Clinique Play in the Darks Fall 2007

Rich, luxurious hues mark CLINIQUE’s modern fall collection: Play in the Darks.

Finding inspiration on the runways, this collection is all about elegance and sophistication with intense color that ranges from soft and sultry to bold and dramatic.

Clinique Play in the Darks Fall 2007

Play in the Darks. Fall 2007 has some wonderful treats in store for us– including new shades of the fabulous Brush-On Cream Liner and joining Black Honey (the Almost Lipstick that we all bow down before) are three new limited edition shades of the best-selling formula. Can you believe?!

Here’s the scoop:

Brush-On Cream Liner

  • Black Honey
  • Deep Brown
  • Graphite (limited edition)
  • Egyptian (limited edition)

Application Tip: Lightly dip the eye liner brush into the cream liner pot. For the most precise application, dab off any excess product on the back of your hand, using it as a palette. If you don’t have a steady hand, draw three dashes along your lash line—outer corner, middle, and inner corner. Then, go back and connect the dashes.

  • Yikes! She looks like Lisa Hartman back on the days she was on Knots Landing. And that isn’t a good thing.

  • I think these colors are gorgeous! I love Fall color collections.

  • Fabulous! I love it when a company actually LISTENS to its loyal fans and acts accordingly. I have been an enthusiast of Black Honey since 1992 and I adore the Almost Lipstick formulation. Now if only they would bring back my beloved Bronze Lilac! :-)

    Can’t wait to try the Black Raspberry…sounds gorgeous.

  • Does anyone know the products used on the model? I can’t find them on their website.
