Beauty in Botany
Better late than never. This certainly rings true in the case ofbotanical beauty and skincare Chantecaille. Founded in 1998 by Sylvie Chantecaille, the New York-based brand has made its way through numerous departmental stores and beauty halls, narrowly missing the South East Asian market. Until now, that is.
From mid April onwards, Chantecaille will launch its first dedicated beauty counter at Takashimaya’s Beauty Hall. Over there, you’ll find the full range of the brand’s skincare and makeup. Yep, no more lugging your haul from overseas trips, or getting friends to do you a favour.
And, considering it’s the brand’s 20th anniversary this year, expect special collection releases along with limited-edition collectibles.
Two To Try
While Rose de Mai is featured in one a many products for its soothing properties, this dedicated Rose de Mai collection is best for those who want to start an anti-ageing skincare routine early. Spritz some of its pure rosewater every afternoon for a hydrating perk-me-up.
Fans of the brand’s pigmented and creamy eye shadows should also pick up the 20th Anniversary Palette. This year’s edition comes impressed with elephants and lions. Why? The brand highly prides itself on saving and protecting endangered species, with parts of its proceeds going towards the causes. The above two are this year’s focus. And no, Chantecaille doesn’t test on animals.
