Weeks ago, I shared with y’all a nail polish roundup featuring Pantone’s Colour of the Year – Radiant Orchid. Originally, I had mixed feelings about its promotion from humble lavender to glorified purple, but after re-examining the shade with curiosity and an open mind, I’ve since come to love it. And I suppose Pantone says it best:
“Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.”
Cruising the Cover Girl site today, I found a wealth of radiant orchid-inspired hues that are too pretty not to share. From eye-enhancing eye shadows to lip-perfecting gloss balms, Cover Girl cosmetics are an easy (breezy beautiful) and affordable way to rock a trend.
