The Elephant Palette (£74) is one of those items that as soon as you see it in real life you can't help but be wowed. I knew I had to buy it after reading the great review over at bestthingsinbeauty.
The elegant deep dark green palette reveals 4
elephant embossed shadows in lush earthy colours, the shades really
encapsulates the autumnal season.
It contains Ivory, which is true to
its name and has a satin finish. Its a great base shade which obliterates any
redness/discolouration from the eyelids and gently brightens the area.
Grasslands is a medium smoky green with a shimmer finish, it doesn't
contain a yellow tone like a lot of greens. Red Earth is a rusty copper
with a shimmer finish. Iron Ore is a deep charcoal/grey, and
though the base is matte it contains tiny sparkle.
The pigment is
superb and the shadows apply true to how they look in the pan and wear
well. Though I find Iron Ore has a dryer texture than the others (which are smooth and blend easily) its
great as a liner.

Unfortunately my camera washed out the colour so it looks subdued below but hopefully it gives you a bit of an idea.
The colour palette brings together an unexpected range of shades that
complement each other well and gives an interesting eye look whilst
Once again Chantecaille's diligence to raising awareness and giving
support to animals has to be applauded, five percent of proceeds from the Elephant Palette will be donated to the David Sheldrick Wildlife
Trust, an organisation that rescues, fosters and release baby elephants
orphaned by ivory poaching.
