Spring 2011: Milly for Clinique Pretty in Pinks Collection

It's come to my attention that I haven't given enough praise to the product line, Clinique. Yes, it's true that I don't use much of their skin care products anymore (except All About Eyes...amazing) and it's also true that I don't use many of their cosmetics either despite that my mom is a Clinique rep. (Ironic, I know.) But, the fact is, it's been eons since I was blown away by one of their beauty products. That is, until about a month ago. While searching online one evening, I discovered the cutest, most versatile palette I've seen in quite some time. And, get this, the brand was Clinique. This palette is filled with beautiful pinks and browns for the "woman on-the-go looking to update her look for spring". These words quoted from Michelle Smith, who's the designer for Milly, teamed up with Clinique to create a collection that's easy to wear and filled with the essential combinations for spring. And that's exactly how I'd describe the collection: simple, natural, and sexy. Needless to say, I wanted both the Pretty in Prints Compact AND the Milly Pink Gloss. So, I did what any girl with connections would do, I asked my mom for them. And she, like any amazing mom would do, bought them for me as an early birthday gift. The color is the lip gloss is fabulous. I quite like all the Long Last Glosswear colors normally but this one is exceptionally pretty because of the color. Look at how pink it is? The palette comes in a cute, brightly decorated pouch and accompanied by a laminated instruction manual. (Just in case you didn't know where the colors were supposed to go...ha) The palette itself has four eyeshadows ( in Printed Pinks) and one beautiful rosy blush (in Precious Posy). I like this palette because it contains all the colors you need for daytime touch-ups and evenings out, in a slim purse-sized compact. I can not wait to try these colors out later. Thanks Mom!! XO

  6. Wow - that's pretty! I think the case itself is so cute I could have bought just for that!

  7. That is a really gorgeous pallette! I haven't tried Cliniques products yet, I think I need to now. Great post!

  8. Oooh that palette looks really nice! I bagged myself a Clinque palette a while ago as a GWP and I really like it.

    I tend to underrate Clinique but they seem to have some really nice things in terms of cosmetics.
