Lippie Review: Pantone + Sephora Color of the Year Collaboration!

pantone sephora

Sephora has become my new best friend (I don't know if that's good or bad) and being that I have been there constantly for the past 2 months I've been hip on the new products and collaborations to hit the shelves.  One collaboration I was eagar to try was the Pantone + Sephora collection.

If you don't know who Pantone is, they are the color masters of the world.  Being the biggest and probably the top color company to go to, they provide thousands of color swatches, products, and services including trend reports for each season and each year of what colors will be, or should be used.  This year however is the first time ever that TWO colors are "the color of the year".

Serenity and Rose Quartz are light, soft, and very much colors for spring and even in fall, so there's no question on why these colors were picked.

The color of the year layer lipsticks not only comes in packaging that is almost something you want to collect, but the formula of the lipstick is very creamy, not drying, not sticky, and long lasting.  Best of all you can pair these two for a bomb ass ombre.

Another feature item in their colletion is the modern watercolor lipgloss set consisting of 6 pantone water colors including both Serenity & Rose Quartz, but also including Cantalope, Fox Glove, Pale Banana, & Sunlit Allium.

Unfortunately, I didn't like this set at all.  Not only was the application of these glosses horrible (applying 5+ times just to see and feel shine) but all of the colors looked the same on the lips. Understanding that these are depicting and mimicking watercolors, the end result fails epically.  There were even Sephora asociates who said this lip gloss set sucked...major balls.

All in all I give the lipsticks a 4.5 out of 5 and the lip glosses a 0.  I do not recommend anyone buy the lip gloss set, you can get better quality lip gloses at your locaak beauty supply for $2 (if you're from the hood you understand).
