Clinique Nutcracker Collection | Review/Swatches

Clinique Nutcracker Collection

I'm a little bit late sharing this post with you guys as this collection was released just before christmas but better late than never eh, the two palettes are still available but I'm not so sure about the face powder.

The two palettes each consist of 4 eyeshadows and a blusher, a double ended applicator and a blush brush. These come packaged in a mirrored casing and a large size mirror on the inside, I would say the palettes are roughly hand size so quite a large compact.

I love how they have put together 4 eyeshadows which can be used to complete a full look and then a blusher to go with it. The eyeshadows are buttery soft and pigmentation pay off is not bad either in fact with a decent primer the colour pay off is pretty amazing. The fact the compacts come in a mirrored casing really gives these two compacts a luxury feel.

The Blended Face Powder I would most likely use as a highlighter as it contains a large amount of shimmery glitter, however the glitter particles are feather light so not harsh on the skin at all, this powder would also work amazingly along the collar bone for a night out.

Generally the palettes have to be my favourite, I have been using them daily to create subtle looks and added the fourth shade if I really want to intensify the look. As a part of this collection they also released Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturising Lip Colour Balms which are also still available.
Palettes £35.00 each.
