Coming Soon: Protected Paradise Eyes and Face Compacts

Jan 8 2008 - 8:00am

This March, Chantecaille will release two palettes for spring called Protected Paradise Eyes and Protected Paradise Face. Made from finely milled, highly pigmented illuminating powders, each palette is embossed with intricate marine ecosystem images that reflect the colors from clothing seen on the Spring 2008 runways [1].

Both of the compacts have the same design, but they incorporate different colors. Once you open up the neat nickel top you'll find images of two fish that represent endangered species, a school of smaller fish, a sea horse, coral and sea grass. Each of these images has been chosen to depict some of the most important parts of aquatic life that are currently being threatened by humans.

Both compacts sell for $90 each. Five percent of proceeds will be donated to the Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation, which supports research pertaining to marine preserves and fish sustainability. For a description of the colors used in each of the palettes,
