Inspired by the beauty of the holiday classic “The Nutcracker”, Clinique introduces the Nutcracker Suite Collection; a collection that captures the beauty and grace of the characters, costumes and scenery of the American Ballet Theatre’s performance. The Nutcracker Suite Collection offers two “acts” inspired by different aspects of the performance.
The Clinique Nutcracker Suite Collection includes:
Nutcracker Act I,$36
Inspired by the dazzling dance of the Snowflakes, The Nutcracker Act I Compact includes a Snowflake Suite eye shadow quad in soft pinks and a delicate pink Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Plié Pink. The Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($17) in Budding Blossom is the perfect complement. A dusting of Blended Face Powder in Snowflake Dreams ($24) completes the look.
Nutcracker Act II, $36
The Nutcracker Act II Compact is inspired by the whimsical land of the Sugar Plum Fairy. This palette includes a Sugar Plum Suite eye shadow quad in beautiful plum shades with shimmering white and silver tones, paired with a flushed pink Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Tutu Pink. The Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($17) in Flowering Freesia is the coordinating lip shade for this look. Finish with a dusting of Blended Face Powder in Snowflake Dreams ($24).
The Clinique Nutcracker Suite is an elegant and stunning collection; I can’t think of a better interpretation of the beauty of the holidays and the time-honored tradition of “The Nutcracker”. Each of the palettes is so pretty–and anyone regardless of their age would love the colors. You really can’t miss with either of the shade families: pinks and purples are so easy to wear. The Snowflake Dreams Blended Face Powder is sheer, with a subtle veil of shimmer to it. Perfect for highlighting the face, shoulders and decollete. And I wouldn’t save the powder just for the holidays!
The Clinique Nutcracker Suite Holiday Collection is available now at clinique.com. I’d definitely recommend anything from this collection as a gift–or as a treat to yourself.
