3 Ways To Wear Pantone’s Color Of The Year on Your Lips
Beauty and fashion gurus know that December means the holidays, pumpkin-spice lattes, sparkle… and the announcement of the Pantone shade for the coming year and incorporating it into their repertoires early. For 2014, it’s all about Radiant Orchid, a blue-based candy pink and it’s going to look epic on your lips. Here are three ways to wear it for your upcoming holiday parties. I’m partial to pairing it with a subtly metallic lid (think sheer gold or white shimmer) and pink cheeks.
L’Oreal Colour Riche Colour Caresse in Velvety Fuchsia ($10) yields a translucent, but pigmented pout in its wake and doesn’t skimp on hydration.
CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lip Color in Spellbound ($7) moisturizes lips and actually improves their condition while imparting a cream color infusion that won’t quit. No, really. I once woke up still wearing it the morning after a wedding. Get involved.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Sugar Violet ($8) packs a long-lasting lacquered effect in a near-neon that recalls the shiny lips of one Miss Mandy Moore of yore. Circa “Candy,” you know the one.
What are your thoughts on this year’s Pantone hue? Yay or nay?
