The Lipstick League – week of 2.8.16

Question of the Week: Now that we’ve had a couple of months to process it, what are your thoughts about the Pantone 2016 Colors of the Year, Rose Quartz and Serenity (light pink and light blue)?

EauMG’s Answer: This reminds me that I need to do a perfume post of the 2016 Colors of the year. Actually, I have a lot to say about the shades which I should my thoughts into that post. This is the first time that I felt like I’ve seen the color/s before the big announcement. Like it or not, the 1980’s is in and if you follow any home blogs, you’ve seen these. These sort of muted Miami Vice shades are in (just search the hashtag “aesthetics” on Tumblr and you’ll get stuff like Drake here). This has long been a favorite color combo at the super posh rich hippie store, ABC Home. Actually, posh rich, nouveau hippie is in so it doesn’t surprise me at all to see some “woo” colors like this that bring to mind meditation and crystals. And in beauty, pastel hair and muted mauve-y shades have been in with the younger crowd for years now. To me, it reminds me of rich lesbian in the 1980’s, so you better believe I freaking love it.
