Clinique The Nutcracker Suite Holiday 2014 Collection

Clinique The Nutcracker Suite Holiday 2014 Collection

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!

Clinique The Nutcracker Suite Holiday 2014

“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.

Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($17)
The super-nourishing, multitasking chubby stick lip balms are loaded with mango and shea butters as well as antioxidants to help pamper and protect lips. The immediate and lasting moisturizing balm is perfect for dry, delicate lips during the winter months. Budding Blossom complements The Nutcracker Act I compact; while Flowering Freesia was chosen to complement the ballet inspired tones and shades of The Nutcracker Act II compact.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I love the Nutcracker Suite, and I love these beautiful, soft neutral to cool shades! It’s a close race, but I think the plums are calling to me the loudest. 😉
