03 Sep (Review, Photos, Swatches) Milly for Clinique for Fashion’s Night Out
If there’s one thing I absolutely love — it’s a designer cosmetic case. It’s a thing of beauty, a complete job to carry around, and a makeup statement piece.
Milly’s collaboration with Clinique is a swirl of purple and white beauty: a feast for the senses and a cosmetics bag that is filled with goodies. In New York City, the designer will be at the Clinique counter on the main cosmetics floor at Bloomingdale’s at 59th Street from 5 to 8pm, to discuss her new Milly for Clinique gift. While you mingle with everyone, you can ask Clinique beauty experts tips about makeup and also pose for photos.
The Milly for Clinique GWP is exclusive to Bloomingdale’s with any Clinique purchase of $25 or more from August 31st through September 18th.
I typically don’t cover GWPs because there are way too many that crop up, but this one is truly special and worth your time and money at the Clinique Bloomie’s counter. Take a look:
The makeup bag is absolutely stunning with jewel tones. A head turner!
I especially love the brush holder: too hip to actually be used.
The collection offers a dual-ended instant lift for brows (shown here in Soft Blonde 01: brow sculptor and highlighter) as well as an antioxidant lip color (shown here in Strawberry Bliss)
Also includes Take the Day Off and Dramatically Different Moisturizer
And the Color Surge eyeshadow duo/ soft powder blusher compact…
The eye shadows are from the Totally Neutral Trio; the Blush Powder is called New Clover
This is the shade Strawberry Bliss in the sunlight…
It gives a glaze with a hint of frost when applied on the lips
While the eye shadow and blush colors are not super pigmented, they really embody the look “Totally Neutral” which is what I’m seeing a lot of in the summer and fall (remember Becca’s “Lost Weekend Palette” and Charlotte Ronson for Sephora?)
The collection also includes the High Lengths Mascara
I’m curious to hear your thoughts on Milly for Clinique. Do you love the colors? The shades? Let us know in the comments section below.
