This new holiday collection from Clinique confirms what I already suspected: purple is the color of the season.
Clinique Holiday 2009: Black Tie Violets is a collection of purples ranging from violet berries to rich plums. The colors are clear and bold while remaining sweet and girly.
In this collection you’ll find:
Shimmering Stripes Powder Blusher ($29.50) in Tuxedo Plums. This limited edition compact features four complementary shades of plum pressed together in a beautiful striped pattern.
Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad ($25) in Black Tie Violets. A gorgeous limited edition grouping of four shimmery eye shadows contained in a sleek, mirrored compact.
Brush-On Cream Liner ($14.50) in Violet Luxe. Another limited edition offering to create an eye popping holiday look. This creamy gel liner is fast-drying, non-smudging AND waterproof!
Different Lipstick ($14) in A Different Grape. The inspiration behind this color story, A Different Grape is a dark shade of purple with hints of pink.
Full Potential Lips Plump and Shine ($17.50) in Bloomberry (limited edition), Double Plum (limited edition) and Luscious Lilac. This multi-purpose, high-shine gloss instantly gives lips a softer, more contoured look.
High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 ($14) in Extreme Pink. This long-wearing lipstick is deeply pigmented yet won’t feather. The formula is moisturizing and protects lips from harmful UVA/UVB rays (essential even in winter months!).
