I’ve known about Chantecaille’s new collection for a while as the press preview was a couple of months ago, and now I can reveal just how amazing it is!
The Fall 2013 Wild Horses Collection features some great and timeless pieces, including Supreme Cils Mascara (£45) which has a rosewater infused formula, Persimmon Hydra Chic (£29), the perfect tomato red lipstick and Le Stylo Ultra Slim (£27), the most fabulous, fine-tipped liquid eyeliner which I have been using to death recently. Eyeliner lovers, I urge you to buy this!
These items aren’t the cheapest but they are beautiful quality and Chantecaille products are used by many top make-up artists.
But there’s also a worthy ethical reason why you should should invest in the Wild Horses Palette (£74) which includes an eyeliner, eyeshadow, highlighter and cheek colour – 5% of all proceeds will be donated to the Humane Society and their efforts to save wild horses.
Wild horses have graced the American landscape for centuries but in the last 40 years, over 22 million acres of wild horse habitat has been lost to make room for fracking and mining companies. Making sure these beautiful animals are able to roam freely means keeping a part of earth untouched and unexploited.
The Wild Horses Collection is cruelty free and paraben-free, and does not include lanolin, animal or mineral derivatives. It’s available from September at Space NK, Harrods, Fenwick Bond Street and Liberty.
