Brrr! Chantecaille's wintry spring palette

I have no idea why Chantecaille would release a glacier-themed palette for spring, but I guess it's appropriate given that we're still getting snow in early March.  Ugh!  I also was not thrilled with the design.  While it's worthy of my collection, I still feel like Chantecaille could have done so much more.  I would have loved to see a jaw-droppingly detailed alpine scene captured in a highlighting/eye shadow powder, similar to these but in a shimmery white, silver, blue and taupe color scheme.  Anyway, it's the usual spiel - you buy the palette and Chantecaille donates 5% of the proceeds to a charity.  This time the money will go to the Extreme Ice Survey.  (The name makes me think of a certain faux energy's not a regular ice survey, it's an EXTREEEEEEEME ice survey!  To the MAAAXXXX!)

I enlisted the help of Makeup Museum staff member Ugly Yeti to showcase this eye shadow trio - as you can imagine, he was quite fond of it since it reminds him of his natural habitat.

The big guy wanted to make sure you saw the pretty, shimmery mountains on the inside of the palette.

Chantecaille's website has some breathtaking photos of glaciers, but if you want more there's also an exhibition of photos and paintings entitled "Vanishing Ice:  Alpine and Polar Landscapes in Art, 1775-2012" at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection currently.

What do you think of this trio?  I'm off to make some hot chocolate for Ugly much as he loves the snow, I think he likes my homemade hot chocolate even more.  :)
