“Good design has the power to transform your mood,” says Jonathan Adler in reference to his new collaboration with Clinique. The ceramicist, designer, author (and now, beauty collaborator!) has lent his happy chic design eye to the iconic beauty company to create a limited-edition line of makeup that will look as good on your vanity as they will on you.

Featuring Jonathan’s highly recognizable geometric patterns and vibrant colors, the collection captures the spirit of irreverent luxury and playfulness that is signature to both Clinique and Jonathan Adler. So what does the line include? Lipsticks in fabulous packaging, eyeshadows and cheek colors, fuchsia pink brushes housed in coordinating zip up pouches, a 13-color shadow palette and a fun, printed cleansing brush with matching travel case.

And while we’re totally loving the collection, we were curious about how it came to be. Read on to hear from Jonathan and learn more!

What inspired this collection?

Jet-set glamour. I always think about iconic destinations. Places where women look like their most glamorous selves. I wanted to capture that in makeup. I thought about diving into the Aegean Sea, and being in fabulous places: Palm Beach, Florida. Capri, Italy. Santorini, Greece.

What do interior design and makeup have in common?

Good design has the power to transform your mood, like a big squishy sofa you plop into. Makeup is like that, too. It can transform a woman’s day.

What does Clinique mean to you?

Clinique is a classic, iconic brand. It’s always been in my life. I grew up with it in my mother’s and sister’s cabinets. That’s why I was so thrilled when this collaboration came about. My brand is very similar. We’re both about being classic, chic and refreshing.

What do you love most about this collection?

This collection shows that tiny treasures can bring big pleasures. It’s very chic, very classic, very Clinique. I hope everyone enjoys using it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
