To ease you into your new favorite color, SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE have released their 2014 Color of the Year Radiant Orchid Collection. A line full of petal-soft to vividly intense purple hues. Eyes, lips, cheeks (yes!) and nails will be dripping in this royally appealing color. Some other great items from the collection include:
I got to smother my lips in the Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick, a limited-edition shade infused with orchid essence for nourishment and collagen for a subtle plumping effect. I wouldn’t say this lipstick is completely matte — more of a comfortable satin finish. On me, it applied smoothly and gave off a purple-pink hue, instantly brightening my entire face.
The next product that even I was a little wary to try (I’ll admit my makeup fears!) was the Rush Luster Cheek Sweep with a purple cheek color hue and 2 corresponding luminizer shades. I wore this cheek look without a full eye, just to let the pop of color work its magic.
The blush provided a flawless effect and made me look all glowy and happy. You can tone down the purple by using the 2 Luminizers in Bridal Rose and Spanish Villa. It’s a fun little cheek palette that will look great with a tan come July.
And although the new SEPHORA COLLECTION Moonshadow Baked Palette In The Tropics is separate from the SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Collection, I couldn’t help but want to try out the 3 purple shades: Grenada (deep pearly purple), Bermuda (sparkly light orchid purple) and Fiji (silver shimmery lilac).
I actually did apply these shadows with a damp brush to contain their minor fallout you usually find with baked shadows. The shine was intense and the liquid-like formula really lasted throughout the day. They are certainly eye-catching and would be great for nighttime (or daytime, who doesn’t want to sparkle 24/7?).
