Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eisman, describes this year’s colour of the year as symbolically emanating “great joy, love and health while imparting a sense of diversity.” Radiant Orchid is soft and feminine, but its boldness puts you at risk of looking garish. So, if you’re worried about looking more clownish than coy, we’ve found these incredible products that will incorporate Radiant Orchid into your beauty regimen to add playful pops of colour. Just don’t wear them all at once.
Lollitint, Benefit, $30
This liquid blush will add a candy-orchid stain to your cheeks or lips – perfect for a flushed look, and just in time for spring. Pop this product onto the apples of your cheeks and blend with your fingers… easy as that.
Royal Orchid Lipstick, Laura Mercier, $32
This lipstick by Laura Mercier is a more toned-down hue that still evokes its namesake flower. If you’re looking to add a pop of colour to your pout, this is the perfect colour to do exactly that.
Gazing Paint Liquid Eyeliner, Sephora + Pantone Universe, $22
Sephora and Pantone Universe teamed up to create the Gazing Paint Liquid Eyeliner. It provides definition to your eyes that you can apply subtly or in bold cat-eyes with the thin, precision-tip brush.
