First performed in 1892, The Nutcracker is a timeless ballet and holiday classic filled with charming characters, lovely scenes and of course, exquisite music by P.I. Tchaikovsky. The American Ballet Theater annually showcases The Nutcracker, bringing in millions of visitors. And now, Clinique has collaborated with The American Ballet Theater to capture the essence of The Nutcracker and put it into The Nutcracker Suite Holiday 2014 Collection.
The dance of the Snowflakes inspired The Nutcracker Act I Compact ($36) and the land of the Sugar Plum Fairy influenced The Nutcracker Part II Compact ($36). Kyle Ridaught, Director of Development at the American Ballet Theater, says that “the collaboration between the two brands was a natural fit based on our shared brand aesthetic of classic elegance, which allowed us to work together like a beautifully choreographed ballet.”
The Nutcracker Act I Compact includes a gorgeous array of soft pinks and sultry tones in the Snowflake Suite eyeshadow quad, and a Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Plié Pink, a delicate shade of pink. The Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Budding Blossom ($17) and the The Nutcracker Blended Face Powder in Snowflake Dreams ($24) complement the compact.
