Not only is this one of the most beautiful palettes available currently, it’s also in a great cause. The cheek and eye Tiger In The Wild palette supports TRAFFIC, an international wildlife trade monitoring organisation that saves tigers in the wild. The shocking facts are that wild tigers have declined in numbers from 5,000 in 1998 to only 3,200 now. 5,000 wasn’t enough in the first place, so add another decade to these stats and you can see how they could quite easily disappear all together within our lifetime.
The palette costs £73, and 5% of that goes to TRAFFIC. In fact, Chantecaille are known for their beautiful make up creations that theme to their causes; remember the beautiful butterfly palette from a couple of years ago? Sublime.
It’s available now.

The colours are gorgeous and I’m partial to anything that involves a tiger….
I just watched a documentary on BBC1 about tigers in India and Bhutan, it makes this palette even more movingly beautiful.
I don’t think I could ever bear to use this palette even if I could afford it. I’d have to be able to afford two, so I could keep one intact.
I’m so undecided about this one. I have never tried Chantecaille and I can’t check it in real life so I’d have to order on the web. This palette looks fantastic but it’s so expensive, I don’t know if that price is justified… Ah, decisions, decisions…
I can’t wait to get this, but I’ve not seen it in my local Space NK yet.
I love Chantecaille eyeshadow and wear it cos I am allergic to regular stuff. They usually cost £22 each, so I guess this makes the palette “good value”. The texture of the eyeshadows is very impressive very silky and relatively long lasting. Not sure about that orange shade though!
I am so tempted by this palette. I can’t really afford it but I will be leaving strategic notes everywhere in the house! I like the philanthropic side of the brand too.
Maybe I’m being really negative, but it seems to me that this product probably has a huge mark-up to have that kind of price – there’s no way it cost anything like that to make and distribute etc. So could they not have spared more than 5% for their chosen charity?
I’d never be able to bring myself to use this – its too beautiful!
Gah. So pretty. I wouldn’t want to use it for fear of wiping off the tiger imprint!
