Chantecaille Fall 2017 Save The Forest Eyeshadow Palette


Every minute, 50 acres of rain forest are destroyed, and two-dozen species become extinct every day. In the Brazilian Amazon, the world’s largest rain forest, deforestation rose in 2015 for the first time in nearly a decade, to nearly two million acres from August 2015 to July 2016.

We Need Our Forests To Keep Us Beautiful -- As the ‘lungs of our earth,’ our forests are the planet’s sources of oxygen and water, and act as agents to stabilize our climate. Chantecaille conservation focus for Fall 2017 is the crisis of our disappearing forests and the ripple effect it has on humans and animals, like gorillas, who depend on them for survival. Deforestation kills our globe’s natural green spaces to make way for relentless plantings of soy, palm oil and cattle grazing grounds. As the largest source of carbon dioxide emissions after fossil fuel burning, it causes 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions.


“When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future.” - Dian Fossey

Missing In The Mist -- Gorillas are slowly losing their grasp on this earth as their natural habitats, the forests, are being destroyed by deforestation. Chantecaille's trip to the Congo in the winter of 2016 showed the brand firsthand that these kind, intelligent creatures, which are 98% identical to humans in their DNA, are the perfect symbol of a changing planet. Deforestation is slowly reaching their habitats in the Congo and in Uganda, as the earth is tilled for human production and consumption.


SAVE THE FOREST EYESHADOW PALETTE ($85) -- The four shades in the palette were inspired by the lush, natural beauty of Virunga National Park in the Congo, home to some of the last remaining gorillas on the planet. From the spectacular early morning mist that rolls through the forest to the vibrant golden light in the sky at daybreak, the overwhelming beauty of this densely forested oasis served as our muse this season. A portion of the proceeds from the Save The Forests Eye Shade Palette will benefit the Rainforest Alliance and its energized, impactful work in protecting our planet’s dwindling forests and the precious wildlife that depends on them.
