Just like we saw on the runways, nude makeup is huge for spring. Clinique's new collection, out next month, is completely on-trend. The Nude Blush line uses matte and shimmer elements to play off each other, but there's enough color to keep you from looking bland or washed out.


The collection includes a few new products. First up is Blended Face Powder in Invisible Blend ($18.50), a new shade of loose powder that should work on most skin tones. Additionally, four Colour Surge eye shadow duos ($17.50) bring matte colors to your eyes. (And since they're shimmer-free, they're ideal for "mature" eyes.) Finally, there's a new mascara, Lash Power ($14), which I just tried out and will review for you shortly.

There are also some gorgeous, simple limited-edition Colour Surge Butter Shine lipsticks ($14), Blushing Blush compacts ($18.50), and Cream Shaper eye pencils ($13.50). All in all, it's pretty and natural-looking—just the kind of thing that's in style these days.
