tacky looking than the MAC ones... and yes! you pay more $$ on these shadows, but there is not one shadows that I have not fell in love with from becca. I was also recommended Brocade and Lurex and another good eyeshadow pair. I guess I will have to wait for my next paycheck!!

This is a lovely eyeshadow, nicely pigmented and a creamy texture. It is not too powdery, very finely milled like the rest of Becca e/s. It is a light beige with a hint of sparkle, a little like phloof, but applies much nicer. Great as a highlighter or all over wash. A great staple, and like the poster said below pairs well with doeskin. Super blendable, definitely will buy again.

I adore this shadow! It's the perfect base or even wear-alone shade that wakes up my eyes. The texture is not quite as creamy as Stila's shadows, but is not at all powdery, which gives a great natural look. I often pair this with Becca's Doeskin for a natural yet polished look, and sometimes wear a light application alone, lash-to-brow, with brown or bronze or brown liner and brown mascara for a very soft but flattering look. This is a real winner from Becca!

I have a few Becca shadows and although they are nice, the colors arent particularly unique and they are pricey at $20. So lo and behold the Sephora sale discontinues the line so I grab a bunch of these for $5. Great deal at $5. Chantilly is a demi matte shade. Its a soft beige with a taupe hint to it. Really great highlighter shade or lid shade to pair with a darker crease shade. Its not a stark white and not a beige that blends with your skin. Perfect amount of color for my nc30 light olive complexion. Comes in a brown and silver compact with mirror.

Love the Becca demi-matte eyeshadows because they're not too shimmery or frosty and also they last forever! I have oily eyelids and this has been the best eyeshadow so far--I've tried a lot. Also, I love this color as an all over base color to use with other colors or just alone with some eyeliner.
One gripe though. Hate the packaging. I have 4 Becca eyeshadows. I have 44 year old eyes. You can't see the product color through the package and I can barely read the name on the label--especially when you've had the eyeshadow for a while. I wish it came in a see-through package.

The Becca powder eye shadows come in a compact that looks exactly like their blush/concealer etc. compacts only smaller. The container houses only 1g of product, which at US $20 for this small gem is quite little! As opposed to what other people have reported I've never had any of my Becca e/s break or crumble.
The e/s is easy to blend and pigmented. Applied on top of a primer (MAC paint, UD PP) it lasts through a whole day on me. The shade- Chantilly- is a light, only slightly shimmery silvery taupy beige, the same colour family as Stila cloud. It's not as shimmery and more pigmented though and thus appears less silvery than cloud. If I apply this e/s on top of matte primer (UD PP), then the effect of the e/s is a little chalky and matte, on top of shimmering primer (MAC stilife or shimma paint) the slight shimmer of the Becca e/s is enhanced and brightens up my hole eye area. I love to combine this e/s with Becca Lame and Tweed e/s for a natural look (see separate reviews). The quality is convincing in my opinion, Becca has a really pretty range of neutral e/s, so I am planning on getting more although they are so pricey. Other e/s brands I love are Trish McEvoy, Stila, Aveda (old formula), Shu to give you an idea which kind of consistency I prefer.
