Lisa Herbert, Vice President of the Fashion, Home and Consumer Division of Pantone had this vision over two years ago that the Pantone color Tangerine Tango was going to be big. She was tired of being careful with color and felt like it was time to make a statement, as she knew that shades of reds/oranges would always be in fashion. Launched today on 14th Street and 9th Avenue, her dream has come true. For the first time ever, The Color of the Year (COY) has launched a beauty collection that features the 2012 Color of the Year, Pantone 17-1463, Tangerine Tango!
Me with Lisa Herbert
Sephora, the leading beauty retailer, and Pantone LLC, the global color authority, have created a unique partnership to change how you wear, feel and think about color.
To celebrate the launch of Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Collection, Sephora introduced the Sephora + Pantone Universe Pop-Up Color Shop. Exclusively showcasing Tangerine Tango from March 22nd through March 30th, Sephora invites everyone to explore the new collection while receiving personalized applications and color advice. As I stepped into the color capsule, I felt a bit more cheery as the color orange made me feel a bit brighter. I fell in love with the sleek packaging that is reminiscent of my Pantone book that I use at my marketing company.
I even wore an orange shirt to the event to show my sunnier side. Normally, in black, I was immediately transformed into a visually brighter and more colorful self. The Pantone color of the year is Pantone 17-1463 and will be available at Sephora stores and sephora.com for a LIMITED TIME ONLY.
The Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Capsule Collection includes:
The most coveted pieces from the collection, an all-in-one box for $68.00; included are the color of the year eyeliner, eyeshadow quad, prisma chrome blush, blush duo and the crème lipstick and gloss.
Color of the Year Crème Lipstick, $18 – is a creamy, silky finish lipstick in a beautifully clean, white packaging. It’s a gel-based formula that offers a long-lasting color and all day wear.
Color of the Year Lip Gloss Set, $20 – are fluid lip glosses that leave your lips feeling smooth and shiny. There are four different finishes to help customize your look.
Color of the Year Eye Shadow Quad, $28 – has four rich powder shadows that compliment any look and were designed specifically to harmonize with one another. Apply wet or dry, depending on the look you desire.
Color of the Year Eyeliner Set, $22 – includes a set of three coordinating eye liners in Tangerine Tango Twist, Chestnut (Brown) and Meteorite (Black). They are automatic pencils which allow for a more precise line.
Color of the Year Prisma Chrome Blush Apricot Brandy, $16- this high definition blush glides onto the skin and offers a pop of color. It also leaves a soft, luminous sheen.
Color of the Year Blush Duo, $26 – creamy to the touch, yet light when applied, this transparent powder offers optimal adherence and a natural wash of color.
Color of the Year Nail Enamel Set, $24 – four polishes, packaged beautifully with four different finishes (crème, shimmer, glitter and matte) for a customized nail statement.
All of my fellow beauty bloggers, writers and beautynistas that wore these colors looked amazing and brighter. It did not matter their ethnicity or overall coloring…Tangerine Tango will work on everyone!
