Opulence with a conscience, {Chantecaille} is famously passionate about philanthropy, specifically, raising money for our oceans, forests and wonderful wildlife. With each seasonal charity collection proving to be more spellbinding than the last, we couldn't wait to feast our eyes on The Safari Chic range that's just joined the herd! Cue the stampede...

Starring an elephant-embossed palette you'll never forget and a beautifully chic lipstick, the new collection is made in support of Space for Giants — an invaluable conservation organisation that addresses the increasing conflict that has come as a result of Africa's wild landscapes shrinking. Their holistic approach includes preserving habitats and encouraging co-existence by training and funding wildlife rangers to counter poachers, building elephant-safe electric fences to protect crops and working with governments to establish a "wildlife economy".

Beyond the vital work these releases support, they're also adored for their luxury design, flawless performance and delectable textures. On an expedition to grant luminous lids, {The Safari Chic Collection: Eye Trio} holds an elegant elephant-inspired trio of warm neutral shades. Speaking of the colourway, imagine the soft, burnished tones of a sun setting over the plains on safari — that's what inspired the co-founder, Sylvie and her daughter Olivia. These highly wearable, suede-textured neutral Eye Shine shades were chosen to complement all skin tones and give a natural, defined look to the eyes.

As for {The Safari Chic Collection: Lip Veil}, the intensely hydrating and luminous formula is enriched with sustainable, Fair Wild-certified organic baobab oil to leave lips luxuriously soft and smooth. This limited-edition Lip Veil is embossed with an elephant on the bullet to symbolise the non-profit it supports. It comes three, flattering tones: pale, cool plum 'Plumeria'; warm cinnamon-brown 'Tamarind' and tawny rose 'Acacia'.

VIBRANT OCEANS

Made in partnership with WildAid – an NGO that works with governments to counter marine wildlife consumption – the Vibrant Oceans collection pays homage to vulnerable species, such as the ocean’s gentle giant: the whale shark. The widespread consumption of wild marine creatures threatens the existence of certain species and can be detrimental to human health with zoonotic disease outbreaks. By building public support to end wildlife consumption, this organisation hopes to dash the demand for the likes of sharks, rays, pangolin scales and rhino horn. From the rippled pans of the beautifully illuminating {Vibrant Oceans Radiance Chic Cheek And Highlighter Duo} to the ultra-glossy {Vibrant Oceans Lip Tint Hydrating Balm}, this collection sent waves through the beautysphere.

AFRICA'S VANISHING SPECIES

Created in support of charities across the continent, this limited edition collection pays tribute to—and benefits—six of Africa’s most endangered, vanishing species: the elephant, rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe, lion and pangolin. Up against a plethora of threats - think: shrinking habitats, conflict with humans and illegal poaching - these animals have an uncertain future. That's why Chantecaille partnered with six African wildlife conservation nonprofits, each selected for their notable impact on each species, in the hopes that it will help to secure a future for these vulnerable species and the people who live in harmony with them. This range was solely focused on the eyes; the beautiful {Luminescent Eye Shade} range and the {Africa's Vanishing Species Collection} — a luxury keepsake box that wrapped each of the intensely rich shadows in it, alongside limited edition, signed wildlife prints from photographer Mark Drury.
