On thin ice

According to serial complainers — i.e. a majority of our population — the grass is perpetually greener on the other side. Food tastes better, smiles come easier, and 32-degree Celsius weather only exists as a punchline rather than a cruel reality (R.I.P our sweaty, overheated selves). And while some of us cope by flying to the farthest reach of the sun, it appears that we can never quite outrun our demons. See: Global warming; the stuff of melting glaciers, destroyed habitats, and the one big environmental crisis that Trump still refuses to acknowledge.

Thankfully, it is not an approach held by everyone else. This is demonstrated by Chantecaille's latest Spring campaign, which is aptly named the Polar Ice Collection. Working to combat climate change one sapling at time, the brand promises to plant a tree for each sale of their limited-edition Lip Cristal, thus producing more oxygen to counteract carbon dioxide emissions responsible for said predicament. This, in turn, saves the polar bears, arctic foxes, and various other endangered species found in the arctic regions.

 

It is a sound move, especially considering the enticing nature of the Chantecaille Lip Cristal. Housed in an all-too-adorable polar bear casing, it contains a creamy formula that envelopes lips in glittery, sparkling colour without appearing OTT. The end result? A three-dimensional, glimmering lip look that will have the compliments raining in.

 

The collection also comprises of a Polar Ice Palette — picture nine cool-toned shimmering eye shades encased within a glistening snowflake-inspired case — astral nail polishes in hues of the Aurora Borealis, and a loose powder that gifts an instantaneous radiant glow to skin. In sum? A glittery, wintery wonderland enough to transform us heat-dwelling denizens into literal ice queens (yaaas).

 

Now sit back, crank up the air-conditioning, and browse the full range below. A visit to the North Pole is long overdue.
