Sure, sharks can be scary. But what’s even scarier is a world without them. Remember- shark week without sharks is just … week. French cosmetics company Chantecaille is one of the most prestigious beauty brands out there, and their commitment to great products extends to great causes like the BLOOM Association’s mission to ban unsafe shark harvesting and shark fin trade. Their makeup palettes, while undeniably gorgeous, also make us think about causes that tend to fly under the radar – like the problems facing our oceans. Read on for all the details of this beautiful new palette!
Even if you’re not a shark buff, (but, um, who isn’t?) there’s no denying the gorgeous shades in this limited edition palette. Three stunning eye shadows: Great White (white sandy beige), Grey Reef (sandy grey), and Black Tip (deep ocean blue and black). The set also includes the glistening Sea Anemone Cheek Shade, a super flattering coral blush that looks great against every skin tone. The colors are inspired by the sea, support the sea, and look great for Spring 2013 (possibly the trendiest season for makeup, ever?) — so what’s not to love?
The Save The Sharks palette is available for $83. The steep pricetag can be justified when you consider that 5% of the profits from the sale of the palette will be donated to the BLOOM Association, which aims to ban all unregulated shark fin trade. The organization has already been able to effectively ban all Hong Kong Luxury Hotels from serving shark fin soup, a huge concern that we (the general soup-eating population) might otherwise never learn about. Plus, you get shimmering, fancy French cosmetics out of the deal, so everyone wins!
