An iridescent brown harmony. Four luminous shades enriched in hyaluronic acid around brown, for a warm, glamorous smokey eye.
Les Ombres Chilwa contains 91% ingredients of natural origin, is formulated without microplastic, talc or silicone and is not tested on animals. An infusion of ultra-concentrated pigments, which allow you to obtain an intense, buildable result, from the very first application, using your fingers or a brush.
The paper-encased refill can either be used as its own distinct eyeshadow palette, or it can be placed inside the leather case.
The eyeshadows are available in 5 colour palettes, inspired by the multitude of hues that can be seen in riverbeds at various hours of the day. Loyal to our commitment to the planet, we named these color combinations after renowned rivers that are essential for the planet, yet are slowly disappearing. Whilst Lake Chilwa was providing for the region’s inhabitants, it has now dried up.
Our powders take care of your skin whilst making you look beautiful thanks to the hyaluronic acid microspheres's different molecular weights which guarantee long-lasting hydration.
We replaced silicone with rice powder, a natural source of Vitamin B that helps your cells regenerate for velvety and smooth skin.
RESPONSIBLE MICA INITIATIVE
We only use responsibly produced Mica whose traceability is guaranteed by the label "responsible mica initiative".
Our eyeshadows are enriched with nourishing shea butter, an ancestral and natural ingredient from sustainable harvests.

Sunflower seed oil is a natural ingredient used in our eyeshadow formula for moisturization. The oil contains a large amount of vitamin E which acts as an anti-aging agent and is obtained through an extract of the seeds of sunflower harvested in sustainable fields.

We answer all your questions, without exception
We take the utmost care in formulating our products, selecting only ingredients that are entirely safe and effective. We guarantee that in addition to the 1300 ingredients prohibited in cosmetics by the European Union, our formulas are developed without beeswax, animal fat and microplastics. Our "Blacklist", which defines all the ingredients banned from our formulas, can be viewed below.
Microplastics, or miniscule, plastic particles that are hardly visible to the eye, are often used in cosmetics and personal care products as emulsifying agents or fillers.
These materials make their way from our homes, through our sewage systems and out into the oceans. Not only do these non-biodegradable particles destroy the environment, but once they are consumed by sea animals, these elements make their way along the food chain and ultimately become ingested by humans. It is thus indispensable that we avoid the use of microplastics when developing products.
We have built sustainability into our product designs in order to both raise awareness around the overabundance of disposable packaging, as well as to create beautiful objects that endure. We chose to replace plastic with fine craftsmanship by creating precious, refillable cases using upcycled leather from the Tanneries du Puy in France. Timeless objects that can be passed on from one generation to the next.
Our beauty objects are manufactured from upcycled leather by the prestigious Tanneries du Puy, certified by the label Entreprise du 'Patrimoine Vivant’ (living heritage company), with a unique finish obtained through vegetable tanning.
Handcrafted from artisanal leather, veins, small marks or irregularities on the surface of the leather are natural characteristics of this quality of skin and are not considered as imperfections.
We have also developed our lipstick case and powder case in a black, vegan leather made from a unique, recycled fiber material created by Stella McCartney.
To refill Le Poudrier, gently insert a small, pointed object, such as a needle, into the hole hidden at the back of the compact case. Apply light pressure until the powder refill pops out. Place the new refill inside, lightly pressing upon it until it clicks into place.
