Couldn't Drag Me Away...Chantecaille Wild Horses Palette


2014 marks the year of the horse (also my Chinese zodiac sign), and I thought it would be fun to create something theme related using Chantecaille's Wild Horses palette (thank you, Justine :D).

I wanted the Wild Horses palette when it was first released, then convinced myself that I didn't need it (I told myself, "self you have a trillion shades like that in your collection, you DON'T need it!"). But, that was short lived and now I bring you this post.


Wild horses is a beautiful palette! Yes, the shades are not monumentally original. However, as I say (and, mostly to Aki), "it's not only about the color, it's also about texture, finish, quality and performance," and Chantecaille is a brand that excels in all those departments.

 Wild Horses Palette (swatched without over-spray), Hydra Chic Lipstick Persimmon. 

The four shades included in the palette are:

Palomino: a creamy, beige-blonde, can be used as an eye shadow or highlighter.

Freedom: a warm, yellow-based pink. My only issue with the palette was the over-spray on the blush, I LOVE it! When mixed together, I adored the stunning russet sheen it gave my cheeks. I didn't want it to go away, but was able to replicate it by layering the blush over a shimmery reddish-bronzer. Look beautiful on the eyes or cheeks.

Mustang: a soft, chestnut-bronze. Besides the eyes, look amazing on top of blushers.

Black Stallion: a rich black with a hint of midnight blue, can be used as a eye shadow or liner.

And another Chantecaille love, the Hydra Chic Lipstick in Persimmon. A vibrant, hydrating, glossy, Juicy persimmon color that leans a bit on the red side, but not too much.
