Radiant Orchid Beauty

As you probably know, Radiant Orchid is the Colour of the Year. When I first found this out, I was so, so excited! I love a good lilac/orchid product, and I think that this colour looks beautiful on lips, cheeks, eyes, nails, and fashion. Good job Pantone! I thought that I would round up my favourite Radiant Orchid Beauty products and share them with you today :)

Radiant Orchid Beauty

Lips

YSL Glossy Stain Rebel Nudes #108 Violine Out of Control* - I absolutely love the Glossy Stain formula, and this shade is no exception. This shade is one of the sheerer options from the line, but 3 layers will give you a nice colour.

YSL Rouge Volupté Shine #19 Fuchsia in Rage - This colour looks quite purple in the bullet, but once swatched you can definitely see more of the pink tones. This formula from YSL is creamy, hydrating, and the packaging is simply amazing!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Sugar Violet* - This gloss is quite sheer once swatched, but I think that it's gorgeous worn either on its' own or over top of lipstick. This formula isn't sticky and it's very comfortable to wear.

Maybelline Color Elixir in Dashing Orchid* - This is a bit of a darker orchid shade, but it definitely still fits into the category! I absolutely love the Color Elixir formula - it's creamy, hydrating, not sticky, and I think that they have just the right amount of pigmentation.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Vivid Violet* - This is another darker orchid shade, with a bit of shimmer in the mix. I really like this formula from Smashbox - the pigmentation is good, and the formula is long wearing.

Cheeks

Benefit Hervana - This blush has been in my collection for a while, and I've recently rediscovered it. This shade is the perfect option when you just don't know what to pair with a bold eye or lip. The four shades of this blush swirl together to create a beautiful lilac pink. 

Benefit Lollitint* - This product can be worn on the cheeks and lips, but I do find it fairly drying on my lips. This stain is no nonsense, and really will stick around all day long. If you have oily skin, you might want to check out Benefit's stains because they won't budge! 

Nails

Lancôme Vernis in Love Brilliance Gloss Polish #419B Violette Coquette* - This polish is just beautiful! The formula is pigmented and dries to a very shiny finish. The brush has a curved tip, which hugs your cuticle for a flawless application. 

Lancome Nail Polish

Eyes

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Golden Orchid* - I've been reaching for this shade a lot lately! The formula is so smooth, creamy, pigmented, and long-wearing. This shade is a bit cooler than the other radiant orchid options, but it definitely still works!

Tools

Revlon Diamond Collection Tweezer* - If you like the idea of radiant orchid, but you're not ready to actually wear it, you can pick up some orchid beauty tools! These tweezers from Revlon are so cute, and I love the studs!

  7. I have to say, I wasn't feeling this colour when it was first announced, but now I'm absolutely loving it -- moreso on my nails than anything, but it is really so gorgeous, and much needed after such a crap winter.
