Sephora+Pantone Universe Radiant Orchid Collection

It’s been a few months since Pantone announced that the color of the year was Radiant Orchid, so you’ve had plenty of time to acquaint yourself to the bold hue. You may have even added a few accessories in the hot color to your wardrobe, or maybe you’re still on the lookout for the perfect piece in Radiant Orchid. Sephora has teamed with Pantone to bring you a new collection of beauty buys that make it easy to incorporate Radiant Orchid into your beauty routine. No more swatching, comparing and guessing in store, because the Sephora+Pantone Universe Color of the Year Collection is a perfectly coordinated set that will have you glowing all year long.

Past collections have included just a few items (remember Tangerine Tango?) to a few more, but the Radiant Orchid collection is a full-blown set of goods you can use from start to finish. There are the requisite lipstick and nail polishes, but in addition, there are blush palettes, a multi-use palette and even a brush set that you can use to apply it all. There are even multiple finishes, so gals that go matte on the lips can enjoy the color just as much as those who prefer to go glossy.

Our favorite piece is the lipstick, it’s got a great formula which we’ve been obsessed with since the Tangerine Tango days. According to Sephora PRO Artist Gilbert Soliz, you can get multiple looks from just one bullet. “For a blurred effect, press on Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick with your finger. Concentrate pigment in the center, softening and spreading color to the outer edges,” says Soliz. For a bolder look, “Control color intensity by patting on high-pigment lipstick with a lip brush: Start at the edges and work your way in. You’ll not only create a crisp, clean lip line, but you’ll build an even, saturated base.”

To get a taste of the collection, grab the Radiant Femme Artistry Set, which gives beauty junkies a sampling of the entire collection, with exclusive shades of cream blush and body luminizer in addition to an instructional card so you can get different looks from the kit. But if you just want a bit of Radiant Orchid, opt for the liquid liner. It’s a small step you can add to your makeup routine to get big impact. “To create a vivid wing,” adds Soliz, “glide Gazing Paint Liquid Liner from the center of lash lines toward the outer corners, angling the line slightly upward toward the temples. Tilt your head back to check for symmetry.”
