Pantone has named Radiant Orchid the color of the year (and look, it’s in the 18 “phylum,” just like Rouge18, which is named after this shade). This hue is rich, it’s pretty, it’s obviously girly and it’s going to look great on your MOUTH. Here are some new products to rock immediately in the tone.
Benefit’s latest stain is KILLER, and I mean killer. It looks fabulous on lips or cheeks and lasts foreVER, in the sage words of “The Sandlot”‘s Squints Pomidorus. If you’re a fan of PosieTint, BeneTint and ChachaTint (and if you aren’t…. WHAT?), you will adore the latest iteration.
The best gloss consistency I’ve used in a long time, this sponge-applicator creamy lacquer nourishes lips while imparting a gleam on the level of Mandy Moore’s “Missing you like candy; love always, Mandy” lips of yore.
BITE Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Violet ($24)
This is a matte spin on the Pantone color. Bite’s luxe formulas keep lips looking festive without pout dry-out, nor a reflective finish.
What do you think of Pantone’s new color of the year?
