"The Nutcracker" is a classic Christmas performance. Since it was first performed in 1892, this world-renowned perennial holiday classic is brought to life by the internationally recognized American Ballet Theatre, America's National Ballet Company. Well, two timeless classics have joined together for a beautifully choreographed collaboration, as Clinique and American Ballet Theatre have launched The Nutcracker Suite, a makeup collection.
The collection captures the beauty and grace of this classic performance from start to finish. Inspired by the characters, costumes and scenery of the performance, the makeup is simply stunning. Think snowflakes and sugarplums...

This colour compact includes a Snowflake Suite ($36) eye shadow quad in soft pinks and sultry tones along with a delicate pink Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Plié Pink. To complement the quad, there is Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($17) in Budding Blossom. This delicate pink is inspired by the whimsical land of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Finish the look with the new Blended Face Powder ($24) in Snowflake Dreams. This powder was created to mirror the shimmering elegance of the ballet performance and it is gorgeous.
