Happy New Year, everyone! As you may know by now, for the first time ever this year, Pantone is combining two colors for its Color of the Year 2016: Rose Quartz (13-1520) and Serenity (15-3919). For those of us who are not only color and design geeks, but also love charming humanoid female cartoon characters, this is a joyous situation!
Whether you’re into both the pale pink of Rose Quartz and the soft periwinkle of Serenity, or are shy about color but want to try one of them this season, you’re in luck. There are plenty of cosmetics brands creating products to satisfy your hankering for these hues. Here are a few of my favorites:
SEPHORA+PANTONE UNIVERSE Color of the Year Lipsticks
These shades come in a nourishing formula and gorgeous packaging, easy to mix and match with your existing beauty regimen. There are several products to explore in this year’s collection at Sephora, but the lipstick options and eyeshadow palette in particular are all over my radar right now.
I will definitely be trying out some of these products soon and sharing the results with you all. In the image below are a couple of the looks I found particularly pretty.
essie nail polish – lapiz of luxury
Beautiful blue tone! This is one I already have, as I’m a huge fan of periwinkles. Find it at essie.com or Target.
MAKEUP FOREVER Artist Eyeshadow and Powder Blush – Fairly Pink and Periwinkle
These shadows can be purchased individually, and make a great addition to your compact or kit. Get them online or in store at Sephora.
