Amongst the newly-released Spring releases, Chantecaille The Glacier Eye Shade Trio wowed me the most, presentation-wise. The scenic glacier-inspired palette is too beautiful to touch, let alone use without feeling absolute remorse. I ordered mine online, including the Galactic Lip Shine (Aurora) to satisfy my demi-obssession for all-things Spring.

A limited edition for Spring 2015, The Glacier Eye Shade Trio ($70, 7 g .25 oz) is created with neutral-adoring women in mind. Featuring three muted shades, namely Polar Light (matte taupe), Iceberg (iridescent white), and Arctic Dust (sheen taupe-lilac), these eyeshadows are soft and creamy with light to moderate pigmentation.

The silver case is hefty but rather prone to fingerprints. It comes with a decent-sized mirror and mini-brush with commendable bristle quality. Of course I read your inquisitive mind like a real sister… yes, those silver glaciers were unfortunately overspray! I was quite bummed because I thought it was a genius addition to crack the neutral theme #wishfulthinking

If I may reiterate again without sounding like a broken record, these eyeshadows are very subtle when applied dry. With that said, save your time and effort from repeatedly building the colors because they appear best when applied wet. Effortlessly stunning like the Arctic’s melting glaciers, these eyeshadows are sublime for daytime wear. Applied over an eye primer, they last about eight to nine hours with minimal fading. Love neutral and taupe? I know this palette will appeal to you. Love exuberance? sorry girl, it ain’t for you.

Here are dry and wet swatches for your reference (standalone shade and mixed with overspray):

I’m a bold lipstick babe more than anything but Galactic Lip Shine Aurora (holographic pink/lilac, $34, 3ml .1 oz) captivated me. Reason being, it’s a serum and gloss in one! It feels luxuriously divine with delectable sugary vanilla scent. Infused with raspberry seed oil and mango butter, my lips stay hydrated whether worn alone or applied over a lipstick.

It comes in a tube with pointed brush for precise application. This hybrid serum/gloss does not feel waxy or tacky at all. Wear time is rather short-lived (two hours at the most) so reapplication is definitely needed.
