My only previous experience of it was to look at it longingly on the Space NK website, to puzzle over how to accurately pronounce the name (I know that now) and wonder how they could charge so much for their limited edition palettes.
Now onto the shades. The palette is four pan and consists of three very wearable eyeshadows and one cheek colour. As mentioned before, all have a tiger's head that is raised up out of the original depth of the pan (probably haven't expressed that at all well!). Chantecaille state the eyeshadows as cream, pewter and indigo, and the blush as persimmon. I would agree with all four, and can't for the life of me come up with a better way to describe them.

Although at first glance the blush looks a little unwearable on a very cool, pale skin, it is less intense than it appears, sheer in texture, and reminds me of an old Stila blush I used up years ago. It was a firm favourite. This Chantecaille shade might be just the thing to part me from my beloved pinks and roses, I am in a bit of a rut cheek wise. The eye shades are all going to be staples of mine. I tried the pewter in my crease today with a little smudged along the lower lash line, paired with a plum lip and the combination was a winner. I can see it being my go to look for autumn/winter.
In the photos of the palette itself you get a lot of the shimmer coming through because of the overlay. I hope you can see the matte sections which is where this has worn through and is a much truer reflection of the colour.
