Pink Chocolates for the Holidays

A while back I gave you a sneak peek at one of the items from Clinique's super fantastic holiday collection, Pink Chocolates.


The collection is finally available...

Which means that you can now purchase this little gem:

This is the Shimmering Tones Powder in limited edition Pink Chocolates. The photo does not do it any amount of justice. It is exquisite. In fact, it's my absolute favorite item from the collection and I've been using it every day since I acquired it.

This translucent pink compact is a shimmery checkerboard of pinks and browns, and works in many lovely ways.

Swirled together, it's a great highlighter for cheekbones, or all over the face. When I'm wearing an otherwise matte face, I even use it as blush. (Note: even with all the swirling, the pretty checkerboard pattern has remained intact!)

The pale pink is a perfect highlighter for browbones and inner corners, the coppery pink taupe is a great base eyeshadow, and the darker cocoa color looks so pretty applied wet as a liner.

The colors work together beautifully and I imagine they would look equally fab on a variety of skintones. In fact, I am so sure of this that I'm buying this compact, along with the matching pink-handled Bronzer/Blender brush, for all my friends and family for Christmas...if they don't sell out first!
