Sephora x Pantone

Written by Raina. Posted in Accessories

A couple weeks ago I wrote about Pantone’s Color of the Year: Tangerine Tango. Well, the day after that, via Nylon magazines online website, I was informed that Pantone would be teaming up with Sephora to launch an exclusive, limited edition set of beauty products all based on the color of the year.

This collection is currently in Sephora stores now, and the products include nail polish, lipstick and lip gloss, blush, makeup brushes, eye shadow and eyeliner, faux lashes, and of course a makeup bag to hold all of your beautifully bright products!

The packaging of the products, to quote what is written on Sephora’s website is, “housed in an untra-sleek architectural design as a nod to the iconic Pantone chip, making this collection both a stylish and exotic addition to your makeup bag.”

Pantone doing this collection with Sephora was an exciting, and great move. It’s a fun way to play with color from two popular companies coming together. Hopefully this is something they will continue to do every year with Pantone. It allows people looking for that exact color to shop within a collection providing that exact color, and where the range of that color all compliment each other.

Sephora provides a collector’s edition set for $68 where you can sample the products. Or, you can purchase a smaller set of a product range, for example, I saw a set of four nail polishes in stores at Sephora, and a set of four lip glosses. Now, we will just have to put these products to the test and see how they really tango! Has anyone tried them yet?
