French luxe beauty brand, Chantecaille, is hosting a two-day sample sale which started this morning. I was able to check out the offerings before they opened to the public.

Doors hadn’t opened and the line already wrapped around in the lobby. A sign that this will be a mobbed event. Popular products will likely be sold out!

The sale is taking place in a small space on the 5th Floor of 584 Broadway, same building as its offices.

Discounts are about half-off for many items and not even 50% off for others.

The items are neatly placed on tables – the main room has makeup and skin care in in a separate room. Pricing is posted on walls throughout the space.

There is a pretty good selection of product. We’ll start with makeup… there’s a number of lipsticks and lip glosses, lip liners as well. Eye shadows, including limited edition pallets ($45) are available as are compacts, powders and cheek palettes. There’s items for eyebrows as well and liquid Lumiere ($31) – great for highlighting.

Moving onto skincare… One of the staffers helping me (thanks, Holly!) told me about the brand’s hydrating Bio-Lifting products from serums ($140) to creams ($222).

Holly also described the several face masks they had on offer, telling me that the Hibiscus smoothing mask ($59) and how very hydrating it is so I thought I’d give it a try. Another standout is the pure rosewater ($48).

If you do check out the sale and are not that familiar with the products, there’s plenty of staff to help you.
