This throw Back Thursday doesn’t go back as well far, but it features the colour orange which is suitable for Halloween coming up. Just 3 years ago, Sephora partnered with Pantone (the universal colour authority) to promote the colour of the year. In 2012, the colour was Tangerine Tango:
It’s a deep reddish orange that equates well into a range of cosmetics products including blush, eye shadows, lipsticks as well as nail polish. Not being able to pass up anything restricted edition, I purchased this quad:
Sephora + Pantone world color of the Year – Eyeshadow Quad
Firstly, the packaging. This truly drew me in – when I bought this, I had not gotten my hands on the Inglot flexibility System palettes yet, however now that I have the Inglot, it’s rather obvious that the Sephora packaging is a total replica of that.
The colours in the quad are all shimmery, clockwise from upper left corner:
Sparrow: sooty deep brown (satin)
Pavement: charcoal with silver shimmer (more like glitter)
Scallop Shell: light peach shimmer
Carnelian: burnt orange with warm shimmer
This quad expense CAD $34 as well as includes 2.2g of each shade for a overall of 8.8g of product, as well as was made in USA. It’s a amazing value as well as quite good quality. The two darker shades on top were somewhat drier compared the bottom two however not poor overall. The only problem avoiding it from being a standalone combination is the absence of a matte shift type shade, however it’s not a significant deal. I like using Sparrow in the crease, Scallop shell for inner highlight, as well as Carnelian in the center of the lid for a pop of colour.
The 2012 Sephora + Pantone colour of the year Tangerine Tango was complied with up with:
2014: Radiant Orchid
I will state right here that I’m rather gutted that I missed out on Marsala this year, I truly really desired that blush trio palette. But I made a guarantee to my No-Buy, so I didn’t get it!
Have any of you purchased any type of of the Sephora + Pantone items? Any predictions what Pantone’s 2016 colour might potentially be? I’m believing something golden / mustard or blue!
