Available Holiday 2014, the time of year in which “The Nutcracker” is performed, the collection is inspired by the characters, costumes and scenery of the performance. The Nutcracker Suite offers the perfect palette for a pretty holiday look — from day to night — celebrating the spirit of the performance.
The collection includes two “acts” inspired by different aspects of the performance. Each act features a colour compact containing an eye shadow quad with a coordinating Blushing Blush Powder Blush shade, along with two complementary shades of Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm. Both acts are completed with the NEW! Blended Face Powder and brush in Snowflake Dreams.
The Nutcracker Act I Compact ($36.00): Inspired by the dazzling dance of the Snowflakes, The Nutcracker Act I color compact includes a Snowflake Suite eyeshadow quad in soft pinks and sultry tones, and a delicate pink Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Plié Pink.
The Nutcracker Act II Compact ($36.00; above): Inspired by the whimsical land of the Sugar Plum Fairy, The Nutcracker Act II color compact includes a Sugar Plum Suite eyeshadow quad that couples beautiful plum shades with shimmering white and silver tones, paired with a flushed pink Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Tutu Pink.
The Nutcracker Blended Face Powder in Snowflake Dreams ($24.00): The NEW! Blended Face Powder in Snowflake Dreams was created to mirror the shimmering elegance of the performance. Perfect for shoulders, neck and chest, the new powder imparts a beautiful shimmer — ideal for any holiday party.
Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($17.00): The super-nourishing, multitasking chubby stick lip balms are loaded with mango and shea butters as well as antioxidants to help pamper and protect lips.
