Here are the swatches that I promised for the Chantecaille Sea Turtle Palette and Whale compact. I took the pictures again in natural light…. I think they really show how amazing these items are:
Inside, there is a sheet to suggest what you might use the colors for. Needless to say, I’m throwing that out. lol
Love! These are big pans of product… about on par with Make Up For Ever. And the palette is refillable… so when you use these colors up (if you choose to use them at all) you can refill them with other Chantecaille colors.
And I have some good news… I know you guys were worried about messing up that lovely etching and overspray. You can just work around it! The overspray is only on the etching… underneath, the color runs true to the bottom. I’ve swatched this palette and used it once, and the beautiful turtles are still intact.
It swatches an amazing golden color… with flecks of rose and bronze. It’s very sheer… I can see using this as a highlighter, not as a blush. The price tag on the highlighter is a bit steep, considering it’s practical performance. It’s beautiful to have, but not necessary. I’d say, if you were going to buy anything from this collection, the Sea Turtle Palette is a lot more bang for your buck.
