Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid

Posted by on Apr 4, 2014 in Videos | 3 comments

 

Hi Loves!!

In this week’s tutorial I used this beautiful ‘Radiant Orchid’ Color of the Year 2014 by Sephora + Pantone Universe.

Although I really liked the color, I didn’t feel like spending the money buying the eyeshadow palette… SO I bought the blush palette, which worked out perfectly!

I know  pink is NOT for everyone, but you can easily substitute it with green, blue or whatever color you prefer and still use the same idea: brown on the crease, black on the outer corner and crease, and a light color on the inner corner of your eyes.

I hope you enjoy it!

Lots of Love…….Polly

Oi Amores!

Adorei a Cor do Ano (2014) da Sephora em parceria com a Pantone Universe e por isso resolvi fazer esse look.
Como não queria gastar com a paleta de sombras, que é bem maior e mais cara, comprei a paleta de blush que funcionou super bem, além de ser mais barata. :)
Sei que nem todo mundo gosta de rosa, portanto fique a vontade para substituir o rosa por um verde, azul roial (que fica LINDO em peles morenas) ou por outra cor de sua preferência. A ideia é a mesma: marrom no côncavo, preto no canto externo e côncavo e algo claro no canto interno.

A mesma coisa serve para o batom. Caso ele seja MUITO rosa para você, um nude seria uma ótima alternativa para ser usado com a sombra rosa.

Espero que gostem!!

SEPHORA+PANTONE UNIVERSE COLOR OF THE YEAR FOR 2014 – Lipstick & Blush Palette

Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick

Hi Loves!

I’m VERY excited to share with you my thoughts on the beautiful limited- edition lipstick featuring Pantone’s color of the year for 2014: Radiant Orchid.

The white and pink square packaging is very stylish and sleek!  I love it!

The shade is a gorgeous, bright magenta with blue undertones and has a great color payoff.  It has a creamy formula and glides on decently, considering it has a matte finish.

One interesting thing about this lipstick is that it didn’t give me a matte finish right away, but only about 1 ½ hours after I applied it and it lasted me decently for 5 hours without having to touch up.

I didn’t find it super hydrating, but it didn’t leave my lips dry either like some lipsticks with a matte finish do. This one leans more towards the satin versus matte side.

Below is an excerpt from Sephora’s website that I thought it was worth mentioning:

“Infused with orchid essence for nourishment, and collagen for a subtle plumping effect, the creamy formula glides on and a satin finish and provides comfortable, all-day wear that rivals the lasting power of a lip stain.”

******* It cost $18.00 and can be found at Sephora stores and website.

Hi Loves!

Let’s talk about this super pretty limited-edition blush palette with the Sephora and Pantone Universe’s Color of the Year for 2014: Radiant Orchid!

PhotoGrid_2014-04-02_20_50_35

The blushes are enclosed in a pretty pink and white ombre palette with a mirror inside.

This Set Contains:

– Blush in Radiant Orchid (pink-purple, cool toned that I used as an eyeshadow (with an eye primer), since it would not work for me as a blush).

– Luminizer in Bridal Rose (burnt-rose, warm toned, metallic finish that is more of a blush then a luminizer as it’s way too dark to be a highlighter (on my skin, at least).

– Luminizer in Spanish Villa (golden- beige with a metallic finish that I wish it wasn’t SO metallic. If not used with moderation this shade can reveal large pores that should be hidden).

I used shade “Radiant Orchid” as eyeshadow, “Bridal Rose” as blush and “Spanish Villa” as eyeshadow AND highlighter. (I loved this year’s Color of the Year, but didn’t feel like buying the big eyeshadow palette just for that ONE color, which is why I bought this).

In ALL cases and with ALL the three shades, the color payoff was GREAT and the textures were soft, smooth and easy to blend. In addition, the colors lasted all day (about 7 hours) without fading, disappearing or creasing (on my eyes).

The only minor negative point I have to mention is that the two shades (Bridal Rose and Spanish Villa) were a bit too metallic for my taste.  But other than that, the palette is very pretty, with quality blushes (or eyeshadows) and with a very good price.

I totally recommend it!

********* It cost $26.00 at Sephora stores and website.
