There’s so much fun and innovation coming out of Clinique right now! They’ve partnered again with the fashion label Milly by the Michelle Smith, and this time created a limited edition Pretty in Prints color collection for spring. If you couldn’t tell by my post from Milly’s recent Fall 2011 runway show (yes, I was there!), I want everything she puts her name on (except peddle pusher shorts). Her choice of silhouette, color and patterns are so happy, youthful and fabulously styled! And the Clinique cosmetic set she designed is no exception.
The Pretty in Prints collection is very natural and feminine mixing rich browns and soft pinks that are perfect for spring! The Pretty in Prints Compact ($36) includes a Colour Serge Eye Shadow Quad in “Printed Pinks” which contains an Ivory shade, a gold metallic/greenish brown shade, a rosy pink color and a deep purplish brown eye shadow as well as the Blushing Blush Powder Blush in “Precious Posey”, which is a warm light pink blush.
Additionally, she created a limited edition signature pink lipgloss shade in Clinique’s Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 ($14), appropriately named ‘Milly Pink’. The color is a very light pink sheer lipgloss that’s both feminine and subtle in tint but makes your lips so smooth and shiny –it’s a thicker formula, but it stays put and feels hydrating (plus it has SPF 15!).
And because I’m a super-Milly fan, I have to say that even before trying the makeup, I was hooked on the pouch case it came in (which is inspired by a couture 1960s print)– I literally want a 100 of them so I can be pretty in this print and turn it into a dress!
