2014 Color of the year : Radiant Orchid


Earlier this year, the color pro’s at Pantone announced the color of the year to be Radiant Orchid. This color is trickling down into both beauty and fashion and I absolutely love it. Such an exciting and beautiful color for spring and summer! The rosy undertones in Radiant Orchid give a healthy glow to the skin in a charming and lively way. The perfect mix of warm and cool undertones, this color will flatter so many different skin, hair and eye combinations. I am really looking forward to playing with this color in both makeup and fashion. Now let’s get to the goods – The reason I am posting about this today, is that Sephora came out with an exclusive line of Radiant Orchid inspired goodies that I thought my makeup loving friends might enjoy. Of course when I heard that Sephora had come out with a collection inspired by this beautiful color I immediately took to to compile my wish list. Here are a few of my favs…

{Sephora has their own collection and on the website, they also grouped together colors from all different brands that fit the Radiant Orchid palette}

My Radiant Orchid picks…


1. Sephora Pantone Universe Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick 


2. Beauty Blender – Royal


3.  YSL – Rouge Pur Couturevernis a Leevres Glossy Stain – #1.


4. YSL – Rouge Pur Couturevernis a Leevres Glossy Stain – #16. This bad boy is high on my want list, hopefully I’ll be aquiring it this week :).
