What to do with Pantone's Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

The color gods have spoken and they decreed the Pantone Color of the Year to be Radiant Orchid.  This soft shade of purple-pink emanates confidence and magical warmth and is both intriguing to the eye and sparks the imagination.  For this reason, we embraced this captivating color trend to bring you a round up of our favorite Radiant Orchid beauty products.

Give lids a purple pop with Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow. The new formula features even softer, amazingly velvety texture; richer, more dense and decadent color; smoother, more uniform pigment distribution and blendability; and longer-lasting, more crease-free wear. The secret to our formula is our Pigment Infusion System™. A vehicle for color, it’s what holds tightly onto pigment and gives the formula its glide and insane color payout.

Never before has a pencil this creamy and brilliant been waterproof, too. Velvety-soft, this never-before-seen formula stays soft and creamy for blending, then dries down to a long-lasting finish that will not budge. Line eyes with a hint of Asphyxia – a spot on Radiant Orchid-like vibrant pink/purple duotone with micro sparkle.

A signature shade in a signature tin, CARGO’s variation on radiant orchid creates the perfect look. The soft and velvety formula has a silky feel and delivers a pigment-rich, long-lasting and even application. The formula includes Barbadensis Leaf Extract and Vitamin E that hydrate the delicate eyelid skin and protect it from environmental damage. Silica and Jet-milled Talc help provide a smooth, velvety feel and even application.
