Every August, Chantecaille release their autumn charity collection and this year it is wolf-themed. 5% of the proceeds of each “Protect the Wolf” collection product will be donated to the Northwest Conservation group. I love the animal palettes, and this years collection is a nice one:
A nude lip, a smokey eye palette and a peachy blush, it’s bang on trend for a winter palette (well, if you can wear nude lips, it is). Let’s take a closer look:
From left to right in the eye palette, we have Evergreen, which is a sparkling blackened pine green. Then there is Timber Wolf, a beautiful metallic old gold taupe, and finally Midnight which is a slightly shimmering soft black.
The taupe (for Chantecaille are the queens of taupe) is perfect for every day, and you can use the black and green either as liners for a daytime look, or smoke them out for a more dramatic night time look. If you use them without a primer, you will get a very subtle look, but the above has been swatched over primer.

Pretty and versatile, and will cost £65 when released in August
The Lip Chic is called Patience, and is the usually balm-y feeling wondrous texture of the lip chics. A soft, peachy nude, it’s sheer, but not unpigmented. Sadly, this particular shade is one that makes me look like death warmed up, so I won’t be wearing it out of the house. It’ll cost £30 when it is released in August, however.
A good companion to Patience Lip Chic is the Ella Blush, which comes complete with an embossed wolf head, as does the eye palette. Another soft peach, this is a perfect complement to the smokey eye palette, and is a good match to the lip colour. It will cost £33 when it is released in August.
Here’s the entire collection swatched – Ella blush at the top, Patience Lip Chic at the bottom. and with the eye palette in the middle. It’s a well thought out. and tightly edited collection.
Will you be helping Chantecaille save the wolves this year?
