Clinique The Nutcracker Suite Holiday 2014 Collection is a new timeless collection created in collaboration with the America Ballet Theatre that brings the magic and holiday spirit to your makeup collection this season!
“The Nutcracker,” performed for the first time in 1892, is a world-renowned perennial holiday classic that is brought to life annually by the internationally recognized American Ballet Theatre, America’s National Ballet Company. Clinique was inspired by the time-honored classic to capture the beauty and grace of the performance in a magically new makeup collection!
“We had the privilege of touring the American Ballet Theatre archives to view ‘The Nutcracker’ costumes,” said Janet Pardo, Senior Vice President Clinique Global Product Development. “Seeing the tulles and velvet fabrics in vivid pinks, glittering whites and vibrant purples immersed us in the beauty of the performance. It inspired us to develop a colour collection that brings to life the whimsy of ‘The Nutcracker’.”
The Clinique The Nutcracker Suite Holiday 2014 Collection will release in November in two acts.
Clinique The Nutcracker Act I Compact ($36)
Inspired by the dazzling dance of the Snowflakes, The Nutcracker Act I color compact includes a Snowflake Suite eye shadow quad in soft pinks and sultry tones, and a delicate pink Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Plié Pink.
Clinique The Nutcracker Act II Compact ($36)
Inspired by the whimsical land of the Sugar Plum Fairy, The Nutcracker Act II color compact includes a Sugar Plum Suite eye shadow quad that couples beautiful plum shades with shimmering white and silver tones, paired with a flushed pink Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Tutu Pink.
Clinique The Nutcracker Blended Face Powder in Snowflake Dreams ($24)
A new Blended Face Powder in Snowflake Dreams was created to mirror the shimmering elegance of the performance. Perfect for shoulders, neck and chest, the new powder imparts a beautiful shimmer – ideal for any holiday party.
