With the new release of Pantone’s Color of 2014, Radiant Orchid, we’ve been inspired to dig deep in our arsenal to round up some of our favorite purple-hued beauties (and found some new favorites along the way). Blending both cool and warm undertones, purple is an appealing hue for distinctive combinations and flattering to many hair, eye and skin tones. It’s making its way onto our vanities and into our closets and we aren’t mad about it!
Makeup Forever Powder Blush in Lavender: A little goes a long way with this gorgeous violet hued blush. Treat your apples to something other than the peachy/pink variety! We especially <3 this for darker skin tones.
OCC Lip Tar in Hoochie: Only for the bold! This isn’t the first time we’ve mentioned these uber pigmented lip tars…and we love this unique color! We think it’s perfect to paint on your pout on days you’re feeling particularly vibrant.
MAC Pigment in Pink Pearl: Pigments are perfect for a subtle wash of color or built up for an intense statement. This beautiful magenta with a blue duo chrome shade is perfect for patting on the center of the lid to amp up a natural look!
Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Darling: Definitely the most tame of our selection, this is a totally wearable/every day option. It’ll gives your au naturale days a little something special!
Pantone + Sephora Lipstick in Radiant Rush: You can count on Sephora to bring out some amazing beauty bits inspired by the annual Pantone shades…we particular love this year’s lipstick in Radiant Rush. Gorgeous!
Nordstrom Travel Brush Set: Who doesn’t love travel friendly makeup brushes? We definitely do! Especially when they look this good/come with the cutest case ever.
Sachujuan Silver Shampoo: Brassy blondes listen up! This purple hued wonder, in a few washes, will renew your cool toned blonde and rid of any unwanted warm tones. A radiant miracle!
YSL Ombre 5 Lumieres in Indian Pink: This gorgeous shadow quintette offers endless orchid-inspired eye looks. Purple is the word!
Rebecca Minkoff 5-Zip Crossbody Bag: This trendy hue is starting to creep more and more into our closets…and this bag is a good place to start! This bright pop of a cross body is like candy…only its practical and you can carry things in it!
Zoya Nail Polish in Charisma: Take this trend to your tips! Glossy and gorgeous, especially on a shorter nail with a few midi-rings. We see some Instagram shots in your future.
