Here’s a perfect gift for the ballet lover in your life–or really anyone who appreciates pretty, soft makeup. Clinique partnered with the American Ballet Theater to introduce The Nutcracker Suite collection, based off of the famed holiday ballet.
“We had the privilege of touring the American Ballet Theater archives to view The Nutcracker costumes,” says 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 color collection that brings to life the whimsy of The Nutcracker."
The collection is available in two color themes Act I (shown above) or Act II (below). Act I has lighter, softer pinks and Act II features more purples, befitting the Sugarplum Fairy. Both feature a palette with a blush and four eyeshadows ($36), a Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($17) and the same Blended Face Powder in Snowflake Dreams ($24), which can be dusted along your shoulders, neck and chest for a gorge shimmer.
