Radiant Orchid | Pantone Color of the Year 2014

As many of you know, Pantone is the "authority on color." For 2014, they announced that the color of the year was Radiant Orchid. The focus is on different shades of purples/pinks, mostly with purple tones.

I gathered together all of the items I had that could fall into the "Radiant Orchid" category. Here is what I mustered up:
- Maybelline ColorSensational High Shine Lipgloss in Flash of Pink
- Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey
- Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart
- Korres Lip Butter in Quince
- Essie Under Where?
- Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palette in Floral Values
- MAC Fig 1
- Nars Amour

I hope to use many of these items as the color theme this year is beautiful!

  1. Great picks! Fave is the nail varnish :)

  2. Yes! Thank goodness its orchid this year. i still remember that..emerald color a few years back..and that orange! I guess Sephora will be launching a new collection with Pantone this year again! I'm actually anticipating this one since it's more wearable than the last... :)

    1. I would love to see how Sephora and Pantone will be collaborating this year. Radiant Orchid is definitely more wearable then Emerald, (although I think emerald is beautiful)

  3. These are just gorgeous! Orchid is definitely a gorgeous shade!

    1. Definitely! I love that there are a variety of shades that are considered orchid.

  4. That nail polish is gorgeous! I have been wanting the Revlon Balm Stain in Honey love the color!

  5. That Nars blush looks gorgeous. It all does to be fair :)

  6. I'm so excited for this color! I think Radiant Orchid no only sounds beautiful, but looks beautiful too! :)

    Thanks for the great recommendations!

  7. Nice post Des! You picked out a nice range of shades. I was thinking of doing this sort of post too, but I only own Orchid-like nail colors, so that would give us much variety. I think I may have some lip colors though. :-) I just wore Essie's Under Where shade last week.

    1. You can always do a post of the orchid like nail polishes! I would be interested in that =)

      Isn't it such a great shade!?

  8. What a great post! I also need to look through my make up stash to dig up colour of the year! :) You have some great picks in here!

    P.S. Please can you remove your captcha from your blog so it is easier to comment on the posts!

  9. Lovely picks! I love the Essie shade, would love to try that one x
    Sweet Dreams

  10. ok. you simply can't go wrong w/ revlon's honey. i can't think of /anyone/ that would look bad in it and its always the first shade i suggest to someone who just wants a neutral lip perfecting color. MAC's fig 1 looks really pretty! will have to swatch next time i'm in store.
    A Beautiful Zen

  11. Loving the Radiant Orchid theme this year! I own Revlon Honey and Sweetheart and NARS Amour- they're all among my faves! And you're definitely tempting me with that Korres lip balm :)
