Spring Collections: Clinique Nude Blush

More Spring goodness, this time from Clinique! If you're into matte shadows, you're going to love the Spring 2008 Nude Blush collection - it includes 3 NEW Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duos in fabulous matte shades.

Each duo houses a larger base shade with a smaller contour color, and there's not a hint of shimmer to be found. But unlike the matte shadows of yesteryear, they're smooth and natural, never chalky.

Now, matte shadows are a staple, but what about a little something special for Spring? I'm loving the dual-ended eyeliner pencils from this collection. Cream Shaper for Eyes adds just a touch of shimmer to lashlines and is available in 4 really stunning color combinations. Chocolate shimmer is a really sophisticated way to add a little sparkle to your life, and it's perfectly executed in these shades. Love!

There are also 4 new shades of Butter Shine Lipstick, 2 blush compacts, a face powder, and a brand new mascara. Lash Power Mascara is a relatively thin formula, but doesn't flake or clump. It provides great lash separation and is fab for creating a natural-but-noticeable lash look (if you want a more dramatic look, wait a few seconds between coats). It's also remarkably glossy, like many of Clinique's mascaras. Note: This review has been added to the Encyclopedia of Mascara, check it out if you've never seen it!
