The Lipstick League – week of 2.27.17

Question of the Week: Do you plan to incorporate the Pantone 2017 Color of the Year (Greenery) into your beauty looks this year? If so, how?

EauMG’s Answer: Not really. It’s just not a flattering color on me. However, I did buy an eyeliner in Mexico that is very Greenery-ish. I’ve worn it once. Like I said, these sort of yellow-y greens aren’t flattering on me. But, as

EauMG’s Perfume Guide to Pantone’s Color of the Year 2017 – Greenery

Pantone Greenery

It’s said that the 2017 Pantone® Color of the Year Greenery is inspired by the first days of spring. It’s meant to represent renewal and connecting with nature.

EauMG’s Perfume Picks for Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year – Radiant Orchid

Pantone Radiant Orchid

Pantone® announced the color of 2014, Radiant Orchid. Pantone describes it as“an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones” that “inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health.” Personally, I think this will be a great “cosmetic” color and I partially think this is why it was chosen (licensing agreements).
