I have this in Light and it works as a loose powder/sunscreen touch up during the day. It's very sheer natural finish though application is annoying because often times I can't even tell if the product is depositing on my face when I am applying it (you have to shake it a little to deposit it onto the brush). The powder section is refillable and is compatible with Chantecaille's …Read more

This is a soft pink glowy blush that goes with just about anything. It is light, so I think it would show up better on fairer skin tones. When you swipe it though, I find that it deposits more glow than color, and it smells very, very strongly of roses. If you like this, then great. But I cannot stand heavily fragranced products... Granted, the rose scent does dissipate after wearing for a few …Read more

I have this in Apple Glow as well. It's a rosey color with mauve undertones and I think it would suit a large range of skin shades, from light to dark. Unlike tons and tons of cream blushes that I have tried, this one is incredibly soft and blends incredibly well. It doesn't have that silicone-y slippery texture to it that makes it hard to rub onto your cheek. Using your fingertips …Read more

This was really dewy on me, and I found it to have medium coverage rather than the sheer coverage you usually expect from a tinted moisturizer. I agree with other reviewers that this is definitely not for oily skin. However, I have combination skin, and the product was so moisturizing that I broke out quite badly. I think I would only recommend this for very dry skin. Moreover, the product is …Read more

I have Passion Fruit and Rose Bud and loved it for the first few months. Then I found that out of the two shades in the compact, only the left one really deposits color. The right shade is supposed to be a highlighter, but 1) the first shade is already so glowy a highlighter is not necessary and 2) the second shade is incredibly hard and unpigmented. If you lightly press on the first and second …Read more

A lot of brands are coming out with sheer balmy lipsticks, but the Chantecaille Lip Chic is the original and the best. I've tried the Chanel Coco Rouge Shine, Laura Mercier's tinted lipbalms and Dior's lip treatment but they were all incredibly waxy and dried my lips out. The lip chic is so incredible that I wear in lieu of a lip balm because it is so moisturizing. (In fact, I find …Read more

I have 8 of the Chantecaille eyeshadows (Perle, Shell, Coriander, Meterorite, Sel, and 3 from the New Classics collection) in refills in the customizable Ma Palette. As the review notes below, these shadows are light, delicate, and suitable for elegant (not dramatic) looks. If you buy the refills, you can pop them in and out of a palette quite easily using a pin. You do have to be very careful …Read more

This mascara looks beautiful in the tube and on the lashes. It leaves a healthy glossy finish. However, I'm giving it a poor review because it smudged after just two hours. (It wasn't a slight smudge either, it was the full on panda eye smudge!) To be fair, I have really oily Asian eyelids...for those of you with normal eyelids, I think the product would work much better.

I had this in Alabaster over the winter when I was NC15-20 and I use Vanilla now that I am NC25. This is an extremely light foundation (sheer to sheer-medium coverage) that leaves a natural-glow finish. It's formulated in Japan and has a lot of similarities to other Japanese cream foundations, namely that it has a light gel texture to it, and contains a lot of water (around 60% I think). The …Read more

I have to agree with the other reviewers that this product was horrible. I am a huge Chantecaille fan and I bought it because it is the first primer that Chantecaille has come out with. The bottom line is that this "primer" is thick, made me incredibly greasy and oily, and created a lot of slippage in my foundation. I don't even think that it would work well for dry skin types …Read more
