2015 Color of the Year

SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE INTRODUCING THE 2015 COLOR OF THE YEAR MARSALA A BOLD POP OF NEUTRAL Sephora + Pantone Universe introduces a complex, robust nude that reinvents and redefines neutrals with captivating dimension.
One of my favorite moments of every year is when Sephora and Pantone Universe announce the Color of the Year. They just announced the 2015 color of the year, and it is Marsala. I would describe this color as a slightly muted, very rich, reddish-brown. I am really excited to play with this color. It has a terrific mix of warm and cool tones to it, so I think it will be very flattering on any and every skintone. I was especially inspired by the picture above, with the matte lips and metallic eyes, two trends I have been really liking lately. It also immediately reminded me of three products I've been really liking, the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Spice Age I mentioned in my November Favorites, the Make Up Forever Artist Shadow in 608 I mentioned in my Fall Smokey Eye Tutorial, and the Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick in 1995 by Jaclyn Hill I mentioned in my October Favorites. I realized that apparently I've been liking this color lately, but I also realized that other than these three products, I don't really own too many products in this color. I am super excited to play with this color, but first I will need to get more of it! I will definitely do a Marsala Haul once I get a few more products in this color and I will share some of my looks as inspiration strikes me.
FRONT/CENTER: INTRODUCING MARSALALike I said, this color will look good on every skintone. It is also a great color for everyone to experiment with, not matter how much or little color you like on yourself, because it can be used in a variety of very subtle to very pigmented products and looks. My favorite thing about 2015's Color of the Year though, is that is is great on every feature. Some of the colors of years past, such as 2013's Emerald, were only good on certain features like nails and eyes (I don't really see many people wanting to try Emerald cheeks or lips for example). 2014's Radiant Orchid was also good for nails, cheeks, lips, eyes, etc., but I can see Marsala being even more universal. Clearly I am excited about this color. Sephora's collaboration collection with Pantone will be out in January, and for the meantime, they have already lined up a list of products in Marsala to get you introduced. What do you guys think? Do you like this color? Do you plan to try it? On a side note, this color instantly made me think of a specific color everyone has been obsessed with recently, Kylie Jenner's lips, and I can't help but thinking that they may have inspired 2015's color of the year. This muted, yet still potentially bold shade definitely also reminds me of that 90's Supermodel look (which can be compared to Kylie's lips too), which I love. I am very excited to play with it, and to see what everyone else creates with it!
