The Chantecaille Protect the Wolves collection, fresh for Fall 2015, has been in my regular rotation as of late. Anchored by the Protect the Wolves Eye Shade Trio, the collection (available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter) is a gorgeous fusion of lush greens, neutral taupes and subtle pinky nudes, all entirely flattering and wearable!
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the collection in action as well as the Bottom Line...

I am particularly beguiled by makeup when it contributes to a worthy cause. Such is the case for the *Protect the Wolves Eye Shade Trio (also available at Neiman Marcus and Net-A-Porter). Featuring three creamy and pigmented shades with delicate satin finishes, this melange of charcoal, taupe and deep green can be worn separately or together for an array of smoky neutral looks.
Emblazoned with wolf faces, the shadows are buttery smooth and impart an impressive amount of saturated color, even in a single swatch. I find that I get wonderful lasting power from Chantecaille eye shadows and this trio is no exception...simply a stunning way to embrace a green-tinged neutral smoky eye.

Next up, is the *Luster Glide Silk Infused Eyeliner in Black Forest (also available at Neiman Marcus and Net-A-Porter). This deep green-meets-teal eyeliner applies smoothly and stays in place for hours; I am fundamentally impressed with the longevity of this formula!
Black Forest is so on trend for the green and blue movement we've been witnessing in beauty as of late and the sophisticated pop of color this pencil affords makes it well worth the investment. I like to wear this shade by applying it on my water line to add definition and drama.

For cheeks, the nude pink *Ella Cheek Shade (also available at Neiman Marcus and Net-A-Porter) is a demure beauty. Embossed with the face of a sweet and wise wolf, this matte yet creamy formula becomes one with the skin once swept onto the cheeks.
Ella is decidedly subtle (my absolutely preference when it comes to blush) for a softly flushed look that compliments a spectrum of makeup looks. If you adore pale pink blushes with no shimmer, this this LE gem is a must.

Finally, the Lip Chic in Patience (also available in Neiman Marcus and Net-A-Porter) is a lesson in pinky nude perfection. Deep enough to add color to the face while staying light enough for a nude lips effect, the hydrating lushness of Patience is supremely lovely.
Although there is no visible shimmer, the formula imparts radiance on the lips and can adjust from sheer to nearly full opacity with a few coats...simply gorgeous!

In the images that follow, I am wearing:
- *Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation in Cream (reviewed HERE)
- *Ella Cheek Shade: Applied with a fluffy blush brush on the apples of my cheeks.
- *Protect the Wolves Eye Shade Trio: I blended the taupe shade across my upper eyelid and along my lower lash line, added the green shade in the space closest to my upper lashes and a dash of the charcoal at the crease for additional depth.
- *Luster Glide Silk Infused Eyeliner in Black Forest: I ran this rich green along my lower waterline. Once set, this luxurious liner does not budge!
- *Lip Chic in Patience: I applied 2-3 weightless coats for maxium opacity and shine.
