Holiday 2010: Clinique Strawberry Fudge…

This warm and toasty holiday collection is Inspired by one of Clinique’s most popular Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duos.  Clinique’s limited-edition Strawberry Fudge colour collection is like hot chocolate spiked with raspberry and a fall must have.

The standout star of the collection is the new Strawberry Fudge Holiday Compact for eyes and cheeks.  It is housed in a beautiful sleek silver compact with a patterned mirror and would look oh so pretty in my evening bag. I am a huge fan of palettes where you can grab one thing for the night and have all you need to update your look.

The Rundown:

  • Strawberry Fudge Holiday Compact ($36.00) This limited edition compact features a Colour Surge Eye Shadow Trio of shimmering shades in soft pink, chocolate brown, and a darker brown-grey hue to dial up the drama by applying it as a liner or to add contour. Comfortable and lightweight, these eye shadow favourites deliver luxurious, intense long lasting colour. Cheeks get the perfect hint of pink from Soft Pressed Powder Blusher in New Clover.
  • Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour in Strawberry Bliss ($17.50) A new Clinique classic, this super-shiny, smoothing gloss infuses the lips with antioxidants like Vitamin C to improve their look and feel. Yummy ingredients like Pomegranate and Açai Berry protect against environmental damage and premature aging while delivering a healthy dose of luscious colour.  This new juicy shade is just right for the holidays.
  • Defining Liner for Lips in Plush Pink ($14.00) For beautifully defined lips that last all day, this modern precision pencil goes on smooth and extends lipstick wear, helping to prevent feathering outside of the lip line or into fine lines.  Plus, its built-in sharpener is ideal for women on-the-go.

  • High Lengths Mascara in Black ($14.00) This mascara takes lashes to new lengths. The curved “willow” wand applicator follows the natural curvature of the eyes allowing the fine-toothed comb to grab each lash at its root.  Eyes look noticeably wider and fully energized.

The entire Strawberry Fudge collection is available now at Clinique counters nationwide and online at
