Christmas is nearly here and Clinique have released a gorgeous new festive collection, the Clinique Nutcracker Suite. This collection is a really different take on the festive season and consists of lots of pinks and purples instead of the classic christmas reds and golds.
The Palette I have is the Nutcracker Act I - Snowflake Suite. Within the Palette is four eye shadows, one blush and two blush applicators. The compact itself is a great size, with a nice big mirror which I always feel is essential with a palette. The four eyeshadows are as follows:
First up is a white as snow shade which has a very pretty shimmer to it, and is perfect for highlighting the inner corner of the eyes. The next shade is my favourite as it is unlike any eyeshadow I own. Its a very subtle glittery soft pink which really looks stunning on the eyes. The third shade is a lovely taupe shade that I will probably get the most use out of, as its really gorgeous both in the crease of the eye and as an all over wash of colour. Last but not least we have a charcoal black shade which alike the soft pink has tiny flecks of glitter in it, which can be used to create a very dramatic eye look.
The blush included in the palette is called 'Plie Pink' and is a lovely bright pink that gives a beautiful flush of colour on the cheeks.
I think the Clinique Nutcracker Palettes would make such a lovely gift for Christmas! The Palette also comes in the Nutcracker Act II which contains more purple toned shades. I really would love to get my hands on the Snowflake Dreams Blended Face Powder from the collection which is a highlight which sounds, and looks heavenly.
