Good morning everyone. I hope you are having a good start to your day. I have for you today Chantecaille's Tiger in the Wild Palette on loan from dear Miaka of Miaka's LIfe and Loves. I think both Miaka and I have a great weakness for pretty palettes. Tiger in the Wild is a gorgeous looking palette with a sleek silver metal casing.
It features a coral blush and three neutral eye shadows in Cream, Pewter and Indigo. The Indigo doesn't look indigo to be honest. It looks more like a dark grey.
It goes for USD $78. I love that 5% of the proceeds goes to conservation work but for the price I'm a little disappointed by the shadows. Though they are finely milled and soft, they lack that punch especially the indigo shade. The blush is soft and goes on sheer as well. I was hoping for more pigmentation. It feels exactly like my Coral Reefs palette.
Here is an eye look I did with this palette.
After priming my lids with Urban Decay's primer potion I applied Cream all over my lids.
Pewter on my lids up to my crease.
Indigo on the outer corner of my lids. Indigo applies very sheer and needed to be layered for a more pigmented look. Followed with my liquid liner.
Finally my Ardell's 108.
Coral blush on my cheeks.
I think that the Tigers in the Wild palette is very easy to use for every day looks. The colours are sheer and pretty. But for the hefty price tag I was hoping for a little more wow you know. I am underwhelmed by the quality of the palette apart and it is sad considering how pretty this palette looks.
