I purchased all three summer pieces from the Chantecaille Sunbeam Collection and love every single item. They’re quite pricey but the colors are beautiful and easy to wear. I love the lip tints for an effortless wash of color and the highlighter is a stunner. The neon green/yellow packaging is fun for summer too. I ordered mine from Chantecaille.
Lip Tint Hydrating Balms
There are two Lip Tint Hydrating Balms ($35 each for 1 g/0.03 oz) which are super petite and small. They’re incredibly expensive given the amount of product you get. If you’re willing to splurge I think the colors and formula are excellent.
Marigold is a perfect neutral everyday pink rose. Sunflower is a soft mocha. Colors are medium in coverage. Texture is smooth. Formula is hydrating. No detectable scent. Lasting power is medium since they’re a balm with a glossy formula.
They have about the same coverage and shine as the ones packaged in the blue tubes from the Vibrant Oceans collection a couple years ago.
Swatches in indirect light:
Sunbeam Cheek and Eye Shade
The Sunbeam Cheek and Eye Shade ($82) is a stunning highlighter in a multi dimensional color. It has a beautiful champagne, bronze, pink glow – so hard to describe and photos don’t do it justice. It’s definitely a unique one in my book. It has that smooth gel/powder formula and can be used on eyes and cheeks.

Sharing a look at a few other favorites I’m wearing including the Future Skin Cushion Foundation in Nude, Perfect Blur Finishing Powder in Light/Medium, Real Bronze Bronzer in Sirena, Luminescent Eye Shades in Cheetah and Giraffe (also swatched Lion). I think the items are 100% worth the splurge as I purchased all of these and have repurchased the cushion and powder. I do think they’re overpriced but I really love the quality, texture, colors and wear them often.
If you’ve been wondering whether the new summer collection items are worth the splurge, I think they are. You can find the summer items available at Chantecaille and Neiman Marcus. Nordstrom still has the lip balms. Colors are limited-edition so if you have your eye on them I’d recommend purchasing soon.
