Chantecaille Eye Shade in Ginger looks rather underwhelming in the pan but it sings on the lid. See what is to love about this eyeshadow.
WHAT IT DOES
It appears transparent when applied wet and opaque when applied dry. It layers beautifully with no flaking or powdery appearance.
Instead of glittery looking shimmer, the non-matte shades have a lovely shifting iridescence that looks great on eyes over 30.
There is a brightening quality, similar to YSL Touche Eclat but not as pink.
It is not a overly warm or orange peach. It pairs well with shimmers, mattes, neutrals and a smokey eye.
WHAT WE LOVE
It has a finish like a finely milled powder.
Multiple layers don’t look cakey. No fallout, no chalky buildup. There is a slew of flattering shades. The formulation is free of unfriendly chemicals.
This particular shade, Ginger, is our favorite Brightening Eyeshadow.
We love the Chantecaille Eye Shade in Ginger as a subtle brightening base for pale skin: it adds just a hint of pink pale peach that looks like natural skin but better.
Basically what we wish our lids looked like naturally.
